The great green experiment underway in Colorado is continuing to yield considerable results after five full months of marijuana legalization, according to the latest statistics out of the first state in America to lift the prohibition on pot.

Crime in Colorado’s capital city, Denver, has dropped by more than a tenth, local law enforcement data reveals, and the state as a whole is expected to collect around $30 million in revenue this year as a result of weed taxes.

Crime is down because a majority of the crimes people were arrested for were trumped up bullshit weed laws being broken. Make weed legal and those crimes disappear and you make huge profits on top of it... who the fuck is stupid enough to believe that marijuana should not be made legal.

For those who want a scenic view, it's the one in CO that kitchen nightmares they do this season. Not quite Aurora, but close.
