an herbal thought…

so i have been pretty intrigued by the entire medical marijuana experiment in Colorado… from the day it started to now, i have had so many different thoughts about it… when it started i only had positive thoughts… as time has passed, i have seen what it has done to positively and negatively to Colorado…

when the medical marijuana laws passed, the state of Colorado morphed… it was interesting to hear the buzz around the city… people were beyond excited that it was legalized… doctors were handing medical licenses out like candy! it seemed too easy to get your card… and it was…

as the amount of patients grew, obviously, the demand for weed increased… dispensaries were popping up everywhere! grow warehouses were filling the air with that weed smell in RiNo (river north Denver district)! the weed business was developing extremely fast…

lately, there have been more regulations on how to get your medical license… this has decreased the amount of customers… even with the decline in customers, the growers continued production at a similar rate… this couldn’t be good…

i am not sure on the exact time frame but it seems like within 2 years the marijuana market is saturated and fucked in Colorado! in the beginning, there were signs advertising 1/8’s for $40 (street value of $50)… those same signs are showing $25! it’s completely insane and out of control…

i do not have a medical card and i am not a regular smoker… i am, however, a believer that marijuana has great qualities about it… after the madness i have seen out here, i believe a different route should be taken to its acceptance… it should be nationally decriminalized on state and federal levels… the federal government has other priorities to handle and will never be able to legalize pot… the weed business needs to return to the streets where it started… it took care of itself when it was there…

i will not go into the reforms i would make… marijuana is a plant that naturally grows just like tobacco… it’s nowhere near as dangerous as alcohol… we need to reevaluate… that’s all… open our eyes…

peace and noLove
