    How is this going to work with federal drug laws?

    Will the DEA come to Boulder and start rounding up people with one plant in their home?

    I think the Colorado law will allow state licensed dispensaries and people can have 6 plants in their home.

    The federal drug laws will have to change and legalize drugs. There is no doubt that having a nation of drug users will benefit the federal government.

    It's been benefiting them since they started cashing in on people's propensity to abuse substances, back in the 80's.

    Like the massive police state and prison-industrial complex built up around the fool "war" on (some) drugs hasn't?


    Wow.

    To the op, it's going to contradict federal law, and won't be recognized as as legitimate by federal authorities.

    It's the same that happens in CA, though in the end the feds can only do so much, especially with more states jumping on the weed bandwagon.

    Once enough states allow it the feds will be forced to reconsider it's prohibition.

    Non-answer with some weak partisan hackery.

    Stay out of my threads.

    You think the laws are keeping people from smoking pot, how cute.

    CA is only medical marijuana.

    Colorado is going to have state licensed dispensary. Local law enforcement will not be helping the DEA.

    Of course not, like the gun laws are keeping criminals from using guns...


    The point I would like to bring up, since pot is becoming legal in certain areas, where does the tax on pot fall in place?
