New Laws for CO Medical Marijuana

We have commented much this year on Colorado's medicinal marijuana fiasco. Our view has always been that medicinal marijuana is a fraud and truely a front for the legalization of this drug.

We have also advocated for the repeal of the 2008 voter approved amendment. Perhaps that will happen in 2012.

When a majority of Coloradans voted for this measure in 2008, it was under the premise that a few Coloradans would have legal access to it for pain management purposes under a physician's supervision. Time has shown that premise to be false.

Yesterday, Governor Bill Ritter signed several laws that inject "regulations" upon medicinal marijuana and its use. These measures are mere tokens. Here is the story.

We have a marijuana problem in Colorado. Voter approved or not, there are now more medicinal marijuana outlets in the Denver metro area than Starbucks state wide!

The problem with a repeal of the amendment now is that the legislators, led by Chris Romer, have liberalized the state laws on marijuana. Even if the amendment was repealed, we would be in worse shape than before.
