Re: “High Hopes for High Times

In a perfect world, it would just be about the health and quality of life for the patient; Unfortunately, in the world we live in, unless there is money to be made -- and I mean lots and lots of money -- the health and quality of life for patients will not even move the needle on the average career politicians G.A.S. (give a sh@t) gauge.

Re: “High Hopes for High Times

Just a tidbit a new foundation is being set in Washington a new congress.

Congress just passed a" 21st Centuries Cure Act " This was co written by Our Martha McSally.

https://www.statnews.com/2016/11/30/21st-century-cures-act-house/

This is major this alone in the 11th hour will force the new congress to take action. We will see the schedule 1 change and study federal standards licensing processing standards. flower will be allowed as it is the fastest delivery method possible controllable on dosage and safe.

We dont hear that much from McSally in this tumultuous political climate. With this we know that she is working this is how the schedule 1 change will happen. Plus so much more for mental health. A bomb went off in Washington exploding the climate I am happy to have her there in a senior environment with a need to come to her endorsement for the next congress.

Re: “High Hopes for High Times

IMHO. To see a qualified doctor with the certification and discuss the use. This alone should be a strong consideration for keeping expanding as well as new targets to direct.

I talk frequently with my neurologist and internist about my use and relate that. I have asked several times if there was an alternate medication. While they all said yes we can try some but in your case it is trial and adjust. Then they all looked at me with complex why would you want to change what's working? My blood work is in control, you're moving around you can help with your high functioning autistic grandchild why would you want to change? Well the stigma and the possible legal ramifications.

So here I wonder Just what is up with our congressmen get this off the schedule 1. There is no other target at this point we dont need crony capitalism of marketability like the public rapeing that 205 would have done. It is not about legalize and tax at some point others have to understand it is about health and quality of life.

Re: “Roll Out

In my humble opinion, Sessions only has one thing in his favor. An unwavering support of the Second Amendment.

Other than that, he is an ass. He reminds me of Ashcroft, who was an unmitigated disaster and embarrassment as Attorney General.

Re: “Cannabis and cancer

MEDICINAL THC CANNABIS OIL CURED MY WIFE'S CANCER

I am writing as the husband of a cancer patient, hoping that an important lesson that my wife and I learned may be of value to others.

My wife Cathy 53, had a history of cancer. Her mother died of breast cancer at the age of 42, and my wife had colo-rectal cancer at the age of 49. Fortunately, surgery alone was able to take care of the one tumor, sparing her the effects of chemotherapy and radiation.

In December of 2014, Cathy noticed that her legs were aching and tiring quickly; my mother, 81 at the time, could last longer when shopping. Cathy was not overweight and used a Nordic Track exerciser regularly. Soon she noticed that her left leg was swelling slightly. We immediately went to the doctor and a CAT scan was performed, but nothing turned up. Other tests also revealed nothing, and the conclusion was drawn that the swelling was lymphedema caused by old scar tissue from the abdominal surgery she had 16 years ago! We found that hard to believe and got numerous more tests and opinions, only to come back to the same place.

The lymphedema spread to her abdomen and other leg, causing swelling there as well. Finally, about a year later, a CAT Scan finally revealed a tumor, and a biopsy determined that it was malignant. Further testing revealed she was in Stage III.

At about the same time, we learned through reading a book on cancer treatments, that there is a blood test called AMAS (Anti-Malignan Antibody in Serum), that will reveal the presence of cancer in the body, sometimes as much as 24 months PRIOR to clinical evaluation (such as a CAT scan), with great accuracy. We were never advised to have this blood test performed, and found that many doctors, including oncologists, do not know of the test. We believe that had we known about this test earlier, we would have had a much earlier diagnosis, making the disease much easier to treat. she has done chemotherapy twice (Taxol and Carboplatinum) but the cancer was not gone until we heard about the cannabis oil and its effective usage in treatment of cancer and we contacted the London cancer centre via emailing the centre at londoncancercentre@gmail.com for procurement of the THC cannabis oil and started using the oil for treatment as directed by the cannabis physician.

After 3 months of usage of this THC cannabis oil my wife's cancer was completely cured and gone. This oil medication brought joy and happiness to the family again.

Re: “High Cost

Did you notice Nick had so much about the story he didn't mention who brought the suit. Just a little of the nuances of that are so persuasive from ADA but lack foundation.

Re: “High Cost

Nick Meyers ; While he equates the cost burden and the revenue received from the Medical Marijuana program.

I see two entities in the whole of considerations cost and returned revenue.

The numbers come from the AZDHS/MMJ program on figures released in the annual report.

For every dollar spent on marijuana in AZ the cost to get it to the point of sell is $.079. Put most of the cost of hiring a doctor to oversee the operation 25 cents for doctor to oversee, security for the operation 21 cents, inventory control costs 21 cents, product labeling 12, patient records 8 cents.

