What would make more sense is to keep the religious nutcases off of my porch...any zoning for that..That is more of an infringement on society than any pharmacy....

They need zoning to keep you out of Littleton and Colorado.

Great, they say we cant have a dispensary within 1000 ft of a church? Not a problem, it doesn't say anything about caregivers not being able to grow their 6 plants next to the church. But I'm sure that is coming next? They will nit pick MMJ to death. I'm out of papers but plenty of pages in the bible. Ecclesiastes burns rather well. Vanity, vanity all is vanity. ;)

Speaking of redemption. The US government and the prison industrial complex needs to come clean with the lord jesus for the millions of people enslaved, extorted, incarcerated and children orphaned since 1937. 73 yrs of oppression.

Drugs need to be re-legalized.

The reason that marijuana remains illegal is because it competes with marinol trademarked and marketed by Solvay and PAR pharmaceuticals and Rhodes Technologies.

Heroin is illegal because it competes with Endo and Purdues oxycontin and Eli Lilly's methadone and a myriad other substitutes. Buprenorphine, etc..

Methamphetamine is illegal because it competes with Teva, Barr and Shire pharmaceuticals prescription adderall and legally prescribed desoxyn.

Lets not forget the newest creation of Shire PLC, Vyvanse, dexedrine bonded with the amino acid lysine.

Cocaine was once sold OTC on the shelves of Sears Roebuck and Company outlets, in the early 1900's trademarked by no other then Bayer aspirin company.

Don't let these scary commercials or government propaganda and rhetoric fool you.

If they were legal and believe you me, they in fact once were, and regulated out of the hands of children and legal. The inordinately high street prices afforded to these compounds would drop 10 fold and property crimes like burglary would disappear, armed robberies, street dealers and most of the prostitution associated would also end as well.

Shame on you purveyors of religion for profit, private prison industries, and government officials who line the pockets of a "fixed" pharmaceutical monopoly.

How many more people have to die, or be enslaved? How many more children have to be orphaned by ignorance and stupidity that is the War on Drugs?

Cartels and pharmaceutical companies, they have a monopoly on sorrow and law enforcement are their low paid enforcers.

1.4 billion a year just from oxycontin alone? Its no wonder weed remains illegal, God forbid anyone should cut into this kind of action!

Can't I please just get permission to grow a freaking plant without being taken away from my son? Who will watch him? Child molesting religious freaks?

You know, the best part is that all these bible freaks like Big Beth and rainbow Cuba boy are just trying to convince themselves otherwise that when they eventually croak (hopefully sooner than later), everything they have come to be in life will be lost forever. Eternal blackness.
They certainly can't prove otherwise or else they would.
Being that Big Beth is an old maid in her 50's now, she's not too far from the inevitable.

Too much of anything can be harmful. Too much religion AND too much weed.

Personally, I don't trust alcoholics. We should monitor the liquor stores more. They are in EVERY shopping center along with Nail Salons. Really? Seriously?

Do we really need that many dispensaries?!

This is a good idea, people. Don't be so damn defensive. Pot smoking is becoming more mainstream so just simmer down and be rational.

Dispensary model fails

The way it stands right now, is that there is too much discrimination in the dispensary model.
If a street dealer has over 12 ounces of pot with a gun in the State of Colorado found in close proximity to the pot he/she is facing two times the sentencing range for the offense.(special offender)
A dispensary can have umpteen pounds of weed under the counter, with a deadly weapon and if someone breaks into his place of "business" he can have a literal shootout that carries out into the cities streets to defend the drugs and money, with NO charges filed.*Google the cherry creek incident.*
Its time to outright legalize and end the discrimination and preferential treatment.
Some people go to prison for 20 years while others enjoy the privilege of business as usual.
Then, they set deadlines as to when legal paperwork must be filed to become part of the chosen few. Remove the deadlines or legalize!
The only difference between a drug dealer and a pharmacist, is a prescription pad. ;)
