With 2011 almost history, it’s time to look forward to 2012. What does 2012 have in store for marijuana? The 2012 Election will likely be the biggest story in the marijuana world, however, there is more to look forward to. There will likely be scientific breakthroughs as the private sector and international community continue to research marijuana while the United States government continues to deny marijuana’s medical qualities.
One thing that I’m looking forward to is innovations in marijuana growing technologies and techniques. It’s no secret that there are more people growing marijuana than ever before in the United States, especially in the medical marijuana states. New growers equals new ideas and new innovations. Most of the 2012 inventions that will help marijuana growers will no doubt come from marijuana growers themselves. I know several of my marijuana growing friends are working on inventions, and with so many marijuana growers out there looking to get an edge in 2012, there will be plenty of rewards to be reaped.
Who knows what else will happen in the marijuana world in 2012. One thing that is virtually guaranteed is marijuana will get more attention in the 2012 Election than any other political year before. The list of state’s looking to reform their marijuana laws in 2012 seems to be constantly growing. From Washington State to Florida people are gathering signatures to get medical and recreational marijuana legalization to come to their states. Governors are now starting to demand that marijuana get a sensible review to see if it should be rescheduled. How many more governors will jump on board in 2012? Only time will tell I suppose.
What does marijuana look like outside of the United States in 2012? Will Canada see a conservative backlash against marijuana policy in 2012, because it looks like there’s going to be a lingering showdown. Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos and former Mexican President Vicente Fox are calling for legalization in Latin and South America. The city of Copenhagen is exploring the possibility of how best to legalize and regulate marijuana sales. The list goes on and on. I feel like marijuana is at a bubbling point, and that something very significant will happen in 2012, if not in the United States, somewhere abroad.
What do TWB readers think will be a big story in 2012? Or what are you looking forward to in regards to marijuana and 2012? With so many websites, apps, e-books, videos, etc, is there something in the world of technology that you think will be amazing, and if so, what?
