Re: “CannaBiz: A concert for 64

In my well versed opinion the legal protections offered to patients, as well as citizens over 21 are significant.

Anybody over 21 is allowed to grow up to 6 plants.
All Marijuana from these 6 plants can be kept on the site where it was grown.
You can legally transport 1oz anywhere you want within the state.
1-2 ounces remains a petty offense for 18 years old and up.
Adults that don't grow can purchase from a retail sales store.

How is that not good ?

Does it allow you to grow a bazillion plants in your basement, then sling the your product on the streets unregulated ? No. That is why people are against it.

Re: “CannaBiz: A concert for 64

yes_on_64, you are so funny. The more you say - the more obvious it becomes that you know less. I don't have to lie, silly, funny drug dealer. I can read. : )

FACT: The number of active patients on the Colorado medical marijuana registry rose from May to June, finishing just shy of 100,000 patients.

FACT: At end of May, the CDPHE had processed 180,925 new patient applications.

FACT: Current number of Red Card Holders as of 99,960.

FACT: Before Amendment 20 and Caregivers - the black market control the price - today the price has dropped from over $500 and ounce to as low as $150.

Now, let's all have a laugh, a cup of coffee and go thank your local MMJ Ganjaprenuers.

I don't have to lie - I can read, silly.

Re: “CannaBiz: Impacts of an Amendment 64 win

Also, many of GoGreen's "Facts" are lies.

There are only 98,000 MMJ patients in Colorado, but he is saying there are "100,000s". He says A20 has "decimated the black market". There is no marked difference in the black market from MMJ. He is a liar. Then the rest of his comments are the typical "be afraid, shake, quiver, and be a coward."

They will lie to anyone and everyone because this is about protecting profit, gouging patients, and extending prohibition. Please do not buy into the lies and the cowardice of people fighting against 64. They are motivated by greed. They know the price will drop and the selection will increase if A64 passes, and patients will no longer be willing to be ripped off by the dispensaries. If you are a patient, you have a lot to gain.

Vote YES on A64.

Re: “CannaBiz: A concert for 64

GoGreen continues to spam. Do not buy into the fear. He is only protecting profits. He doesn't care about patients.

A64 does NOT change A20. A 64 does NOT affect MMJ laws. Patients win with A64.

Voting YES on A64 is the right thing to do. It is the moral thing to do. The only people who want you to vote against are profiting from the black market.

"Loaded guns", "bears will get you". GoGreen wants you to vote based on irrational fear and cowardice. It is all meant to scare you. With A64, patients will have far better prices, a far better selection, and hundreds of thousands of recreational consumers protecting access. Patients win with A64.

Re: “CannaBiz: A concert for 64

>>A64 does not negatively affect patients.

A64 is a loaded gun pointed at the heart of Colorado's Medical Marijuana Act and Amendment 20.

FACT: Amendment 20 is the crown jewel of Medical Marijuana in America. And Colorado is the king of all Medical Marijuana in the world.

FACT: Amendment 20 has protected 100,000's of American's for over 12 years.

FACT: Amendment 20 has done more to change prohibition in America than any other act in the last 80 years.

FACT: Amendment 20 has created over 800 small businesses and employs thousands of Americans, has decimated the black market, and added millions of $ to local and State budgets.

A64 is an invitation the FEDS to crackdown on ALL marijuana and potentially force the FEDS and the Supreme Court to rule both A64 and A20 illegal under federal law. Can anyone say, hello (again) to the black market?

>>What will change is that the public access will create cheaper prices, larger selection, and protected access for patients.

Now that is funny. : ) It was patients, caregivers and centers that have created safer access, better meds and a price drop from $500 an ounce in 2009 to less than $150 an ounce today of Colorado Proud MMJ.

You are hilarious, really. When was the last time you found 75 plus strains to select from on the black market? Patients, caregivers and centers have created America's most widely respected and regulated market for marijuana ever known to man.

>>Voting YES on 64 will have numerous....(blah, blah, blah)...

A64 may pass. The lobbyist have the money. I'm simply saying that history and current federal laws are not on our side.

His answer was sharp and cold, "We don't poke the bear."

A64 not only pokes the bear, it spits in the face of the FEDS and the Supreme Court.

GoGreen, and those he represents who profit from the MMJ medicine monopoly, are promoting fear and hyperbole to protect the inflated profits of the MMJ industry. It is not to benefit patients. A64 does not negatively affect patients. There is nothing in the amendment that changes MMJ. What will change is that the public access will create cheaper prices, larger selection, and protected access for patients.

Voting YES on 64 will have numerous positive benefits. When we all can consume legally, access will have the backing and protection of hundreds of thousands of consumers. Patients become stronger than ever. Do not buy into the irrational fear.

Poke the bear (FEDS), and the bear will come. Action reaction. It is proven in daily news briefs.

This is not fear. It is reality. Protect A20 - VOTE NO on A64.

A20 is the crown jewel of medical marijuana in America and had ended prohibition in more ways than any other measure in the last 80 years in the USA.

A20 works. A64 is a great idea of lobbyist and lawyers, but it could be the beginning of the end of A20 and force a federal crackdown on ALL marijuana in Colorado.

Re: “CannaBiz: A concert for 64

>>The person posting (blah, blah, blah)... in Colorado pay the same price California dispensaries are paying today.

