doesn't matter what the people say the 5 igits on the council decide for everyone and they will lie to your face for a vote so......
Looking at just the people in this picture I wouldn't know it was Pueblo.
That's just silly.
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!!

just another reason NOT to vote because even when we "WIN" we loose because of all the underhanded B.S.
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.

also ole mister Capone was into much more than just alcohol so the comparison is unjust.
if you wont let the banks handle the business then you cannot say shit about taxes. you offer no service to pay taxes for.......what you want extortion money?
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.
They took settlements. They don't care if there's weed or not they just want a cut of the money.
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!
Agree with you 100% MALCOLMKYLE - I believe it is a lack of awareness and a refusal to learn which is pure ignorance - the stigma that has been created over the years clouds judgement - this is a process and it is a matter of time - We are headed in the right direction!
well holy crap that was well thought out!
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?
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.......
Ridiculous. Focus on the physically addictive drugs and the newer, less known synthetic drugs. Stop putting kids in an unescapable system over something that we, citizens&taxpayers, voted as legal. All this is about, is money.and control.
Jill Gaebler.. I'm sorry that common sense did not prevail on this. It may have been well intended, but goes way to far. As I read this, a teen in possession of a flower pot or potting soil would be a victim of the council's "reefer madness" paraphernalia ordinance.
Or gum wrappers, Bic pens, rolls of aluminum foil,...
Nothing brings out creativity like pot and nothing to smoke it with. Education on why they should wait until later in life to smoke cannabis would be money and effort better spent. I guess when the only tool you know how to use is a hammer every problem looks like a nail.
Does the include apples?
