It makes no sense to portray cigarettes as a societal plague but marijuana as a state-sanctioned, harmless vice. If the Colorado vote isn't a victory for regulatory consistency, it is a win for one group. Border-county police departments in neighboring states are poised to reap a bonanza in associated tickets and fines.

In Oklahoma, Cimarron County Sheriff Keven McIntire reports that a quarter of marijuana arrests are “medical” users coming from Colorado. He predicts that figure will climb now that people no longer have to even fake an illness.
