    What's kind of odd (to me) is that after they ratified the amendment, it took another year before it went into effect....

    ... thus, it gave organized crime a full year to figure out how to take advantage of the opportunity. Coincidence?

    :bonk: :&

    Such a dumb idea on so many levels. Reactionary law-making is rarely a good thing. Unfortunately, we have a slew of social justice warriors that are non-stop pressuring lawmakers to create new laws based SOLELY on emotional reaction (and over-reaction) to flavor-of-the-day situations/problems.
