Sounds just a bit like Chicken Little don't you think?
The democratic process can be frustrating eh? http://www.steamboattoday.com/news/2011/apr/09/omar-m-campbell-lets-vote-pot/
The vote occured and i believe the "yes" vote was in the range of 72% within Steamboat.
It is impossible to argue that only "perverse" young liberals pushed the vote 32% above the 50% mark in this round of voting. I am sure it is a tough pill to swallow, but i am also sure you agree that a majority of that degree is simply undeniable.
only in a ski town
Joe the sky is not falling. I would bet both arms you will not see any change in your vacation environment so come and enjoy. We are a tourist town and value your patronage.
The other thing you have to wrap your head around is that this is a democracy and Amendment 64 was heavily voted in favor of in Routt county and in the state of Colorado as well. You are from Houston, Texas. This is a very conservative state and I can understand as i am from South Carolina, also a very "red" state. These issues have been so suppressed in these areas for so long that our parents likely taught us that weed is "the devil".
Relax and back away from the dramatics. When all is said and done if you don't have a good vacation on your next visit you will likely go elsewhere. That is your right. Come back and try your best not to carry a hyper aware sense of marijuana as this will skew your opinion. Approach it with the same mentality you have previously ("let's go rock some ski runs- adults only - and have a cold beer afterwards to reflect on the sweet turns we got in today") and i am sure you will have a great time.
TWO local breweries on the WEST SIDE. Am i dreaming???
More rhetoric.... you are a hyperbolic mess Omar. Polarizing articles such as this one are the very reason our congress can't get anything done.
Steamboat....home of the 12 dollar cheeseburger. I buy local when i can but not to my own economic detriment. Buy tires here at inflated prices (waka waka) or buy in Denver? Buy goods from Home Depot in Avon or get over charged at Ace? classic match up here in steamboat correct?
Nate.....haters gonna hate.......not to mention extrapolate ("I think", "probably", "soon enough".) Nice work Mr. Bird. I agree with your sentiment.
Old guy in the blue is to blame.....watch it a few times and it becomes apparent.
Mark you are a very paranoid person. Sound the alarms the government's coming to take your rights away! Put the bong down and go for a hike or a bike ride. You surely need some fresh air.
Gary if you want to see highway robbery check the prices at your jewelry store.
