Friday, October 2, is the deadline for public comments on the Colorado Medical Board's proposed changes to the state's Medical Marijuana Registry. The changes would make obtaining a medical marijuana recommendation much more difficult in Colorado, as it would force those seeking recommendations to undergo physical examination, a background check of medical records, imaging studying or laboratory testing and risk assessment— which includes looks at patient and family history of substance abuse, physical abuse and mental and emotional health. View the proposed regulations at the Department of Regulatory Agencies website, and send your comments to email@example.com.
Medical marijuana dispensary Simply Pure will host Real Talk with Jason Cranford— two lectures on the uses of CBD oil followed by a Q & A session— on Saturday, October 3, at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Each lecture covers the uses of Haleigh's Hope, which is a CBD oil used to fight conditions of epilepsy, cerebral palsy, intractable seizures, Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis and Chron's disease, among other ailments. Attending the discussion is free, but RSVP is required as there are only 25 seats available for each lecture. Call 720-507-7873 to reserve a spot. 21+
