Fort Collins as a Hub for Pot Users?

Colorado -- Fort Collins isn't trying to establish itself as a regional hub for medical-marijuana users, the mayor and other officials insist.But critics say that by allowing as many as 23 dispensaries to continue operating, even though most violate distance requirements from churches and schools, city leaders have done just that. They also say the city should cap the number of medical-marijuana businesses in town.
"My main concern is that we're saying this a medication with no harmful side effects," said Scoot Crandall, executive director of Team Fort Collins, which fights substance abuse among kids. "We're already seeing use rates among young people go up, and pot is not compatible with the healthy development of the brain."Most of the restrictions Fort Collins is putting on medical-marijuana businesses are tougher than what the state requires, said Mayor Doug Hutchinson.Hutchinson voted with the 5-2 majority last week to grandfather in medical-cannabis businesses that are already operating in the city or are in the process of getting a license."One of our main goals was that we were going to follow the law in a way that helps avoid the possibility that Fort Collins would become a growth-and-distribution center for medical marijuana," Hutchinson said. "And I think we have been pretty faithful to that in many ways."

I can't do much to help you but I'm with you in spirit. I'm glad things are beginning to look up for you. The stress caused by this isn't good for your health.A friend of mine passed away last year at 50 years of age. His last words were "keep fighting the good fight."I will, until I die, keep fighting the good fight and I'm sure you will, too.The Reverend Bud Green
