HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - Should marijuana be legalized for recreational use by adults? That is the question that voters in three states are considering this November. Colorado, Washington and Oregon all have ballot measures that, if passed, would end marijuana prohibition in their state.
Colorado's Amendment 64 which seeks the legalization of marijuana for adults age 21 and older appears to be popular among voters.

According to a new report by the Colorado Center on Law & Policy,
