Houstonian Joe Mattingly likes the finer things in life. Namely, he enjoys expensive ski trips to Vail, Beaver Creek, Utah and Lake Tahoe. And now he’s thinking about visiting Steamboat Springs. The only problem? Colorado legalized marijuana and this Texan doesn’t want it interfering with his vacation. In fact, he might choose another destination if he and the youngsters with him are subjected to to the sight or scent of pot, or the sound of people talking about it.
“While Colorado politics is certainly none of my business, I thought that my thoughts might potentially be of interest to some people in Steamboat,” he wrote Steamboat Today last week. Translation: “I clearly think Colorado politics is my business and I’m going to tell you why right now.”
