There are so many reasons why marijuana should be legal in a society where alcohol is. If alcohol wasn’t legal then I wouldn’t feel nearly as strong about that matter as I do. I simply think that alcohol is far more damaging than marijuana could ever be. I admit, I may be slightly biased because a large part of my opinion about alcohol has been informed by several people I know personally, who have problems with it.
Those 3 people have caused me more pain in my life than anyone else I know, I also have many friends who smoke medicinal marijuana and none of them have the kind of problems that the people who drink do. I understand that there are often other contributing factors to alcoholism and that it’s human nature for people to seek out things that they believe will help them cope. It’s just my personal belief that when people turn to alcohol, their lives take a far more destructive turn than someone who decided to smoke weed instead. I thought it was odd that we lived in a society where anyone could purchase alcohol if they’re more than 21 but under no circumstances were you able to purchase marijuana legally unless it’s from a dispensary. So, if you have a medical cannabis license and a legitimate health concern then you can buy marijuana. However, all you need is a driver’s license that says you’re 21 years of age in order to purchase alcohol, even though alcohol serves no medical purpose of any kind whatsoever, in fact it more often causes medical concerns.
Things had changed a lot in the last couple years but he didn’t have any reason to complain because things had gotten better for him. The legalization movement in Colorado had begun 5 years prior with medicinal use, now it was legal to possess up to an ounce without committing a crime, so the landscape had transformed a little bit. Many dispensary and grow operations have sprouted up all over the State and have helped struggling economies gain more from tax revenues from their sales. Before, it was sold on the black market and the economy wasn’t benefiting at all from it and it wasn’t being taxed. Now, it is taxed and a marijuana dispensary owner can be just as legitimate as a coffee store owner.
There are other businesses that exist now as well because of the growth of the marijuana industry, businesses like cannabis testing labs. When a grower or a dispensary wants to know the THC content of their product,
they take it to a THC testing lab to have it analyzed. The higher the THC levels, the higher of a price they can charge for it and the competition is stiff. Many people flocked to Colorado from other parts of the country for many different reasons pertaining to the marijuana industry. Some people have legitimate medical or pain issues that marijuana can help medicate, others have a more profitable idea in mind and want to grow here themselves. People feel more comfortable operating in a State with less stringent politics on marijuana.
The times were changing, kids grew up faster these days. I guess as we evolve as human beings, we invent new problems for ourselves along the way and learn to cope with them in different ways. People have been drinking some form of alcohol for ages, it’s still around today but so are so many other drugs and substances. My dad always told me, if it grows from the ground then it’s probably sound. I took that advice to heart when it came to my recreational activities. I only smoked marijuana, and I only smoked the kind that THC testing showed was of the highest quality. Sometimes I also like to eat an edible or two, the dispensary I patronize has a CBD test lab handle their quality control for their edibles so I always know exactly how much I can eat and still remain somewhat functional. It’s easy to eat too much THC otherwise, I’ve had friends make brownies numerous times and their effects are always unpredictable when you don’t know how much THC is in them. Too much and you’ll feel like sleeping the day away, not to mention getting a serious case of the munchies in the meantime.
Most my friends and I prefer marijuana over alcohol or other drugs, we’re called potheads and stoners but we don’t care. I’ve seen way too many people die or develop serious problems related to alcohol and other drugs. I, of course don’t ever want to feel like i’m dependent on anything or “self-medicating” as they say, but marijuana doesn’t disrupt my life and seems to relax me so I don’t consider it a bad thing.
These were certainly some interesting times, I looked around and saw nothing but change going on around me. I grew up in a Denver area suburb and eventually moved into the city when I was older. I lived off of Santa Fe Drive, on the back-end of the historic Baker neighborhood and at the lower end of the expanding Art District. The light rail and interstate were both less than a half mile away so the area was also considered very industrial. Directly across the street from me was a sand, dirt and gravel distribution plant, I lived in a warehouse that I out-fitted for dual work/live purposes.
I worked from home and began to notice a familiar smell emanating from the adjacent unit. I thought I smelled it vaguely several months earlier but this time it was unmistakable. Colorado had legalized medicinal marijuana and I lived in a warehouse unit so this didn’t surprise me. In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me if more units in this old building were growing as well because we were in an area that was actually zoned for marijuana cultivation. I knew that the neighbor owned a dispensary but I didn’t know he grew at home, maybe he didn’t even live there. I decided to look out for him and try to catch him when he was on his way in or out, it smelled like flower time and I wanted to see if he needed any help trimming. I was hurting for cash and I felt good enough about our relationship that I felt comfortable asking if he needed help.
