Re: “Planning Progress

I wish any presentation would begin with a brief opening report about the overall safety and lack of harm to Tucson's medical marijuana users. The fears of increased crime, traffic fatalities, teen use, etc. are not happening. Politicians are still treating cannabis, a non-toxic plant, as if it was plutonium.

First gut AZPM, then go after marijuana research. President Hart and her army of well-paid assistants-to-the-president-in charge-of-feather bedding- and-ass-kissing are a disgrace. Fire Hart, ignore Biggs, bring back Sissley.

Re: “Planning Progress

In the commission presentation to the council Brad stated they had the dispensaries owners in the audience, were their any caregiver network owners in attendance? The caregiver grow too for patients to match strain to ailment. Dispensaries give happy hour discounts, referral freebies, maybe a strain matched to ailment if in stock a switch to the high THC. Long waits little knowledge of patients ailment and treatment needed. A caregiver comes instructs and grows for the patient. The limit on grow size was established in the start for the size care givers could have. By passing this It will put hundreds of caregivers out of work which have not been accounted for in the article. They are growing enough now the patients what this will do is say only the market orientated of high THC forgoing the strain development. The analogy of a Pizza business is just ridiculous. You would have to be stoned to believe that one

When we put our dog down at the Vet, it didn't take but a minute. What's the difference if we treat them like animals up until their death, we might as well treat them that way all the way through.

Re: “If a Botched Execution Isn't Enough to End the Death Penalty in Arizona, What Is?

Well, well Danny Gallardo. I happen to watch the press conference after the execution. The families of the victims had a lot to say. They were glad to see him killed. His crime was horrific.
And you don't know anything about me. Even if I believe in the Judeo-Christian god. Talk about making generalizations--but you Progressive Liberal types tend to do that.
The guy injecting the drugs does the same as pulling a trigger.
Utah had the best idea. 7-8 guys with M-1 Garand Rifles. Works every time. Quick and no mix-ups. Gary Gilmore didn't have any 2 hour experiences.

What makes Americans so hypocritical. All of you God fearing men evidentially never listened to his words: Thou shalt not Kill. I didn't note any exception for the state. What a blood thirsty lot we are.

Re: “Planning Progress

Funny how there is over 50,000 patients with valid AZ MMJ cards that cost $150 to the AZDHS. There are only 8 dispensaries in Tucson that maybe have 100 total people working for them and the rules are being relaxed for the dispensaries? Where is the ability for the patients to grow their own medicine without having to pay exorbitant prices at these supposed "non-profit" medical marijuana dispensaries.

Please show some common sense City Council Members and lighten up and allow the patients to grow their 12 plants without the fear of TPD sending in the swat teams and attack helicopters on the patients. This is what the law was for to help patients not make the already wealthy dispensary owners even richer.

Re: “If a Botched Execution Isn't Enough to End the Death Penalty in Arizona, What Is?

the comment being better than the executed is bs if it was your family member so cruelly killed would your view be different I am sure it may be this animal got what he deserved did he humanely kill this woman doubt it he should have suffered longer if you ask me I hope it was painful and terrifying now he knows how his victim felt

Re: “If a Botched Execution Isn't Enough to End the Death Penalty in Arizona, What Is?

I kinda like this.


"The guillotine is probably best but seems inconsistent with our national ethos. And the electric chair, hanging and the gas chamber are each subject to occasional mishaps. The firing squad strikes me as the most promising," wrote Alex Kozinski, the 9th Circuit's chief judge. "Using drugs meant for individuals with medical needs to carry out executions is a misguided effort to mask the brutality of executions by making them look serene and peaceful -- like something any one of us might experience in our final moment."

It sounds like the two of you, who most probably profess your allegiance to God, would be the first ones to pull the trigger of that .44. How does that make you a better person than the executed? Big talk. What macho men you both are. God help us.
