Hot Topic: Marijuana legalized?

Posted: Updated:

According to FOX news, Washington and Colorado have become the first states to legalize the recreational use of marijuana.

It could lead to a fight with the Federal government which prohibits the use of the drug, according to the report.

The  measure in Colorado states "adults over 21 can possess up to 1 ounce of marijuana, or six marijuana plants, for personal use. Opponents have said it will make the state a haven for drug tourists"

In Washington, the initiative "will legalize and regulate the production, possession and distribution of marijuana for residents age 21 and older."

So we want to know, do you think marijuana should be legalized? Post your responses on our FOX 5 AtlantaFacebook page, tweet us @GoodDayAtlanta, or email us at goodday@myfoxatlanta.com! We'll read some of your responses during the 9 am hour of Good Day Atlanta.

    I think this is what many of us assume about outlet mall shopping -- we get rock bottom prices on everything from clothes to housewares on brand names that are either leftovers from last year or this year's overstock. Well, it's not quite like that.
