DENVER - Colorado's Department of Tourism is reporting that just since the new Marijuana Law went into effect on January 1, commercial airline flights into Colorado have gone up by an astounding 900 percent.
Socorro Ziddle, 29, with the CDT stated that she has never seen Denver's John & Bob Denver International Airport as busy as it has been for the past 10 days.
Miss Ziddle, who has a Master's Degree in Consumer Affairs, said that the prevalent odor of marijuana smoke in the airport has caused many elderly citizens to suddenly develop urges for pizzas, Hostess Twinkies, and peanut butter and banana sandwiches.
She went on to say that she has personally heard many out of state tourists remark that they thought they were high when they were at 30,000 feet in the airplane.
SIDENOTE: Several hotels in Denver, Colorado Springs, and Pueblo are now placing a marijuana joint on the hotel room pillows in lieu of the traditional chocolate mints.
