OKLAHOMA – Oklahoma law enforcement is bracing for an increase in marijuana after recreational pot use became legal in Colorado yesterday.

Cimarron County shares a border with Colorado.

According to the sheriff’s department there, the county has seen a steady flow of marijuana coming in from Colorado for several years.

The Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics Saus Oklahoma saw a boost in marijuana activity in 2010, that’s when Colorado legalized medical marijuana.

Now authorities say they’re concerned the problem is only going to get worse.
