It’s always about the money

Marijuana legalization may be repealed in Colorado if taxes aren’t approved by voters.

Personally, I’m in favor of the repeal. I’m not particularly anti-marijuana. I wouldn’t mind if it was eventually decriminalized in an orderly fashion with taxes already in place, after fifteen or twenty other states had decriminalized it. The problem I have is that I’m encountering a number of people who moved to Colorado or plan to move to Colorado solely because they can smoke weed, and I’m encountering it more and more in situations where I’m on a family outing, kids in tow, and someone is lighting up within nose-shot. Maybe this jackassery is due to the newness of decriminalization and that eventually things will settle down, but given that weed seems to appeal to young counterculture and your typical young counterculturist doesn’t give a rat’s ass about anyone but themselves, I’m not hopeful.
