Re: “Cashing In

"If our representatives don't hear that, then we have issues beyond marijuana legalization."

Indeed, this has always been the hang-up. Those issues are exemplified by our current Attorney General, namely, unrelenting ignorance and bigotry based on the misinformation and outright racism from which marijuana prohibition sprang in the 1930's. His pronouncement that, "Good people don't use marijuana," still resonates among law makers to the extent that even though legalization is spreading, it still involves unnecessary restrictions and costs to users. Despite abundantly clear evidence, the new laws reflect a lack of acceptance among legislators that marijuana is dramatically less harmful than alcohol or tobacco. Yet, they see no problem with those toxic products being available at every corner market.

Re: “Hemp is Hot

Finally, the institutionalized, irrational fear of all things cannabis is fading away.

Re: “Letter to the Editor

Nonsense. None of these first, overly cautious laws are ideal. The rules will be adjusted over time just as they are in other places.

Re: “High society’s highest members

Many of us didn't just smoke for a while and move on. We continue to enjoy cannabis and have discovered that it is a blessing for us as we age. Vote YES on Prop 205!

Re: “Legalization Props

It's fascinating how the fear of "Marihuana" first instilled in the public mind in the 1930's through blatantly deceitful and racist propaganda has endured to this day. The folks at ARDP and their ilk are still drinking that antique, polluted kool-aid. Fortunately, their numbers are rapidly declining along with their delusions of doom.

Vote yes on Prop 205! It's not perfect, but much better than prohibition. Laws in Colorado are evolving to be more reasonable as the benefits of legalization accrue and fears subside. Same will happen here.
