Washington state has become the first in America to allow the recreational use of cannabis, setting up a potential showdown with the US federal government.
The states that have legalized recreational marijuana use reflect regional differences in cultural and communal values within the United States. This is quite a quandry with fascinating ramifications as popular cultural values clash with political tradition.
Questions to Ponder: What will the Federal government do considering that a state law is contradicting a federal law? Will other states follow? Would a California employee fail a drug test is the drugs were legally consumed in a different state? Will Washington and Colorado receive more weekend tourism?
