But I could make a phone call and get it delivered if I wanted some.  And depending on who I called, I could probably get a free beej with the weed.  And I'm nowhere near CO or WA.

"A free beej" from a herpes-ridden thug named Rufus does not impress me.

I quit smoking in my 20s because it gave me a headache, and I finally decided the headache wasn't worth the high.

CSB.  When I was a teen working at a restaurant one of my co-workers brought in a batch of brownies he'd cooked at home.  Very nice stuff.  Our baker was a very nice lady in her 60s or 70s.  After a bit we heard her singing "Oh I wish I were an Oscar Meyer Weiner" as she baked.  I went to Mike and asked "did you give her a brownie?".  "She saw me eating one and asked if she could have one.  What was I supposed to say?".

She never said a word about it.

Very few places are actually going to be able to sell it on January 1st. Fortunately, I know of one just a few miles away that will be opening its doors at 7 am.
I plan on getting there at around 6 am. Not that I need the weed, I probably have a three month supply on hand right now.
I just want to be able to post a picture of my receipt on Facebook to piss off friends in other States.

Ika7734: you can still get fired if you fail the test, doesn't matter how legal it is.  The news is whipping this into more of frenzy here in Colorado than anywhere else.  Most folks I know still have the attitude of "not worth my job."

So many people are going to open up shops that I think it's going to go the other way, a big boom for a bit, and then many of the stores will shut down and then level out.  That's what happened with the medical dispensaries.  I used to see tons of dispensaries, there's still quite a few, but now many of the smaller ones are gone.

Lol- big box pot stores are gonna put the mom and pop pot shops out of business.  Weed Mart, PotCo, Home DePot

The real trick will be to make sure we don't accidentally put the baked goods away in the kitchen at my parents' condo next time we're out there.

Although, my mother on drugs would be funny.

I look forward to the Nebraska state patrol putting up drug sniffing dog sign check points and watching people pulling off in the middle of nowhere.  That's when they get you.  If you're stupid enough to transport it, you'll be stupid enough to fall for it -- even with this heads up!!!

Thank you in advance for keeping our taxes low!!!

my lip balm addiction: Breaker Moran: Here in Denver, folks seem to be pretty quiet about the new retail environment for pot.  I tend to believe that people largely are not interested and those inclined to use cannabis have had ready access to the stuff for years and years.  Again, I really think most people don't care or are a bit wary of a possible increase in an already increasing number of knuckleheads and dumbassery, overtly and insidiously (with the latter think THC-laden gummy bears, etc.).

Among the people I know who have red cards for medical pot, they complain about how expensive it is.  The retail stuff is going to be expensive, too.  If all goes well, that will be a leveling factor without a doubt.

I think the idea of pot tourism is rather stupid -- it's not like some tourists here aren't already stoned as they ski or board or stroll the 16th Street and Pearl Street Malls.  Local public radio stupidly tried to create an issue around the question ¨Where are tourists going to smoke their pot?¨, citing that one can't smoke in public or in one's hotel room, somehow imagining that no tourist ever got stoned before in Colorado.

As far as the possibility of anticipated ¨shortages¨ go, that's a bunch of nonsense.  I have no way of knowing for certain, but I have a feeling that supply will always far outweigh demand.  Any ¨shortage" will likely be artificial, created to jack up prices.

The one that cracks me up is the MADD-types who think that "now" there will be all sorts of stoners on the streets driving around all farked up. Sorry you farking head-up-your-ass morons, but we stoners have been driving that way for years - often lighting the bowl/spliff/blunt while driving.

Making pot legal is not going to make the roads any worse - conjure up a different scandal.

Of course it's still a DUI
