Re: “Prop 205: Let’s Make a Deal

Chelsea Clinton speaks on marijuana:

During a speech at the Youngstown State University in Ohio last weekend, Chelsea Clinton said that there is new evidence to suggest that marijuana could be fatally interacting with other drugs.

"But we also have anecdotal evidence now from Colorado, where some of the people who were taking marijuana for those purposes, the coroner believes, after they died, there was drug interactions with other things they were taking," she said when asked about Hillary Clinton's position on marijuana research.

Chelsea Clinton's spokeswoman added that the Democratic nominee "has said we should allow states that have reformed their marijuana laws to act as laboratories...

No on 205. This bill has been crafted for specific rea$on$ that don't benefit the public.

Re: “Prop 205: Let’s Make a Deal

Here is the Debate Between Maricopa County attorney Bill Montgomery and MPP & Holyoak on prop 205.

I will have to give some considerations to Bill as when he speaks he represents on how authority acts and represents itself. Bill words can reflect in current ongoing litigation on hundreds of avenues.

Holyoak does not have that burden and is not responsible for anything really but let's get this going to so how it looks.

This debate has been broken up and editorialized to just a few sound bites this is it in the entirety. If you are really concerned watch it. You will see the stories 90% of the marijuana convictions are for posession simply just not true. Just what liability does Arizona Political Director for the Marijuana Policy Project, Carlos Alfaro have to lose ? nothing he gets paid either way he is a political hack.

The debate; http://www.azcentral.com/videos/news/politics/arizona/2016/09/21/90797362/

Re: “Prop 205: Let’s Make a Deal

sgssmith:
And just what are dark money factors could you please elaborate?

I bet if this passes and the departments & employees will be civil servants. That is the staff that would go to makeup the department and all of it's divisions. these people are represented in the work force by Civil Service and labor union agreements. We already have these agencies.

Right now we have a right to work state. But does not include government workers as they are in both labor represented with employment. I propose all workers in the dispensaries, growers, processors, caregivers, bud tenders, be union represented.

If all workers were represented and limited as the amount of outlets and licenses given. Why can't they pay start at living wage of $20.00 to start with retirement and 401k contributions ? Yea I bet the colors on the camillian change quickly. It would be money the patient paying out the "hmmmm" progressive owner's pocket would this be considered then DARK MONEY going against representation?

I bet we will hear that they can't do it and afford to keep the prices they are. But the truth is, it is a limited price fixed market commodity that dark money has 2 sets on the board. And 4 community activist that are clamoring for hand outs how's that for DARK money.

Let's tie legislative pay to Marijuana tax and pay every legislature $100.000 annually and a staff and office cost to cap @$ 250.000. that would be 31,500,000. That's the achilles heel to dark money people what they represent dont need income. It is directed through Government contracts and departments. It is there in the back side.

With estimated tax revenue @$123 million at current prices and burden leaving 91 million for schools operating costs. Just think this would give Guadalupe, Gila Bend, Willcox, Havasupai, Sierra Vista, Page, San Luis, Douglas, all equal representation not just the rich PHX dark money center. That keep the money in PHX.

Re: “Prop 205: Let’s Make a Deal

OK, so once again we’re getting someone telling us to go ahead and vote for something that is not perfect, but it’s better than nothing. How soon you forget the Proposition 123 fiasco. Here’s a thought, if the legislators cannot write legislation that is good for the people, then perhaps they need to be FIRED! Sure you have to wait until they are up for re-election, but stop putting people into office that only write legislation for their dark money benefactors.

Re: “Prop 205: Let’s Make a Deal

The legal act of prop 205 is called " Marijuana Regulation & Taxation" It is just that simple.

It is surprising that the total annually going to education has grown from 40 million to 55 million in just 6 months.

We have The Arizona Political Director for the Marijuana Policy Project, Carlos Alfaro stating what he believes.

I would base my decision to build a new police dept, licensing dept, revenue collection dept, administrative civil court, (with the legal ability to levy fines and liens against property)

ON THIS BAGHDAD BOB'S idea of what might happen not an administrator but a salesman the Joe Isuzu of legislation.

Re: “Prop 205: Let’s Make a Deal

I support legalization, but am leaning against voting for this, and not because of the scare tactics and lies put out by the opposition.

The MPP has become a lobbyist for the industry, as opposed to a lobbyist for legalization, as it formerly was.
