Colorado -- A medical marijuana bill months in the making could see more changes Tuesday when state lawmakers for the first time take up the complicated task of regulating the quickly growing industry.In Senate Bill 109, sponsor Sen. Chris Romer, D-Denver, focuses on more closely linking doctors and their pot-seeking patients by breaking links between doctors and dispensaries, requiring doctors recommending marijuana to have licenses in good standing and requiring a bonafide doctor-patient relationship.
Romer said there are already four amendments ready for debate Tuesday. They would:* Eliminate the requirement that medical marijuana patients who are 21 years old or younger go before a medical review board, a provision the pro-cannabis crowd has fought. The current draft exempts young military veterans. Instead, under the amendment, younger patients would have to seek a second opinion from another doctor before obtaining marijuana. * Revoke licenses from patients who run afoul of courts or are placed in substance abuse programs, though patients could later reapply.

social engineering
Here is someone who commented on that article about the failed war on drugs.
Couldn't help it, this guy has a good read on things....I think the last laugh is on We the People. It was We who lost and They who won. No, they did not win the "war" on the terms they set out. But why assume their stated objectives had anything to do with the Oligarchy's true objectives? When do the stated objectives of the masters of war have anything to do with their real objectives? It was about getting rid of surplus populations, and the threat of their agitation for social change, by rounding them up in prison. In '69 the oligarchs were worried about a possible revolutionary uprising. Now, The People are solidly under iron boot heel of the corrupt crime syndicate that runs the country. There is no further need for mass roundups of pot smokers. The article writer should read Lockdown Nation, by Christian Parenti, about the REAL reason behind the so-called "War on Drugs." As with the "War on Terror," and Cold War and all the other wars, the real purposes of the architects of war always contrast with their stated aims. The "War on Drugs" had nothing to do with ending drug use, but with social engineering, i.e., management of surplus populations (from the POV of the oligarchy).

Yes, the news is out
I have always said, marijuana arrests are easy pickings for local law enforcement and the industrial prison complex. If they take his license away, he is screwed.Not sure you have seen this: can only hope the madness ends soon.

People keep in mind this is a direct violation of patients rights as stated under Amd 20. So no worries at least not here. I refuse to listen to anything that is not voted on by the people.

Oh My Lord!
I am not happy.This is going to be worse than the Phelps scandalization and they are going to lock him up and probably seize everything he owns or ever will own.I'm horrified!

 The limo driver
Unless there's a miracle, they're going to hang that guy out to dry.We all KNOW that there are some people who, though perhaps under the influence of the cannabis plant's chemicals, are still excellent drivers. Much like there are many people that consume chemicals of similar and other sorts, legal and illegal, and what not of some sorts, maintaining control of themselves, knowing their limits and all, like antidepressants, antihistamines, caffeine and other stimulants, and pain relievers, and are still quite capable drivers.This is awful.The prohibitionists are going to crucify him.
