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.

Marijuana Legalization: Colorado Will Defend Pot Bill Against Lawsuit From Oklahoma And ...

Coffman announced Friday that the state will defend its legalization of marijuana for sale medicinally and recreationally against a lawsuit filed by the attorneys general of Nebraska and Oklahoma.
