BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. - High-altitude partying is a deeply carved tradition in ski country, where alcohol in the open and illicit drugs in the shadows have been intertwined for years.
Even before last week’s town vote here that decriminalized the possession of small amounts of marijuana, one of the best-selling T-shirts at Shirt and Ernie’s on Main Street winked at what it means to live and play 9,600 feet up in the Rockies.
“Dude,” the shirt says, “I think this whole town is high.”
This should prove to be an interesting social experiment. If the local LEO's do not enforce state and federal statutes, and if this escalates into major abuse or expands to others illegal substances, the fallout could be some of the most unwanted publicity the snow sports industry could ever dream of!
