November 6, view 2012 was an epic night in America’s history at President Barack Obama won re-election over Mitt Romney, and Washington state legalized two huge things: Referendum 74 which now allows for same-sex marriage, and Initiative 502 which legalizes the sale and consumption of limited amounts of cannabis/marijuana. As predicted, Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood was ablaze with local citizens who as a whole claimed a victory in the federal and local election outcomes.