Colorado is already paying the price, silly. That's the point.

You read but don't understand. Sad. Maybe if you call caregivers and centers greedy cowards, we can all laugh again. : )

>>A64 does not affect medical marijuana in Colorado. A64 does not change A20. Please read the amendment.

FACT: The crackdown in Cali and Colorado came after lobbyist started 'poking the bear' with A64 and Prop 19.

A20 is the only protection Colorado has that has proven effective.

>>People like GoGreen are advocating to continue prohibition

A20 for all practical purposes ended prohibition in more ways than ANY OTHER effort in the last 80 years.

>>in order to protect the MMJ industry's profits.

Profits? Oh yes, we're all millionaires. That's why most centers are run by the owners. They are making so much money they just can't take a day off. You really are funny. :)

>>Patients have the most to gain from A64.

A64 is the greatest threat to A20 and patients. More even then the FEDS.

A20 has protected patients for over 12 years.

A64 will force the feds to react. It's what they do.

>>but it is very expensive to buy due to the risks involved in the black market.

A64 is an open door to the black market. A64 is the black market.

>>Dispensaries have been taking advantage of the hyper-inflated price markup to gouge patients.

'hyper-inflated?' you almost sounded smart...almost.

'gouging?" silly, almost every center I know GIVES patients meds with almost every purchase. You really are funny. : ))

Thanks to A20, centers, patients and caregivers - COLORADO HAS THE LOWEST PRICES FOR MARIJUANA in the USA. The price has dropped from over $500 an ounce in 2009 to as low as $150 at centers and even less with some caregivers.

>>Currently, dispensaries are gouging patients because the only other choice is the black market.

Okay, no stop. We can hardly stop laughing.

Where are meds better and less? The center? or the black market?

The answer is easy - at your locally licensed, safe and respectable MMJ Center.

>>With A64, the patients have the most to gain.

You seem very Karl Rovian. Say something over and over at it will be true.

Not the case, funny man. With A64 patients have everything to lose.

A20 centers, caregivers and growers are the only thing protecting patients.

Where were you when it came time to step up, be counted and risk everything to provide marijuana to patients?

A64 is a loaded gun pointed at the crown jewel of Colorado's MMJ model.

>It is about protecting profit. Patients have nothing to fear, and everything to gain.

A20 and Colorado lead the world in MMJ development and research. We may even be finding cures for cancer. It's truly historic and amazing.

I work with a charity that DONATES very expensive cann oils to cancer patients in dire need.

Key word, charity. Non-profit. No money. No greed. Just amazing research and life saving work. But hey, go ahead - call me greedy and I'll laugh it off. : )

>Adults will be able to produce reasonable amounts for person use.

Adults already do. It's called Amendment 20.

>It will provide a larger selection and cheaper prices for patients.

Already rebuffed that (over and over again.)

>The only people who stand to lose are the people profiting from the current black market; people like the ones GoGreen is fighting for.

Every time you say 'black market' the whole office staff laughs. : )

We are so far from the black market, silly.

>They do not care about the patients,

No, we just get up every day, work 50+ hours a week, protect amendment 20, donate money and start over each week.

A20 is the only thing that has proven results. It is also a very fragile and brilliant model for the rest of America.

>Everyone wins expect people profiting from the current black market.

You said 'black market' again. : )

>Everyone benefits from A64.

The only one that benefits will be the black market when the FEDs come and the Supreme Courts comes after A64 and A20.

The black market may be all that you have left...

Price gouging? Centers? Dude, you have no idea. Sad but true.

What was the price of MMJ before the boom of 2009? Over $500 an ounce in many parts of the State.

Today, because of A20, patients, caregivers and centers that price has dropped to as low as $150 for top shelf Colorado Proud bud in many centers.

Re: “CannaBiz: Impacts of an Amendment 64 win

>Patents will have larger selection and cheaper prices if A64 passes.

For a person that claim to live in Colorado, you certainly know little about selection, market prices and development.

The price of marijuana only declined after A20 and patients and centers flourished. In less than 36 months, the price has gone from $70 an 1/8th to less than $20 at many store.

The price of marijuana declinded because of A20, patients, caregivers and centers. It's just a market reality.

Selection? Do you really live in Colorado? I know one center that has over 75 strains in just one store.

Indeed, it has been the MMJ industry, growers, caregivers and owners that have advanced the studies of higher quality marijuana than has ever been tested. New labs, non-profit and research companies have developed in Colorado to support this work. It's amazing, really. Colorado now leads the world in medical marijuana development. No other State or nation even comes close.

Remember what it was like before MMJ? No selection. High prices. Dangerous in countless ways.

A20 has changed all of that. A64 is a fine idea in a perfect world. But that is not the case.

A64 may pose be the greatest threat to Colorado'd MMJ industry we've seen in over 12 years.

See links above. Nothing irrational about reality.

>Patients have a lot to gain from A64. Dispensaries are trying to scare patients in order to protect profits. Patients have more to gain from A64 than just about anyone.

A64 could force the FEDS to end A64 and A20 in one easy sweep. Hesk, all they need is a stamp and a letter to a landlord to do it.

A64 puts at risk everything patients, growers, caregivers and city councils have fought for in the last 12 years.

Anyone that has a casual understanding of the Supreme Court and Federal law knows that A64 does not protect anyone - it simply pokes the bear.
