Oh to be in Colorado

I see quite a few news items about the ‘Green Mile’ in Denver.. & I just think “Oh, to be in Colorado.. at 420” (Rocky mountain high).. I do hear there is a problem with ‘public smoking facilities’ though. Maybe they should adopt the dutch model too.

I visited Amsterdam in 2002.. an amazing few days: went to a few ‘coffeeshops’ BUT I thought it was ‘LEGAL in Holland’ it is not. They have a policy of turning a blind eye; In the coffeeshops you can buy up to 5 grams of cannabis. BUT it is actually still illegal to grow it commercially & to transport it to the coffeeshops. Nor can you just smoke it in public (unless the mgmt./council agree)

Whilst here in Aotearoa/NZ we still only get illegal/black-market cannabis ! Whilst its true the arrest rate for small possession has decreased. It is still effectively ‘Zero-tolerance’. The black-market ‘Rulez the skool’ 😦

“oh how sad…” 😦

I always did like that John Denver (Duchendorff) song:

the Colorado rocky mountain high
I’ve seen it raining fire in the sky
Friends around the campfire
& Everybody’s HIGH.. Rocky mountain high: in Colorado 🙂

btw; I hear the first ‘criminal dealing arrest was in Colorado 1930s ?’

“kia ora John Lord”
