Marijuana measure passes

Initiative 502, which legalizes recreational marijuana use for adults in Washington, will pass.

The Associated Press has called the race, and we here at Spin Control agree. It's at 56 percent yes to 44 percent no, and that's too big of a  margin to turn around.

Next up: A clash between the state and the federal government over conflicting marijuana laws.
