Banksters, gangsters, and guns: The battle for legalized marijuana

See also

The passage of Amendment 64 in Colorado led to a voice of the people that needed answers, and the answers were given through tireless efforts to put a law in place the legalized marijuana. This triumphant voice became a murmur of perseverance that silently fell onto the laps of lawmakers. It is without a doubt that Amendment 64 is in place, but making it work and making it work by January 1st became a real issue for the institutions that took on this challenge.

Still, props will have to be given to these individuals that were able to make this pipe-dream of legalized marijuana a reality. In the timeframe that was given for these people to create a legalized market, Colorado and Washington have stepped up against bankers, allowed for the federal government to still operate freely against organized crimes, and have still staunchly opposed the trafficking of illicit materials. Without a doubt, these individuals should be rewarded greatly for their hard work, but will it all go up in smoke?
