Quoted from Coloradoan Story: Judge rules medical marijuana plaintiffs not entitled to injunction
Author:  Loveland Connection staff
Quotation:
District Judge Daniel Kaup ruled today that the three medical marijuana dispensaries in Loveland suing the city and state because of a citywide ban have not proved they are entitled to an injunction allowing them to remain open.

Kaup said granting the injunction would be against the will of the voters and be a disservice to the public.

Attorneys representing the city of Loveland and state of Colorado presented closing arguments today, along with the plaintiffs' attorney, Rob Corry.

The defendants are Rocky Mountain Kind, Magic's Emporium and Colorado Canna Care, plus John and Jane Doe, medical marijuana patients.

During Corry's closing argument, Kaup told him Amendment 20, which Colorado voters passed to legalize medical marijuana, does not apply to everyone.

Help LocalBum make up his mind to move to Loveland...

I'm glad Loveland is taking a stand against MMJ.

Our family may be seeking a new home in the future, it's hard to overlook the benefits of locating in Loveland over Fort Collins.

The recent move of Fort Collins to allow even more Dope Stands into city limits only drives us away. We haven't made a dicision yet, however we can't overlook the demise of values Fort Collins is offering.

Please relocate immediately, LocalBum. Do you need help moving? Do you want help with getting boxes, tape, packing paper?

The only Dope Stand is the stand you are making LocalBum. It would definitely be a demise of values in Choice City if close minded individuals like yourself destroy this great thing due to uneducated prejudices. Care to discuss on my site without censorship? Probably not... Your kind of dialectic only works one sided, isn't that right?

So the Colorado Constitution doesn't apply to all Coloradoans...

*** During Corry's closing argument, Kaup told him Amendment 20, which Colorado voters passed to legalize medical marijuana, does not apply to everyone. ***

If you still consider the courts to be there to insure justice, think again. How about this lie:

  • A Colorado Constitutional Amendment passed by the voters of Colorado that doesn't apply to ALL Coloradoans. Please instruct us, your dis-Honour, where it says that in the Amendment...

This is just living proof that there are definitely more judges in the 8th. Judicial District to remove from the bench. The job of clearing the bench of individuals who only give lip service to justice isn't done yet.

Hopefully Mr Corry appeals immediately. yes

*** Kaup said granting the injunction would be against the will of the voters and be a disservice to the public ***

What nonsense... What is against the will of the voter is how the amendment has been implemented by the legislature. Nothing in the Amendment gives jurisdictions the authority to ban dispensaries or centers or whatever they want to call them.

But there's a very good analogy of what's going on. The historical comparison that fits is the legislation enacted by the Deep South after the Civil War to overturn the gains made by African-Americans in having their own self-rule and self-determination. That bullshit continued until the bloody sacrifices made by Freedom Riders in the 1960's woke the nation up. Maybe the Freedom Riders need to rise up again...
