Prediction #1: Oregon Legalizes Marijuana Creating the First ‘Pot Territory’ or ‘Region’
We predict that Oregon will pass Measure 91 on Tuesday, November 4, giving the nation its’ first ‘pot territory’ or ‘region.’ Which means, Washington and Oregon – two states of the great Northwest – would be the first recreational marijuana industries sharing the same border.
Oregon had a chance to make history along with us a couple of years ago and they flat out blew it. Let’s not sugar coat it. They blew it. But, instead of sitting back and sulking in their defeat, like a true prizefighter they got themselves together and are ready for the rematch. That’s a lot more than other states can say. Look at California, they are still trying to figure it out since their legalized marijuana defeat many years ago.
Prediction #2: Washington D.C. Will Legalize Marijuana…Yawn
We know, this one is barely a prediction as Washington D.C. has been looking to punch its’ ticket into legal cannabis land for several weeks now. In fact, polls indicate somewhat of a landslide victory for the district. If D.C. does legalize marijuana by a margin pre-polling numbers indicate, this could very well be the largest margin of victory to date for legalization of recreational marijuana. Keep in mind, while marijuana would be legal for adults and they would be allowed to grow their own plants, their would be no where to purchase it.
Prediction #3: Alaska Legalizes Marijuana, Wait… Alaska Doesn’t Legalize Marijuana… Doh! It’s Too Close to Call!
Will Alaska’s Ballot Measure 2 be the one hiccup during this round of marijuana legalization initiatives? We think so. Pre-election polling results have this measure all over the place and to solve this confusion, we are going to predict that this measure will be too close to call when polls close Tuesday. And this hurts, because, a straight up legalization of marijuana in Alaska would be icing on the cake, especially if Oregon and Washington D.C. pass their initiatives. Let’s hope we are wrong.
