Marijuana Regulatory Bill Wends
Through Colorado Legislature
By Noelle Leavitt

A new Senate Bill hit the legislative floor in Colorado on Jan. 20,
proposing new policies and restrictions regarding the way
physicians prescribe medical marijuana to patients.
Senate Bill 109 states that — if approved by the legislature — new
rules and standards will be set forth on how doctors issue registry
identification cards to medical ganja patients, and it will also
create more strict sanctions against physicians who violate the
bill. Additionally, the bill would create a medical marijuana review
board, required to review medical marijuana requests from
patients under the age of 21, to determine if the patient has
a medical condition that would prompt them to use cannabis.

This bill is current as we go to press. It will be amended several times before it

is potentially approved by Colorado’s General Assembly.
“I think there are some positives and negatives to the bill. Generally we
applaud the legislature for trying to regulate the industry. Our main concern is the
welfare of patients,” said Brian Vicente, executive director of Sensible Colorado,
a non-profit organization that lobbies on behalf of medical marijuana patients.
“Our primary concern is making sure patients have access to medical marijuana.
At the same time, there is a broad local and national discussion about the need to
re-examine our marijuana laws for patients and non-patients.”
Vicente feels that the current law does make it pretty easy for those seeking
recreational use of cannabis to access the drug, therefore he thinks tighter
regulations aren’t necessarily a bad idea. Yet, he also thinks the bill needs some
major amendments before he completely supports the legislation.
“We are absolutely opposed to that board. My understanding is that it will likely
come out of the bill in committee. That board would add an additional hurdle to
patients in need of medical marijuana,” he said.
For example, if a 20-year-old AIDS patient needs access to medical pot, the
review board would further complicate the patient’s quest to obtain the medicine.
“I think it fundamentally weakens the doctor-patient relationship,” Vicente said.
Essentially, the bill is trying to create ways to limit the recreational use of
marijuana. Many feel that marijuana should be legal across the board. Colorado
Attorney Rob Corry told Kush-Colorado that pot should be accessible to everyone,
otherwise it creates a gray area that will always be questioned by the government
— an issue that might also be addressed throughout this year’s legislative session
and the amendment process.
Advocacy groups still have ample opportunity to lobby for their initiatives. For
now, Senate Bill 109 is the only bill concerning medical marijuana that’s hit the
desk of Colorado legislatures.
The bill has several House and Senate sponsors including Sen. Chris Romer,
D-Denver, who has long advocated stricter sanctions regarding medical marijuana.

Strain Review:

Blue Dream
Life’s A Dream, Smoke It Up
It’s the perfect A high from the Blue Dream strain makes you feel like you’re up in the
clouds. Above all the BS in life. You’re getting work done and making stuff
happen. Putting life in motion. Living the dream, with nothing but clear
setting: sunny day, blue skies ahead.

Alternatively, with an indica you’re likely to dream while
sleeping, although you probably won’t remember those
dreams upon awakening.

On the darker side of the Blue Dream, and sativa for that
matter, many people become overwhelmed with paranoia,
anxiety, and an increased heart rate. This can be a bit
frightening, but shouldn’t last more than 10-15 minutes.
An indica’s negatives would likely point towards laziness,
forgetfulness, and a lack of motivation. Depending on
what you’re needing, these negatives can quickly become
refreshing positives.

Marijuana is a person-to-person, situation-to-situation,

strain-to-strain experience. Your high will often depend on
the mental state, physical condition, and environment you
bring to the table. And of course, one’s genetic makeup and
health are undeniable factors. But when everything is right
and you know it, it’s alllll good... and you know it.

Overall a very pleasant experience is in store for the Blue

Dream toker. It is a fairly cheap sativa, averaging around $45
for an eighth at most established dispensaries.

“Tips for pruning Tips”

Wait for the new node to start growing before clipping the

young branch a few millimeters above the previous node’s
newly formed leaves. It’s also advisable to use small scissors as
opposed to simply plucking off the growing tips by hand.

4.) Know what you’re pruning

Never prune more than the single growing tip, or upper-
most node, from any branch on the growing plant. The upper-
most growing tip of an un-pruned marijuana plant will always
be more potent than that of the top of a pruned plant grown
in similar conditions. But let’s not get caught trippin’ on
just the top. Let’s think about the whole plant. Pruning the
tallest branches ensures that the lower branches grow upward,
forming a larger surface area for the light to cover. The clear
fluid that often flows from the end of a newly pruned branch
contains substances which seal the wound and aid the healing
process. Although it is recommended that you remove all
dying leaves from the plant, you should resist the temptation to
prune too many healthy leaves. Keep in mind that even though
it may be better developed, a pruned marijuana plant does not
always produce more buds than an un-pruned plant. Another
good reason for pruning is to take healthy cuttings from a
strong growing, or favorite plant, for further hydroponic
development (cloning).

