CNN’s ‘High Profits’ tracks booming bud business in Colorado ski towns

Someday this will be a case study in business schools: the creation of a marijuana franchise starting with a lone store in a cute Victorian house on Main Street in Breckenridge. For viewers beyond Colorado, “High Profits” on CNN, an eight-part docu-series premiering April 19, may seem an outrageous curiosity. For locals accustomed to media scrutiny of the state’s legalized recreational weed industry, it’s just one more reality TV effort, hyped for suspense.

Marijuana Arrests In Colorado Down 95% Since Legalization, But Arrest Rates Still Twice As High ...

Arrests for possessing, growing and distributing pot have dropped significantly in Colorado since the state legalized marijuana in 2012, but black Coloradans are still far more likely to be arrested for such charges than whites. Although the number of overall marijuana arrests has plunged by 95 percent since 2010, the rate of arrests for blacks in the state remains 2.4 times higher than for whites, according to a study released last week by the New York City-based Drug Policy Alliance.

Colorado Lawmakers Scramble to Keep Millions in Marijuana Taxes

Robert Grandt worked in the grow room at 3D Cannabis Center in Denver last month. Hefty taxes on recreational marijuana have generated millions in state revenue. 

DENVER — In the State Capitol, they are calling it Refund Madness.

A year after Colorado became the first state to allow recreational marijuana sales, millions of tax dollars are rolling in, dedicated to funding school construction, marijuana education campaigns and armies of marijuana inspectors and regulators. But a legal snarl may force the state to hand that money back to marijuana consumers, growers and the public — and lawmakers do not want to.

Colorado bill banning welfare card use at pot shop ATMs heads to gov’s desk

Legislation that would prohibit welfare cards at Colorado marijuana dispensary ATMs or strip clubs has been sent to Gov. John Hickenlooper for action.

The Senate passed the bill Tuesday on a 23-12 vote.

Many dispensary ATMs are already set up to decline the electronic benefit cards, known as EBTs. But lawmakers say legislation is needed to ensure there’s no misuse and to avoid possible federal sanctions.

Some Democrats opposed the bill, saying it’s not clear that the misuse of the cards is widespread.

The bill doesn’t give the state a way to monitor ATM use for compliance. But a separate pending bill that also seeks to restrict the use of welfare cards does have an enforcement mechanism.

Cannabis Oil Update 2015

No one can accuse the Stanley Brothers of Colorado of not pushing the envelope in the development and availability of medical cannabis in the U.S.

 

Over the last year, they have single handedly changed the game.

 

With the passage of the federal Farm Bill in February of 2014, containing an amendment to legalize hemp production for research purposes – and the approval by the Colorado Department of Agriculture to grow hemp for commercial or research and development purposes, the Stanley brothers set in motion plans to grow their high-CDB / low-THC strains of cannabis outdoors on a 40-acre Colorado family farm.

Recreational Cannabis Use and Traditional Chinese Medicine

Many people are drawn to cannabis for its effects physically, mentally and emotionally. Medically, cannabis has some legitimate uses, however the scope of this article is limited to the recreational use of cannabis. The following is distilled from a lecture given by Marco Lam of Boulder, Colo.

Cannabis has a lot of side effects and problems with overuse, though most users choose to ignore these problems due to its psychedelic effects. While I am not a fan of the recreational use of any drug, it is not helpful to attack a patient's choice from the get-go, rather, I must create a context for patients on how cannabis impacts their health. To do that, we must go back to the principles of Chinese medicine.

The Cannabis Patch Production Begins in Aspen

Ganjaprenuer Josh Meacham can finally say he’s found a sweet spot to make his pot patches.

Meacham began production this week of the cannabis-infused patches at his lablike facility below the now-defunct Johnny McGuire’s Deli at 730 E. Cooper Ave.

RX Green is the name of the startup company with just a handful of employees. And it’s been awhile in the making.

At one time, Meacham had planned to manufacture the patches at the old Poppies Bistro Cafe building at 834 W. Hallam St., but that deal fell through, leading him to find a spot in the Buckhorn Arms building.
