Weed Fracking

L-Town is in the news again with passage of Ballot Question 300, which bans fracking. I get that Longmont is taking a stand, but one wonders how many lawsuits the city can handle. Gov. Hickenlooper said that the state would likely sue the city again.

The same could be said for Amendment 64 (legalization of marijuana), although the risk of the Feds arresting people smoking a joint in a park are near zero. Commercial dispensaries, though, are much more at risk.

It’ll be interesting to see how these two preemption issues unfold.
