Today, as you heard, Colorado became the first US state to correct the heinous 80-year problem with stupid marijuana laws.
"A thing of beauty!"For those who don't know, an eighth is 3.5 gram, as indicated in the pic at the top of my post. Just more than a few crumbs, but people bought it openly without fear of reprisals from the police.
Linda Andrews, owner of LoDo Wellness at 16th and Wazee streets, arrived about 6 a.m. to just one person in line, a 24-year-old from Chandler, Texas. By 7:30 a.m., there were about 15 people. And by 11 a.m. a line of more than 600 had formed around the block for a three-hour wait.
"I expected there to be a morning rush, and I thought we'd quiet down," Andrews said. "I had no idea."
The first customers could buy as much as they wanted, but the business started imposing limits within the first two hours, concerned about short supply. By noon, customers could buy an eighth.
This is what Democracy looks like.
