The Great Colorado Weed Experiment

In January, Colorado defied the federal government and stepped with both feet into the world of legal recreational marijuana, where no state had gone before.

For seven months Coloradans have been lawfully smoking joints and inhaling cannabis vapors, chewing marijuana-laced candies and chocolates, drinking, cooking and lotioning with products infused with cannabis oil. They are growing their own weed, making their own hash oil and stocking up at dispensaries marked with green crosses and words like “health,” “wellness” and “natural remedies.” Tourists are joining in — gawking, sampling and tripping in hotel rooms. Business is growing, taxes are flowing, cannabis entrepreneurs are building, investing and cashing in.

Cannabis sales from January through May brought the state about $23.6 million in revenue from taxes, licenses and fees. That is not a huge amount in a $24 billion budget, but it’s a ...

Mark said: ".. BTW if your pot laced cookies and candies smell bad, then they aren't doing it right."
Remember the good ole days when chocolate brownies were a treat? One didn't have to add drugs to them.
My suggestion would be to save the money and the trouble and just have a plain brownie without the pot. Of course, if you insist on being a pothead, you could probably get it for free if you just say that you voted for the current com.-in-chief and that you live in a particular side of town. ..isn't that the way it works for all of the other "perks" and guv hand-outs? ..not trying to be divisive, just a realist.

Depression can have many physical causes, and many of these can be alleviated. Course I'll get bombarded for that (its all spiritual so take your psychotropic pills and see a Darwinist psychologist!). Anyone curious should look up what Pellegra did to the south. No, it wasn't imaginary, many were going crazy because their diet was destroying vitamin b's. A society that eats junk, eats and injects heavy metals into their body, etc is going to have depression bottom line. As to how individuals deal with this, they start arming themselves with the truth. For example, vitamin d and sun exposure is necessary. So they get people afraid of skin cancer, and the population is vitamin d deficient, most of America is vitamin d deficient, anyone who cares about health could look this up and see the ramifications are huge to this one thing. anyone can do a search with "vitamin d and depression". so then they go to a young college graduate who charges a $100 an hour to talk about their feelings. This is how distant we've become to sound teaching!

...always chasing that first high. Anyway, as a born again Christian, I was miraculously deliver from all a few.years ago and never looked back. Although I have pleaded every day since, the depression remains ever present which I don't understand. Anyway, so when.I.speak about MJ being a gateway drug, I.am referring to a specific.group, albeit, a very large group. I still thank God each and every day for what He brought me out from.

Thanks for the commet Grateful Servant.
In my experience, most people who turn to drugs suffer from some sort of trauma, whether it be emotional or sexual abuse, broken family, or depression of some sort. When I speak of MJ being a gateway, I have these types of people in mind who self medicate to escape or to pick them up from the depression that imprisons them. Major Depression is why I turned to anything I could get my hands on. Mostly stims and opiates. I was in a prison...a personal hell. I never got excited about anything, never looked forward to anything, and was basically emotionless. I found that drugs changed this for me. For the first time, I knew what it was like to feel happy, to be energetic, and to have people want to be around me because my whole personality changed. My story isn't much different than most who turn to drugs. Drugs become their best friend because they discover a world they have craved for so long. A world which they enjoy feeling happy and content in. A world that hasn't been possible by any other means. People like me also have addictive personalities so we tend to over medicate. We also tend to move on to bigger and "better" things as the original powers of any particular drugs begin to wane, or consume more and more, always cha

I'm surprised,mark, you just didn't pick up the stuff in Mexico? Then you could be feeling mellow all the way to Europe and not even need the in flight movie. Bill, very few people are forcing you to take FDA approved drugs. I have to say when I see advertisements for many of them on TV, The Cure looks as bad or worse than what is trying to fix. but so called natural foodssuch as honey, is poisonous in too great of an amount.

I would suggest people still read the article about thetrouble that marijuana is causing to the states that border Colorado. Is really a lengthy and detailed article.

"Space Cake" and brownies are the best for me. When I head back to the UAE in two weeks, I have a five hour layover in Amsterdam and I will be partaking ASAP. I look at occasional use as a treat. I'm rarely in Amsterdam, so it's special. It will be years before I get to have any again. The stuff available in Colorado and Seattle costs too much. Leave it to my home country to screw things up again and again. They could mess up a cup of coffee. BTW if your pot laced cookies and candies smell bad, then they aren't doing it right. A drug sniffing hound will get you, so don't get cocky, but a real pot laced baked good is going to smell sweet and taste nice. There is a whole drawn out process and art to making such confections, and should you choose to try one, it's best to make sure that it is quality. You can't just by some Betty Crocker or Pilsbury and dump weed in it--it's much more complicated, but worth it in my opinion.

