Presidential Election Not The Only Important Election in Colorado | Ryan Kinnison

When the nation heads for the polls Tuesday, the presidential election won’t be the only issue on ballots. Senate and gubernatorial races will be on some, and legalization of marijuana will be on the ballot in 10 states.


California, Nevada, Arizona, Maine, and Massachussets are all pushing for legal recreational use of marijuana, while Montana, North Dakota, Arkansas, and Florida want to legalize the plant for medicinal use. Colorado is the exception. In 2012, the state legalized recreational pot. It’s not a statewide referendum, but a local issue affecting the city and county of Pueblo, 100 miles south of Denver. Voters will decide whether to reverse the law allowing the production and use of marijuana. Ryan Kinnison was raised on a farm in eastern Nebraska, and now he grows 36 acres of marijuana at Los Suenos Farms in Pueblo County. The farm is believed to be the largest legal field in the country. With an expected yield of 5 to 6 tons, security is a major part of the operations. There are 289 cameras to track anyone entering the field, badge access, and everyone needs to sign in or out.
