Re: “Let voters decide, stormwater task force says

In 2009 we paid a storm water fee based on the estimated water run-off from your property. The city collected millions. What happened to the money? Why wasn't the storm water system repaired with that money? Do be taken in again. Vote NO on 2E.

Re: “Let voters decide, stormwater task force says

Do not be fooled. The $5 monthly fee added to your utility bill seems innocent enough, but the city can raise that fee any time to any amount for any length of time.

Re: “UPDATE: New website blasts El Paso County Sheriff Elder

It's the DA's office that's corrupt. Dan May went after Maketa, Presley and John San Agustin for one reason: He didn't want Evan Ebel memory or any of the 211 gang coming after him. Instead of recusing himself or moving to another state, May wanted to bring down anyone who wanted to bring down the 211ers. But San Agustin was like a dog on the scent and Maketa wanted him to be free to follow every lead no matter the consequence. The Texas Rangers had ID'd a dozen 211 gang members that likely helped Ebel but Dan May wanted nothing of it. So as of March 2016, May and ass't DA Shannon Gerhart, who likely perjured herself, got the grand jury to indict San Agustin. It was however, Shannon Gerhart, who had signed the arrest warrant for Kelli McMahan then told the grand jury San Agustin "kidnapped" (arrested) her! WHAT?
Number one, John DIDN'T arrest her. But if he had, there was a valid "arrest warrant" issued by an officer of the court (Gerhart), so does a valid arrest mean it's a kidnapping? I guess the DA's office can prosecute any cop for kidnapping, if he or she arrests anyone.
Number two, John was nowhere in sight when Kelli was carted off to the poky.
Number three, a simple check of John's ID card and times he entered and exited were easily determined, but Gerhart chose to lie to the grand jury.
As a reward (?) Shannon is now appointed to a district judgeship by Gov. Hick, good friend of Evil Ebel's dad. If I didn't know better, I'd think this was Chicago c. 1920 - present.
In the end May and Gerhart should be in jail. San Agustin will win his $10M lawsuit and I just wish Gerhart and May did some hard time.

Re: “Two El Paso County jail inmates die in last two days

Why didn't they take him back to Memorial hospital, 2 miles from C.J.C. is just as close to the hospital as it is to the jail. How and what did they think they could do for him in their sally port??? And why would the doctors release him if he wasn't ok at that point??? Come on...

Re: “UPDATE: Marijuana: Local delivery company raided by police

They buried that story. More lives ruined by the cops then they ever would have done selling some weed in a legal state. Look at Denver craigslist now that shit is everywhere. This whole ordeal was fucking pathetic on the DA and the cops.

Re: “Goat Cheese: A love-hate kinda thing

Next time you stop at Ringo's Market, ask if they have any of their home made pepperoni. Paired with the hard goat cheese, it is AMAZING. Also, the ricotta that is made by Zubal and Philpott dairies can take your lasagna game to the "World Class" level.

Re: “Tennessee man says quality of Colorado Springs weed 'is an absolute fraud'

Same problem in other states,like Az. The dispensary weed doesn't even resemble black market weed. It looks the same, thats about it. Im not even picky. When I sold weed, I smoked the shake and smallest popcorn, and sold the rest. I didn't care if it was cured, tasted great even fresh. But now,after hanging my "drug dealer" hat up, I simply cannot smoke 95% of legal dispensary bud. I know the smell of grow chemicals so well now, my head has an instinctual "get that out of my body" shaking reaction upon smelling most dispensary bud.

Anyone defending the corporate weed scene gets pissed when you try to tell them the bud is wack. How does a imaginary Thc rating relate tp quality? Is Gem Clear better than expensive aged wine, because its got a bigger number on the bottle? Answering that honestly reveals a lot about you. Even then, breeding for thc has ruined the gene pool. Its everything in the plant working together in balance, not THC, that matters.

The least common denominator obviously has no taste buds or gag reflex, and operates on mental placebos on a daily basis. I've heard people talk about the great flavors of a dispensaries weed, and the stuff taste nothing like Cannabis, and makes me sick.. I dont know how people smoke the stuff at all.

One trip to the hydro shop, and I realized why the legal weed seemed fake and was absolutely disgusting to consume.. You're smoking grow products, thats why. The dispensary bud is overfed with useless snake oil gimmicks products that can't be flushed out. Weed does not smell like weed in the dispensaries. It smells like plastic. Not the smell of Bubblegum strains, no, like burning trash bags full of recyclables. My stomach is killing me. Any strain from Norcal soothed my stomach before even packing a bowl, it did not matter the genetics. Az dispensary bud, even the stuff that doesn't taste like nutes, generally upset my stomach. It doesn't even give you cotton mouth,its like.. empty and oilless inside.. This is coming from someone who prefers fluffy Sativa buds. Actually, to put it into perspective, the last time I vaped mexican brick was fairly recent. It tasted great and had a better high. Just had to vape a lot.

YES, I would rather smoke halfway decent reggie than bud from Az dispensaries. The stone alone is euphoric vs spaced out. The taste is what gets me though. Nothing I mean NOTHING I came across had a danker smell than reggie. The rare clean bud in Az taste like reggie strains. Not kush, Sour diesel or anything like the package says. They actually have people believing that the smell. of Azadirachtin,a fungicide, is the skunky smell weed is known for... For Petes sakezI cab tell which of my neighbors smoke dispensary weed and which ones smoke black market.. One. yard smells like sweet n sour skunk, the other smells like burning leaves soaked in motor oil, at best.


