CNN has a cool feature about Trinidad, Colorado, a former mining community and Wild West outpost that has been down on its luck since the mines closed. It was also known for a while as the “The Sex Change Capital of the World,” thanks to surgeon Dr. Stanley Biber. This history is chronicled in the Showtime documentary Trinidad.
Now, thanks to legal marijuana, the town is starting to thrive.
The video is really cool, and they even interview a couple of party poopers at the end who hate on the whole enterprise, but hey, fairness I guess. If you go to Trinidad, pick up some Cheeba Chews. My wife brought some back from a recent trip to Colorado and I can attest that they are amazing.
So hey, America, let’s take legal marijuana nationwide, okay?
