But then I remembered what the state of things is in Colorado. I suppose there are a lot more office looking people who might actually be carrying weed. Not me any means, no matter how legal it gets, but some. It might not be as amusing as it struck me.

Still, it seemed funny to me. They were so polite about it. Much more polite than I’d normally assume a kid in an open leather jacket and no shirt would be. Maybe I’m getting old.
