legal weed stores open in Colorado tomorrow, complete with budtenders ready to serve. no permits, medical slips, nothing, just be 21 and you're good to go. damn, i wish that was here in NC. ironically, everywhere i've ever lived now has some form of legalization - California, Washington, NJ....except where am right now :-(Now, after a long and often contentious political process, Colorado has at last fully licensed 136 marijuana retailers, 178 cultivation facilities, 31 infused-product manufacturers (who make everything from cannabis chocolates to BHO), and three laboratories charged with testing all of these intoxicants for potency and potential contamination.
The first of these stores will open in less than 24 hours, and naturally I'll be there, cash in hand, and most likely a tear in my eye. Even if it means standing in line for hours in the freezing cold.
oh well, the tide is turning and once the states get a taste of the cash, there will be no going back - just like gambling. NC will probably be last - hope i live to see it.
