While no state agency records how many homeless people were drawn by legal weed, officials at homeless centers say the influx they are seeing is straining their ability to meet the needs of the increasing population.
"The older ones are coming for medical (marijuana), the younger ones are coming just because it's legal," said Brett Van Sickle, director of Denver's Salvation Army Crossroads Shelter, which has more than doubled its staff to accommodate the increase.
The shelter did an informal survey of the roughly 500 new out-of-towners who stayed there between July and September and found as many as 30 percent had relocated for pot, he said. http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2014/dec/23/shelters-cite-legal-pot-part-denvers-rise-homeless/
The liberals (and some libertarians) want to legalize pot throughout the country but it has been shown to be another liberal failure.
