Colorado and Washington voters approved legalizing marijuana:
Colorado and Washington became the first states to legalize marijuana for adult recreational use, setting up a showdown with federal authorities over the enforcement of national drug laws.
With 63 percent of the vote counted, Coloradoâ€™s Amendment 64 was leading by a margin of 54 to 46 percent. Washingtonâ€™s Initiative 502 was declared victorious shortly after the polls closed, while a third legalization measure in Oregon appeared poised to go down to defeat.
That showdown with the federal government should be interesting.
Okay, one other bright spot: The firearms industry should enjoy continued good health for a while.
