BRECKENRIDGE, Colorado - The Rocky Mountain town of Breckenridge, Colorado has just become the most map quested town in the entire world with tens of thousands of visitors expected to flock in from California alone.

Breckenridge voters voted by a 72% to 28% margin to legalize marijuana (i.e. cannabis, weed, grass, pot, Durango Bango.)

City council member Millie "Cuchi-Coo" Westermost, 52, said that the people of Breckenridge have spoken and now the town can go on and deal with more important matters, other than busting the occasional recreational weed-user.

Ms. Westermost said that the members of the Breckenridge Police Department now need to turn their attention to and focus on putting an end to those who litter, those who disobey the school zone laws, and those who go around singing John Denver songs way, way out of tune.

Breckenridge Chief of Police Howard F. Heckafelli, was asked to comment on the passing of the new marijuana law, which is unofficially referred to by the young locals as "The Damn Sweet Rocky Mountain High Mary Jane Hip Hip Hooray Law Thingy."

Police Chief Heckafelli replied that he will definitely abide by what the good people of Breckenridge have mandated.

He then pointed out that his only concern is that the small Rocky Mountain community with a population of 2,408, will probably by the end of the year swell up to perhaps two or maybe even three million new citizens.

Heckafelli reported that the day after the new law passed, his office was inundated with literally tens of thousands of calls from every state in the union as well as from 127 foreign countries.

Chief of Police Heckafelli said that singer Willie Nelson alone called him a dozen different times. The last time Mr. Nelson asked him to please book ten rooms at the local Holiday Inn for him and his band members.

When asked for how many days. Nelson replied "Oh, let's make it 60 days to start with."

Breckenridge Mayor Naomi Figgflicker, 42, has stated that there is already talk among the townspeople about changing the name of Main Street to Reefer Road.

One longtime Breckenridge citizen, Carlos "Puff-Puff" Mantequilla, said that he called a cousin who has been living in Denmark for the past 12 years and that he said that he was booking the next flight to Denver, which is about 80 miles east of Breckenridge.

In related news. Rufus Okaloosa owner of The Stoned Pebble Novelty Shoppe said that since the new marijuana law passed the sales of roach clips have gone from about a dozen a day to over 800 a day.
