Colorado medical marijuana turning up in Nebraska

Filed under: Daily News | Tags:,

Authorities say Colorado apparently has more medical marijuana than it can use, and some of the excess is showing up in Nebraska – illegally.

Scottsbluff Police Alex Moreno told the Lincoln Journal Star that the Colorado pot has shown up in his town and around Sidney.

Licensed patients in Colorado can have 2 ounces of usable marijuana and no more than three mature plants. But because the plants can produce up to a pound each, the surplus could reach into dozens of tons.

The pot is showing up in traffic stops, too.

Lt. Lance Rogers of the Nebraska State Patrol says travelers often have cards that say they can legally possess the pot in Colorado. But, he says, Nebraska doesn’t have such a law, so the Coloradoans are cited.

  1. Medicinal Cannabis is highly effective in a wide variety of medical conditions, ranging from cancer to glaucoma to chronic pain, to PTSD.. It is amazing that in our day and age the Feds and their DEA cling to outdated “dogmas” and suppress further research into the remarkable medicinal properties of the Cannabis plant. I cannot believe that this Inquisition-style repression with regards to science and scientific research is even possible in contemporary America, of all places. But the fact remains very clear: Cannabis is not physically addictive and the so-called “gateway drug” theory is nonsense. I was very impressed with Arizona voters this past election because despite all the scare-tactics, all the deceptions, all the distortions, the voters of Arizona, many being rather Conservative, still voted for their own interests, for the medicinal Cannabis, and against the “politicos” “dogma”. Cannabis is Medicine, people, it has been medicine for thousands of years, and it will still be medicine long after the current prohibitionist crowd passes into oblivion! Legalize Medicinal Cannabis in all 50 States ASAP!

  2. If you have any doubts about cannabis actually being a safe and effective medicine, please run a search for “Granny Storm Crow’s MMJ Reference LIst”- it’s free online. All I’ve done is collect links to medical studies, and some news articles about the studies, and put them into some semblance of order. You get to read the actual studies for yourself and learn the facts about cannabis from reliable medical sources. Don’t depend on the cops, self-serving politicians, “High Times” magazine or DARE to get your information about cannabis! Educate yourself!

    WebMD is a readable medical site. They take the long and often complicated studies and reduce them to a short, but accurate article. These are titles of some WebMD article links in my list.

    “Marijuana’s Active Ingredient Targets Deadly Brain Cancer”

    “Marijuana Ingredients Slow Invasion by Cervical and Lung Cancer Cells”

    “Marijuana Unlikely to Cause Head, Neck, or Lung Cancer”

    “Marijuana May Fight Lung Tumors”

    “Marijuana Ingredient May Cut Fibromyalgia Pain”

    “Marijuana Chemical Fights Hardened Arteries”

    “Chemicals in Marijuana May Fight MRSA”

    “Pot-Based Drug Promising for Arthritis”

    “Cannabis May Help Multiple Sclerosis”

    “Marijuana May Slow Alzheimer’s”

    “Marijuana Smoking Doesn’t Kill”

    “Teen Pot Smoking Won’t Lead to Other Drugs as Adults”

    After reading just those titles,is it any wonder that so many of us are fighting to legalize medical use in all 50 states? Cannabis must be rescheduled!
