Quick to respond to Colorado apropos a initial state to exercise authorised pot sales, CNBC dispatched maestro newsman Harry Smith to a Centennial State for an hour-long demeanour during a new sepulchral pot economy.
Marijuana in America: Colorado Pot Rush, that front Feb. 26 during 10 pm ET on CNBC, takes a approaching discuss of sell shops, grow-ops and food factories. But Smith, who says he hasn’t “touched pot in decades,” digs deeper.
A shred (see shave below) comparing adjacent cities, Greeley and Garden City, is quite informative. While Greeley stays mired in a past, Garden City is embracing a new law that ratified pot in a state in 2012, anticipating it will reanimate a Northern Colorado city of reduction than 500 residents.
Even some-more engaging is a discuss Smith ignites between Gov. John Hickenlooper, who against Amendment 64, and Mason Tvert, a amendment’s arch architect.
Hickenlooper: “You don’t wish your state to go it alone and do something that’s never been finished before and immediately turn a boundary of late-night comedians on TV.”
Tvert: “We’re going to see other states stability to adopt these laws. When a sovereign supervision decides to follow is a large question. But a writing’s on a wall.”
For his part, Smith opines, “One edible, one joint, one fog smoke during a time, pot is relocating toward a mainstream.” And: “To a dismay of some and to a pleasure of others, pot has crossed a threshold of acceptability.”
