Colorado’s marijuana legalization effort has been a success by every measure. Teen marijuana use is down in Colorado, traffic fatalities on Colorado roads are at an all time low, tax revenues are being generated daily, and jobs are being created. So much for the sky falling, as predicted by many marijuana opponents. However, all that is outweighed by the dangers of marijuana according to Colorado Gubernatorial candidate Bob Beauprez. Per 9 News:

Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) and former GOP Congressman Bob Beauprez faced tough questions during Thursday’s gubernatorial debate.

Whether marijuana legalization should be repealed in Colorado came up, with Hickenlooper saying it would be premature to put the question to voters.

Instead, Hickenlooper said the state should tightly regulate the drug and prevent underage use. Beauprez says Colorado voters should be asked to consider a repeal, citing the possible negative effects on developing brains.

Apparently Bob Beauprez is not a fan of democracy. Why else would he want to repeal marijuana legalization, which Colorado voters clearly want proven by the fact that they voted for it two years ago? Mr. Beauprez, Colorado voters were asked about marijuana legalization already, and they clearly wanted it. So why are you still pushing for prohibition?

  1. While we are dispelling wrong thoughts, why would you fallaciously poison the well by suggesting that Republicans are ignorant Old Testament morons who cannot fathom evolution or time/ space? There are many…Right leaning libertarians who accept science and have faith.
    The founders were the architects we follow. The TEA movement owns the game of changing minds and policy now.We do not fear hemp. We want everyone to be free to be and do what they want. We are not always thrilled by the result, but we are not here to stifle anyone. Democrats lost liberalism when they went PC and started pitting special groups against one another(war on women, blacks, gays, hispanics, illegals…).
    The unions who supported this silliness are not impressed. Blacks are waking up to their enslavement by welfare. Hispanics want illegal immigration stopped. The Dems want control of education so they can dumb down their future robots with common core. They want to alter the Bill of Rights. No good argument needed. Just scare the idiots into giving up their inherent right to keep and bear arms. All such movements end in a totalitarian nightmare. Please argue that if you dare. I posit that you do not know which side of the fence you are grazing on. The old way is changing, so pop your head out and realize the new paradigm around you. Both parties are in metamorphosis, the established must give way or be left behind. It is why we are disliked by both sides. Fear is ignorance, Dave

  2. People don’t understand the late effects of Polio either. I’ve had to educate doctors. Ritalin works for me. I’m glad it worked for you albeit for a different diagnosis.

  3. heitman, I believe we agree with one another more than not. I do believe the ACA is working although I do wish Medicare had been expanded to include all Americans. However, America is no longer the cohesive nation it once was. Take care.

  4. Interesting point you raise. How would you compare and contrast the Roman/French experience with the coming French/Muslim era? That will be a similar story according to the Imams. I hear they are already staking out bridges for renaming on the seine.

    Regarding Obola Care, it is not going well at all. The plan is to collapse our H.C industry and go single payer when there is no market alternative. It won’t withstand any competition and the Planners know that, David. The lack of competitive pricing will mean only one thing, monopoly of Government. That will lead to corruption and a new unpredicted cost spiral. Then comes the rationing and third party end of life panels. Rosy, ain’t it?

  5. Makes my point. They spend like we should. Self interest is not a crime, if you are self supporting.
    Have you noticed the French are kind of snooty about all things Francais, non?

  6. For Coloradoan’s my question is this: what happens if this Beauprez dude wins ? A State Governor has a substantial influence over political policy. Is repeal accomplished by a vote in the State legislature? Or, can this guy, once elected, just go rouge? Just curious. Thanks.

  7. Yes let’s be. I see everyone talking about how much sales are up and stuff. I don’t use marijuana but let’s face the facts. Across America the economy is not where it should be. Legalizing marijuana promotes jobs. The more people working the more taxes are collected. So there not just getting taxes on the sale of marijuana they also collecting taxes on what the people that are now working legitimate businesses.

  8. …All the way to the poor house. Without American money the Europeon socialist experiment would have collapsed in infancy. It is failing economically right now. The Euro bank system is going to admit deep problems very soon. Economic activity is not sustaining the nanny states. Obama Care is also rotting from within. It will be obvious to all within a couple of years. Capitalism, though flawed, seeks efficiency and that is achieved through competition. Government fails to be competitive at any level.
    The reality may lead to a new system, but without any help Obama care will lead to massive cost increases that would embarress any CEO of a for profit H.C. Co.
    Drug laws are a poor place for your injected screed. I agree with Mr. Frakes.

  9. I’m glad you could find another way. Everyone’s health is different. I to love cannabis . And I’ve stopped taking prescription pain killers for honey hash oil but now having Post Polio Syndrome nothing works as well for me as Ritalin

  10. So you support a personhood amendment ? No equal pay for equal work for women? Killing off food stamps for the poor? Gutting the EPA ? The elimination of The Department of Education? Harsher drug sentencing for drugs other than marijuana ? More war? Paul is a Republican no matter what he’s calling himself this week. He’s also against gay marriage. And Paul supports resending the Civil Rights Act of 1964. He
    supports the Republican/ Tea-party platform. You might want to take off your rose colored glasses and at least clean them.

  11. They do this in Oklahoma City too. Except it’s on John’s perusing women for sex in city parks. But filming cannabis buyers? That’s nuts.

  12. The opposition use’s one word: “children” to scare voter’s and sadly, it appears to be work on many younger voters.
