I was really shocked that BOTH of these laws passed. I'm very glad they did too. Anyone else live in WA have any opinions?

A good picture to celebrate this glorious day


And a good joke, here goes:

the bible says when two men lay together they ought to be stoned,
Well....Now that is possible to do! Spark up WA

Don't live there, but congrats to them I guess. Don't know why, but I thought marijuana was already legal there.

It was medically legal; now it's recreationally legal. You will not be punished for having or selling pot. You can buy weed from a gas station there, I heard.

In a gas station eh? A part of me has concerns about that.

Does this mean you can drive under the influence of it too? Since you can purchase it at gas stations?

You should tell us what the laws are so we don't need to spend time searching for things we don't care about -- there is an edit button. I imagine one or both of the laws involve pot, but I don't live there and I don't care much for it. (I like pot, but I dislike stoners. I guess the fact that Ms. Jane has been with those losers just gets to me. I can be a petty human being sometimes.)

Only answering this because I think this is a serious question...Despite my personal opinion, no you can not drive under the influence of marijuana.

i can tell you both laws (since i watch the FOX News Channel, like all day. and i live in AZ, btw) the one is about legalizing marijuana and the other is about being able to marry if you're gay/lesbian. i can guarantee that people aren't going to like my next statement (but i don't really care), but i'm against both of them.

In reference to the portion in red: Well, there's a big part of your problem...

Then again, 26 states (including AZ) allow first cousins to marry. And while I certainly wouldn't want to marry one of my cousins, I am not going to try to make it illegal for those who do.

I'm a straight man, I support LGBT causes in my state, and I'm glad gay marriage passed there. Why? Because purely religious views and morals should not be made law in a multicultural, multireligious society. We don't live in a theocracy, and anyone who thinks we should live in one should read up on the Establishment Clause, and find somewhere else to live if it's so unpalatable to them.

I thought those laws were past a while ago? Perhaps I'm mistaken.
Anyway, it's still good to hear, though as people have said you should edit your post so those unaware are in the loop.

I'm a Republican who is fiscally conservative but socially liberal leaning. And I voted yes on both of these issues.

I live in a little border town, and we got nothing but crime coming down to us from Vancouver due to the illegal status of marijuana. I knew way too many drug dealers and drug mules in high school who worked for Canadians, and way too many kids I knew took a lot of bad turns because of that. A little northwest fishing town shouldn't have high school kids running around with guns thinking that they're drug kingpins.

It's also a great source of revenue and will free up the attention of police forces to do a better job at handling more important things.

Interestingly enough, unlike the many thousands of hipster pot heads in our state, I actually don't even intend to take advantage of this. I'm not a big fan of the stuff.

As far as gay marriage is concerned, I really don't care very much either way. I'm not gay, and I don't know many gay people so I'm pretty unaffected. I do find the opponents far more annoying than the proponents though, so there ya go

It would still be illegal to smoke it out in public.
