thanks for your input guys, and yes I think we'll see more things clarified in the laws coming up.
I'm probably still going to stick with the six for now anyway, but its nice to know if I start new ones before the old ones move up to the next stage I won't get in trouble, or more specifically, if I do get in trouble I have grounds to fight it. the kicker in the law is the wording about as much marijuana as medically necessary
I heard a case recently that was very similar. I think in co springs? some guy had more for an edible recommendation and beat it in court so hopefully that will set a precedent. just starting my crop so I imagine I'll be on here asking for advice and such!

If you had a link to that C springs court case that would be great.

Some other wording in A 20 is "USEABLE MARIJUANA"

If it is necessary and you have significant evidence and studies, then state law does protect you.

But, People I've talked to noted, "The Federal Government will not recognize that"

I personally feel that is not necessarily a bad thing. Care-givers are not doctors, and frankly not chemist; If people had the option available to grow the amount of plants they actually needed, it would be amazing to those who actually benefit from that set amount (medicinally).

But as we've seen in many other cases, a small percentage of caregivers would've abuse it and taken it too far; it is the right of any person that meets the state law to become a caregiver which is the beauty, as well as the beast in this situation.

That would be terrible for the legitimate ex-cancer, severe pain (crushed disk), and severe muscle spasm who is trying to stay away from opiates, that takes thc pills.

It would/would've as well been detrimental to the progress we've made:
Even with the laws pretty relaxed we face:
2 extremely bias bills and now one convergent bill (the work of actually legislation, congress should model)
- Most people generally agree with the valid points of all three that promote general prosperity to everyone in the state, and generally disagree with patients' right's being taken away extremely un-rationally, with no regard to the facts.
- The General Public would have been shocked
---At least now with the talks of wellness centers (non-profits) the state will actually be able to regulate that...(if you strongly want the plant count option then this is one of them, but no more huge profit)

And to the note about the $5000.00
-->Caregivers are fine
---> Dispensaries had to register a couple of days ago, and pay the 5k registration fee. (its about time, lets see that money in schools)

The bottom line is bills are actually being talk about, and Colorado is going to set the model for the rest of the country.

How you can HELP =D Write a Letter or Email your State Rep. If you spend sometime (about 10 minutes), You can explain the MOST critical view in this situation, The People in Pain, The People who care for them, as well as The People around them that love them. Be sure to be formal, yet relaxed and please refrain from extremities (make sure to edit it or have someone that writes a lot of letters and proposals)

Thanks for you time, Hope that helps!

Greeting all, what a headache all these regs are to keep up with eh? It sure is nice to be able to medicate legally. I thought I had a good handle on general guideline stuff to do with growing and possessing until I came here and started reading.

But i got perscription for 50 plants and 16 oz for eatables but
under curent law i can only grow 6 plants.

If you give caregiver rights away you cant grow any...

This is going through the systen right now.
Is this so? I had heard that one can grow 6 plants/ 3< flowering at any time, and a caregiver could grow 6 more for you (in addition to yours)...Then I heard no...all hearsay, I tried fining something official about it on the web but couldn't. The hit me up for my caregivership in a dispensary so I told them that I am already growing and he said that I can still grow my 6 and they can too. I figured if anyone knew for sure, they would because they are mainstream...so I did but now, if what you say is true, then my 6 plants are illegal? Please say this isn't so.

Many patients are now eating raw or uncooked cannabis or juicing.
So having 50 scrawny plants confined to a small outdoor space once a year is not unreasonable if the intent is to grow your own medicine for the entire year.

Cannabis is Key to Good Health When We Eat it vs. Smoke it
January 3, 2013 by Joe Martino

canaIt is no secret that our world is seeing a huge increase in poor health and cancer cases. It should come as no surprise when we look at what we eat daily, the condition of our environment and the types of body care products we use daily that contain a ton of cancer causing agents. Mainstream medicine suggests that chemotherapy and radiation are the best means to go about treating cancer, but there is a growing body of evidence to suggest there exist much better cures.

