Medical Marijuana Day of Action includes rally at health department

Thumbnail image for marijuana plant outdoor shot cropped.JPG
U.S. Attorney John Walsh's seizure letters to 23 dispensaries near schools -- and his promise that he's not bluffing -- has led to protests from national organizations like Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP). Now, local groups are staging a Medical Marijuana Day of Action, which includes a letter-writing campaign and a noon rally at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.

According to attorney Shawn Hauser, members of the medical marijuana community, including lawyers, business owners and representatives of advocacy outfits ranging from Sensible Colorado to the National Cannabis Industry Association, have "gotten together to make a united stand for the rights of patients and the state." To that end, interested parties are encouraged to get in touch with Walsh, members of Congress from Colorado, Attorney General Eric Holder (Walsh's boss) and others to express their displeasure with the U.S. Attorney's actions. Two examples of sample letters are on view below, and links to contact information for the state's congressional delegation are available at the website of the Medical Marijuana Assistance Program of America, a key Day of Action participant.

"We feel a strong message from Coloradans, especially the patients themselves, is important," Hauser says. "We're asking every patient and supporter to call their congressperson, tell them that they're a constituent in their district, and let them know that we have a state system that's working, and federal interference isn't right.

"We have the most highly regulated medical marijuana system in the country," she continues, "and they're doing a great job of safely regulating medical marijuana here. There's never been an issue of kids getting marijuana from a dispensary. In fact, kids can't even go into one. So we're asking the U.S. Attorney to cease his action and stop trying to shut down dispensaries that are legal under state law, and which spent hundreds of thousands of dollars complying with state laws. And we're asking our representatives in Colorado to contact John Walsh and ask him to stop interfering with this tightly regulated law."

Meanwhile, today's rally is intended as a response to another recent controversy -- the health department's decision to deny or reject medical marijuana license applications from patients who may have been examined by nurse practitioners or physician assistants, as opposed to actual doctors. The denial-versus-rejection distinction is important. If it can be proven that a patient didn't see a doctor, the application will be denied and affected patients won't be allowed to apply again for six months -- and since some of them previously faced long delays, the actual span could be nearly a year. However, if the department isn't certain a doctor wasn't involved, the application will merely be rejected, and a patient can reapply immediately.

Denied patients can appeal this decision, but MMAPA regional director Miguel Valdez says the process has been unnecessarily laborious.

"Patients who've been receiving letters of denial" -- the MMAPA estimates that there have been at least 460 of them so far -- "are being told they have to wait indefinitely for someone from the CDPHE to contact them for their appeal. And while we applaud the CDPHE for trying to make sure patients have safe access, these patients are being punished for seeing nurse practitioners or PAs who they thought were perfectly okay to examine them.

"These patients have a legitimate need for medical cannabis, whether they're AIDS patients, cancer patients or have chronic pain conditions like sciatic nerve conditions, and many of them have been on the registry for multiple years. We'd like to see an expedited process so patients who were denied can have their appeal and be allowed to reapply to the registry, so they can continue to use their preferred choice of medicine."

About a hundred of those who've been denied have begun the appeal process, Valdez estimates, but in his view, that's not nearly enough. Moreover, he sees the department's approach as forcing innocent patients to stop using their medication even though they had nothing to do with what the CDPHE considers to be a fraudulent recommendation.

"This is affecting everyone," he maintains. "Patients lose faith in the medical marijuana program if they are constantly facing hurdles and obstacles. They're just going to throw up their hands and say, 'Screw it.' And that will lead them to go back to the black market, where there aren't any regulations, where they don't have safe access, and where they're considered criminals just for obtaining the medication they need. And it negatively affects businesses that have been trying to build goodwill between patients and have been trying to play by the rules of the game.

"We don't want to be combative with the CDPHE," Valdez stresses. "But someone somewhere is telling them to make things difficult for patients and the industry, and that's unacceptable."

The rally takes place at noon at the CDPHE offices, at 4300 Cherry Creek Drive South.

