Re: “Crop Circles

So if our aid interests foreign, out of state, or big market big business, Profits are managed by outside interests and the old stand by consulting fees.

So here is the question Whats the point if the dispensary is Veteran, minority, disabled ,woman owned? If they dont control the business profits or management.

What is happening here is these unwitting are being duped. This is quite simple if a person entity controls that is given on a limited lottery basis.

Then the license should go up for reissue on a lottery basis as it did originally. The only thing to be sold is the physical assets not the license. As well as no dispensary can represent no more than 2% of the licenses issued in business license form or as trustees in any other dispensary.

Just another issue for the legislature to address is the non disclosure of nonprofits.

Re: “Double Drought

Interesting paradox on the continuing to the perils of schedule one and limiting interstate trade. ( CALL YOUR CONGRESS PERSON COMPLAIN) Washington has allowed for state to state trade have an abundant supply.

A curious thought how well does a stoner do at slots/craps/cards as apposed to a inebriated player ? I wonder if they pass out vap pens for players ?

Can grandma or the Asian do as well with infused brownies. I bet the buffet lines would be packed no longer free need for increase in size.

Ouch the porno industry would feel a huge impact. the male drunk bravado stiffened a little. Going from yea baby I want some of that, to come on sweetheart sit down and chill, awhile take a toke let's see if there's a vibe.

Will Casinos have a no use employment policy? Dealers and pit crew need to be tested ? I can just see the Blackjack dealer slowing down like that will happen. I love craps have done well and real bad too. Play to step up to the able side or rolling dont thinks so. I would rather stay in chill with the babes wine and cheese.

Now that I am thinking of it no pot why go to Vegas ? Yea think there is residual unestimated intended market shifts with legalization. Who is now in competition marketed compulsive behavior of Vegas. Gaming Entertainment Marriage, Indulgence markets are all down. Seems like as America is turning to self medication and the chaff are suffering from it.

So this is the culmination of MPP's success in Nevada. A huge " TO BE DETERMINED" (TBD). So now they have a existing state liquor board doing the administration of the market. Like all the other states that have legalized. First quarter sales and estimate projections transient population from gaming hard to estimate. Lets see how this plays out. It will be a lot better than having a state department with it's own court, unregulated police force with no warrant authority. Like Arizona's Orwellian prop 205 approach.

Re: “Breaking the Bank

For all of the one world order tye dyed, hair farming, Birkenstock wearing, face pierced body illustrated community that so many embrace here. As well as taking the position that they represent the LBGT community with progressive ideals of a utopia and nirvana.

Grow a layer of skin for gods sake. Trump is in the drives set trying to take him out is ridiculous as is much of your positions. We have a common ground to give all some freedoms. We have a collective force to allow Marijuana into our culture that has been here since time. It is called a constitutional amendment.

McSally is venerable needs support her base is to narrow.Her understanding impact in congress is important look at her committees and ongoing work in committee assignments is impressive. ASK FOR ENDORSEMENT OF AN AMENDMENT TO REPEAL SCHEDULE 1

Ask Raul but he always has his hand out to siphon that is why he would not support off schedule 1 no room to siphon.

Re: “Breaking the Bank

Very well written explanation of the prejudices and exploitation to self determination. Thanks, Nick Meyers;

I see where the federal government is allowing those with quantified medical need benefits to continue and embrace.

I recently witnessed a elderly person just reaching 62 by necessity of hard labor for over 40 years paid into SS all those years. The SS office gave retirement but ask him to apply for Disability. When the review of medical records and a interview it was awarded within months. This is what the program was for in the first place.

This is the issue when apply for disability was revealed as compounded Cannabis use primarily for spastic nerve response from injuries as well as pain associated with quick muscle jerks.

So with keeping the cannabis on the schedule 1 this person live in a limbo! A total fear now that disability can be cut off with just a quick administrative pen. Carrying cash in a electronic transfer world.

This citizen that has contributed for over 40 years to the community has no legal redress for wrongs. The supreme court of AZ ruled that that the Cannabis is on the federal schedule 1 list you can not be personally legally counseled on how to obtain cannabis. So am I to understand that a business can get counsel on what the court ruled illegal?

So now this citizen as thousands in just Tucson alone are left without the federal protections promised to every citizen.
1- ability to redress issues in a court
2-safe reliable product controls by the FDA
3- protection of seizure of property stop benefits is that
4-safe reliable electronics transfers
5-ability to register regiments treatments therapies
6- lock out of interstate commerce
7-protects that medications & therapies that have been proven are solid and cant be just quickly changed in a closed committee we need an constitutional amendment correcting wrongs. like the 21'st did of the prohibition we need security. The beast has grown bigger than the problem. The DEA has implemented the Volstead in parts this agency need to be blended into HLS it is rouge it is dark it is wrong in so many way the rights dont equal.

Give these seniors and all other security so not to live in fear is that not the first order of government ?

Incidentally the 6.5 billion industry is a cash influx through residual vessel that are tax collected is close to triple.

And my bet is Ducey is holding out on legalization to have a heavy burden to pay the retirement of police and fire which is in BAD shape. And one big apple is the agricultural licensing of hemp with heavy license and administrative fees paid into an account of labor for past wrongs. Just think off schedule 1 all this to leverage goes away for so many to siphon off the flow.

Re: “Campus Criminals

All drug laws are racist in origin and in execution, why don't the pigs in power recognize this? Follow the greed and the inherent bigotry. No one has the right to tell you how to live your life. Either we're a free people or slaves to the Nazis in power.

Re: “Reefer Round-Up

Medical Marijuana has been life changing for so many and has potential for helping many more control symptoms of several conditions where other drugs did little to help or have a risk of addiction. Until 6 months ago I never used it, however I always felt it was something that could help a lot of people and so have voted in favor of it. After years of different medications that did very little to help me I tried it 6 months ago for severe anxiety and pain. I finally felt relief with no side effects. I wish I could afford to use it rather than prescriptions that have side effects I have a hard time with.

I knew a few people that smoked pot at 18, 20 yrs old. 30 years later they continue to lead very productive lives and still smoke a little to unwind.

People will continue to use it. I would rather money go to our country and not drug cartels.

Re: “Campus Criminals

Medical Marijuana has been life changing for so many and arresting someone in a case such as this is absurd!

Re: “Battle for the Bud

I am a CPA who has given multiple seminars on the marijuana industry, including the accounting and taxation thereof.

In late April, I laid out the legislation needed to fix this problem, even the wording needed to exempt state legal businesses from the provisions of IRC 280(e), and also from the purview of other Federal Agencies such as ATF, etc. But, leaving those provisions in place as tools against the cartels and other major players. I asked Congresswoman McSally to forward to the proper committees.

Congresswoman McSally's office has not responded. I have also sent her correspondence concerning the Civil Forfeiture issue. Again, no response.

What frustrates me the most about this is that I have been a diehard supporter of hers, both financially and otherwise, since her first run for Congress.
