Editorial: Why Hasn't Denver's Police Chief Been Fired for Violating Marijuana Laws?

In Hawaii County (the "Big Island") this week, city councilmembers respect their constituents so much that they approved a marijuana reform initiative for the ballot despite insufficient signatures.

When will the failed and not very noble experiment be ended, so we can start to clean up the mess it's left for us?
