The Legalization of Marijuana in Colorado: The Impact

Good day!

I wanted to share with you and impact study that was done by The Rocky Mountain High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area of Colorado and released in September of 2016.   This information came my way recently byway of local law enforcement.  During my conversation with the officer I found my self sympathizing with the plight of the peace officer in their daily struggles to maintain peace and order especially when it comes to outsiders coming to the Central Coast for some R n R.

I'm going to be the first to point out that this contradicts what the Healthy Kids Colorado Survey of 2015 indicates about use among the youth. Nonetheless in order to be as balanced as Fox News, we report, you decide.

It is, however, critical to note that policy makers get most of their insight from local law enforcement.  What well behaved board of supervisors or city council would go against the advice of local law enforcement?

    The Rocky Mountain High Intensity Drug Traffic Area, a collaboration of federal, state and local drug enforcement agencies with the aim of encouraging prohibition and limiting legalization. They put out these biased reports in the hopes that policy makers will base their “facts” off of their biased statistics.

    We would agree that the RMHIDTA is about as balanced as Fox news – which is a far cry from unbiased reporting.

    We hope that the points highlighted in this article will be brought up by our informed cannabis community anytime the RMHIDTA report is mentioned: http://www.factcheck.org/2016/08/unpacking-pots-impact-in-colorado/
