<10 down, 40 to go!; 67 sec.>
No matter where you come down on the election: from Blue Wave to Purple Puddle, cannabis did well at the polls. Took 3 out of 4.
Green Wave at the ballot box:
<Green Wave: 19 sec.>
- Michigan legalized the Seven Leaf
- Utah medical marijuana
- Missouri medical marijuana
- 10 legal + DC + all of Canada
- 33 states medical marijuana

Had a great conversation with my window installer this summer. He was a young Mormon man with a family. We got to talking based on my Reggae/cannabis menagerie of posters up in the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives.
He has excruciating pain in his back. None of the official pain meds were tolerable: gave him terrible constipation and nightmares. His wife was offered pharmaceutical anti-nausea medication while pregnant. Later the drug was found to cause birth defects.
Both of them relied on cannabis for pain and nausea relief. Not CBD. Cannabis. Smoked not eaten. My Dad uses it for neuropathy and carpal tunnel in Arizona. It’s a medicine. Congrats to Utahans for exercising their free agency.
So what will 2020 bring?
I’m predicting these states go for it:
- New Jersey
- Montana (my homeland!)
- New Mexico
- Arizona (second try)
- Hawaii? (they should be no brainer)
10 down, 40 to go! Maybe Pres. 45 will legalize it nationally if he wants to get re-elected?