So for every dollar you spend on medical marijuana. where do you see the doctor at the dispensary. Is this to be like the methadone clinics around town owned by doctors that charge insurance $125.00 for a daily dose? That cost figured on what it cost illegally so we can build a business to extrapolate by legal means the same costs? that kind of progressive thinking is that same thinking that has the cartels booming with the heroin trade. The legal pill mills DEA restrictions on pill mill doctors pushing them into the methadone and heroin markets. Now we have pill mill /dispensary owners now since the money is here they have found faith and are singing I found the light come on everyone let's sing together another verse legalize to find the light.

another 21 cents out of every dollar goes to security. This is another bogus fee hire my brother in law to transport retired police he has a business a security company so will pay them $125.00 hr. then we rent from associates cameras windows megalocks safes etc. We dont buy we rent from associates keeps cost high we can always lower prices by culling this wasteful regulated practice.

Then there is inventory control another 21 cents out of every dollar. The cost for that is negotiable it should be close to inventory control of liquor which is .002 cent per dollar according to the Alcohol board.

Then product labeling is .012 cent per dollar excuse me ?? Some dont label, some dont test, some just apply the label on the average they have tested in the last month. there is no standardized testing or labeling but you are paying for it now as if it was there like other states.

let's look at patient records keeping costs $.08 yea buy a inventory, patient record, sales, tax , labor & overhead program and server to handle all of this attribute the cost of this to each and every aspect of the line items listed above.

If prop 205 passed all the operation costs could be cut by 60% or better and after facilities are paid pure profit. The cost of the plant and the area to grow $.08 cents

Let's look at this industry that we want to change the marijuana laws for are they really protecting us from the illegal cartels. I believe it follows the other illegal markets in history. Loan sharking was less than payday loans about half. Alcohol was getting so expensive to the mob that even Capone himself said I should have sold milk the margin was better. In that he had to pay for extreme amounts measure to insure high profits and returns for all that had their hands out. So the Volstead act keeping it illegal and the enforcement killing rivals and collections.

Does this look anything like the legal proposed "Department of Marijuana License and Controls." With police officer rights and authority authority to conduct covert investigations and then report to the board and its administrative court that will have the right to seize and confiscate assets and property REALLY.

Everyone should be joyous that wolf has gone away for awhile. Get off your butts and get this done right for 2018. Stop all this back room dealings. If you bought a lottery dispensary and want to sell then it should go to a lottery system. The point of sell and production should be separate. Testing and distribution should be separate and I believe the state should be the sole distributor throughout the state. All product should go through a state authorized testing facility weight and control monitored. then sold to dispensaries. This would stop price fixing, large operations running out the small local people As well as making it unattractive for out of state and foreign investment.

As of fact since we are making this a state control only. Where it has total control I say no advertizing to commit a federal crime billboards print. No out of state investment only full time Arizona citizens can have access to any kind of corporate or administrative rights associated with any part of the AZ marijuana program. Make the laws reflect the restriction put on to the patient. After all it is them that are paying the price.

Re: “High Cost

This is exactly why governments and corporations must be kept out of medical marijuana manufacturing and marketing, otherwise you are just replacing the illegal drug dealer with a more dangerous and exploitive pusher with the power of taxation, the courts and police. I still think the best solution is to allow individuals to grow and consume their own marijuana and prohibit any commercial sale of individually-grown marijuana. Commercial sale of Marijuana for medical use only should be permitted and regulated to ensure quality control, but absolutely do not let the pharmaceutical companies have anything to do with it whatsoever.

Re: “Oregon Congressman: Legalize It!

It is such a short time relief a good feeling and comfort to know the Medical Marijuana is still going to be with us and law for the foreseeable future.

Take a breath, take in what just happened, take time to reflect. What we will have from now on will be some of the most comprehensive general marijuana understanding ever.

About 100,000 mmj card patients. With the vote being 80,000 spread or 40,000 swing. I believe it is a very strong that 5% of MMJ card carrying patients educated themselves as to what the proposition said meant. Of that 5% that were passionate about how they conducted themselves with medication were appaled by this attempted rapeing of the MMJ program.

I honestly believe it is that 5 % of the mmj card carriers that influenced 4>5 vote around them. So if 5% of the card carriers who influenced 5 others not to pass 205. that would be 25 taken away or a 25 swing resulting in 50,000 for 205 it would have won.

ADA and the group take notice we are not all sheeps to the sheer.

Re: “Oregon Congressman: Legalize It!

Ive served as an elected District Attorney in Conservative Texas. Every DA is on a limited budget. We have to make choices. I believe in strict punishment for violent offenders and burglars. I rarely gave probation. Unfortunately we had to deal with all these annoying pot cases. Even when pot users got probation the understaffed probation officers had to make sure they were in by 10PM Id rather they checked on sex offenders.]
Revenues are another reason to legalize. The Washington Post reports for 2015 Colorado gained 18,000 pot-related jobs and $2.4 billion in revenue. 2016 will be much better.

Use among teens has not increased both according to surveys from the Denver Post and Federal Government.

Its best to vote Yes.

Re: “Oregon Congressman: Legalize It!

Carpet Baggers - " forcing recreational marketing of marijuana" - is that anything like the "mandatory gay marriage" Ted Cruz kept talking about before Obergefell v. Hodges?

Frankly, the strongest argument supporting legalization of marijuana is the fact that the anti-legalization forces clearly believe that the only way they can win is by engaging in overt lies and outrageous distortions.
