Re: “Dispensary Distribution

Nothing starts till the feds change the denotation of the plant period.

This has gone beyond a state's issue it's a Federal issue. regardless of this years political climate. There are so many hands out wanting tribute to go one way or the other it is sickening.

Proponents and opponents alike are showing the lack of integrity for a fair justice system, a fair administration system.

The root cause of addictive behavior or citizens. We as a whole believe we can control addictive behavior. Medicate if possible, incarcerate when necessary, profile for protection, assemble a enforcement of all addictive behavior. This has been a failure.

To make this work and some are of the conclusive ideals that we license addictive behavior it will pay for and administer itself.

So with this type of progressive thinking which has been tried for millenniums it's not new. 2500 year old shipwrecks have been found in the Mediterranean off of Greece, the flacks fill with Hash oil.

These early merchants the Carthaginians were the brokers of all products made from the Indica plant. Valuable fine oil, fabrics, hemp weavings.

To protect their market they enlisted a police protection force. These were called Hashins. They became so brutal that the name became over time through all the language transformations to assassin and the leaders of those groups established markets came up with name dialects Hussein.

That is our future if we make a market for so many to profit from. the idea of controlling behavior. Yea it has not worked for thousands it's been tried. Just wait for the shit storm of troopers rouge courts and no government oversight. We can call this new Department Of Marijuana License and Controls, assassins in waiting just a matter of time.

Re: “Dispensary Distribution

The "Medical Marijuana Program" in Arizona is a Big-Money-Making SCAM supported by the Marijuana Drug Industry and their Supporters in the Arizona Legislature!

Marijuana use for Medical purpose should be supported by Scientific evidence, including Clinical Trials, and regulated by the FDA; closely monitored by the tending Physician and State Department of Health."Medical Marijuana" should be available by Prescription only (in a Pharmacy) issued by a License Physician.

Re: “Presidential Potential

None read the initiative where it states that the

It is this department that will issue the tag from a city jees'
In obtaining a plant clone a person will sign an agreement that the vendor supplies and returns to the department of Marijuana License and Controls the form maybe an application waiting for confirmation to allow the sale .

Vendor that will need a special license to sell plant clone as well. A piece of paper no unlike a hunting license. This will be an agreement with the purchaser and the State Department of Marijuana License and Controls.

This document that a purchaser signs is an agreement that you dont live in a restricted area ie; cities, won't have children under 21 in the residence. Won't clone sell or transfer any of the product purchased for propagation. Only certain STRAINS WILL BE ALLOWED FOR RETAIL, LEAVING THE RETAILER AND GROWER WITH STRONGER PRODUCTS. In this agreement you will give up all civil and criminal rights when signing. Open the door for the new LEO to kick down the door to check compliance just just signed away your rights if you want to grow 6 plants

Would be best to do it illegally rather than sign an agreement. Even Montgomery in his debate stated what this would change in enforcement and can't believe some would be so blind to vote for this. so if prop 205 passes dont sign an agreement to grow or you just fucked yourself got it

Re: “Dispensary Distribution

Just whom do you think was the originator of all the legalize of this travesty of 205? get a clue dummy it was LEO.

There is more legalize back doors called "Notwithstanding" which means basically if anything was in place before.

So if you didn't like what was going on before you definitely won't like this.
But hey As long as I got a Bob Marley, Tye Dyed, Birkenstock, tattooed, body pierced liberal, rap, new world order concert to go all is well. I can vap, concentrate, dab, to my heart's delight screw the medically needy. This is progressive stone and tax hey baby.

How's that for asking for consideration when first I need to state whom I want their endorsement. And now let's hear what a republican is ( the most often defined here) and then there is a libertarian. Which slaps the core of both so one want that, It hurts to find I was damaging to myself looking for the boogie man in politics.

Re: “Dispensary Distribution

If funding is the issue why won't MPP disclose whom their contributors are ? The MPP that got Arizona the mmj law the whole entire board has been replaced. Now Big money industry replaced the entire board. Everyone that sits on the board are from big industry. According Dan Riffle the previous founder and Director of MPP tell the story how big money has taken over MPP.
here is a interview with Dan Riffle in Business Weekly.

The real scary part of all of this is the ignorance and hate. the propels one view big business LMFAO
Which big business are you talking about the one that sets up a police force and court to sell and enforce making money off of pot stating monies from heaven are going to fall for good things ? You been smoking that spice shit huh. yea it will still be illegal.

Re: “Dispensary Distribution

Look at the funding for the "No on 205" advertisements. What a basket of deplorables. I say for for 205, just to upset the big money boys.

Re: “Dispensary Distribution

lets look at 205 we can do whatever we want. Since it is a state special amendment to the state constitution.

let's ask the legislature to step and recognize changes in the state statutes let add them as a subcategory with special address and concerns, to this new found department

What cant have your cake an eat it too. They should not have special state protections with out following state commerce. So they are a special and deserve special legislation let's give it to them

They can't incorporate, Strictly sole proprietors. No special protections such as trusts, holding entities and out of state ownership.
All properties holdings and license will be under Arizona law. Since it is federally illegal Arizona will not recognize any entity or person that are not full time residence of Arizona.
All license and property holders must be citizens of the US. Full disclosure of all principal parties of those not more than 25% can be out of state residence or non US citizen.
One person cannot own more than one dispensary and can not be sold to another dispensary agent or parties must be sold on random lottery.

