Re: “CannaBiz: Amendment 64 gaining steam

If Obama sends Attorney General Holder to Colodaro to oppose Amendment 64, he's really risking losing the swing state in the 2012 election.…

Re: “CannaBiz: Another try for PTSD

PTSD treatment for Veterans found ineffective.

Eli Lilly made $65 billion on the Zyprexa franchise.Lilly was fined $1.4 billion for Zyprexa fraud!
The atypical antipsychotics (Zyprexa,Risperdal,Seroquel) are like a 'synthetic' Thorazine,only they cost ten times more than the old fashioned typical antipsychotics.
These newer generation drugs still pack their list of side effects like diabetes for the user.All these drugs work as so called 'major tranquilizers'.This can be a contradiction with PTSD suffers as we are hyper vigilant and feel uncomfortable with a drug that puts you to sleep and makes you sluggish.
That's why drugs like Zyprexa don't work for PTSD survivors like myself.

Re: “CannaBiz: Altitude Organic's new spot

The laws regarding cannabis were born on the wings of lies and pampered by propaganda such that now the tightly held belief systems are going to have to reckon with the desire of all humanity to live with dignity, free from the oppressive tyranny that ignorance and bigotry have spawned.

These laws subject our citizens to not only danger, but degradation. These barbarous acts have outraged my conscience and the conscience of many of my fellow citizens. I vow to NOT live in fear of the oppressive tyranny but to confront it at it's source. I will enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear.

Sincerely, Dan Richeson…

Re: “CannaBiz: MMJ passed in Pueblo

To Mr. Cordova, and those who think using cannabis/marijuana, in a fashion similar to alcohol for the mere pleasure of it, is abusing the plant I say hogwash. Stop thinking like this!!! If you have a couple of beers, a glass of wine or two, or some other alcoholic beverage is it abusing alcohol??? Then apply the same to cannabis/marijuana. The use of it, does not constitute abuse.

Marijuana is safer then most of the things we consume for medical or recreational purposes. The mindset that has been created by the lies we have been fed by our government, and anti-drug groups, needs to be dispelled, and changed to the truth.

Please take the time to read about all of the facts about marijuana on sites like:…………

Yes, you can find sites supporting both sides, but the majority of the sides against cannabis/marijuana are feeding you the same line of balderdash that has been purported to make criminals out of U.S. citizens, with people of color being the major target.
Don't believe me, look for the truth and you will find it.

Re: “CannaBiz: Feds zero in on Westside Wellness

I hear to hear when an MMJ shot gets shut down. I will have to say that the last time I visiting W Side Wellness the prices were sooooo high (no pun intended) that I never returned...

Still a blast to the MMJ community and the people W Side Wellness served.

I can tell you a few I'd like to shut down! Jus sayin....

Re: “CannaBiz: Second wave from the Fed

SM, you went farther than needed in your statement. I am concerned about all American citizens rights, and freedoms.

Our government has continually written laws that impede our rights, and freedoms.
Most of it without our knowing, or approval. We need to, as the people, take a firm stand with our representatives, and demand they start working the other way, and get rid of all the bs legislation that has been put forth over the years that is an affront to our liberty.
It has gotten way out of hand.

As for big government, I cannot say that I trust either of the two major parties.

I have historically voted Republican, but am becoming more, and more disappointed in the Republican parties stance against marijuana legalization. I am also concerned with Romney being more like a taliban president. In that I mean taking a stance against marijuana, as he seems to be, based on his religious beliefs, instead of the truth about marijuana.

Will we be better under Obama, Romney, or somebody else? I can't answer that, but my vote is going to carry a heavy weight, as it will for many, based on the position the candidate takes on ending the prohibition of marijuana.

Which would be better for business? Probably Romney, but that is not going to get him a vote from me. I have barely been able to keep my head above water under both republican, and democrat administrations. This is how it is for many of us. So we might as well push for our freedoms, as we always should.

