Re: “Seeds of Conflict

Arizona has the worst rate for retention of ex employees of any state. The rehiring of retired any civil servant is simply stupid.

There is no company military or working government that does not replenish it's labor pool with young bright and given opportunity for advancement.

This is not the case in Arizona every retired educator police practitioner prosecutor will be clamoring for billing rights to MMJ monies. I would say we need young and growth so limit no civil servant retirees will be hired contracted consulted to be used by MMj monies invest in the future and the young.

Re: “Seeds of Conflict

New Mexico legalized by legislature. Exclusive grow and license permits but recommends and support community smoke lounges. If a community which is allowed to restrict use and sale then it will be excluded in the distribution of the tax revenues from Marijuana.

I read it as a way to combat the extreme alcohol related issues that plague the state. Tax revenues are given to primary education.

Illinois made anything under convictions 200 grams or under automatically expunged. Illinois does not use marijuana and the harshness of penalties to force plea bargains on other offences. Pima county has the highest of plea's per charge of any prosecutors office. Good Bye LaWall

SB1494 already is setting up the division in the department of Health Services. Ducey will give a constant unregulated funding source through this department.

Producer buy of bad products like USDA crop insurance paid by the user. Producers that ship to other states will be paid for testing and bad product reimbursement by this slush fund being set up.

Storage of product to keep highest product cost or donation of product and write off to be destroyed to keep highest cost.
No accounting of gift donations uses or contributors or cap.
This bogus board of billing bafoons want to divert monies for addiction while turning it's back on the most addictive products sold alcohol and tobacco. Want to give 40% to police for training and education now there's a fleecing " I was being educated on how to train"

Re: “Democrat Kathy Hoffman Is Arizona Republicans' Enemy Number One

Frances, perfect comment and very true. They are baffled that she actually is educated and knows what she is doing.

Re: “Democrat Kathy Hoffman Is Arizona Republicans' Enemy Number One

A wonderful person who is killing it in this office!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Many folks in AZ have no idea what that means. It is such a foreign concept to actually have a qualified person in a political job, A job that takes an experienced, on point, educated professional that is ACTUALLY trained and ACTUALLY able to do the ACTUAL job they were appointed to do.

Re: “Harmony and Twang

Loved this beautiful story. I grew up on Lew King and remember Jack Curtis (VIP, Spyders). Brian, every story you tell is golden. I loved your tales even before Bill Blake started writing columns in New Times.

She is doing a great job. If Betsy DeVos, Cathi Herrod, Kelly Townsend, and Finchem dont like her, she must be doing the perfect job. Keep her forever.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Trump's Turkey Letter

definition of hippocracy establishment liberals were against iraq war and syria (except war mongers who voted for iraq war for political gain. anybody care to name those liberals who voted for iraq war so they could run for president!) and now they are for keeping troops all over the middle east. progressives like myself and tulsi gabbard were against them then and now.

Re: “A Blogger's Credo

"When there is a gap between one's real and one's declared aims, one turns as it were instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms, like a cuttlefish squirting out ink. In our age there is no such thing as 'keeping out of politics.' All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred, and schizophrenia." --George Orwell, Politics and the English Language, 1946

Re: “Seeds of Conflict

It may be better for the legislature to do this, but they won't. I believe that only in Illinois did a legislature step forward; the others were done by initiative. Heck, the AZ Legislature couldn't even ban cockfighting.

Re: “Seeds of Conflict

All laws, whether by legislation, or initiative, have unintended consequences, and need tweaking. The problem with a citizen's initiative such as this, is that it, for the most, would be unfixable by the legislature.
IMHO, this is something that should be done by legislation rather than by initiative.

I have no skin in this game, however, because as a CCP holder, I am forbidden the use.
