Hooray, Denver! Hooray, Seattle! Hooray, pot reform! This is very good news. Let the drug war die the death of a thousand little cuts!

If enough cities pass stopgap measures like these, pot activists posit, a state or two will legalize marijuana.

I thought the whole kernel of the problem with this was that there are federal marijuana laws that states/cities can't do a whole hell of a lot about.

2. States can stop pot arrests and prosecutions that aren't charged federally. And less than one percent of pot cases are charged federally--those are mostly grow operations of over 250 plants or trafficking.

So, for instance, if a state decriminalizes pot for under 40 grams, anyone who stays below that limit would be protected.
