Colorado, Washington Become First States to Legalize Marijuana
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Drugs!
I guess we know how Washington and Colorado are celebrating tonight.
In a groundbreaking move, Colorado and Washington voters have passed referendums legalizing marijuana for recreational use. The drug is still banned under federal law.
Colorado's Proposition 64 to the state's constitution makes it legal for anyone over the age of 21 to possess marijuana and for businesses to sell it.
"The voters have spoken and we have to respect their will," Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper said in a statement. "This will be a complicated process, but we intend to follow through. That said, federal law still says marijuana is an illegal drug so don't break out the Cheetos or gold fish too quickly."
Don't listen to him. Cheetos! Goldfish!! Taco Bell!!!
Get that bud!

Rocky Mountain High sounds like the name of a great fight song.
More like John Denver, actually.
