Do U.S. drug laws apply differently to minorities?

Colorado is cashing in on pot. It's been six months since recreational marijuana became legal, and the state has already collected more than $11 million dollars in taxes.

19-year-old Colorado woman accused of trying to help ISIS

(CNN) - A Colorado woman was arrested at the Denver airport in April and charged with conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists, according to court documents that were unsealed Wednesday.

Shannon Maureen Conley, 19, told FBI agents before her arrest that she was going to be with a member of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, that she had met through the Internet.

Her attorney, Robert William Pepin, told CNN he had no comment.

Conley was arrested on a jetway while trying to board a flight to Germany on April 8, according to a criminal complaint. She told investigators she was going to Turkey to await word from her suitor.

Conley, a certified nurse aide, had told FBI agents she was going to be the man's wife and a nurse in a ISIS camp near the Turkish border.
