While the existing data is probably slightly skewed by those who prefer to avoid legal and professional consequences for their herbal recreation, no rational person should believe this matters that much.

Of the minority percentage of Americans who are admitted or believed to be avid pot smokers, it is ridiculous to think that a significant enough number of that minority are so engaged in and dependent upon their vice as to make or break tourism travel decisions based up favorable pot laws, and that if they did, it could be so much as to actually matter in any real way to anyone's bottom line locally.

Unless of course you sell weed. Or run a head shop. Or sell snacks.

Any ill-conceived, weed-enhanced master plan or fantasy to ever turn Kentucky into some sort of hillbilly version of Amsterdam, just to attract a few pennies more in tourism from a handful of potheads - especially given the extremely conservative populace of Kentucky and the representatives they tend to elect - will burn out faster than a loose pinter burning in the wind.

You folks really should take an unaltered, clear gander at reality from time to time.

You could not be more wrong. Look up for yourself why Kentucky has a no helmet required law. Because of the millions we were losing in tourism dollars because bikers would not come here. It is all documented.

And the marijuana population is 100 times larger in number than the biker people.

Now while you are learning, look up Washington States hemp festival. Last year they had 254000 plus people in attendance that all paid 20 dollars each day to enter the park, times the three days of it. I guarantee you the motels there are booked full for 10 years in advance. Plus all those people gotta eat.

The people here better stop thinking about a growing problem with the minds of a corn fed inbred fools, and start learning the real truth instead of the lies they have been told..

Weed won't save KY's economics, or much else.

Tourism here is hurting not due to the allowance or disallowance of your little herb, but due to a national decline in recreational spending due to the recession. Resilient Summer "Laker" tourism on Cumberland, Laurel and our Western lakes, and those visiting our horse country, historical landmarks, distilleries, and places of natural beauty make up the bulk of KY tourism dollars, and are largely visited by families and retirees, not stoners.

Again, potheads like to overstate the value of their herb, economically, medically, and in any other regard that may benefit their habit, rather than accepting that it's not something that will miraculously do anything for anyone in any of these ways, and that the non-users who make up the vast majority of the voting populace actually don't give a shit.

The only merit of this argument is that it's transparent, ridiculous, and therefore quite amusing to those of us who don't get high or care to. And we are the overwhelming and unarguable majority, with the most to gain or lose economically. Our votes have already spoken, as have or state representatives.

So bitch s'more. Or just move to a more stoner-friendly locale. You won't be any more heeded or missed than your proposed stoner tourists' meager dollars - that which they haven't spent on drugs, of course.

You'd be surprised of the people in this city that smoke it all the time. It's not like they can come right out and tell everybody for obvious reasons. This myth that all people that smoke it are lazy and won't work went out in the 60's.

You actually speak like you are intelligent, so I ask that you consider this.

At your leisure Google "Washington State Hempfest", and you can read about their yearly festival where marijuana is legal to smoke and sell and trade. It has been held on the third weekend in August for the last 18 years. Last years to get in the gate was 20 dollars each day for the three days of the festival.

Read carefully... They average 250,000 tourist each year and have every year since it's inception 22 years ago.

So 250,000 people all paying 20 dollars each day????

20 x 3 = 60 x 250,000 = 15,000,000 Yep that Fifteen Million Dollars in three days, but those Stoners as you attempted to insult them with. Stoners were a product of the 60's. Marijuana users of today are called Doctors, Lawyers, Judges, Police, Teachers, and the list goes on and on and on.

here is some information for you to read... that is if you're not too stoned to understnad it....its a ralley. a politcal ralley. not leagel to smoke, trade, buy, or sell.

YOU ARE A COMPLETE DUMBASS!!!!!

Seattle Hempfest is an annual event in Seattle, Washington, the world's largest annual gathering advocating decriminalization of marijuana. Founded in 1991 as the Washington Hemp Expo, a self-described "humble gathering of stoners" attended by only 500 people, and renamed the following year as Hempfest, it has grown into a 3-day annual political rally, concert, and arts and crafts fair[5] with attendance typically over 250,000. Speakers have included Seattle city council member Nick Licata, actor/activist Woody Harrelson (2004),[4] travel writer and TV host Rick Steves (2007),(2010)[4][6] former Dallas Cowboys center Mark Stepnoski (2003),[4][7] and former chief of the Seattle Police Department Norm Stamper (2006).[3] Hempfest has also in recent years attracted such well-known performers as Fishbone (2002),[8] The Kottonmouth Kings (2004),[9] Rehab (2006),[10] and Pato Banton (2007)[11] to its five stages[12] spread throughout Myrtle Edwards Park and Elliott Bay Park, on Seattle's waterfront.[12][13]

2011 Hempfest speakers included numerous elected officials, among them Ohio congressman Dennis Kucinich, Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn, City Attorney Pete Holmes, a return by Councilman Licata, and Washington State Representatives Mary Lou Dickerson and Roger Goodman.[14]

Early Hempfests "featured blatant marijuana smoking";[3] 60 people were cited for illegal marijuana use at the 1997 Hempfest.
