I am sorry asking you on daily basis. But I appreciate all of your support.
Now I am reading this article, and I came across this paragraph, saying,
While many other states have legalized marijuana through voter referendums that can leave details to be agreed upon after the fact, Illinois became the first state in the country to legalize through the legislative process.
Would in my assumption in this context the word "fact" mean be equal with such words "consequence" or "the result"?
Thank you for support again.
