Re: “Backers of Higher Minimum Wage File Petitions To Ask Voters To Boost Wages

Wrong, Again is so ignorant that he doesn't realize raising the minimum wage wouldn't even effect the pay of an undocumented immigrant. But, then again, maybe he does and he posted that because he was going through withdrawals since he hasn't posted either one of those stupid statements in the last few comments he has posted.

Please, please, please go away Wrong, Again. Far away.

Re: “Marijuana Legalization Group Submits Initiative to Secretary of State's Office with More Than 250K Signatures

This whole discussion reminds me of one quote from Abe Lincoln
" You can argue points, however you can't argue against right"

MLK ; " Injustice anywhere is an attack on justice everywhere"

To allow municipalities and counties to decide if they want to allow rights ? Remindes me of one state slave one state free.

Re: “Marijuana Legalization Group Submits Initiative to Secretary of State's Office with More Than 250K Signatures

I am not going to go for personal testimonies or character questions. One undeniable fact is MPP's proposal is still prohibition. Prohibition that in one form or another has not worked for close to 80 years now. Prohibition that was always focused to keep the youth and protect society from perils. Again this has not worked again we are asked for a new brand of prohibition. A brand where it's use and distribution manufacture will be controlled and that will be arbitrary.

While it is true MPP wrote the initiative that passed by 51% what was it's intention ? All the board of Directors of MPP have been replaced since then and the previous president has defaming comments about the currents board. It appears the current board is also sits on so many industry boards and councils hardly relates to good faith IMHO. I dont believe a patient hold tribute to any before those, that have been convicted differently just between counties. Those that have had multiple felonies attached for just having papers and a pipe.

While I thank You Kathy Inman for your patronage in this evil. One we call prohibition. It is not matter what the face and between repealing of 13-3401 and this ridiculous industry based initiative.

For the record I am elderly and family has been here since before it was a territory. I have lost family in every war and that too of the war on drugs. I am not associated with part of this industry and would proudly meet you for a public town hall forum for the good of the people. Lets chat?

I have lived in Arizona since 1992 and I know the harms of alcohol. It is time for a safer alternative to be legal and available to Everyone.

Ive never made a dime -and stand to make no money. I am here because this plant heals and saves lives -and I know hemp will save the planet.
I want to grow six plants. I want people to stop having penalties for possession. This CRMLA would have protected me and the majority of Arizonans all of their lives.
MPP did not do Washington's initiative.
MPP did legalize Colorado.
MPP did give 90,000 Arizonans their medical rights.
I trust MPP. I am VOTING YES.

Kathy Inman ; If the CRLMA passes it will be the end of MMJ. It will immediately be transferred into the Department of Marijuana License and Controls. It will then be up to the board on how they will relinquish certain medical considerations to AZDHS for medical purposes.

Everything you have stated is false. The creation of the DMLC will maintain a high level of price. Thus giving margin for the black market to flourish.

To not take this as fact; Let's look At Washington State Univ. The "Consequences and Cost of Marijuana Prohibition "
https://aclu-wa.org/library_files/MarijuanaProhibition.pdf

These undeniable results of the type of prohibition the MPP's CRLMA will have. It is not true anything because nothing trueful has been said yet. Just who is are the backers of the initiative why are they hiding? Not the supporters but the money backers?

To Ex-Arizonan:
Medical Patients may still possess up to 2.5 ounces, and there is no tally of product purchased within the adult use parameters.

Re: “Marijuana Legalization Group Submits Initiative to Secretary of State's Office with More Than 250K Signatures

What sort of reporting is this? The good non profit that brought us this opportunity to be free from the prohibition that has poisoned our people for decades is the same that legalized Colorado. The man who is quoted at the end of this article is standing up for the black market when he calls the Marijuana Policy Project greedy. He works for an operation out of California that ruined their legalization a few years ago. I have been an unpaid volunteer for cannabis for eight years in our state, and I am appalled to see such reporting from a news source I once trusted. Jason Madar is nothing but a bafoon who is mad because he will no longer be able to sell bags of weed after regulation. Get a real job, Jason Medar, and stop standing in the way of our freedom.
When this passes we will be able to carry one ounce of marijuana, grow six of our plants that can produce as much as we like as long as it stays at home, and we will legalize hemp production.
Any red blooded American Arizonan who doesn't want to see that is either uneducated about cannabis, a prohibitionist, or a criminal trying to save the Black Market.

