Re: “Sentence Struggles

You can never trust what you read on the Internet, especially those sites with a particular slant to the right or left offering stories with little resemblance of the truth. The article I read pertained to crack users and even then the criteria is quite stringent. AND, it was very emphatic that this was about unfair convictions of minorities and, oh maybe some white guys would get pardons also.
I speak they way I do about the Internet because the reference to pardons by President Ford must have come from the Internet, possibly even Huffington Post because the reality is Gerald Ford pardoned Richard Nixon while Jimmy Carter pardoned the draft dodgers {at the insistence of the Canadian gov't so these boobs could return to US welfare instead of being a burden on the Canadian system}.
Which brings me to the crux of this article and the untruth of it. The federal indictment reads differently but more concisely regarding the laws broken, even by Ca standards.
Now, if this article had been meatier, let's say about a birth certificate then it would have been front & center on WND and the knuckle draggers over there would have taken their own shots at the president.
So, I guess I missed the point of your article in the process of looking for the truth.

Re: “Still Suppressing

Yee, Kavanagh, Polk, and Montgomery are all intolerant and rabid prohibitionists. Yee would give a clearer indication of her real intentions by burning books. You would think if these people were really worried about this plant that they would want to know more about it. This clearly is not the case. Yee is the head of the Arizona senate education committee. She does not support public education, instead she supports charter schools that profit from us. Marijuana prohibition does not come from a desire to keep people in Arizona safe. It's again about profits, the citizens be damned. Yee, Kavanagh, Polk, and Montgomery want to insure that private prisons are filled with Arizona marijuana users. In Arizona, right now, more people die from prescription drug overdoses than from traffic accidents. Rather than to attack a very real problem that actually kills people here, this group continues to attack Arizonans, including children, with life threatening diseases that are treated by medical marijuana. These disingenuous people use our own tax dollars to try to overturn voter passed initiatives and they spend considerable taxpayer money losing frivolous cases that could have been settled by reading the law and getting out a dictionary to learn the meaning of the words there. They would rather imprison Arizonans than to support our public schools that are the most poorly funded in the entire nation. Kavanagh recently tried to have the state give close to a million dollars to the private prisons that was not even asked for but we don't have money for our schools. This is how this group "empowers" people in Arizona. Do you really think that these actions are meant to help Arizonans or rather to enrich a few well positioned legislators? Marijuana has never killed by overdose.

Re: “Still Suppressing

Don't you get it J.M.? We got it when we got home from Vietnam. It was made perfectly clear to us.

Once the fighting is over.............AMERICA DON'T GIVE A SH*T.

Sadly, now a new generation of veterans will learn this lesson.

Re: “The Nearly Last Words of J.M. Smith

wouldn't be better for your 'paper" if you had at least one letter writer who disagreed arwith the tone and tenure of you editorial slant? Ok, I do. I noticed you had to stretch way back again, 6 years, to GUSH, CHEYNEY, and now four hours drive to Sheriff Wilmot over in Yuma who is an obvious POT HATER. i think that's lazy. Hell, man, you've got pot haters, right here in Tucson. Why not scandalize them?

Re: “One Small Step for Treatment

And what if it does, Fraser? It beats passing out Marinol and Sativex and other Big Pharma compounds that just don't work for people as well as compounds, tinctures, extracts and the dreaded marijuana itself.

Re: “One Small Step for Treatment

It sure is nice that we live in a state with a booming economy and little to no problem with unemployment, so we as taxpayers can continue to support worthless interpretations of clearly worded laws. Mr. Montgomery, Mr. Horne and Ms. Brewer are goldarn champions of what's right and good about Arizona. Imagine how stupid they'd look if the economy was in the toilet and we had hour-long lines just to apply for food stamps. I'm glad that's not the case.
Yay Republicans!

Re: “One Small Step for Treatment

Montgomery said there has been no decision whether to appeal, but he said Cooper may have to clarify whether the 2 1/2-ounce limit applies to the original plant material or what's left after the extraction process.

CHAPTER 28.1
ARIZONA MEDICAL MARIJUANA ACT
36-2801.Ā  Definitions

15. "USABLE MARIJUANA" MEANS THE DRIED FLOWERS OF THE MARIJUANA PLANT, AND ANY MIXTURE OR PREPARATION THEREOF, BUT DOES NOT INCLUDE THE SEEDS, STALKS AND ROOTS OF THE PLANT AND DOES NOT INCLUDE THE WEIGHT OF ANY NON-MARIJUANA INGREDIENTS COMBINED WITH MARIJUANA AND PREPARED FOR CONSUMPTION AS FOOD OR DRINK.

Montgomery's reading problem is not improving. He must have gone to school in Arizona where republicans don't fund education rather they fund private prisons. Perhaps Montgomery is just delusional in that he reads alright but sees only what he wants to see and not what is written. Let's take a wild guess that an extract is a preparation thereof and is defined as "usable marijuana" under the statute... It is time for the republicans to stop messing with what was a clearly written voter initiative. They show only disdain and disgust for the voters of this state. Perhaps the only way to get medical marijuana to those who can benefit is to legalize it and to regulate it like alcohol.

Re: “One Small Step for Treatment

It would be worth it to lie my way through the "consultation" to get an MMJ card just to meet one of those pretty lil nugs pictured in the advertisement for the Downtown Dispensary.

Animal style.

Re: “One Small Step for Treatment

Not one thing has changed because of this ruling. All the dispensaries in Tucson carry oils, medical edibles, kief, balms, suckers, popcorn. This is just Kabuki theatre for the amusement of the moronic masses out there that are uneducated about the hemp plant. As anyone that has read one book on the subject knows there is no such thing as medical marijuana as a botanical plant. It is Cannabis Sativa L. or basically the hemp plant domesticated to produce higher THC. Mr. Humble and the other idiot you talk about in this article (Bill Montgomery) are prohibitionists and if this was 1921 it would be alcohol they would be all hysterical about but of course it's the modern times and with our penchant for private prisons in this state, got to keep up the machine to throw people into the maw. Why don't you report the positive side of marijuana legalization (which is unknown to you for some reason in your columns) and talk about how Colorado is going to retroactively release 10,000 drug war prisoners very soon. You have not said one word about Tucson's most famous MMJ prisoner and that's Paula Huff. Surely you know the story but for some reason all I read is silence from the Tucson Weekly on this topic.

Re: “Basically Legal

I firmly believe that MJ should be legalized because it doesn't cause half the problems as alcohol, but when you begin your article with a lie based on a statement that was concocted by someone to disparage another person as an attack on someone you obviously don't like then anything you say becomes suspect and irrelevant.
