You know when learning about the history of marijauna and it's ban in the United States I got the impression that is was banned to keep African Americans under control...
And Mexicans. Xenophobia was alive and well back then as it is today.

More prohibitionist nazis. As we can see, their days are numbered. Warmongers and drug warriors alike - people who profit from waging a civil war against their fellow citizens - need to be removed from any position of power or influence. 20,000,000+ drug war arrests and counting. People are still smoking pot and the only thing that the Drug War has accomplished is an erosion of our civil liberties at an ENORMOUS expense to taxpayers.
Legalize it, regulate it, tax it and then fire all the violent, power-hungry drug warriors.
Preach on, brother.

You're 0 for 2, City Council. I hope your resumes are up to date.
Without illegal aliens, Greeley would look like Limon.

If they really wanted to get rid of them, all they'd have to do is raid all the packing plants and go after the farmers. It's not rocket science-they want this cheap alien labor.

its really sad that the city wants to go against what the citizens of the state voted in favor of. that in itself is illegal. it is a constitutional ammendment and any additional regulations have to be voted upon by the people of the state. these regs will not hold up in court

This medical marijuana thing is a scam by the auto industry. The war on drunk driving has reduced crashes and thus car sales and they see stoned drivers as a way for them to make up for the lost revenue.

"jesus" and "speeders are murderers" are obviously uneducated about this topic. if cannabis is so bad, WHY IS THE AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION URGING FOR A RESCHEDULING OF THE CANNABIS PLANT? Hmmmm. looks like there must be some medicinal value after all! and by the way, a reason for a decrease in drunk driving incidents might be the positive result of people choosing to use a much safer and less harmful substance, CANNABIS!

It is the insatiable appetite of American stoners thay fuels the savage brutality of violence in the Mexican narco-wars.

In just the city of Juarez there are seven MURDERS each day.

In Mexico there have been 15,000 narco murders in the past two years.

Don't go telling be DRUGS don't KILL.

first of all the city council members dont have the right to ban what is written in the colorado state constitution for example if marijuana was legal federally and the state laws say marijuana is illegal you can not say well its legal federally ( u will still be arrested due to state laws)since each state has its own laws and are run individully within the federal united states that is why the city cousil members dont have that right we voted medical marijuana in and it is writtin in the state contitution to stop city officals and counties to undermind the law THE LAW STATES MEDICAL MARIJUANA AND DISPENSRIES ARE LEGAL WITHIN THE GUIDELINES SET FORTH IN THE CONTITUTION so what gives a bunch of old farts and there old ways of living the right to take it away without a vote

Legalizing pot for medicine doesn't help anyone- no taxes, only a few can afford it. We still have the crime, even more. If it is legalized across the board, we can tax it and grow our own, even though Mexico will still suffer, as they will grow and provide it and still have their turf wars. That's their problem. Pot does intoxicate, anyone who says different is a liar justifying their habit, and pot smokers smoke a lot more than social drinkers drink, but that's none of my business, either. Legalize it and shut these whiners up- there are important things going on in the world and this isn't one of them.
