180px-Seal_of_Colorado.svgMason Tvert of the Marijuana Policy Project made an appearance on a Denver political news program to discuss the Colorado legislature’s adoption of the first bills in history to establish a regulated recreational marijuana market for adults.

The three measures in question were adopted in accordance with Amendment 64, the recreational marijuana ballot initiative that was approved by voters in November 2012.

To recapitulate, two of the bills establish the framework for regulations governing the retailing of marijuana, cultivation, and product manufacturing. The third bill sanctions taxes on wholesale and retailing of marijuana, which must also be appropriated by Colorado voters.

As an infant, Erik was accidently abandoned by his parents at Hempfest after they overindulged on the local offerings. Unfortunately for him, a band of stoner Gypsies informally adopted him and raised him as one of their own until he one day realized his clothes were abnormally different than everyone around him. Which was weird, considering he came to this conclusion while attending another Hempfest in hopes of finding his birth parents. After the shocking realization that he was indeed not a professional hobo with weird, gastly, outlandish clothing, he fled his Gypsie family and took refuge in the hills of the Emerald Triangle. It was in those very hills where Erik discovered his true purpose in life: cultivating marijuana! He spent years living in the hills of the Triangle mastering the craft of popping great crops of delicious sticky icky before deciding to come down from the mountain and rejoin civilization. Once Erik reacclimated himself to society, he acquired a laptop, setup his home garden, purchased a bong and began blogging marijuana-related news stories in hopes of spreading the truth about the plant and its medicinal properties. Erik is so pro-marijuana that if cut, he bleeds weed. Wanna hit? Then load up that bong and toke along!
