For those of you who have been fans of High Times ever since we launched our counterculture efforts in 1974, the past decade has been one of near-constant celebration. It was way back in 1996 that California became the first state in America to allow doctors to recommend cannabis for medicinal treatments, and since then, we’ve never stopped fighting to end this ridiculous prohibition and allow adults the right to use marijuana in a safe, responsible manner.
Fast-forward 10 years from that fateful day, and we now have eight states and Washington, D.C., that allow adult-use recreational marijuana while an amazing 28 states have approved medical marijuana programs. There has never been a better time in history to support and celebrate the ongoing marijuana reform efforts in the United States, and the High Times store has all the gear you’ll need to capitalize on your newfound freedoms.
Cannabis Culture Just Keeps Bringing In The Victories
When the people make up their minds that it’s time to change, there’s nothing anyone can do to stand in the way. With the historical passage of recreational legalization in 2012, the floodgates of public opinion on cannabis opened fully for the first time. And we’ve never looked back.
“In October 2015, Gallup reported that 58 percent of Americans favored the legalization of marijuana — tying 2013 for the highest acceptance rate recorded in the 46 years that the international pollster has conducted marijuana surveys. That acceptance rate, which was 12 percent in 1969 and a little more than 30 percent in 2000, accelerated after Colorado and Washington voted in 2012 to legalize marijuana for adult use,” reported The Cannabist.
So now that weed enthusiasts can finally come out of our hotboxed closets, it’s time to gear up for a time of unprecedented freedom to relax and medicate with the world’s greatest plant! Good thing the High Times store has all of the educational materials and stylish gear you’ll need.
