Felony drug charges for 1 man, even though pot is legal

State law has decriminalized marijuana in Colorado, so that means that no one can get in trouble for using it, right?

Washington decriminalized pot around the same time as Colorado did, which is leaving some people fearing that additional raids could soon strike our state.

The problem, investigators say, lies in the lack of a legal infrastructure for punishing those who are accused of Internet violations. Even though federal regulations mandate jail time in many similar cases, the state system simply has not had the time to catch up with these relatively new technological developments.
