Washington D.C. has Legalized Recreational Cannabis!

dc legalizedVoters in Washington, D.C., have approved the legal use of marijuana for recreational purposes. Supporters of the D.C. marijuana measure had a 65-29.5 percent lead as of 9:09 p.m. ET, with 20,727 voting in favor.

The D.C. case could create friction between the city’s leaders and Congress — particularly if, as many expect, Republicans take control of both chambers. The District’s Initiative 71 includes provisions that allow residents to grow six or fewer marijuana plants in their homes and possess up to 2 ounces of the drug for their own use.

Uruguay Becomes First Country to Legalize Marijuana!

URUGUAY

Something truly historic just happened, and I’m very excited to share the news with you: Uruguay’s national legislature just voted to make their country the first in the world to legalize marijuana!

Since prohibition first reared its ugly head a century ago, no nation has ever before moved to re-legalize marijuana and bring the trade aboveground and out of the hands of drug cartels and gangs that control the illegal market.

As you know, the states of Colorado and Washington voted last year to become the first jurisdictions on the planet to legalize marijuana. Now an entire country is doing so. Legal sales of marijuana to adults in Colorado and Washington will begin in early 2014, and once Uruguayan President Jose Mujica — a vocal legalization supporter — signs the new bill into law, his government will move forward with plans to start selling marijuana to its own citizens.

Next year, several additional U.S. states are likely to vote on legalization, and even more will follow in 2016. A recent Gallup poll just found that 58% of all Americans want to end marijuana prohibition.
