A Big Win For Marijuana 2016

Medical Marijuana and Proposition 64

A Big Win For Marijuana 2016

Everyone may be upset with how the presidency turned out, but this is could be a turning point for Marijuana in America. You may think your vote did not count, but to these propositions/measures. I believe that medical marijuana is important for certain people in small dosing, but potheads should not be a thing. People should not being taking advantage of marijuana as they do. Therefore I am happy we are turning a corner, however it should still be illegal to a point. This is what you need to know the election and how we changed marijuana.

Medical Marijuana passed: Florida, North Dakota and Arkansas. Montana lessoned restrictions on medical marijuana laws.

This means that people with health problem that get approved by a doctor can have assess to marijuana. Think about how this can help people with seizures like epilepsy calm down. Also with this law being passed we can do more and more researched on what diseases marijuana can treat. The more states that pass medical marijuana, the more it will just become a common thing.

Proposition 64: California, Nevada, Maine, and Massachusetts

This is by far the biggest win for marijuana in this election. Proposition 64 is the adult use of marijuana act. It states that anyone 21 and older can legally use, sell and consumption of recreational weed. This is huge especially for California because is the most populous state in America. With this being passed it allows non-medical marijuana to be sold by state licensed businesses and they make so much money off this. Maybe one day marijuana will be the new alcohol and will be on ever ballet.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
