Marijuana possession became legal in Washington state Thursday, as did same-sex marriage.
Voters in Washington and Colorado last month made those the first states to decriminalize and regulate the recreational use of marijuana. Washington's law, which took effect at 12:01 a.m. PST, allows adults to have up to an ounce of pot, but bans public use of marijuana, which is punishable by a fine, just like drinking in public.
