Colorado legalizes marijuana

6 Nov, 2012

Colorado voters pass Ammendment 64 which legalizes the recreational use of marijuana for Coloradans 21 years of age or over. A64 allows Coloradans to possess up to one ounce of marijuana and grow up to six plants in their home. Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper:

The voters have spoken and we have to respect their will. 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.
