I came across this in another forum and thought that it would be fun to share it with the folks here as well:

3. A pass does not involve a football or dating.

4. The top of your head is bald, but you still have a pony tail.

5. Smoking marijuana is not a crime, everyone does it.
To which I added -

LOL! Pretty right on about Colorado. Someone wanted cities, so I'll do the update on Denver where...

1. You can rent your very own efficiency apartment for a mere $3,000.00/mo in a brand new neighborhood half way to Kansas. But that's fine by you since recreational pot is now legal.

2. It takes at least 6 hours on heavily congested roads to drive to Vail for a weekend ski trip and you don't count the additional 6 hours you were stuck in the Eisenhower Tunnel on I-70 waiting for them to clear a jack-knifed truck off Vail Pass because that's just fine by you since recreational pot is now legal.

3. Granola is now in high school and when you stop in after school to pick her up, her friends tell you that she has run away to Aspen with her ski bum of a BF to "find herself" which is just fine by you since recreational pot is now legal.

4. You cover your car with "Hillary!" and "Feel the Bern!" stickers, so nobody will notice it's a lousy $500 bucket of bolts and you're fine with that since now that recreational pot is legal, you're too stoned to do much driving, anyhow.

Retire to Colorado, everyone, so you can join us in visualizing whirled peas or whirled whatever you want since - well, you know!

I was never much of a John Denver fan although not because I was worried he was a drug pusher. I vote for "Colorado" by Chuck Pyle (just a pretty song) for our co-state song along with "Don't Bogart that Joint."

New co-State Song (no pun intended):
