I'm sticking with my prediction of 65 - 35

Wow . . . You're good !

You were predicting the race between Cuomo and Nixon in NY primaries, right.

Many of the "old rich white guys of today"  are the   "young stoners of yesterday".

And I've said for years that eventually exactly what you just said.  I thought though because of the age of most voters that it would take another full to half generation before this would pass in any state.

Most old stoners know it's relatively harmless if under control, unlike alcohol, nor do they believe any crazy high statistic thrown out there that it is a ladder drug.  There will always be abusers.....Pot, Booze, Opiods but if I were an abuser I would pick pot over any of the others. 

GO POT!

I knew stoners in high school who were complete idiots and are still complete idiots today. I also knew stoners that were straight A students and they are still smart and successful today.
There probably a very small percentage of the American adult population that can say they never smoked pot. As the old white republican conservatives die off that percentage continues to decline.

Yup, same here Mav.

Something else noteworthy.....all the kids who had problems with the booze are now dead, yet when I go back to my old stomping grounds I see the old stoners are still around.

More Older Americans Are Turning To Marijuana
« Reply #19 on: September 15, 2018, 08:51:39 AM »

I talk to older veterans all the time that are finally discovering the benefits of marijuana over other more traditional pain management. 

I've often heard it was the pharmaceutical companies that got marijuana banned decades ago and that they're still the ain funding source behind repealing the ban.  As in so many issues in politics just "follow the money" and you'll soon figure out what is happening and if something will benefit the people or big business.
