"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.

Video at the link. 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.
Proving once again, the stupidest people are those who govern us. Get involved in govt people, refuse to be governed by your inferiors.
