I would be pretty terrified to go back and play any of the original Resident Evil's. I know it is a beloved series and I loved 2 and 3 when I first played them. Something just tells me that they might not hold up to my memory.
So while the nation was looking towards the presidential elections (understandably so) and there was the crazy weed stuff going on in Washington, Colorado, Massachusetts and Arkansas, here locally, madness was breaking out.
I live in a mid size county in the state of Texas where, shockingly, the legal sale of alcohol has been forbidden since the beginning of time. The sale of booze was allowed in restaurants and bars, but you had to have a "membership" to purchase and enjoy. This usually only meant the establishment you were in would have to swipe your driver's license and you would have to sign some damned form in order to drink adult beverages. It was all very stupid.
For the last month, two groups have been formed in my community. The new blood who demanded this antiquated law be overturned and re voted on (it had not been even on the ballot to vote for since 1979). Then there were the crusty, (usually Baptist) old guard who insisted the community would be damaged beyond repair and to get voters to overturn with wicked proposal. It was going to be a fierce fight.
Both sides campaigned very vocally and it seemed more people were out in early voting than I have ever seen before. It was an emotional issue.
Needless to say, we drinkers won. I will now be able to enjoy my Chimay's, Brooklyn's, Shiner's and Tank 7's without having to drive outside my county to retrieve them.
Small victory, but victory nonetheless.
Anyone else have anything crazy like this happen?
@Atlas: You have to be a resident of the state to purchase it legally, so I am sure there will be some idiots that move there for "the bud", but I doubt inundation will occur.
At any rate, I think it has to be this way on a state to state level, because federally the law won't change for a while. However the more states that stand up and say it's ok to have the mary jane will just allow for the feds to eventually be forced to be ok with it. Eventually so many tax dollars will be fueled into the the states governments from the legal sale of weed that it would cripple their systems if the feds tried to take it away.
It is all so stupid anyway. It's just a damned plant.
@Oscar__Explosion: This is what I have always done since party chat was an option. I don't understand why more people don't do this.
