Plans to ban tourists from smoking weed in Netherlands nixed


New government will allow cities to decide wether they want to keep foreigners from smoking. So in effect, it will still be available in Amsterdam.

1. Why do you go to Disney? To meet Mickey Mouse
2. Why do you go to the Zoo? To see the animals.
3. Why do you go to Amsterdam? To get HIGH!

Mess up one of these and the equilibrium of the universe will be unstable..then gentlemen, life as we know it will cease to exist.

I anticipate Colorado to legalize this election. You can drive here.

Especially since they built that 45 million dollar facility. Sort of cocky aren't they? I also am betting on this. Bought tons of HEMP and RFMK from the OTC pinks because of this. To my understanding, 8 states in the ballots for Medical, and three for recreational use?

If weed becomes legal in Colorado, do you think it will boost tourism? Yesterday, I voted yes on Amendment 64 to the Colorado constitution.

Saw a new recent poll that still shows WA/CO voters 50%+ in favor and the opposite for OR. Believe you me, I'll be driving to WA

My dad will get more visits out of me too, he lives in Denver and has 3 dispensaries within a 1/4 mile of his place.

I go to LSU but my legal residence is in Colorado, so I'm registered to vote there.

I think it will. Think about how many people who like to smoke, or want to, yet live in a draconian state regarding its laws and don't have great access to good weed. Throw in an awesome state and boom, people will want to come.

HEMP


This is the best part about Colo. legalizing it.

It opens the possibility to use hemp for clothes, oils, building materials, rope, etc....

Its cheaper than trees, easier to grow, easier to harvest, and in many cases stronger than the products made from trees.

Its fun to talk about getting to smoke pot legally, but the availability of hemp products into the open market is the biggest upside.

ETA: many products made from petroleum (i.e. plastic) can be made from hemp oil.

There's a great story by a former police chief regarding prohibition in the same paper.

So many people in Colorado smoke weed though already. A 20 year old who is caught drinking faces a harsher punishment than a 20 year old smoking weed. Might as well make it legal and tax it.

it's not legal. still breaking federal controlled substances act

if feds decided to cut state funding based on enforcement of weed, the tone in CO would change tomorrow