Hold your rallies you want as I have said many times before they don't give a shit about you.  The prohibition of cannabis is big business for the cops. Bureaucrats with automatic weapons don't like you taking their pay checks away, by making any progress towards cannabis legalization, you fucking stoners.

There are more things that need to be protested than just the Well Docs mess. The Colorado MMJ program has went from the best in the country to one of the most messed up by all the stupid ass fly by night regulations they pass on a whim with out thinking about the long term and what affect it will have on patients.

The CDPH has become so inept that they cannot even do the job they are tasked to do in a timely manner as stated in the constitution. No one should ever have to wait 35 days plus for a red card. All this money they took in last year and the lessons learned from the debacle last year where patients waited 6 months or more to get a card was all for naught.

They are still running way behind on getting people their cards and this is the not the people tied up in the mess with the PA's seeing patients. I saw a real doctor with legitimate conditions ( Chron's Disease and Ankylosing spondilitis. I have years of records proving my conditions. There should be no excuse why I should have to wait 39 days and counting. They wont even respond to my emails asking what is the hold up.

The CDPH needs a serious over haul and get some competent people or more people to help process patients paperwork. There so many things wrong with the way we are treated and just pushed around at their whim and there is not a damn thing we can do but sit and wait and wait.

One thing they could do is stagger the patients renewal dates through out the year evenly. So we all arent applying during the holidays to get a card because of the cluster fuck last year it pushed most all patients renwals in about  90 day period. Also if they arent going to get card out in a timely manner then they need to let us apply even earlier than they do now. The limits they set in a normal world should be plenty to get your card renewed. However in this cluster fuck we find ourselves now it is routinely longer than 60 days. If there is a problem with clerical errors you can forget getting your card for at least 2 to 3 months.

I am sick and throwing up and cannot get any relief because I cannot get my card renewed in a timely manner. I am losing weight fast and cannot hold food down. MMJ is the only thing I can use to stop the nausea dead in its tracks. Pills dont even phase it and plus if it did when your throwing up every thing you cant hold the pills down. Couple more weeks and I will end up in the hospital.

CO: "Lavish Affair" Ganja Gala Friday,  Jan. 27th  (ganjagala.com) speaks POORLY to  the Public, Business Owners, MMJ Patients, Activists, and Advocates, alike.

In a time when DEA Raids are coming to the Rockies and continue with greater frequency in San Diego, two Colorado groups MMAPA & NCIA attempt to "Party It Up" with $150. A person VIP benefit acess to a 'Speakeasy Lounge' Downtown.

Of course, it's not surprising, these are the same folks who lobbied our Legislature, behind the scenes, with "Backdoor" bags of cash for Politicians to lobby and pass HB-1284, The law which validated the New Cannabis Industry.  At least in some folks eyes.

While REAL Patients and activists are "Left Out in the Cold" selling apples, like a Bad 1920's movie, the celebration will continue with these, mostly 'Carpetbaggers', who came to the Rocky Mountain State on a new gold rush which isn't panning out so well.

C.D.P.H.E. new statistics will soon be released which reflect the reality of many thousands of legal patients actually dropping OUT of the statewide MMJ Program.  

It appears the "Seed to Sale" Dispensary Model in this state is floundering.  With a large contingency of business influence and 2012 lobbying effort going to the Colorado Legislators seeking help with Banking,  there isn't EVEN one institution in the state willing to do business with these folks, yet a party is in order?

Maybe this is the Backdoor Speakeasy where 'paid off' politicians can be invited to be impressed, But this writer feels OCCUPY GALA would be a more fitting Protest for these 1% millionaires.

From the purely patient standpoint, both groups have shown carpetbagger tendancies which don't speak kindly to their efforts to date.  

The first group has run into a 'Glich' for thousands of potential patients by providing a PA Physicians Assistants' recommendation, sidestepping the normal M.D. Recommendation state sanctioned process.  Just one example of how this group plays by its own rules.  These folks have been left with crossed-fingers and a "Closing Window" on a 30-day Appeal process to untangle their Medical-Indused Mess.  Indigent patients seeking medicine donation help have been historically given discount coupons to over-priced dispensary offerings instead of real help, according to credible sources.

