Street marijuana dealers face the same risks and penalties if they 
were selling crack cocaine or other schedule 1 substances. Because 
they take the same risk, it is likely that the street dealer will 
also carry drugs other than marijuana.

The illegal street pusher takes no more risk offering more dangerous 
and addictive substances and therefore offers the gateway to purchase them.

Recreational cannabis is clean, controlled, monitored by law 
enforcement, regulated and tested. No other product is dispensed and 
no gateways are offered within these law-abiding establishments.

Let's keep our recreational systems in place and keep our Pueblo 
residents out of jeopardy. Let's keep educating and put our efforts 
into preventing illegal street marijuana gateway sales from occurring.
