ACLU Joins Drive To Legalize Marijuana In Colorado

​The American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado has joined the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, a coalition supporting a 2012 ballot initiative to end cannabis prohibition in Colorado.The initiative would make marijuana legal for adults, take it out of the black market, and establish a system in which it is regulated, taxed and sold similar to alcohol.”In Colorado we believe our laws should be practical and they should be fair,” the group said in a statement. “Yet we are wasting scarce public resources in our criminal justice system by having police, prosecutors and the courts treat marijuana users like violent criminals.

Colorado Medical Marijuana Vaporizers

One of the main reasons that vaporizers were developed was to reduce the harmful effects on your lungs and throat caused from smoking. We know that medical marijuana is an effective medicine to relieve pain and/or inflammation. We also know that smoking of any kind of material can cause respiratory problems. The vaporizer produces a vapor which is far less harmful than smoke. The following study by the authority CANORML shows the advantages of vaporizing over traditional smoking methods.

Medical studies show heavy marijuana smokers have suffered severe bronchitis and respiratory infections. Vaporizing marijuana is an excellent way of reducing the irritating respiratory toxins in marijuana smoke. The vaporizer reduces the amount of tar you inhale. Their is quite a bit of tar in marijuana, tobacco and other herbs especially in Marijuana.

Also herbs are smoked on a recreational basis by millions of people throughout the world. If you currently use Colorado Medical Marijuana you can take advantage of the benefits of a vaporizer.

The effect of vaporizing herbs is generally quite different to smoking. Some prefer the feeling of vaporizing and others prefer the feeling of smoking. Even if you prefer the feelings of smoking, it is very handy having a vaporizer. It can be used from time to time to reduce the harmful affects of smoking. For example if you have a sore throat and would like to consume your herbs. The vaporizer can be used and it should not irritate your throat. Or you may feel that your lungs are congested and need some improving, but you would like some herbs. Then vaporize your herbs and you should see improvements in your health. This is especially the case if you have a cold or the flu. The marijuana/herbs may help to reduce the severity of the symptoms caused by the cold. It may be just to painful to smoke when you throat is sore and lungs are conjested.

If you smoke marijuana and find that you are becoming tired and unmotivated and you do not want to quit using marijuana. Try vaporizing your marijuana and you will get more a of a clean headed high buzz.

Like tobacco, marijuana smoke contains toxins that are known to be hazardous to the respiratory system. Among them are the highly carcinogenic polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons, a prime suspect in cigarette-related cancers. These toxins are essentially a byproduct of combustion, separate from the pharmaceutically active components of marijuana, known as cannabinoids, which include THC. When you burn marijuana it produces quite a lot of tar. Pipes and joints generally do not have proper filters. Bongs are not the answer, because you inhale concentrated smoke.

The vaporizer certainly reduces the level of tar. You will not have to worry about the harmful carcinogens your body is absorbing when you inhale marijuana smoke.

How to use a Marijuana Vaporizer

You take your marijuana buds and cut them up or grind them slightly. This helps increase the surface area. You then place the cannabis in to the cup style bowl and adjust the temperature. Each vaporizer is different so read the directions on how to control the temperature. The vaporization temperature will alter the affect of the herb.

How Does A Marijuana Vaporizer Work

As the heat is applied to your herbs the THC resins inside medical cannabis buds gets hot enough to vaporize. When this happens the good chemicals held within the small resins on the plants actually vaporize out into a thin mist (vapor). The vapor starts to thicken as it gathers inside a clear glass dome. The vapor is now ready to be inhaled through a long tube. Once the marijuana has been fully vaporized, you are left with the remains of the marijuana plant. The remaining chaff is the waste product. This is what you would have inhaled had you smoked the marijuana rather than vaporize it.

What Are The Benefits Of A Marijuana Vaporizer

The greatest benefit is that you do not inhale any of the harmful smoke produced by a marijuana cigarette (joint). However, through the vaporization process you still receive all the active chemical ingredients from the marijuana buds you place in the bowl. When you burn herbs harmful chemicals are created. Vaporizing your herbs reduces the number of harmful chemicals.

