Re: “Pre-rolled Legislation

So some members of our legislature are wanting to make it harder for the citizen to override political incompetence. Other members (Thorpe?) want to hobble student voters. This is a shameful way to govern. I personally wouldn't vote democrat, but my republican vote should not be considered guaranteed...

Re: “Pre-rolled Legislation

Thanks Nick Meyers , for a insight to attempts of forces to control Marijuana.

I believe the legislature will act on marijuana before the next legislative session when the roll of the initiative gains steam.

It is my opinion the biggest reason for the failure of 205. Was a new independent department. A new department that had tax, police, court, license powers away from the power of the legislature.

This Gorilla of a monstrous appetite with wanting a new family to feed. This department would have used the existing Felony laws as a tool.

Anyone would have to be just plain blind to think this Department would not have folded itself into each county attorneys use to tax and run the industry. It had to if they wanted police power to prosecute for felonies. DUH!

Prop 205 was NOTHING at all like how other states have legalized marijuana. This is the lie that wants to perpetuate that it was about legalization. Prop 205 was about retail market control and enforcement of the market PERIOD. MONEY !

There were so many misleading and blatant lies slick willy salesmen. If you quarried anyone of the dispensaries owner or principals of 205 how it was going to work it was always left as TBD (to be determined) so essentially nobody really knew what they were voting for.

Even that 6 plant carrot dangled was a joke. Anyone would ask how was that going to work license? inspection? sign affidavit, gain plant material, report output, buy pre tax clones? All of this was TBD that is the failure of 205 collectively.
