SO you send people down the icy canyons? Does anyone care about actual safety? Or is this just a big feel good way for these folks to obfuscate from important matters?
Look.. don't hurt people.. let them have some local access.. stop the nonsense.
I grew up and went to school in Estes Park in the 70's.. One thing Estes has is a lot of grass.. how about quitt feeding the black market and trying to hurt people by forcing them into dangerous driving conditions (or even crowding the 34 or 36 in Peak Season,.. who needs the extra traffic.. it isn't efficient, it isn't smart.
This marijuana thing is going to happen.. do you set things up where it helps people not get hurt, or do you try and hurt them in 'spite'.. seriously.. think about it.

I think that if a town prohibits the retail sale of cannabis then they should also not be able to take advantage of the guaranteed $40,000,000 for public schools. Why should they be allowed to benefit from tourists, locals, enthusiasts, etc. who are wanting to legally buy cannabis if they prohibit retail stores and clubs?

I live in Estes, and do not want to see a ban on retail outlets for cannabis here. The sales tax revenue will be enormous! Don't turn that down. Points made above regarding local access, safe passage through the canyon, etc are valid as well. Get with the times, be innovative, don't stay stuck in the past. The tourists have been asking for it already, even little old ladies from Dallas who want to see if it works for their arthritis. The people voted for this!!!!!

Please go voice your concerns at the city meetings. Write letters to the editor! Do anything you can so that the will of the people will be enforced.
