A lot has happened in the last 24 hours and the presidential election isn't the only thing that may surprise you. According to ABC News Colorado and Washington passed referendums legalizing marijuana for recreational use.

They will become the first states in the country to legalize the drug. The initiatives would allow marijuana to be cultivated and for special stores to sell up to an ounce to individuals 21 and older.

I have been told that when the news was announced people were "lighting up" outside government buildings.
