Re: “CannaBiz: Legalization vote looms

As we have seen over and over again, medical marijuana patients will never be free until we end the WHOLE fraud of marijuana prohibition.

Thank goodness polls show public support for ending this horrific persecution of millions of good Americans has now passed 50 percent naionwide. It is near 60 percent in the Western states. - California (and perhaps a few other states) will likely re-legalize marijuana at the polls in November. --- This justice is WAY past due!

Re: “CannaBiz: Legalization vote looms

How wrong is it that the DA in our district is so closed minded that he is pressing charges on this cancer patient. It might be different if Mr Crouse was slinging weed out his back door, but that is clearly not the case here. It seems he was growing Medical Marijuana as medication for his cancer. Somebody needs to take action and get these DA clowns disbarred for abuse of power!

I'm writing a letter to the Colorado Bar Association today.
Here's the CO Bar Association email address:

or go right to the top like me:
Greg Martin Deputy Executive Director 303-824-5317

In Case of Dispute

If you have a complaint about a Colorado attorney [the DA] or judge or magistrate:

Colorado Supreme Court Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel
Call (303) 866-6410 or 1(877) 888-1370 to have your complaints against a Colorado lawyer considered and investigated.

Colorado and Denver Bar Associations Legal Fee Arbitration/Mediation Committees
Committees that handle disagreements between Colorado lawyers and their clients regarding lawyer fees. Call (303) 824-5371.

It is time to put a stop to the abuse from our local District Attorney , DAN MAY as well as the deputy DA's forced to execute his attack on Medical Marijuana.

The added stress of criminal charges can not be good for somebody trying to fight their cancer!

Re: “CannaBiz: Traffic collisions down in MMJ states

Remember the Rand study that showed crime rates to be lower in areas that had Medical Marijuana Centers? It was "pulled back for re-evaluation". Any guesses on how long it takes to do the same thing with this report?

Someday it would be nice if our government quit lying to us. Isn't our government supposed to be representative of the citizens? Something is really fucked up here.

Re: “CannaBiz: Upcoming MMJ study by CSPD

Didn't the previous chief state that there was no increase in crime related to the Medical Marijuana Dispensaries ?

Maybe if they do enough studies they can find something wrong.

They need to be investigating the increases in crime related to the Subway and Walgreens!

Re: “CannaBiz: What California could mean for Colorado

The feds sometime this year said they did NOT WANT LARGE SCALE GROWS, THEY DID NOT WANT 100s of acres to be put up for Marijuana grows. The California cities decided to go against the feds and what did the feds do?? I'm Gonna seize your lands! Everyone that got a letter have mega grows. and on that note of LARGE outdoor grows....lets just say you were lost on a back road in Cali and then out of no where you started seeing 15ft marijuana plants on both sides of the road...doncha think you would remember where you were, you might even tell some friends about this special road......HOW DO YOU REGULATE 100 acres of Marijuana??!! --That is the problem. LARGE SCALE GROWS.

Re: “CannaBiz: What California could mean for Colorado

1) EVERYONE that sees these links sign up at both sites and weigh in on the debate
2) Propagate those two links and ensure that everyone that sees them go to both those sites.

Too many people are blaming the President for enforcing the federal marijuana prohibition. Contact Congress (the LEGISLATIVE branch [that's the important one when it comes to law]) via the first link. Contact Obama (the EXECUTIVE branch [until Obama vetos a passed H.R. 2306 it's on Congress - but tell Obama anyway]) via the second link. It really is THAT easy. Participate in democracy!

Re: “CannaBiz: What California could mean for Colorado

So many attorneys in Colorado took payment and retainer from Marijuana Dispensary clients, telling them it's OK to proceed with their new business. No wonder it scares the crap out of attorneys, that now they will not be able to defend their clients. to keep track of the pot clowns in the 3 ring Colorado weed circus.

Re: “CannaBiz: What California could mean for Colorado

These 'fast & furious' gun-running Feds are not only guilty of perjury and murder but also of bankrolling ruthless criminals, international terrorists, right/left-wing paramilitaries and various death squads with their counter-productive, sado-moralist policy of Prohibition.

Colombia, Peru, Mexico or Afghanistan with their coca leaves, marijuana buds or poppy sap are not igniting temptation in the minds of our weak, innocent citizens. These countries are duly responding to the enormous demand that comes from within our own borders. Invading or destroying these countries, thus creating more hate, violence, instability, injustice and corruption, will not fix our problem. We need to collectively admit that we are sick. -- Prohibition is neither a sane nor a safe approach; left unabated, its puritanical flames will surely engulf every last one of us!

When we legally regulate something, (as opposed to when we foolishly attempt to prohibit something) we do NOT automatically condone it's use; the legal regulations concerning the sale and manufacture of alcohol and tobacco are there to protect us from the vast increase in criminality and mayhem that would otherwise surely exist if we were foolish enough to prohibit them.

When governments prohibit drugs they effectively and knowingly hand a monopoly on their sale to dangerous criminals and terrorists. Without a legal framework in which to operate, these black-market entities can always be expected to settle their disputes violently, while terrorizing many peaceful and innocent citizens in the process. Were the users of alcohol to blame for the St Valentines massacre in the US in 1929? Of course not! It is just as naive to assume that one can compel all the users of Marijuana or Cocaine to simply quit, as it is to assume that all the users of Alcohol should have stopped drinking after the introduction of alcohol prohibition in 1919.

Re: “CannaBiz: Update on city MMC applications

Every bud sold legally is one less sold illegally.
Banning supermarkets from selling legally-grown marijuana to adults is a BAD law that causes far more harm than good.

In the end parents have to decide if they want drug dealers selling marijuana to kids or supermarkets selling marijuana to adults. Protect your children - regulate marijuana like wine.

Re: “CannaBiz: Patient rights in trouble

Quick note: centers must verify that patients have not been denied via the CDPHE and that their physician has no restrictions on their license. The exemption to the 35 day rule only applies to new patients.

I think someone should file charges against the district attorney's office 4 practicing medicine without a license and attempted murder

Re: “CannaBiz: City Council and MMC fees

While AMCS respects the city council, we find the fees to be large and unjustified. America was founded on liberty, freedom and equal justice for all.

The fees are not proportional to the cost. Indeed, the city council received a record amount in quarterly sales taxes generated by the mmj industry. Over $62,000 to help clean and keep our parks, pay our police, firemen, and emergency services.

Re: “CannaBiz: CDOT's take on MMJ

CDOT does have a position. They made a good MMC friend of mine take down his billboard ON HIS PROPERTY. The issues an apology, but it was too late. They got Denver involved, and the sign was painted over.

Prescription Pill abuse is much more rampant, dangerous, and especially DEADLY than MMJ.

Re: “CannaBiz: MMCs find bank to take their accounts

Biotrackthc com seem to be addressing this subject via technology using a biometric swipe as a credit card. Biotrackthc is working with Matt Cook to stay ahead of the ever changing regs and credit card banking is a major subject matter. The CEO of Biotrackthc told me they hope to show the new credit card technology to Visa/MC by the end of next month.

Re: “CannaBiz: The newest on legalization

Thanks, Bryce! Good report. AMCS agrees with Jway.

Let's end prohibition, incarceration, prosecutions and treat marijuana like alcohol.
