There was plenty of green to go around among Aspen's marijuana dispensaries in 2017, and more than enough to top liquor stores in revenue, as well.
Legal-pot purveyors hauled in $11.3 million in revenue last year compared with $10.5 million for liquor stores, marking the first time marijuana sales outpaced booze for the year in Aspen. The figures were provided Wednesday by the city's Finance Department in its year-end sales tax report for 2017, which showed Aspen's retailers combined to generate $730.4 million in revenue, 2 percent better than 2016 (see chart on page A6)....
I was hoping to find something more current and an update to his message that is over 4 years old. I would think universities and think tanks around the world, especially a libertarian one like CATO, would have produced some studies on the Colorado experience.

Colorado is now the most libertarian state in the world because of its treatment of the recreational use of marijuana. What does Biblical law say about the use of drugs like marijuana for recreational use or medicinal value? Kevin Swanson summarizes the Biblical position on this edition of the program. The definition of freedom has been reduced to that which would further undermine true liberty.
Crazy American governments are outlawing 2 liter bottles of pop while at the same time legalizing pot! That's what happens when you abandon God's law as the standard for human behavior and governments.
& I have a vague memory of a recent aside by Swanson that medicinal use is not the same as recreational use. Don't see a title show that way
Most in states with legal fuzziness know of THC vs CBD vs Hemp cloth & paper are confusion factors - Main thing? Be sober minded.

I believe our government is the new drug lord ,cashing in on what they know is wrong because the money is good. Maybe they should legalize prostitution, I bet the money would be good there to. The love of money....

People don't have a sin problem, they're struggling with addiction. If I come up to you and say I'm a drunk, you'd say straighten up. If I say I'm an alcoholic, you say oh, that's too bad. Romans six drives home the point very strongly that sin is addictive. It enslaves and controls the person. The world has rejected the concept of sin. They have rejected the word of God. Believers are also confused on the issue of sin. Part of our problem is we have adopted the world's procedure of categorizing our sins. We think that every sin is unique and so must be dealt with in a special and unique way. As soon as you say the bible is not sufficient to deal with sin of any kind you have a problem. You're saying the bible is not adequate for the very purpose it exists, to liberate, to bring a message of liberation for man in his fallen sinful condition.
