A legal Rocky Mountain high
Marijuana, still illegal under federal law, is now at the center of a thriving industry thats attracting a new breed of entrepreneurs, as Colorado becomes the first state to allow the sale of pot for recreational use.
Colorado made history as the first state in the U.S. to legalize marijuana for recreational use. NBC News correspondent Harry Smith tells the story behind this stunning development, which has been called one of the great social experiments of the next century.

MM, you are quick!
I don’t like Starbuds tm. They over roast the leaves,
gives it a bitter taste.
I like their double Lotte decaff Majoon though.
Where are the head shops getting their pot? Is it now legal to grow it in Colorado?
Dunno. You better watch the show.
Yes it is legal but highly regulated and tracked. Every individual planta is tracked by the government.
I think they have commercial growers approved by the state. I know I read of one company that was ramping up a huge indoor facility to try to meet demand. You can also grow your own legally, but I think that’s only for a handful of plants, you can’t supply the neighborhood or anything like that.
I heard the Girl Scouts set up a cookie stand outside one of the marijuana shops ...
Hopefully it's the beginning of the end of a 77-year old failed social experiment: federal prohibition of MJ.
Enacted to prevent black jazz musicians from having sex with white women, doncha know ...
Colorado the Loser State bump for later......
Free enterprise is grand, ain’t it?
I refuse to order from Starbuds, because they make me call a twenty-sack a “vente”. Sorry, but this is America, dagnabbit!
Dope and homosex. That’s certainly what America stands for nowadays. The US flag should replace the stars-and-stripes with depictions of marijuana leaves and anuses.
What a depraved cesspool of a country this has become.
“Rocky Mountain Hiiiigh ...in Colorado”
Where is John Denver now?
It was just announced the tax income to a local city from only two store fronts for the month of January was $57,000.
The politicians feel they have found a gold mine for political revenue.
Let’s get to the meat of the issue. How many Coloradians as a percentage are now getting high because it’s legal? How many new pot heads?
Schools will be holding pot parties instead of pizza parties...
Can’t tell you, but the Bronco’s play off game had large numbers of San Diego fans here sampling for a week before the game and the same with the New England fans.
Can you grow your own and skip paying the head shops?
