Unfortunately that is not the case for some!

I realize that others have greater ambition, Shag. I get that. OTOH, changes here in CO haven't made it worse for them, at all. I can appreciate wanting more & being disappointed with progress so far, but only to a point, the point where that ambition blinds them to how much better this is for the vast majority.
I just try to make the best of it. I believe that this is just the start, that people much younger than myself will experience even greater positive change over the next decade. It's a good start, granting users & personal growers the respect they deserve.
One of the big problems for all the old players- the growers, the MMJ shops, the black market dealers & importers- is keeping the money in it. None of those people really want weed to be cheap & plentiful at all because it'll put them out of business.
In that, I'm more of a subversive than most. I want weed growing to move outdoors where it belongs. First into backyards, then into commercial fields. I want it to look like the wine industry, with the marijuana equivalents of cheap tokay, connoisseur grade vintage chardonnay & everything in between available to everybody. I want to be able to buy clones at the garden center for the same price as petunia clones, cannabis seeds off the rack right next to the cucumber seeds.
I want indoor growing under lights to become a quaint relic of the past, something obviously not in the interests of those who would express the greatest unhappiness with the changes in CO at all.
We have a long way to go to get there, but CO has made a helluva better start at it than anybody else. I'm very lucky indeed to be a part of it, particularly considered where we started 50 years ago.
