Reader: Is Colorado Pot Hurting Missouri Moonshine and Meth Sales?

Missouri is the latest state to express concern about alleged imports of Colorado marijuana.

The state patrol in the state isn't sure about the origin point of all the cannabis they've been seizing lately, but Colorado is their prime suspect, especially since the pot in question is of such high quality compared to the stuff that used to cross Missouri's borders.

Our post on the topic generated some memorable responses, many of them from Missourians.

Here's one of our favorites.

Daniel Webster writes:

Must be harder to find a cigar box with edibles in it than it is to find a meth lab or a still. Are the local moonshine and meth businesses decrying the loss of revenue? Could it be that "High-Quality" pot is just that much more appealing to the fine people of Missouri than moonshine and meth?
