they are never going to stop coming into town. They have yard after yard of trees, grass, & not to mention all the farms around here. I personally dont think they are a danger, or a problem. Its not like they are going to maul or attack us. All they ever do is look at you with those big eyes & munch on grass. I'd say we should thank those deer for helping us maintian our yards :). And think about it, they need to be well fed for hunting season!lol.

I personally have been into the Craig Apothecary to check it out, and they also offer help and advice to those that wish to grow their own, among dvd, & books to take home free. And, for those that cant grow, they can appoint a caregiver to do so for them. what many patients dont know, is that you can do BOTH. You can grow your own and have a caregiver grow for you. Its a smart idea to do so, so you can have a harvest around every 4 months depending on when you start either grow. I just want to state how terrific it is to have the Craig Apothecary in town. It is much needed by those with medical cards, so that they can go to someone legal and safe. Oh, and BTW they dont have to abide by the moratorium, because they opened before it, but The owner said the he would willingly comply to resonable city rules, but he is NOT required to do so,& can opt out at any time. So all the complaining isnt going to do anything to his business but make more people aware its here, and give him more customers.:) so keep it up, I really want to see his business make it, if for anyhting, to stick it in the City councils face. :)

I would just like to state that the city of Craig had NINE years to do something about Medical Marijuana Dispensaries. it is NOT something that just sprang up, And , what some peole forget, is that the issue of cannabis being medically beneficial has already been decided, 9 years ago. I encourage people that have time, to evalutate scientific data on marijuana, and review medical reports pertaining to its relevance. They might see a flaw in their unwavering opinion of 'pot'. Craig's moral fiber is not going to crumble the second a sick person uses THC. It is not going to effect you if your neighbor is a medical cannabis user, just the same as it wouldnt effect you if your neighbor took maxolt for their chronic migranes. Live and let live. Judge not. Those in glass houses shouldn't throw stone….( you see where I am going?) The oppositional statements & opinions are behind the times (by almost 10 YEARS), the Craig Apothecary is open, so wasting time complaining isnt going make it dissapear. It just fuels the issue further and gives them more free press, which I am sure they dont mind at all. :)

It is legal in the state of colorado, and is taxed when sold in dispensaries.

Medical 'pot' is legal in this state. Also it is taxed when sold in dispensaries. As to greystone knowing what works and what is crap, what works for you may not work for others, and that is obvious when you look at the number of people that choose Medical Marijuana as an effective means to cope. If you are managing your cancer and pain without using medical marijuana, than that's great. But that is your choice. I'm assuming that you are an adult, and you have the right to choose your treatment. So please dont chastise those that dont see your way as the only way.

I would just like to say that dispensaries are NOT regulated by religious organizations, they are regulated by the state, and there is a clear division of church and state that I think Mr. Wood has forgotten. He can have his opinion, but the guidlines are up to the state of Colorado, and the city of Craig. What next Mr. Wood? Why dont you put MORE time and energy into keeping kids away from cigarettes and alcohol? Both cause cancer, decrease your life span, and are NOT medically reccomended. all of which Marijuana does NOT!
“If it's truly a medical situation, I wouldn't have a problem with it,” he said. “In different communities, I've seen it abused in the past.”
Wood added that he and the church plan to closely watch what happens, and if it seems a dispensary isn't necessary in Craig, he'd like the community to avoid opening one.

I just want to say thanks for bringing a higher level of intilect and understanding to this discussion.
@ everyone Some people (ahem… GreyStone) randomly select a brief portion of studies and take those words as God's. Now that doesnt seem very objective,,now does it? As to the article he/she was picking from, the PHARM. company has everything to gain in stating that Marijuana is less effect in comparison to synthetic THC pills, that they produce. DUH. I wish that people would open their eyes and not eat the dis-information that's fed to them, or at the very least be smart enough to double check their sources.Why not channel that 'reefer madness' mentality to a worthy adversary? for instance, I wonder if GreyStone is anti Vicoden, a commonly perscribed pain killer, that is highly addictive and can be fatal if taken in large doses….Or anti alcohol, that is responsible for countless deaths, liver disease, cancer, & addiction. Oh, and not to be forgotten are those NASTY cigs that we all puff so dearly on, who knows what toxic subtances are packed in there!
What I am trying to say is that ANTI marijuana people should lay off and nit pick something that actually kills, is directly linked to diseases, and ruins lives….. But you would never see that, because PHARM. drugs are the norm. Society thinks we should “just swollow the pills and accept the side effects. Forget about safe natural alternatives, that crap is for hippies!” Sadly, I believe that is why little old Craig, with its little old beliefs, is resisting on a political level. We the people should NOT have to fight so hard for the rights we voted for in this great state. The City should uphold these laws, not look for loop- holes. People have the right to know their options. If a person decides that Medical Marijuana is right for them, no one has a right to contest that. People have a right to choose, & those people that choose an alternative for chemical, synthetic, addictivly dangerous drugs, should be granted safe, legal access.

This article was taken from norml.com
Opponents of medical marijuana law reform often argue that few or no health authorities recognize cannabis as a legitimate therapeutic agent. Most recently, this notion was repeated by DEA Director Asa Hutchinson, who stated, “We all have sympathy for folks that need medication, but we have to listen to the scientific and medical community, and they're saying that marijuana has no legitimate medical purpose.” This contention, however, is altogether untrue. In reality, numerous health and medical organizations from both the United States and abroad support the use of marijuana as a medicine.
The following list is a sampling of the various health and scientific organizations that back patient access to medical marijuana. Though it is not meant to be comprehensive, it is intended to provide a cross-section of the medical community's broad support for medical cannabis, and present a referenced, fact-based response to those who claim otherwise. As the medical cannabis issue continues to stimulate political debate, reformers and legislators need to consider the positions of the medical community to better make informed policy decisions regarding the medical use of marijuana.
The reccomendations are so extensive, and I do not want to flood out this comment section, so copy and paste this link in your URL to see the full list of health organizations' endorsements:http://norml.com/index.cfm?Group_ID=3390

We ask that any one that believes in our rights as people to choose what is best for our bodies and our lives, PLEASE come to the city council meeting ('work shop') at 5:30pm next tuesday. You may also stay for the official meeting with the Craig Apothecary owner, Shaun Hadley, and the city council. It is our mission to help those with CO state issued MMJ cards, obtain their medicine is a safe, legal manner. Least to say Marijuana is proven to be NON lethal and is beneficial to those in pain. :)
