Austin American-Statesman - - THE SECOND FRONT - Com­piled from wire re­ports

Mar­i­juana for recre­ational use be­came le­gal in Colorado on Mon­day, when the gov­er­nor took the pro­ce­dural step of declar­ing the voter­ap­proved change part of the state con­sti­tu­tion. Colorado be­came the sec­ond state af­ter Washington to al­low pot use with­out a doc­tor’s rec­om­men­da­tion. Both states pro­hibit pub­lic use of the drug, and com­mer- cial sales in Colorado and Washington won’t be per­mit­ted un­til af­ter reg­u­la­tions are writ­ten next year. Adults over 21 in Colorado may now pos­sess up to an ounce of mar­i­juana, or six plants. lead­er­ship po­si­tions con­flicts with giv­ing guide­lines and the com­pany’s nondis­crim­i­na­tion pol­icy. The foun­da­tion says it will re­con­sider giv­ing money to the Boy Scouts if they change their pol­icy on sex­ual ori­en­ta­tion. Merck CEO Ken­neth C. Fra­zier was a Scout in his youth. Records show the foun­da­tion gave $30,000 to The Boy Scouts of Amer­ica in 2011 and $10,000 to the Cra­dle of Lib­erty Coun­cil.
