People have been driving to Steamboat for their cannabis since January 2014, and there's been no noticable increase in DUI cases involoving cannabis along that particular stretch of highway 40. As a matter of fact, cannabis related offenses on HWY 40 fell drastically after legalization. Strike two - try again.
I'd like to see you cite your sources for your opinions. I'm a fan of fact.
And even if that is true, that stoned drivers are pin balling around the roadways, murdering families, and smashing through coffee shop windows, why then, would you want them to have to drive to Steamboat to purchase cannabis? If it really is so dangerous (which it really isn'y - sorry) then would it not make sense to give people a local option? Legal marijuana is here whether you like it or not. You can cry and scream and kick all you want, but 45 minutes away, there are THREE recreational cannabis stores, and they are not going away, ever.
Except that tobacco kills 480,000 people each and every year, and cannabis has killed 0 people, ever.
Don't you live in California, Dennis? What's with this "we" stuff? You don't vote here. You don't even live here, yet, you have comments and opinions on almost every piece of news on this site. Many of them are things that do not, and probably will not ever affect you in any direct way. I don't really understand it.
You made it personal, when you mentioned my physical appearance. I made it personal by pointing out the fact that, although you're very, very old and very, very wise, you are still entirely incapable of constructing a paragraph.
I'll see you when you retire, Good sir! Thanks for the fun.
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.
