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

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?

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

Tannim I dont think its the DOD doing the complaining never really has been its our city leaders trying to use the Army Post to keep pot out of our nice clean cut city. I think I threw up a little after reading what I wrote. But truth is we heard the same BS when we voted for Medical weed and we have heard it over and over again. The sky is falling, the Army will leave, we will have Zombies and they still havent figured it out. Pots been here longer then he has, everywhere the Army is stationed theres pot. I bet there was pot at the Pentagon when he was walking the halls. But hes the leader of the Colorado Springs Justice league he will make sure no one smokes a joint in a private club all while proclaiming freedom and liberty for all over a Martini at his favorite private club.

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

"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."

Thus proving that the DoD's hysterical freak-out over legalization was nothing more than their own blowing smoke, as most of us already knew. They even admit it in this article:

"Whatever's legal in a city or state doesn't matter."

In other words, it always about the mission, not the location. Old news to most of us, but apparently lost on City Council in their myopic cluelessness.

Knight would be smart to end his windmill tilting, since the overturn of Council's opt-out is not only inevitable, but coming sooner than everyone thinks. The Old Guard is heading out the door, and they don't even see it coming.

Re: “Cannabis clubs mobilize, take on anti-marijuana legislation

I fail to see what the difference is between liquor stores where alcohol is sold retail and bars where alcohol is consumed and dispensaries where cannabis is sold retail and cannabis clubs where cannabis is consumed. Someone care to explain this to me?

Re: “Council wants cannabis clubs out; clubs dig in heels

I love republicans......they don't want government regulations and worship at the alter of unfettered capitalism---------UNLESS--------it's something they don't like.....then they want to regulate it out of existence. If I remember right......even the people of Colorado Springs voted for recreational weed. I guess you could call the majority of the city councilman-activist councilman- that ignor the will of the people.

Re: “Council wants cannabis clubs out; clubs dig in heels

People like Don Knight do not belong in an office that represents the people.
He is only representing himself.
As far as this "Olympic City" stuff goes-I moved here a little over a year ago and besides the little markers at the Costco I don't see anything Olympic about this city. Seriously- where is all this national stuff- This city looks like an old dusty mining town

Re: “Ex-cop speaks out on behalf of cannabis clubs

I agree. Regulate them. Don't shut them down. The clubs appeal to a small faction of the community. I don't think they are a treat to the health and well being of our citizens. I'm a member of one and frankly, I get bored because of lack of patrons. Even on weekend nights they are not well attended. For that matter, bars are more of a threat by the sheer numbers of them, comparatively. And, I don't see an outcry by citizens to limit the numbers of bars in town.
