    Montana voters have approved a marijuana legalization initiative, according to a projection by NBC News. A separate measure concerning age limits for the regulated cannabis market has yet to be formally called, but also holds a sizable lead.

    The main statutory reform measure will establish a legal system of marijuana production and sales for adults in the state, while the separate constitutional amendment would stipulate that only those 21 and older can participate in the market.

    “This result illustrates that support for adult-use marijuana legalization extends across geographic and demographic lines,” NORML Executive Director Erik Altieri said. “Marijuana legalization is not exclusively a ‘blue’ state issue, but an issue that is supported by a majority of all Americans—regardless of party politics.”

    Polling ahead of the election indicated the reform was on its way to passage, with 54 percent of likely voters saying in a survey released last month that they planned to support legal cannabis on the ballot. That said, a separate October poll showed the measure leading, but without outright majority support. That survey found that Montana voters support marijuana legalization, 49 percent to 39 percent.

    The system wants everybody stoned.

    It is the only way you will tolerate what's coming next.

    why I should worship the state (who apparently is the only party that can possess guns without question).
    The state's only purpose is to kill and control. Why do you worship it? - Sola_Fide

    At which point will Americans realize that creating an unaccountable institution that is able to pass its liability on to tax-payers is immoral and attracts sociopaths?

    The system has been fighting legalization for the last 50 years, even for only sick people being able to use it. I don't buy into that theory at all.

    On the one hand, there's no question the government would rather have free reign over a bunch of drug-addled lobotomites who only care about Saturday morning cartoons and are just capable of doing menial jobs. On the other hand, big pharma would have every incentive to lobby against alternatives to Wellbutrin and Prozac. It's difficult to guess how much either motive influences what's going on behind the scenes.

    So did Arizona, finally. As for being stoned for what comes next: Might not be a bad idea.

    I do believe that still, every instance of legalization that has occurred has been due to a ballot proposition, so that leads me to believe that the governmental apparatus doesn't care much for doing so.