5.) Use “if needed” as your pruning rule of thumb

Marijuana growers often prune their plants in an attempt to
limit their height and prevent unwanted detection. If you have
that type of operation, all of this is probably old hat for you. If
you are the average “home grower,” remember that by pruning
a growing tip, you are removing the most potent part of the
plant, thereby spoiling its chance of reaching full maturity. By
pruning all the buds at harvest time, rather than cutting the
stem off above the ground, you could easily harvest your plant
a second time. One great advantage to pruning your marijuana
plant is that you’re lowering their resistance to harmful natural
enemies such as insects, fungus and temperature fluctuations.

Do not prune any growing tips if you notice that your

plant’s health is declining or has started losing leaves. Although
smoking your pruned tips is ok, plants should be pruned to
develop their growth, rather than for smoking purposes.
While it may be tempting to prune female buds during early
flowering, your harvest will be severely reduced by doing
so. Cannabis indica is genetically smaller and bushier than
cannabis sativa, and usually requires less pruning.

So remember, be patient and concise when pruning. You

know when you need a haircut don’t you? Well the same
patience and concern should be taken with your little babies.

Good luck, and

happy growing!!

New Denver Medical
Marijuana Ordinance:
City Council sets parameters on dispensaries
by Noelle Leavitt

Break out the tape measure if you plan on opening a medical marijuana dispensary
in Denver, as you’ll want to calculate at least 1,000 feet between you and the nearest
school, daycare center or competing medical pot shop.

In January, Denver’s City Council changed the licensing procedures for medical
marijuana dispensary owners, restricting them from opening cannabis shops
within 1,000 feet of schools, childcare establishments and other dispensaries. And
if you currently operate a dispensary that violates the new specs, you must relocate.

The new law goes into effect on March 1, 2010, along with a slew of other
requirements outlined in the council bill, including tighter regulations surrounding
criminal background checks for dispensary owners. That means if you’ve spent
time in jail in the last five years for convicting a felony, you’re application to open
a dispensary within the city and county of Denver will be denied.

“We don’t want drug dealers to run dispensaries within the city or county,” Denver
city councilman Charlie Brown told Kush-Colorado. “If they think they can come
in here and have no regulation, they’re crazy.”

Another stipulation states that medical marijuana cannot be smoked, eaten or

ingested inside or around the premises of dispensaries.

“I think that’s another important piece. You don’t go into a liquor store and have
four drinks when you buy alcohol,” said Candace Gill, manager of Alameda
Wellness Center, a dispensary located in Denver. “I think proper licensing is
important. I don’t have a problem with someone needing a criminal background
check. It’s a sticky market -- it’s viewed as drugs. I have patients that are old vets,
and we’re not dealing with your basic pothead. So I’m excited to see that there’s
going to be some basic guidelines.”

It costs $2,000 to apply for a medical marijuana dispensary license, plus additional
costs for a background check for each partner with at least a 10 percent stake in

22 kush
Additional requirements related to a medical
marijuana dispensary license include:
• Dispensaries must be closed to the public from 9
p.m. to 7 a.m.
• Licensed establishments are required to have
24-hour surveillance on the premises with either
security cameras, security guards or safes for
overnight storage of marijuana.
• Only dispensary owners listed on the license
and managers listed on the application can
manage the property.
• Displaying marijuana sales products in
windows is forbidden, and must not be visible
from the exterior.
• Persons under the age of 18 are not allowed on
the premises.

the business. But, wait, there’s more — a medical marijuana

dispensary license tallies $3,000 a year. Denver’s Department
of License and Excess approves or denies medical marijuana
dispensary licenses.

The new bill is in compliance with Amendment 20 — a state law

approved by Colorado voters in 2000, allowing them to legally
sell medical marijuana. Yet, a federal law restricting the medical
marijuana industry pre-empted the state law until last October
when the federal government lifted the sanction, opening the
flood gates in Colorado for new dispensary business.

The original bill, proposed by Brown, stated that dispensaries

were restricted to open within 500 feet of schools, daycare
centers or other pot shops to eliminate clusters of dispensaries
around the city, but other council members amended the bill to
state 1,000 feet.

“I thought the 1,000 foot was excessive,” Brown said. “It

was a compromise.”

Coachella Music and Arts Festival known in short as

“Coachella Fest,” is the Mecca of Music and Art Festivals.
It’s also the benchmark by which most festivals are com-
pared, worldwide. Started in 1999 (missing one year in 2000,
due to lack of ticket sales), Coachella has come back strong
as the West Coast Festival to attend each Spring. Along
with three main stages and multiple DJ tents, there
are also large art installations set up all over the complex.
For those dance-crazed, rave-minded attendees, there is a
special area devoted just to dance music - all weekend.
The hit list of bands who’ve played in years past is a who’s
who of contemporary rock ’n’ roll. With such headline acts as
Beck, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Oasis, Radiohead, The
Cure, Roger Waters, Prince, Madonna, Rage Against
The Machine, Paul McCartney & Daft Punk, it’s evident
that these promoters are in tune with what the people want.
After months of message boards and blogs post, the long-await-
ed reveal of the highly anticipated lineup has been released.
It seems that the heads at Goldenvoice/AEG Live have once
again put together another kick-ass lineup for 2010.

