Colorado continues to be a pioneer in cannabis freedom, with lawmakers now making a bold statement to the feds – Colorado cops won’t participate in your war against people and the cannabis plant

“The state House voted 56-7 Wednesday to bar public employees from assisting federal agents in “arresting a Colorado citizen for committing an act that is a Colorado constitutional right.”
The Colorado bill doesn’t specifically mention marijuana. But sponsors say it is inspired by threats that federal authorities may try cracking down on the marijuana industry. Federal authorities generally rely on local law enforcement to enforce federal drug law.”

If the bill becomes law, Colorado cops would be barred from enforcing federal prohibition. It’s a safe assumption that many, if not most, Colorado cops wouldn’t be harassing people over pot anyway, but a few might leap at the chance to lock up potheads on behalf of the feds.

Asserting constitutional freedom is enough reason to flex 10th Amendment rights, but legislators are also aware of the enormous economic boost cannabis legalization has brought to Colorado. In fact, the cannabis industry is contributing more to the state’s economy than all other industries.

The threat of a federal crackdown has already had negative effects, though, as Colorado lawmakers decided to back off plans to allow pot clubs where users could ‘bring their own.’
