Re: “Sinister Substitutes

If republicans would simply let us legalize marijuana in the first place, then we wouldn't need flawed initiatives like prop 205.
Yes, it's really that simple.
BTW, the main reason that marijuana is still illegal is that if you do legalize it, then you can also grow hemp. Hemp could replace tree pulp for making paper, largest paper company owner...Koch indust. It could also make cheaper, less toxic plastic, largest oil refiner for plastic....Koch Indust. Same for synthetic fabrics, biofuels, lotions...all interfere with Koch profits. Then, there's the law enforcement- imprisonment industry that donated so heavily to Ducey's campaign.
No, pot being illegal has nothing to do with getting high.

Re: “Sinister Substitutes

The ethic level of the people in the Marijuana business. This includes the Dispensaries their suppliers and the whole of MPP are void of anykind of ethics. it is laughable that ethic's are being used as a barometer of trust here. MPP wont list their contributors but Insys has to being a public company. Think on that for a a second.

While the company Insys has very questionable and illegal practices. As well as being sued using accounting and financial disclosure policies that are required for public companies. All of these protections are void in any state that has legal marijuana.

Some are of the opinion that huge multi state conglomerates and foreign investors are the way to combat the same. But wait a huge Multi state marijuana conglomerate they would be working for compassion and mercy for the patient. Is this not the same BS line Insys plays.

Prop 205 FAILED because it would have made a huge multi-state rouge police force that changed the Arizona constitution completely. Used the funds to allow only a few to the market (insys)
Would have set it self as a tax collecting, law enforcing, exempt of corporate, banking, criminal prosecution as per AZ constitution change. NO OTHER STATE LEGALIZED THE WAY PROP 205 ATTEMPTED.

Some find it interesting that That the legislature in HB2447 that passed overwhelming the deposits of RICO monies into a Az attorney general acct and strict controls on how it is dispersed. I have in my mind no doubt that Pima County RICO as well as other county monies went into MPP attempt. Ethic yea well as well as disclosure on all contributors to out of state PAC's.
