Well, despite the fact that rather you liked the outcome of the election or not, prop. 64 is passed and approved in California. What that means is that basically smoking weed will be legal. This could bring a certain degree of concerns since marijuana mainly is used to relax the body, many questions and restrictions should be addressed correctly. For example, can one drive and smoke pot at the same time? Etc. Furthermore, a study shows that people who smoked weed tend to look younger but have a higher risk of cardiac arrest (2.4% vs 0.8%), even though the marijuana users carry less cardiac disease factors. Furthermore, the users might be two times more likely to develop stress cardiomyopathy. But to be fair, marijuana has helped numerous patients to get through their stress issues, pain issues, and much more. I think that marijuana usage should definitely be strictly controlled as if it was a substance similar to alcohol.
