How dumb can this be ? We won’t arrest you for 95 grams of pot. But we will for 100. 
Plus – How do they think people are going to get 95 grams of pot ? Oh -we ‘re going to arrest people who sell pot ! (?!)  Do they think smugglers are going to smuggle ( or home grow) 95 grams at a time ?  Pot sellers will form a  human chain to pass around no more than 95 grams at a time all the way to Colombia or Mexico ? If possession of 95 grams doesn’t get you arrested ( and it shouldn’t) then this is an indication that the police department can’t be bothered but are increasingly congested with these kinds of “busts”.  
How stupid people in the future are going to think we were. 
How stupid people in the present think we are. 
Has Colorado dissolved or suffered any dire consequences ? 
Wait- we allow people to buy, sell, smoke, and die from tobacco. Legally.
We allow people to buy, sell, smoke, and die from alcohol. Legally.
What is wrong with us that we can’t admit this was a mistake and as a society, we can figure out a way to allow this and hence move on with our lives ?
Don’t we have more important things to do than Pot ?
