Dispensary Debate Opens at Capitol

Denver -- As state lawmakers prepared for their first debate over a bill regulating medical-marijuana dispensaries today, a group of marijuana activists gathered outside the Capitol to denounce the proposal."Do not be fooled," attorney Rob Corry told the crowd. "Some elements of the government are trying to take away your constitutional rights."
The bill — House Bill 1284 — would impose new licensing and regulatory rules on the state's rapidly expanding medical-marijuana industry. It was introduced early last month and will receive its first public hearing today, in the House Judiciary Committee, after lawmakers spent the past several weeks negotiating changes to the measure.A rewrite of the bill expected to be unveiled at the hearing today will require dispensaries to be licensed with the state and local governments and to grow most of the marijuana they sell. But the new version would also allow for separately licensed wholesale marijuana growers or marijuana product-makers. Perhaps the biggest change is dispensaries would be allowed to operate as for-profit companies, whereas previous drafts required dispensaries to be non-profits.

Gone Fishin’
From the link in #5“”Adams County District Attorney Don Quick agrees, saying voters did not approve dispensaries when they passed Amendment 20 in 2000. "I don't think constitutionally that dispensaries are authorized. The voters back in 2000 said you can either grow it yourself or have a primary care giver grow it for you and that caregiver has substantial responsibility for this patient. So how is that consistent with having the dispensaries as described today with hundreds of patients where they do nothing but walk in and get their marijuana and pay their money and leave. That's not a primary care giver," Quick said. "What we have now is a lot of abuse by doctors and people going and getting cards. It takes more time to get a fishing license now. You get asked more questions on a fishing license than you do getting your medical marijuana card."”The should be no questions asked at all...period...Bad enough you have to get ‘permission from the king’ to go thing you know they will say they don’t ask enough ‘questions’ regarding people who want to go fishing, and need to change that legislation, and raise the fees of course...Big brother just wants more and more control/coin over their subjects...Re-legalize...and let people get on with their lives!!! nit-picking limits, no cards, no ‘permissions’...scrap the fishing/hunting license process along with it!!! Just say ‘No’...
