Re: “Springs Dreams, seeking investors, PTSD, and more


 A new ONLINE confidential user-friendly therapy program at reduces anxiety, stress and other symptoms of PTSD and traumatic stress causes by combat conditions, domestic and sexual violence. Most users are less anxious, calmer, more relaxed after 1-3 sessions. There is no therapist. The user interacts with an interactive program developed for online use that doesn't require a therapist

Relief lasts. Traumatic memories fade. There's no registration. No personal information of any kind is required to use the program. University of Cincinnati research showed stress reduction of 61.5% after program use on personal computers.

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

Dont mean to be negative nancy but the marijuana dispesing game legit wise is terribly expensive, license fees upon rules and regulations, taxes the list goes on and on. Laws are meant to be followed, wanna sell marijuana/hash? Get a license to sell marijuana like the other 900 or so licensed dispensaries in the state. Dont cut corners- get license- period. I will say A64 club is the one needle in the haystack. And should be the ideal model for clubs across the state. At least they follow the rules and have been since they opened, kudos to that!!

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

A64 is legit, the other clubs are selling marijuana, no packaging requirements, no oversite, no grow requirements, no hash production requirements, nothing that all the dispensaries have to follow as far as rules and reggulations. No license fees and you CAN be a felon. So so soooooooo unfair to the people really trying to play by the rules(dispensary owners). I hope he does crack down, this has gone on wayyyyy too long, there is a reasin the clubs
are banned in other cities

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

I find it especially appalling that the Mayor refused to comment to the public about his plans. The top public servant refuses to explain himself to his Masters. I propose a new law… one that requires every public employee who draws their paycheck out of the public coffers to wear a butler/maid uniform. Maybe we all need a constant visual reminder of what their job title actually is beneath all the legal mumbo-jumbo.

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

Is there no place left where a person is simply free to peacefully do as they please as long as they do no harm to others? I'm really curious what problem the mayor is hoping to fix with a new set of laws regulating social clubs. I've had many great nights at StudioA64 and never once did I have the feeling that it would have been better if only there were a couple more laws regulating our voluntary interactions with one another.

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

I actually expected the mayor to pull something like this. I give my full support to the cannabis clubs and cannabis community of Colorado Springs. I have been helped tremendously by the cannabis community and the clubs in particular. They are not only a safe place to go and enjoy the company of friends while medicating they have been a big supporter of the cannabis refugees. I have even been at risk of having my electricity turned off and the Speakeasy held a fundraiser to keep it on. Members of the 420 Speakeasy has helped me with medicine when I have been out and The A64 club has always included me in all events and treated me like family. As the old saying goes,"If something isn't broke don't try to fix it. The cannabis clubs are operating as they should be, benefiting the community while educating on the benefits of cannabis and fighting to end prohibition. I see no reason for the mayor to interfere and try to make changes to an already wonderful industry.

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

Mr. Stark's Studio A64 Cannabis Club has helped me tremendously. My family came here from Texas as Cannabis Refugees to to save my life from epilepsy. Studio A64 was the only place that I could medicate legally, since we were staying in a hotel. I could not medicate in the hotel, or in the parking lot, or even sit in our car in parking lot to medicate, without breaking Colorado Laws on Public Cannabis Smoking, and DUI. Studio A64 gave me a safe place to medicate, relax, and enjoy myself after having 10-50 seizures daily in Texas, I am now 51 days Seizure Free on Cannabis in Colorado Springs. Studio A64 is a MUST HAVE in Colorado Springs, so we can have a safe, relaxing place to enjoy recreational Cannabis or Medicinal Cannabis, without breaking your laws!

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.

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.
