Gun Rights and Pot Shops Equals Strange Bedfellows

There’s an odd political conundrum stirring for the left in at least one of the two states that voted to make marijuana legal for recreational use. In Washington state, there has long been arguments for and against pot legalization. For now, in the two states, the legalization point is moot. However, it’s not just that cannabis is legal in a couple of states, there’s another issue arising out of the political smoke cloud. And it isn’t what you’d expect.

In general, the political left tends to support marijuana legalization and oppose gun rights. On the other hand, the political right tends to oppose legalizing recreational pot but supports the Second Amendment. Well, interesting bedfellows might be in the making.
