High five, Aspen

Dear Editor:

In the Colorado cannabis-futures playout from the ballot to the Colorado Constitution to the streets of Aspen and the asphalt jungle of Denver, Aspen and other Roaring Fork Valley registered voters signature validities kept the recreational-use Mary Jane petition alive, while far more than 100,000 other signatures were no good and dumped in the trash heap.

The signature collecting for the Mary Jane puff ended just before January 2012 as its backers struggled for bona fide registered voter signatures.

Aspen and Roaring Fork Valley voters rarely get the chance to sign off on circulating statewide petitions because the Front Range gets the actions.

So y’all made Colorado history and survived the potential Mary Jane ballot qualifying Alamo for Colorado.

If Aspen cannabis clubs fire up, then do remember you were the qualified few voters who provided the backbone to get recreational Mary Jane on the ballot for a “Rocky Mountain High” success.

Give yourselves a high five wherever you go in Colorado!

Enough said!
