Voters in this town legalize pot

DENVER (AP) - November 4, 2009

A ballot measure passed overwhelmingly yesterday in the Colorado ski town that would legalize marijuana.

Voters gave thumbs-up to the proposal to allow adults over 21 to have up to an ounce of pot.

But the voters could just be blowing smoke.

Marijuana possession is still a state crime for people without medical clearance.

Supporters hope the vote sends a message to local authorities about law enforcement priorities.
