Bill Ewing: Done with Breck

We just returned from our annual vacation in Breckenridge, which will be our last. How shocking and disappointing to find out that Breckenridge now has a large number of medical marijuana dispensaries operating in the town! Dinner companions told us that young people joke about how quick and simple it is to get medical prescriptions (headache, back pain, hang nails) for the drug. We noted many ads in your paper for these dispensaries. We also read that Vail and a number of other vacation resorts have refused to allow such facilities. Can we interpret from this that Breckenridge no longer wishes to be known as the premier Colorado family vacation destination? It appears that you are morphing Breck into a 20-something party town. Shame on your city council! We will find a new vacation spot next year.
