Although 2012 wasn’t the most victorious year for marijuana, there are already some promising signs for possible legislative victory in 2013.
The Federal government isn’t too fond of the idea…but several marijuana reform bills have already been introduced in the state legislatures. Whether they stand a decent chance or not, they will at least significantly advance the issue of reform.
With Colorado and Washington State moving fast towards full legalization, we can only expect other states and politicians to follow suit.
Without further ado, here are eight potential marijuana reforms in 2013 that might just happen!
Nelson Mandela was an incredible symbol of international human rights who helped end South Africa’s Apartheid era, was the first black president of the country, and supported humanitarian efforts all over the world.

In case you missed it, Rick Santorum mourned the passing of Nelson Mandela by comparing Obamacare to apartheid. Of course something so asinine elicited a copious amount of backlash.

Former South African President and civil rights icon Nelson Mandela died last night at the age of 95.

Confusion is an unavoidable aspect of all Millennials lives. Whether it be academia, work or a social life, Gen-Yers are forced to succumb to bewilderment.
