Get Yo' Smoke On
by Winston "Stone" Ford
You know I have to use the Denver motto “Mile High City” in a pun, so here goes: “Mile High” has a different meaning in Denver.
Voters in Denver have passed a measure that makes it legal for residents over the age of 21 to possess up to an ounce of marijuana.
Initiative 100 won by a margin of 53% to 46%.
Opponents have said that it will have no practical effect because it would be trumped by Colorado state law.
However, 9News political analyst Floyd Ciruli says it would send a powerful message to groups around the country working to decriminalize marijuana.
Puff puff, give! Puff puff, give!
