For the first time in four years a game didn't end with a winner and a loser. Instead, the San Francisco 49ers and St. Louis Rams played to a 24-24 tie.

The legalization of the drug could be a big boost to tourism in Colorado and Washington. Voters approved the legalization last Tuesday and that could open the door to more people popping in for a visit. Both states have legalized small amounts of marijuana for adults over 21 and you don't have be an in-state resident to smoke it.
