Smoke clears for attitudes on pot, voters respond

Washington (CNN) - Pot has come a long way. How close are we to legalization?

Three cities in Michigan voted on Tuesday to legalize marijuana and the first East Coast city - Portland, Maine – did, too.

Conservative group continues to pile money into anti-Obamacare ads

(CNN) - Conservative advocacy group Americans for Prosperity's anti-Obamacare efforts have now topped $7.6 million in spending over the last few weeks with Thursday's announcement of a new $1.7 million ad buy.

According to a release, the ad buy marks the group's third wave of TV, radio and web ads going after the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare. As the ads have done in the past, the new round will applaud lawmakers who've opposed the law and blast those who've supported it.
