I was just going to post something similar (also a Colorado resident).
It is amazing how normal the whole thing has become here. A lot of coworkers very openly talk about it. It is advertised openly and the retail spots are very respectable. A lot of the stereotypes of stoners are melting away.
It is always a shock to my system when I go to a state where it isn’t legal and I’m always taken aback that it is such a hot topic of conversation. I don’t partake but know many people who do (including my wife), but hearing people talk about having dealers, or an area being’ dry just sounds so foreign to me.
It has just been such a positive development for us here in Colorado that I can’t even comprehend why everyone hasn’t followed suit.
