Legalization of Marijuana took a step in the right direction as voters in Colorado and Washington have become the first states to legalize and regulate marijuana for recreational use. A huge victory for drug law reform advocates, and a massive win for everyone in general. The positive reaction on Twitter came from a diverse set of people, a good sign that cannabis is outgrowing the shackles of misinformation and propaganda.
