    Got a pair of the touring risers on my DIY split. Worth the money for sure! I noticed much better edge control and improved touring. You will be happy with them!

    I think there is way too much paranoia about feds/cops from other states cracking down. Its not like there arent thousands of people in this state that are currently smoking/growing. Was it really this huge secret that lots of people smoke pot in colorado? I just dont think legalizing it is going to trigger a huge federal crackdown on citizens in this state. Maybe thats wishful thinking but I know many people who grow in my small community and have done so for quite some time with no interference from police. I know even more people who smoke, they dont go around making a big public scene about it but they havent been harassed by police. You think that now that it is legal the feds are going to come harder? It just doesn’t seem to make sense to me. :scratch:

    I’m very proud of the people of Colorado today! Not only did we take a HUGE step towards progress on the terms of personal freedoms and liberties but we are making big steps in allowing people to choose what type of government we wish to have. The people have spoken, no more wasted tax dollars on fighting against non-violent offenders for using a substance that has been proven to be less harmful than a number of already legal substances. The savings on law enforcement, incarceration and prosecution will be huge! Not to mention the social aspect of ruining someones life over pot. Then you add in the eventual tax revenue once the commercial rules are set up and there is a lot to be saved. Shit it’s like killing 5 birds with one stone.

    There are so many unanswered questions about what will happen commercially with this. I’m not sure how it will shake out. I’m optmistic that proper rules and regs will be put in place to create a good and thriving marijuana economy for our state. This isn’t even addressing the hemp side of the law which also has potential for huge huge benefits. That being said I think there will be strong opposition from a number of counties and cities. Fortunetly this will only affect the commercial side IMO. I think that for the average citizen in CO that wishes to use marijuana responsibly a huge step has been taken.

    Will the feds come knocking on every door of every smoker in CO ans Wash State? I just dont see it. I think they already would be doing so if they were going to. Growing small amounts for personal use is a huge privilage that we now can enjoy. Again I dont see the feds as being able or wanting to come crack down on people growing 3-6 plants. It just isn’t worth their time. There are so many other areas that they are going to be focused on with real crime and real criminals.

    I hope this starts a movement nationally but only time will tell! For now I’m going to celebrate this victory in the best way I know how :doobie:

    I want marijuana prohibition ended, however I would prefer we do it right the first time. I don’t think the federal government will just stand by while this happens, so they are either going to change their laws or begin to prosecute people in states that have legalized/decriminalized. Which is more likely? What does history show? While these new initiatives have certainly done a lot to raise awareness about marijuana prohibition, I’m not sure its going to be the best step for the activists who are willing to open shops, grow openly, etc once these laws are in place. I’m fairly well acquainted with a dispensary owner who shop got raided back in March. He’s facing quite some legal ramifications, but he’s back at it again.

    Just speaking towards Colorado but I believe the Feds have only shut down dispensaries that were in violation of state law. I agree there will still be obstacles to overcome for those who wish to persue a career in marijuana cultivation. However, thats a small amount of people compared to the number of people who consume marijuana and would be benefitted by this law. But to speak to points others made you have to get the ball rolling somewhere. It would be politcal suicide for someone in Washington to come out in favor of country wide legalization. Start at the state level, get some data together about the affects (revenue generation, job creation, abuse rates, etc…) and then build on a bigger scale.

    Here in Colorado its a big deal for the average person. Growing small amounts for personal use would become legal. The feds aren’t going to be going around busting people growing 3-6 plants. Just wouldn’t be possible. So you could now legally grow your own and not have to fear the backlash. For the average citizen in Colorado its a pretty big deal.

    I really enjoyed Further. Went to the Fort Collins premiere and it was cool to see on the big screen. I was surprised not to see Xavier in any of the parts. Anybody know why?
