more generic

Your description should be more generic and not only for "Colorado/USA". OSM tagging is worldwide. --Pieren (talk) 11:02, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

Ok, I did a bit of re-wording. --russdeffner 21:29, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

Amazing what one learns from reading the OSM Wiki, for anyone who wishes to know a bit more about Pieren's comment see Marijuana on Wikipedia

should be shop=cannabis

The term cannabis is more accepted around the world, and less USA-centric. Marijuana was a name invented in the 1900s for racist effect.

I believe you are correct and have begun the initial switch to using cannabis rather than marijuana. --russdeffner 18:48, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
