Seattleites now legally flying high

In US state of Washington, people can now legally use marijuana for recreational purposes after change in law.

    Drug use is illegal in the US and can carry a prison sentence under the federal law.

    For years, millions of US tourists have flown abroad, to places like the Netherlands, to legally smoke marijuana.

    Now, recreational users will not have to cross the ocean to enjoy a legal high.

    They can go to Seattle, Washington, where, as Rob Reynolds reports, voters have opted to make the drug completely legal recreational purposes.
