"... preferable that consumers purchase untaxed, unregulated and potentially unsafe marijuana from criminals?"
If you are one of the criminals, ABSOLUTELY!!!
I have no problem with medical marijuana having to follow the same rules that other drugs have to follow,but not special rules simply because the drug is marijuana. I realise that the promoters of medical marijuana so wanted a law that will pass, they caved in areas that they should not have.How would you like to get a special "pass" to buy you blood pressure meds,or perhaps some other med that you need? Why was it required to put medical marijuana in a position where only the "well funded" can seek the relief medical marijuana provides? I feel there are only a few (but they do exist) conditions where medical marijuana works better than the pill you would get in a "normal" setting but if the patients reports that this drug (the medical marijuana) is working well for him/her that should be the end of the discussion.Much is made today about perscription drug abuse,I have no reason to believe it is not a very big problem.Not wanting to re-hash an issue that has been decided(allowing the use of medical marijuana) but I think the reasoning behing medical marijuana needs to be looked at again.If you percieve your condition is better because of the medical marijuana you use,why not call it a win, simple as that?Many people get into trouble with their perscriptions because they do not follow the perscription as written.If it does not work right away they take another pill or perhaps add alcohol to the mix.If it is working, some think that taking another pill will make it work even better,both scenearios are very dangerous.You are not going to stop breathing,or end up with no heartbeat due to medical marijuana.Sure if you mix it with alcohol,pass out on your back you stand a chance of vomiting and drownding in you own vomit.Please do not drive if you take pills,use medical marijuana,or drink.Society will come down hard and without mercy if you have a car accident and hurt someone while you are impaired.If your condition is bad enough your Doctor can help you get Sun Van rides very cheap.There is no excuse to driving either impaired,distracted,or just plain tired.In closing,I ask that medical marijuana be treated fairly.I believe manly long running family arguments revolve around marijuana use.If the anti-marijuana party agrees that marijuana is OK in a medical setting I believe they think they will suffer some sort of embarassment within the family for being so strongly opposed to marijuana for so many years.Remember the goal is to help people feel better and stop the overdoses from drugs that will cause your death if the perscription instructions are not followed
Good to know Cunningham will "handle" a problem drunk. If he would just modify that hairstyle of his it would go a long way to demonstrating his own recovery.
Would it be ok if she were a younger hippie chick???
Ms. Nielsen has a unique way of expressing herself. The "problem" with the letter is that it's not about a particular topic but an exercise in free association.
And she's an older hippie chick.
I'm surprised that you would run a perfectly legible and intelligible piece with the heading "we don't know what this is about but we are running it anyway"--it just seems so disrespectful! I thought that letters to the editor were OUR chance, as readers, to express ourselves and to opine, not yours. You have the whole newspaper to get your point of view across. If you are going to be so frankly rude about someone's letter, simply don't print it. But printing it and then ridiculing the person who wrote it (especially when its not rocket science to figure out what its about-) seems really unnecessary. All of that aside, I take it as a perfectly reasonable story about someone crashing back to Earth, with all of the human idiots contained thereon, after happily composing "lets make it better" letters in her head. Full disclosure: I know this woman, brilliant, creative and open-minded, and I am a dog owner who likes her dogs off leash. So I think I truly DO know what this letter is about. Notwithstanding, I make it a point to be respectful of others' preferences when it comes to my dogs. AND I agree that when it comes to the meek inheriting the earth, I won't be in that number. An apology from you would be nice, but some interest and a desire to understand what is written would be even nicer.
And I'm going to cut this flame war off before it gets going any further. Goodnight, everybody!
Heroes don't exist in a city without villains.
The urban myth-making in the original letter and the above comments never rises above your garden variety faceless internet slander. As such they do not warrant response, but it should be pointed out that these allegations were all sourced from friends of friends of friends and, even better, "police". I think that about says it all.
Dude, I'm not an idiot. I am a hip hop fan. YOU PHYSICALLY ASSAULTED A WOMAN. I know what it means. You're just making everything a lot worse for yourself now. Stop it and 'fess up. You got called on your bullshit.
See if you guys were "hip-hop fans" maybe you wouldn't be confused see "hitting girls" is slang terminology for "having sexual intercourse with girls," consentual of course, like "Yeah I hit that girl." haha man almost guys almost.
Well said, Ms. Gilmer. I don't know the man or his music, but anyone who can discuss his past in this way isn't deserving of much respect, particularly after mentioning his attorney keeping him out of jail, which says a lot about his character. I'm not a hip hop fan either, but someone who uses slander and speaks about condoning violence of any sort isn't the type of person I think should be on the cover of our city's own magazine.
I heard about it too because I used to work at congress and the whole staff was upset that night. Everyone knows you got kicked out of that place dude. I cant believe you hit girls and then say you have no regrets. I was really surprised to see you on the cover because of the fact Ive never heard your music, Ive only heard of the messed up stuff youve done, so I refuse to listen to assholes. Dont try to call everyone liars when its clear youre the only liar in this situation.
Haha ok you're insanely delusional
EVERYONE has heard about you hitting girls and asking about raping them at Hotel Congress last year and then I SAW YOU MAKE your friend hit a security guy before they kicked you out. Glad someone the community actually respects can call you out on your bullshit. A ton of us saw you do it, so don't act like you suddenly forget your a violent egomaniac.
Not only were witnesses present during this account, I first heard about it from police officers, not hearsay. I'm sorry being held accountable seems to be so difficult for you, but assaulting women and using the r-word to them makes YOU the bully. Calling them "fucked-up people" just hurts your case even more. You need to be honest about your past AND answerable for your wrongdoings. Simply forgetting the atrocious things you've done, as appears the current case, is not an option.
Was this really the best lie you pulled from the blind raffle out the alleged slanders hat?
Man hopefully next time you mean to discredit me with fake ass bullshit it's a little more ambitious like "Mr. Camacho set fire to a school bus filled with nuns holding newborn babies" or at least make it like six women instead of just two.
My criminal record is public for anyone to see & your allegations aren't on it friendo.
Jan Brewer line was kinda funny tho, I mean, I guess since Hitler was in the bathroom or too busy to make your analogy.
The dislike(s) above prove(s) that, even in this day and age, being thuggish is in vogue. Lord help us all.
I couldn't have put it in words better myself.
As a runner I have been bitten on numerous occasions by "sweet dogs". I carried mace for years and have used it on both the dog and owner. This has happened in Mich, Cali, AZ, NY, NM and OH. Each and every incident ended with police responding because the dog walker thought I was at fault, and each and every time the police sided with me and twice issued citations to the dog owner. People who do not follow the rules of common decency with their dogs don't deserve them.
