Colorado Cultivates New Marijuana Regulation For Its Growing “Green Rush” | Marijuana.com

Colorado Cultivates New Marijuana Regulation For Its Growing “Green Rush” | Marijuana.com
Earlier this week Colorado’s House of Rep.’s overwhelmingly gave a ‘green thumbs’ up to Bill 1061, more commonly referred to as the “Responsible Medical Marijuana Vendors” initiative. The overall intention of Colorado’s newest marijuana bill is to put in place rules and regulations, with the intention of training the many necessary state medical marijuana workers. After passing its first hurdle, Colorado’s newest marijuana bill is simply waiting for the final Senate “seal of approval” with an affirmative vote. While it’s true the new legislation didn’t fire up any heated debates as it easily cruised to a unanimous victory, many in Colorado’s statehouse are concerned about the remaining obstacles still obstructing the way of the full enactment of Amendment 64.

San Diego's District Attorney Makes The Process - The Punishment | Marijuana.com

When Dumanis asserts she is going after people who “hide behind state law” she should be reminded that these laws are for protecting patients

San Diego’s ever unpopular District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis – made her prosecutorial delay the penalty yesterday – dragging out the slow moving and tedious trial of Clint Guidry and Cameron Mitchell. What was their crime you ask? Making the mistake of following CA Prop 215 to the letter of the law, and legally possessing medical marijuana for medicinal use.

As she demonstrated in her failed run for San Diego’s top spot as Mayor, Dumanis has an issues telling the truth. Ms. Dumanis made the laughable claim that her office only goes after illegal marijuana dealers hiding behind California Prop 215, a misrepresentation exemplified by these two misguided marijuana cases.
