Colorado voters have approved a referendum that supports the legalization of Marijuana on a recreational basis.
Amendment 64 in Colorado will amend the state constitution to legalize and regulate the production, possession, and distribution of Marijuana for persons age 21 and older.
“The voters have spoken and we have to respect their will,” Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper said in a written statement released by his office. “This will be a complicated process, but we intend to follow through. That said, federal law still says Marijuana is an illegal drug so don’t break out the Cheetos or gold fish too quickly.”
Although Colorado “legalized it,” it will be several months, perhaps as long as a year, before Colorado adults 21-and-over can enjoy the legal sale of marijuana.
