Construction began several weeks ago on a new sound wall along Highway 36 on the western edge of Planet Bluegrass. The eight foot tall sound barrier is the final element relating to the North St. Vrain bridge projects, which were rebuilt by the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) in 2007. “This was part of the plan all along,” says Planet Bluegrass president Craig Ferguson.

PCDC Discusses Annexation Changes

Surprisingly, eight citizens and two Trustees showed up at Monday evening’s Planning and Community Development Commission (PCDC) meeting. Not surprisingly, six of the citizens were there to talk about unexplored options (the banning of cultivation, infusion, and sale of medical marijuana) the Town might consider. Unfortunately for those six hearty souls who had braved the frigid temperatures instead of watching the Auburn/Oregon game, medical marijuana was not on the agenda. What was on the agenda were possible amendments to the Town’s annexation procedures.

An In Depth Look At Medical Marijuan, Part III

By Ed Bruder

In full disclosure, I am a Trustee for the Town of Lyons, a patient advocate member of the Department of Revenue’s (DoR) Medical Marijuana Working Group, I am a patient myself, a caregiver, and a current business license holder. At this time I have NO financial interest in any medical marijuana business. I write this as an individual member of these various communities. I don’t speak for the Board of Trustees (BoT), and I don’t speak for anyone else but myself.

This week I want to provide the reader with some detailed information about cannabis research in the United States, and how cannabinoids work in the animal/human body.
