Okay the altitude is guy and now you can be too.
Yes -- terrorism is there any other kind is about to become a thing and Colorado thanks to a state task force recommendation.
The task force was set to look up ways to regulate marijuana after voters made the drug legal last year pay attention to parents -- -- right now.
-- -- -- -- losses weed is legal for people over twenty want it applies not just a residence but to any still owner in this state.
They recommend putting up signs -- airports and borders letting terrorists know they can't take a week with them along with a possible cap -- -- -- blunt they can buy it once for more.
Let's check in with -- legalization correspondent.
But Robin Williams takes off his shirt but he got tied up too horrible to me out okay will this be a boon for Colorado tourism or just a boon for trash like you I think it's gonna be a boon for whoever Viet Taco Bell franchise and Colorado you know I don't get -- -- -- -- -- you -- -- -- -- out that so I've heard yes.
Yeah I think it's I think it's good idea I think the states should kind of take the and lead take a Colorado public and done that do the same thing yeah study yeah now it's not really highway.
Now I I don't -- the plot.
But I do think people should be able to I mean I don't see any problem at the jails are full of people -- -- the space and money that are just now.
Smoke and weeks happens here's the issue I Harris I know that you -- happy about this could use you told an agreement that you planet vacationing in Colorado from here on and once you legalize it in Colorado.
It's like you create for Mexican -- -- the other states.
They ought to worry about the -- so it's gonna leave it neat it's gonna -- to legalization elsewhere.
Yeah I mean you're you're getting to a serious point I've got to Netherlands where it's much more local -- for the people in Colorado and that is how do you keep this out of the hands of minors and you've got a task force people out working coal mines -- you know minorities.
-- you've got a task force an official task force yeah.
By February 28 they have to come up with the rules the regulations for this.
They can't agree on the words locked and secured right -- if you're growing marijuana in your backyard and there's a sense in your neighbors can't quite see the -- -- -- flocked to secure right you asked the task force that they say well we're not quite sure that if we don't know you might even put up a higher fence we're not -- so basically.
If kids can see this yeah you know I mean they're gonna probably get to it how do you keep.
Okay the miners -- yeah all right.
I'm tired of our country being run by the concerns of children that I killed -- they're not only.
Yeah I'm able to -- well we definitely DeVon but what you don't make a lot of money out of this people who sell stock photos of wheat -- Ultimately needs and -- good -- That there's one right yeah that's not even we -- and companies that make it and get an added -- it.
Now do you anticipates.
As a musician more confidence in Colorado do you dread this do you think this is a good thing -- that thing.
Our question first do you guys of all -- right yes yeah.
Throughout history yes I'm out of here -- I that's that's I guess the funny thing with like the whole idea of it being legal -- one part not the rest is it.
I don't know for me I quit smoking we -- -- six years ago yes and I think that the whole like.
You know taking it into the consideration children -- -- get a genetic predisposition to any sort of mental illness -- been glossed over yeah and I think with music and everything were involved with at this point -- just.
That often get sort of overlooked in the sort of flurry of it being this the nine I don't know I have no idea what he's saying but what what you're saying is is that.
For pop you know generally did that let's -- the majority of the population could handle it but there are people -- salute that when they take it.
I -- like would you how much smoking hotline that's what leaders are grown amendment yeah.
Not yet that would be a psychological -- -- -- -- -- It's not going to write.
Just in Colorado.
Send -- my god legitimate -- if people suffer.
Because the minority people cannot handle something anything in this country but it seems like we -- cars in women can't drive.
All right good yeah it's so early but what about the idea of addiction though I think that your behavior addicted to accidents and any assortment yes gonna fall into that as -- master of.
May I may go back to this whole what -- kids have access to the the next door to get his.
Is that not the same as all I don't know your parents -- -- -- tools a lot of power that -- -- Google rods -- play with my I pharmaceuticals and I don't have a garage of power tools kids that's -- you're in the is right yeah yeah yeah.
Is that everything that there -- pharmaceutical out in the backyard that is the difference and and I you know what I gather and I think unlocked -- assumption that everybody at the table has done this you know I I -- to the alcohol but I really haven't had an audience now I haven't at school and I don't -- -- -- -- -- -- happening.
The fact that I'm not legal -- if we are gonna legalize it though than we have to find a way to protect the population that.
That is what we do okay this is an agency point OK so if you have if alcohol is legalized.
It's easier for kids to get pot.
The and it did alcohol because there's no idea involved like -- that will they get a good look at Sarah -- -- -- -- variety to get alcohol with pot.
He's -- we dealer it wants is legalize the and they got to have an idea for the pot that makes it harder for kids to get -- Okay great if -- again if the regulators can do but it can't I mean these are guys who can't.
Decide on the hike again this line that is so I don't know if ever gonna get to the finer points of regulation with an ID card by February 28.
Did you do you think that that there's actually any attention being paid at all to like the possible ramifications of a drug -- it is there I.
You what I think I think that this is an experiment.
I do think that they're gonna have to look at it.
