Today I lost a bet with myself

I’ve had a pool going for a couple of years now as to whether Georgia would first recognize gay marriage (aka¬†“marriage”) or legalize cannabis.

With the Supreme Court likely to rule soon in favor of enforcing the former, I’m intrigued that a bill just passed to also begin the process of making way for the latter.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal on Friday said he would sign into law a bill that would make the Peach State the 24th state to legalize medical marijuana, continuing the rapid expansion of cannabis into the Deep South and underscoring a dramatic shift in pot politics for social conservatives in the US.

I was the only participant in my pool, so financially it’s kind of a wash. But historically? 2015 is¬†shaping up to be a pretty interesting year.
