U.S. allows states to legalize recreational marijuana within limits

RE: U.S. allows states to legalize recreational marijuana within limits
What kind of numbers are being provided in this "experiment"? If you give adults access to something, they'll find a way to get it to minors. Criminal interests may lose a foothold on their respective monopolies, which can be an advantage, but enough to satisfy the whims of Obama's administration? I'd be suspicious of the terms of the other six areas.

All the U.S. has done is eased up on federally "policing" marijuana, and passed that responsibility onto Colorado and Washington. Now the states will have to fight, and spend both their policing and monetary resources, to keep Mary under control, giving the fed some breathing room and allowing it to focus its energies on other areas of interest.

And Obama can recall the decision at any time based on even the smallest infringement if "he so chooses", an act that may help to solidify the power of the federal government in the minds of the people. Unless the U.S. administration has had a change of heart in its oppression of its citizens, there is no way this decision will last.

Funny, though. I expected Canada to keep a step ahead of the U.S. in terms of decriminalisation, if not legalisation, of marijuana.
