In a recent post, a transplant to Colorado stressed that he didn't move here because of marijuana.

Far from it: He said he doesn't smoke pot, period.

Some of those who responded to the item saw the cannabis boom in Colorado as having negative repercussions in terms of overcrowding, traffic, etc.

But this reader sees only positives — except for people from elsewhere stealing marijuana-biz jobs from those who made the industry possible in the first place.

Pot taxes created jobs in Colorado, Colorado natives made that possible...not transplants who want to take Colorado jobs, 'cause their states are old and outdated.
