When the media writes about Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper (we call him Howdy Doody here in Colorado) objecting to Colorado voters legalizing marijuana, it should be ah, kind of relevant (to say the least) to note that Howdy Doody is a freaking beer magnate and of course he doesn’t want marijuana to take hold:

John Hickenlooper Warns Govs on Pot Legalization

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper urged fellow governors Saturday to be cautious about following his state’s lead in embracing marijuana.

The Democrat worries other states will legalize pot so that they can tax it and fill budget shortfalls.

“The jury is still out on this thing,” he said in between meetings at the National Governors Association in Washington . “It’s going to be one of the great social experiments of the 21st century. As we implement it, we want to make sure that our society is no worse off than it was before this was passed. If we were legalizing whiskey, I’d be doing the same thing.”
Gee.  We want to “make sure that our society is no worse off than it was before this was passed?”  Let’s talk Doody about the consequences of imbibing in general, including on alcohol.

“It’s like promoting gambling,” he said. “It always makes you nervous when you see government promoting gambling or any of those sin trades. They are revenue sources. … We know people are not going to be better off smoking pot. It doesn’t mean they should be arrested … but we know it doesn’t make you smarter.”
What?  Get me to that rum and coke.  I didn’t know alcohol makes you smarter!
