6. While I agree that this won't be a high priority for the rest of the country/Congress...

I truly hope and believe that the Feds will back off. I just think if they try to come in to Colorado (I live outside of Boulder) there will be some MAJOR pushback from the people. This vote wasn't even close, and there was never a serious campaign against it. I think people here are sick to death of the "War on drugs", and want our cops and DA's to work on real crime.

I may be a little pollyanna on this, but the vote was historic and has been well received. When both the Denver and Boulder DA's said they were going to drop all of the small possession cases that were pending, I realized that we truly did turn a corner.

If the feds want to fight this, they will be on their own.
