Praising Colorado's approach, members of an international delegation shared their concerns and hopes as they move toward legalization of marijuana.

After a tour of the RiverRock dispensary Wednesday in Denver, government officials and legislators from Uruguay, Mexico and Canada said Colorado is proving that pot can be legally regulated, leading to significant opportunities and changes for their countries.

"This gives us a big lesson," said Rene Fujiwara, a congressman in Mexico. "There are facilities like this in my country, but people there are armed, doing it illegally and provoking a lot of social damage."
