Getting High Safely: Aspen Launches Marijuana Education Campaign
Published on 12/26/14
The local sheriff in Aspen is leading an education effort that targets skiers and snowboarders flocking to the winter resort. And the sheriff isn't waiting until visitors hit the slopes — their education starts at the airport with pamphlets on marijuana.
"It's the brochure rack, and it has information on everything from trails on the ski areas to a day at the Aspen Club and now, the local guide to retail marijuana," says Pat Bingham, a spokesperson for the airport.
