Re: “Extract Excitement

I know dozens that have grown and kept so even during legalization. A few still do not for sale because price, Most stopped because they want and support dispensaries and the MMJ program. Even though modern equipment is so productive and done right can yield good amount cheaply, if you dont account for time.

It seems we dont have a target or definitive director of consumer advocacy in Arizona for MMJ. It is not in the Dept of Health to defend the laws just implement them in a safe consumable or declared risks. Pop 205 was the same it allowed for each and every county to write their own ordinances.

Is this not up to the Atty gen. Cant the MMJ program use some of the monies in the Dept of Revenue MMj accounts about 20 million now. To represent the citizen of equal protection on how the law is implemented?

Re: “Saving Sisley

Not to diminish the contribution of veterans and their devotion to the oath to country and sole. PTSD can be birthed in all parts of society personality managed and able. I dont believe it can be eradicated treated but socially understood. There is the Achilles heal to the whole of Marijuana therapy.

It is apparent that legalization is a strong consideration to diminish some of the social ill's from Alcohol. A lot less physically harmful not as extreme in over indulgence. For this approach no medical oversight but for epidemic study in conflict with medical completely.

Some are of the idea that no medical oversight let anyone grow and compassion of sole will render a benevolent society. Self medication by smoke lodge/drum/aroma therapy has benefits but not measurable consistent results.

There are so many aspects to marijuana. With the International WHO endorsed academics compiling decades of study from Diabetes, Autism, Neuroscience not to mention the placebo.

I would plead for anyone who has experienced or is PTSD to call. Remember it can be socially caused and enhanced PTSD is about fear and who/where represents it.

Re: “Ousting Opioids

We don't have to worry about the opioid epidemic in Pima County. Ray Carroll mailed me a letter saying that said he has committed his life to ending that problem. Then he took an appointed position, by Huckleberry Hound, as Justice of the Peace in Green Valley. Commitment over?

Re: “Ousting Opioids

That is the same structure of profits marketing. With removal of community responsibility by removing medical mandates. Building pill mills with some state standards different from others ? Quazi community front people that are dependent on monies from the market and restricted access. HMM sound like prop 205?

Re: “Ousting Opioids

Until the policing and punishment is focused on the suit-wearing drug dealers of Big Pharma and the politicians and pusher MDs in their pockets, the opioid epidemic will continue.

Re: “Foggy Forecast

Whats happening is all people getting a MMJ license automatically purges you off jury rolls. Both Local and Federal courts

Nationally legalizing by strict license and controls only keeps a direct funding source for all of the industries that sprang up during the "WAR ON DRUGS". Most are bogus and a burden on the society and families stigmatize users and maintains a drug class of people.

Marijuana is not a political issue, that so many try here to hang the banner on. which is as much Bull as the war on drugs.

Re: “Foggy Forecast

It's time for us, the majority of The People to take back control of our national marijuana policy. By voting OUT of office any and all politicians who very publicly and vocally admit to having an anti-marijuana, prohibitionist agenda! Time to vote'em all OUT of office. Period. Plain and simple.

Politicians who continue to demonize Marijuana, Corrupt Law Enforcement Officials who prefer to ruin peoples lives over Marijuana possession rather than solve real crimes who fund their departments toys and salaries with monies acquired through Marijuana home raids, seizures and forfeitures, and so-called "Addiction Specialists" who make their income off of the judicial misfortunes of our citizens who choose marijuana, - Your actions go against The Will of The People and Your Days In Office Are Numbered! Find new careers before you don't have one.

The People have spoken! Get on-board with Marijuana Legalization Nationwide, or be left behind and find new careers. Your choice.

Legalize Nationwide!

Every major poll in the nation shows A Solid Majority of Americans favor The Legalization of Marijuana Nationwide!

"Americans Favor Legalizing Marijuana Support surged 10 percentage points in past year""
http://www.gallup.com/poll/186260/back-leg…

"A solid majority of voters nationwide favor legalizing and regulating marijuana similar to the way alcohol and tobacco cigarettes are currently regulated. Most also dont believe it should be a crime for people to smoke marijuana in the privacy of their own homes"
http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_con…

"Americans favor making cannabis legal for adults, according to the findings of a CNN/ORC International survey released late Monday. The percentage is the highest ever reported by the survey, which has been tracking public opinion on the issue since 1973, and marks a 12 percentage point jump in support since the last time pollsters posed the question in 2012"

Re: “Foggy Forecast

The "War on Marijuana" has been a complete and utter failure. It is the largest component of the broader yet equally unsuccessful "War on Drugs" that has cost our country over a trillion dollars.

Instead of The United States wasting Billions upon Billions more of our yearly tax dollars fighting a never ending "War on Marijuana", lets generate Billions of dollars, and improve the deficit instead. It's a no brainer.

The Prohibition of Marijuana has also ruined the lives of many of our loved ones. In numbers greater than any other nation, our loved ones are being sent to jail and are being given permanent criminal records which ruin their chances of employment for the rest of their lives, and for what reason?

Marijuana is much safer to consume than alcohol. Yet do we lock people up for choosing to drink?

The government should never attempt to legislate morality by creating victim-less marijuana "crimes" because it simply does not work and costs the taxpayers a fortune.

Marijuana Legalization Nationwide is an inevitable reality that's approaching much sooner than prohibitionists think and there is nothing they can do to stop it!

Legalize Nationwide! Support Each and Every Marijuana Legalization Initiative!

Re: “Foggy Forecast

Marijuana consumers deserve and demand equal rights and protections under our laws that are currently afforded to the drinkers of far more dangerous and deadly, yet perfectly legal, widely accepted, endlessly advertised and even glorified as an All American pastime, alcohol.

Plain and simple!

Legalize Marijuana Nationwide!

Re: “Foggy Forecast

Inform tRump and the Republicans how they can personally make BILLIONS from marijuana sales and they will approve it in a heartbeat as a harmless intoxicant with healing properties.

When the ADA has non disclosed non titled entities. Taking control of the management and market of Arizona's medical marijuana market. Who's to say the cartels are not taking control of the market?

Re: “Burned Out

...and then the cartels will get all the business, thousands will lose their jobs at dispensaries and 30 states will lose their canna-tax revenues. BTW---Colorado generated $10 million last year. Gee, Jeff, that's a really great idea.
