No Dope Disaster in Colorado

Looks like they are trying to legalize reefer in Arizona so the Phoenix New Times talked to Hickenlooper about Colorado's experience.

Of course, we know that one of the reasons a big-government, anti-gun, control freak like Hickenlooper has decided legalization wasn't all bad is the tax revenue pouring into the state coffers.  More money means more power for the politicians. I think I wrote about my colleague who lives in CO telling me that revenues have increased to the point where the state is being forced to refund the tax surplus.

I think it would be nice if all the states joined in telling the federal government to pound sand.  I have no interest in smoking dope or drinking perfectly legal alcohol.  I just know that Prohibition was a disaster, and the War on Drugs has been possibly a greater disaster. 

If the government wants to restrict something, government restrictions might be a good place to start. 


  1. The dead aren't lining the streets? How odd! Coulda sworn legalization would lead to that.

    You know, one could point out to an anti-gun, pro-reefer that legalization of weed didn't lead to chaos. You find an analogous situation when you legalize guns.

  2. States could be so helped by this revenue, hopefully they start seeing the money it is bringing CO
