Breckenridge Colorado Voters Legalize Marijuana and Paraphernalia

Breckenridge Colorado Voters Legalize Marijuana and Paraphernalia


Voters in the ski resort town of Breckenridge, Colorado legalized marijuana and marijuana paraphernalia by a nearly three-to-one margin on Tuesday.

It is the first municipality in the United States to allow paraphernalia, such as pipes, bongs and bubblers.

"[The measure] passed 73 percent to 27 percent," ABC 7 News in Denver reported.

"'This votes demonstrates that Breckenridge citizens overwhelmingly believe that adults should not be punished for making the safer choice to use marijuana instead of alcohol,' said Sean McAllister, a Breckenridge attorney who proposed the ordinance," ABC continued.

"Possession remains illegal under state law, but Breckenridge Police Chief Rick Holman said his department will 'still have the ability to exercise discretion,'" Colorado's Summit Daily News added.
Story continues below...

β€œIt's never been something that we've spent a lot of time on, so I don't expect this to be a big change in how we really do business,” he said, according to the Daily News.

"It will not make it more available to minors, won't make it legal to smoke it on the street, won't get you out of trouble if you're stoned behind the wheel," the Daily News opined in an editorial supporting the measure. "What it says is that if you, as an adult, choose to possess small amounts of marijuana for personal use, you won't be busted for it. It's still a much more stringent law than those that apply to alcohol β€” a substance you can own as much as you want of and consume in public."

The paper added: "Eventually, it seems these small possession busts will be a thing of the past state-wide, which makes us conclude some kind of 'nuisance pot smoke' ordinance needs to take their place β€” roughly analogous to public intoxication statutes."

In Breckenridge, which has about 3,300 registered voters, passage of the measure is not a surprise. While an effort to legalize marijuana state-wide failed during the 2006 elections, Breckenridge voters supported it by a margin of nearly 3-to-1. Additionally, the petition to levy a ballot measure that would legalize marijuana needed just under 500 signatures, but organizers collected over 1,400.

I love that they are calling it "legalize."

Guys, I've been saying this for the past 4 years. Legalization will come in Obama's second term (2012-2016). I'm betting the first state to legalize will be California, and I'm betting it's going to happen closer to 2012 than 2016.

Bookmarked for future use so I can shove it in all of your faces when it happens.

I was actually looking for a city in Colorado to move to, besides Denver since it sucks. I guess I know where I am going now, I just don't see how views can be so different when I am only a state over. That law would NEVER get passed here unless Federal law changed.

The way things are going now, I don't see Obama getting elected again. Just look at the recent elections. New Jersey voted out the incumbent (democratic) and put in a republican. Also Virginia (historically democratic) voted in a republican. America seems it is not happy with democrats at the moment.

I know, off topic. Why is it that I have not heard anything on the news about this "legalization"? I haven't even seen anything on the hearings in California to legalize marijuana completely.

too bad stoners will be distracted from the whole bad economy/Federal Reserve issue thing and think Obama is "the shit" for allowing states the right to make drug laws. Though, that is a step in a good direction...LESS GOVERNMENT

Dont be an idiot, just because a certain party wins a certain election doesn't mean it will correlate to the race for the white house.

Nah, no one really bugs you on the mountain. Or at least the places i ride. Everyone tokes up...Blunts all around in the parking lot at lunch, smoking bowls on the lift or in the gondola, joints while riding...The smell of bud wafts in the air
