From New Year's Day Through the World Cup Final, Here's a Chronicle of 2014

Linked below is a running chronicle of calendar year 2014.  One the day of this post, it covers January 1, 2014 through July 13, 2013. In the coming days, I will update the record of this year as events dictate.

I will be using this record of 2014 in the high school courses that I teach.

Marijuana Sales for Recreational Use Now Legal in the State of Washington

State of Washington
July 8, 2014 will be remembered as a milestone date stemming from the results of Election Day, November 6, 2012.

One the same day that the American electorate awarded President Barack Obama with a second term, voters in the state of Washington approved a referendum allowing for the legal sales of recreational marijuana for the northwestern state.

Nearly two years later---Tuesday, July 8, 2014---legal recreational marijuana sales began in Washington.
