Bureaucratic endorsement of Pot Tourism in Colorado -- a tragedy

Sadly bureaucrats from a state 'task force' endorsed 'pot tourism' in their state of Colorado yesterday, as reported by the Associated Press. Clearly the endorsement of this type of activity will have damaging consequences in other parts of the country as well. The report of the AP story was also reported on the popular web site (www.DrudgeReport.com) founded by Matt Drudge over 14 years ago.

Additionally it should be noted that last year Colorado became the first state where a major party (the Democrat party of Colorado) openly endorsed legalizing 'recreational pot' use (through and endorsed through a proposed ballot initiative).

Truly, it is a sad day in America where one state's official representative's openly encourage tourists to use a drug that is illegal in neighboring states. Certainly, this type of irresponsible promotion goes against the general goodwill that most have between each other. It should be noted that there are people in neighboring states that are fearful that marijuana growers in Colorado will now try to export their drug (pot) into neighboring states (that include Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, New Mexico, Utah and Oklahoma). Advocates against Colorado's new law endorsing pot use are concerned about the potential harm that pot use could bring to the general population, as well. It's no wonder that pro-pot forces in the mid-west are giddy about the newly passed ballot initiative in Colorado that legalized recreational marijuana.

Right now it is critical that more people educate themselves about the dangers of using pot. Ignoring the drug epidemic that effects most communities across America is not the right thing to do. It is important for everyone to educate themselves about the dangers of the prolong use of pot.
