    According to this article Colorado is having a problem with weed that is grown legally but then sold on the black market. In my opinion Colorado should be focusing on more important things than weed being sold illegally.

    they want to do away with 99 plant counts and people forming co-ops to pool their plant counts together into huge grows.

    our neighbors kansas and nebraska need to worry about the meth and economic problems in their own back yards

    This came about because of numerous "close-by" states suing CO because of the massive amounts of CO grown pot being sold out of state without the government getting their taxes......

    The bill passed, it'll be 16 plants now instead of the very generous 99. Turns out no human can smoke 99 plants in any reasonable amount of time, like 5 years.

    That is the attitude of the typically stupid stoner with no clue that fucks everything up for everybody else.

    If Colorado doesn't crack down on illegal sales, the Federal Government can then negate Colorado's state law and once again make marijuana completely illegal in the state.

    If Colorado can't police it's own law and allows the interstate sales to continue, the Federal Government WILL step in. In fact, if you search my posting history you will find that I've warned against that very thing. That's the thing Jeff Sessions is BEGGING for.

    So is that what you really want to happen, or had your rather Colorado take care of it and keep it legal?

    It is, as I warned before, the idiot, brainless dope smokers desperate for a dollar that will and constantly do set back legalization by decades every single chance they get.

    Stop being so fucking greedy and ruining it for the rest of us!

    They should focus on the arseholes making all these drugs that put people into the ER. Rather than those of us growing a harmless plant.

    Wrong. Entirely.

    If Colorado's law is ever going to hold water for the long haul, they MUST come down hard on illegal sales. If they don't, and allow illegal sales to continue, then that proves the Federal Government is right and that States can't police it and as such have no jurisdictional or legal right to legalize it to begin with.

    In other words, it will be the end of any hope of ever legalizing marijuana anywhere in this country. Forever.

    Stop being stupid.

    I don't know about you. But I like my weed poison free.

    Also. Doesn't the government fuck you out of enough money already? Do they honestly have to have their fingers in this pie too?

    Not so much. If the feds want to seize control they can do it whenever they want. The Utah lawsuit is more than enough ammo, but they really don't need ANY justification. In the end it won't matter how diligent CO or any other state is in trying to keep people from selling without a license. Sessions will move either way. And he has all the laws he needs to move. Rec growing and legal consumption is in his sights. He is just marshaling resources.

    If you want to see a case where no fucks are given, look at homebrewing. It is federally legal to brew up to 5 gallons a year at home, and no, you can't sell it. But 5 gallons isn't even one batch for most homebrewers. When I brewed, I had about 5 or 6 five gallon soda kegs at any time. The ATF could have busted me and put me away for years.

    No fucks were given. I could have sold it to anyone over 21. I could have sold it at picnics or festivals (I knew friends who did). As long as the event had a license to serve, no fucks were given.

    But with weed, lots of fucks have lots to give. The states should just chill and be rational. Sure, bust the houses with hundreds of plants stealing power at the meter. That isn't home growing. It's commercial production. You can get busted for commercial farming at home if you aren't zoned for it. Same approach.

    It's a plant bro!!?? So the Gov goes from controlling the shit out of it to just controlling it? AGAIN. It's a plant. Anyone 21 and up should be able to produce an acceptable amount. And sell it/give it away to anther legal aged person. Next they'll tell you you can't grow tomatoes.

    Yeh, but interstate sales brings more pressure to shut them down and also brings in the FBI

    99 plants was essentially no limit at all, cuz who the hell can tend to more than 99 trees anyway?
