Re: “To Pot or Not

"Put down the dope do something constructive with your life"
Well 65 raised 4 kids all graduated college and moved to better employment climate. Paid all my taxes and mortgage lived in the same neighborhood for 38 years. Stricken with nerve problems and now an advocate for Medical Marijuana it availability it's quality, safety, education, understanding and study. How's that for something constructive since some are the one's with the scale to measure by...

I have been around so long it makes me very nervous to see this much time and money being spent on someone industry that just want to help.

Re: “To Pot or Not

Colorado expected a windfall from MJ taxes. They made money, yes, but not nearly what they expected. Why? They made the tax rate too high. When the taxes make the cost of the legal product too high, people will continue to use their old dealer.

Greed rarely pays, whether in government or the private sector.

Re: “To Pot or Not

I for one am completely against this proposed legislation. I will not support his bill or any candidate that votes for it. This is not freedom from governmental abuse but the formula for more and more and more. $50.00 an ounce TAX just where is this going to be collected at point of sale. If the tax can be raised and lowered at will by the ADHS depending on no table no barometer of cost or value I don't no like the distribution of revenue 10% for education how about 30% for study overseen by a University with at least 10 years established in peer review. If any copy write or intellectual properties come out of this is will belong to the citizens of the State of Arizona.

I do not see one thing in this proposed legislation that helps the Medical patient. I do not see standards put on ADHS on testing at the POS (point of sale) for smoke edibles and very VERY stiff fines and a bond of assurance filed after if product on shelf does not matched labeled percentages and since it is a consumable every piece of product need and has to be tested for accuracy.

I have read this new proposed legislation and for the user it gives away all the right of employment and representation that the current amendment 203 that is protecting the user today. They to scare the user by saying they are going to protect the possessor of 2 LBS or less for not having a felony only a misdemeanor WTF. What about the Medical user went gone here huh.

Lets look in the next 2 years between CO & WA things that don't get mentioned here. like the huge amounts of product that is sitting on shelves in both the decline and not even close to projected revenue collection as expected. Yes these fancy web pages writers paid for by Publicity agencies (attorneys) contributions to NORMAL and so forth. These are sheep in wolves clothing.

if This legislation goes I would propose a amendment that all product for sale has to go to a state clearing house and all dispensaries will have to buy product from them for standards and continuity of product. Anyone can grow whenever and wherever they proposed as long as security and environment are set they then need to sell all product to a clearing house. This will guarantee strain quality strength contaminants. No the appearance for impropriety and graft and manipulation is to much we need to go to a state clearing house. And for that matter I will give no support to the dispensaries for this kind of back handed Stalinist legislation.

Re: “Good and Grown-Up

I'm a newbie buying & smoking again. Again means I bought many years ago illegally so to step into a store that sells and I buy legally is pretty fantastic!!

The dispensary is very large, ample parking and private. After being buzzed in, I open the door to a large waiting area. I show my DL & ID card to the receptionist. Then I'm directed to a door. The room is large with a counter that reaches one end to the other. Clean, very friendly helpful staff. I ask a lot of questions & I'm impressed with the answers & kindness I receivex­čśâ

Highly recommend and will be back again, again.
