Only concern is taxation and from reading that it would appear that revenue would come from Breck taxes and not county. So I don't really give a shit. I don't bomb peak 8 and I don't drink/smoke where or when people can see me.

$5 says this doesn't actually happen anyway.

Though the town was recently in the national spotlight for decriminalizing small amounts of marijuana, Holman said he doesn’t expect more people to be skiing stoned.

Already happened last year and they've been up there walking around a bit more than usual. Meanwhile I can't get them to come down my job and enforce parking.

I find it more of an annoyance based on principal. I doubt I'll ever be at Breck this season, or the next, but this seems a bit much. Also, aren't these runs located on Forest Service property and are considered not part of the town of Breck? I mean this is Federal property under Federal law. If local police are going to patrol these slopes (pertains to the lower mountain regions they are patrolling course) than wouldn't local law be what they would be enforcing? I seem to remember a little town law that got passed legalizing marijuana...

It's not legalized just decriminalized and they can only patrol so many feet up before it hits forrest service.
