Your Colorados. Your Washingtons. But now, a real, legitimate East Coast city is allowing pot smokers to smoke in peace. From the Huffington Post:
Portland, Maine, voters on Tuesday approved legalizing recreational marijuana for residents 21 and older. The measure, Question 1, passed with about 70 percent of the vote, making Portland the first East Coast city to legalize recreational pot
Seventy percent is pretty astounding. This also coincides with Brooklyn electing Ken Thompson as District Attorney, who said he would not prosecute people for having under a half-ounce of weed. The question now, though, is what is going to happen to America? Will we all be too stoned to solve our fiscal issues? Will our hard-working spirit be destroyed by a fog of marijuana smoke? The fight for the soul of America is now underway.