Why would anyone want to ruin a cookie by putting pot in it? Maybe it's to offset the stench of the stuff? I guess one would have to acquire a taste for it, much like one has to acquire a taste for alcohol? That should be their first red flag. If it smells,don't ingest it.

It's peculiar how the Greek word pharmakeia is always trotted out to condemn those few drugs which are politically incorrect at the moment, but never applied to the thousands and thousands of drugs which are approved by the FDA and AMA, some with far more serious side-effects than the "demon weed." I could regale you with my past experiences, but I won't. This whole issue is a political issue and a money issue when it comes to deciding which drugs are approved and which aren't. It has never been decided purely in terms of the public health. For those who like government propaganda or a good laugh, go watch "Reefer Madness." If you'd rather be informed with facts, let me suggest a different video which can be found on Amazon at:

It's the marijuana cookies, candies, and drinks that are a subtle poison, and you can concentrate the stuff to give a person a psychotic break. By the way, smoking the stuff, will be just as encouraging to producing cancer and other illnesses as regular cigarettes. Tobacco products are probably more addictive, which is why people have such a hard time kicking the habit with those, Go, read the article, At Colorado’s borders, a dividing line over marijuana for other problems as well.

Hi Christopher -
I don’t envy your background but I acknowledge and respect your past experience and what your viewpoint brings to this forum. I will agree that people going to dealers will likely progress to other substances if other substances are made available by their dealer. But I disagree that Cannabis itself causes someone to take and become addicted to other substances. It absolutely has more to do with the connection to where the Cannabis comes from and the type of person buying. A dispensary that only sells Cannabis – or a dealer with heroin, cocaine, meth…willing to give a buyer a sample or deal with their purchase. A person with an "I will try anything once" mindset will simply try anything once, or twice...and the motive of the dealer is repeat business and a customer hooked on hard drugs is easier to keep...hooked.

In my personal experience, the most damaging and addictive “drugs” I ever took came from a Doctor.

Yes, SF – I did.

I would suggest that get real and Christopher are talking about two different types of people. I would also argue that the seed has a wide range of qualities depending on how its cultivated, on one end to make people drug addicted, and the other for textiles, and somewhere in the middle, the oils and leaves used for medicine, and in many cases does not have a mind altering effect.

I've known many people who have tendency to alcoholism, but I wouldn't ban the grape. So many are wanting to bring the grape back.

I've watched too many loved ones suffer in this medical paradigm that keeps natural remedies from the people. Its a great tragedy to watch. Researchers around the world are developing great helps to our chronic issues in these areas and they will continue on applying them to their own people while we police ourselves, swat team our small farmers and survive on little white pills.

anyone who cares to know, should look up pawpaw and cancer and see what a researcher at Purdue has learned after 30 yrs of cultivation. This will never be allowed here, by the way. Pharma says no, therefore its no for you and your loved ones. They loved their chemo too much.

also Christopher, they seem to find that marijuana on its own has its problems. http://newsroom.heart.org/news/marijuana-use-may-increase-heart-complications-in-young-middle-aged-adults ( marijuana use may increase heart complications in young and middle-aged adults ). two young men in Germany apparently died of heart arrhythmias due to their use of pot.

You seem to see and read what you choose to, Get Real. I'm not some guy who has led a sheltered life, being shielded and out of touch from the darker side of life. I have been thru all you have been thru and probably more. I just don't attack and blame everyone for it. As for my opinions on this thread, with the exception of heroin, I have used and been addicted to everything many times over. I was also a mid level, fairly "respected" dealer of pretty much every drug, including heroin, and recreational chems for many, many years. I was also very well known in the underground online world of drugs, even modding two of the largest drug boards that had a concentration of all the heavyweights of the trade. I knew everyone who is anyone from coast to coast and abroad. My experience with drugs and the world of drugs qualifies me to express very well informed, real world opinions based upon hard experience. I also got to see how people would begin with MJ, slowly over time sprinkle it with various other drugs, and then move on to experiment with other things. I have witnessed the progressions many times over, and they
