Colorado IS a surprise though. Their early polling was suggesting that it would not pass there.
Oregon had a similar initiative on their ballot but it didn't pass. But expect them to model their next initiative after Colorado and Washington and THEN it will pass there too. Followed by California, and others.
Now the big question is whether the feds are going to come after both states. I think they will... they'll do it financially. They'll cut Federal funds for highways and other infrastructure. Just watch, but they'll have to do it quick or too many other states will jump on board and then the Feds won't be able to do too much.
While I will never purchase and partake, I am glad that Washington was the first with Colorado. Its the right thing to do here. Other states can make their own decisions.
Decided last night to finally get a passport and visit America after hearing this wonderful news.
