Me and my friend each had Fisher Price Big Wheels. We were about 5 years old. I said to him "Hey Bobby... let's pedal as fast as we can and see who wins"

Are you kidding? He has always been a little wacky!

Besides. People all across the country smoke it. Colorado just taxes the legal retail sales. Almost $5mil per month and climbing.

I don't partake, but I am very proud that my state of Colorado asserted its right to govern itself and disregard the federal government which has no jurisdiction over the states.
