The end of Hemp prohibition has begun
On Nov 6th 2012, the people of Washington state and Colorado state voted to re-legalize cannabis ( marijuana ) for all adults over 21 years of age. The details vary in each state, and while neither law is yet the most ideal or perfect, these are victories of astounding magnitude. Cannabis has been criminalized in USA for close to 80 years (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legal_history_of_cannabis_in_the_United_States ) 1937 was the 1st arrest of a citizen for possession of cannabis to be precise. The decades since then people have fought to repeal the prohibition against cannabis, many of them believing it was unjustly criminalized in the 1st place.
The victories in these two state give real hope and demonstrate that the beginning of the end of prohibition against cannabis has arrived, the tide is growing & expanding, state by state and within a few years this country, and ideally the world will finally end the war on cannabis and get back to rediscovering the benefits of the hemp, particularly the industrial uses of hemp.
Thank you voters, thank you volunteers, thank you supporters.
