Washington's First Marijuana Legalization Commercial
The first television ad in support of I-502 which would legalize, tax and regulate marijuana in the state for adults over the age of 21, has just come out in Washington State. The ad is from New Approach Washington, the campaign behind the initiative.
The woman in the ad is personally against marijuana, but lists several reasons why it makes more sense to regulate and control the cannabis market. The ad is presumably aimed at women, who, according to polls, favor legalization less than men.
In addition to Washington, Oregon and Colorado also have marijuana legalization initiatives on their ballots. Which means it’s possible for legalization to be law in three states by next year.
How the federal government would react to that is anyone’s guess; this would also depend on who wins the Presidential election. President Obama might theoretically be willing to back off marijuana in a second term.
At least one state has to pass legalization to keep any kind of momentum in the movement. All three passing it would be nothing less than a huge slap in the face of the federal government.
Most importantly, adults in these states have a chance at a much greater measure of freedom.