The second group, formed by a woman who didn't know who 'Cheech & Chong' was just a couple of years ago, is a nation-wide effort to rally business owners to donate money, so they can do Washington, D.C. Lobbying, and appears to be directly aligned with the efforts of Billionaire legalization forces George Soros and Progressive Insurance Ohioan Peter Lewis.  

These two 1%-ers, through six-digit donations to numerous states initiatives, including Washington & Colorado give this Party some extra Spark.  The apparent catch, adding language which insures a new DUI-D marijuanaIndustry for Insurance Companies, Law Enforcement, and DefensenAttorneys.  But, I guess that's how it is done in the world of big money politics.  These folks live in a different world from you and me!

And, in the background at this party, professionals like "Keep it in Your Pants" MPP's Rob Kampia ( see also http://www.celebstoner.com/201... ) and Safer's Steve Fox will be dancing to the unsung drummer with the hopes of a I-30 win this November, further empowering everyone involved with a "Legalization" model that is merely a mirror of Colorado's Failed Medical Marijuana "Seed to Sale" Dispensary model with a new DUI-D twist.  

This week, the Legalize 2012 effort was released for Public Comment (see http://www.Legalize2012.com ).   

With the Feds basically at Colorado's doorstep (see also http://www.denverpost.com/brea... ), and letters are said to have been sent out this week from the U.S. Attorneys office to 23 Colorado medical-marijuana  dispensaries (out of 700) within 1,000 feet of school  that they must close.  Is this, then, a time for Lavish Parties?

But, the party will still go on as planned.  Attended, I'm sure, by politicians like Senator Pat Steadman, who it appears will be pushing Hard this 120-day legislative session for a Pot-Bank as an answer to the new Cannabis Industry (Colorado Medical Marijuana Industry's "home team" in the Capitol. ow.ly/8rvse ).

It is good to know, as of press time, ALL of these 1%-er organizations have finally come together to admit their unholy alliance against any activists or groups who do not follow their hidden pro-business agendas, and also release a statement to the US Attorney John Walsh expressing their need for dispensaries.

I'm really surprised ASA Americans for Safe Access and Norml national didn't sign on as well since they maintain the same elitist posture? (See also, MMJ Community responds to Federal Crackdownhttp://www.kjct8.com/news/3021... ).

Sorry to burst your bubble, but Joint Statements have Little or No effects on the likes of Walsh and the US Attorneys' office.  This is just another deluded publicity release brought to you from the folks who are the reason the Feds are here in the first place!

It was the 1%-ers from MMIG and CBIA and the rest who HAD to pay off the politicians to make new laws allowing for dispensaries, and NOW, they are crying foul because they are about to be Financially (& otherwise) SPANKED by the DEA.  

They all thought their invested money in Smoozing with former DEA Agent Matt Cook would provide PAID protection against these types of pending RAIDS.

Just as in California, this will only be the First  Wave.  23 dispensaries out of compliance out of 700 dispensaries statewide, amd these Millionaires Dare to complain and provide 'statement'.

Organization 'Bashing' seems to be En Vogue, as indicated by "Toke of the Town" journailst Steve Elliot's recent call out of Norml's president Allen St. Pierre for insensitive remarks of medical marijuana being a 'Fraud' and 'Sham'.( See Also-NORML should apologize to the Medical Marijuana Community http://www.tokeofthetown.com/2... 

Other  Colorado State Legislative activities to be watched that have been instigated this session include:• Hemp Study pushed by Lawmakers could Aide Toxic Clean Uphttp://m.coloradonewsagency.co...•State Senator Plans to reintroduce Bill to Stop Driving while Stonedhttp://www.denverpost.com/brea...

Guess these folks who want to "RALLY" at the C.D.P.H.E. don't NEED to let any patients know about the effort, short of this article by Michael Roberts 8am the "Day Off", what gives?? Pro-Industry forces, no doubt, stirring the pot....late, as usual!

Maybe protests around the "Operation: Sweet Leaf" effort might be better suited! Oh, that's right, these folks(1%-ers, dispensary owners) actually WANT these types of RAIDS, since it cuts into their profit margins! Greedy Bastards!

