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.

Re: “County Commissioners to marijuana businesses: Green crosses have got to go

The Green Cross has got to go?!?! What a joke, people find reasons to poke and prod for whatever reason possible.. just so they can fuck with people over and over again, and make their lives miserable...but it's okay to have a Red Cross though, and give people a bunch of synthetic patented chemicals that have 10 - 15 side effects for each pill they give you, that will either make you want to kill yourself or kill you in the process....soo don't worry about that red cross, yaaaa...those green crosses are the ones we got to worry about!!

Re: “CannaBiz: Troubles with lawyers and MMJ

This is a going to be something of debate for many years to come. This has become a polarizing subject and it will probably get nasty before it gets better.

Re: “Federal Judge strikes down lawsuit against recreational marijuana

Its very well know the effects and dangers of pot have been overblown. The scientific community has known it for generations. Clear back in the 70s and 80s they wanted to give it to people with Cancer. Its MONEY pure and simple. Law enforcement, Prisons, our Government and Pharm. industry has made major money off it being illegal and still are. Its the hardest to smuggle and the easiest to bust and the most used. Without it on the list its hard to justify there budget's and keeps a lot of folks out of the Pharmacy. If the populace is scared of it they pay the Government to get rid of it. Think of the tax money spent to keep people in jail over something that dont cause injury to anyone. Its illegal and has stayed illegal because its profitable to those in charge of the laws.

Re: “Federal Judge strikes down lawsuit against recreational marijuana

They took settlements. They don't care if there's weed or not they just want a cut of the money.

Re: “Federal Judge strikes down lawsuit against recreational marijuana

Agree 100% MALCOLMKYLE I do understand how you feel - I believe it is a lack of awareness and a refusal to learn - this is pure ignorance - the stigma created over the years clouds judgement - it is a matter of time. We have come a long way and we are headed in the right direction. This is a huge victory!

Re: “Federal Judge strikes down lawsuit against recreational marijuana

Prohibitionists, you owe the rest of us answers to the following questions:

#1. Why are you not concerned with the fact that we have all been stripped of our unalienable rights, leaving us totally subordinate to a corporatized, despotic government and a heavily armed and corrupt, militarized police force whose often deadly intrusions into our homes and lives are condoned by an equally corrupt and spineless judiciary?

#2. Why do you wish to continue to spend $50 billion a year to prosecute and cage your fellow citizens for choosing substances which are not more dangerous than those of which you yourself probably use and approve of, such as alcohol and tobacco?

#3. Do you honestly expect the rest of us to look on passively while you waste another trillion dollars on this ruinously expensive garbage policy?

#4. Why are you waging war on your own family, friends and neighbors?

#5. Why are you so complacent with the fact that our once 'proud and free' nation now has the largest percentage of it's citizenry incarcerated than any other on the entire planet?

#6. Why are you helping to fuel a budget crisis to the point of closing hospitals, schools and libraries?

#7. Why do you wish to continue spending precious resources on prohibition related undercover work while rapists and murderers walk free, while additionally, many cases involving murder and rape do not even get taken to trial because law enforcement priorities are subverted by your beloved failed and dangerous policy?

#8. Why are you a supporter of the 'prison industrial complex' to the extent of endangering our nation's children?

Re: “City adopts penalties for underage possession of paraphernalia, D-11 releases marijuana offense stats

Judging from their actions, I would say that City leaders have no intention to honor the democratic process or the will of the voters in C. springs...... Other places are legalizing, decriminalizing, while this town recriminalizes. And Republicans like Gaebler are heading up the suppression effort, they all have "reefer madness" big time. Fortunately there is not much opportunity for them outside of El Paso County.......
