Married spouses in Colorado do not always have the same financial resources. For example, one spouse may earn significantly more than the other, or one spouse may have exited the workforce altogether to take care of the family.

Possession of small amounts of legally acquired marijuana may not be a crime in Colorado, but those in possession of other illegal drugs will still be harshly penalized.

Seeing red and blue lights flashing in your rear-view mirror is a sight no motorist wants to see.
