"Colorado roadway fatalities are down 25 percent this year from last year, and also down from the 13-year average, Washington Post reports, in another damning debunking of law enforcement officials ‘drugged driving’ epidemic."
"The Impact Of Smoking Marijuana Regularly On Your Lungs, According To Science"
"“Lifetime marijuana use up to 20 joint-years is not associated with adverse changes in spirometric (exhalation strength) measures of lung health,” the study, featured in the medical journal Annals of the American Thoracic Society, concluded...“The distinction the Emory University study makes is not new,” Allen St. Pierre, executive director of the National Organization to Reform Marijuana Laws, told ThinkProgress. “It’s ripe with citations from Donald Tashkin who has spent more than 40 years trying to answer the question of what happens to people when they smoke tobacco and marijuana. This new study took things further; today these products aren’t being smoked [in a way] that the product is carbonized and there’s ash."

Colorado: 55% Of Voters Still Support Marijuana Legalization
Marijuana opponents like Kevin Sabet were very certain that Colorado voters would regret voting for marijuana legalization in 2012. Three years later, there is no buyer’s remorse in Colorado. In fact, the same percentage of voters that approved marijuana legalization in Colorado on Election Day 2012 stated that they still support it according to a poll recently released by Quinnipiac University. Per 9News:
Fifty-five percent of Colorado voters say they support the voter-passed law that legalized marijuana in the state, while 41 percent are opposed. And 53 percent said they believe that legalizing marijuana has been good for the state.
There’s a large gender gap when it comes to marijuana approval rates. Men are higher in the votes while woman are divided on the issue. Forty-five percent are saying it’s a good thing, and 47 percent believe marijuana is negatively affecting the state.
55.32% of Colorado voters voted ‘yes’ on Election Day 2012 for Amendment 64. I don’t expect Kevin Sabet to change his tune after the release of these poll results. However, I do expect him to look even dumber than usual if/when he continues to act like marijuana legalization in Colorado hasn’t worked. Colorado’s citizens have spoken, again, and they have expressed that they like their decision to legalize marijuana. I expect similar results in every other state that follows in Colorado’s footsteps.
