    It will be interesting to see how it goes for Colorado and Washington for the next year. If it goes well, with the money at stake, it’s likely to spread quickly to other states.

    It’s not a big deal for supporters? That’s strictly a beltway view. The cannabis laws are the central mechanism of the culture war which conservatives have been waging in this country since the days of Nixon. This is a huge issue with global implications.

    The big banks chronically engaged in drug money laundering and the prison industrial complex profiting from high incarceration rates and slave labor haven’t desired decriminalization/legalization, since it threatens their profits, with billions at stake annually. The politicians accepting campaign contributions from these profiteers will reflect their purposes with some “moral” window-dressing.
