Mr. Smith you continue to be the prohibitionists' best friend with your usage of their slang for cannabis -- pot and weed (and even marijuana). You are neck and neck with the major asswipe on this subject Howie Fischer of Arizona Capitol Times and stop being a flak for the dispensary industry. Call it cannabis or Mary Jane or the trees or the herb but "Pot" is the favorite word of the media when they are too goddamn lazy to use more than a 3 letter word. You have been the MMJ critic for an entire year and yet oddly you fail to cover the basic story in Tucson which is the police in direct contradiction of the intent of the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act and their reign of terror in using undercover cops and informants at the AZDHS to arrest, harass and generally try and crib death the MMJ program. Get your stoner arse out of your "pot haze" and start doing some real journalistic writing or else let someone else have your job.
I live in california. And this is very comfortable state when it comes to the weather. But not so comfortable when it comes to laws, traffic and taxation. I think legalization would be a very good investment for this state. The pros obviously would out way the cons in so many different aspects. History has proven that to us and other countries. but theres still money hungry media, religious beliefs pharmaceutical companies, federal government agencies and state government agencies that still claim it's demoralizing, sinful and harmful. Or are they just afraid of change?. Hemp, cannabis and medical cannabis is a plant given to mankind by mother nature to use as a tool for life. No matter how hard us humans try to contradict that. Will always find a way to use cannabis. So lets legalize, regulate and tax everyone that sees this.
Seems like legalization would get both Republican and Democrat support. Republicans can cash in on the growth ( I'm sure the cigarette companies are raring to go) and the Democrats would enjoy the product. Then we could drop the medicinal fig leaf.
We all know legalize is Best
Thank you for your writings.
stop the lies,,,legalize !!!
Hey, I am gonna give my homestate (Arizona) the middle finger and will be moving to Colorado where voters voted to legalise cannabis for everyone over 21 years of age. It is a no-brainer, F%&* Off Arizona!, I am going to Colorado. Arizona, and Joe Arpaio, can eat shit!!
It's a good policy for anyone wanting to stay safe, secure and not worry about a SWAT raid to stay off of CraigsList. Are you a plant for the po-po Mr. Smith? Why are you trying to get our patients in trouble by having them go on Craigslist to make a purchase of cannabis? Please be responsible since you are well read in the community and I don't always agree with you and your love of the dispensaries over the patients having the power but it is what it is. Mr. Humble is not going to be the AZDHS Director for much longer (a little birdie told me this) so hopefully the next Director won't be ignorant, hostile to the patients and educated about the plant.