Cannabinoids may very well be one of the best disease and cancer fighting treatments out there. If you have heard of Rick Simpson you have heard of his methods of preparing cannabis or hemp in such a way where he is able to extract the oil from it and use that oil to treat cancer. Rick has been very successful in his work and his popularity is growing as a result. At the same time, he has received a great deal of flack for his methods as they pose a serious threat to the business that is cancer.

What are cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids refer to any of a group of related compounds that include cannabinol and the active constituents of cannabis. They activate canbinoid receptors in the body. The body itself produces compounds called endocannabinoids and they play a role in many processes within the body that help to create a healthy environment. Cannabinoids also play a role in immune system generation and re-generation. The body regenerates best when it’s saturated with Phyto-Cannabinoids. Cannabinoids can also be found in Cannabis. It is important to note that the cannabinoids are plentiful in both hemp and cannabis. The differentiation between hemp and cannabis is simply that hemp only contains 0.3% THC while cannabis is 0.4% THC or higher. (Technically they are both strains of Cannabis Sativa.)

Cannabinoids have been proven to reduce cancer cells as they have a great impact on the rebuilding of the immune system. While not every strain of cannabis has the same effect, more and more patients are seeing success in cancer reduction in a short period of time by using cannabis. Contrary to popular thought and belief, smoking the cannabis does not assist a great deal in treating disease within the body as therapeutic levels cannot be reached through smoking. Creating oil from the plant or eating the plant is the best way to go about getting the necessary ingredients which are the cannabinoids. Another aspect of smoking the cannabis that must be looked at is the fact that when the cannabis is heated and burnt it changes the chemical structure and acidity of the THC which changes its ability to be therapeutic. Further, anytime you burn something and inhale it, you create oxidation within the body. That oxidation is not healthy for the body and can lead to health issues itself.

Cannabinoids can prevent cancer, reduce heart attacks by 66% and insulin dependent diabetes by 58%. Cannabis clinician Dr. William Courtney recommends drinking 4 – 8 ounces of raw flower and leaf juice from any Hemp plant.

Cannabis – whether Sativa, Indica, Ruderalis, male, female, hermaphrodite, wild, bred for fiber, seeds or medicinal resin – is a vegetable with every dietary essential we can’t synthesize: Essential Amino Acids, Essential Fatty Acids, Essential Cannabinoid acids and hundreds of anti-Cancer compounds. It is important to note that when we isolate to important compounds of cannabis and take them in supplement we miss out of the bio-synergistic compounds that go along with it in full plant form. This makes it more difficult for the body to determine what exactly it is taking in.

“If you heat the plant, you will decarboxylate THC-acid and you will get high, you”ll get your 10 mg. If you don’t heat it, you can go up to five or six hundred milligrams & use it as a Dietary Cannabis. . . and push it up to the Anti-oxidant and Neuro-protective levels which come into play at hundreds of milligrams,” stated Dr. William Courtney.

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) maintains our biological systems by regulating each cell tissue. It uses Arachadonic acid/Omega 6 to make Endo-Cannabinoids: fatty molecules that communicate harm between cells. Dietary Cannabis mimics the ECS by providing Cannabinoids when there is an Arachadonic acid deficiency or Clinical Cannabinoid Deficiency.

Doctors who have been researching cannabis and it’s benefits in diet for some time have recommended that people make cannabis a part of their everyday diet. To reiterate, the plant does not need to contain high levels of THC and it can simply be hemp. Eating Cannabis that does contain THC will not get you high. Also, smoking it does not give the same results as eating or juicing the plant. If we view the plant simple as a vegetable like all other vegetables we eat, it makes sense that we wouldn’t put it inside rolling papers and smoke it to get the nutritional benefits. (haha)

I believe the increased plant count does not protect you under state law but the doctors increase provides an affirmative defense after the fact.

If there is any question, as long as you can show the court (assuming you end up there) you are using the cannabis for your own personal medical needs you have an affirmative defense. It's not enough just having a docs recommendation you need to be accountable for how the meds are being used.
