Wanda James, a former Navy intelligence officer and Obama fundraiser who runs an edible cannabis business, poses in her company kitchen in Denver, Colorado, May 25, 2012. The Rocky Mountain State already allows the use of marijuana for medical purposes such as severe pain relief, and some communities have embraced it enthusiastically. The prevalence of medical marijuana dispensaries in Denver has moved pot into the mainstream in Colorado's capital city, advocates and political leaders say. In Denver County, home to about 600,000 people, one in every 41 residents is a registered medical marijuana patient, leading to chuckles about the "Mile High City." Picture taken May 25, 2012.
