Re: “DEA's long-awaited rescheduling decision may be 'blessing in disguise' for reformers

Deschedule. Not reschedule.

Re: “DEA's long-awaited rescheduling decision may be 'blessing in disguise' for reformers

The DEA, media and others are misleading the public. - It is NOT necessary for marijuana to have ANY medical benefits to be removed from the list of scheduled drugs. Far more harmful alcohol and tobacco have no medical benefits and they are not on the list. - The president can simply DE-schedule marijuana through his Attorney General.

End the federal marijuana prohibition with two clicks!

Re: “Former employees speak out against accused "pot doc"

The cause of this niche business is the stupidity of making all marijuana dispensaries in some cities medical. It cost nearly half to shop at a medical shop with a card.
It's time to deschedule.
It's time to measure medical doses so patients can be sure they get consistent products.

Re: “Former employees speak out against accused "pot doc"

Doctors will not discuss the use of marijuana with patients. Unless someone is dying from cancer a primary care physician will not sign the paperwork for fear of Federal retribution on their prescription number. This has created a niche for what many will call a marijuana Dr. For over 10 years I talked to Dr.'s about pain management for my back and all them said just use it BUT I can't sign that paperwork.

While some of these Dr.'s are just signing paperwork they are consulting with the patient as required by law. Make no mistake that they are able to make money for signing their paperwork and see many patients in a day because a niche market has been created because they are the only Dr's willing to make the medical marijuana recommendation.

I don't approve of the price gauging for the visit, the charge for plant counts or not having proper ID. I do know I use the same Dr. every year for renewal and have discussed the medical records that I brought from my primary Dr and my MRI.

It is not the law that is racist it is the cops.

Respect the vote. How is smell more important than lives? The neighbors grill makes me sick every night! Why does the mayor want to make good citizens into criminals?

Re: “Marijuana industry cheats death with clever political tactic

Unfortunately, women have not got the chance of a snowball in hell of getting the right treatment -- even for a woman, never the individual.

What would truly be effective is treat people as individuals. Treat the person as well as the disease. Watching the VA treat my Uncle its like one size fits all.

Re: “Lamborn votes against vets' access to medical marijuana

I notice in all articles addressing effectiveness of any marijuana for any illness. Maybe the prescribing party (the VA) does not know that different KINDS OF MARIJUANA react differently. No. I've been to the VA. They do not read current literature.

I suffered from extreme anxiety coupled with occasional coronary vasospasm ending in heart attacks. Unable to eat food for three years. PTSD patients cannot have cannabis SATIVA. It can kill them. They need very heavy CBD strains that have little but SOME THC.

Too bad the people in charge (THE VA) don't know what to do. Just like the fallen Lamborn who chose to push a mule . Too bad it didn't take him 15 votes to get it done (haha)

I am ashamed of these clueless overlords.

Too sincerely,
Wendy Moore

Re: “Councilor Don Knight's anti-pot crusade

Yet another council member with a personal hatred towards Cannabis using his power and authority to push his personal agenda, and the Mayors...how much longer till the next vote?

Re: “Councilor Don Knight's anti-pot crusade

Interesting how many hundreds of manhours and thousands of tax dollars have been spent on this issue - and will yet to be spent. If I am not mistaken, marijuana regulation is again the subject of seven (7) agenda items on the upcoming informal council worksession.

For those who do not use marijuana, this is not an issue.

For those who do use marijuana, this is not an issue.

It has always been available, with good quality at reasonable prices. No problem has existed, no problem does exist and it is unlikely one will exist in the future.

Those who suffer may be those who truly receive benefit from medical marijuana and those who invested in the business thinking they could trust local government to abide by the process set up to allow them to be in business.

Revenue is not an issue. The press reports of late indicate an almost unlimited and explosive growth in the local economy is under way.

Re: “Councilor Don Knight's anti-pot crusade

quote:"Councilor Don Knight says military perceptions influence his strategy. "

quote:" So how are active military members, bound by federal law, affected by Colorado's legal marijuana? An Army report obtained by the Gazette earlier this year shows the number of positive drug tests for marijuana last year at Fort Carson dipped to 422 from 725 the year prior to legalization."


SO WHATS THE PROBLEM DON KNIGHT?