I mean really these guys are not in it for the care and help. It is pure greed at this point. They have allowed ambiguous terms like
"NOT WITH STANDING" to allow Ducey's Administrator to decide what in Arizona prevails.
I say vote no on 205 allowing for distribution does not allow for a whole rewrite of right to the constitution that only changes enforcement and administrative powers. while increasing the criminal and civil penalties.

Re: “Dispensary Distribution

Get a clue it is the "BLACK MARKET" no federal protections and a rouge government to banking and distribution system this is the foundation of redistributed "Black Markets"

We see now with the sheriff's department see huge pile of cash and it is up to administrators to distribute. The only reason to have this Marijuana regulatory department is to gather and distribute monies while protecting an exclusive industry/government.

What is Marijuana Department of license and controls. what it will be is it's own government insulated by the AZ constitution and ratified by the voter. It will have basically no oversight in accounting or procedures.

With prop 205 we will soon call Juarez our sister city. I think the producers are putting additives into the pot to dummify the user into this. Since there is no testing standards no oversight these guys are running a muck.

Re: “Presidential Potential

Growing plants for personal use should be anonymous.

There should be no reason to register a plant unless prior mishandlings and one loses the privilege to grow at home or any home that you occupy/residence that has growing in that residence.

The Marijuana Regulating Authority will keep a database on restricted persons are not allowed plants or seeds just like Alcohol the campaign slogan right!

Re: “Presidential Potential

According to section 36-2856 3. Localities could only restrict smoking or production if it was "injurious to the environment or otherwise is a nuisance to a considerable number or persons" I don't see how a localotie could make people register to grow their 6 personal plants with that.

Re: “Presidential Potential

Does anyone understand if you sign up to grow at your residence it is quite possible that with today's visual maps. On all LEO computers when looking at a map that the addresses that have licenses appear in green strips. Well watching a child go into one of these highlighted addresses would constitute a possible felony?

Would that Be a wrong analogy? One is to think just what are we voting for with existing agencies they have in place rules and restrictions that would apply across the board.

Re: “Presidential Potential

If you ask or listen to any of these questions asked to Arizona Political Director for the Marijuana Policy Project, Carlos Alfaro. His response is

"That"s up to the rules committee but I doubt that is the intent"

Vote for this a sucker, living in a suckers reality, talking about being suckered, and what being suckered for decades has done, talking about what a sucker needs to exist. Can't figure that not all hands are helpings

Re: “Presidential Potential

let's take a minute just to ponder some of the ramifications to prop 205. I will take the easiest single one the 6 plant rules to be made. With some of the provisions in the prop allowing some areas to restrict home growing. Just how would that come to be regulated ?

1- To grow your own regulations would mean accounting for people that are growing a registration of sorts.
2- This would include a license/fee for a tag.
3- Registering for a tag you will sign an affidavit stating that you are growing and have it in a concealed/contained.
4- Following regulations you will state no minor children
5- Will have to list all occupants of the home.
6-Will open information on license holders and occupants of the home. To third party vendors mortgage/ins companies zoning authorities etc. etc. No medical protections of privacy are gone.
7- Will ask that all compliance officers be licensed in good standing with the Department of Public Safety be law enforcement.
8- When signing this affidavit you will be forfeiting your right of warrant search.
9- Board can and will deputize all DPS Law enforcement to access it's data base like DMV. I needed can call a compliance officer and gain entry any time of day or night no warrant no nothing.
10- Upon entry for compliance accompanied by a LEO. Might notice a grandchild while grandma as a few plants in the basement under lock and key. BOOM INSTANT 3 FELONIES AND 1 A CLASS 3
11- A home growing has a acquaintance arranged to visit by LEO goes inside and bang here is compliance with a warrantless search.
12- If other LEO agencies they will be able to bill the MDLC for service to assist.
13- One can be fined by the administrative div of MDLC like DMV. Following non compliance with agreement when obtaining a license/tag
14 -Tag will have a date and time limit if it dies to bad you should go to the dispensary in the first place. won't be allowed to clone

With all of this is why they threw in the 6 plant rule at the 11 hr. Who would want to jeopardize themselves to all that by admitting they grow. So they do it without registration then that is way past simple posession manufacturing posession weight. This just all promotes not to grow not worth the risk and costs

This is the kind of stink that has been going on for years.
Voting for prop 205 just says yea we need more stigmatize citizens.

With Arizona being a laboratory of experimental study and to do it they are now second class citizens not covered by Bill of Rights. today's "Jim Crow Law"

Just why are MPP and Holyoak so obtuse on what rules are ?
Sorta of like there are parts of this contract that will be filled out later. And to think some think this is good for the people and sign that.

And to give up all of those rights of a citizen so you can grow 6 plants. The board can even limit strains and check for compliance if caught growing out of permitted strain felonies.

Re: “Presidential Potential

My concern about approving this new law is that there are pages of "legalese" I don't understand, especially about the opponents to this change in law. The proposed law seems to involve creating two new agencies in state government. Is this an opportunity to add an additional layer of law enforcement that Ducey could turn into his much wanted "Border Police?"
