Voters’ voices heard in small mountain town about marijuana.

Posted on: April 8, 2011

Living in a small mountain Colorado town, you would expect people to be conservative, except for areas such as Aspen, Durango and Boulder where progressives thrive. That is why it was no surprise when voters in Poncha Springs, Colorado voted down marijuana sales centers, marijuana infused manufacturing and marijuana growing operations on three separate ballot questions. They voters did not want to be known as the pot growing capital of the world.

By a margin of two to one, Poncha Spring voters voted down these ballot questions. In fact, even in the surrounding small communities such as Salida and Buena Vista the results would be the same. Most of these people really don’t want to see marijuana grown, infused or sold in their neighborhood or community.

This is not to be considered as “medical” marijuana this is just the idea of growing pot for sale. With the explosion of pot centers and pot cardholders throughout Colorado during the past two years, someone had to say enough is enough.