While marijuana is almost legal in the state of Colorado, the colorado based cannabis coupon companies are already out in force with their coupon deals, trying to get people to stock up on them in preparation for that legal change in the law. These coupons are great for the marijuana, but also they are being issued for the wax and hash as well, which are the different ways of using the weed and affect the user in different ways. Many people are beginning to realize that the effects of actually smoking the weed can be damaging for their lungs, and so they are moving more and more to the use of wax or hash instead, using the product in smaller vaporizers or putting it into their cooking. This way, there is no smoke that must be inhaled, and the user feels less like they have damaged their lungs and more like they are still just enjoying the effects of the weed they are using.
The websites that are helping to make these cannabis coupons proliferate have become much more adept at diversifying their offerings, in the hopes that this will bring in much more business and many different types of customers than would just only purchase the weed for smoking in a pipe or a joint. You can also find cannabis coupons out there for that type of weed, and also for all the things that are necessary for the smoking of it, from the pipes to the papers that are required for rolling joints. They are opening the window for others who may want to try cannabis but are not interested in smoking it. They are now able to find cannabis coupons for the hash and the wax, as well as the implements that are used to smoke those things in, from the vaporizing pen that can be purchased with these coupons, and the other types of cooking implements.
In the past, the cannabis coupons were only put out there for the actual marijuana that had to be smoked. These have been successful for the medical marijuana industry and those customers, but for the new influx of regular customers who are not smoking marijuana for the medical reasons. These are a different group of people, and they are interested in many different ways that are available for purchase. So the cannabis coupons have been quick to offer a variety of deals on all of the different types of products available instead of just focusing their efforts on one. They are also delivering the cannabis coupons in several new ways, in an effort to reach out to all those people who may be interested in trying the newly legal product but are not out there trying to find the best deal. These deals are only going to be getting better as we get closer and closer to the go live date for the new law. There is just really no better way out there that we know of to get deals into the hands of the consumers.
When Colorado officially legalized marijuana for recreational purposes, it established Denver as the cannabis capital of the world. The variety, potency, and prices put even California and Amsterdam to shame. It truly is a paradise for any connoisseur of cannabis. The main reason this is the case is the fact that so many people have migrated to the state strictly for the purposes of profiting off the newly legal and taxable industry. WIth so many people competing for the same clientele, prices have dropped very low. If you search around a bit, you can find some pretty unheard of deals at some of the dispensaries.
If you take the time to print off some weed coupons, you can get some pretty insane deals. Since there are so many dispensaries offering excellent marijuana, they have to offer incredible deals just to compete with each other. If you have the time, it truly is worth it to shop around before you buy anything. If you go on the right day or bring a coupon, you can get some amazing bargains. I know that at least one dispensary offers people one hundred dollars ounces of high-quality marijuana to first-time patients. Even if you are not eligible for that particular deal, you can still probably find ounces for around one hundred and fifty dollars.
Compared to what unfortunate souls pay in other states, even on the West coast, that is quite a steal. If an ounce is more than you need, you an always purchase your marijuana by the eighth, as well. The bargains are no less spectacular for smaller amounts. You can get an eighth of quality, fully-cured cannabis for twenty-five dollars in some cases. Even if you have to pay full price it will only cost you thirty-five at the most. The cannabis deals do not stop there, though. You can get cannabis in just about any form you can imagine for pretty reasonable prices. You can even buy individual pre-rolled joints for less than the price of cigarettes. There’s never been a better time or place to quite smoking…cigarettes. I even saw one dispensary offering joints for a penny. Another offered dollar joints every week on a certain day. If ordinary marijuana just does not quite alleviate your symptoms, there are some extremely potent yet affordable concentrates available.
If you like kief, you can get it for a pittance. Some people want something even more potent, though. For those brave souls, there is always the super potent concentrates that can be either smoked or vaporized. Even these ultra-potent products sell for anywhere from fifteen to twenty-five dollars a gram. There are even deals for those who prefer to grow their own cannabis. As growing cannabis is now legal in Colorado, as long as you are not selling your crop, many connoisseurs have begun to try their hands at this. You can get everything you need from your local dispensary. In fact, there are even some marijuana deals on fertilizers and equipment for growing excellent cannabis.
