    Chris Romer is a complete tool. A clown walking around in an expensive suit pretending to be a politician. A scum-bag who everyone around the State Capital knows isn't sharp enough to get out of his own way. He couldn't write a Bill that made any sense if you spotted him everything but his name and date-of-birth. God help us if we reelect him to any office higher than County Clerk--we have no one but ourselves to blame if we do.

    Yep, what a jerk.

    The bill is biting CMMR in the ass for their failed lobbying attempts. There is a lot that is unconstitutional, but unfortunately the patients will have to pay to get it overturned. Shame on Chris Romer for trying to become Mayor of Denver on the backs of patients. He will lose.

    Any time the government attempts to regulate what's left of the free market, you are going to see these kinds of problems. Citizens attempting to shackle other free citizens by enforcing their own pet peeves. No good thing is going to come from more bills unless they are bills repealing existing anti-pot and other victimless crime laws.

    You look at this as if Romer wanted to control the dispensaries. No, He wants to shut down the medical marijuana industry. That will be accomplished if this bill is passed. Requiring the dispensaries to grow 70% will require growing more than 99 plants in one location and result in likely prosecution under US Federal law. This bypasses the State Attorney's office and puts in the hands of Federal prosecutors and jury's (also exempting any medical marijuana evidence to be presented because MM is not recognized in Federal Court). A single phone call by police officials to DEA regarding suspected State non-compliance and the dispensary is shut down. It is a very sly bill and it is a work around of the people's will and State Constitution. Romer knows exactly what he is doing.

    They'll argue this right up until complete legalization rolls around. Geez, I really dislike power hungry politicians. Every time I see one I feel like I need a shower.

    By closing most of the dispensaries, Romer will completely destroy the needed supply of medical cannabis to deal with the approximately 100,000 patients in Colorado. It doesn't take a Ph.D in Economics to realize that this will drive prices up and drive quality down.

    And contrary to Romer's rhetoric, dispensing is indeed mentioned in the Amendment to Colorado's Constitution. Article XVIII § 14(2)(d) makes specific reference to "acquisition, possession, manufacture, production, use, sale, distribution, dispensing, or transportation of marijuana."

    This bill will indeed run out most of the small to mid-size businesses to essentially monopolize/limit the sale of medical cannabis to a few individuals with an absurd amount of money ready to pay the absurd proposed licensing fees...

    Natural competition would thin the dispensary herd; increase patient access to cannabis (especially in remotre areas of CO) , and increase the quality and needed variety of medicine 4 different conditions
