Yes, the 'wizdum' of the Feds is to KEEP LOTS of illegal money out on the streets.

The Feds are completely besides themselves with this 'competition' from the states. Until recently it was just the Feds and the Drug Lords who had a monopoly on the dirty money.

Indeed the Feds WANT there to be more dirty money out there so they can 'confiscate it.. Unaudited drug money confiscations fuel some of the most evil covert operations imaginable from our own government,.. they are DEPENDENT on that money and secrecy it brings them.

They will let the business's get enough of a bankroll safed up and then raid them and take the money and leave the plants like they always do. It is all about the money. It isn't about your health, society, the children or morality.. it is about MONEY.. I'm talking about the Feds, not the dispensaries.

We will make it through.

Until then just get a "Red Card" and have one of the local growers (and theres a handful of good growers here in Estes) deliver it right to your door.

We went through this in the thirties. Just stay papered up for now.
Or grow a little plant yourself.
It might take a few tries but you'll get it.

Just comes with the "legalization" issue. Now the ATF and the IRS comes in and the growers and distributors will eventually have to account for every ounce grown and sold for tax purposes. You skirt the system and do FEDERAL time. Remember Al Capone? The Feds couldn't stop him until the IRS stepped in and put him away.
