I have not read enough of your reviews to definitively put you in this category, but if you remember Chuck Graham who was a critic for either the Star or Citizen, it got to the point that if he said he didn't like something, I pretty well determined that I was going to like it.
I will be watching.
I support legalization, but am leaning against voting for this, and not because of the scare tactics and lies put out by the opposition.
The MPP has become a lobbyist for the industry, as opposed to a lobbyist for legalization, as it formerly was.
Reefer Madness type arguments against it are showing up. Some people actually believe that stuff.
Given the opportunity, they would be like Carrie Nation.
I am in favor of legalization. I am not in favor of the current ballot initiative here in Arizona. I may or may not vote for it.
The decision comes down to voting for something seriously flawed, just to get it done, or waiting to put something better on the ballot in the future.
I understand the medical growers and dispensaries wanting to protect their investment, but this initiative gives a semi-monopoly to them, to the detriment of anybody else trying to enter the market.
I much prefer Colorado's approach, but with the money behind the current group of lobbyists, it will never happen again.
I have a problem. I personally like Ann Kirkpatrick and think she is a good person, and I like her background. My problem with her is that she votes the beltway party line far too often, and by doing so, is not representing the state that sent her there, as beltway Democratic policies are NOT Arizona. On the other hand, John McCain has lost his way, and I don't think is representing anyone at this point. I may not even vote for either of them, and just leave that one blank. Let the chips fall where they may.
It makes me really upset with Victoria Steele right about now. We lost a semi-sane representative in Phoenix, so that she could run against a Congresswoman who is actually doing a good job, in the vein of Jim Kolbe and Gabby Giffords (too bad Gabby went over to the dark side afterwards).
In return, we have the potential of sending someone like Powers to Phoenix. It makes me ashamed.
