>>> the federal government still considers it an illegal drug but colorado does not. this was day two of retail recreational marijuana sales in colorado. it's as easy as going to the store. sales are brisk with customers remaining mostly mellow. in-state residents 21 and older can buy an ounce at a time. visitors, up to a quarter ounce. you can't smoke it in public. it is a felony to have over eight ounces and you can't bring it to the airport. it's now available in stores. as one customer told the l.a. times , quote, this is the amsterdam trip we couldn't take.
