Crowds Flock to Legal Marijuana Stores in Colo.

January 02, 2014  | 

In a historic swirl of commerce and cannabis, the world's first stores licensed to sell marijuana legally to anyone 21 or older opened in Colorado on Wednesday, the Denver Post reports.

From Telluride to Denver, thousands of people cheerfully stood in lines for hours to buy legal marijuana after presenting nothing more than identification.

Marijuana activists hailed the day as a watershed in their effort to overturn anti-cannabis laws. Store owners — several of whom said the turnout exceeded even their own ambitious expectations — feared running out of supply.

Police reported no problems with the crowds, and government officials marveled at the calm.

Who writes this stuff anyway? just exactly who are these "government officials" are they "top men" "G" men, revenuers? are the government social workers, welfare workers, are they from the pentagon, military. just who are the governmental workers that are so marveled and overcome by joy at a bunch of people standing in line "for hours" so they can buy marijuana? Wonder if they would be just as overcome with marvel and amazement if these same people were to stand in line for hours trying to get a job?????

Does anyone know if I can get my marijuana cost covered under Obamacare?

Chuck, Chuck, Chuck, you are SOOO naive. They are people with serious medical conditions that need treatment. It's called Ineedus tobe stoneus, a condition that prevents them from getting a job.
