This state has always had such a strong Traditionalist grip on it. It has caused no end of problems when it comes to keeping up with the rest of the country, especially on a socio-cultural level. One of the defining characteristics was always the dogmatic and hypocritical hatred of drugs. I know that it’s only a small step but it’s a single step after a lifetime (for me) of standing completely still. Maybe I’m speaking too soon but I really have hope that this is a sign of progress to come.
