One Response to State Board of Health Issues Medical Marijuana Ruling

  1. Al Davis says:

    Glad to see the people’s will instead of the police state’s will enforced!!! Too bad for the people that wish to force their will upon other’s.

With 20% of the federal prison population in for cultivation and distribution of pot, the police state is now realizing that the tax payers can’t afford their excesses.

    Good for the people of Colorado, too bad for the police with their sick way of manipulating the bureacracy!!
