One thing is for sure. The prices will be going down.

It won't take long at all before crime syndicates and other levels of organized crime get a foothold in this new Colorado industry. Huge profits that are perceived as easy to get always attract that element.

Traffic accidents and deaths will also go up substantially as there will be a spike in DUI's. Addictions will also spike resulting in many additional divorces and broken families... along with job firings. These are all just part of the social costs to be paid.

There should be little doubt whatsoever that other social issues and problems will surface relatively quickly. Whether those significant costs will be enough to offset the additional tax revenues is yet to be determined. On the onset, this is a huge social experiment with the potential for massive negative results that most liberal advocates are trying hard to deny and also keep the public eyes closed to. Such things can be denied for only so long before the obvious becomes widely known and the reality of the total picture hits home.
