Re: “520 Cannabis Medical Marijuana

It's 420, not 520.

And good move by Colo. Dept. of Public Safety, use the tax $$$ from legal marijuana sales to do good.

Re: “All about the cannabinoids

Since moving from Oregon to Nevada my health problems have been so much worse since not being able to get or have my medical herb. It sucks much. I've lost 50 lbs an feel I'm slowly dieing.

Re: “Smashing the Stigma

We just watched a man choked, tackled and ultimately died for selling loosies in NYC. Cigs are so valuable because of the greedy govt tax on them.

Just like the IRS, govt hates competition.

Re: “Smashing the Stigma

This is the way government has gone! We have policies derived strictly for income and nothing else Non-profit merely means the cost to dispense is all used up in operating costs. So why would a dispensary want to lower prices that would mean they had to come into line with other comparable business. Dispensary set themselves up entirely for income and Tax collection? Using the regulatory statutes that the citizens don't see or vote for to enforce with tax dollars their market. The whole idea of medical marijuana was to help those with debilitating ailments so now it is said then if you can afford the doctors and the state license then you can have some relief just as long as you pay the tax collector. I see the transient population growing as this is the way going for so many Americans. Ever since Kennedy by-partisan means nothing more than how the dollar is split and put the power of government behind collection. This is SAD a gravely ill society that rewards those that work in government will be taken care of at the expense of the sick and ailing. God Bless America

Re: “Smashing the Stigma

Blah, blah, blah. Why is it that people in the marijuana business (dispensary license) have to go to great lengths to explain why they are in the biz. Cannabis is benign, legal and does not ever cause any deaths by overdose. Get over it Tucson Weekly and stop with the endless stories about the pot stores being Mother Teresa in dispensing weed at a very high price. If patients could grow their own again (it's coming people) the cost of cannabis (now at 15-30 bucks per gram at the State licensed drug cartels) will go down to $3.00 a gram and that will be a good thing.

Re: “Edibles on the Eastside

Reading these posts is laughable on Weedmaps they are the most expensive in town. I will not go to these people I just don't trust them. I have MS and can barely afford my medication as it is let alone these wolves in medical scrubs clothing. MMJ laws was passed for the medical needs of sick people now they will go under the bus for tax revenue and capitalism to enrich the few at the expense of the sick tired and weary.

It is really very simple Aid for families and children. simply put Welfare. The monies congress allocate to this 68% goes to administrative costs wages medical ins, all employment burden the government pays its employees, facilities buildings, furniture, vehicles, conferences. so to sum it up for every dollar congress allocates 32cents go the needy. So after a individual works 20 years in this quagmire they can collect a retirement check to not work any more. So with dollar cost averaging over a period of 20 years the total burden on the tax payer is not meet and the monies given to help has been of little benefit because to society as it taxes one while it enriches another. Thats what MMJ has become how much tax per pound is it worth.

Re: “Oro Valley Values

Please these folks are living in another universe. Claiming to have the safest dispensary in the state... they are all safe. Not one dispensary has been jacked since they have opened. As for the "black market" these folks are delusional and charge $20 a gram for mid-level quality they are paying $10 a gram for which is the black market. They lucked out got a dispensary license and sling it like Mexican drug lords. It's Oro Valley where the biggest crime is stealing Metamucil from Walgreens... get over yourselves!

Re: “Oro Valley Values

Bradson much agreed the price structure that is against free trade and free market will instill criminal activity for decades. If the federal government changes the classification the MMJ industry will have to follow federal price fixing laws. that is the focus here change the federal classification

Re: “Oro Valley Values

"—that combined with the fact the shop has bulletproof glass, numerous security cameras, and several alarm panels."

This level of security will not be necessary as legalization spreads, prices drop dramatically and legislators finally understand that this is a non-toxic plant. Marijuana is only attractive to criminals because of the inflated prices the black market fetches and the legal market still imitates.

Re: “A Natural Choice

Have been going here since they opened, nice to see them getting some recognition. Frequent them because the location is convenient, but I also genuinely like the staff. Always had very pleasant, professional experiences often times make my medicine purchases the highlight of my day.
Best of luck to them in growing endeavor.

