I think this was the purpose of this thread. When CO and WA legalized these wing nuts flipped out condemning these states yelling how they would never visit these places.

For me, this just gives me more of an incentive to come visit CO (again) and WA (for the first time).

One big problem for Coloradans is if they leave the state with one of those pretty green mountain top license plates on their car they get profiled and pulled over in states like Nebraska, Kansas, Wyoming, and Utah (New Mexico cops have other things to worry about).

Are Colorado drivers profiled for pot by law enforcement in other states? - 7NEWS Denver TheDenverChannel.com

People who disagree with legalized pot are not "closed-minded" ... HAHA. Who just throws that phrase around anymore?

I would imagine it's the non-CO plates leaving CO that would get pulled over most.

There is no logical reason to be against legalization. Especially when the economic and humane benefits come into play.

In all fairness, there is one logical reason, or, uh... excuse: ignorance. That, and a general puritanical prejudice towards Marijuana, and the preconception that all users are inherently drugged-out criminal deviants. Few detractors/opponents will admit to this way of thinking, but it shows.

Meanwhile, their continued support of prohibition keeps the REAL criminals, like the cartels, empowered and in business.

Ignorance is not as excuse, per Roger Goodell.

The last part is very true. It's as if no one paid attention to alcohol prohibition and the repeal of the 18th and the effects it had on crime in the US.

I was being sarcastic. Ignorance is ignorance, but people always make excuses for their ignorance.

I'm sorry... what? Where are all these people moving to Colorado for the weed? Why move for something you can get pretty readily (and cheaper) anywhere else? I lived in the middle of the Mississippi swap country and never had a problem getting it, so I don't see how Amendment 64 is going to prompt people to move when there's really no benefit to it. Employers can still implement zero tolerance policies (and they do), military personnel and DoD civilians subject to UCMJ will still be prosecuted for it, as will CDL holders and anyone else in a federally regulated safety sensitive job function IAW CFR 49, and it's more expensive, to boot.
If anyone actually is moving here for the weed, they're going to end up a bit on the disappointed side.

I know a kid who did just that. But he's a bum.
