Re: “In Defense of Marijuana

In case 1 and 2, The Court denied Kyle's rights to the AMMA with out ever even charging him with a violation of the AMMA. An Appellate Court Judge Ruled in some case, that if you violate the AMMA in any way, you are no longer covered by it.
The Judge Violated the Voters Rights in this Ruling. "No where in the AMMA" is that even insinuated.
In case 1 he was sentenced to 2 years. An Appeal has been filed.
Case 2 he was sentenced to 4 years. A Clemency Motion has been filed and approved. the Application was also filed.
Kalvin Got Probation.

Re: “Is Arizona the Next State to Legalize Recreational Marijuana?

People just dont get it this is NOT about marijuana this is about money and control. Why do the People of Arizona need a special department to control this when all these other state fold it into the existing departments. Why is Arizona so special that it needs to rebuild the taxiation police judicial medical basically the whole of state goverment to sell marijuana?

The terms being used here Democrate Republican Progressive Conseratve is just a misnomer to confuse and isolate. The whole dynamic of the social fabric is just a market manifested ideology there is no button here. I fine myself now in what some call the golden years. In those years I have learned what stick to gwab and more important what end.

This is just a giant plea bargain and the result if you cant afford to pay tribute? (FU)

This is awesome! My child was recently treated in Colorado with some CBD therapy for seizures. We stayed at a Bud and Breakfast in Boulder Colorado..

Re: “Weed TV

I've watched the show. It is interesting to watch Andavolu struggle with the downsides of treating kids, of various ages, with cannabis, versus the fact that it is obviously beneficial for them in treating their conditions (such as certain cancers and seizure disorders). He doesn't pretend that it is an easy decision, nor do the parents of the kids involved.

Real life. What a concept.

Re: “Is Arizona the Next State to Legalize Recreational Marijuana?

It is a false presumption thinking that conservatives would be against legalization. I have always been a conservative. A true conservative is for less government in our lives. I as many of my friends and family understand that regulating Marijuana like alcohol makes sense and has many benefits in doing so. Power to the people I say.

Re: “Marijuana in Sports

According to Anastasia, the healing power of plants -edible and medicinal- is enhanced tremendously by planting your own; and personalizing the effects by holding some seeds of each type in your mouth (under the tongue) for at least 9 minutes. This transfers your DNA information to the plants so that they can adapt to your needs. Then plant your own food and meds and CARE for them; and ground your feet into the garden soil to share more info with your plants.

Re: “Is Arizona the Next State to Legalize Recreational Marijuana?

A siimple argument against this legalization. This proposal limits the supply and puts medical of those who need it in competion with the Recreational NAPA Valley high end shelf. So why would a company grow for the least amount of return? Simple if you made matches controlled who made them and the quanity . Why make a 100 matches that costs $0.10 >> when you can make 10 charge $1.00 and the cost to make a match is cheaper, less area, less labor, less taxes being paid less contributions in labor burden. Would it not be wiser to change the criminal code rather than give the farm?

I mean really if those that think they can change it later. look at the criminal code and how it is administered diffrently in counties. Change it later yea right we have a Saul Goodman giving legal advise for his bussniess intrests DUH. And that is the same system they want to maintain just have a layer before. like the Department of Transportation. Really does Marijuana warrant the importance of a department like the Department of Transportation? Like the Department of Revenue? The Deparmentof Agriculture? The Department of Public safety? Department of Health Science? I just dont understand why we need a nother department for Marijuana>>>>> the realty is this is not about simple posession this is about a huge control grab state wide. A new department that for the next decade will be paying legal fees to just validate it existance. That is alot up in smoke that could go to mandated study for the positive effects. Monies that could go to education, Monies that would put more disposal cash in family that have a dependent one. Monies in a family spent on the betterment of children.

