States Trying to Keep Better Tabs on Homegrown Pot
In Colorado, Oregon and Washington, where it is legal to grow marijuana at home for medical purposes, officials are worried growers may illegally sell their produce across state lines.
San Diego Legalizes Growing
Many people think of San Diego as one of the more conservative spots in otherwise mostly liberal California. But the San Diego city council voted 6-3 on Monday (Sept. 11) to legalize cultivation, manufacturing and testing of marijuana locally when new California laws take effect in January.
Concerns in Iowa Over Transporting Cannabis From Neighboring States

But this week, the state put that section of the law on hold over concerns it could pose a problem with federal restrictions.
