We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

I got a question:
If a football player from Colorado gets caught smoking Marijuana, will he still get in trouble ?
They have a major recruiting advantage now.
Gotta love Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper:
". . .federal law still says marijuana is an illegal drug, so don't break out the Cheetos or Gold Fish too quickly."
Yh if I was them I'll contact The Honey_badger ASAP.
Rationality, and to an extent logic are both very susceptible to be tailored to to each individual.

His point is that marijuana has a lot in common with two substances we already deem legal, tobacco and alcohol. The comparison to things like cocaine, meth, etc., while I understand the intent, isn't really sound because they are so very different. Other than being illegal, they have very little in common.
What I'm interested in seeing is how the federal government will handle this. Technically the usage of marijuana is against federal law, which trumps state law, but they've simply chosen to overlook the medicinal usage of it. Now that it's "legal" recreationally... interesting indeed.
Hopefully they start enforcing it like a mother.
I love living in Colorado!
Who knows, they could use this as a recruiting perk. Legal kush on deck if you come to CU.

excessive caffeine is illegal by the NCAA so i highly doubt there will be any change for marijuana now

35 Bowl Wins (CFB record)
72 Wins over last 6 years (CFB record)
You people do realize that Marijuana is still going to be illegal in Colorado right?
Did I just hear them say legalizing Marijuana for recreational use will generate billions of dollars in revenue?
WHY THE HELL IS SOMETHING LESS DANGEROUS THAN ALCOHOL AND NON-ADDICTIVE ILLEGAL?????????
But again, why? I understand it's illegal, and on that front I totally see them coming down on it, but from some morality standpoint, again, it has WAY more in common with tobacco and alcohol, which are already legal, than things like cocaine. I really don't understand why people make that connection. I'm all for hearing the gateway drug argument if people can provide me a study where people buying marijuana from a dealer that sells nothing but marijuana (and not some guy who also pushes harder drugs) are more susceptible to things like cocaine.
Because people still think the slippery slope argument is logical.
because the DEA has a lot of federal jobs tied to the explicit illegality of marijuana. if it were to become legal, a lot of people would lose their job or maybe be re positioned to stop real drugs like coke, meth, heroin. the fact that marijuana is illegal is one of the stupidest things the citizens have let the gov. convince them of. for the record, i don't even smoke pot but it is absolutely retarded to say it is dangerous or should be illegal. Hell, we have a nation of FATASSES that eat themselves to death and that is perfectly acceptable behavior.
MARIJUANA WILL NOT BE LEGAL IN COLORADO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
well said. I do like to smoke. But a vast majority of people I know and hang out with don't. it's just not a big deal. I don't worry about them taking shots of whiskey, and they don't worry about me smoking a bowl. it's just our preferred method of relaxing after work. just honest, hard working people trying to relax.
I've already mentioned that. Even though medical marijuana usage is going on, it's technically against federal law. But the federal government ignores it. That's why it's interesting.
it was decriminalized up to a point.
this is completely different

Because it's a federal crime to have or use marijuana, and federal law trumps state law. However, they've been overlooking medical usage for a while now.
are you ALWAYS wrong?
well thats just stupid. SO what was the point. Was this vote just to make Colorado people feel like their voice counts. When really the Feds run our life no matter how we vote or what we say. Thats doesn't sound like a free country to me.
while this is technically true, and will most likely be figured out by the courts, there are several approaches that can be taken by the state, if it has the will to.
it is legal in the state of colorado. If they state legislature passes a "fully informed jury act," then the juries in federal court will have to be informed of the state law and that they should nullify the verdict even at the federal court.
there are other things that colorado could do to stand up for its citizens, which would be fffking hillarious.
but, yes... the DEA could still look to prosecute, though it will have a tough time without local support.