Cannabis rally
By Noelle Leavitt

Denver, Colo. — The air was filled with clouds of pot smoke
outside the State Capitol January 14, as medical-marijuana
proponents toked on pipes and joints moments before they
marched into the State House to address legislators about the
need to keep the drug legal in Colorado.

Medical marijuana is a hot topic at the state capitol this year,

as legislators prepare to discuss the issue at length in the coming
months. Cannabis users, dispensary owners and local lobbyists
wanted their voices heard by their elected officials, who they
feel have long-ignored the importance of medical, as well as
recreational, use of marijuana.

“This is the day that we restore the voice to the American

people, to the Colorado people and to the Denver people. It’s
been ignored by our city councils, our leadership at the capitol,”
said Miguel Lopez, who organized the rally.

Lopez, who works with the Cannabis Therapy Institute

based in Boulder, put together the event in response to several
bills slated for discussion at the State Capitol this year, all which
address restricting and regulating the use of marijuana.

The bills come on the heels of a new federal policy implemented

by President Barack Obama on Oct. 19, 2009, which states that
law officials will no longer take legal action against medical
marijuana users and dispensary owners if the drug has been
legalized by state governments.

Yet, if Colorado legislators go to the extreme in restricting the

use and distribution of medical marijuana in the state, Obama’s
new policy could no longer apply to Colorado.

“What I’d like to say is thanks to our president of the United

States, who actually freed medical marijuana. It’s a shame that
our local leadership doesn’t see this, because if our president
recognizes and acknowledges it, then so should our leadership all
the way down,” Lopez shouted into a microphone at the rally. “If
our national leaders can now acknowledge medical marijuana,
that’s the first step to decriminalization for responsible adults
and protection for the patients who absolutely have a need for

Rep. Larry Liston, R-Colorado Springs, said he’s willing

to hear what proponents have to say, yet he still has personal
reservations about pot use in Colorado. “I went to college, and
we’ve all been exposed to it,” Liston said.

“But I had my reservations in 2000 when it was on the ballot.

It passed, and now the industry has grown from a tiny cottage
industry into, gosh, dispensaries have sprouted up all over the
place in the last couple of months.”

48 kush
at Colorado State Capitol fuels
fire for legislative support
Liston supports the use of medical marijuana, but opposes
recreational use, fearful that it will increase drug-related crime
across the state. He has yet to see the legislation, so he declined to
comment on what might happen at the capitol in coming months
regarding medical marijuana reform.

“There are going to be some drastic steps that are going to

have to be taken to regulate it,” Liston said, noting that he does
think it can help cancer patients who are prescribed cannabis, but
he does not necessarily support recreational use.

Attorney Rob Corry represents those in favor of using the

green substance, which is now distributed to more than 15,800
registered patients in Colorado, according to figures released by
the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment in
December 2009.

“It’s not completely safe until it’s legal for everybody because
patients are always going to get caught up in this gray netherworld
where it’s always partially legal and partially not,” Corry said in
an interview with Kush, after publicly backing full legalization
at the rally. “You’ll always see the government second-guessing
and questioning physicians’ judgment if it’s truly medical or not.
You’re always going to see growers and caregivers who are guilty
until proven innocent. I mean, that is still the prevailing law
enforcement paradigm.”

The department of health also reported that, as of Dec. 15,

2009, a total of 820 physicians had prescribed cannabis for
medical purposes in Colorado.

Medical marijuana proponents are also fighting a battle

against those in their movement who would seek to legalize it
across the board.

“There’s also the mentality that all use is medical, that

every single use of marijuana is medical and confers physical,
emotional, spiritual and mental benefits on the user — and that’s
why people desire it and that’s why people benefit from it,” Corry
explained to Kush Colorado while standing inside the marble-
floored State Capitol rotunda.

“I do think there’s a recreational component to it. I think it

can make a person more open-minded, it can make a person a
better conversationalist ... there is that recreational part of it, but
no one can dispute that there are medical benefits.”

As the legislative session wears on, senators and representatives

will have much to discuss and debate concerning medical
marijuana, its regulation and its role in Colorado.

U.S Marine Veteran
and Medicinal Marijuana
My name is James Vester. And I am not afraid of telling my name.
I am proud of using medical marijuana. It has change my life.

So lets start with who I am. I am 23 and I live in Berthoud, Colorado.

