A brave pioneer in the cannabis legalization movement, Colorado passed Amendment 64 on November 6, 2012, becoming the first state in the USA to officially allow the personal, recreational use of cannabis and other products containing THC, for adults 21+, in similar fashion to the regulation of alcohol.
The movement was spearheaded by both religious and spiritual leaders, urging people to help eliminate wasteful & ineffective spending, allowing law enforcement to commit more resources to
violent crimes and decreasing pressure on an overburdened court and criminal justice system.
In the years since the law took effect, there have been a few bumps on the road for citizens and lawmakers, but the Colorado Department of Public Safety report shows the legalization effort clearly achieved the stated goals. Over a 3-year average, marijuana-related judicial proceedings have decreased 47%, and valuable resources have been shifted to educating on the safe use of cannabis and other intoxicants.
"Throughout my career in public policy and in public office, I have fought to reform or eliminate wasteful and ineffective government programs. There is no government program or policy I can think of that has failed in such a unique way as marijuana prohibition."
