Coloradans and Washingtonians voted to legalize marijuana. For
those fed up with marijuana prohibition, the moment was an
important victory and, perhaps, an indicator that marijuana
prohibition nationally is coming to an end. For reformers in
Colorado and Washington, however, the work is just beginning.
Implementating the new laws will not be easy, and there are lots of
big questions that will need to be answered.
Will adult tourists visiting Colorado and Washington be allowed
to buy pot? Will adults be allowed to smoke pot in coffee shops or
private clubs? Will adults who legaliy smoke pot be eligible for
federal grants? How will the federal government respond?
In February, Reason TV’s Paul Feine, David Bienenstock, Harris
Kenny and some friends of Reason gathered in Reason’s LA studio to
learn more about the challenge of implementing the new pot laws.
David Bienenstock is an editor at High Times magazine and the
author of the recently published
Legalized It!: Inside Colorado and Washington State’s Historic
Votes to End Marijuana Prohibition. Harris Kenny is a
Reason Foundation policy analyst and a member of Colorado’s
Amendment 64 implementation task force.
