Today, weed became legal in Colorado and Washington. In Washington, people crowded around the space needle and waited until midnight PST to toke up in honor of the law becoming in fact, the law. In November, both states passed initiatives legalizing the possession of an ounce of marijuana for adults. However, selling it and growing it is still considered a felony.

According to CNN, “a legal haze still engulfed pot smokers Thursday, when possession of up to an ounce of marijuana by adults become legal, though growing and selling it remains a crime. Initiative 502, passed last month by Washington voters, legalized recreational marijuana use starting December 6, but it will take a year before there are rules for growing and selling it.”
