In Denver, TV cameras and journalists filled Denver's Discreet Dispensary, as the store's first customer, Sean Azzariti, purchased a legal amount of marijuana. Azzariti, an Iraq war veteran, said he purchased the drug to alleviate symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. Possession, cultivation and private personal consumption of marijuana by adults for the sake of just getting high has already been legal in Colorado for more than a year under a state constitutional amendment approved by voters. But as of Wednesday, cannabis was being legally produced, sold and taxed in a similar way to alcohol. Report by Mark Morris.
