The biggest surprise will be how nothing changes. Everyone who wanted to smoke pot has been smoking it all along. Anyone not interested still won’t be interested.

A year from now it will be a nothingburger.

Yep.

There might be some increase in businesses that cater to the demographic that are now out in the open, but the number of people who light up probably won’t increase much.

There were drunks and alcoholics before Prohibition, there were drunks and alcoholics during Prohibition... and there were drunks and alcoholics after Prohibition.

Oh dear ... much will change. At the least we’re going to have the Justice Department suing the State of Washington to enforce Federal Laws. Kind of a reverse Arizona deal with immigration where the Justice Department sues to stop Arizona from trying to enforce Federal Law. It should be comical.

And yea, people are going to try it. I think the more people that get stoned the better our government will get as people start seeing through the bull crap. Grandma and Grandpa switching from the 24 hours news channel to the food network.

Agreed...but a watershed has been reached. Fifty years from now, the civil-liberties crowd will celebrate it as historically decisive as the repeal of the Corn Laws in 1840s UK.
