Marijuana Pioneers Relaxing Rules

    In this photo taken Thursday, March 28, 2019, employees Dan Giroux, left, and Dustin Barrington ring up
    sales for customers at a marijuana shop in Seattle. When Washington and Colorado launched their
    pioneering marijuana industries in the face of U.S. government prohibition, they imposed strict rules in
    hopes of keeping the U.S. Justice Department at bay. Five years later, federal authorities have stayed
    away, but the industry says it has been stifled by over-regulation. Lawmakers in both states have heard
    the complaints and are moving to ease the rules.
