Well because it seems to me the entire planet wants to move to Colorado, the huge 420 festival in Denver gets national if not worldwide attention. Ski resorts, Telluride, Aspen...

Drug related traffic fatalities are in the increase, transients everyplace, kids overdosing. Yea us.

Heroin probably. It's the scourge of I-25.

Oregon is offering no sales tax until the new year, so perhaps that is important.
Per capita, I think Oregon will do more pot sales than both Colorado and Washington.

Colorado still has a very strong socially conservative contingent of its population that is probably a bit stronger (or at least more obnoxious and/or better-funded) than that which exists in WA, OR, D.C. or even AK.

The anti-pot garbage I see coming out of CO Springs-based media is even finding its way to Montana, where we may have a legalization initiative in 2016, right alongside another (right-wing-billionaire-funded) initiative to ban its use completely in accordance with federal law, scrapping even the medical marijuana program.

Anyway, could I have heard something, a little while back now, that some "pro-family" organization is filing lawsuits against pot distributors under the RICO statutes? Anything come of that yet, I wonder...

I've seen and heard some stories of the states that neighbor Colorado not being too happy with the pot laws there. Most of Colorado's neighboring states seem to be more conservative overall when it comes to pot.

(BTW the states that border Colorado are Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and a corner of Arizona.)

Yes, I also remember something about Oklahoma and Nebraska (or maybe it was Kansas) pursuing a federal lawsuit against the state of CO for creating, I think it was phrased, an "interstate nuisance" with its marijuana sales.

Interesting, huh? I wonder what kind of precedent a successful lawsuit like that could set for, say, New York, California, New Jersey, Connecticut, etc., if they decide that another state's lenient laws overseeing firearm sales create an "interstate nuisance".

It's scary how stupid people can be...

Yes. Nebraska and Oklahoma are suing Colorado in federal court.
