Posted on 03/10/2014 5:48:53 AM PDT by massmike
A barber shop in Greeley refuses service to people who smell like marijuana.
The owner of Hugos Barber Shop said he felt he had to step in when it got bad.
I feel that its my right to make the statement. Its the same thing as no shoes no service, said shop owner Hugo Corral.
When his customers, many of them with children, started expressing their frustration about the issue he decided it was time for a change.
A mother calls and says hey we cant go in there anymore because we dont want it to smell like marijuana when my childs sitting there waiting, said Corral.
For the most part he said the response has been positive.
However not everyone sees it as a good move.
Corral said hes been threatened with lawsuits and people trashing his window.
People ripping the sign off, Ive had to clean spit off my front door, said Corral.
Despite the negative reaction from some, Corral said hes going to keep the policy in place and says if people dont like it they can go somewhere else.
According to a local attorney, Corral does have the right to refuse service to someone who has been smoking pot as long as its not a Constitutional issue involving a persons race, religion or gender.

...this is a commonality among liberals. All of them are vicious, petty and out of control. I thought pot was supposed to “mellow” you out?
Maybe that IS mellow for a liberal...
True. They won’t let up either. Even if Hugo changes his mind, he’s been targeted. My Dad was a barber for 30 years. Super nice guy and a vet of WW11, Korea and 2 tours Vietnam. He never would’ve put up with this sh&&.
Wow. What a novel concept! Find someone who WANTS to do business with you...
I have a list of services I would not want someone performing for me if they have expressed their personal opposition to performing said services. Preparing food for me and cutting my hair are both in the top five on that last.
Besides which, I'm having trouble grasping that marijuana supposedly makes people mellow and yet all this violence is going on in this situation.
I think that rejecting dopers as customers is awesome
I actually have to ask these parents that want to run into court for custody if they smoke weed and tell them they aren’t smoking weed during the litigation.
--surely this guy should be forced to give haircuts to smelly customers,just as shop owners should be forced to bake cakes for those of whose lifestyle they don't approve--(sarc)
“as long as its not a Constitutional issue involving a persons race, religion or gender.”
And sexual deviation.
“I’ve had to clean spit off my front door.”
Surely sounds like those potheads in CO are civilized folks, doesn’t it? Can you imagine what that state will look like in five years?

The only freedoms liberals really care about involves sex, drugs and general depravity.

Hippies don’t cut their hair. Problem solved.
I don’t know what it is about it, but there is a girl that works at the coffee shop in town and every once in a while she puts on a little patchouli oil. She doesn’t use an obnoxious amount, just a little touch. When I walk into the shop, I smell it and know she’s there, and it’s comforting.
I kinda like the smell of it, then again I like the smell of crude oil too.
Ha! Very good point.
ah the classiness of the pit heads reveals itself.....
Hmmm. "Homosexual" is not a gender.
This violence has been common with potheads all my life.
They describe themselves as mellow in the same wa muslims describe themselves as peaceful.
Colorado has really gone down hill.
Even before legalization, I think Colorado Springs and Boulder had their share of hippies. But if some impaired motorist should cut down some hikers or cyclists? Hmmn.
Where is homosexual rights in that?
where is the second hand smoke crowd?
Hippies dont cut their hair. They went bald.
Here is how I would handle this crap.
Sign out front...
“I WILL REFUSE TO GIVE THIS FREE SEVICE TO ANYONE I DONT LIKE OR DON’T FEEL LIKE SERVING FOR ANY REASON!”
“HERE IS A SHORT LIST OF THOSE I WILL DENY FREE HAIRCUTS TO.
1-FREAKS AND DEMOCRATS (REDUNDANT)
3-YOU VOTED FOR OBAMA 2X’S (SEE #1 ABOVE)
4-GLOBAL WARMING IDIOTS
5-CAN’T UNDERSTAND THE MALE/FEMALE THING
6-THIS SIGN OFFENDS YOU
(Then have a list of Suggested Donations...$)
Look at David Crosby.
Pot smokers now claim to be a politically protected class.
Maybe they shouldn't have taken to demonizing tobacco smokers...
That's what the faggot army tried doing to Barney's sign in the 70s
Why would hippies ever want to enter a barber shop?
And freedom from work and paying bills.
None of the non-biological genders matter.
They claim now that they are “fluid” identities that you can CHOOSE to be male one day, self-identify as a butch female the next day, self-identify as a straight cross-dresser the next day, etc.
IF you want to go to court to change your legal name, you can insist that people use your new name. But just demanding that they call you whatever you decide to be that day is entertaining insanity.
IF the courts are going to recognize “sex change” paperwork (even though the SCIENCE is unchanged, the DNA remains the same), then any claims to “gender” difference must be made in court and held to. None of this “fluid” BS.
The potheads will say that they only become violent when they are off their meds (which they claim they are not addicted to).
Their lawyers ask them to "clean up" before making a court appearance.
Some ‘freak flag’ that, these days.
i would too
He hated his incarceration in Texas. It saved him from his crack cocaine addiction. His subsequent touring gave him good bread.
