Re: “AZ Dispensaries Sell More Medical Pot As Fewer People Are Able to Grow Their Own

I wont go to a dispensary been to most. I have a medical MMJ card for medical ailments 3 years now. I did not join a life style or grouping. I order my prescription medication from Walgreen online. I don't get happy hour special's, punch cards, daily promotions and specials, sit for sometimes hour for medication. I need to know the cost of my medication so I can budget a life. This $20.00 a gram $420.00 an ounce is ridiculous. $150.00 mid shelf and $200.00 per ounce for top is market. Go to other states on Weed Maps see for yourself. Plus I have found a community caregiver that will grow for your ailment is paramount there is no guarantee what you get form a dispensary is really even the strain being advertised. I can attest if you go to Phoenix as I do weekly I can get quality lab tested medication by the ounce not gram for $8.00 a gram 225 oz wth tax included vet discount for top. It is simple getting them in the door is one thing getting back is another. If you cannot be economically viable with your growing operation then those that are will be in the future. I don't not begrudge anyone for wanting and voting recreational and taxing it of a life style built around it.

What is happening is big BIG tobacco and alcohol are behind this recreational movement with these price's set as normal they will blitz the dispensary or local grower but then at least it will be really lab tested and stain quantified. The proposition 106 that made it to the constitution of the state gave certain right's to the medical patient every dispensary is in direct competition with that proposition and support the 25 mile rule. while they are still under that proposition 106 to be in business. Dispensaries want an umbrella for the state to guarantee the product market. Medication should not be or have intrastate regulation put on it. As for my support for dispensaries they have not helped me in understanding ailments strains they are useless for medical in my humble opinion

Re: “AZ Dispensaries Sell More Medical Pot As Fewer People Are Able to Grow Their Own

Here's what you need to know about growing your own medicine: Anyone with $500 minimum to spend on a good LED light can supply all their own for as little as 1/20th the cost per gram compared to medical card prices. After the payback period of your initial investment in growing equipment, (which is anywhere from 6 months to a year on average) you are only paying extra for electricity. Currently, an efficient LED light using 120 - 180 actual watts used can produce up to an ounce per square foot in a 6 sq ft footprint. You will make mistakes and have problems, but you will also learn the most on your first grow.

Re: “A Delicate Balance

I too was ignored when I went to Neo, about a month ago. I guess Bob and Bird were the lucky ones who actually got to eat there. I'm guessing by the number of likes on TucsonDiner and AsianHomeCook's posts that this problem is more common than not. Sad, really. I love Malaysian food.

Those silly Az politicians thinking will change, say around..election time when the unsuspected, but fast growing political might of those they are trying to "keep in line" through lack of education, suddenly find themselves the "minority" with it, it will happen, just a matter of time!

Education=power, all USA citizens should want to build our youth, not limit them!

Re: “A Delicate Balance

Excellent Asian fare. Wonderful curries and noodle dishes. I have tried Malaysian food in several major cities and it simply doesn't compare. The occasional service glitch is offset by the fantastic creative tasty food. Quite possibly the best Asian cusine in the state. Shouldn't be a well kept secret.
Rather a Tucson treasure...

Re: “The Skinny

The ACA no matter how you tweek it is a loser. Obama will veto everything because that is his baby.

I have to agree that Ducey is stupid to make blanket absolute proclamations. Mr. Governor you have disappointed me already. You are painting your self in a box just like Obama did.

Re: “Danehy

I posted a picture of me on my bike for years. After I sold it I changed it to my dog in his N.Y. Rangers jersey. As far as names go, years ago I sent a letter to the Red Star and my parents got flooded with nasty phone calls. My father and I have the first name. My number is unlisted, his isn't. At their age they don't need nasty calls from 'civil' liberals. Who cares? Obviously you do or you wouldn't have bothered to write. Too easy, Brother. Too easy.

So, Ricky, to be clear, are you arguing for or against the sick policies in place that allow sexual harassment of detainees?

Give the test to the incoming Legislators immediately. See if any pass.

Re: “Darkness Visible

I imagine that this thing will evaporate when they discover that there is a lot of unaccounted for union resources around election-time ( e.g. the " ground game") . Let's hope the dems think that they lost the Senate because there was some sinister financial force....and not because The chosen One and Harry Reid were inept.
