Yee, Kavanagh, Polk, and Montgomery are all intolerant and rabid prohibitionists. Yee would give a clearer indication of her real intentions by burning books. You would think if these people were really worried about this plant that they would want to know more about it. This clearly is not the case. Yee is the head of the Arizona senate education committee. She does not support public education, instead she supports charter schools that profit from us. Marijuana prohibition does not come from a desire to keep people in Arizona safe. It's again about profits, the citizens be damned. Yee, Kavanagh, Polk, and Montgomery want to insure that private prisons are filled with Arizona marijuana users. In Arizona, right now, more people die from prescription drug overdoses than from traffic accidents. Rather than to attack a very real problem that actually kills people here, this group continues to attack Arizonans, including children, with life threatening diseases that are treated by medical marijuana. These disingenuous people use our own tax dollars to try to overturn voter passed initiatives and they spend considerable taxpayer money losing frivolous cases that could have been settled by reading the law and getting out a dictionary to learn the meaning of the words there. They would rather imprison Arizonans than to support our public schools that are the most poorly funded in the entire nation. Kavanagh recently tried to have the state give close to a million dollars to the private prisons that was not even asked for but we don't have money for our schools. This is how this group "empowers" people in Arizona. Do you really think that these actions are meant to help Arizonans or rather to enrich a few well positioned legislators? Marijuana has never killed by overdose.
