Denver Police Citing One Person Per Day

Colorado -- Since the start of legal recreational marijuana sales, Denver police have cited about one person per day for public pot smoking, the city's police chief said Monday.Chief Robert White told members of a City Council committee that officers issued nine citations for public marijuana consumption between Jan. 1 and Saturday. White said there have also been seven burglaries of marijuana businesses in that time, but only one of those occurred at a recreational marijuana store. The burglary numbers, White said, are in line with what the city has previously seen in the medical marijuana industry.
"Looking at the number of burglaries that we have in general and the number of burglaries we have of dispensaries, that number is probably relatively consistent," White said.The enforcement numbers are part of what Denver's new marijuana czar said Monday was a fairly problem-free start to the nation's first legal sales of marijuana from stores that can sell to anyone over 21 for any purpose. Ashley Kilroy, the executive director of marijuana policy for the city, said good communication between city leaders, police and store owners ensured that big crowds at the stores have not led to mass chaos."We were very lucky that everything went so smoothly," she said.SnippedComplete Article: Denver Post (CO)Author: John Ingold, The Denver PostPublished: January 13, 2014Copyright: 2014 The Denver Post Website: openforum denverpost.comCannabisNews  -- Cannabis Archives

Hope's Link to Missouri Pro-Prohib Cop
"Marijuana is more intoxicating and a more complex intoxication than alcohol. It has four times the cancer compounds that tobacco does," Moses said.I don't suppose those two statements can be scientifically demonstrated to be untrue wouldn't suade him.At this juncture in history, the prohibs are wounded animals. As such, they are lashing out as wantonly and viciously as ever. While their reactionary madness plays into our hands, we must keep up the nuanced truth-telling. Show 'em somethin', Show Me Cannabis!

Not everyone believes marijuana is harmless

Comment 3
CONFIRMED: The DEA Struck A Deal With Mexico's Most Notorious Drug'd think this would take down the prohibitionist's filthy house of lies and corruption. It ought to. But, like other things that I thought ought to end this debacle, and didn't, I'm not counting on it.

Here's What's Really Going On!
Confirmed: The DEA Struck A Deal With Mexico’s Most Notorious Drug CartelAn investigation by El Universal found that between the years 2000 and 2012, the U.S. government had an arrangement with Mexico’s Sinaloa drug cartel that allowed the organization to smuggle billions of dollars of drugs while Sinaloa provided information on rival cartels.Sinaloa, led by Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, supplies 80% of the drugs entering the Chicago area and has a presence in cities across the U.S.There have long been allegations that Guzman, considered to be “the world’s most powerful drug trafficker,” coordinates with American authorities.
Legalize It!

Good News, Mostly
"Smooth" is precisely the description the rest of us want to hear. Keep that stuph up, Denver. Pay attention, Seattle.Don't smoke in public -- or at least don't get caught. Don't give it to kids -- ever. Don't cause a car accident -- though I'm not really worried about this one, we cannot let the prohibs' direst fear show any semblance of truth.Good start. Continue. Rest of us are depending on you.Anybody else watch and be somewhat disappointed by Norm Kent's performance on Nancy DisGrace's MegaBully Witching Hour? I know it was superstacked against him, and that Ms. DisGrace had no intention whatsoever of presenting Mr. Kent's views as anything but modern reefer madness. Even so, I kept shouting "Norm, no!" at the TV whenever he got longwinded or off-track or didn't get to the point (points he assuredly knows extremely well) in ten words or less. Moreover, not once can I recall him citing a comparison to alcohol -- that's our low-hanging fruit! -- or emphasizing that NORML et al. does NOT condone non-medical cannabis for children -- which is the kneejerk strawman of the prohibs. He certainly wasn't going to win, but insofar as it matters, he probably kinda lost.
