The hand-wringing by lawmakers and others over medical marijuana just tickles me, or floors me. I still cannot tell.
You would think they were handing out AK-47s in the state's proliferating number of dispensaries. The Denver City Council now wants to keep them 1,000 feet away from schools. What isthatabout?
So, at 1,001 feet from a school, they can sell medical pot by the truckload?
My favorite proposed law is being dreamed up by state Sen. Chris Romer, whom I admire greatly. But he proposes raising the age at which a patient can legally obtain marijuana for medical use from 18 to 21.
Let us say it is your kid, my kid. Who are you or I going to trust more for what our kids need — Romer, or our family doctor? How quickly would you find the nearest street dealer to assist your pain-ravaged child? Come on.
We really and truly need grown-ups to step forward in this debate.
