Roger Morris: Antarctica: a good vacation spot for marijuana foes?

Marijuana use has been a part of the Breckenridge community for decades longer than you have been blessing us with your presence. Many of those people who help make your vacations ones to treasure are, in fact, regular marijuana users and supporters of the legalization of marijuana. You have chosen to broadcast your ignorance and intolerance to the whole community by painting an entire population with wide, all-encompassing brush strokes. Maybe there are no individuals in Texas, and the diversity here in Summit County has finally pushed the last of your many buttons. Or maybe you’re envious that some people are able to relax and enjoy life, rather than be stuck in the rat race with people who hate what they do for a living. Whatever your reasoning, choosing to find a new location for your family vacation will be better for all parties involved – except, of course, for those parties currently enjoying the next vacation spot you choose.

A suggestion, if I may: Choose Antarctica. The permanent human population in Antarctica is zero. It is probably the only chance you have of choosing a location with zero marijuana use. It is also the only location where your presence won’t be a detriment to the community located there. Unless you try to feed the local wildlife – which you probably will because as we all know, the world is your play-thing and was made solely for your enjoyment. Let us all hope that the wildlife you end up feeding is a polar bear.
