Colorado, never short on new and innovative cannabis ideas, has actually come up with a scenario where everyone wins--the good people of Colorado, Marijuana enthusiasts, the Colorado government, and yes, even the prisoners.
The idea is simple yet efficient, turn an unused women's prison in Brush, CO, into a fully functional marijuana grow. The proposal was actually pitched by a popular former Denver Bronco, Joel Dreessen, which should add some much needed credibility to the risky venture because let's be honest, if you or I would have walked into the Colorado City Planning office with this idea, we probably would have been laughed at and escorted out of the building in short order.
Joel Dressen said, "I want to offer my support to Nick and the City of Brush! I certainly think it is a great opportunity to produce jobs and revenue for the city. As a kid who grew up in a small town and loves to see Morgan County thrive, I like this opportunity. The voters of the State of Colorado have already determined marijuana to be a legal business. Nick is a great leader and I certainly hope the City of Brush takes this opportunity to pioneer a brand new industry."
