    Wish this show would never end. Hopes for a spin off with just the dispensaries. Children walkin the grocery store pass the beer and wine all day. Then go home to where their parents have a liquor or beer in fridge.oh lets no forget the parents who let their teenagers drink at home. I undertand no growing or smoking in public. We have a campaign to educate children not to drink untill legal

    How come we cant educate our children why they cant until their legal or needed. Our sociey would rather drown our children with alcohol for more drunk drivers and drunk idiots to pay money to our legal sysems. Plus i could watch the stanley brothers all day they are hott! !!!!

    They have to stop calling it medical marijuana, its marijuana and it can be used for medicinal purposes,
    just like blackberry brandy can help a cold. It should be legalized and sold in smoke shops or liquor stores and a oz. of weed should cost no more than a qt. of vodka.

    Medical Marijuana is a State Constitutional right , Thank God. That means it was voted and passed as Majority.The people spoke out about a positive medical alternative for some. It’s ironic that the nay Sayers can’t read the headlines. N.Y.Ranger strongman just died from Oxycontin and Alcohol poisoning.The prescription pill round up netting 4,000 lbs of unsafe and unwanted medicine. It took semis to haul off that many little pills. Just watched a DR. Drew special on prescription drugs killing towns. Mothers crying out for help as their children and spouses are dying or addicted,
    This is Mr. Martinez’s answer not ours ( That’s the enlighten part). I work with patients everyday who express the positive difference in their medication and lives. These positives help their lives and families too. We have a fibromyalgia/lupus patient they want her on morphine which she hates. She needs a small amount M.M a day to eat and reduce pain. We deliver for free (40 miles round trip) an charge only once a month because of her payments, at reduced rates. Us money grubbers as Smith/Martinez would have you believe is false. M.M.Wellness centers are in business so we are broke as every business ,we pay taxes,but have MORE restrictions and rules which makes for expense.

    Passed in 1999 things have changed. More patients. Growing Medicine takes 6 months, Lots of people can’t grow/skills, are not physically fit or have no money. Individuals took care of Individuals. Police and Tax man upset. So the call to make it safe,reliable, registered and for Adult Patients only. M.M.Wellness centers, City council, Attorneys and people meetings which you never attended and voiced their opinion in open discussion and came to excellent fair dissension. ALL the patients, Fort Collins and industry under attack for YOUR selfish reasons and fears.
    Chaulk up Whitney Houston, Anna Nicole and Son. and thousands more,

    So have your Drunkfest , Budwiser Team Fort Collins, BEER Capital of N.Co.

    I’m all for the concept of legalization as i’ve seen too many good peoples lives turned uspside down for illegal marijuana production/cultivation. Hell, even Pat Robertson came out today with a supportive statement about our jails being overcrowded with persons convicted of this victimless crime.

    Anyone can now see the Prop 300 November results on the internet. Too bad the capitalists Stanley “Brokaw” spokesbrother radio ads bravado didn’t win more support. But seriously, what did they expect. Their opponents were waging a morality war with bad statistics and Increasing the parameters of the Stanley’s paranoia. Did it ever occur to the Stanley’s (and the “model”??) that they had everything to lose? Why did they not seek professional media consultant assistance? Not enough money????? HA. See the previous blog, 1Humanfactor, and maybe understand how benevolent action really works. Incidentally, what did all these rogues do for a living prior to their 15 minutes (oops unfortunately, several hours) of Nat Geo fame????

    I can’t believe a reputable and professional organization like National Geographic would broadcast a show about an illegal drug. The show indirectly advocates the use of marijuana by desensitizing the public (a weekly series) to the effects of marijuana can have on individuals and a family. If National Geographic wants to have a single episode on the use of this drug for medicinal purposes, thats fine. But I find it unconscionable that they would do a series on the subject.
