I did NOT correct offence to offence, based on the off chance that you were educated in Britain or Canada.
PS - English. Learn it. I took the liberty of starting you on your path.
(W)ell, that's just about a book load of information (that) I don't need.
(S)haun, have you (G)oogled yourself(?) (I)f you do you(,) will find several photos of yourself, one when you were young looking, a pretty nice looking guy, just starting in the "apothecary" business. (A)nother pretty recent, oh my(!) (I)f that's what pot will do to you, we need to outlaw it forever. (N)o offence meant, but you have really aged in just a few years(.) (T)oo bad what drugs do to folks. (Y)ou probably need to try and get those photos off the net(,) if you are going to try to legalize any drug. (A)gain, no offence meant, but what a difference.
(A)nd it looks like (you're) not going to get your "vote" too bad, I think you would really be surprised at the outcome, but then (you're) not interested in the outcome, only the income, right(?)
YOU'RE welcome! :)
You're googling me??
Maybe if you spent less time Googling me, and more time Googling about the complete non-sense you're spewing, you'd have some more intelligent retorts than my appearance.
Actually Dennis, per Colorado state regulations, they would be one pound batches, each labeled with RFID (radio frequency Identification tags) tags purchased through the state of Colorado, which are then monitored by location. This is all taken care of by the Medical Marijuana Enforcement division, a state run Agency of consisting of gun carrying former law enforcement officers, much like yourself. However, with the amount of passion you that you seem to have about this subject, I'm sure that you already knew that and simply chose to be facetious.
The grow houses are also heavily regulated - unfortunately, these "pot pastures" will be more like large Fortified warehouses, with multi-thousand dollar security and video surveillance. Outdoor growing is not allowed. And if you forcefully break into a domicile or business, it's a little more serious than trespassing, something I'm sure you're familiar with, due to your extensive and infallible knowledge of these laws.
Lastly, Cannabis does not have any sort of psychoactive effects unless heated and bound with a fat or oil - Living creatures are unable to process the THC without that additional step, so as soon as the Elk learn to lock pick the grow, steal some cannabis, and boil it into some butter, I think we can rest easy with the Stoned Elk problems. And if they manage to do that, well then, we've got bigger problems. Dawn of The Planet of The Elk.
Well Dennis, I certainly hope you're this well informed and passionate about something that may actually someday affect your life. As I said in my last reply to your rhetoric spouting comment under my letter to the editor, I want the people to vote, and tell the County and City what they want. That particular vote doesn't even affect me, or my store, and I'm still in great support of it. I passionately believe in fact, research, and my personal experience into the type of substance cannabis actually is, and it's affects on both people and the societies around them, as opposed to the rhetorical questions and unfounded fears presented by you and "John". And yes, I am still going to push for a City of Craig Vote, because the Moffat County vote will not affect anything within Craig city limits. But I'm sure you already knew that, with all your solid facts and sources.
Did you just say California is laughing at Colorado?!
.......you do realize you're sitting in the state with the loosest cannabis regulations in the country, right?! You don't even need a license to open a medical cannabis store in some areas in California. They have an entire county that is well known for the cannabis it produces, and which law enforcement turns a blind eye. Good ol' Humbolt county. So, if they're laughing, it's because they got a hold of some of this Colorado cannabis.
This isn't about alcohol or drugs. It's about a non-harmful substance called cannabis. I'm also completely shocked that a former law enforcement officer would lump marijuana with alcohol and other narcotics. How many times did you have to wrestle a stoner to the ground throughout your career? Did you ever receive disturbing the peace calls about large groups of hippies playing drum circles and fighting? Perhaps a group of "high" maniacs attempted to steal a case of Cheetos from Kum and go?
I'd guess not.
You're absolutely correct. There is a GREAT deal of death, sickness, societal and law enforcement costs related to alcohol and tobacco. Which has absolutely nothing to do with this argument or cannabis.
Do you think not having a recreational cannabis store in Craig will reduce the amount of people smoking or driving under the influence of cannabis? You're dead wrong. They're gonna go ahead and still use cannabis - but they're just gonna drive to steamboat to get it instead of walking down the street. And if you're REALLY worried about keeping high drivers off the roads, let's give them a local option.
We can't be certain how many "fuddy duddies" (sp?) are against it and how many "fuddy duddies" are for it until we put it to a vote. That's what I want. If the town really doesn't want this, let them show it in the polls.
A quick search on google reveals ZERO fatal accidents attributed to Cannabis in Colorado. It's true that it's showing up in more peoples systems, however in not one case was it cited as the cause of the accident. There has also been a massive decrease in fatal accidents, period, since 2004, and an even more noticeable decrease in both alcohol related DUIs and accidents all together in 2014.
Also, As a matter of fact, Dennis, crime is down is all areas where recreational marijuana is sold - http://guardianlv.com/2014/05/colorado-marijuana-sales-up-crime-down/
Although I believe some of your extreme ideas would, in fact, generate a great deal of revenue, I can imagine their societal costs being too great to gain much support, Dennis, so you may need to do some more work on changing minds. Especially the meth lab one. Cannabis, thus far, has been proven to have no societal impact, and has even reduced them in some cases.
In a recent sting in several areas where recreational cannabis was sold, 100% of the businesses who were involved in the sting told the underage person to get lost. The last time I checked, almost every single alcohol licensed business in Craig had at one point failed a sting for underage kids buying liquor - You should be asking them not to sell to the kids, because we sure don't.
I've sent over 5000 people to Steamboat since January, who came in search of Recreational cannabis. Potential customers included a gentleman from Canada, a family from Germany, and folks from every single state across the US, with the exception of Maine and Rhode Island. I tell them "Craig doesn't allow recreational cannabis sales" I then recommend a great restaurant in Steamboat, tell them that Gas is a little cheaper there, and direct them to the location of Several hotels in the Steamboat area. And they happily drive the extra hour, to spend alllll of their out of state money over there. It's time we worry about this Towns future, and stop worrying about a 80 year old Stigma.
