Recreational use of marijuana is now legal in Colorado and Washington.

According to Newsday, Washington will allow anyone 21-years-old and older to purchase as much as one ounce (28 grams) of marijuana from a licensed retailer while Colorado will allow for possession of an ounce and permits the growing of up to six marijuana plants in a private area.

These are the first states in the country to legalize recreational use of the drug. Lawmakers are still trying to figure out how they will follow through because marijuana is still considered illegal by federal law.
