The voters in Washington and Colorado may have decided to end their war against recreational pot, but national and international law enforcement types are pushing for the feds to overrule those state actions.
The International Narcotics Control Board is warning that legalization of pot by states violates international treaties. And a bunch of former U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration honchos are urging the Obama Administration to nullify Colorado's and Washington's actions before it's too late.
Connecticut has decriminalized possession of small amounts of marijuana and authorized the growing and sale of medical pot in this state. But we're a long way from following the lead of Washington and Colorado on total legalization.
On the other hand, if the feds let those two states do what their voters want and the skies don't fall in, maybe Connecticut will start thinking about ending the prohibition against recreational use of marijuana here.
