"See if you want to live in a major city in Colorado where there's head shops popping up on every corner and people flying into your airport just to come and get high. To me, it's just not the quality of life we want to have here in the state of New Jersey and there's no tax revenue that's worth that."Weird.
In western Nebraska, Deuel County Sheriff Adam Hayward in Chappell said there is constant chatter among regional law enforcement officers — who are increasingly busy handling cases involving Colorado marijuana — that Colorado should shoulder some of the cost.
Hayward said political leaders in Lincoln don't appear to want to get involved.
“I don't know what it will take to get someone to stand up and do something to try to get some of our money back,” he said.
Attorney General Jon Bruning said he wouldn't rule out the possibility of taking Colorado to court over Nebraska's law enforcement costs, but a lawsuit was not imminent.
“We are very troubled by the fact that their change in law has become our problem, so you never say never,” he said.
