    Dude move to Colorado. Ganja is everywhere. 180 stores in Denver alone. Peoples backyards are filled with it. Massive warehouses dot the roadways growing it. Pull up to some traffic lights and it’s pungent odor fills up your ride. It’s crazy. And no hassle by the law.

    Breaking the law is not a good idea. But, it will be legalized in Iowa. Just as alcohol, gambling, and guns are now. There are those that will try and stop it and they will lose…again.

        It appears San Francisco is going to expunge past pot convictions of ten of thousands of people and wipe their record clean. Which seems kind of strange. As for Colorado’s finest their 100% on board with implementing the legalization process and are setting the benchmark of things to come.

            Numerous stories of people tailgating outside Bronco games who smoke the pot and Colorado’s finest will tell you to put it out. Same goes outside of bars. No throwing you to the ground, cuffing, and hauling you off to jail. Simple ticket at worst and FREE to go.
