In all honesty amendment 64 will never see the light of day. The USDOJ will keep it tied up in the court system until the Supreme Court strikes it down.

This definitely improves my chances of moving to Colorado for retirement, and I don't even smoke marihuana and don't really plan to.

Just like they've done with state medical marijuana laws that have been on the books since 1996? Oh wait...

Having lived in San Francisco and here, I can honestly say that smoking weed is more prevalent here.

Do you think this could be the same scenario in CO?
I think that the prominent social theory claims that economies bloom organically from dense populations. With an anchor industry, they're more stable. Here, the anchor is the military. So, as long as the military is here, the economy should only get better with a growth in population.

More people, more businesses, more choices, more competition, better quality of life.

Don't ask me the name of that theory. It's been over a decade since I had to read about it.

Really? The both hold the same federal classification. Both are the same amount illegal by federal law.

There will also be some people who will leave Colorado because of this--many of them long-time productive Coloradans who don't find it necessary to be a pothead to be happy and don't want to be around such people in their neighborhoods or workplaces. I may be one of them. Maybe some dips***t pothead will buy my house--cash up front, of course--if they are so damned obsessed with being somewhere that makes it easy for them to get high. Oh, wait a minute, though. In my area, most of the potheads will be on public welfare because they won't be able to pass the drug test required to secure almost any of the few decent-paying jobs in the area.
