The Attorney General(s) of Oklahoma and Kansas are suing the State of Colorado. The are also asking the Federal Government to step in and settle the dispute over pot once and for all.
There hasn’t been this much excitement in Denver, since the police arrested John Elway for being a slow moving white bronco during the OJ Simpson mess.
Kansas and Oklahoma are claiming that they have increased costs in law enforcement (policing automobile transportation of illegal substances) out of Colorado and want reimbursement from Colorado.
Basically they are saying that Pot Heads and Tweakers exiting the state are causing enforcement problems on all the exits from the state and the surrounding counties that border that state.
In layman’s terms it breaks down like this:
When a pothead is driving down a road he is driving about 20 mph and eating the upholstery.
They are easy to spot, even easier to apprehend.
Tweakers on the other hand, they are a little bit tougher. When a Tweeker is driving down a road he is driving about 200 mph, and talking to the upholstery.
So you can readily see where it would present some problems.
Personally, I don’t use the stuff. Used to, but there were the incidents associated with it (surfing on the coffee table in the TV room), police cars taking up all the parking on the street, the family cat in the dryer with no fabric softener.
Gee whiz, how long has it been?
Last time I was going to toke up, maybe thirty-years ago, was with a Mexican girl I met in a bar, when I asked her if she had any papers, she took off like a flash … Never saw her again.
But I digress, sorry.
Surrounding states as New Mexico, Texas, Utah and Wyoming are not involved at this time. While pot is legal in Colorado, Alaska, California and Washington State, under federal law pot is still illegal in most of the the country.
If the states cannot police themselves (as they are for the most part dysfunctional in nature) they understandably, want Washington D.C. to clean it up for them. This could present some first time problems for all of us.
Some of it good … Some of it bad.
Mass purchases of Twinkies or Ding Dongs at the Root N Scoot could constitute “a new probable cause” and random roadside searches could be the order of the day in the Oklahoma Panhandle.
If the whole world smoked a joint at the same time, there would be world peace for at least two hours. Most likely followed by a global food shortage.
Think about it.
The football players at one university in Colorado discover that another university in Kansas has steroids, and all they has is Hi-Fi’s … this is definitely going to be a problem.
Smoke ‘em if you got ‘em … When the Fed’s get their hands on this, Happy Hour will be over. None of it is going to be good.
You wait and see …
