"It was an unintended consequence of the legalization of marijuana,"said Governor Hickenlooper of Colorado, “but house fires are up over 50% in the state, and most of them go unreported because when a fire breaks out, no one seems to care."
"What can be done, Governor?" asked Reporter Doyle of the Chronicle.
"I’m proud to announce we've developed a new fire alarm system to fully address the problem. As soon as the system detects smoke, it issues a special chemical into the environment."
