When "the big one" hits and washes California into the sea, is there any chance it could take Colorado with it?

Colorado was a great state until the liberals all decided to move there to save the environment /s.  My husband was born there and his family went back to settlers in SW Colorado... The old-timers have not been pleased with the changes to their state.

Surely no one is surprised by this!  There are going to be more little ones going to the ERs, unless their parents have Obamacare in which case they won't be able to afford it.

I'm a "live and let live" kinda guy and find it difficult to square love of freedom with some of our drug laws.  However, I think that society will come to regret that we pretended that all of the problems associated with drugs will be lessened if we decriminalize or legalize them.  Maybe some problems will go away but they'll be replaced by others.  Unfortunately, it looks like the most innocent among us will face some of those new problems.

Where are the hysterical calls to ban assault brownies, high capacity bongs, and semi automatic cookies? It's for the children, dontcha know.

Since Colorado has the highest average altitude of the 50 states, it will take a lot to wash it into the sea.

I personally don't object to letting adults use pot, or alcohol. It is called personal freedom, which "conservatives" once purported to support.

We need harsher laws for crimes committed, on and off drugs, but not for being on the drugs. That will free up space in prisons.

The problems the day after pot was decriminalized in Colorado, were there the day before too. I think the number of people that decided to start using because of legalization is tiny, tiny.