Let you what -- Colorado it's.
Colorado is the party house of the nation's yeah.
Every like -- got 52 -- this is the house to all the kids are gonna go do.
And they got to see like what happens if like jobs -- -- it productivity.
Or if they're more -- there's more crime this is it it I think this is an experiment that kind of has to happen.
-- because we know the prohibition didn't work with alcohol and once we got -- that they have the violence went down.
They you'll get every -- we look at Chicago all the Chicago's is drug lords.
This week on what we got the hollered on the I think -- -- eyesight help -- Escape the backs we know backups that it is learning how -- -- -- I'm got a honest.
I don't any it.
It's going to be something -- he watched for two years the hi I'm tired of the government coming in though and trying to regulate and and legislate every single thing -- sometimes basic parenting and teaching kids right from wrong.
Has to be an honor to rule that's in place because you're taking away freedoms from everyone else.
Based on what might happen to this small group that kids that you can't handle things that's -- I was tired of having to sacrifice things that I enjoy doing because some people can handle it or it's not safe for the children wouldn't wouldn't.
Everything I -- Colorado I loved clothes I -- drone is I mean everything I don't know I don't know I don't it's no I wouldn't gamble and a hangover and you'll.
He actually -- tonight's drifters going to happen.
-- draw the line having seen in Canada I think that's gonna come up and I felt a lot better but -- get into is.
OK so if you if you could -- -- it's going to be like Amsterdam where.
If you would we either have -- you're taking it like I was there when I would like my last week -- my fiance.
My yeah my wife -- -- propose to work.
In an accident and we took pictures brightens with fifty pictures in each one -- -- -- in the background throwing up.
So -- -- I don't think god could not handle the week vomiting.
This is what's gonna happen at Colorado with the altitude and everybody's gonna get high and throw up on each other -- higher than didn't have to do before they get on the -- because -- they don't.
-- not allowed to travel with pot.
All the things that everybody outside the Colorado a Denver airport is going to be popping and if you keep.
Well yeah and they sell there animals.
A lot of I would advise me cookie and the labels it -- cookie diet what I would do a little bit and I bad news for those that call Iraq.
That would yeah.
I would take the label that pot could be on the -- and -- -- my bed and he's -- I'm not.
I'm saying they had one yeah that yeah.
Small growth and you're brilliant we have got Smart he just -- the wrapper away -- I would also say that the dogs in the courts these days.
He's not bombs just eleven marijuana that's not they don't throw out there I can't get out of state issues that -- not that I had not happened yet.
Wow you got a bag -- labels back then I also don't want them.
Marijuana purchased in Colorado must stay in Colorado that's -- official wording of it so basically they've become the new Vegas yeah that it would get a word yeah -- usually nobody knows how rather you have to leave the time.
It's -- illegally stupid -- you there's no way there's going to be kids coming from Wyoming right.
But get their drugs -- it's the near the end of I think it's the end of to criminal I think it's the end of illegal marijuana -- -- -- topic but how can.
I don't know -- seems like if you're gonna do it does do it again and -- -- and -- that -- -- -- turned around and that's the beauty of states vs federal government.
You gotta try out the states and then it's over it's like -- it's like he can't keep putting him whether -- -- yeah.
Did -- once the once Colorado happens in all this stuff starts moving out.
What you say is true right there's -- -- be no way for any other in the states to police this is going to be it's -- it is like colossus like the guns are coming to Chicago and guns are coming to.
Baltimore come from other states and how independent or is he stayed down here is it like really that -- Well around don't want to Hampshire got to kind of live -- bet a lot of everyday they were killed Nadia killed all Canadians.
I am not at all yeah.
It's worth thousands -- -- about it this -- products -- into a -- yesterday -- -- entered the although Missouri spot that -- -- stay at -- -- average and another another really hates my theory is it is it badly.
Everything's just like so sovereign that he can get away with I mean yeah that's what the beauty of -- is that -- you have me.
You have to have that kind of independence.
Because that was appointed the United States -- -- he -- -- has had medical marijuana in place for quite awhile -- so I -- you've -- -- -- -- -- their federal -- and all of that I have right -- that right now the feds have gone in and actually -- these people that have these pot stores than what do you see that happening in Colorado we -- well maybe not under Obama but maybe you don't strike you know look at -- -- cannot come out against it and -- marijuana because he smoked his entire life.
He's got to be used to -- and get right now everybody's yeah.
-- can't do it dries it makes me to do.
Make that -- makes me completely cuckoo but you're -- went out and that's what happens to.
What are your thoughts can't feel any part of my body then have to -- -- I have to run to get -- -- got an open -- I've done it probably about -- probably 25 years.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- At night he didn't know I -- I am terrified of it is I'm I would rather do -- just because he did it it you what it is.
It it -- the time factor.
You don't know when it's going to go away with everything else with an alcohol only that we're not -- -- -- -- tells you this could be the rest of Nevada first.
They might look like I could in the -- -- -- -- -- like Titanic.
