Re: “Eating vegan and vegetarian in Colorado Springs

I think it is very telling that this large city has no truly Veg or Vegan restaurants. Of course, we are not known for our great food scene.

Re: “Camp Guide 2011

Summer camp does bring back some memories. I liked that you included camps that used scholarships. Zip lining and rock climbing sound like great summer camp activities. I didn't have those when I went to camp. Sounds fun.

Re: “Colorado cornucopia

There does seem to be a large selection of food and drink besides the restaurants. I love visiting local farmer's markets. There is nothing like fresh, home grown fruit and veggies.

Re: “Is marijuana smoking really smoking when it's vaporizer steam?

Look we have ecigs and you have vape pens for hash and marijuana. Are the people goingto start getting harassment from police officers over speculation. If they're not sure just leave it alone. I think if there's a car accident or something of that nature then there's cause for alarm. But it seems like ecigs are the thing now and consumption of regular cigarettes may just possibly become obsolete.

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.
