The Supreme Court ruled on a handful of cases today and employers came out on the winning side on several. Experts say the court continues to lean right on many issues -- but perhaps most notably when it comes to business. Also, Colorado and Washington are making recreational marijuana fully legal starting in 2014. Each state is furiously drafting regulations to set up the first-ever regulated commercial cannabis markets.
