All Things MJ with Jessica LeRoux - December 30, 2012

Hey Now,

Its time to be through with 2012, and 2013 should be a very educational and mind expanding year! I have big plans in the coming year to remain invested in the political process surrounding the cannabis industry, and to do my very best to keep you informed so that we can ensure that we all remain relevant in a rapidly changing regulatory system.
I have been out most of this past week with that wicked evil bad flu that has been going around, but Im fully recovered and ready to cook up some fun for your patients. Deliveries for next week will be delayed a day all the way around due to the Holiday on Monday/Tuesday but please feel free to let us know what you would like us to deliver and we will do it very happily. And as usual the savings are at the bottom of the news, and will be all year long in 2013! That said you shouldn't skip the homework, there are gonna be a lot of important issues that you will benefit from timely participation in.
Also about 5-6 of the Xmas cards we sent to all of you bounced back, so if you didnt get our card please lemme know so we can ensure you get our remembrance of our gratitude for your support in 2012! Thanks!

just a reminder that the legislative session in CO begins on January 9th, so if you can be at the capitol to kick off the session that is the day, more news on the opener next week! Also a reminder that the A-64 task force has their next general meeting on Monday 1-7-13.

I have a few interesting developments from the DOR regarding A-64, including this link to the new web page devoted to A-64. Check out this link, or you can listen to the audio from the 1st meeting here: I think this is a pretty impressive catalog of info, much better than the MMED's rule making process, so i am encouraged by this attention to detail and open sharing stance. What i think is most deserving of our attention right now is the section 10 offerings of regulatory info from both MMED, and Alcohol (didnt voters ask for "like alcohol?") blobcol=urldata&blobheader=application%2Fpdf&blobkey=id&blobtab
compare that with this, which one do we want to regulate like?

Heads up Larimer living folks, get to this meeting if you can please! County's first conversation over legal marijuana scheduled Three Colorado counties are already progressing toward banning recreational marijuana businesses, and Larimer County commissioners will meet Jan. 14 to begin shaping the local course for managing them.

A story from WA state on NPR had a quote which was interesting in light of the inane protestations of CO panelist "for profit addiction specialist" Thurstone.
Legalized Pot Creates Quandary For Adults In Wash. : NPR Roger Rothman is professor emeritus of social work at the University of Washington. He's studied marijuana abuse since the 1980s. He believes legalization may cause an uptick in use, at least at first. Nevertheless, he supported legalization because he thinks prohibition has led to an absolutist message for kids.
How unfortunate for those other states! lets hope they at least tried to match their legislation to their regulatory system.

This is pretty fucked up, if you and I cant advertise products we actually sell in this way, why can a liquor business advertise cannabis in such a misguided promotion of combined use of cannabis and alcohol. Booooooo, I call unfair double standards Mr Hickenlooper.
