Thoughtful Marijuana citizens group: Take it slow and vote no on marijuana on Main Street

Since the Breckenridge Town Council has asked through the upcoming special election if we want recreational marijuana on Main Street we have an answer — no. As a group of parents, children, teens, business owners, athletes and every day citizens who make this town thrive, we do not want this to be the image and brand of our charming historic town and Main Street.

While there is every chance for a downside and backlash from the visitors we have spent the so many years courting, there is little potential upside from this experiment. To play it safe we would rather we found other locations served by public transportation and resort shuttles for them to do their brisk and legal business.

As the Thoughtful Marijuana group says on their post cards when marijuana becomes mainstream in America we can consider it, until then let’s take it slow and vote no.