I for one dont care about the vap places smoke shops. I dont care about Paradise Valley wanting state protection to keep out what they consider problems, It's their city their problem. I dont care if Douglas has to many dispensaries it Douglas problem. What I do care about is in one county prosecuted simple posession diffrently than the other, and this is the solution to prosectural discression misconduct ? I guess if I dont believe this I am classified as an idiot plagued with idiocy

Re: “Is Arizona the Next State to Legalize Recreational Marijuana?

Anyone that is a true advocate has to support both initiatives. AZFMR's is great and I hope it makes it to the ballot. But if it doesn't that's no reason not support MPP. YES it does support home grow. That's good enough for me.

Re: “Is Arizona the Next State to Legalize Recreational Marijuana?

Just vote/sign for Safer AZ instead of MPP. Seriously, our last correspondent was at least in the know that there were competing organizations in the game, or is there a conflict of interest in favor of MPP here? I am in full agreement that the MPP is all for "Big Weed" we need big weed like big banks, big ag, and big pharma. No thanks. Still, from a justice standpoint, I will vote yes on whatever makes it to the ballot. Let's just hope it's MPP's competition instead.

Re: “Is Arizona the Next State to Legalize Recreational Marijuana?

Voting against legalization because it isn't the perfect bill is idiocy. You might as well cut off your nose to spite your face. It is embarrassing how a handful of activist loons continue to fight the very cause they supposedly support. Hopefully we can beat these idiots back the same way they had to beat them back in Oregon, Colorado, and Washington. These idiots won't be satisfied, ever. The crap they support will never pass, and legalization will never move forward. Like children with pie in the sky fantasies, grow up for God's sake.

Re: “Is Arizona the Next State to Legalize Recreational Marijuana?

MPP's Initiative does NOT allow home growing..

MPP's Initiative only guarantees that the existing MEDICAL Marijuana Dispensary owners will get any of the new Recreational Marijuana business licenses.

NO OLIGOPOLY, NO THANK YOU!

Allowing the Medical Marijuana Dispensaries to monopolize the Arizona Marijuana Market is bad for both Marijuana consumers AND for people who want to get a Marijuana business license!!

AZFMR's Initiative does NOT allow people to "stand on the corner and sell weed", as Kathy claims.

However, AZFMR's Initiative DOES allow anyone who wants to sell marijuana to obtain a Recreational Marijuana Retailer License. Even people who don't own a Medical Marijuana Dispensary can get a Recreational Marijuana Retailer license in AZFMR's Initiative.

MPP believes that the guy who has been selling Marijuana illegally for the past 15 years should be thrown in PRISON.

AZFMR believes that the guy who has been selling Marijuana illegally for the past 15 years should GET A MARIJUANA BUSINESS LICENSE.

How can we expect the BLACK MARKET to end if we ONLY allow the Medical Marijuana Dispensaries to obtain the Recreational Marijuana Business licenses?!?!?

When people want to sell Marijuana, but they are unable to get a Marijuana retailer License under MPP's Initiative, they will continue to sell Marijuana illegally. MPP's Initiative literally does LESS THAN NOTHING to eliminate the black market activity.

When you consider that MPP's Initiative makes ANY black market activity a FELONY, it becomes quite clear that MPP's Initiative ONLY protects the Medical Marijuana Dispensaries.

MPP's Initiative offers NOTHING for the Marijuana Consumers and for people who want to obtain a Recreational Marijuana business license.

Please consider reading both of the Initiatives if you want a better understanding of what each Initiative actually does.

Re: “Is Arizona the Next State to Legalize Recreational Marijuana?

It's a sham people wouldn't support the only viable chance of legalization and support mpp. It allows home grow, new licenses and more cultivation. Since it wouldn't allow you to stand on the corner and sell some people don't like it. They're crazy. Arizona will never support expansive legalization. Do they not understand the electorate?!!!! They'd rather cry, go home and continue to send people to jail and wait for the nonexistent future where their pie in sky ballot proposal passes. It won't. Ever. Who would have thought the "free weed" crowd is for continuing to send people to jail. Pass it and then work to fix it. The fight always continues.
