Photos and more below.
Today, the Colorado Department of Revenue and the Marijuana Enforcement Division jointly released emergency rules for the marijuana industry. The agencies stress that these mandates are temporary, meant only as placeholders until permanent rules are adopted. Our William Breathes went over the edicts and jotted down his first impressions about their most interesting elements. Check them out below, followed by the complete document and a press release from the DOR and the MED.

Applications

• Approval or denial within ninety days.

• State licenses are conditional upon local approval and a shop can't open with just state approval. Even if communities would rather abide by overall state rules, they must adopt their own regulations.

• Applicants must apply no less than thirty days out from license expiration, and the department may or may not send a reminder.

Managers may be paid based on gross profits, new profits or a base salary....

• The spouse of a licensee may also hold a license in "his or her own right," regardless of whether the couple files together or separately.

• A $500 application fee must be paid for each application by existing medical marijuana centers.

• A $5,000 application fee is required of everyone else, and it must be submitted along with the application.

Licensing fees are also due at the time of your application, although they'll be refused to those whose applications are denied. The licensing fees are due each year.

• Retail cultivation facility: $2.750.

• Retail manufacturing/infused license: $2,750.

• Testing facility license: $2,750

Hey Mikey, did Patty educate you on Poured vs. Pored ?

Noticed you eliminated that faux pas altogether.

Can't wait to see stoners vote themselves a 30% tax on their dope, and then whine and complain that the regulators won't leave them alone. We be high already, screw the "industry weed" and grow your own!

Prohibitionism (especially the brand touted by DonkeyHotay) is intensely, rabidly, frantically, frenetically, hysterically anti-truth, anti-freedom, anti-public-health, ant-public-safety, and anti-economy.

An important feature of prohibitionism (which it closely shares with fascism) is totalitarianism. That means: a police state apparatus; widespread surveillance, arbitrary imprisonment or even murder of political opponents, mass-incarceration, torture, etc.

Like despicable, playground bullies, prohibitionists are vicious one moment, then full of self-pity the next. They whine and whinge like lying, spoilt brats, claiming they just want to "save the little children", but the moment they feel it safe to do so, they use brute force and savage brutality against those they claim to be defending. 

Prohibitionists actually believe that they can transcend human nature and produce a better world. They allow only one doctrine, an impossible-to-obtain drug-free world. All forms of dissent, be they common-sense, scientific, constitutional, or democratic, are simply ignored, and their proponents vehemently persecuted.

During alcohol prohibition (1919-1933), all profits went to enrich thugs and criminals. While battling over turf, young men died on inner-city streets. Corruption in Law Enforcement and the Judiciary went clean off the scale. A fortune was wasted on enforcement that could have been far more wisely allocated. On top of the budget-busting prosecution and incarceration costs, billions in taxes were lost. Finally, in 1929, the economy collapsed. Does that sound familiar?

 So why is Mikey writing this if Bongsucker Billy is the one who browsed the new rules?

"...although they'll be refused [sic] to those whose applications are denied."

"Any owner with a felony must report it within ten days to the Department of Revenue."

Arrest or Conviction?

"Waste has to be make "unusable and unrecognizable as marijuana" before being tossed. Marijuana business waste has to go through proper disposal channels as well, including depositing the waste at licensed facilities."

Regulate Marijuana Like PLUTONIUM!

" A quarter-ounce limit to out-of-state visitors per transaction will be imposed. For residents, the limit is one ounce."

So they can do sequential transactions to obtain as much as they desire.

Edibles will be limited to 10 milligrams of active THC per serving, but packages can contain multiple servings.

Rendering the rule absurdly meaningless.

Good thing that lyin' Brian Vicente and mendacious Mason Tvert and the clueless bongsucking stoners who supported and voted for that rancid turd A64 surrendered TOTAL CONTROL of Marijuana over to these Prohibitionist Retards at the DOR.

@DonkeyHotay How are they going to regulate it to one ounce for residents and 1/4 ounce for non-residents without a registry of purchases? Are there any provisions to keep this new pot-smoker registry confidential like the medical registry? Do stoners really want the government to know how much pot they buy, and videotape and record every transaction? So future employers, insurers, schools, etc. can peruse this registry to see if you are a known-doper?

As far as the blogs go, Hotay IS my friend . I have met several from these here 'parts' & hope to one day include Hotay . If not, it's not like I'm not going to loose sleep or anything .

Go ahead & try to hurt or insult me . Kinda' hard to do to someone foster raised, crippled following one train & two car accidents, twice divorced and strung out on pain pills . 

Need more ammo, Michael ????

JJMC

@WeBeHigh There is no registry of non-medical purchases or purchasers. 


They'll regulate it when they bust you with more than an ounce in your possession.


Please try and keep up.

From the story -- "owners must make security footage available to law enforcement upon request."

"The Personal Info collected will be stored in DE-centralized dispensary databases, which must be made available to LAW ENFORCEMENT upon REQUEST -- no WARRANT required."

