Re: “Dispensary Distribution

lets look at 205 we can do whatever we want. Since it is a state special amendment to the state constitution.

let's ask the legislature to step and recognize changes in the state statutes let add them as a subcategory with special address and concerns, to this new found department

What cant have your cake an eat it too. They should not have special state protections with out following state commerce. So they are a special and deserve special legislation let's give it to them

They can't incorporate, Strictly sole proprietors. No special protections such as trusts, holding entities and out of state ownership.
All properties holdings and license will be under Arizona law. Since it is federally illegal Arizona will not recognize any entity or person that are not full time residence of Arizona.
All license and property holders must be citizens of the US. Full disclosure of all principal parties of those not more than 25% can be out of state residence or non US citizen.
One person cannot own more than one dispensary and can not be sold to another dispensary agent or parties must be sold on random lottery.

I mean really these guys are not in it for the care and help. It is pure greed at this point. They have allowed ambiguous terms like
"NOT WITH STANDING" to allow Ducey's Administrator to decide what in Arizona prevails.
I say vote no on 205 allowing for distribution does not allow for a whole rewrite of right to the constitution that only changes enforcement and administrative powers. while increasing the criminal and civil penalties.

Re: “Dispensary Distribution

Get a clue it is the "BLACK MARKET" no federal protections and a rouge government to banking and distribution system this is the foundation of redistributed "Black Markets"

We see now with the sheriff's department see huge pile of cash and it is up to administrators to distribute. The only reason to have this Marijuana regulatory department is to gather and distribute monies while protecting an exclusive industry/government.

What is Marijuana Department of license and controls. what it will be is it's own government insulated by the AZ constitution and ratified by the voter. It will have basically no oversight in accounting or procedures.

With prop 205 we will soon call Juarez our sister city. I think the producers are putting additives into the pot to dummify the user into this. Since there is no testing standards no oversight these guys are running a muck.

Re: “Presidential Potential

Growing plants for personal use should be anonymous.

There should be no reason to register a plant unless prior mishandlings and one loses the privilege to grow at home or any home that you occupy/residence that has growing in that residence.

The Marijuana Regulating Authority will keep a database on restricted persons are not allowed plants or seeds just like Alcohol the campaign slogan right!

Re: “Presidential Potential

According to section 36-2856 3. Localities could only restrict smoking or production if it was "injurious to the environment or otherwise is a nuisance to a considerable number or persons" I don't see how a localotie could make people register to grow their 6 personal plants with that.

Re: “Presidential Potential

Does anyone understand if you sign up to grow at your residence it is quite possible that with today's visual maps. On all LEO computers when looking at a map that the addresses that have licenses appear in green strips. Well watching a child go into one of these highlighted addresses would constitute a possible felony?

Would that Be a wrong analogy? One is to think just what are we voting for with existing agencies they have in place rules and restrictions that would apply across the board.

Re: “Presidential Potential

If you ask or listen to any of these questions asked to Arizona Political Director for the Marijuana Policy Project, Carlos Alfaro. His response is

"That"s up to the rules committee but I doubt that is the intent"

Vote for this a sucker, living in a suckers reality, talking about being suckered, and what being suckered for decades has done, talking about what a sucker needs to exist. Can't figure that not all hands are helpings

Re: “Presidential Potential

let's take a minute just to ponder some of the ramifications to prop 205. I will take the easiest single one the 6 plant rules to be made. With some of the provisions in the prop allowing some areas to restrict home growing. Just how would that come to be regulated ?

1- To grow your own regulations would mean accounting for people that are growing a registration of sorts.
2- This would include a license/fee for a tag.
3- Registering for a tag you will sign an affidavit stating that you are growing and have it in a concealed/contained.
4- Following regulations you will state no minor children
5- Will have to list all occupants of the home.
6-Will open information on license holders and occupants of the home. To third party vendors mortgage/ins companies zoning authorities etc. etc. No medical protections of privacy are gone.
7- Will ask that all compliance officers be licensed in good standing with the Department of Public Safety be law enforcement.
8- When signing this affidavit you will be forfeiting your right of warrant search.
9- Board can and will deputize all DPS Law enforcement to access it's data base like DMV. I needed can call a compliance officer and gain entry any time of day or night no warrant no nothing.
10- Upon entry for compliance accompanied by a LEO. Might notice a grandchild while grandma as a few plants in the basement under lock and key. BOOM INSTANT 3 FELONIES AND 1 A CLASS 3
11- A home growing has a acquaintance arranged to visit by LEO goes inside and bang here is compliance with a warrantless search.
12- If other LEO agencies they will be able to bill the MDLC for service to assist.
13- One can be fined by the administrative div of MDLC like DMV. Following non compliance with agreement when obtaining a license/tag
14 -Tag will have a date and time limit if it dies to bad you should go to the dispensary in the first place. won't be allowed to clone

