After just one day of recreational marijuana sales in Washington state, and more than six months in Colorado, the questions that remain are mostly about those pot-infused food products. And, when it comes to food safety, Washington state is off to a safer start than Colorado. Only in those two states now can anyone age 21 or older purchase pot without permission from a doctor.
