Medical Marijuana Benefits the Colorado Economy and Resident’s State of Mind

Medical marijuana is legal in 15 states and Washington D.C.—but only after extreme movements to get laws passed.  It was definitely worth the fight for Colorado, however, because medical marijuana has improved the economy and well being of chronic pain sufferers within the state.

Benefits of Medical Marijuana to the Colorado Economy


Since it’s also legal for Colorado residents to grown the Medical marijuana, legalization of the drug has brought plenty of economical benefits to Colorado residents. With hundreds of medical marijuana stores, jobs have been created that would have either not existed, or been illegal in prior years (in the case that those same people sold marijuana illegally). On top of job openings for those qualified or licensed to sell medical marijuana, jobs were also created for residents who grow the herb to sell to the dealers.


How Medical Marijuana Helps Coloradans

With an additional tax on medical marijuana, those buying it for medical reasons help bring in funds to the state. In addition to the tax on the medical marijuana itself, licensed owners of marijuana dispensaries pay a registration fee to the state, increasing state revenue.

When compared with other pain relievers, most suffering from a chronic disease or illness would probably say cost is never a factor. When you are in so much pain that you can’t carry out normal activities or live life to the fullest, a solution needs to be sought quickly, no matter what the cost. While medical marijuana does in fact benefit the Colorado economy, it also has a large impact on the well being of so many residents who otherwise would be left in agony from their chronic illnesses. While medical marijuana may have an extremely positive impact on the Colorado economy, I’d argue it is having an even greater impact on the well being of Colorado residents suffering from chronic pain and severe illnesses.

Where to Buy Recreational Marijuana | Colorado Retail Dispensaries

Colorado Recreational Marijuana Dispensaries As of January 1st, 2014, the sale of recreational marijuana to anyone 21 and above is legal in Colorado.  Now that recreational marijuana is legal in Colorado, a handful of medical marijuana (MMJ) dispensaries now sell recreational pot to Colorado residents that don't have a MMJ license (AKA Red Card).

 Even though it's legal under state law to buy recreational marijuana in Colorado without a MMJ card, a number of cities have voted to ban the sale of recreational marijuana. Below is a list of Colorado cities that have bans on recreational marijuana dispensaries.

What's The Difference Between F1, F2, and F3 Weed Strain Seeds?

Just as with common flowers or other household plants (roses, pea plants, etc...), Cannabis seed strains can be grown and crossbred. This is usually done for the purpose of developing new breeds with different characteristics such as the size of the plant, yield, taste, effect, bud to leaf ratio, or other specific traits that the grower desires. As this cross breeding continues, the plants end up forming different weed strain seeds, or generations. These are often described as being either F1, F2, or F3. In order to really make some informed seed purchase decisions it is very helpful to understand the differences between these various seed strains.




F1 Seeds: The First Breeding: An F1 seed variety is created by breeding together two pure strains. For example, a tall plant (represented with two dominant genes, AA) is bred with a small plant (represented by the two small recessive genes, aa). Since the resulting plants will each receive one gene from each parent, this will result in offs…
