A year after marijuana legalisation in Colorado, 'everything's fine' confirm police

Quote:"It's been a year since Colorado became the first U.S. state to legalize marijuana for recreational use," "to see how some $1 billion US in sales has impacted the state's capital."

"Police officers were worried when Amendment 64 first passed, a Denver police officer tells Sherren, but that fear turned out to be unfounded."

"We found there hasn't been much of a change of anything," he said. "Basically, officers aren't seeing much of a change in how they do police work."

But not all lawmakers are convinced legalization is the right route. Gov. John Hickenlooper recently called legalization reckless, while Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock said he's against legalization.

Despite their concerns, the state has collected some $60 million US in pot tax revenue since passing the amendment.

Video at the link. spock.gif Interesting. Too bad the Gov. John Hickenlooper and Denver Mayor are uneducated weenies when it comes to this. I say they should not dictate how any of the revenue is spent. lol.gif
Proving once again, the stupidest people are those who govern us. Get involved in govt people, refuse to be governed by your inferiors.

All you have to do is look at what went on in Portugal when they legalized everything. Stupid laws made in the 30's to protect industry are no longer applicable.
Everything we were ever taught about addiction is propaganda. To anyone in the mental health field or anyone in govt or law enforcement please read the following.

Refuse to perpetuate the cycle of being misinformed and passing it along to others, you are destroying innocent lives based on lies and you are lying to yourselves and everyone around you.
That is what's really criminal.

The govt/political/religious/prison industrial complex has a dirty little secret. Shocking that HuffPo could actually publish truth.

Personally I don't smoke but I have no problem with legalisation. I remember at university my halls of residence porter said he preferred the stoners to the drinkers because they were easier to manage. I guess legalisation allows for more taxes that can be spent helping addicts. My only concern is skunk is now 32 - 34 percent T.H.C so I'm not sure how that would impact on mental health but I look at Holland and having been there a few times I don't see much negative impact if any. However I'm no expert so I can't really make an informed judgement.

I can see by your coat my friend you're from the other side. Just one thing I got to know. Who won?

I used to work at a manufacturing plant where the foreman said the exact same thing, and he said the stoners were good at coming up with creative solutions, not so much for the drinkers.

The attitude on stoners has shifted. They show up for work everyday, it's the bottle heads that have the real problems.
