California & Massachusetts Just Legalized Recreational Marijuana -- Florida Approves Medical



Source - The Mind Unleashed

by Lance Schuttler, November 9th 2016

In a major win for cannabis proponents, the state of California has just voted to legalize recreational marijuana.

The Proposition 64 was approved by California voters on Tuesday evening, which now makes California the biggest state for legalizing the recreational use of marijuana.



As it is often said, “As California goes, so goes the nation.” This will certainly bring a massive push from the rest of the nation to legalize marijuana for recreational use.

With the proposition now passed, people living in California who are 21 or older can now legally possess, transport and buy up to an ounce of marijuana as well as allowing up to 6 plants to be grown by an individual.



Nate Bradley, executive director of the California Cannabis Industry Association is happy with the results:

“We are very excited that citizens of California voted to end the failed policy of marijuana prohibition. Proposition 64 will allow California to take its rightful place as the center of cannabis innovation, research and development.”

Proposition 64 was opposed by most major law enforcement groups, including the California Assn. of Highway Patrolmen, the Peace Officers Research Assn. of California and the California Police Chiefs Assn.

Interestingly and perhaps somewhat controversially, the initiative to vote in favor of the proposition was supported and funded by Facebook’s President Sean Park as well as billionaire George Soros. They raised nearly $16 million which is about 10 times the amount the opposition campaign raised.

Massachusetts has also joins California in passing recreational marijuana with Florida approving medical marijuana.

As of this writing, the vote for recreational marijuana is being approved in Maine, approved in Nevada and is being opposed in Arizona. Votes are also pending for medical marijuana in North Dakota, Arkansas and Montana.

We could very well wake up in the morning with 4 new states approving recreational marijuana and at least 1 state (Florida) approving medical marijuana.

With California and Massachusetts passing the legalization of recreational marijuana, they now join Colorado, Alaska, Washington and Oregon.

Regardless of the presidential election outcome, we are surely to wake up to a different and more green friendly world tomorrow. Spread the good news!

Question -- What is the goal of this website? Why do we share different sources of information that sometimes conflicts or might even be considered disinformation? 
Answer -- The primary goal of Stillness in the Storm is to help all people become better truth-seekers in a real-time boots-on-the-ground fashion. This is for the purpose of learning to think critically, discovering the truth from within—not just believing things blindly because it came from an "authority" or credible source. Instead of telling you what the truth is, we share information from many sources so that you can discern it for yourself. We focus on teaching you the tools to become your own authority on the truth, gaining self-mastery, sovereignty, and freedom in the process. We want each of you to become your own leaders and masters of personal discernment, and as such, all information should be vetted, analyzed and discerned at a personal level. We also encourage you to discuss your thoughts in the comments section of this site to engage in a group discernment process.
