Regardless if you agree, disagree, or if you’re ambivalent – Oregon voters said yes. It’s a historic day here. While I don’t encourage or discourage its use among consenting adults, I do hope that people view the issue contextually and not judge a person who might have a different perspective.
To that, let’s hope the Federal Government does not see states with new laws as enemies in the midst. Whatever hiccups and misunderstandings there might be going forward, the states and Washington D.C. should work out their differences and find a good path in the legitimate market. That’s where people are going with this. The culture is out in the open, the genie out of the bottle, it’s not a matter of if but when, etc. Time to move forward, not back towards jail.
