Hold on to your hats sports fans. 2016 is an epic year for cannabis in America as we fight back against the racketeers and prohibitionists that created the Drug War and incarcerated millions of freedom-seeking Americans. Within 24 hours proud Americans will learn which of the nine states (Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, Maine, Massachusetts, Montana, Nevada and North Dakota) have voted in the majority for the legalization of recreational marijuana use.
Currently, about half the country has legalized the use of medical marijuana for adults over age 21, and four states plus D.C. have already legalized its recreational use (Alaska, Colorado, Oregon, and Washington).
This election cycle could bring much-needed momentum to the cause. We could be waking up on November 9 to find that about 25% of Americans have clawed back a bit of their personal freedom. Just think, approximately 82 million Americans live in these states. For me, that would truly be a dream come true – the fact that I live in California notwithstanding.
“If we’re successful, it’s the beginning of the end of the war on marijuana,” claims Gavin Newsom, Lt. Governor of the State of California and a Former Mayor of the City of San Francisco. “If California moves, it will put more pressure on Mexico and Latin America at large to reignite a debate on legalization there (as well).”
