Pot seen as reason for rise in Denver homeless - Yahoo News
"Of the new kids we're seeing, the majority are saying they're here because of the weed," deputy director Kendall Rames told The Denver Post (bit.ly ). "They're traveling through. It is very unfortunate."
There are two main reasons people, especially young people, are emigrating to Colorado:
1. They are looking for work, or
2. they are looking for marijuana.
Unable to find it, they wind up in homeless shelters. But the number 1 reason they wind up in homeless shelters is the quest for pot.
