March 15, 2014, 9:48 amFill them coffers Colorado!
from a yahoo article...sorry but couldn't helphighlighting key parts.
Even though all this is good,it doesn't solve our problem of those who manage our tax dollars using them un- appropriately
Los Angeles (AFP) - Marijuana sales in Colorado brought in $3.5 million in tax revenues and fees in the first month retail pot outlets were allowed, the western US state said Monday.
The figure included $2.9 million in taxes for recreational and medical marijuana in the month of January, and nearly $600,000 in fees, said Colorado's Department of Revenue.
The Rocky Mountain state had legalized pot in 2012, but made drug history on January 1 by inaugurating retail sales of marijuana for recreational use. It levies a 15 percent excise tax and a 2.9 percent sales tax.
“The first month of sales for recreational marijuana fell in line with expectations,” said tax department chief Barbara Brohl, while cautioning that the size of the industry might take a few months to become clear.
Initial projections had suggested 40 businesses would be up and running on January 1, but in fact only 24 were by then. By the end of January,59 businesses had filed tax returns.
After Colorado, Pacific Northwest state Washington is set to follow suit later this year -- even though, under federal law, marijuana remains as illegal as heroin, ecstasy and LSD.
In Alaska, campaigners are "very hopeful" of putting legalization to a popular vote in August. Similar efforts in Arizona, California, Maine, Massachusetts, Montana, Nevada and Oregon are under way, though in more preliminary stages.
President Barack Obama's administration told federal prosecutors last August to stop targeting individual marijuana smokers in states where legalization is in place.
Colorado said that, in the first few months of retail sales, tax and fee revenues will be "significantly affected in both directions" by various factors.
A "possible increase in initial demand" could boost sales at first, while the speed with which pot shops are licenced and how readily they can get supplies, may also have an impact.
“We expect clear revenue patterns will emerge by April and plan to incorporate this data into future forecasts,” said Brohl.

February 8, 2014, 7:50 amthere they go..f@cking up another industry
I saw this headline today
A $1.5 Billion Industry Braces for FDA Regulation..""
...I will say this...BULL!
WHY CAN'T PEOPLE LEAVE WELL ENOUGH ALONE?!?!?!?!..it's win win for everyone.The tobacco industry stays in tact even though folks transition from regular smoking andpeople stay employed in that sector because the need for liquid nicotine is off the charts.
The liquid for the vaporizing devices are Made here
Most of the better variable vaping devices are made here
The only 3 ingredients for making smoking liquid are something that is already legal..ALREADY LEGAL!
USP gradeA propylene glycole-//USP gradeA vegetable glyserine-and what ever and whatever concentrated flavoring agent
For years leaders of this country tried to sway folks from smoking one way or the other.I find it bordering on isanity to hoard on regulations
to thwart growth on this product.All this does and will do is force us to buy from china yet again if we want these things.
The only good thing for me is if this vaporizing thing spirals out of affordability because of insane regulations,I won't need to purchse eliquids any longer as I have already stopped regular smoking for months now.

January 20, 2014, 7:23 pmFrom death to diamonds
just read this from NPR..
Diamonds are supposed to be a girl's best friend. Now, they might also be her mother, father or grandmother.
Swiss company Algordanza takes cremated human remains and — under high heat and pressure that mimic conditions deep within the Earth — compresses them into diamonds.
Rinaldo Willy, the company's founder and CEO, says he came up with the idea a decade ago. Since then, his customer base has expanded to 24 countries.
Each year, the remains of between 800 and 900 people enter the facility. About three months later, they exit as diamonds, to be kept in a box or turned into jewelry.
Most of the stones come out blue, Willy says, because the human body contains trace amounts of boron, an element that may be involved in bone formation. Occasionally, though, a diamond pops out white, yellow or close to black – Willy's not sure why. Regardless, he says, "every diamond from each person is slightly different. It's always a unique diamond."
Most of the orders Algordanza receives come from relatives of the recently deceased, though some people make arrangements for themselves to become diamonds once they've died. Willy says about 25 percent of his customers are from Japan.
At between $5,000 and $22,000, the process costs as much as some funerals. The process and machinery involved are about the same as in a lab that makes synthetic diamonds from other carbon materials.
The basic process reduces the ash to carbon, then slides it into a machine that applies intense heat and pressure — for weeks. That's at least several hundred million years faster than diamonds are made in nature.
"The more time you give this process, the bigger the rough diamond starts to grow," Willy says. After the new diamond cools off, the crystal isground and cut to shape, and sometimes engraved with a laser.
It only takes about a pound of ashes to make a single diamond, Willy says. His company has created up to nine diamonds from one individual's ashes.
Algordanza isn't the only company blinging out the afterlife, either. An American company called LifeGem offers the same services, and there are a number of U.S. patents for similar procedures.
Most of the time, Willy says, people take the diamonds to a jeweler to be made into rings or pendants.
"I don't know why, but if the diamond is blue, and the deceased also had blue eyes, I hear almost every time that the diamond had the same color as the eyes of the deceased," says Willy, who personally delivers the diamonds to his Swiss customers.
Each time, he says, the family is happy that their loved one has, in a sense, returned home. And in sparkling form to boot.

....you'd think if you plan a jailbreak in January you'd at least hit up a shelter for a coat or at least since you're a criminal
steal one from a department store.
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Just how cold is it in Kentucky? Apparently cold enough for an escaped prisoner to decide to turn himself in.
Authorities say the inmate escaped from a minimum security facility in Lexington on Sunday. As temperatures dropped into the low single digits Monday, they say he walked into a motel and asked the clerk to call police.
Lexington police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts says 42-year-old Robert Vick of Hartford told the clerk he wanted to turn himself in and escape the arctic air.
Roberts says Vick was checked out by paramedics and returned to Blackburn Correctional Complex.
Department of Corrections spokeswoman Lisa Lamb says Vick would have been dressed in prison-issued khaki pants, a shirt and a jacket when he escaped. Wind chill readings were 20 below zero Monday in Lexington.
