Palisades, cialis saleshere CO – A group trying to ban dispensaries in Palisade has turned in almost 200 signatures to the town’s clerk Carol Speakman.
“There were only 85 [signatures] required, medical ” says Diane Cox, “so we have over twice as many signatures as were required.”
Cox is the driving force behind the petition. If it’s validated, the town board will decide whether to pass the ban directly or send the issue to voters.
Cox is opposed by the area’s only dispensary Colorado Alternative Healthcare. The shop and its supporters have a problem with how Cox obtained her signatures.
“She laid out a lot of false, misleading accusations towards our business, towards the cannabis industry,” says dispensary co-owner Desa Loughman.
Three signatures have already been thrown out, and eight more will be thrown out because they were collected by an unregistered petitioner.
The town clerk will make her decision regarding the validity of the petition within the next few days, and then the town board will make its decision on what to do with the petition. If it goes to voters, the election would likely be held November 1.

I just got off the phone with Diane Cox of East Orchard Mesa and Rocky Mountain Peach Company (970) 464-7636. After asking her what her reasons and motives were on trying to ban Cannabis centers, she replied “this has gone way beyond what the voters intended with Amendment 20.” I asked her what specifically has gone way beyond Amendment 20 and she started to reference the 3 flowering plants and how this is for seriously ill patients.
Well my first question to her was “are you aware of the trial in Boulder August 2009, that addressed Amendment 20 directly as to the fact that patients are the ones who determine how much they use and the 3/3 plant reference is just a reference?” She got very flustered and told me that is all she had to say and hung up.
I am sorry but she should not be given the time of day, let alone news coverage, if she is unable to have concrete reasons for her “feelings” let her be insane on her own. Science and evidence are what make a difference and her reasoning has neither.Mrs. Cox are you a physician that has been trained to make a diagnosis by looking at people? If so, please contact me as I have a circus show to put you in.
Boycott East Orchard Mesa and Rocky Mountain Peach Company in Palisade, Colorado if you are concerned about the health and well being of your fellow American. Let them know what they think
