*Smoking* Cannabis has controlled my asthma since 1968. Look up the TASHKIN STUDY and stop worrying about it. Seriously.
And another thing...if it's any relief, I recommend firing it up with a magnifying glass. Bypasses all that butane taste so you get a more 'natural' flavor. Fair warning though, use welders goggles when you do it or you'll blind yourself for 45 minutes. 3 pairs of sunglasses all on at once will do in a pinch.
Big of you to admit that smoking anything, in and of itself, is detrimental. It's a weed, it's mother nature, naturally grown blah blah blah. It's all natural right up until the time a human jams it into a metal bowl and lights it on fire with a butane lighter and then inhales the combustion.
Like homosexuality, it's all natural right up until what they do with it next.
A little to pricey for my liken.
Get a job pot heads!
its time to put an end to this b.s. and leagleize mj! stand up people and let your voices be heard! vote out anyone in the way!
cannabis is an herb
Why is it ridiculous to ask that judges and legislators meet the same requirements as drivers. Perhaps if they did we'd have fewer ridiculous laws, or at least the laws passed might get read first.
I guess the lesson here, at least until the law is changed, is not to drive like an idiot if you use cannabis. Then the police will have no reason to stop you in the first place.
(A) I don't know the wording of the Michigan MMJ laws, but from J.M.'s description it sounds like the collectives bought and sold MMJ -- a QP may have "donated" it to the collective for a small con$$$ideration, and the collective then "donated" it to another QP for a small con$$$ideration, but once the MMJ left QP A's hands who owned it? The collective, right? Only when the collective "donates" the MMJ to QP B is its ownership also transferred. This seems to be a bit more sticky "hands-on" than simply providing space, Swap Meet style, wherein QPs pay a vendor booth fee and then argue and barter amongst themselves with no middlemen. Again, I don't know the details of the Michigan situation so perhaps my conclusion is errantly drawn.
(B) Allan Sobol and AZDHS/ State of AZ settled the "2801 Club" suit; no judgment was issued in that case, leaving the question about the legality of collectives/ clubs unanswered. Did someone else pick up the gauntlet and file a new suit? With dispensaries coming available and QPs kvetching about prices, questions about other options should probably be settled sooner rather than later.
There are great differences in the text of the laws of the two states, so any real analysis would have to consider those.
I'd say the man who said that was tooting his lunch when he said it
The only reason to keep MJ illegal is to support police budgets and to support Mexico.
The late Senator D. P. Moynihan(D-MA) once said "You're entitled to your own opinion, but not your own facts." Seems to be apt in the cannabis debate. There are literally hundreds to thousands of conflicting studies regarding the positive and/or negative aspects of cannabis. The outcomes have been cherry picked by the interested parties to support which ever belief they hold. Too bad there isn't an unbiased study out there that will portray the truth.
Check all the research before you say something is a fact.

As of Friday, HCR2003 hasn't gone to first read. I think the legislaturd still has three weeks to dump bills in the hopper. Not sure if it hasn't gone because there's no support for it or because "they" are still working out how to drive their base to the ballot box en masse (to make sure it fails this time) and will squeak it through before deadline.
@MsChiMimi 20130131 13:26 -- agree with your calling out Green Halo's "I was for collectives before I was against them" stance, not too keen on the ad hominem attacks though.
@kdhaslett 20130131 17:06 -- " ... this is about patients for most of us, while for others the only green that matters is in the till." There, fixed it for you.
@kdhaslett 20130201 11:43 -- generally agree with you on solidarity and a "He may be a sonovabitch, but he's OUR sonovabitch" wagon-circling may be helpful between now and November, but will it do help or harm in the long run? There are right ways and wrong ways to win an election.
In regards to Laurie Roberts front page column.
About a month ago she featured a piece on how the med marijuana scene was being abused. It noted some news articles that said teens were getting marijuana from med sources. It was also written at a time when Mr. Kavanagh publicized he was going to introduce a bill so we could re vote on 203. The tone of the piece was negative in nature towards our whole medical marijuana scene. Now this turn around.
So if you are a well healed , educated, former judge, prosecutor.....the list goes on ...I see him walking a foot off the ground... and not a unidentified blue jean and tee shirt wearing kinda kid....them maybe he could be right! Maybe there is some merit to cannabis being a healing plant. Why the turn around Ms. Roberts? (sorry, but this bugs the hell outa me).
Which brings me to this current discussion. What is the truth? Isn't there enough of the pie to go around? Mr. Sobel claims to be against the 25 mile rule. Easy to say since we know it will take an act of god to get it reversed. Did he really try to encourage someone to go and bust the coops? I hope not. As someone else said "let the people decide".
Green Halo spent alot of money getting this off the ground, we voted for it, I am for seeing it go forward. BUT there is alot of compassion going on out here right now. Lots of people are using cannabis to help with their conditions and getting it from their fellow patients and caregivers. Many give it for free. I gave it to my friend who just died of cancer. His wife had to blow it in his face at the end to help him get relief. This ain't a game. Please keep him in mind when you price fix the product in your little corner of the kingdom.
If you have any questions or doubts about the importance of the MMJ "improve/don't repeal" campaign you need only look to Laurie Roberts front page column in the AZ Republic Saturday. We met with Laurie in Phoenix ten days ago at Glendale's Arizona Organix Dispensary and had a wonderful opportunity to discuss the value of medical cannabis and the needs of our patients with her. The story she wrote is very compelling. Reprints will be available at The Green Halo, and a link is posted on The Green Halo's Facebook page.
