As an election issue competing against the immediacy of a global pandemic, an economic crisis, and a renegade in the White House, the legalization of marijuana was always likely to be something of a slow burn.
Yet as it turned out, voters were more enthused about that than almost any other issue in states where drugs were on the ballot. They delivered a unanimous mandate for recreational marijuana use in Arizona, Montana, New Jersey and South Dakota, and approved its use for medicinal purposes in Mississippi and South Dakota.
With only 15 states still outlawing marijuana in any form, some experts believe the campaign to advance formal policy and promote acceptance…has reached a tipping point.
Not a bad sign when even Trump’s true believers are voting for legal weed. Even after years of crap lies about the “dangers” lurking.
