The 2016 Election Cycle saw some good and some bad in the Legalization area. While most states did end up legalizing against good authority, not all votes were bad. The votes on the City and County level showed that one state may not be as accepting to legalization as some may think.
6 states legalized some form of Marijuana use yesterday, whether it be recreational or medical. Those fighting the initiatives in all of these states fought the good fight, but the propaganda won out. We can only do so much to educate voters on the dangers of legalization and then we have to leave it in their hands to make the right choice. Unfortunately voters in 6 states voted wrong. One of those states -- California -- may prove to be the turning point of this legalization push. The legalizers think that this is a good thing, but those of us paying attention know that it is not. All of the problems we've been seeing in states like Colorado, Oregon and Washington will be exponentially worse in California. Legalizers take California as a good win, but with the population of California being seven times that of Colorado we expect the problems like DUII and Traffic fatalities to be 7 times worse also.
