As a native, I think that Colorado is greatly improved by open-minded, educated out-of-towners. We voted against gay marriage, we used to be a Republican state, and now look at us. My opinion is, keep coming to Denver for "the weed" or whatever it is that brings you here. You all make Denver a more accepting open minded place to live.
