There very much is a legal debate. The Federal Government is not enumerated to regulate marijuana in the US Constitution. In fact the use of the interstate commerce clause is a loose one at best. further, if the Feds think they're going to destroy a solid source of tax revenue for the State of Colorado and win elections...they'll get the business come election time. We're being a responsible state and there is no compelling legal argument to have it be illegal. None.