It WILL give them ALL something to talk about at the GANJA GALA!

Pretty sure the weed they are talking about is still considered illegal unless they are lying which is possible. Based on the report even if cannabis was 100% legal in Colorado these busts would still occur so i dont see what the big deal is about. Business as usual on that front im sure.Stay legal,Vote for complete legalization http://legalize2012.com/

Jesus said to do unto others as we would have them to do unto us. None of us would want our child or grandchild thrown in jail with the sexual predators over marijuana. None of us would want to see an older family member’s home confiscated and sold by the police for growing a couple of marijuana plants for their aches and pains.If ordinary Americans could grow a little marijuana in their own back yards, it would be about as valuable as home-grown tomatoes; it would put the criminals out of business and get them out of our neighborhoods.

Called my Doctor this morning to get my paperwork updated although my Red Card is current and i was interested in producing my own Phoenix Tears and the Doctor told me not to request a extended plant count for producing this medicine because any DA could still press charges on more than 6 plants regardless of any documention this Doctor could provide me. My Doctor told me anything beyond 6 plants "could" send up a red flag based on other legal patients experiances that my Doctor knows currently. Looks like there is more to be protesting at the Dept. than what's on todays agenda and if the Dept. is setting patients up for a fall as this suggests why would anybody continue to provide this damning evidence against themselves.The registry is queitly picking patients apart behind the scenes as well as on the front lines and is why the cops are showing up at patients doors with warrant in hand and fully informed.Patients need to wake up to the fact that this is happening right under our noses and if you are stupid enough to believe the registry is confidential then i have some nice land south of Florida for real cheap i would like to sell you.

who cares anymore? what a shit show everyone involved has allowed this to become, either thru action or inaction. your all guilty. colorado mmj is dead and has been born again as a circus and you're all the clowns. have fun with the feds you shit stains. no one has your back. not your state, not your city, not your county, not your municipality or even your industry peers.

A better protest would be for no one to use the CDPHE registry anymore.  Another idea for the protest is a marijuana week of silence, all dispensaries close, no infusing products, turn off the DOR cameras, no mmj news articles in Westword, no Facebook posts about marijuana.  A week of marijuana silence would have a profound impact and make way for regrouping which is needed.  I'm calling for 4.21.12 - 4.28.12 to be the cannabis week of silence in Colorado.  See what it would be like if medical marijuana never happened.  This will truly blow up in the national news!

Some simple facts:

* A rather large majority of people will always feel the need to use drugs, such as heroin, opium, nicotine, amphetamines, alcohol, sugar, or caffeine.

* Just as it was impossible to prevent alcohol from being produced and used in the U.S. in the 1920s, so too, it is equally impossible to prevent any of the aforementioned drugs from being produced and widely used by those who desire to do so. 

* Due to Prohibition (historically proven to be an utter failure at every level), the availability of most of these mood-altering drugs has become so universal and unfettered that in any city of the civilized world, any one of us would be able to procure practically any drug we wish within an hour.

* The massive majority of people who use drugs do so recreationally - getting high at the weekend then up for work on a Monday morning. 

* A small minority of people will always experience drug use as problematic.

* Throughout history, the prohibition of any mind-altering substance has always exploded usage rates, overcrowded jails, fueled organized crime, created rampant corruption of law-enforcement - even whole governments, while inducing an incalculable amount of suffering and death. 

* The involvement of the CIA in running Heroin from Vietnam, Southeast Asia and Afghanistan and Cocaine from Central America has been well documented by the 1989 Kerry Committee report, academic researchers Alfred McCoy and Peter Dale Scott, and the late journalist Gary Webb.

* It's not even possible to keep drugs out of prisons, but prohibitionists wish to waste hundreds of billions of our money in an utterly futile attempt to keep them off our streets.

* Prohibition kills more people and ruins more lives than the prohibited drugs have ever done.

* The United States jails a larger percentage of it's own citizens than any other country in the world, including those run by the worst totalitarian regimes, yet it has far higher use/addiction rates than most other countries.

