Colorado & Washington to Feds: Put This in Your Pipe and Smoke it

Potheads in two states might have been too stoned to notice, but it's now legal to smoke marijuana for recreational use, in defiance of Federal law.
Washington and Colorado voted for the new law yesterday and, of course, are the first states in the country to have legalized the use of pot beyond medicinal uses.
From an online article:
The Drug Policy Alliance, a national advocacy group that backed the initiatives, said the outcome in Washington and Colorado reflected growing national support for liberalized pot laws, citing a Gallup poll last year that found 50 percent of Americans favored making it legal, versus 46 opposed.
