    @ nick

    Colorado and other states with legalized marijuana are getting more than they bargained for in many respects. Homeless are flocking there, which has over run their public assistance programs. Duis from narcotics have skyrocketed. Many other “unintended consequences” along with those. It isn’t all rainbows and butterfly’s.

    I-10 is one of the most heavily used roads in the USA to transport illegal drugs from easternmost Florida to westernmost California.

    When you’re driving along with the family you never know what might be in that vehicle near yours.

    Great Job SRSO & FHP..!!!!!
