This November the voters in Colorado will be asked to make a decision concerning the legalization of marijuana. This constitutional amendment would make Colorado the first and only state to do this. I want you to imagine Colorado with legalized recreational marijuana and the people this will attract who openly smoke local legally grown pot.
As sheriff, I believe that the increase in criminal activity will be significant. I also believe that taking into consideration recent and past elections, the voters of Montezuma County concur, legalizing marijuana in any form is not in our or our youth’s best interest.