With all of this is why they threw in the 6 plant rule at the 11 hr. Who would want to jeopardize themselves to all that by admitting they grow. So they do it without registration then that is way past simple posession manufacturing posession weight. This just all promotes not to grow not worth the risk and costs

This is the kind of stink that has been going on for years.
Voting for prop 205 just says yea we need more stigmatize citizens.

With Arizona being a laboratory of experimental study and to do it they are now second class citizens not covered by Bill of Rights. today's "Jim Crow Law"

Just why are MPP and Holyoak so obtuse on what rules are ?
Sorta of like there are parts of this contract that will be filled out later. And to think some think this is good for the people and sign that.

And to give up all of those rights of a citizen so you can grow 6 plants. The board can even limit strains and check for compliance if caught growing out of permitted strain felonies.

Re: “Presidential Potential

My concern about approving this new law is that there are pages of "legalese" I don't understand, especially about the opponents to this change in law. The proposed law seems to involve creating two new agencies in state government. Is this an opportunity to add an additional layer of law enforcement that Ducey could turn into his much wanted "Border Police?"

Re: “Prop 205: Let’s Make a Deal

The prohibition factions would love nothing more than defeat this initiative. The squabbling between pro marijuana factions are what they want. Only the big headlines matter. We can work the details out later. This is what has hampered CA from legalizing the past election cycles. Only progress and national headlines matter.

Re: “Prop 205: Let’s Make a Deal

So we are going to let the states, the "States of Deplorables" be the guinea pigs watch to see what happens.

Simple; Threats from the Justice Department on each state enforced by the DEA. Absolutely no protections for state to state trade, no protections on banking rules and oversight, no FDA protections on possible contaminates, no regulations like tobacco. No legal grounds in federal court for anything it is simply illegal.

This is wait and see how it goes WTF !!! I dont support trump but I will vote against this kind of garbage see how it fucking goes WTF a state of deplorables.

Don't be so sure. Just look what the Affordable Card Act has done to health insurance. Five billion dollars in losses the first year. That Bill wasn't perfect either. Get your head out of the smoke, toker.

Re: “Prop 205: Let’s Make a Deal

Who wins are the people themselves. This man neglects to mention that each person over 21 has the right to grow six plants, which, if you are smart and time your crops and know your product and invest your time, is plenty. No bill will ever be perfect, and the people reading this article and the local propaganda are losing touch. Why don't you read the bill and stop reading someone else's speculation? Hey, you can stop reading this commentioned now and smoke a nice bong or joint.

Re: “Prop 205: Let’s Make a Deal

Chelsea Clinton speaks on marijuana:

During a speech at the Youngstown State University in Ohio last weekend, Chelsea Clinton said that there is new evidence to suggest that marijuana could be fatally interacting with other drugs.

"But we also have anecdotal evidence now from Colorado, where some of the people who were taking marijuana for those purposes, the coroner believes, after they died, there was drug interactions with other things they were taking," she said when asked about Hillary Clinton's position on marijuana research.

Chelsea Clinton's spokeswoman added that the Democratic nominee "has said we should allow states that have reformed their marijuana laws to act as laboratories...

Re: “Prop 205: Let’s Make a Deal

Here is the Debate Between Maricopa County attorney Bill Montgomery and MPP & Holyoak on prop 205.

I will have to give some considerations to Bill as when he speaks he represents on how authority acts and represents itself. Bill words can reflect in current ongoing litigation on hundreds of avenues.

Holyoak does not have that burden and is not responsible for anything really but let's get this going to so how it looks.

This debate has been broken up and editorialized to just a few sound bites this is it in the entirety. If you are really concerned watch it. You will see the stories 90% of the marijuana convictions are for posession simply just not true. Just what liability does Arizona Political Director for the Marijuana Policy Project, Carlos Alfaro have to lose ? nothing he gets paid either way he is a political hack.

The debate;
