Federalism and Pot

We now have the odd situation where recreational pot use is legal according to Colorado law, while pot usage in general is illegal under federal law with very stiff penalties for being involved in the production and sales end.

I'm curious how this will end. I am not a fan of pot, but I think its prohibition has been a big mistake.

I'm kind of worried about people in Colorado who believe "it's legal here now" who may get in terrible federal trouble.

The current situation is unstable
but sadly, I'm unable
to foretell
whether this will end well.
