Who knows what’s going to happen if you decide to smoke marijuana on a ski hill in Colorado.

Actually we do, you will be high(er) and you could get kicked out and get your ski pass revoked. Police might even be called.

It’s also quite possible that no one will care. Confused? You’re not the only one.

The Denver Post said it depends on which ski slope you visit because recreational pot policies differ, or add to the confusion.

Here is a few interesting sentences from the Post’s article:

“Two weeks ago, Arapahoe Basin Chief Operating Officer Alan Henceroth revoked two visitors’ passes after he found them smoking on the slopes. He wrote a blog post on the incident, which served as a reminder that smoking pot in public – or on public lands – remains illegal.”

Here is a little from the blog. ‘Marijuana smokers, please use your heads on this.  You cannot smoke marijuana in public while at A-Basin” Henceroth wrote.
