Colorado and Washington are the U.S.'s crowning achievements this year for legalizing recreational marijuana. College kids nationwide no longer have to slum it in Amsterdam to experience the joys of legal weed when a simple road trip just a few states over will do the trick (and save a shit ton of money to spend on legal greens).
Also with more and more states legalizing medicinal marijuana, we here at TheNug predict that this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to evolving legislation.
So thank you, voters, smokers, activists, and politicians (well, maybe not politicians...) for fighting the good fight toward legalization. Last year, there was no legal recreational weed in America. Maybe next year we'll be giving thanks for even more states taking up the mantle.
