In last month's election, the voters of Colorado
and Washington state passed ballot measures
making the use of marijuana legal for adults, as
well as regulating the production and sale of
marijuana in a manner similar to alcohol.
However, marijuana-related activities remain
illegal under federal law. Do you feel President
