A medical marijuana plant is shown at Seattle’s Northwest Patient Resource Center medical marijuana dispensary, on Nov. 7. After voters weighed in on election day, Colorado and Washington became the first states to allow legal pot for recreational use, but they may face resistance from federal regulations.
