They could put two cones out, spaced to resemble a typical parking space, and then have the suspected intoxicated driver do a simple parallel parking maneuver without even having to worry about hitting the curb. I imagine that the thought of doing this strikes terror into the heart of many sober drivers!

There are several directories of mmj dispensaries. none of them look to be the most comprehensive or easiest to use. just google "colorado medical marijuana directory".

it may be more important to locate communities that WANT more cannabis residents.
obviously the chambers of commerce want growth, but not necessarily that kind of growth. frequently the citizens don't want ANY growth. there are no in-migration controls, as such. Counties, cities, and towns have to use other methods to attract, or repel, newcomers.

But suppose it's on a rural two lane CO highway and not in a town where there are curbs? I spent the last week in Durango driving back starting monday. Once I got out of the town of Durango, I didn't see a curb again for 5-1/2 hrs until I got to my brother's in Colo Spgs. I just think it's a tough one CW.

i would agree except for the reluctance their city council is showing for that distinction. looks like the community "leaders" are not quite in tune with
the residents - a problem that might be corrected in the round of elections.

the ski resorts want the tourism, but not new residents so much.
cannabis shops will like doing business in all that affluence.
few locals can afford to do anything but commute into and out of resorts.
would surrounding towns like to see growth?

think about the casino towns. they were dying into ghost towns until
the gamblers came. of course, they may not be too happy with the results.
are there any dying towns around these days that might want an economic boost?
will casino towns encourage cannabis business?

how about the highest poverty rate towns? looks like they are in the south and
southeast, ominously close to OK, TX and NM "diversion" outlets. the state
might not allow recreational use there.

the biggest cities have plenty of mmj dispensaries and are used to high growth
rates, so this may just fuel the front-range megaplex fever even more.
convenient for those who favor mass transit (no duid) and good healthcare.
why no front-range casinos, i wonder?

i've seen a few articles about communities still caught up in reefer madness
propaganda and stoner stereotypes (Greenwood Village comes to mind). they even fear an influx of cartels!

HP did you see that story on 9 news a few weeks back, they caught a large shipment of weed just as it crossed the Kansas border. Makes sense why grow and risk getting robbed just buy legal on the cheap and sell illegal for profit in neighboring state.

there will be some who will game the system and risk running the border gauntlets. experienced smugglers will get through as usual, amateurs will get caught. we'll only hear about the amateurs. many more will just grow a lot and give it away. at first, the stores will run out of supply quickly, with long lines at the doors. eventually, demand/supply will stabilize and prices will drop. it's all just guesses, of course, but fun to ponder.

in the old days, texas users considered kansas-grown cannabis to be much better than mexican brick weed. the stuff flows in all directions across every border at all times. its a wonder that seeds aren't spread and scattered so it grows wild along every fence-line.

Anyone know much about Peyton and the surrounding area? I've just noticed there are places for sale there with a good amount of land 40+ acres for fairly cheap. Is the land there horrible for anything as far as living/growing even lawn grass? Just trying to figure out why things there are so cheap. I doubt I would find a job there, but I have no problem driving up to 2 hours one way to get to work. As far as MJ goes I know it is in a county that has the 2nd most medical grows in the state. It is a good ways from Nederland, but from what I have seen much cheaper to live there.

The cost of commuting 2 hrs EACH way would quickly wipe out any savings you might obtain from buying cheap land in the boonies, and the drive itself would likely get old on the second or third day.
