Gov. Hickenlooper to sign medical pot crackdown

416

DENVER | Colorado’s governor is signing into law a new crackdown on medical marijuana.

Gov. John Hickenlooper was scheduled Monday, May 18, to sign a bill that directs state health authorities to set new guidelines for doctors who recommend pot for “severe pain.” That’s the most common condition on Colorado’s medical marijuana registry.

The new law will also direct marijuana caregivers to inform patients that the pot they’re using may not be tested for potency or contaminants.

The measure updates marijuana regulations that were written before Colorado made weed legal for adults in 2012.

It’s about time the scam of medical marijuana came into play. ‘Their’ doctors write scripts for anything, anything. I have a ‘pain in my ass’, okay, you qualify.

It’s no surprise that Dr’s write prescriptions.

The ‘medical marijuana doctors’, of course we all know doctors write prescriptions, so they hired a few to do their bidding.

Time Magazine, May 25, 2015 has 5 page article of testing – research in USA and UK on Pot. Appears to be very useful for certain diseases among the elderly or senior years, but experiment with rats indicate problems in the baby rats in following generation and the one after that. Appears they like more and stronger drugs than those who not getting pot. And question of how that relates to humans, and children. That research appeared to be in England. I would suggest all families get copy of Time, though I consider it a leftist magazine. One of my past magazine subscriptions went completely digital, and transferred my remaining time to TIME magazine. Article titled ‘The highly divisive, curiously underfunded and strangely promising WORLD OF POT SCIENCE. on the face of the Magazine. Shows a Rat smoking pot cigarette.
