Skift Take

Fresh off a victory and with a third term not possible, Obama may finally bring some sense to U.S. drug policies. If so, Colorado and Washington may be leading the vanguard among the states.

Fresh on the heels of Amsterdam rethinking its marijuana policies for visitors, two states passed laws on Nov. 6 allowing recreational use of pot. The victory for the 4:20 contingent isn’t sealed, as U.S. federal laws do not allow what voters in Colorado and Washington state just voted for. Still, that’s not stopping social media users proclaiming their support for vacations — permanent or temporary — out west.