* The urge to save humanity is almost always a false-face for the urge to rule it.- H. L. Mencken (1880-1956) American editor, essayist and philologist.

* 2010 Reported Corporate Revenues:

    Johnson & Johnson = $61.90 billion

    Pfizer= $50.01 billion

    GlaxoSmithKline = $45.83 billion

    Novartis = $44.27

    Sanofi-Aventis = $41.99 billion

    AstraZeneca = $32.81 billion

    Merck & Co. = $27.43 billion

    Eli Lilly = $21.84 billion

    Anheuser-Busch InBev (2007) = $16.70 billion

    MillerCoors = $3.03 billion

    Pabst = $0.50 billion

* As with torture, prohibition is a grievous crime against humanity. If you support it, or even simply tolerate it by looking the other way while others commit it, you are an accessory to a very serious moral transgression against humanity.

* The United States re-legalized certain drug use in 1933. The drug was alcohol, and the 21st amendment re-legalized its production, distribution and sale. Both alcohol consumption and violent crime dropped immediately as a result, and very soon after, the American economy climbed out of that same prohibition engendered abyss into which it had foolishly fallen.  

“You can always count on Americans to do the right thing, after they’ve tried everything else.” - Winston Churchill

NorthMetro Task Force raids Dozens of Grow Houses

http://www.dailycamera.com/new... 

Investigators say the raids were on a single organization growing marijuana in Colorado and then shipping it to as many as eight other states. The DEA, U.S. Postal Service and IRS are all involved in the investigation as well.

The investigation does not involved marijuana grown for alleged medicinal uses.

Task Force investigators raided 25 homes in the following cities:

Denver - 4Breckenridge - 1Frederick - 1Unincorporated Adams County - 1Thornton - 4Broomfield - 3Northglenn - 1Brighton - 5Strasburg - 1Bennett - 1Commerce City - 1Westminster - 1Erie - 1

Actually, to clarify, it was Mobile Doctors of America (that does the medical marijuana evaluations). MMAPA, the non-profit organization, works with MDARX to provide indigent patients discounts on their medical marijuana evaluation. We fully recognize how the two are intertwined with one another (after all, we host MDARX on the MMAPA website.)Here's a link from Dr.Wright's assistant, offering an explanation of the use of PA's and why, after receiving a letter of approval from DORA (Department of Regulatory Agencies), he and MDARX thought they were OK with using PA's (or NP's). .

http://mmapa.us/mmapa-mdarx-ev...  (Click on the link titled: Specific Instructions For Patients Seen by Dr. Frank Wright)

Being candid, this has sucked IMMENSELY for patients. I disagree with the CDPHE's decision to just hold, then reject/deny patients' applications. They could have chosen a more pragmatic approach to this, but came down so heavy-handed. We have all had calls ranging from anger at MDARX or MMAPA, disgust with the system, or just utter despair as people cry on the phone, hysterical that they can't have access to their cannabis medicine. That's the part about all this that really pisses me off.

Caregivers and MMCs whats the first thing they ask for when you try to purchase some meds or other stuff? Can I see your red card please? Did you even think before posting your comment calling me a whiner?  Lets look at this again. No card MMC and CAREGIVERS will not even talk to you. Sad fact but its the way it is now.

 I dont care what amendment 20 says. Did you forget Amend 20 was gutted last year? The law is the law and now  you have to have a red card to buy from a MMC and Caregivers wont take you on either. Plus I dont buy enough for a caregiver to take me on. ( Thank you 5 patient limit). I am sure there are a few people with a heart and not dollar signs in their eyes but finding one is not easy. I was turned down by the couple that I was able to contact during the 35 days I was legal. I am past that now and no one will even let me in. As much as I hate the new laws I abide by them and dont ridicule others for doing so

Yes amendment 20 says after 35 days you are considered legal but after 1284 thats not the case anymore. Yes affirmative defense with recommendation but that costs lots of money and plus who is going to bail me out for cultivation with out a red card and pay for my lawyer to defend my right to grow.

I was out of state for a year and just got back to renew my card. Growing while out of state is not possible. Well it is but I could not do it where I was.
