Colorado Ski Resort Legalizes Marijuana

A Colorado ski resort is already being dubbed the "the Amsterdam of the Rockies" after legalizing marijuana in the mountain town of Breckenridge, Colorado. The law goes into effect on January 1, 2010.

Breckenridge should remember that Amsterdam has far more than marijuana available without penalty; hopefully they aren't looking at a "red light district," too.

Breckenridge voted last month to relax marijuana laws. Once the new laws go into effect, there will be no criminal or civil penalties for anyone carrying up to an ounce of marijuana. Apparatus (ahem) associated with pot, such as a bong will also be penalty-free.

However, the town of Breckenridge is not without caution. No skiing while stoned is still the rule, under a separate ordinance, and anyone found either using marijuana or skiing while under the influence will be severely punished. That includes, naturally, other types of intoxicants, such as alcohol.

Breckenridge is the second town in the U.S. to decriminalize marijuana. The other is another Colorado city, Denver. However, Breckenridge is the first in America to remove penalties for paraphernalia.

Still, it will remain illegal to buy, sell or grow pot and also to display or use it in public. That means that there will be no Amsterdam-style "coffee shops."

As marijuana is still banned under federal and state law, it is possible that authorities could crack down on its use in Breckenridge, but the Obama administration has already stated that as long as local and state ordinances are followed, it will not step in. It appears, also, that the state will not crack down either.

Being a top ski resort, Colorado ski resort must not take advantage by legalizing Marijuana. I condemn this move by them.

Museums are the main tourist attraction in Amsterdam. Everyone knows the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum and Stedelijk Museum, but it is much more. Amsterdam has over fifty museums which attract millions of visitors each year.

I think as cannabis and its cultivation are illegal in most parts of the world, considerable resources and effort are committed to both interdiction and counter-interdiction of cultivation.

Colorado, of course. But why didn't a music resort legalize it?

By the way it is illegal to purchase, possess, sell, transfer or consume any amount of cannabis in Sweden. If police suspect someone has consumed cannabis they could be ordered to take a drug test, which is seen as a way to prove consumption
