Denver May Shut Down Dozens of MMJ Businesses

Colorado -- Denver officials could soon shut down as many as 41 medical marijuana businesses as the city cleans up outstanding license applications that have been pending for years.All medical marijuana businesses in the city must be licensed by July 1, and the city has sent letters to dozens of businesses ahead of the deadline, warning that they must cease operations if they don't get their licenses by then.
"Failure to comply may result in law enforcement and administrative action," cautioned a letter sent to the businesses last week.Ashley Kilroy, Denver's coordinator for marijuana policy, said city officials have also visited the businesses  mostly cultivation facilities  to urge them to finish up the licensing process."We hope that they'll be in compliance and, if not, we'll have to figure out how we go about enforcing the order to cease operations," she said.The issue reaches back to the genesis of Colorado's regulated marijuana industry. Marijuana businesses in Colorado need both a state and local license to operate.When state and city officials began licensing medical marijuana shops in 2010, they allowed stores and affiliated businesses that were already operating to stay open while their applications were being reviewed. In regulatory parlance, such businesses were "operational pending."Dozens of businesses remained in that licensing limbo for years, and state and city regulators have only in the past year significantly chipped away at the backlog. When Denver officials sent a letter about the July 1 deadline earlier this year, it went to 101 businesses that still needed a city license.SnippedComplete Article: Denver Post (CO)Author: John Ingold, The Denver PostPublished: June 10, 2014Copyright: 2014 The Denver Post Website: openforum denverpost.comCannabisNews  Medical Marijuana Archives

Paul Armentano. Columbia NHTSA NIDA collaboration 
Paul, if you're reading this can you provide a short response to media articles regarding the Columbia NHTSA NIDA collaboration on mj and traffic fatalities? I'd like to repost it. I'm pretty sure there is correlation and causation. It also fails to mention mj staying in the body for up to a month. Please include links to accidents or fatalities going down in specific states.