Re: “CannaBiz: Second wave from the Fed

Mr C: It might appear that I "jump on the case of any person ... who dares to criticize a Republican..." because, at the Indy, most posters slant liberal. However, if your memory was as big as your head, you would surely remember that I have oft criticized GW for the big spender he was. (You might also ask Rabbit if my post constituted a 'jumping on the case'.) No one can deny the FACT that Obama has outspent all previous presidents combined (in just three years). As to your statement "we must take it to the streets", I am a Libertarian not an anarchist. But, you and your fellow nimrod "occupiers" have at it.

Re: “CannaBiz: Second wave from the Fed

smartestman, you are very quick to jump on the case of any person in this blog who dares to criticize a Republican politician without adding the proviso that Democrats are no better. It is as if you are trying to promote a fairness doctrine, such as broadcasters are no longer required to do by law.

But it does not go both ways, does it? Here you criticize Obama as a big government politician, as if the Republicans will actually shrink the federal government. Sure, they always say they will, but can you name a single, solitary Republican president who actually did reduce the size of the federal government?

History has taught us if we want something we cannot rely on politicians. We must take it to the streets.

Re: “CannaBiz: Second wave from the Fed

Rabbit - If you are truly concerned about your rights and freedoms relative to cannabis as well as just about everything else in your life, you will join me in denouncing any big government candidate. And, just as a reminder, Mr. Obama is about as big government as they come.

Re: “CannaBiz: Second wave from the Fed

The continued prohibition of cannabis is ignorant at best, and dangerous to our freedoms, and rights as an American citizen.

Re: “CannaBiz: The rejected MMCs

The DEA is the problem. Its not like Obama can tell them not to enforce the law. and neither could he advocate or even hint at the idea of legalizing it federally especially with the ridiculous behavior of the GOP .
Do you really believe they wouldnt have started a fire storm over Obama wanting to legalize MJ , had he announced that? They would have reignited the 80s and 90s war on MJ
A plethora of lies of how Obama is trying to get your children high and so on..It would have given them awesome ammo against him and Dems --those most likely to legalize .

Not wanting to give Obama a free pass , lets wait and see what happens should he win another term. He wont have to worry about elections because he cant run again. THIS would be the time to put the pressure on . See what he does.

Re: “CannaBiz: Plant count problems

@Wendy....I highly recommend Strawberry Fields. We are going there now, after Natural Remedies, and they really serve us well. We let them know what our needs are, and they do their utmost to provide. They have some very good quality herb. Give them a try.

Re: “CannaBiz: Plant count problems

Colorado LOST big time when they ran Natural Remedies away. Colorado LOST Brandy Bowen because their ever-changing, seldom understood REGULATORY REGURGITATION had to continue to try to screw patients. I LOST big time. I lost my caregiver. The little the state has left the patient in the way of a caregiver at all. She's gone. We patients are left with nothing, no one who knows what we need, no one who tries to grow what we need, no one who wants to make decent homemade candies. NO ONE. So just pick a dispensary now. That's what I did. Out of the phone book. Who knows how long it will take ME THE PATIENT to reach the point of the new caregiver being able to actually recommend what's needed. The regulatory need to quit regurgitating and get some knowledgable people in and make some regulations that make sense and quit trying to measure the amount of water vapor that disappears between the grow site and the dispensary each day. Too much nit picking. Not enough leadership at the top.

Re: “CannaBiz: Sad story at Natural Remedies MMJ

This is a great injustice on the courts record. To deny medicine to a person who needs it, just because you have some archaic attitude toward it, does not justify your actions.
This is tyranny, and fascism in action. Vote those out who do not represent us.

Re: “CannaBiz: Cardholder's son questioned in school

We need our elected officials to do something to protect us as citizens from these ignorant prohibitionist minded people, that includes those in the school administration. Take names, and do all you can to put them out of a job.

Has a school principal asked if anybody in your house takes other medications recommended or prescribed by a licensed physician? They should not be asking our children about our personal lives, medical conditions, or what medications may be used.
This is clearly overstepping into the lives of patients, and parents.