MJ Freeway Unveils New Features that Embed Reporting Requirements for the State of Colorado, Keeping Dispensaries Compliant – An Industry First

MJ Freeway Unveils New Features that Embed Reporting Requirements for the State of Colorado, Keeping Dispensaries Compliant – An Industry First











Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) August 22, 2011

MJ Freeway Unveils New Features that Embed Reporting Requirements for the State of Colorado, Keeping Dispensaries Compliant. An industry first!

New Updated Software will Automatically Fill Out State Required Forms with Compliance Data, Saving Time and Energy for Colorado Medical Marijuana Center Owners

MJ Freeway, a Colorado-based software development company, whose products are used by hundreds of dispensary and collective owners around the world, is proud to announce a new feature that captures all State of Colorado medical marijuana tracking requirements and allows local Medical Marijuana Center owners to quickly and accurately submit state mandated forms.

This compliance feature, developed by MJ Freeway, is designed to automatically fill out the required data pulled from MJ Freeway’s Grow, Patient, Sales and Inventory Management software so any dispensary owner can ensure that their business stays completely compliant with the ever-changing state mandated regulations.

“MJ Freeway is committed to legitimizing medical marijuana through software solutions,” stated MJ Freeway co-founder Mark Goldfogel.

“A well designed computer system can help legitimize an entire industry,” Goldfogel said. “Marijuana is a completely unique product because it evaporates, and yet is sold by weight. Many states require seed-to-sale tracking where all plants and batches must be documented from the time the seeds are planted, until the marijuana is sold to a patient in a local dispensary.”

MJ Freeway’s software is not only designed to keep dispensaries compliant with any and all state requirements, but also help businesses run more smoothly and efficiently through easy to follow Inventory Control, Financial Tracking, Plant Management and Patient Rewards integrated software modules.

Most importantly, according to Goldfogel, is the software’s ability to help provide best business practices so dispensaries can become more familiar with their products and their patients and can provide a more enjoyable, personable and professional experience.

MJ Freeway meets all the requirements for Medical Marijuana tracking in any state and is the only company that has pledged to modify their product for life to meet each state’s latest compliance requirements, allowing business owners more time to focus on their patients.

Established in Colorado, MJ Freeway has been featured on MSNBC, PC World, and IT World and is the industry standard for medical marijuana software providing business solutions for medical marijuana vendors around the world.

Colorado Blocks Bill That Would Give Stoned Drivers a DUI’s


One of the major concern surrounding pot legalization and decriminalization has been the issue of impaired drivers. Colorado’s Senate had to decide last night if they wanted to pass a bill that would make it illegal to drive with more than 5 nanograms of THC per liter of blood in your system. They rejected the bill, for now.

The issue here was that they didn’t have enough research. This law is starting a fire in a hot area of dispute inside and outside the marijuana community. Stoners have long had their own ideas about driving while high. Some will tell you they never do it because it feels too dangerous, and others say that they drive better stoned. Drive better stoned? That’s a sentiment that many are likely to dispute.
It brings up an important issue though. Is all intoxication impairment, and do drivers under the influence of marijuana cause accidents. The fact is that we don’t really know, and that’s why the bill failed. The senate decided they need more research before they move forward with a law like this.
This is by no means a simple law to enact. Marijuana unlike alcohol affects users in far more unpredictable ways. Depending on exposure two people might have completely different reactions to the same dose.
“… [Sen. Shawn] Mitchell said… Echoing the concerns of a number of lawmakers, Sen. Morgan Carroll, D-Aurora, said she thinks the research is inconclusive about how much THC definitively causes impairment, meaning a 5-nanogram limit might snare sober drivers while allowing stoned ones to go free.” – DenverPost.com
The world will be looking to Colorado to set the precedent for laws of this type.
