Jennifer Garcia of New Mexico taunts the people of Colorado for growing “weed.” She laughs at them. Amen! she writes.
Colorado, you grow the weed and we will grow the chile. Stay in your lane.
Love New Mexico
Her friends joined in with the condescending post. Stoners, they laugh!!!
Michael Yazzie The governor of Colorado must be smoking that legal pot in Denver. Ha!
Jennifer Garcia Right?!
Wenona Westerhold Love this post and completely true
I’m pro-chile, pro-cannabis, and an economist. I love chile — preferably red; and cannabis — preferably sativa. I don’t consume either at this time.
Want to shout out to my friend, Caralyn, for posting a magnificent Mexican Quinoa pizza and delicious guacamole recipe today. Check her out. A little chile and cannabis pare nicely with her dishes.
Chile v. Cannabis By The Financial Numbers
Tallies for the last growing season show planted chile acreage has shrunk by more than half over the last 17 years, from a peak in 2005 of 17,500 acres to 8,100 acres last year.
About 94 percent of the 8,100 acreage was harvested.
As for the value of the chile crop, dropped to an estimated $44.6 million in 2017 despite continued demand for New Mexico’s signature crop. [source]
VALUE of NM Chili Market
- 2017: $44.6 Million
VALUE of Colorado Cannabis Market
- 2018: $1,545 Million
- 2017: $1,507 Million
- 2016: $1,307 Million
Colorado makes 35 TIMES more on cannabis than NM makes on chili.
