Critical Mass: On Tuesday, 3 More States Legalized Weed for Recreational and Medical Use

Critical Mass: On Tuesday, 3 More States Legalized Weed for Recreational and Medical Use By Matt Agorist – The Free Thought Project

Three more states told the federal government they will no longer obey their tyrannical marijuana laws and legalized the plant in some form, bringing the total of legal states to 32.

On Tuesday, while most Americans were casting votes for their favorite politicians and more laws, citizens in three states went to the polls and voted to remove laws. Michigan, Utah, and Missouri voters said enough is enough and voted to legalize marijuana in some form.

Michigan became the 10th state in the union to completely legalize pot for recreational purposes—promising to no longer kidnap and cage people for a plant. Utah and Missouri both voted to legalize this beneficial plant for medical purposes.

Utah and Missouri became the 31st and 32nd states in the country to legalize the plant shrinking the number of states who will still lock you in a cage for self medicating with a plant to just 18.

“This is yet another historic election for the movement to end marijuana prohibition,“ said Steve Hawkins, executive director of the Marijuana Policy Project, which played a leading role in organizing the Michigan initiative, according to HuffPo. “Voters have once again sent a message loud and clear that it is time to legalize and regulate marijuana. The victory in Michigan highlights just how widespread support is for marijuana policy reform. This issue does not only enjoy strong support on the coasts but also in the Midwest and all throughout the country.”

Michigan set one of the most revolutionary legalization standards in the country by refusing to lock people in a cage for using marijuana as long as they are 21 and older and then going further and allowing Michigan residents to not only buy and sell marijuana, but they can grow it in their own homes. Residents can now grow up to 12 plants for personal use.

The state also bucked the feds and brought themselves out of the prohibition stone age by legalizing the cultivation of industrial hemp which can be used to make anything from building materials to fuel to food.

What these legalization moves represent is the will of the people who no longer wish to see their fellow citizens kidnapped, caged, or even killed over the use and possession of this plant. The 18 states left are now showing their resistance to the will of the people by remaining in the dark ages of prohibition.

As TFTP reported earlier this year, instead of bowing down to the federal government, states across the country have started to fight back against hemp prohibition too. Farmers in 17 states—California, Colorado, Indiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nevada, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia and Wyoming—have obtained state licenses to produce industrial hemp for commercial purposes.

It is important to remind our readers that all of these legalization measures are a direct violation of federal law, showing that disobedience to immoral legislation is what fosters change not waiting around for our masters in the federal government to “allow” us to do it.
