Breckenridge overwhelmingly passed a measure todecriminalize marijuana this week, which means it will be legal for folks 21 and up to carry an ounce or less in the high-(ahem)-altitude ski town. The measureis largely symbolic, since possession of pot is still an offense according tothe state. But it’s a message other Colorado towns have also taken to spreading. Like the small Southwestern Colorado town of Durango, where an organization called Sensible Durango is working to pass asimilar measure to decriminalize weed possession.
