Anne Hoffman: Done with ‘pot-head’ Breck

I found it interesting that the issues highlighted in two articles recently have direct bearing on each other, but it appears Breck town council is clueless about the connection. One article discusses a need for a tax hike for marketing. The Oct. 21 editorial supports legalizing marijuana. So, you want the “family friendly resort of Breckenridge” to legalize pot. Do you think we are bringing our kids to Breckenridge if it is going to attract a bunch of potheads on skis? And you want to increase marketing through taxes … but it will REALLY be an uphill battle when people like us – families with money to spend who would normally go to Breck – go elsewhere. And, buy a house or condo in Breck? No thanks – we can buy elsewhere. Tax residents to the poorhouse to support marketing for a group that drives out tourists with a “pot-head” reputation! Good thinking. And goodbye from us … we’ll be skiing elsewhere.
