White House 'Just Says No' to Legal Pot

by Cristina González

In response to a petition to legalize and regulate marijuana, the White House said there is yet no scientific data to support legalization and that pot does not yet meet the modern standard for safe or effective medicinal use. However, it seems Colorado didn’t get the memo. It became the first state in the nation to issue business licenses for medical marijuana dispensaries and the makers of marijuana-infused products. Now that’s what we call a Rocky Mountain high.
