DENVER - Colorado on Tuesday become the first state to legalize the possession and sale of marijuana for recreational use, in defiance of federal law. A similar measure in Washington state also appeared headed for voter approval.

Supporters of a Colorado constitutional amendment legalizing marijuana declared victory and opponents conceded defeat after returns showed the measure garnering nearly 53 percent of the vote vs. 47 percent against.

In Washington, cannabis legalization measure was leading by a handy margin, according to state returns, and local media, including the Seattle Times, called the race in favor of approval.
