The last decade was huge for the cannabis reform movement. Many people have come out of the cannabis closet showing support for legislation, the economy, criminal justice and the right to be truly free Americans. Here is a brief history of the last decade’s cannabis legalization and how far we have come summed up in gifs.
1. Legalization Started With Washington & Colorado
Damn straight Franco, we’ve earned this.
2. Which Delighted the Marijuana Community
Where were you when Washington and Colorado Legalized?
3. Soon, The Country Began Taking Notice
“Why don’t we handle the drugs like we handle alcohol? Alcohol is a deadly drug. What about — the real deadly drugs are the prescription drugs. They kill a lot more people than the illegal drugs.” – Ron Paul (R-TX)
4. Despite Reform, the Stigma Continued
5. While The Feds Resisted Change
We know this is a longshot for the DEA, but if you could start by not shooting our dogs and raiding my grandma’s house, that would be great!
6. But The World Is Learning Cannabis is Different
Dave isn’t coming back till weed is legalized federally, so get on it!
7. It Makes People Happy
Can’t deny that.
8. It Makes People Dance
“Everything is better with a bag of weed.”
9. But For Grandma, It’s Making Her Feel Better
Someone get grandma a fat sack of Chronic. Her hip is acting up again!
10. So Let’s Continue Legalization and…
…Because the future is here.
