Marijuana Sales Now Legal in Colorado

"In a historic swirl of commerce and cannabis, the world's first licensed stores able to sell marijuana legally to anyone over 21 opened in Colorado on Wednesday," the Denver Post reports.

"Thousands of people from Telluride to Denver cheerfully stood in lines that took hours to navigate for the chance to buy legal marijuana after presenting nothing more than an I.D. Marijuana activists hailed the day as a watershed in their effort to overturn anti-cannabis laws. Store owners -- several of whom said the turnout exceeded even their own ambitious expectations -- feared running out of supply."

New York Times: "While about 20 states allow medical marijuana, voters in Colorado and Washington State decided last year to go one step further, becoming the first in the nation to legalize small amounts of the plant for recreational use and regulate it like alcohol."
