Pueblo County Approves Recreational Marijuana Club Rules
Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, July, 1st 2014 by THCFinder
I have not visited Colorado this year yet, but I definitely want to. Starting January 1st, recreational marijuana sales have been occuring all over Colorado. While price gouging is common, I still want to go into a store and make a legal purchase so that I can scratch it off of my marijuana bucket list. My Oregon friends that have traveled to Colorado have told me that the only knock they have on Colorado is that it’s hard to find legal places to consume marijuana as an out of state resident. You can’t consume marijuana in public, and most hotels don’t allow consumption in their rooms, which makes it hard to consume the marijuana that was legally purchased at a store.
It sounds like in Pueblo County, Colorado marijuana clubs have been approved that will help with that situation. Last week Pueblo County commissioners voted to approve some changes to marijuana club rules. Marijuana clubs must follow rules outlined in the Indoor Clean Air Act, which means no smoking indoors – smoking has to occur on a patio out of public view. Vaporizers and edibles are OK inside of the facilities. Selling marijuana is forbidden at the clubs, and club owners can’t be affiliated with retail outlets.
The clubs do allow guest passes and/or temporary memberships to allow out of state customers to frequent the establishments. Per The Pueblo Chieftain:
Tommy Eubanks spoke in favor of the ordinance. He said he was from Texas and that his wife suffers from multiple sclerosis.
“We’re spending about $10,000 to $15,000 in this county but there’s nowhere for us to experiment to see what works for us,” he said.
Medical marijuana clubs have existed for a long time in other states. However, these clubs are for patients, not the general public. I can’t wait to go to Colorado, make my first legal purchase, and hangout at a club to talk the toke.
Does That Look Like Pot To You?

Fast food is gross. Yes, we may love it. But it's gross. There have been many reports of people finding even more disgusting things IN the food... Rat heads, chicken feet, human semen. Yeah... Fast food can be pretty nasty. But people everywhere still pull up to drive thrus, order double cheese burgers, and eat themselves stupid. But if you happen across a certain McDonalds in Iowa, you might find something a little more pleasant in your meal then the aforementioned abominations.
In April, a couple driving in Ottumwa, Iowa decided to hit up the local McDonald's around 8:15pm for some cheeseburgers. They snagged two doubles and headed home. But after taking at least one bite of the meal each, they noticed that the burgers contained something other then the typical cheese/ketchup/onions/pickles/mustard. It seemed that the burgers had the added of ingredient of what looked and smelled like marijuana. Upon noticing the green vegetative matter, the couple went back to the McDonalds and informed the managers of what they had found.
Ottumwa Police Lt. Jason Bell didn't have a comment on how much marijuana was actually found on the burger but it "appears to be consistent with marijuana". The substance still has to be tested at the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation so it's unsure what the substance actually was (who knows, it might have been bad lettuce). The substance was sent out as soon as possible and in the meantime, the cops tried to figure out how the cannabis could have made it's way in to the food in the first place. The McDonald's remained open after the report as well and when asked by USA Today to comment on the finding, the manager promptly said "no comment" and hung up.

Who Is Chris Christie And Why Marijuana Lovers Need To Know
You may know him as the man who had no answer for the father asking him to please not let his daughter die (referring to the Wilson viral video that showed how ignorant and disrespectful Christie is when confronted with the idea of giving cannabis to children suffering from epilepsy). Or as the man who bantered on and on about "gateway drugs" when asked about the plant on a radio show. Or possibly, you just know him as the governor of New Jersey. This man is trying to take on the anti-marijuana movement singlehandedly against the grain of the thousands of supporters that the plant gains every single day. So if people support weed so much and Christie is just rude politician, what's the issue?
The issue is that Christie may end up running for president of the US. And that's pretty bad for the people in America who are pro-pot. The state of New Jersey currently allows medical marijuana to be sold and bought by patients with a doctor's recommendation. Christie, however, only allowed one dispensary to open in the state and that one shop doesn't sell the concentrates that some patients (like Vivian Wilson, the little girl suffering from epilepsy in that viral video) need in order to feel better. Even after confronted during a press conference by the girl's father, Christie barely let an edible rule pass, saying that the single medical shop could sell edibles. Unfortunately, a low demand for high CBD edibles causes the shop to not carry the medicine. So basically, not much help to the child in need.
Christie doesn't seem to have accepted the facts. Every single poll released recently has shown increasing support in favor of telling the Feds to butt out of state cannabis business. Colorado and Washington are raking in the big bucks due to the legal marijuana sales and even though states don't want to seem eager, you know all the politicians are hungering for the $15+ million a week in revenue from bud sales. Christie doesn't see the money as a good thing. In the radio interview, a listener explained the incredible financial benefits of legalization and Christie couldn't even let the listener finish. Cutting her off with "Let me stop you right there. You know when it may come down the road? When I'm gone. Because it won't happen while I'm here." He then proceeds to quote a study that basically says marijuana consumers aren't as smart as those that don't use marijuana... Going all the way back to "stoners are stupid". His ending argument, of course, was to say that marijuana is a gateway drug and it should not be allowed.
He may sound silly and very, very wrong. But if this man happens to worm his way in to the Oval Office, the cannabis movement is in trouble. Even the progress of Colorado and Washington could be halted by such an abrasive, uninformed person. Stoners need to know about opponents like this so we know what we're up against... Although with Christie, I'm unsure as to how valid and solid his arguments actually are. Considering the gateway drug theory has been disproven time and time again, we will hopefully be safe from cannabis predators like this.
Make THC Active During The Marijuana Drying Process
Marijuana Vending Machine Ships Out
While some people claim that the fingerprint taking, camera wielding vending machines in California are pretty awesome, others see it differently. These machines just add another layer of security to buying your meds, which really doesn't seem necessary. The point of these machines is supposed to be discreetness and you're not being discreet if you're required to put in a membership card, a fingerprint scan, and your face is being zoomed in on and macroed by a camera. Thankfully, new machines have been in production for a while and are finally being sent out all over the country to dispensaries everywhere.
The ZaZZZ was released in Colorado earlier this year. These machines are far more easier to deal with and really do what they're supposed to; put the patient at ease. With some people being extremely secretive about their choice of medicine, the machines will eliminate the need for the patient to interact with staff. It will also allow marijuana shops to increase their revenue, meaning that the more experienced customers that know what they want can just grab it from the machine while the staff of the store helps new patients or ones that aren't getting the correct medicine.
Once the machines are set up, they will operate quite simply. The customer/patient inserts their proper identification in to the machine. The card is scanned and the computer uses real time verification to make sure that the person who is using the ID actually is that person. When the positive ID is made and that the person is who they say they are, the machine will allow them to purchase their products with cash, Bitcoin, and hopefully soon, credit and debit cards. If the ID is not accepted, the customer will be directed to speak with a staff member to ensure that the issue is resolved. In addition, the machines are climate controlled in order to give the customer the best product possible.
Dispensaries in Denver are going to be the first places that get these machines, with other shops getting them soon after. The machines are being looked at as a real asset to the marijuana community. Making more sales and creating a safer environment for patients, these machines are sure to be a hit not only in Denver but all over the nation as they start to appear in the shops. Hopefully, this awesome idea gets even better in the coming years, establishing an awesome way for everyone to make a little extra money!