I’ve been here for the past year now. I just moved from Chicago where I was
in the United States Marine Corps. I served almost 6 years in the Marine
Corps and did a tour overseas in Iraq.

During my time in the Corps I was diagnosed with PTSD (post traumatic
stress disorder) insomnia, personality disorder, blown-out knees, a broken hip,
torn ligaments in my ankle, severe anxiety and severe anger.

I was an alcoholic and was getting locked up a great deal for drinking and
fighting when I got back from overseas. When I left the Marines they left
me with 12 medications: I was taking from Percocet, Oxycontin, Trazadone,
Seroquel, lithium, and much more. In total, about 32 pills a day. I was like a
zombie on all this ... I mean think about my liver. All those pills.

One day my father and I were driving around town and my PTSD was
kicking in and he had some medical marijuana. He said “Son, I think you
should try medical marijuana I think it would really help you.” I forgot what
I was stressing about and why my PTSD was kicking in but I said “Fine!
Give me that glass and let me try it.” So I went ahead and medicated.

About five minutes later I forgot about everything that was on my mind and
was not stressed. I felt happy and great. I think it was a sativa/indica blend.
So I decided to go get my license. I went to see the doctor and gave him my
medical record and he looked at me like “How is this guy standing?” once he
realized how jacked up I am after reviewing my 869 page medical record.

Well, of course I got approved due to my disabilities. Since then my life has
changed. My little sister who is 16 comes to my house to visit every once in
awhile and if we are hanging out and I have not medicated she would be able
to tell. She would say “Jimmy, have you medicated yet?” and I would say “no.”
Then she would reply “You need to now because you are all angry and short
and not looking good.” I would go and medicate and come back and she would
thank me, since it would make me a better person to be around.

Since then I began studying medical marijuana and really wanted to

help people like me. Now I work in a medical marijuana wellness center in
Berthoud called Herbs Medicinals Inc.

views with Kush Colorado.

Q. What is the biggest misconception about

medical marijuana?

A. The biggest misconception surrounding

marijuana is that it is so harmful and that it
must remain illegal. Yet every objective study on
marijuana has concluded that it is far safer than
alcohol, which is available on just about every
corner in virtually every city in the country.
This begs the question: why is it such a problem
for adults to obtain and use marijuana? It’s even
more perplexing when it comes to those with
serious medical conditions whose physicians
have recommended they use marijuana to treat
their conditions or symptoms.

Jason Aldean
3.18.10 @ Odeum Colorado (Broomfield)
With three albums, nine singles, and three number one hits
on the Billboard Country Charts, Jason Aldean’s career is
headed in the right direction. Since he was a child, he’s had
a guitar in his hand, quick to pick up his favorite country
songs. He soon became a star, singing his original songs to
ever growing crowds. You could say that this star is still rising
because he’s that young. And seeing him before he’s really big
would be pretty cool, huh? Well here’s your chance.

Vampire Weekend
3.19.10 @ Ogden Theater (Denver)
Named after lead singer Ezra Koenig’s amateur film, Vampire
Weekend have become the darlings of the New York Indie
Rock scene, starting in 2009. Coming out of the XL Recording
stable and having running mates like The White Stripes puts
VW in good company. They received major accolades from
Rolling Stone in 2007, Spin in 2008, and hit the Top 20 singles
charts in the UK and U.S. in 2009. With their latest album
Contra (2010) just released, and a recent spot on The Tonight
Show with Conan O’Brien, the only thing left is their March
19th show at the Ogden Theater in Denver CO. Come see
what all the NYC hype is about....

3.22.10 @ Pepsi Center (Denver)
Jay-Z, the undeniable Top-Dog, Number One,
King of Hip Hop, and all that is cool in this urban
jungle is breezing into town. When Jay-Z wears it,
raps it or uncorks it, it somehow becomes a hit.
His hit list is so solid that it is only rivaled by the
laundry list of people he’s helped make into stars.
Did I mention his personalized diversions?
Things like a clothing line, fashion accessories,
champagne, cologne, or the NBA team he
owns (NJ Nets). Oh yeah, and he’s married to
the hottest Diva out there - Beyonce. Enough
said. I’m glad this guy’s in charge!

John Mayer
3.23.10 @ Pepsi Center (Denver)
Since coming onto the scene in 1997, John
Mayer seems to have become the torch bearer
for great bluesmen - we can only hope the
trusted sources handing off said torch are
correct. In 2003 he won the Best Male Pop
Vocal Performance Grammy Award. In 2005
he paired up with R&B legends B.B. King,
Eric Clapton, and Buddy Guy - pretty solid
references, to be sure. In 2007 he took home
more Grammys for Best Pop Vocal Album
and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance. John
may have sold his soul at the crossroads to
date Jessica Simpson, but he definitely earned his
bluesman stripes while dating Jennifer Aniston.
