The Colorado Territory became the 38th State of the Union on August 1, 1876 — 141 years ago today. In the state, it’s “Colorado Day”.
The meme is in recognition of Colorado being the first state to legalize marijuana for all three sectors: medicinal (2000), industrial (2013), and recreational (2014). Pot is highly taxed, and millions from that tax income goes to medical research and refurbishing schools. We have not had major increases in people being stoned in public, despite fake news reports to the contrary.
But me? I drink coffee. I’ve never used any form of marijuana.