Lie all you want, but the law does not require information be stored in ANY database nor do the DOR rules mention even suggesting shops do such a thing.

Keep trying to change the subject all you want, but the fact remains that your information is not required to be stored in any centralized, state-run database when you shop at a recreational dispensary.

@JJMC "Yes, the process of checking the ID isn't different at all."

... what Liquor Stores are required to Check the ID for RESIDENCY?

You = continue to FLAIL and FAIL.

@DonkeyHotay

Yes, the process of checking the ID isn't different at all.
 

What you do after you check that ID is another story, however.

Again, try to stay on topic child.

What Liquor Stores are required to check RESIDENCY, and then sell only 1/4 bottle of wine to those who aren't Colorado residents?

 "what Liquor Stores are prohibited from selling you more than 1 (one) bottle of wine per transaction?

What liquor store employees are required to pass a background check and get a license from DOR?"

That hat has nothing to do with this discussion. Do try to stay on task, child.

"at the least, the customer will have to show PHOTO ID to prove their Age and Residency."

 And that information is not required to be stored anywhere - exactly like how liquor stores operate. 


Are you really that stupid, or do you just love pretending to be an ignorant fuckwit?

Which doesn't change the fact that if you go over the limit, it is your fault.

"If the purchaser uses a credit card, they will be further identified and tagged. Modern Marketing models of Loyalty Programs and Member Discount Offers will further compile Purchasers Personal Data into the Retail Store's POS/Customer Database ... a database -- store records --  that by DOR/MED Laws MUST BE made available to Law Enforcement."

So you agree that if the dispensary keeps your information, it's because you willingly gave it to them to store when they didn't have to do so.

So noted.

@JJMC "if you buy more than two ounces"

@DonkeyHotay

Nice try at diversion, but it doesn't change the fact that if you buy more than two ounces and have them in your possession, it's YOUR FAULT and not the dispensaries.

If you can't do the crime, don't do the time. But don't try blaming someone else for your ignorance of the law.

@JJMC "If YOU go to two different dispensaries in a day and buy more than one ounce, it's not the fault of the second dispensary -- it's YOURS for willingly breaking the law."

Who said anything about DIFFERENT dispensaries?

The Regulation noted by Billy/Michael states PER TRANSACTION, meaning you could purchase from the same dispensary, via sequential separate transactions in the same Day, Hour or even Minute.

Imagine a REGULATION/LAW that said 7-11 could only sell you 1 (one) bottle of ice tea PER TRANSACTION.

Fucking Retarded Regulations for Fucking Retards.



DonkeyHotay

@JJMC " But they also won't enter your name in any databases to that the cops can keep track of how much you purchase. "

The Retail Store will have to check ID to determine Age and Residency for the sale. If the purchaser uses a credit card, they will be further identified and tagged. Modern Marketing models of Loyalty Programs and Member Discount Offers will further compile Purchasers Personal Data into the Retail Store's POS/Customer Database ... a database -- store records --  that by DOR/MED Laws MUST BE made available to Law Enforcement.

@JJMC  "There is no registry of non-medical purchases or purchasers." -  Right, just like there is no gun registry in colorado, it's actually against the law to create one, however there is now a record for every gun purchased legally in the state so the government can track down every legal firearm transaction without a registry.  The state had no problem tracking down that woman that purchased the gun for evan ebel who then used it to murder the head of the DOC .... WITHOUT A GUN REGISTRY!  Not saying I care but don't assume your dispensary transactions are going to be private and secure from the government just because there is no "registry."

JJMC

You following the law after you've made a legal purchase of marijuana is YOUR PROBLEM, not the dispensaries.

If YOU go to two different dispensaries in a day and buy more than one ounce, it's not the fault of the second dispensary -- it's YOURS for willingly breaking the law.


See how that works? Now, run along and work on your summer reading. You mom needs to sign off so you don't get held back in the fourth grade again.

@WeBeHigh"They will NOT let you walk out of a retail marijuana store with more than you are supposed to have."

Where did I say they would? Of course they won't. 

 But they also won't enter your name in any databases to that the cops can keep track of how much you purchase. Read the goddamn laws and rules that were written, you dumb fuck.

WeBeHigh
WeBeHigh

@WeBeHighThe DOR regulates PURCHASES through STORES at a COUNTER where there are VIDEO SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS and SCALES that are tied into the DOR that keep track of every gram from SEED to SALE. 

They will NOT let you walk out of a retail marijuana store with more than you are supposed to have.

Do you really think you are going to be able to walk in and buy 16 ounces??? And you are going to be OK as long as you don't get searched by a cop outside a dispensary?

Do try and keep up, stoner.

JJMC fulfills the stereotype of stupid stoners. He doesn't even comprehend any of the new regulations at all. I'll bet he does or wants to OWN one of these dispensaries. More fodder for the DOR pot-prisons! "But that's not what I voted for!" he cried as he was hauled away by armed regulators, and put into a pot-prison that the stoners themselves funded with a 30% tax on the drug.

LOL! Thanks for the early morning laugh.
