didn't quite work out as hoped. Fremont County banned recreational sales/growing.
Canon City seemed a bit more receptive, but went for a moratorium to buy time to figure it out.
don't know about Trinidad yet. they need the tax money, but mayor solidly against it.

looks like home-grow (where to get seeds,clones?), medical cannabis and generosity of friends/family will be the norm for southern Colorado seniors until the fear/propaganda passes, tax greed kicks in and new elections are held. the black market won't go away until then.

Denver and Nederland might be the only places ready for stores in Jan. who's up for a chartered bus or limo ride?

fyi - Trinidad city council is voting on it today - extend their moratorium or go for the green-gold?

No need for that in my case anyway. Back in May, I was dealing with a painful case of The Shingles Virus. I didn't want to subject my body to the Percocet pain killer that was prescribed. So, I got a medical mj card. It worked like a charm for the pain. With my very infrequent use, the $70 purchase that I made at the Palisade dispensary, will last me several years. With todays greater potency, a little bit goes a long, long way. I cut a normal tootsie roll like edible dose into quarters, and that's just right for me. The first time I cut it in half, and that was too much for me. A little bit goes a long long way! No need for a trip to the big city.

i know what you mean. hope the recreational market doesn't disrupt the medical clients too much as the mmj shops convert. and the race to the most potent strains is a bit unnecessary. plenty of us are happy with moderate-to-low thc levels. hard to slow down those young entrepreneurs and the big business that will inevitably follow, though.

of course, pueblo county (outside pueblo city) is also allowing rec mj stores,
as are some of the ski resorts.

the pueblo motels did reduce their rates, about half, after the fair.
pretty reasonable for extended stay now, west of the i25/us50 interchange.
can scout west to canon city and high mountains or up to COS and further north from there.

southern colorado seniors, soothe your munchies in Pueblo Sep. 20-22 at the Chile & Frijoles Festival, while quenching your thirst with the famous Pueblo water. although, if the chiles are hot, milk might be a good option. who among us can resist a nice cold glass of milk?

Wake N' Bacon: Seattle Butcher Sells Pot-Infused Pork
Quote:
Pike Place Market butcher William Von Schneidau calls his latest creation the "pot pig."

And it's exactly what it sounds like: Von Schneidau, owner of BB Ranch Meats, has teamed up with local marijuana grower Top Shelf Organic to raise pigs fed on pot plants.

The so-called "pot-bellied porkers" are then turned into marijuana-infused bacon.

"It just got so popular we ran out of meat," von Schneidau recalled.

Though the weed does produce "redder and more savory" pigs, von Schneidau says the bacon itself won't get you high.

"I ate it and I don't feel a damn difference," von Schneidau told WLS-TV.

It's unclear if von Schneidau plans to make an additional batch of the "baked" bacon, but the man who once pumped a pig full of vodka says he's definitely not done experimenting. . .

A man after my own heart... another willing to admit that they'd drink the stuff right out of a pig's ear.

Trinidad seems to be in the final stages of decisions about medical and recreational cannabis, while it prepares for the upcoming Mayor/City Council election that will likely affect the outcome. Sep. 17 is the next important meeting. Many folks are probably unconcerned about the little "gateway to Colorado", but the issue has regional significance to southern Colorado, New Mexico, and other nearby states.

here are a couple of City Council meeting videos where they fumble around with the issues and related clerical/procedural matters. the voting split is pretty obvious.
