I'm curious, how is the new law change working out in Colorado?

Its a bit more prominent. i had a buddy who was pulled over with a Half O, and the cop made him put it in the trunk out of arms reach while he was driving.I smell it a bit more. but all in all its close to no change .

The biggest change has been the opening of a couple "pot-clubs" where people can go and smoke. They don't sell, they just give smokers a place to smoke with others. However, its in a very gray area in the law since the amendment didn't allow such shops but the owners claim its fine due to the fact that its not public and they charge a fee to get in and check id.

Hang on... I don't know about Colorado, but Washington state had medical mariuana before prop 64, right? I read that a lot of small business dropped whatever they were doing and started selling cannacola and other medical mariuana. What happened to them? Did they have to stop selling, could they start selling to everybody or did they just keep on selling to everyone with a medical marijuana card? Sounds silly to write those cards for something that strictly speaking isn't illegal, right?

Anyway, if it was me I'd open a cozy little pot club next door to my marijuana dispensary. But I bet the pot stuff grows boring when it's legal and nobody really cares about it anymore, haha. They just smoke a spliff, eat a mars bar and go the **** to sleep.

In Colorado the new law stated that people can buy from legally registered shops, that those shops could legally sell, and that registered people could legally grow with the intent to sell, however, it did not specifically say what the process was going to be for those and that the state legislator would have to pass laws detailing how those would be allowed by 2014.

The Medical Marijuana shops are still around and little has changed for them, so far. Once the legislator deals with how non-medical shops will be allowed to sell and grow I suspect that most MM shops will lose a good chuck of their customer base or will become the normal sellers themselves. However it is completely possible that the state legislator will give everyone the finger and refuse to allow shops or growing operations; it is also possible and very likely that the federal government will use the law against us since those shops and growers must be locally registered and could use those registrations in order to launch raids, effectively stopping the whole law.

I'm not sure, but I think the medical marijuana shops are still around and nothing changed. I'm simply assuming that people 21+ can buy from there without requiring a medical marijuana card. If you didn't know already, you have to be 21+, you can only buy an ounce a day, you can't drive under the influence of marijuana, you can't sell to other people or give it to someone else, you can't smoke in public, and growing it for yourself is illegal.

It's still illegal at the federal level. Colorado passed the law mainly to gain attention and momentum for other anti-prohibition movements.

Not a whole lot. What a lot of people I think don't understand is that it's still very much illegal for people to smoke pot in public. So it's not like you're going to go down a major road or something and see stoners everywhere.

I feel like nothing really changed, since no ones made much noise about it.

Ditto in Washington.
