Large stores sold approximately 50 pounds of recreational cannabis each in 5 days’ time the first week of legality, with small stores selling 20 to 30 pounds each. Over $5 Million in retail sales the first week. State taxes at 25%, wholesale tax (unseen by consumer) at 15%, and 8% city sales tax equals 48% tax rate on the recreational weed. In numbers, a couple million in tax dollars raised, by people more than happy to pay it, all in one week’s time. The lines are still long at places and a month’s worth of cannabis infused chocolate edibles sold out in 2 days’ time at one of the shops. Incredible. Just incredible!

It’s Green Fever all over the state, as a Colorado state highway mile marker sign for Mile 420 has been stolen so many times the state’s transportation department replaced it with a new sign “Mile 419.99″. I couldn’t make this stuff up, it’s epic times in the joy of Colorado’s legality. Dominoes are falling all over the country – go New Hampshire, Alaska, Washington, Arizona, and New York as you prepare to pass, or implement Cannabis laws! Keep it legal for people to grow at least 6 plants, and the power to heal yourself will remain with the people. Grow ’em big :-)

Jay Leno on the Tonight Show, a great comedian in his final days as host of the famed show, is having a field day with marijuana jokes almost nightly as he heads towards the finish line. He seems to really be enjoying it, calling us “The Generation that Legalized Marijuana.” It’s awesome to see so much happening so quickly.

Food stamps cards can be used at pot shops in Colorado – but I wouldn’t do it people – that might be considered tickling the tail of the beast, and pissing off the feds. Also I wouldn’t recommend, as a caregiver, having more than 30 total plants or 5 patients, as the state is passing a law making both illegal. This law is Superconstitutional; meaning it is on top of a law that is in the Colorado state constitution saying something totally different. So if you can convince a jury of 12 of your peers you didn’t have too many plants or patients, you are okay, but make sure you can without a doubt survive examination of your plants and patients as there will be laws in place soon. It’s sad to see the 5 patient limit and 30 plant count come back from the dead. Just like the THC DUI, it’s another example of legislators doing what they want, regardless of a constitutional vote by the people.

A heads up to all would-be shippers out of state of cannabis goods: several reports of packages not arriving to locations have many thinking the government and corporations have installed larger package scanning machines at all Colorado (and potentially Washington) mailing facilities, and are putting extra scrutiny on packages leaving the legal compassionate states. The Vitamin Cannabis team has long banned out of state shipping amongst our ranks, and I myself would be rich if I accepted the once a week offers to buy my pills and ship them to people out of state or overseas. Do it at your own risk, people, but I do not participate in shipping at all.

In the 1600’s, the Dutch had an event occur called “Tulip Mania” where tulip bulbs were overinflated in price and became worth thousands of dollars, even though the intrinsic value (the actual value of the bulb) was next to nothing. I learned about Tulip Mania in talking with the lead grower at the dispensary I work for, who talked about how the value of certain cannabis clones, like a heavy CBD, or high yielding THC with short flower time, can be inflated to thousands of dollars, when the actual value of the cannabis clone is always less than $1 in physical materials. I asked the grower to compare what is happening in Colorado right now to something else, and Tulip Mania is what he related it to. It’s Cannabis Mania, and Tax Mania, right now in Denver, but it’s all a beautiful sight to see.

In other non-cannabis news, there might be trees on mars, look for yourself and be the judge, but I think the 300 ft. coral-like trees on Martian seabed are definitely proof of alien life existing even if it is Martian Flowers. See the pics and judge for yourself. Also, dolphins have been caught – using a robotic fish camera – taking a puffer fish, making it puff its poison, then getting “high” off the puffer poison, and handing the fish to each other like a joint. It’s pretty amazing to see other creatures using “recreational drugs.” And the poor puffer fish… http://www.worldstarhiphop.com/videos/video.php?v=wshhlXllGGBS6symC3z3

$7 million in Cannabinoid research grants from the state of Colorado has been put into the budget – it’s a first – as a governmental organization will be conducting research into the validity of cannabis as medicine claims. I wonder if our team will receive any of the funds, to look into whether or not cannabis does indeed cure cancer :-). We all know it does, but it would be nice to see it official, and released to all.

Congratulations to New York, who authorized via emergency edict through the governor’s office the distribution of cannabis medicines at 20 NY hospitals. And power to the “Live Free or Die” state, as New Hampshire prepares to legalize via the state house. The dominoes are falling everywhere and prohibitions’ clock is in its final ticks… :-)

Nancy Grace of CNN called pot smokers “Lazy, Fat, and a Threat to Society” in her monologue about how pot legalization is a slippery slope. She debates Mason Tvert, a SAFER marijuana activist who handles her quite well. Nancy even turns off his mike at one point he is winning the argument so badly. Then on Saturday Night Live, they mock Nancy and fake interview a Boulder cannabis bakery manager and Katt Williams. Both will make you laugh out loud and you can check them out together here: http://blog.sfgate.com/smellthetruth/2014/01/21/cnns-insane-clown-nancy-grace-converts-millions-to-marijuana-legalization/

On a positive note: the over 70 year old doctor in Northern Colorado charged with a felony after signing a medical marijuana card for an undercover cop who said he was in severe pain, will not go to jail, though he still has a criminal record as a result of the case. It’s sad to see in some areas the fear of pot being the devil’s weed still exists. The prosecutor tried to have the doc banned from talking about the case, but that was thrown out by the judge. A strong court turnout helped the doctor who hopefully will be able to return to a normal life with his family, and tell his story to prevent it from happening elsewhere.

Another positive, the first Commercial Hemp Seed production vendor license was issued in Colorado; soon we will all be able to buy commercial hemp seed. Remember it’s only $200 initial fee and $1 per acre to grow industrial hemp in Colorado. Please come grow your victory gardens here… :-)!

One final note: Mr. Snowden – the leaker of the NSA documents about how the US has been spying on everyone – told Russian authorities, who told a newspaper in Iran, that the United States Government has been run by Nazi Space Aliens since 1954. Although the source is questionable, and the story ridiculous, in a way – to me – it makes a hell of a lot more sense that evil Nazi aliens run the country than that ordinary human beings would be so terrible to each other so often, like keeping the cancer cure illegal and letting people die. I’m not saying I believe the Nazi Space Alien stuff, I’m just saying it is much easier to believe that then that humans are capable of such evil. Food for thought, folks.

I hope this message finds you all well and happy. Positive thoughts and energy your way. I truly love you all and will continue my lightworker lightwork as long as we’re gleaming. Please wish me and my family light and good tidings as well. Viva la evolucion, viva la oil!

P.S. An Update on “Team Landon”: Landon Riddle’s mom, Sierra Riddle, is fighting for her son’s right to use cannabis rather than toxic chemotherapy (he doesn’t even have cancer right now, but they are requiring him to continue treatment for the next few years anyway!). They are trying to raise money for an attorney as well as car repairs to travel form Colorado Springs to Denver regularly for appointments with his doctor. You can help them out by visiting their website and making a donation: http://hashtagteamlandon.wix.com/support.  And/or you can nominate her as an Unstoppable Mom here: http://livekellyandmichael.dadt.com/contests/unstoppablemoms/. Both would help out greatly and would be very much appreciated.

P.S.S. Oh man the news just keeps coming… the pro football league in America just announced it would consider marijuana for treatment of brain injuries, the University of Colorado announced their 33% increase in admissions applications “has nothing to do with recreational marijuana legality” – h huh, sure it doesn’t – and Obama talks about how marijuana isn’t all that bad. The times they are a changin’ and I like what I see. Come to Colorado to go “Hiking” Folks! :-)
