“So let me get this straight. If I stand in the upper right quadrant of this Monument, I can buy all the cannabis I want and for any reason. In the lower right corner, I can grow my own medicinal cannabis and use it for a variety of conditions. If I am standing in the lower left quadrant, I can buy medical cannabis from a state-run dispensary. I can even get home delivery.

(John Siciliano) The Environmental Protection is admitting to a spill from a treatment plant it set up after it dumped 3 million gallons of toxic wastewater into a Colorado river last year.

Since the recreational use of cannabis became legal, Colorado authorities are scrambling to apply rules and regulations to this new reality. They have established a 5 ng/ml blood-THC limit for operation of a motor vehicle, which seems to be arbitrary as there is no preponderance of data to support a specific number.
