Re: “With the recreational market open, does it make sense to be an MMJ patient?

Yes, if you are a Colorado resident and have a medical need, it is much better to be a patient. Back in 2008 when I first got my license, I had to go to Denver to find a doctor and clinic that advertised in the local gay paper to AIDS patients since there weren't any here in the Springs yet. Now, it is much easier, but your GP still won't sign for this license, so you have to go to one designated for MMJ. Stupid crap still today, and still no rights given like the right to work and not be fired for MMJ off of work hours.

(Or, if you're new to the scene, to pay a roughly $90 doctor's visit fee and $15 registration fee to get a red card, or not?) Brice, my doctor's fee was only $55 to go to a registered MMJ doctor thru my clinic, and the State MMJ fee is now $35 not $15.

"Are you kidding me" Not sure where you have been, but there are plenty of links regarding the "breach" not to mention at least 2 protests in 2013 regarding the subject. Do a google search on it.

Oh, and there was no "registry breach" Please post a link to this information, if you can.

Re: “With the recreational market open, does it make sense to be an MMJ patient?

One correction to Cliff's tax exemption comment. Although the state will except the sales tax for those that are indigent patients, the City of Colorado Springs refuses to grant that exception. Tax exempt patients will be excepted from 2.9% of sales tax that is the state portion only. The city will collect all the money they can, especially from the poor and the sick. Seems wrong to me, but hey that is how our city works.

Despite the recent Registry breach, if you a true patient, keep your Redcard! With it, you also have protection under Amendment 20 with Affirmative Defense, plus, all of the above benefits mentioned in this article. :)

Re: “2013: North restaurants

Silver Pond Chinese is awful. We recently went there with a large party and it took 2 1/1 hours to get our food. I wanted to walk out, but the others in my group hoped we would get served soon. Food came out slowly & sporadically and service was non existent. Soup was lukewarm at best, we had to take our own silverware from another empty table, we cleared our own table - and after waiting 20 minutes initially when we sat down, we helped ourselves to our own menus. At the end of the meal after being at the restaurant for over 3 hours, we spoke with the manager about our very unpleasant dining experience and asked for compensation. She was willing to take off the price of 2 appetizers from a $200 bill, which was almost nothing, an insult. Any other restaurant that values their customers would have made a greater effort to satisfy 3 families, rather than send them away unhappy. After much negotiation back & forth, she wound up taking $30 off the bill, which we felt was still not enough considering the terrible experience we had. We will not be back.

Since you are capable of posting messages here, UCanSeeClearlyNow, why don't you just tell us what is on your mind, instead of whining and blaming The Independent.

Re: “The search goes on for answers to inequality in Colorado's schools

So when is the Independent going to run an article from those who did not think Amendment 66 was a good idea?

Outspent 10-1 they were still able to make their point to the voters - yet they get no voice here?

Shameful.

Re: “The search goes on for answers to inequality in Colorado's schools

Let's back up for a moment, TejonTech. The subject is how to improve public schools.

You wrote, "...educate parents how to parent, how to offer a stable and healthy family system." Your proposed solution would entail hiring more teachers, social workers, and administrators; raising taxes to fund the effort; worst of all, empowering the government to define for private citizens what makes for a "stable and healthy family system." Perhaps the most absurd aspect of your solution is that it will take parents who often must work two jobs to make ends meet away from their children so they can be lectured on how they ought to spend more time with their children.

I wrote that raising the minimum wage would be a much simpler solution to the problem of giving parents more quality time to spend with their children, but you object that some shadowy person, or force, or entity whom you never identify "never intended" for minimum wage jobs to support families.

Re: “The search goes on for answers to inequality in Colorado's schools

Mr K...those jobs that pay minimum wage were never intended to be jobs that would support a family...that is why good parents and teachers tell you to get an education so you will have skills for which companies are willing to pay top dollar. If you have a minimum wage job it is probably because you diffed off instead of doing homework, did drugs instead of reading good books...and now want everyone to cover the cost of your misbehavior...sorry, survival of the fitness has kicked in...

Re: “The search goes on for answers to inequality in Colorado's schools

Raising the minimum wage would be a much more practical solution for working families struggling with poverty.

Re: “The search goes on for answers to inequality in Colorado's schools

The only thing that will fix our schools is to transfer the high salaries from administration to teachers...

Then to close our borders so we are teaching reading, writing, and arithmetic instead of English.

Then to educate parents how to parent, how to offer a stable and healthy family system...and require they get an education themselves instead of complaining that they can't raise their families on the wage they make as unskilled and uneducated people.

These figures are skewed. China only released test scores for students living in Shanghai. Their numbers do not reflect the entire country.

China #1 & USA ranked greater than 25th in the world in Educational test given to 15 year olds. I think we can do much better than this if we want to compete in the global market in jobs and such.
