Grass is greener now in Colorado and Washington

DENVER, CO – Colorado named for the color red in Spanish. And red was clearly in the “ayes” of voters in the Rocky Mountain State on Election Day, when they passed a bill that legalized pot.

The mile high city of Denver was all abuzz at the polls when recreational marijuana supporters smoked their opponents. 53% of the voters where pro the pot bill; while 47% wanted to keep the bud banned.

Colorado wasn’t the only state on a Rocky Mountain high, equally granola Washington State shared in the euphoria by also passing a similar bill. The joint states became the first in the U.S. to legalize the possession and sale of marijuana for recreational use.

Up to an ounce of pot would be legal for anybody 21 or older but cannabis will still be considered a controlled substance under federal law.

With Colorado and Washington passing the marijuana bill, will this mean a population shift over to these higher elevation states? The grass might not always be greener on the other side, but at least now it’s legal.
