Re: “City Council enacts MMJ zoning regs, ignoring Planning Commission

I thank god, I thank him for the grace that city council showed on the zoning meeting Dec. 14th, We are Lawfull Businesses, we deserve to be here. We might not ALL make it through the new Laws and regulations comming out by the State,
but Colorado Springs City Council respects ALL LAWFUL BUSINESSES (Legal in the STATE, we LiVe in the StaTe and are PROUD to live here). Thank you, Thank you....Thank you. We are here to stay...

Re: “Planning Commission recommends stricter MMJ regulations

I smell a class action lawsuit brewin. The dispensary owners here in the springs are friends, unlike all the other cities in Colorado. One dispensary might not have enough money to sue the city, but 60+ dispensaries together...well, thats a whole new story. I hope the city has enough money for that lawsuit. Each dispensary investment plus leases lost = $125,000 invest + $100,000 or more lease(not including grow space lease) x 60 dispensaries. Thats one hell of a lawsuit waiting. It morally wrong to invite in, state zoning rules, take our money, allow to have same zoning rules for state application, take more of our money, and then change everything and close us down w/no refunds.....its wrong. And we (dispensary owners) would have nothing left to do except sue the hell out of the city and hopefully get back something we invested.

Re: “Planning Commission may zone 69 MMJ centers out of business

AS a MMC owner that is directly affected and is one of the 69 centers in Jeparody; I am personally disgusted with the way the city planning and zoning comission allowed such a retroactive, vial piece of legislature be approved. They did not even allow us to speak. They had a chance to hear everyones perspective again to ensure they make the right decsions; but failed us. They had a chance to set a precedent and set the tone for the state. 400 feet was good enough BEFORE why is 1000 feet the magical number NOW!? This is fraud and is a "bait and switch" tactic used by the shifty Comission. It is no better than taking someones money for a car and then not delivering a car. They promised a license process and reasonableness; and then they zone us out retroactivly. We did nothing but do what they asked of us and that was register with the state, the city, and pay our fees. The state application said the city has the power to chose the zoning that suitable for thier district. CO springs decided 400 feet. Now the city plans to put 69 centers (roughly 41% of all centers in CO springs) out of business becuase they "FEEL" that 1000 feet is more reasonable. I WANT PROOF!!!!!!!! Shutting down 41% of any industry in a town in unamerican and will result in serious repercussions for all stakeholders. We were happy to jump to through the hoops for the sake of pleasing everyone. we were happy paying our taxes for a much needed defecit budget. But now you have just pissed us off for even allowing this change this late and the City council will spit in our faces if they pass this uneducated and unjust piece of ordinance.

They did not even allow us to speak. They had a chance to hear everyones perspective again to ensure they make the right decsions; but failed us. They had a chance to set a precedent and set the tone for the state; but failed us and took the easy road out. 400 feet was good enough BEFORE why is 1000 feet the magical number NOW!? This is fraud and is a "bait and switch" tactic used by the shifty Comission. It is no better than taking someones money for a car and then not delivering a car.

We did nothing but do what they asked of us and that was register with the state, the city, and pay our fees. The state application said the city has the power to chose the zoning that suitable for thier district. Thats why the state implemented that provision; just so that Cities that know whats best for them can decide the zoning ordiances. CO springs decided 400 feet. Now the city plans to put 69 centers (roughly 41% of all centers in CO springs) out of business becuase they "FEEL" that 1000 feet is more reasonable. I WANT PROOF!!!!!!!!

Do the right thing please City Council!! Dont make the same mistake!!!

Re: “Town hall scheduled to discuss local MMJ ban

I'm a dispensary owner in Colorado Springs and I only opened a dispensary to help the community and pay TAXES. Colorado Springs looks like it is falling apart. No money for parks, roads, street lights and no jobs. Last year the city had to sell off 2 police helicopters. It would be ridiculous for Colorado Springs to shut down yet another major source of city income. There are roughly 75 dispensaries in Colorado Springs and all are making money and pay taxes EVERY month. We are happy to do so. We pay electricians, plumbers, security, utilities, & leases. 95% of all money is pumped right back into Colorado.

Its really messed up that a city in the big STATE of Colorado can choose not to uphold 1 admendment of the Constitution of Colorado. Can we now pick and choose what we want to follow in the constitution of Colorado and what we don’t? Sounds like trouble later
On another note: HB1284- All cities will have the right to vote to ban dispensaries. Just like everything else. Get enough signatures and anything can be on the balllot.
