CBS report profiles tiny Colorado town for bucking prohibition (twice)


While every Colorado town has a story, most are – in some way or another – related to the state’s rich mining history. Not Garden City, however. That town was founded on alcohol. Specifically: booze was outlawed in Greeley, Colorado even after prohibition, so in 1935 town founders created a four block by five block devoted to bars and liquor sales.
In a case of history repeating itself, Greeley has banned recreational pot sales, but not Garden City.
