Re: “Legalization Props

Just looking at this carrot/caveat depending on conception of understanding of 6 plants. what does that mean? Is that really definitive?

Anyone who has grown more than 2 harvests inside knows it's a joke the yield is so small per plant it would hardly be a market force. Would hardly be a addicted user supply chain Dispensaries and agents know this too.

Rules to be written will do what several state tried and Maine votes rejected. The Point of sell for clones only certain clone will be sold through to be nego, (tbd) outlets.

When a person obtains a clone from a licensed taxing agent. It will be given a tag good for so long. A person will have to apply for and sign a agreement to forgo all rights property & search rights to allow compliance of the agreement.

Basically a Retired police/compliance officer come to the door and says we are here to look at your grow. Retired police that are still in good standing with the DPS license to be a police officer in the state. They are still police carry weapons and can do all the police functions up to Swat Team's.

It also seems inconceivable 6 plants as a definitive amount. I know several older people in rural that would allow family member to obtain and grow 12 plants on their rural property. Outside the harvest could go on for 2 months or better culling the buds much bigger harvest. Then you have the guy trying to save a buck by buying a tent and some lights. hardly equivalent of each other . A stalk of corn grown in a closet or one grown in the field what's going to yield more? Can you just imagine the cost to police that, it will be added onto the price at point of sale.

Yea the only person that would vote for this abortion of personal righs is he one going to the dispensary getting that oil based suppository and need instruction on the application.

User we have gone done the right thing getting MMJ. Some meeting with a legitimate doctor and to so regularly discussing the use I do. We have a force of 90,000+ we need to be heard not represented by the market forces. In Oct we will be present.

VOTE NO PROP 205 KEEPING PERSONAL RIGHTS

Re: “Legalization Props

A very good story on several points addiction & societal resulting in positions taken. The position ADRP will still be enforced Montgomery & Polk will be in a position to negotiate each of their counties. This is a no loss to the political contributions aspects to both.

If 205 passes every county attorney will be in a position to negotiate how marijuana will be enforced. What is now bundled together with Marijuana smoke shops, home growing. Just how does Polk lose, Montgomery can now negotiate on every aspect of what happens in the county.

The rules not even written kind of like we have to vote for it to see what comes. Some look at this as an opportunity others as the wolf in the hen house. Given the past history and how marijuana has been prosecuted. The industries that built and used to support and complement the enforcement, prosecution, probation, abuse counseling, incarnation. All of these industries will continue to flourish and feed off of marijuana prohibition. There will be no change just a new component to the feed chain of Marijuana.

The simple target is to limit the criminal and civil penalties to marijuana use. Prop 205 addresses the right to market and support it. With the criminal simple possession prosecution harshest in all 50 states where's the win for the user.

The AZ Marijuana user has complemented the existing industry to obtaining 90,000 plus MMJ licenses. Everyone know's that this is the distribution for the illegal market in AZ today.

It would not be unreasonable to ask this Market forced entity for relief. Relief from the Jack boot on the back of the neck of the consumer. Relief from frivolous prosecution relief of unreasonable search and enforcement. Repealing the criminal code 13-3405.

However repealing 13-3405 felony for simple possession to be negotiated at every turn. The market representatives know this only bolsters their market control and price. As you can see really nothing for the consumer but limited availability and the harshest persecution of you stray. Every user goes under the bus with this.

Arizona needs to decriminalize before it builds a market. Prop 205 does not do any of this and the representatives don't give a damn. This whole concept was drawn with the idea it could sell the concept of conservative voter base Sun city, Green Valley, Snowbird Capital. They missed the target there too the political profiling is not accurate or comprehensive.

All this does is build another new business feeding of the addiction of marijuana. With a new prohibition effort written by the collective rep of counties attorney's. It gives new laws on so many ancillary businesses that the county attorney's never had. New laws that the counties could not get representative in the legislatures to propose. What is bundled here is a pandora's box.

Re: “Fall Arts Preview: Theater

The Tucson Community Theater Company's performance of "The New American Candidate" runs for 3 weeks, not 3 days as the article states. Sept 14 through the 30th. Also, the writer had another typo, as "100 local talent" should be "100% local talent."

I was in favor of the other initiative which did not make the ballot. I am still not sure if I will vote for this one.

Re: “Tucson Salvage

Very weird ramblings. I assume you are trying to channel Daheny or Fitz, who try and disguise biased political commentary as humor.

However, it was a bit funny.

If you want to see New England type fall colors in Arizona, go down to the Chiricahua Mountains in southeast Arizona, and specifically go to Maple Camp.

Re: “A Taco Welcome

It's beyond me why anyone would bring jive Mexican facsimile food to the town that has the best Mexican fare in the U.S. That photo just screams ranch dressing and salsa that tastes like spaghetti sauce. Oh well, people that frequent 4th Ave. are so stoned, they don't know what they're eating anyway.

Re: “Legalization Props

It's fascinating how the fear of "Marihuana" first instilled in the public mind in the 1930's through blatantly deceitful and racist propaganda has endured to this day. The folks at ARDP and their ilk are still drinking that antique, polluted kool-aid. Fortunately, their numbers are rapidly declining along with their delusions of doom.

Vote yes on Prop 205! It's not perfect, but much better than prohibition. Laws in Colorado are evolving to be more reasonable as the benefits of legalization accrue and fears subside. Same will happen here.

Re: “A Taco Welcome

I've already suggested the owner name something after Boatner's. I was thinking a signature beer from a local brewery, like "Boatner's Seaside Ale" or a Boatner's taco or something.

Re: “The New York Times is Telling the Story of How Tucson Became an 'Unlikely Food Star'

A few things stuck in my craw about this article.

First, "this land of heat and cactuses." It's *cacti*, dammit, *cacti*. You're a New York Times writer, for heaven's sake!

Second, the assumption that Tucson's foodie reputation is not really "all about the restaurants." Oh no? Then what do you make of El Minuto, Tavolino, the Grill at Hacienda Del Sol, Brooklyn Pizza Company, La Placita, or the simple pleasure of a well-crafted sandwich or sushi roll on the patio at AJ's?

Last but not least, I need to repeat what a few commenters on the NYT article itself mentioned: Tucson is a fabulous place to grow your own produce year-round and has no shortage of truly fresh fruits and vegetables.

The article was halfway between being decent and damning with faint praise, if you ask me.

Re: “World View Case Moves Forward After Motion Denied

Let's not forget that Pima County also lost a recent case. In the case that is described in the article, the State ingnored the law. In the case lighting case described below, Pima County ignored the law. Seems to me that the County ignored the law once again. https://arizonadailyindependent.com/2016/0…

Re: “What John Oliver Said About Charter Schools

Spoken like a true teacher. World and federal governments have overloaded the public schools with unnecessary crap and nobody wants to admit they just can't seem to teach the basics. That's exactly why thinking parents have left. I appreciate choice in education for all. At this point what do you have to lose?
