    In this April 30, 2012 photo, co-owner Kevin Wallace pours a shot of hashish-infused grapeseed oil over an order of stir-fried vegetables and meat at the Earth Dragon Edibles Restaurant & Lounge in Ashland, Ore. While medical marijuana cafes abound in Portland, Ore., restaurants dedicated to medical marijuana patients have been slow to gain traction. Earth Dragon is trying to overcome objections from City Hall that the restaurant violates federal drug laws, even though the hashish is given away for free. (AP Photo/Jeff Barnard)

    Mark Brown (R), a supervisor with the metro Denver Criminal Enforcement Section of the state of Colorado's Medical Marijuana Enforcement Division looks at the label on a jar of buds as the manager sits in the background at a medical marijuana center in Denver April 2, 2012. Among the states with medical marijuana, Colorado stands out because it has chosen to develop a comprehensive system to regulate marijuana, unlike states that have taken a hands-off approach or left it to local authorities. Voters in Colorado will be asked to decide on legalization in November, in polls that come even as the federal government has clamped down on medical cannabis in several mostly Western states.
