County To Review Pot Farm Proposal

Colorado -- Boulder County Commissioners on Tuesday will consider whether to schedule a public hearing on the Land Use Department’s approval of an application that could eventually lead to the growing and storage of medical marijuana on a farm north of Longmont.At issue is a proposed land-use change that would allow “intensive agricultural use” of the 67-acre property at 10437 Yellowstone Road — specifically, the cultivation, harvesting and drying of medical marijuana plants inside the farm’s five existing enclosed steel buildings.
The farm, part of which once was a feed yard for chickens producing organic eggs, is owned by Cyd and Steve Szymanski.Steve Mullner, a Laramie, Wyo., city councilman and businessman, has said he plans to purchase the farm from the Szymanskis if the county approves the changing of the property’s permitted land use from its current “commercial feed yard” designation to “intensive agricultural.”While Colorado law wouldn’t allow non-state-resident Mullner to grow marijuana there, the land-use change would allow him to buy the property and resell it to someone who qualifies for a state medical marijuana license.In June, the Board of County Commissioners adopted changes to the Land Use Code that will essentially prohibit most new medical-marijuana dispensaries or growing operations from locating in rural Boulder County’s agricultural zoning districts.But the Szymanskis’ and Mullner’s application was submitted prior to the commissioners’ action to amend the Land Use Code. Unless the commissioners reverse the Land Use Department’s approval, a future owner could grow marijuana inside the farm buildings there as a “non-conforming use.”Mullner or a future owner would still have to meet a number of conditions, such as prohibitions against the buildings being used as residences or for retail medical-marijuana sales.Mullner’s plan and the Land Use Department’s Aug. 5 approval of the application have drawn protests from a number of nearby landowners who have complained a marijuana growing operation would attract criminals and lower property values.Boulder County commissioners at their Tuesday business meeting are expected to decide whether to “call up” the staff-approved medical marijuana proposal for a future public hearing, or to allow the department’s approval to stand.The commissioners aren’t expected to take any public testimony Tuesday, although the commissioners will be given all the comments the Land Use Department has received previously.The commissioners’ business session will start at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday in the third-floor meeting room in the Boulder County Courthouse, 1325 Pearl St., Boulder.Source: Daily Times-Call, The (Longmont, CO)Author: John Fryar, Longmont Times-Call Published: August 23, 2010Copyright: 2010, The Daily Times-CallContact: opinion times-call.comWebsite: Medical Marijuana Archives

You're welcome and thank you for all you do. Maybe Neil will sing one of his new songs that will be on his new CD at Farm-Aid. He sings about Hash and Marijuana in the song and other things too! It's called the Hitchhiker.

Boulder County Delays Decision on Public Hearing for Proposed Pot FarmBy Laura Snider, Camera Staff WriterAugust 24, 2010The Boulder County commissioners delayed a decision Tuesday on whether to schedule a public hearing on an application that could eventually allow a one-time egg farm to become a large medical marijuana farm.The Land Use Department has already approved the application for the 67-acre site north of Longmont.The commissioners in June adopted code changes that prohibit new medical marijuana dispensaries or growing operations in the parts of Boulder County that are zoned for agricultural use, but the application for the Longmont-area property was submitted before that.Laramie, Wyo., Councilman Scott Mullner says he plans to buy the property. He couldn't grow marijuana because he's not a Colorado resident, but has said he could resell it to someone who can.The Associated Press contributed to this report.Copyright: 2010 Daily CameraURL:

Canada's Cannabis Car
By Nikki Gordon-BloomfieldPublished: August 24, 2010  As we're faced with an increasingly large world population and ever-dwindling resources the race is on to produce cars that not only produce zero tailpipe emissions, but ones that are green to manufacture too.But what is the ultimate material for cars? Steel is strong, but hardly light enough to make ultra-efficient vehicles. Many plastics are based on oil, and composite materials like carbon fibre are difficult and costly to manufacture and repair.Enter the Kestrel. Designed and engineered by Motive Industries, a Canadian firm based in Alberta, BC the fully electric car features a body shell made of hemp--which may be better known as Cannabis Sativa L.The hemp for the Kestrel's body is grown by Alberta Innovates Technology Futures (AITF) under license from the Canadian government.Complete Article:
