Gov. John Hickenlooper talks about Amendment 64 at the State Capitol in Denver, Monday, Dec. 10, 2012. Marijuana for recreational use became legal in Colorado Monday, when Hickenlooper took a purposely low-key procedural step of declaring the voter-approved change part of the state constitution. Hickenlooper, a Democrat, opposed the measure but had no veto power over the voter-approved amendment to the state constitution. (AP Photo/The Denver Post, Craig F. Walker) Photo by
