So many notable marijuana stories and so little time to blog 'em all

As my my Marijuana Law, Policy and Reform seminar winds down with students working on final papers, local, state, national and international stories concerning modern marijuana reform efforts is really starting to heat up.  Here are headlines and links from just today's latest news of note:

  • From CNN here, "Uruguay to legalize marijuana, Senate says"

  • From the Denver Post here, "Colorado officials, pot businesses clash over inventory tracking"

  • From ESPN magazine here, "Smoke screen: It's time for the NFL to embrace a new pain reliever: marijuana"

  • From the Huffington Post here, "Polls Suggest California Is Poised To Legalize Marijuana In 2014"

  • From Politicker here, "Pols Begin Push to Legalize Marijuana in New York State"

  • From the San Jose Mercury News here, "San Jose medical marijuana crackdown begins after council vote on regulations"

I would be interested in reader perspectives on which of these stories seems the most notable and/or consequential for sentencing law and policy in particular or for American criminal justice more generally.
