I thought about moving to the West Coast for 2 years.
After recreational marijuana was legalized, I wanted to move so I could take advantage of the lifestyle.
I was already using recreational marijuana frequently, but I was worried that I would get into trouble at some point or another. When recreational marijuana hit the ballot in this state, I hoped and prayed that it would go through. On the day of the election, I tried to get as many people out there to vote as possible. My friends and I went to several different outdoor areas to get people to vote. I didn’t know if the ballot was going to pass. I watched the results of the election all day. When the reports were done, the recreational marijuana law passed with a total of 73% voter approval. That was higher than it needed to be. It was a clear indication that people in this state are ready and willing to buy recreational marijuana products. 4 months after the law passed, some changes finally started to come about. Some of the first changes included changing the medical marijuana dispensaries to recreational marijuana dispensaries as well. A lot of problems had to be addressed before it was possible for people to buy recreational marijuana supplies in the store. Now that the laws are passed and I can buy recreational marijuana anytime that I want, I am glad that I did not move to the West coast. I would have only gone there for marijuana and I don’t think I would have been very happy to live thousands of miles away from my family just so I can smoke weed without worrying about the police.
