"Flood Relief" in Boulder, Colorado

I think they should give out Twinkies and cartons of milk too, but that's just me....

There's going to be some smoke on the water in Boulder, CO.

After devastating floods shut down the state and claimed the lives of ten people, residents in this college mountain town are trying to get back to business as usual, which includes smoking some ganja.

Organizers are set to hand out free joints today on Boulder's bustling Pearl Street Mall, the Daily Camera reported.

While much of the city is focused on rebuilding, the giveaway is an effort to help “stressed out recreational users” who may have lost their stashes to flooding. It's also supposed to serve as a protest a marijuana sales tax ballot that will ask voters in November to approve a 15-percent excise tax.

“Boulder has been victimized by floods,” said Rob Corry, who helped organize the event and hopes to defeat the tax ballot. “We want to bring some flood relief to folks.”

The idea first started two weeks ago, when Corry and other organizers against the ballot handed out free joints in Denver. Despite long lines and a police presence, there were no arrests, The Denver Post reported.

"I wish I could have gotten a bigger one because there were blunts in there," said recreational user Janet Osborn, 27, at the Denver event. "I got probably the smallest one. But it's OK. It's free."

Monday's event is expected to see smaller numbers than the Denver event saw, where more than 600 joints were passed out.

“I’m sure there won’t be too much public consumption [at the Boulder event],” Corry said.

Flood relief donations also will be accepted at the event.

One of the prettiest places you could ever visit. Mall Crawl kicks ass.

My wife had a meeting in the building near where the free marijuana was given out in Denver. She reported that it backfired on the organizers because the people who showed up did not represent the brand well. Apparently word spread fast among the homeless and the panhandlers, because based on her reporting no one in line had ever held a job or showered.

Yeah, the destructiveness of the storm is just mind blowing. The latest estimate I saw said we've got about a half BILLION dollars in damage in roads and bridges alone - not including property damage. I'm not sure anyone really knows how we're going to pay for it.

One caveat on the pics in the link though: I know for a fact that the "trailer park" was essentially a salvage yard, and I suspect the picture of all the "parked cars" was one as well.

The Monday night football plugs for donations was a cool effort imho.

Maybe a 15% tax on weed?
