What needs to change is AZDHS needs to come into line with costs to enroll this should not be a revenue enhancer and market access limiter. REALISTIC PRICING !
it is good to see this open opinion on MMJ. I see a great paradox here between quality of life and market driven revenue. With the AZ MMJ law passed gave some great protections to the Patient that needs this kind of medication. To legalize it these would be gone the enforcement now would be on home growers and a civil action taken by the government and possible liens and levies against property for growing your own. It seems unfathomable to try and build a business and on a weed. It can and will grow anywhere and does. Over the years I have witnessed urban grows and micro grows that yield fantastic quality. Having worked in the commercial Landscape business and toured many a nursery the Imperial valley can turn out tons a month plenty of water and skilled labor for that. Cannabis is similar to Alfalfa and cotton. In Yuma they get 4 cuttings a year and the enhanced UVB from the latitude grow a better product. So to surmise do you want the police to go from protecting to tax collection? To invest so much to have fantastically skilled commercial grow operations with all facilities in place? To lose the protection given under the law to MMJ patients? To pursue strong market driven stains rather than strains related to MMJ ? One question to you Brad as you have worked in the MMJ business dispensary what training did they give and maintain to the employees on how different strains and pheno affect different medical ailments?
As a note when the federal government changes the classification the Indian reservations when there is no SS tax or state tax low investment cost and great land. Right now it is possible to buy over the internet from state's that recognize other states MMJ patient cards. and the post office in the trouble they are in don't want to police that.
There is a symbiotic relationship between these dispensaries and the MMJ patient this ridiculous claim of compassion care and nonprofit where you can grow the cost of a new Hyundai on 60 days. Dispensaries just don't realize the whole industry is a house of cards they too need the MMJ laws. Student, Veteran, Senior, happy hour, gameday, specials, bonus points, why cant there be honest pricing? The cost to produce is obvious inflate the cost and entice with discounts very discouraging for MMJ patients such as myself and I know hundreds to support these dispensaries. Result less people signing up for it they are killing their own. When asked by other in my support groups if it is worth while to obtain this license and go to dispensaries. I tell them get the license for protection stay with the support group there options to getting it.
