Reader: Marijuana legalization advocates -- can't we all just get along?
One commenter called for all parties in this particular dispute to put down their arms and give peace a chance.
Infighting in advance of this critical opportunity in 2012 is not even permissible let alone practical. Fort Collins is now on alert for losing 23 mmj businesses to follow suit with what happened in Windsor, Loveland and Greeley. The backlash is occurring because we're not mobilizing united fronts to defend the rights of MMJ patients and their caregivers. To date, it seems as if a few vested law offices and some dispensary owner activists are carrying our water. Time for the whole of Colorado's health and wellness proponents (patients, family of patients, employers of patients, neighbors of patients) to step up. If there's a means by which to aggregate and coordinate communication to the mass of us then we might get out in front of these ill-intentioned legal assaults on our health security. Is it Colorado's NORML chapter that might best serve this function? Who can get this in gear so I don't have to start home gardening with a resultant effect of the neighbors' kids no longer being allowed to play with mine?
