Americans have been losing their rights willingly for years. For example with growing hemp or marijuana. I have no problems with any kind of plant even poppy for that matter to be grown. But, no, our government and the laws enacted from our leaders say no. You will be fined and/ jailed. Yet, our government does not fall under those same laws. It can tax and distribute Mary Jane as she is or in the form of marinol.How does one explain that to someone who's been incarcerated ? or has been forced to purchase with insurance what could have been raised by their own hands? The government has gone from caring about the rights of the citizens to earnings from taxpayers/ businesses. It's too big for its britches.
Marijuana tourism is on the way to Colorado, adults over 21 can use the drug, not just Colorado residents. If lawmakers agree with the recommendation, tourists would be free to buy and smoke marijuana.
"Marijuana purchased in Colorado must stay in Colorado,"
Task force members were less successful agreeing to recommendations on marijuana growing and public use. Colorado's marijuana law allows home growing but requires plants to be in a locked, secure location out of public view. The task force couldn't agree whether a "locked" and "secure" location would mean a backyard surrounded by a fence, or whether an enclosure such as a shed or greenhouse should be mandatory.
One of the task force's most vocal marijuana critics, Greenwood Village Police Chief John Jackson, worried that backyard pot gardens would need more than a chain-link fence to keep kids out.
