Re: “City to take on cannabis clubs, and more

For once and for all we shall set this case to rest. It's time. It's not in the job of any administration to selectively target anyone or any business (especially,, which was historically approved by the City of Colorado Springs Planning and Zoning Commission as well as the Colorado Springs City Council on April, 22nd, 2014)

Marijuana Meddling…

The kind and honest Lt. Mark Comte admits that is has not shown to be an issue in regards to calls for public saftey. Indeed we're the most likely place in the city NOT to have a problem. Bars, Subways, Banks, and 7-11s have shown statistically to be more likely to draw criminal activity.

U. Me. We. The Constitution.

Re: “City to take on cannabis clubs, and more

Thank you for your reporting, Bryce.

Re: “U.S. Cannabis Expo comes in June and more

Vendors and speakers: A+. Melissa Will and the Expo: F. By far the worst managed expo I've seen in 6 years. The organizers were amiture at best and fraudulently incompetent at the worst. From broken promises to empty halls, comments included, "poorly managed" "no keynote speaker support" "waste of time and money"

The U.S. Cannabis Expo did more harm than good to the industry. Tip of the hat to all the exhibitors and Keynotes, shame on the abject failure of the event owners.

From dirty floors to dirty event insults, this was the Expo that was a No Go. At no time in 12 hours did I see more visitors than venders on the event floor.

U.S. cannabis expo? it looked more like the U.S. Expo fraud.

Re: “Fashion and edibles mean Hype for Hemp and more

State sheriffs enforcing federal law is not as cut and dried as either side is making it out to be. Sheriffs do indeed enforce federal laws except in cases where the federal government has sole jurisdiction.

Re: “Fashion and edibles mean Hype for Hemp and more

Corrupt Law Enforcement Officials who prefer to ruin peoples lives over Marijuana possession rather than solve real crimes who fund their departments toys and salaries with monies acquired through Marijuana home raids, seizures and forfeitures, - Your Days Are Numbered. Find new careers before you don't have one.

Fear of Marijuana Legalization Nationwide is unfounded. Not based on any science or fact whatsoever. So please prohibitionists, we beg you to give your scare tactics, "Conspiracy Theories" and "Doomsday Scenarios" over the inevitable Legalization of Marijuana Nationwide a rest. Nobody is buying them anymore these days. Okay?

Furthermore, if all prohibitionists get when they look into that nice, big and shiny, crystal ball of theirs, while wondering about the future of marijuana legalization, is horror, doom, and despair, well then I suggest they return that thing as quickly as possible and reclaim the money they shelled out for it, since it's obviously defective.

The prohibition of marijuana has not decreased the supply nor the demand for marijuana at all. Not one single iota, and it never will. Just a huge and complete waste of our tax dollars to continue criminalizing citizens for choosing a natural, non-toxic, relatively benign plant proven to be much safer than alcohol.

If prohibitionists are going to take it upon themselves to worry about "saving us all" from ourselves, then they need to start with the drug that causes more death and destruction than every other drug in the world COMBINED, which is alcohol!

Why do prohibitionists feel the continued need to vilify and demonize marijuana when they could more wisely focus their efforts on a real, proven killer, alcohol, which again causes more destruction, violence, and death than all other drugs, COMBINED?

Prohibitionists really should get their priorities straight and/or practice a little live and let live. They'll live longer, happier, and healthier, with a lot less stress if they refrain from being bent on trying to control others through Draconian Marijuana Laws.

Here is a Marijuana Travel Guide and Information site. I find it useful, as do others. I agree this site stinks... no pun intended.

Re: “Help with moving to Colorado for cannabis, MMJ patient still suing and more

How do you contact Moving for Marijuana (213-0366) ? My family is in dire need of this new medical option. My wife has been on these dangerous M.S. medicines for too long. I have been an unpaid caregiver in Ohio for 3 years now unable to afford the move to Colorado. Hope someone can maybe lead us to getting assistance for this move. We have no support in Ohio, sent letters and made numerous calls to no momentum. Hope Bob Crouse too get what is his.

I have been using for about a year. They have deals on their site. I really have saved money this year in the Springs and Denver. I think they are based out of Denver or Boulder.

Re: “Couple says bank account closed for cannabis, gun group seeks new law and more

Am I wrong but banks period are not working with the pot stores. Its an all CASH business is it not? I really dont know but I thought thats what all the reports have been saying and why a State credit Union was being formed.

Odin wrote: "Sorry, but it is a federal law that a person who is an "unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana" cannot possess or purchase a firearm."

Correct. Title 18 US Code 922. While there are a couple methods of getting a concealed carry permit without having to touch a firearm, the issuance of a concealed carry permit does presuppose the possession of a firearm -- therefore, the state, by allowing the carry and therefore possession of a firearm, would be violating federal law.
