Re: “Get a life: Get a life

I'm actually taking a financial management class this semester in school. It's challenging, but I'm really learning a lot! Hopefully I do alright on my finale! www.churchillestates.net

Re: “CBDs: There's more to weed than THC

Today, 2.3 Million Americans live with epilepsy with more than 1 million of them experiencing uncontrolled seizures. CBDs (Cannabidiol) which are non-psychoactive have been proven to help reduce the frequency of these seizures.

Gevitta is working hard creating a legal CBD spray that is derived from HEMP. We are starting with a crowdfunding campaign set to launch shortly in order to raise the money needed for production as well as further studies on the effectiveness of CBDs on other diseases.

Re: “What dog-lovers must know, and where they should go

You forgot Yucca Flats at Palmer Park (the off leash area, not the the chainlink dirt 'park') and the great meetup group Mutts Welcome: http://www.meetup.com/Mutts-Welcome/ .

Re: “What dog-lovers must know, and where they should go

You guys need to head up the pass more often. Woodland Park is the home of Big Dawg Ssndwiches, we are as dog friendly as the health department will let us AND a portion of profits go to local animal rescue groups. The sandwiches are amazing too!

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.

All of the business positions are essential to success. I know personally that accountants can save a lot of businesses especially in the early days. They are not given the respect that they are usually due. http://www.ashlandinsurance.com/services/personal-insurance/ a

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.
