Excerpt:

(CNN) — On Tuesday, Colorado and Washington became the first two states to legalize recreational use of marijuana. The referendums come at a time when more than a third of states have approved the cannabis plant for medicinal purposes. Proponents for legalizing marijuana tout its pain-relieving benefits and use by cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatments; opponents stress that science has yet to prove the drug is safe. It’s a bit like the fairytale, “Jack and the Beanstalk.” This “magic” plant that could help with everything from glaucoma to ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, could also contain unknown dangers to our heart, lungs and brain. The real question is, if we legalize marijuana, will we all live happily ever after?

OLYMPIA, Wash. –  Thurston County Sheriff’s deputies found two 5-foot alligators at a marijuana grow site where a man was shot on Monday evening. Lieutenant Greg Elwin says deputies responded to the scene in the Scott Lake area south of Olympia when a man called 911 to say he had shot another man. The shooter told investigators that he fired in self defense, but investigators say they believe he actually shot the other man during a drug buy. The 30-year-old man who was shot was taken to a local hospital and was expected to recover. The 41-year-old alleged gunman was booked into jail for investigation of attempted murder. Elwin says the alligators found by deputies were likely being used to protect the drugs. The sheriff’s office is working with county Animal Services to determine what will happen to the alligators.
