Is it really legal?
"...In a statement, AG John Suthers warned that the amendment sets up a conflict with federal laws, which still ban the use and possession of marijuana. The amendment doesn’t change the state’s existing medical marijuana system.
Federal officials say they’re examining the voter-approved initiative but have no plans to change their enforcement strategy.
'The Department of Justice’s enforcement of the Controlled Substances Act remains unchanged. In enacting the Controlled Substances Act, Congress determined that marijuana is a Schedule I controlled substance. We are reviewing the ballot initiative and have no additional comment at this time,' Jeff Dorschner, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Denver said in a statement.
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder in 2009 said federal officials are committed to enforcing the federal Controlled Substances Act, which bans marijuana. Federal officials have previously used that law to prosecute Coloradans, even if they claimed protection under the state's medical-marijuana laws."
