Medical marijuana was legalized in Colo. in 2000, and came into effect in 2001. What's this "last year" business?

Whats the big deal I like how the "news" stresses at the beginning the term "legal and illegal." Nice technique for getting people to think how you want them too. I think its a great way for people WITH medical conditions to enjoy their medicine. The funny thing with all these news and political people is they don't think twice about popping pills for pain and drinking a few beers a night or a couple glasses of wine.. This country is filled with suburban hypocrites. Sheesh.

A marijuana restaurant is safer than a bar, not to mention the people are patients and the main ingredient is their prescribed medication.

The opening of a Medical Marijuana Restaurant along with the growth of medical marijuana dispensaries compounded by the number of new Colorado Medical Marijuana licenses being referred to the Colorado Board of Health is proof that Coloradans want marijuana legalized outright and are willing to pay for it. Now if the local, county, and state representatives get the clue maybe we can end 72 years of lies and prohibition of something safer than alcohol by legalizing, regulating, and taxing commercial (hemp), medical, and recreational marijuana with the self-determination to grow your own marijuana just like you can brew your own beer or make your own wine.

It's about time places like this are opening. So many people make such a big deal over this, and what harm is pot doing to them? What about the hundreds of bars that poeple leave and get behind the wheel? How many deaths have there been because someone was high and driving? Then look at all the drunk drivers that kill people daily. I think the opposers should try a joint or maybe some cheesecake. The bigger problem we have is all the illegal aliens here, who probably drive drunk, stoned and with out a license!

Fine- make it legal. But I am certain that there are many people WITHOUT medical conditions using it- and again, fine. But what does being suburban have to do with it? You're actually kind of a hypocritical, righteous snob about it too, aren't you? Sorry everyone can't be as cosmopolitan and enlightened as YOU. Sheesh.

10 bucks a brownie!!! Those better be potent brownies.

Can't imagine saying to the wife" Yeah, so after Home Depot, wanna go drop twenty so we can munch the brown eye?"

They are medicine...most caregivers know how to distribute the right proportional amount of medical marijuana per food item. Most medibles are ranged by a persons weight, normally in a break down of light dosage: 120 lbs or heavy dosage: 240 lbs. Normally at 1 gram per serving or 1.5 to 2 grams per serving. The cost per brownie is actually competitive. Remember that dispensary medical marijuana is proportional to the street price averaging $400 an ounce. Also when you use words like "brown eye" you are delineating the fact that medical marijuana is medicine and the users of it are patients.

If you are curious or are actually seeking information about cannabis as medicine, licensing, and how to become a medical marijuana patient I suggest attending the "FREE" Holiday Cannabis Health Fair on Sunday December 13, 10a to 4p @ the Holiday Inn Denver Central, 4849 Bannock St, Denver, CO. This is an educational outreach event being promoted by the Cannabis Therapy Institute. There is absolutely no cannabis medicine at this event only information and other products.

For those interested in legalization of marijuana and the upcoming legislative session dealing with medical marijuana there will be the monthly December Rally of Mile High NORML and The Denver 420 Team, December 26, 3p - 5p, Colorado State Capitol Building, West Side, Lincoln and Colfax Aves, Denver, CO See ya there and the smell in the air...that's freedom...!!! FREE THE WEED...!!!

I dont understand what is the difference on marijuana and liquor is.If you think about it. Liquor actually kills people whether its through health or through car accidents and it has no medical purpose while marijuana has its medical purposes, and helps in different medical issues. I think Marijuana should be legal and Liquor should be limited just like they have started limit Advil and other medicines by asking for id and actually putting your information on some sort of system.

Until it's legalized for more than medicinal uses it shouldn't be used like this. I'm a person who believes that marijuana should be legalized and poor excuses for "medical uses" like this just gives people ammunition against the legalization of marijuana. We could tax it heavily and help fill some holes in the budget :)

Personaly I dont want it legalized because then the goverment gets their sticky hands too far into it and messes it up like everything else. If you keep it on a medical level the people who want to use it will obtain a license not bothering anyone or anything. Tax it to help benefit colorados horrible road conditions and better boarder control. We have a right to our medication and these types of places give people the option of takeing there medication a diffrent way. Many people with cancer cant smoke or it irrates their lungs to much so they eat their medication. Also the older generation who dont want to be seen smoking pot can now eat it with in a brownie. Look at all the people that have been suffering over the years from pain, cancer, ect... that can benefit from the use of medical marijuana.

Cooking pot destroys the THC making it ineffective for pain. Nice try though.

When i was in class today this came on and once again i started to think about this, the legalizing of marijauna. I do have the same opinion as you and I believe in what you are saying. Do you think what you said will ever happen?
