Marijuanna a question

Fewer Coloradans have signed up for the state’s medical-marijuana program than expected but officials say the pace may increase in coming months. Ninety-nine Coloradans are legally smoking marijuana with their doctor’s approval under the state’s 7-month-old Medical Marijuana Registry program.
The figure is well behind its projected pace of 700 applicants in thefirst 12 months, but registry administrator Gail Kelsey said a similar program in Oregon picked up steam after six months.

Like any war, the War on Drugs has its good soldiers — a varied bunch, coming from all walks of life and filling all ranks. They include eager volunteers, from the drug czars at the top of the command chain to the beat cops, Drug Enforcement Administration and Customs Service agents out in the field.
