I have a marijuana felony(12 years old, possession of a pound) and I just built a business from scratch after going through a bankruptcy. A very good business I have paid over $60,000.00 in sales tax to the State in the last year but now I cannot be trusted to do so. Because now of this representatives whims I am put out of business and told to go back to second class jobs, is this really helping me rebuild my life sir? The State forcing me out of business how is this just. The State Constitution says once a Felon has completely discharged their sentence all rights of a citizen of Colorado are restored to them. The only amendment to that is that they cannot carry a firearm after the Brady Bill was passed. Before the Brady bill they could even carry guns. Thank God they have not taken away our right to vote yet. All you Conservatives, libertarians, constitutionalists where are you, why are you letting this happen to small business? Is it because it goes against your moral compass? it's funny how many of you look away when the rights of others are trampled, but cry out when you are attacked. The constitution includes all of us!
