Actually, weed is $150, or less per ounce in Ca. whereas You have to pay $300-$400/oz. in Co.

"Marijuana" has been around since the US Govt. coined that term for it in the 30's.
"Cannabis" has been around since the dawn of time.

Good news for a change. This is potentially such an influential significant event, I'm keeping my fingers crossed it all works out.

You wish!!! There will be MORE people looking at growers to make sure they don't have amounts over the limits and that they turn in taxes and records of transactions to who and when. Mary Jane is still a CLASS I narcotic in the Fed's rule book and Federal law supersedes state and local laws. Get the DEA or ATF involved and you do prison time instead of a slap on the wrist at local levels. It will take some Supreme Court cases to settle the differences in levels of law enforcement for wholesale and retail growing and distribution. You are lucky if you've been growing that long without being caught. You could be used as an example and spend your last good years behind bars.

I love it!! In time I believe that all of us will be given our rights to enjoy pot and not have the stigma that the government propaganda has made it. Just play it right and set a good example for this to all take place. I'm currently planning a trip to Colorado. Always wanted to check out you beautiful state. This will be a good reason to follow through with it. Not just so I can smoke. Haha I do that daily. Just so I can come support the movement that you all have set forth. As for the Feds they will come around once they seen the money generated from this. Money talks.

Just don't forget most of the time when government gets more money it doesn't get them "us" out of debt. If they have been spending and making bad decisions they will continue to. First fix your spending habits and make that money work for what you are telling your tax payers it is going for. That's stuff we all know. Hell even a pot head knows that.Peace and love too ya

All is well out in the states of "milk and honey" BUT there are those people who work in jobs that do and will continue to random test for MJ and until the states and federal government can come up with a plan to drop liability requirements for injuries and death on the job where MJ and other banned drug use is involved, the random pee testing and firings will continue for testing positive even if you smoked "legally".
