This isn't about providing illegal drugs for children. There will always be bad people and people who abuse the law. The fact is that legalizing marijuana allows chronically ill individuals an option. Pharmaceutical drugs are absolute killers and linked to violent acts, suicide and loss of an quality of life. Marijuana brings relief without the negative physical and cognitive effects that come along with drugs like oxycodone, fentanyl, and tons of other narcotics used to treat chronic pain that accompanies many health issues from cancer to debilitating injuries. The most frustrating issue is that the State's legalization was not managed properly. Too many licenses were issued to individuals without major health issues, there was simply not enough thought put into how many pot shops one city could handle and how to manage that growth, and there was little public education that reveals the "real" truth about the positive effects of marijuana use. Good luck to Palisade and I hope the voters support this initiative.

I'd rather get a bottle of percocet for $10 dollars out of pocket with my insurance than a $50 bag of weed that would last me 3-4 days when the percocet will help with pain for a couple weeks.

The Marijuana industry destroyed itself with it's unnecessarily high prices and under the table business transactions. Better yet instead of finding all these awesome different ways to treat a headache, why not fix the problem itself instead of just alleviating the symptoms?

I am not against medical marijuana. Use it in the pill form so I dont have to pay for you health care when your lungs are destroyed by the smoke.

First I am not a pot smoker. However, I feel like people who oppose it are ingnorant to the good it does for a lot of folks. If the industry grows legally it will eventually come down to good prices. As far as kids getting it well punish the ones giving it to them don't stereo type pot smokers. Its wrong ! Pot was around way before you or me and it is an important herb in our history, why don't you read up on it. I would rather see people smoke weed than crack, meth, heroin, weed doesn't give you the urge to kill your own moma for a buck to get it. I have seen 70 and 80 yr old getting pot pills to help with their pain. I could only smile. Its great! One thing people that are ingorant don't know is smoking gives you a head high. A pill, or cookie, or brownie, is a body high that does KILL PAIN. It doesn't make em all stoned. Regaurless of which way you consume it helps the pain. It like vitamans come in different forms is just what the individual wants. So those who are all against it, your only showing your ingnorance and close mindnessness. When you get old or have a lot a pain, give it a try I am sure it will change your mind. Also it doesn't have the effects prescriptions drugs have on your liver, kidneys, heart ect......The pot bashers need to be taught on the matter. If people prefer to take a pot pill or smoke a bowl, let em and don't bash em for it, it doesn't make them a dope head. Does you taking your pills make you a pill head ? NO so just give other the same respect as you would like to have.

the current system now is abused. Why not make profit for the community while getting high?

You're an idiot for putting your "friends" name all over the internet. Maybe there are people he doesn't want to know his business. How about you putting your full name on here. Or maybe you don't want mommy and daddy to know?

Marijuana is the best medication out there and we need to concentrate on the
meth problem.
