pueblonative: I seriously want the Broncos and Seahawks to get to the Super Bowl just to see the governor's bet. Cheeba bowl, anyone
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.
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.