I never got Neem sprayed buds, artificialy scented buds, or really any bad tasting or headache inducing buds in my life until I got my Mmj card. Its an absolute JOKE. The best stuff in the Arizona dispensaries on on par with whay I used to have trouble moving in Arkansas for half the price. Colorado bud was npt quite as bad when I dealt. You could always tell it was Colorado bud though. It all smelled the same mo matter the strain, and had a bland taste. My friends hated that I knew where their bud was from. It should wall smell identical!

To be completely honest, i bought two 8ths a week for 2 years straight in AZ dispensaries, and can count on one hand how many of those strains were even tolerable to smoke.. And none of them were the cut they claimed to be. They grow bagseed with fake scents applied. I threw away thousands of dollars of disgusting weed that tasted like snake oil grow products. Dispensary bud is full of chemicals, mold, mold hiding sprays, soaked in sugars for added weight. Poorly trimmed. I never saw any of this shit in Arkansas, buying from Norcal, OR, Can. I want tp start importing hash again from African/ME nations, and giving it away in dispensary parking lots. People need to know the most basic soothing weed smells/flavors that tne dispensary bud absolutely does not have. Dabs have zero smell and flavor, except for butane of course. When I bought wax from Norcal, it stunk up the block with lemon skunk, and tastes like space candy.

You can tell EXACTLY what synthetic nutrients lines and fake scent additives the growers use. Botanicare Pure Blend Pro is a nutrient line you smell most commonly. You dont have to be a grower to know produce shouldn't taste like MiracleGro. Then, they use Botanicare Sweet Citrus and Sweet Grape, or AN Budcandy, or GH Floranectar, or Cutting Edge Sour Dee at harvest to give worthless buds a smell of some sort. These products are the same as spraying with sugar water, except its simple sugars that absorb through the root. They aren't even smart enough to make their own snake oils either. They pay a premium for bottled gimmicks from Monsanto connected and pedophile ran, Nature hating corporations . No one who grows for dispensaries in Az has a clue what natural Cannabis even is. The fake smells and sugar water doesn't fool anyone with experience, the product is RUINED, its trash. Just like the lungs of anyone smoking sugars. But some poor delusional fools keep buying it. So they lower the prices and sell more of the same. Fake smells.. I will never get over that one.

I can't smoke weed with any cardholders in Az.. There's a 99% chance the bud will restrict my breathing, give me a headache, or induce "bitter weed face". Its a shame, no one in Az mmj scene has ever smoked real weed before. You know, the stuff that has a pungent smell and heavenly flavor amd makes you giggle. Not something premature and moldy, sprayed with essential oils and sugars that burn your lungs and ache your joints.

The best bet shopping a dispensary in AZ is to stick with something that smells like haybales,lawn trimmings. Because if you buy anything with an actual smell, its usually a fake smell from a bottled product, or the old classic bait and switch, since it's not the same bud they show you that you come home with.

Weed without terpenes and flavinoids. Weed with fake terpenes. Weed with fake frost. Wax made from reclaimed dabs and sugar leafs, with "Pineapple Express" synthetic blend. There's really no purpose in strains at a dispensary. None of it is legit or what it's suppossed to be, even in the rare case that it's clean enough to smoke. Pineapple Express is no longer a strain, iys a bottled scent! What more needs said. Kts fake weed.

Planting bagseed and soaking the roots in simple sugars and fruit esters. Every myth you hear about the black market came true in the mmj market. I have no problem classifying the garbage in Arizona as FAKE WEED. When your entire lineup smells like a shady fake smell products I can identify with 100% accuracy, you should never be allowed to grow Cannabis again. What the dispensary growers are doing is abominable. It is offensive on so many levels. Buds soaked in nut products. Soaked in synthetic pesticides. Soaked in sugars, covered in mold, soaked in dairy based mold sprays.

Let it sink in what MMJ is doing to people. The bud is beyond useless. It belongs in a courtroom as analyzed. evidence of fraud and bodily harm. Its commercial sterile hydroponic crap in the first place,then they hire some minimum wage meth head who will, no shit, crush up Valium into his pots. I've seen it. Dispensaries even clean out dab rigs, and sell the cleaned. wax. I dont expect anyone to believe that, I had to see the employee tasked with doing it first hand before my mind could grasp how pathetic and dangerous legal cannabis is going to be. Nothing is regulated about it but who can grow it. Nothing regulates the how. Tje same shit is happening in Canada, providers are growing dirty BULL SHIT.

Ive stopped vaping completely until I can grown my own. I finally ran across some artificially scented bud that gave me instant pimples on my forehead, followed by 18 hours of cold sweats and shivers. I couldn't risk it anymore! Any rookies first crop is better than dispensary top shelf. As long as they use microbial soil, and not the synthetic chemicals that attempt to replicate soil grown bud in a dead medium. The local growers seem like they are sponsored by these gimmick snake oil hydroponic nutrient companies! Its all a crock and everyone without a brain and a heart has bought into it.
