Card Conundrum Develops in Colorado Over Marijuana Sales

Buying marijuana for recreational use now is legal in Colorado-and paying for
it with plastic is getting easier. The official rules of Visa Inc. (NYSE: V)
and MasterCard Inc. (NYSE: MA)prohibit the use of their debit and credit cards
for marijuana purchases, but some Colorado merchants are allowing customers to
use them anyway.

That is because the card giants, owners of the processing networks that handle
electronic payments, have quietly decided not to enforce their rules,
according to people familiar with their strategies. Instead, the people said,
the companies are following the lead of the federal government, which has said
it won't challenge state laws that decriminalize the drug. To read the entire
