^^^^ I think you're gonna love the hemp protein. It has a very pleasant nutty flavor on its own, and it mixes quite easily even when simply hand stirred with a spoon ( I'm waaay too lazy to clean a blender, so I just stir it with a spoon ). My favorite liquid to mix it into is rice milk.

Exclamation Incoming commissioners ready to roll

Pueblo county is taking a progressive view on the new pot law. To be honest I was pleasantly surprised when I read it in the paper today but think its smart as Pueblo county could make a lot of tax revenue off of this.

This is from the Pueblo Chieftain:


Pueblo's new county commissioners foresee the local regulation and licensing of recreational marijuana shops as "smooth" and "exciting." Unlike the city, Pueblo County already licenses medical marijuana dispensaries. One incoming commissioner, Terry Hart, said that once the state Legislature implements statutes and if the federal government deems recreational pot acceptable despite law to the contrary, the county will rely on existing licensing models for medical pot and liquor. "It did say in Amendment 64 about treating marijuana like alcohol. I like to compare it to how we license our liquor distribution centers, and see if it matches up to what we're doing here," Hart said. "The exciting part is to see what we can do about taxing and applying those taxes to needed resources in the county."

LOL I'm now imagining a stoned teenager in a smoke filled room going,

"duuuuuude...."

I know it's completely irrelevant, but this is a pot-related thread so figured I might as well share the moment.

Honestly, as someone who has no interest in smoking, I don't truly have a horse in this race. I just hope it all works out and the state/communities see some tax revenue when it's all said and done. Oh and I want to live in a hemp house one day, 'cause that was just cool.

But like everybody I'm just in "wait and see" mode here...

Just because it's "legal" (and it's not even totally legal) doesn't mean the state is saying anybody can do it has the right to do so with no consequences. It just means that the state of Colorado isn't gonna go after smokers and put em in state prisons anymore. It is not a RIGHT. Nor is employment a RIGHT. You can still have consequences for smoking weed here, even if it's not necessarily jailtime.
so what do you think I meant when i brought up the subject of a test, dude ? and yall means 'you all' or everbody, dude.

srry, first multi-quote and i had to edit.

Hm. Yeah, our replies got all out of order! I think both of us are missing something in the whole lack of tone applied to words typed on a screen thing...and I apologize if you're one to be rubbed the wrong way by the occasional use of "dude." I don't throw it around every other word though...but ok. Some folks don't like it, that's alright. I had no issue with "y'all" as a word, but rather the implication of us all...

I guess my reaction was to the sense in your post that we "all" had to take a urinalysis periodically. Many of us don't, here in CO. It would only be those whose employment required it, and not all employers do...and those who do, would still go right on doing so, I would think.

I've personally never had an employer require such a test, although most have stated in their hiring documents that they reserved the right to request it at any time.