Re: “A Natural Choice

I have been to nature meds sometime ago. It is the closet to my home they were running some great specials. In the early time when they opened I frequented. One day one of my other freinds whom is also MS patient shared some hash she had gotten from a dispensary in Phx where she lived. On my travel to Nature Meds I asked if they stocked hash. At the time concentrates were not widely had in the dispensaries. As I asked Jacob came in from the side stating hash and all concentrates were illegal buying them or possessing them was a crime. His demanor was very confrontational also stating that the other dispensary were doing if selling were doing a crime. I came in for medical intrests I left for self preservation just dealing with this guy would cause PTSD. I wish them well in their growing efforts Tucson needs more quality growers. Another MS patient came to our support group with some medication they had purchased @ Nature Meds it had 2 seeds in the 1/8 they had purchased. A herrmie or whatever what is the lab testing on seeds. I do hope they keep trying I dont care for punch cards hourly specials it would be closer for me. However for me this is medication not a lifestyle. Phoenix is just up the road i can buy my 2 ounces at much better prices and i think better quality,r

Re: “Patient Focused

The dispensary route IS ridiculous! 80 small business lottery winners whose self-elevated ego's are way out of proportion with their purpose. Do dispensary owners really care? Only about how much money they are making off the patients. Most of the cannabis available in Arizona is low-mid grade sold at high prices and never tested for contaminants, grown poorly and harvested before it's time. The growers suck at what they do. The dispensaries make patients jump through hoops to buy cannabis and it's always about making money. The very people who promote the "I'm helping" campaign are wolves in sheeps clothing. They really don't care except how they can get more patient money. The green-rush is a money deal and dispensaries are all too happy to have AZDHS forgo any testing or quality standards. They can literally mow the grass on their own lawn and sell it to patients. No oversight what-so-ever -- and are any of the dispensary owners taking action to change that? The answer is of course NO, because they are only concerned about the profits...

Re: “Education and Certification

These ladies have helped me through crippling nerve condition. While I still have the ailment it is manageable to the degree of having a life back. In the early time of Arizoma MMJ they helped getting cultivation going, It was shame that they had to stop dispencing. I will get the card and go to these ladies a long time studing cannibus. From them for medical i would go to a care giver. If these ladies opened a dispensary I would be their first a most loyal customer. They have raised the bar on understanding and using cannibus In the Tucson valley.d

Re: “Patient Focused

Really not sure of what is meant by my comment? The story is full of misquotes false elaborations of history. Let me clue you in on hippie was about self reliance self care and living a healthy diet. Not making ones self a tax collection enity for the man. It was stated in the articule the huge amount of taxes paid for your service. Do you think for one minute that I want to pay a huge tax bill for underfunded and undisclose retirement obgligations on a plant that was given to us my nature? Dont state what the tax will pay school and roads history has shown us this has not been the case. ( maybe if smoke more I wont remember is that the idea here )

Make yourself available for what what is the point for talking with you, you have allready endorsed (censored) El Toro pooh pooh

Re: “Patient Focused

LOL really a great article, Did I read this right ? A paid propagandist right here.

"Our staff is educated on the product, and they're familiar with alternative health care methods," What does that mean? Homeopathic , Naturists, or even smoke lodge these all have a endorsing group that make standards and license them for distribution and study.

" marijuana also treats conditions like epilepsy, cancer, and a long list of other issues ". Post-traumatic stress" I have MS and a severe nerve damage I have been to these HMMM Non-Profit never do they have a consistent supply of a phenol cannabis that helps me. But they are happy to help me with pain. I have a care giver that grows for me and has my needs in stock all the time.

There are currently 60,000 medical marijuana patients in Arizona, but more than a half million people here with PTSD," said Ruben. "That could potentially be our biggest market. Well there you go Market driven economics corner the market and raise the price!
In this case AZDHS has no standard of testing standards, no pesticide standards, no labeling or packaging standards for safety from children. What they do have is inventory control of weight or trying and this is how Dispensaries and the Government want to regulate MMJ.

" People say marijuana makes you forget, but if you've shot 50 people, maybe forgetting that isn't a bad thing" I doubt less than >0001% of the eligible people for PTSB ran around the middle east in a HummVee with a 50 caliber ridiculous.

Ruben, who spent much of his working life as a medical administrator prescribing painkillers, Correct me if I am wrong Administrators don't prescribe licensed professionals do. List his license professional association.

""We do a lot of social promotion of hippie ideals," he said. "Eat good, clean air, green energy, take care of yourself. I was born in 1952 was around the bay area in 67 noting here with MMJ is ever or can be associated with "Hippie ideals" because you have what resembles a " IRON BUTTERFLY" album don't make it hippie

We have come along way in so many ways from the 60's we remember Kennedy raising the troops in Vietnam from 500 to 50,000 Johnson from 50,000 to 500,000 all in an effort to help.
This dispensary route is not what the voter wanted with MMJ like my hippie ideal we have a long way to go.
Legalize having used cannabis for over 42 years it should be decimalized legalize only after the Federal government changes it's classification. Only then can comprehensive peer structured study can come from this plant. This is just an effort to try and exploit and profit.
