FROM: COLORADO MMJ PATIENTS/CAREGIVERS TO: THE COLORADO STATE MMJ REGISTRY We, the undersigned, wish to express our thoughts and concerns related to the upcoming new guidelines, with much emphasis on the proposed disasterous 'five patient limit' for caregivers. If this recommendation is enforced, it will not only hurt both new patients who are merely seeking for a legal source for their necessitated, physician-recommended medicine, all of the while suddenly leaving existing patients without their legal caregiver anymore, or someone to act in that capacity for them. This leaves many patients sadly forced to dangerously resort to acquiring their medicine by having to deal with the criminal elements typically associated by those in the black market. More often then not, a patient simply goes without their medicine, for months at a time in many cases, causing them to endure needless pain, the very reason that the MMJ Registry exists and thus defeating it's originally intended purpose to help people. Without their caregivers either procuring medicine from other caregivers, or growing it for the patient, an mmj patient simply does not get their mandatorily required herbal medicine and is forced to unwillingly go back to using prescription narcotics or worse yet, a patient may feel so cornered from their pain that they resort to using the more readily life-draining poison alcohol, which kills and breaks up so many families. Whatever they can get their hands on, to get even just a minor reprieve from their illness. Colorado should allow those with the ability to function (with kudos passed out to them) as competent legal grower's to do so and to do it in a manner which best provisions those in need. We certainly should not place any type of cap, almost penalizing, in a sense, the grower's skills at providing for as many as they do. Summarily, we politely request that the proposed changes and/or modifications of the five-patient maximum be re-examined and not an issue to be taken lightly as its effects will be felt in a ripple-like fashion radiating negatively throughout the state. In closing, we wish to thank you for your time and attention to this matter. -Colorado MMJ Patients/Caregivers
