So, everyone has heard of recreational marijuana use becoming newly legal in Colorado and Washington state. While you may assume everyone is overwhelmed with joy, sometimes it is not that cut and dry. There are actually a lot of issues surrounding the recreational marijuana legalization. Should it be legal for all, or just residents? Will the state defend someone whose plants are stolen or destroyed during a crime? Will every area in the states be on board with recreational legalization? To answer these questions briefly, no one knows yet. Residency requirements are looking to be a split issue already. Colorado get a lot of tourism every year but some groups don’t want to see a spike in “delinquent pot head tourists.” There are actually already a list of communities that are working to ban retail marijuana operations, growing in city or county limits, and even marijuana testing facilities. There always has to be a party pooper in the mix and until the states works out all these little kinks in the system, we may not see a true, all encompassing, recreational legalization. These states are the pioneers of these new policies, and if too much negative comes of these new amendments, we may not see other states jumping on board very quickly.
