Colorado has consistently been way ahead of the curve with a lot of legislation. Legalizing weed and taxing it to fund public education, fully funding IUDs for any woman that wants it, and just recently voted to legalize mushrooms and other hallucinogenic drugs.

Still couldn't pass a bill to allow wine to be sold in grocery stores, but at least they made somewhat of a fair argument against it.

I've been proud to be able to vote on a lot of those progressive movements!

Pretty hilarious about the wine in grocery stores. I don't really understand why that didn't pass, but I'm not bothered either.

Another very underrated CO prop this year was for all future tax adjustment propositions to include tax bracket information so everyone can figure out exactly how much these propositions will cost them in real dollar amounts.

Wonderful transparency!

/end of Colorado fanboy hype

There wasn't really a reason to vote against wine in grocery stores other than to stick it to DoorDash, Instacart, Krogers, Safeway, Target, and Whole Foods

I'm not from here, just happened to be here for work for election day. The ads I saw about it mentioned liquor stores' limits on licenses whereas grocery stores would potentially get unlimited licenses. Which is still far better than Southern states that are still fighting it based on religious and moral reasons.

We do still have some puritan shit in Colorado regarding booze. Namely that you can't sell it on Christmas.

I live in a state that just legalized weed, and is otherwise majority liberal, and there's zero alcohol in our grocery stores as well. Our largest county also will only use county liquor stores, no mom'n'pop shops. Leave that county, and liquor stores are everywhere, lol.
