Re: “Reader: Those of us for legal pot must accept the downsides

California legalized medical cannabis way back in 1996 over 22 years ago. In truth recreational consumers never had trouble getting a cannabis card and have been able to obtain herb easily. California officially legalized recreational cannabis November 2016. Retail sales of recreational cannabis went LEGAL January 1st 2018!!

Over 22 years of cannabis legalization and lo and behold California is by far the largest economic engine in the U.S. and just went from the 6th largest economy to the 5th largest economy in the world. California leads the planet in aerospace, high technology, agriculture, video and musical entertainment media and tourism. We host headquarters for numerous international corporate giants like Apple, Intel, Netflix, Lockheed, Paypal, Tesla, Oracle, Google, TRW, Rockwell International, Unisys, Yahoo, Disney, and AMD to name just a few. An average of over 250 million tourists visit California annually spending upwards of 100 billion dollars providing over a millions jobs. Other than that, in California we're just stoned slow and lazy!

The madness is over! Legalize, regulate and tax recreational cannabis!

Re: “Should Colorado Springs ban cannabis clubs? Tell City Council what you think tonight!

Employees at any establishment should never be exposed to secondhand smoke of any kind. It is clear that cannabis smoke is far less dangerous than tobacco but that being said employees need a safe workplace. edibles and vaporization should be given the same facilities as alcohol.
