HIGH TIMES INDEED

Voters in Denver voted to legalize possession of small amounts of marijuana for adults. Essentially this would mean that being a smoker would be decriminalized, while being a dealer would not be.

Denver is unique as the Mile High City because it has very thin air. In baseball the effect is well documented, and summarized by the following quote, "the ball still travels 9% farther at 5,280 feet than at sea level. It is estimated that a home run hit 400 feet in sea-level Yankee Stadium would travel about 408 feet in Atlanta and as far as 440 feet in the Mile High City." I wonder if tokers get 9% higher in Denver than at sea level.