Re: “Tucson, I Am You. You Are Me. What Are WE Going To Do?

I am here for you. I hear you. I am trying my hardest to use the privilege I have as a disabled white female veteran as a lever to overturn the bigotry and horror. You are Tucson, you belong here and you are loved. With the Gods as my witnesses, if I saw or heard anything like the horror that has been visited on so many people of color, I would intervene. I would do so even if it meant I was hurt or jailed myself. I served my country for all Americans, not just the ones I resemble. It's so ugly and sad and difficult... I want you to know I see it, too. I have cried so often these last few days and I am crying right now. But I'll take the pain... I would rather feel it than close my eyes and fail to see what's happening.

BLACK LIVES MATTER.

Re: “Tucson, I Am You. You Are Me. What Are WE Going To Do?

Thank you, Sir. Don't fret over the dislikes. They're painless. I must thank you. Because of what we wrote about last week, I spent the better part of the 4th of July over dosing on George Carlin skits on YouTube. Beats the Hell out of burnt hot dogs and warm potato salad !
As far as BLM goes, I don't know what their intentions are. However I feel it hurts more than it helps.
I was raised to believe that ALL people are equal. I stand by that to this day.

More money for illegals, taken from the dwindling number of legal earners.

5th poorest city in the country after decades of total control by liberals and damn proud of it.

Re: “Tucson, I Am You. You Are Me. What Are WE Going To Do?

Crazy W isn't a bad person, we can actually be civil in our interactions. Plus, a person who has the good taste he has in entertainment can't be all bad. If you want to hate on someone because they come across as pure negativity, focus your efforts on What, Again.

I actually agree with Mr. 13 when he points out that ALL lives matter. The black lives matter statement does come across as if some lives are more important than others. I don't believe that was ever the intention, but if we truly want to break down racial barriers maybe we can start doing that by not including those differences in our mission statements.

And the flood of dislikes roll in...

Re: “DCCC Links McSally and Other House Republicans to Trump in Early Air War Sortie

OH yes ! Lets cast our vote for MRS. Clinton instead, she's a far better candidate, then that racist Donald Trump, she's Honest, trustworthy, compassionate. Loves our veterans, why she was even under fire once, so she knows what our soldiers went through in Benghazi, when they were under siege by a rowdy crowd, upset over a video.

And she never lied to congress under oath. As 'Secretary of State' she was unaware of the laws regarding Top Secret E-mails sent on a private server were illegal. Stupid ass Conservatives.

She's genuine, why she even threw all of our police departments throughout the country, under the bus, because all of them are a bunch of racist S.O.B.'s and she encouraged young Black African Americans to do the same. She hates terrorist. especially Radical Christian Conservatives.

She's going to continue to fight against the Second amendment, Heck, why should the common, law abiding citizens of this nation, deserve the same protection as the Clintons and the Obamas, Right ?

Ladies and Gentlemen, on Nov, 8 cast you're vote for a woman of true integrity, Hilary Clinton 2016, YEA !

Re: “Tucson, I Am You. You Are Me. What Are WE Going To Do?

the idea behind black lives matter is not to imply that some lives matter more than others, but just that certain attention should be given to the fact that blacks are killed at a greater rate than other ethnic groups.

for the record even though i agree that something should be done about the disproportionately higher rate of deaths among african americans, i don't agree with the direction the movement has taken. especially not having any centralized leadership and focusing almost entirely on police killings while not addressing black-on-black murder.

btw i didnt dislike your comment

Re: “Tucson, I Am You. You Are Me. What Are WE Going To Do?

This is coming from the most hated right-winger who comments regularly around here. ALL LIVES MATTER. PERIOD. Very shortly the dislikes will start to pile up for no other reason than they know my picture and my name. How about doing me a small favor. After you hit dislike, at least explain what it is you don't like about what I said. I hate to get him in trouble, but AZ/DC might tell you that I aint all that bad a person.

Re: “Flake vs. Trump, or More Lunacy From The Donald's Efforts To Unify the Party

Recent article in the NYT: "Would Donald Trump Quit if He Wins the Election? He Doesn’t Rule It Out"

and more,

"Now he is refusing to rule out an even more dramatic departure, one that would let him avoid the grueling job of governing, return to his business and enjoy his now-permanent status as a news media celebrity."

Great.
