Bravo, Mr. Shaw! There might be a few bumps down the road, but forward-thinking leadership is what it'll take to lead us through them.

I was glad to hear that C.F. is not going the same direction as Whitefish & Kalispell. I hear a lot of misguided, selfish people who want to put in thier two cents. Well, here's mine. Have you ever lived every single day of your life in pain? Have you ever had to take two hanfulls of pills six times a day? It'll rot the teeth rite out of your head. And that's no joke! I do agree that these shops should operate within the laws of our state. As far as I can see, they are. I haven't been in one yet, but I am a cripple, so please, give me time. Most of the people I've talked to are actually very ignorant as to the laws now on the books. Especially those who are against these shops. Even though most of these same people voted FOR Medical Marijuana. I agree with our Mayor. It has been voted on and "The People" voted YES.By the way, I don't have to spend every day watching the clock to see if it's TIME anymore. With the medicine that God made, I mostly just take vitimans now. I am free from the clock and the drug companies. Thank you Mr. Barnhart and the rest of the city council. You did not make us wait even longer to take any criminal element out of a much needed, very few side effects, plant made by God, medicine. Again, I thank you. Now I can actually sleep at night.

Good for C Falls!! At least they are not a bunch of wimpy whiners like Kalispell and Whitefish. Hopefully the caregivers will sue and bankrupt both 'cities.'

While I understand your enthusiasm, I really would not like to see any of our towns go broke. But, then again, they kinda already are. HuH? Kinda puts a little different spin on the idea doesn't it.If controled properly, and if people who use this medication would change the way they aproach the subject...? Who knows. It could help our economy while still not allowing illegal sales and other such transactions. No, I don't have my head in a cloud, of smoke or otherwise. People are always going to try to get away with something. Look at our DUI's for alcohol. I think it's about time we started approaching this subject as adults. After all, aren't we the adults who voted for it's use in the first place? Let's try to "flip the script" on the way we even use our own medication. You're not "getting high", you're taking a dose of medication. This kind of thinking has actually helped me to USE my medicine instead of letting it USE me. This idea works with pills or natural medications. And, your stuff lasts longer and actually works better.
