During tonight’s U.S. election, history was made. Voters in Colorado (53% yes, 47% no) and Washington State (55% yes 45% no) voted to legalize marijuana, thus ending the longstanding (and senseless) prohibition on cannabis. Now, not only will marijuana be harder for youths to obtain in these states, it will also generate tax revenues for things such as education rather than help fund dangerous street gangs and drug cartels.
I plan to continue updating Vaporblog with new guides and reviews in the coming months, in the hopes that more people will become aware of the benefits of vaporization over smoking. I also look forward to more states following Colorado and Washington’s initiative, enacting more sane legislation to end prohibition.
