Hey Francis, it's your responsibility as a voter to do your own research on who supports prop. 205 and who does not, use the internet!
Kettle, meet pot. Pun intended :-)
Legalizing marijuana will destroy the "fabric/future of our democracy"? Money in politics is destroying the fabric of our democracy-- just look at the big bucks big pharma is putting up against a plant that never killed anyone.
Hey Wrong, Again:
Did you get your Triple K buddies to give you upvotes?
I'm pretty sure you've never received that many likes...ever. Whether it be online or IRL.
So that Voters can be adequately informed of the efforts to legalize the use of Marijuana for Recreational Purposes in Arizona (Prop 205: The Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act), a list of Politicians and Educators who support this effort here in Tucson/Pima County should be published as well!!; including City/County Officials, School Board Members, and School/College/University Administrative Officials.

Napier was one of only two republicans on my ballot.
The endorsement of Bill Staples by 'The Weekly' is a sham. The grossly oversimplified explanation of what the assessor does is insulting and inaccurate. Had it done actual research, it would be endorsing Droubie.
I would like to ask Mark Napier;
With the possibility of prop 205 do you see Joe Arpaio or one of the other sheriff being appointed to head the board of Department of License and controls by Gov. Ducey ?
What is his opinion of prop 205?

So what about all the rest of the people that are up for election? You can't just leave us hanging like that! Like county officials, county attorney, county recorder county assessor, county superintendent of schools and justices of The Supreme Court and judges of The superior court. Where is some information about them? I don't wanna just vote for somebody based on their political affiliation, it's nice to know some of the things they've done. If there's a website or something you could direct me to that be great. On a separate note how come they never let us know about the judges political affiliation? Thanks, Kris
When I was running for Assessor in the primary against Bill Staples, the Tucson Weekly interviewed me and we discussed many of the issues of what was going wrong in that office - the needless and costly litigation, the inadequate systems for valuing commercial property and mostly the horrible treatment of taxpayers who exercise their right to appeal. Since the primary I have even uncovered evidence that Bill Staples fraudulently issued notices of proposed corrections so he could avail himself of another opportunity to discriminate against a commercial taxpayer in court. If he is re-lected I seriously doubt he'll complete another term for all the wrong doing in his office.
Does the County School Superintendent have any authority to try to correct the wrongs at TUSD?
You endorsed for Assessor, but not for County School Superintendent? What gives?
The majority on the TUSD Board must be broken up and replaced with independent thinkers. There are several qualified candidates. None of the incumbents should be re-elected.
What, no endorsement for the only candidate for County Attorney who supports the legalization of marijuana, a living minimum wage, and supports Mark Napier for Sheriff? (that'd be me) Maybe next time...?
WRONG on 2 of 3 TUSD recommendations.
I am going to respectfully disagree with your Assessor endorsement. Appeals skyrocketed durring the recessive period because he did NOT do a great job. Having your value "close"to your neighbor? Excuse me? And are we completely going to ignore the fact that he has been in court with Raytheon 5 times? Took the Tucson Botanical Gardens all the way to the Arizona Supreme Court over their exemption because of a gift shop (and lost)and just last month cost the tax payer $94,000 over an $15,800 exemption wrongfully denied to Primavera Foundation?
Why would you endorse that behavior?
Suzanne Droubie is the right choice for Assessor.
Readers of the Weekly are too smart to support a Government-mandated minimum wage (MW). Think about it: The MW always costs jobs and raises prices for the poorest among us.
Businesses have a break even point; they must make a profit or why bother. Knowing that fact, ask yourself who will pay for the wage increases? Higher prices and/or fewer workers will make up the difference for many Tucson businesses' bottom line.
Setting aside the canard of "greedy business" any Government mandated minimum wage will cost Tucson jobs and/or raise prices. Also, these lost jobs are from the lowest end of the economy and the men and women affected are those most in need or just starting out.
Government should butt the Hell out of the private sector economy.
Wrong, Again's bullshit, not so nice.
And then he has to post it twice!
About as welcome as head lice.
Re: Francis Saitta,
"The younger generation" has had no problem getting marijuana on the street for a couple of generations now. The destigmatization of the drug that will come with decriminalization will have the effect of removing some of the allure with time, and it will absolutely remove a lot of the risk associated with buying illegal drugs.
I'm not sure why the current potency of the drug is used as an argument against decriminalization; there is still no danger of overdose death or injury, or physical dependence.
Relative to alcohol and opiod painkillers, marijuana is very safe.
