Pretty much, the laws need to put pricing caps on the marijuana sold. Why would someone want to buy a 65$ eigth from a dispensary when they can get it for 40$ on the street? Talk about 2 steps back. This will only make street sales for marijuana INCREASE while leaving the "legal state dispensaries" suffering tremendous losses and closing down. Hope Co has enough cops to deal with street sold marijuana again.

Is ritter absolutly just an idiot the dispsories have made over $9,000,000 from just the $90 registration fee everybody has to pay to become a legal patient thats not even counting the taxes they are taking from us. Its all about money right thats what the world revovles around is money and you are gonna throw away all that income, I'm kinda wondering what kinda of payoff Ritter is getting from california to let all there big dispensories come out here and use are land to grow there medication. And I do agree there is way to many dispensories and thats what they need to be doing is getting rid of the ones that are no good we donate over 220 pounds of food to a church in are comunity every 2 weeks to help out are community are any of the other ones doing things like that I dont think so. JUst something to let you think about what is really goin on?

I don't have an axe to grind about medical marijuana one way or the other. But it should be no surprise that Ritter is pro-regulation and anti-business.

...and here I was thinking that the bicycle spill might have knocked some sense into this idiot. Good riddance! Does it not occur to folks that people will find the herb regardless!?!? Good lawd. Quit the horse and pony show and legalize outright! Regulations up the azz will only come back to bite you in the azz.

Maybe everyone should have voted for full legalization instead of this medical farce. Insult and fool the general population and they get very upset and fight back. Blame yourselves for trying to hide behind someone that's really sick and could have used the pot. Now you just made it harder for them to get what they want\need as well as making it harder to end prohibition. If what you wanted was legalization, then that's what should have been set to vote on- not medical pot.
Legalize now

How is it that people are willing to let thugs become rich? People you need to wise up! Do you really think POT just made it's way into our society because the law let it? Prohibition on alcohol was a major mistate in US history and cost the government and the people a lot of money to fight for a lost cause. I really don't care if they tightend regulation or they ban it or whatever they want to do. I will get my marijuana and it will be just as easy as going to a store and paying taxes. Go stand on your MORON highground and allow good people to fight for their rights in AMerican. Ritter your a moron! You are costing colorado citizens a lot in taxes and lost revenue. DUMB @#$

The real story here is why do the hot chicks always leave sitting next to Hedrick? Mollet is a canary. Ritter needs to regulate that only hot women host the GDC show.

Talk about the politicos furthering the schemes of the big corporations. Prime example of how big business owns our politicians and how they disregard the voters for the big money. Good thing these politicos think for all us sheep because we really don't know what we want.

This is protection for Romer's drug running buddies profits and his big pharma buddies profits. Disgusting.

The only people I've ever heard be upset is the politicians and law enforcement. Good thing they know what you want better than you do.

It appears most of the Clowns and Jokers posting on this story are either under the influence of their whacky tabbacy or just mentally impaired and one IQ point away from being bonafide idiots but at the moron stage.

Ban this pseudo so-called medicine thats as bad or worse than the ailment.
Regulated it out of existence.
Like we don't have enough morons and idiots already! Especially in Littleton and Aurora and Denver!

You don't need all the law abiding dispensaries,, lets force them out of business and put in liquor stores.. OR HOW ABOUT EMPTY STORES.. After all weed is soooo scary and deadly...And Alcohol never hurt anybody.. It never killed anybody . Just ask MADD.. or any hospitals. It has so many healing qualities like...???? well you can clean cuts with it... Yea... It makes all the bad things go away.. Yea.... Well it makes some good things go away too.. money , wives etc.... But for now the black market can keep doing what its doing keeping our our border patrol busy and making tons of money. it makes Ritter feel like hes doing something WHEN HE SIGNS SOMETHING IN PUBLIC.... What he doesn't do is listen to the many, but only listens to the few that feels what he does..His decisions keep our police from being there at the right time to prevent bank robberies or car jackings or murders. we need to keep them busy shaking down the pot heads and medical users so chickenritter can enjoy the spoils that they both achieved from their alcohol investments.. Whoops.Whattt .. I mean crush the pot heads so no one mentions the out of control Alcohol problem... WHEN DO YOU HEAR ANY OF THEM MENTION ALCOHOL... DOES CHICKEN LOOPER STILL OWN A BAR...PROBABLY NOT IN HIS NAME ANYMORE...

Look at RECENT history. Prohabition did NOT work except for the under world. Money spent is in the billions to prohibit while taxs lost is the same. While marijuana isn't for every one, regulation is necessary as is it is for alcahol.tobacco and firearms.It will take time to tweek a balance.

Hey Karen O'Keefe, How on earth does this attempt to legitimatize dispensaries when every city can ban them?!?!? What this is going to do is close down a voter approved industry in a country which is supposed to support Free Market!!! The licensing fees, increased staff to produce medicine and the in abillity to get medicine in certain cities will drive prices so hi that no sick person will be able to afford (or find) the meds prescribed.

Vicodin is proven to cause more social problems than marijuana yet you can posses, prescribe, use and distribute near schools, churches and libraries. There is no law saying that cities can ban the sale of Ritalin to patients with a doctor recommendation even though Ritalin is primarily abused by those who know someone with a script.

Don't pretend you are some high an mighty protector of the innocent!!! You are a bureaucrat with no compassion or independent intelligence. Jump on the band-wagon much!!!

Angel Wings - you fit your own description to a T - MORON IDIOT! Your fears control your thoughts. Your entire belief system is based on your lack of knowledge and therefore is irrational. You are the kind of American who can be fed sh*t and believe its tasty pudding (if some bureaucrat tells you so)!
