If you're 21 years or older and live in Washington state, congrats! Starting Tuesday, you can legally buy weed without a prescription. It's a big day in the state's history for sure. So how are people handling this momentous occasion?

Some got in line early. As they say, early bird gets the weed.

Deb here even waited overnight to get her stash.

Others had a loved one keep them company while they waited.

And boy, what a long, long wait it was.

Even journalists had trouble containing their excitement.

But hey, you have to get everything just right for the big day.

Make sure the shops are clean and clear.

Ready those cameras for the perfect moment.

Hang up the rules somewhere.

And yes, that includes a rule about standing in line.

HOLY CRAP HOW LONG ARE THOSE LINES?

But it was all worth it in the end for a little legal weed.

Let me repeat that: legal weed.

LEGAL WEED, BABY.

Even dogs got in on the fun.

We're excited for you, Mama!

You too, beard guy!

HISTORY IN THE MAKING, PEOPLE.
