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.

Someone should look into his newest "Employer". Woodmen Hills Metropolitan District. There is some shady stuff going on over there. He just walked into a legal nightmare. Unless he's hoping to benefit from the skimming that's going on?

Re: “UPDATE: Colorado Springs City Council election news

Could this be the end of Sarah Jack's political career? Colorado Springs Forward shoveled money at her and got nothing for it. Maybe she should try for a more conservative city? How about a comparable like Oklahoma City?

Re: “Lifetime state parks pass for seniors

Re: “Legal opinion released; Zoo urges approval of land swap

Coming back into this discussion late - Master Planning is in progress and the lawsuit is awaiting consideration in the Colorado State Court of Appeals. Not one audience voice at the first Master Planning meeting put together by Broadmoor-hired NES, was from someone who supported the land swap. So who exactly was in favor of the swap and now gives a hoot about this property? Looks like no one - except those who stand to make money from its development one way or another. Jim Davies - were you were? Sandmarc - were you there?
There were almost 200 folks in the audience and to a man they are all still vitally interested in that land and how it is used. Jack Damioli, Karen Palus, Steve Schuck? Their pre-programmed sales job is done and done. No longer care .... not there. Next please?

Re: “Inmates riot over food

You are so right. Yeah, I get it.."shouldn't go to jail, and jail is supposed to be uncomfortable"..All that BS. First, they WANT you to be malnourished, and weak and underfed.I once lost 15lbs in a week in county jail,the guards are pussies,intimidated and WANT u skinny, weak and easy to physically dominate. Plus 100 percent on point about these private food companies that DELIBERATELY feed SHIT for the required meal, so you will buy top ramen from them for over a dollar a pack (.15 cents in a store). Crooks,Crooks, Crooks.Should be procecuted, and put in jail themselves..See how it feels.Despicable excuses for human beings. Disgusting pieces of slime that don't deserve their own freedom.

Re: “Lifetime state parks pass for seniors

I am 62 years old and have been awarded a life time National Parks Pass for a $10.00 one time fee. Why can't States do this for Seniors as well? Haven't we paid full price long enough to warrant a little consideration. I really would like to know who the State Parks need to thank for younger generations being interested in the great outdoors? I think it is we the senior generation...Just saying!!!

Re: “Bulletin Board

Bulletin boards are commonly used in schools, colleges and office depots etc. to gather and transfer information. In todays time, it is not possible to convey our message individually so these boards are very helpful, one just need to stick the matter on the common bulletin and everyone will get the news. For all this, use inventive material to make them more eye-catchy and you can easily get such stuff from https://www.hyglossproducts.com/back-to-school-activity-2. I hope you all will like them too.

Re: “Coloradans conflicted on Trump's Supreme Court pick

I have no problem believing it was a joke. The social and political climate in the 1980s was nothing like it is today. Back then, it was cool to be left wing--further left than the liberals in the Democratic Party. The further to the left, the cooler.

One of the sadder aspects of the times was a propensity to call anyone with even moderately conservative views, a fascist. It should not be surprising that victims of this name calling would adopt the label as a backhanded compliment.

Furthermore, no real fascist organization ever operates under its true identity. They adopt mild names like "Alt Right," because they know no decent person will give a second look if they use words like fascist, nazi, or racist in their names.

Re: “UPATE: Did dinosaurs and humans co-exist? Flier at USAFA says yes.

Discovery "news" is theocratic propoganda. It wouldn't pass a basic 6th grade level quality test for website reliability. The people publishing this psuedo-scientific garbage are not scientists. It's a guy named Chuck Anderson (no scientific credentials) publishing out of his basement- a clear sign of how desperate the evangelical movement has become. If seen in public, grab this cultist crap and throw it in the trash- where it belongs.
