Recreational Marijuana Measures Pass in Two States

For the first time in U.S. history, two states have passed laws to legalize and regulate marijuana intended for recreational use. The successful ballot initiatives in Colorado and Washington are controversial and what will occur as the states take measures to begin implementation is highly debated and uncertain. While recreational marijuana use is now technically legal for residents of these areas, it remains a schedule I narcotic according to federal mandate, and federal government officials have not yet made a public statement as to how they will react to these laws. They have, however, been increasingly aggressive in their crackdowns of dispensaries that sell medical marijuana in the 17 states where it is legal (Massachusetts became the 18th last Tuesday), and this may be an indication of how the Department of Justice plans to handle these new matters.
