- You'll have to bring your own pot. There's a whole other set of legalities for dispensaries.

- Local businesses will be required to apply for pot licenses. It will mirror the process of obtaining an alcohol permit.

- Those who objected to the legislation were concerned over liability insurance and the dangers of mixing pot and heavy alcohol use. Please inhale safely.
