More MMJ-Related Legislation in Colorado

Even as Colorado Senators were killing the driving-while-high bill on Monday, the legislature in the Colorful state was approving new regulations with regard to the sale of medical marijuana.

Extending to the summer of next year, the bill places a moratorium on new dispensaries, makes some alterations to the rules for people who work in existing dispensaries, and allows local law enforcement to seize plants if they suspect them to be illegal, without being required to keep them alive until the case is settled.

Under the terms of this new bill, at-home caregivers or anyone growing pot for up to five patients must register with the state, though such people have been exempted from public-records laws in case, as caregivers expressed concerns about, their safety would be at risk in the general public knew about their marijuana growing activities.

This bill still faces another, more formal, Senate vote, before it’s passed on to the House of Representatives.

    We are still in the fight with Colorado; but no matter which way the Senate decides it still will be a struggle with the Feds but as long as MMJ is not completely outlawed in Colorado… The fight is n’t over, and we are not going to throw in the towel!

    I hope that someday this is all mute point, but it is a very serious issue and the fact that people are afraid for the general population to know that they are providing care (by helping to grow) for sick individuals is a very sad problem. I completely understand that they are afraid, they could lose jobs, face huge issues of near “racism” by letting the world know they are growing marijuana. But if we all just hang in there maybe someday we won’t have to be afraid.

    I will be so happy when all of these trival MMJ related issues are no longer a concern. We should be able to smoke and be proud just as any other minority group has the right to stand up for itself. As more news articles bring current cannabis fights to mainstream America the more chance we have of seeing a sweeping change for an International pro cannabis agenda.
