Letter: Vallario: Quit complaining about pot

I see Garfield County Sheriff Lou Vallario supports six other Colorado sheriffs trying to overturn the legalization of marijuana in our state. I guess this should come as no surprise coming from a man who has a huge Army assault vehicle in his arsenal just in case the natives get restless.

Hey, Lou, I guess you long for the good old days when the violent Mexican drug cartels controlled most of the weed coming into Colorado. When our elected officials put their personal agendas ahead of the will of their constituents our very democracy is being threatened .

Lou, your job is to uphold the laws of Colorado, so I suggest you start doing just that. The six sheriffs trying to overturn the will of the people should be up for recall, although I’m not holding my breath.
