Washington and Colorado have also overwhelmingly approved their own initiatives legalizing the use of marijuana, only not just for medicinal use, but for recreational smokers as well. Selling the measure on the strength of allowing law enforcement to focus energies elsewhere, tight state regulation and generating income, proponents were rewarded with major support in urban areas.
