Re: “More on El Paso County's marijuana ban

Ms. Clark - haven't we had enough of the war on drugs?

we have spent billions sending people to jail for possession of marijuana. We have thousands, if not millions of peoples lives ruined due to our drug war. But then maybe that's the whole purpose, instead of our legislators, city councilors etc seeing the positives of legalizing marijuana they continue to see the financial benefits of locking up the people who prefer marijuana to alcohol.

I am so tired of all of this crap - can't we move along, obviously we are going to have cannibis legalized within the next 20 years - why don't we be the first? stop banning what the people voted for.

Re: “More on El Paso County's marijuana ban

Give me a break Clark, you won't change your mind. Never. Ever. In a bazillion years.

But your hand will be out there grabbing all that Marijuana sales tax from sales made in the city limits won't it ? I didn't see a rider exempting sales made within the city limits from county tax.

Don't worry, we will just have to do things the way citizens do. Get signatures and override those representatives that fail to represent us.

Re: “Cannabiz: THC and driving (again)

The 5 nanogram limit is utter bs. This limit was imposed under the military piss test limit. It allows discovery of usage of pot up to 18 days after inhaling or consumption. So in effect they are stating you are impaired 18 days and should never drive a vehicle anytime after usage.

Those of us who have MMJ registry face a huge risk. How long before this registry is uploaded to the computer database of the Colorado Highway Patrol and local police cruisers?

We did the right thing. We registered ourselves to gain legitimate access to our medicine and this alone threatens us. Those who decided to continue to remain under the radar will never face such a risk.

Re: “Cannabiz: Grass groups galore

exciting news coming in from Hickenlooper's office and from Washington, DC. Regulations are coming for A64 lounges. as i learned in boy scouts. being prepared is the key to a long and healthy outing. studio A64 is in negotiations with city officials and the task force. this is going to be more fun than a can of fire and a grease pan.

Re: “Cannabiz: THC and driving (again)

Yes, it would fail us because if a MMJ patient is in an accident, the insurance companies will try to settle before any tickets are resolved and the patient will lose out on the settlement and be found neglegant. It has happened to me before with just an erronous fail to stop ticket that I shouldn't have been given, so what would prevent the insurance companies from saying that we are inpaired, and therefore, they don't have to pay our claims?

Re: “Cannabiz: THC and driving (again)

says Waller — his suggests a "permissive inference" limit. Basically, that means the accused would have the option of proving to the court why they weren't impaired

Guilty until proven innocent. The government fails us again...

Re: “Cannabiz: THC and driving (again)

if they already have impaired driving laws on the books, why on earth do we have to add another one?

The presumption that thc in ones system indicates intoxication is incorrect and has been proven an invalid measure already.

Leave it to the lawmakers to keep making laws... even if we don't need them.

Re: “Cannabiz: Troubles with state task force

I'm still waiting on my MMJ Patients Bill of Rights that states that I have the right to not be fired just for being a patient, the right to not be evicted just for being a patient, the right to drive my car and realistic standards for DUI, and the right to own a gun since I have never been convicted of a crime or institutionalized for mental illness. I am a tax paying American citizen and I deserve these rights! I was almost fired because I wrote a letter to the CS Indy. I don't go to work under the influence, but because they are a non-profit, they say they have to follow Federal Law. When is the Federal law going to match our State Amendment 20, and when are my State Reps going to give us these rights instead of just being concerned with the legalization and collection of the taxes and fees generated from this industry. It's time they stepped up and did their jobs! MMJ PATIENTS RIGHTS ARE NEEDED TODAY, NOT IN ANOTHER TEN YEARS!!!
