On November six of two thousand and twelve, Amendment sixty four passed by a majority of Colorado voters. This amendment is quite lengthy, but basically “legalizes” retail marijuana sales in Colorado. However, there are quite a few restrictions included.
You cannot smoke cannabis in public, can only grow up to six plants, and can carry up to an ounce of marijuana on your persons. These three quick rules, are just a tip of an iceberg, of quite a long laundry list of restrictions within this amendment. On November fifth of two thousand and thirteen, proposition AA passed, which created a ten percent retail sales tax on all retail marijuana purchases.
On May seventh of two thousand and thirteen, the Colorado State Legislature, a possible terror cell, passed a specific driving while stoned law. Basically, this law much like many other laws, is quite lengthy and stipulates that anyone caught driving with five nanograms of tetrahydrocannabinol or THC in their body, will be charged with driving under influence of drugs. Also, according to this law, anyone who declines a blood alcohol content test and urine analysis exam will have their driver’s license automatically suspended for one year.
Adding insult to injury a person also gets classified as a “persistent drunk driver”. Talk about your fifth amendment rights not existing. Another perhaps alarming aspect of “cannabis legalization” in Colorado is that even after amendment sixty four passed, multiple medical marijuana dispensaries have been raided.
As a matter of fact government military agencies such as the Drug Enforcement Agency, Internal Revenue Service, etc. have assisted local police and sheriff in Colorado, by stealing I mean raiding legitimate marijuana dispensaries even in two thousand and fourteen. Digging deeper I found out that federal terrorists, I mean agencies often times keep information about their raids a secret. I have read Amendment sixty four, a cannabis DUI law, and some search warrants for these raids and could not possibly cover all possible pitfalls with this so called cannabis legalization in Colorado, within this short blog post.
Some of the possible legal ramifications with amendment sixty four and a recently created marijuana DUI law are quite convoluted and complex. Did the colorado government really legalize cannibis? Is it a possibility that they have conned Colorado citizens and are possibly setting them up for stringent entrapment scenerios surrounding cannabis?
