This is exactly why I am against locations like CAPS being in our community. We get all of these parolees introduced into our community and they all stick around lessening our community values. I am not sure if this guy came from CAPS or not but the issue remains the same. Maybe if no one will hire him he wont stick around and will be forced to leave. Have no pity for these individuals, only their victims.

Carn- Being married to a cop in this community I would imagine that you would be aware of the investigation divisions in both local offices. I too dislike incompetent cops (I should expand that to incompetence in general), but your comment makes a sweeping generalization against all cops in "your area". Even though our departments have had some bad apples come to light recently I think that overall we have great law enforcement officers in this area and we should be proud of them and all that they do for our community.

Carn- "The LE in your area do not have investigators". First of all we do have investigators and second of all is this not our area? Our police are not clowns, they are experts and they are professionals. I guess that you are one of those individuals who hate cops. I follow laws and do not have run ins with them.

Slipknot- LEOs can be on private property and they can even be on private property when called to it. I also remember hearing somewhere that in an establishment that has a liquor license police officers can come in and perform checks for violations of that license. It is an administrative function of LEOs. I am sure that if you have ever been in a bar in Craig you have seen the CPD or MCSO perform "Bar Checks".

Sumarjn: Thank you for providing me with your links to the medical marijuana stuff. Regarding the Taliban I still don't think that you understand my assertions that they hate us because of our religion. Remember when Osama failed to blow up the World Trade Centers in 1993? When Clinton was president? Bush(s) cannot be totally to blame for the events of 9-11. It occurred only 8 months after he took office. Clinton's administration did nothing to prevent the attacks of 9-11 in his 8 years of office. Then Osama succeeded after almost a decade of undisturbed planning in 2001. The Russians have exploited Afghanistan more so than ourselves, remember that we trained and funded the Taliban resistance against the Russians in the 1980s? If the Muslim Extremists across the world didn't pick a fight with every local ethnic group (Philippines, Serbia, Ethiopia, Lebanon, London, Spain, Israel, Russia, etc) I could see that your claims regarding the oil fields would be accurate. But the truth remains that this group of terrorists are concerned about more than just oil, They are following the orders from their prophet mohammad to destroy their enemy, i.e. us. There is a bigger picture here than just the oil fields.

Sumarjn: You have not listed any references in this forum. Was it another forum that you posted them in? I would be interested to see them.

It is my understanding that the terrorists dislike (not the best term) the infidels because of our lifestyle and our choice of religion. I know they do not like our presence in any Muslim country (for oil or otherwise) but the foundations of their hatred is in fact based on religious doctrine, not the recent oil related developments of the last 50 years. The British had similar problems with Iraq in the 1950s and 1960s. Take the violence in the middle east. They are at war with Israel because of possession of "Holy Lands" and their presence in the region. It has nothing to do with the Israeli oil companies. I am sure that America wants to secure the oil fields for our economic security, but again, the basis of the conflict is based on religion. That is why they also declare Jihad on other branches of the Muslim Faith (Sunnis and Shiites for example) who have no oil interests. This fight (Afghanistan in particular) is regarding the preservation of American values and making sure that terrorists are not allowed to continue their terrorist activities.

Nimrod: My apologies as I was not aware of the biblical reference of Nimrod. But here in the 21st century Nimrod is taken as a person regarded as silly, foolish, or stupid. (American Heritage Dictionary, 2009).

Even if Marijuana were legalized that does not mean that employers would have to allow their employees to smoke it. Alcohol is legal and employees cannot be under the influence of alcohol on the job. Most corporate insurance companies require random drug and alcohol testing as a condition of bonding or insuring. That would not change dispite the legality of marijuana.

Nimrod- There are lot of older remedies that are now found to not be effective. The American Lung Association actually advises against using alcoholic beverages (such as a Toddy, like you mention) as a remedy for the common cold as it contributes to dehydration and has no real effect. Depending on your age, I seriously doubt that it was the best cough medicine that was available. But as your chosen e-handle suggests, maybe you just thought that it was. SO, besides a no longer recommended cold remedy I can again state that I cannot think of any reason for medicinal alcohol.

Nimrod: Alcohol is used in cough syrups as a solvent for a number of reasons such as; alcohol keeps other ingredients dissolved into a liquid form more effectively than water, and second of all it enables the cough syrup to have a longer shelf life. There is no medicinal reason for the alcohol in cough syrup, it is just aids in maintaining chemical composition of the syrup.

Sumarjn: FIrst of all oil did not start the conflict between Muslim Extremists and the rest of the world. Muslim Extremists have been at war with Jewish, Christian, and Hindu peoples for a number of centuries. This is all based on the fact that the believe that anyone who does not believe the way that they do is inferior (infidel) and is an enemy if they do not convert, but of course "research" would show that to be true. My point was obviously not received. Statistics Research: I would love to see the numbers that you quote so effortlessly regarding the number and demographical information regarding who is applying for medical marijuana. Obviously you believe that marijuana is an awful drug. It is my personal belief that marijuana may hold remedies for persons that traditional medicine cannot offer. Would I ever smoke Marijuana? No, but that does not mean that it may prove effective to treat someone's illness. It is my personal political view that the government should not be telling us what we can or cannot do to our bodies or in our own homes (within reason, don't blow that out proportion by assuming I mean that we should all be allowed to murder at will or anything like that). Do you know that morphine and its other medical variants are all opiates? Wow, basically a prescribed version of heroin. Like most issues in this country people take it upon themselves to impress their moral views on others without the respect to try and understand where someone else is coming from? This type of close mindedness is very disturbing. Of course there are going to be people who try and abuse the system and claim to suffer from chronic pain and try to obtain prescription marijuana, i mean it happens with morphine pain killers all the time. What we need to rely on is the integrity of those who took the Hippocratic Oath (Medical Doctors take the Hippocratic Oath to practice medicine with the best interest of the patient in mind, just in case you did not know, i don't want to lose you again) to prescribe medical marijuana in a responsible fashion, similarly to the caution they use in prescribing morphine or other painkillers. All that I am saying is keep an open mind and remember that this law was made to ease the suffering of individuals who are in severe pain or whom modern medications are not working. I think that the intent of the law is inherently good and that the State of Colorado will enforce it, we just need to trust that doctors will abide by their oath and not prescribe medications to those who will not benefit from it.

I think that it is a good thing that Craig Passed the Rules regulating the dispensaries. It is better that we regulate it now, early, rather than falling behind the swelling political tide that is surrounding this issue on a national level. What I still fail to understand is how people can judge someone because they choose to take a different form of treatment from a doctor. I do not smoke marijuana nor would I ever plan on using it as medication if it were an option for any ailment that I may acquire, but I would not judge someone who does make that choice. There are so many close minded individuals in this community who chose to close their minds and judge people rather than look at facts and respect the personal choices of others. I whole heartedly believe that there are more alcoholics in this community than there are potheads. What makes an alcoholic inherently better than a pothead? Because it is legal? Alcohol is a drug and it has no medicinal purposes that I can think of and we have no problem with at least 5 liquor stores and countless bars in this community. In reality I am sure that not all people who smoke pot are pot heads the same way that not everyone who drinks is a drunk. The people who are going to smoke pot without a legal way of doing it are still going to get their pot, the same way that people still drank during prohibition. Use common sense and logic rather than emotion when looking at an issue. Do research on a topic before spouting ignorance. Do us all a favor and be informed on issues, especially if they matter to you. And do not put someone down because they believe differently than you, doing that makes you no better than the Taliban Terrorist who hates everyone who thinks differently than they do.
