Blues flying high

The cost of a haircut… despite differences on drones and pot, Linden Blue has given generously to Colorado senator Mark Udall.
The cost of a haircut… despite differences on drones and pot, Linden Blue has given generously to Colorado senator Mark Udall.

The conservative Blue brothers, Linden and Neal of La Jolla, are well known for their backing of Republicans near and far. During the fall mayoral special election, Linden tossed in $5000 for San Diego County’s GOP, which is backing San Diego city councilman Kevin Faulconer against his Democratic colleague David Alvarez.

Linden is also a major foe of marijuana and its legalization, penning an op-ed piece calling for testing of high-school students’ hair samples for cannabis traces. By a stroke of fate, the brothers’ home state of Colorado was one of the nation’s first to legalize weed. And the state’s senior U.S. senator, Democrat Mark Udall, is a big pot backer himself, having served a night in jail and anteed up a $300 fine after being busted for smoking a joint in 1972. But that hasn’t kept the political action committee of the Blue brothers–owned drone-maker General Atomics from giving “Udall for Colorado” $2750 last year.

Skeptics note that Udall has introduced a bill to limit U.S. domestic drones that is still working its way through Congress with many details remaining to be resolved.
