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: “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.

Re: “Battle for the Bud

This is back to the congress funding the Rohrabacher-Farr amendment. Why is it we are not asking our representatives from Arizona their stance.

It can and must be the front issue on the midterm coming up. Arizona has 9 districts along with the pacific coast states Nevada, NM, CO that is total that is like 90 representatives. The eastern states that have medical and the US possessions congressional representatives there is another 70. This is enough to swing a majority to swing.

As it is now so much is being deleted, re-written, evaluated and arbitrated on so many fronts. In Having a representative such As McSally staying in the swamp keeping her head above water we need to find out if we have an effective tool there for our representative ? We should all send a letter of repeal of schedule 1 to our congressman. Raul Grijalva where is his stand ?

Does anyone really think with inflation around the corner, as rates rise, economy slows, fed cuts programs and funding. That the states with medical & recreational marijuana will take closure of a 25 billion cash flow for more debt to keep the failed drug war REALLY.

JUST A NOTE THE AVERAGE AGE DEMOCRAT IN CONGRESS IS 77

Re: “Reefer Round-Up

I have an idea !!!!
lets bash ridicule in every way imaginable. Republican, neo cons, conservatives, in every breath. Lets enlist the likes of daily stars Fitz and ask for understanding on how we need to hate and destroy his profiled citizenry for the sake of all humanity. Lets do this in a comedy scenario, so we can hide behind just kidding. I was referring to the irony LOL and you were duped there is the punch line. Let's get Jon Stewart and Comedy Central we can have all sorts of people to misquote and then attack. This will cause for consideration with US atty's NOT.

This need to be done, to get them to understand the Cannabis and Schedule one is moronic legislation. And the liberal left is the paragon of progressive governance. This can be done by untruthful Media reporting not on the considerations but on the reporting of the only feasible alternative. And what is the feasibility is what the existing governance is willing to except.

What I suspect is the wolf is in sheep clothing. This very Rastafarian dread locked, new age, progressive image being promoted is nothing more than a ruse. Nothing more than the like of promoting John Lennon as a humanist and Robert Kennedy. AS though a justice Leader ordering illegal wire taps and foreign assassinations. Time has finally revealed what the promoters can no longer profit from, so no reason to cover anymore.

I still have my Abbey Road, Help, White albums. I can still smoke run backwards on a turntable variable speed you wont believe what I can hear Trump forecast as the deliver of what was that now ????? lets play it again, roll another, The foundation of the majority of my generations understanding and we had kids.. To so many the biggest problem was finding enough tape for the corners of the Risk & Monopoly box to separate seeds and stems. Understanding this you can understand political Opinions in the Daily star

We see so much legislation this term on reigning in the civil seizure rules, claims, disbursements, uses, accounting procedures, curtailing all the abuses that have been happening we hope, but doubtful. Then we see so much on proposition rules and oversight. I firmly believe in my heart of heart that confiscated monies went into MPP to lobby for a rewrite of the state constitution with the smoke screen of legalization. If this happened and a request for a forensic audit is we cant comment on ongoing investigations.

At this point just who do you think is pushing leglization?

Re: “High Costs

I believe that the forces that are arbitrating lobbying prognosticating in favor of cannabis are solely aimed at legalization.

It appears that voices being heard now are those of disgust. I hear the constant rhetoric. How can Arizona be so backward not be progressive follow the studies of majority. It has to be conservative wacko religious rights thats the bag of disgust. Very willing to point them out, out them so to speak these are the paradigm that is the repressive force. This will certainly swing consideration for use and need the stoners side of reason.

Prop 205 did none of these of following the national majority on HOW. What prop 205 did was channel by Arizona constitution monies into enforcement make a golden goose shitting golden eggs willy nilly to education, prosecutors, makeup social studies and the counseling to go with it. Prop 205 was obscene like porno I cant describe it but I know it when I see it.

All of these issues and with the interstate trade of hemp and cannabis. As well as standards on how states will do business, banking and medical study along with other standards. All of this will fall into place with the repeal of schedule 1. This would place the entire protection of the Bill of Rights and the rest of the Constitution to all citizens. Access to court protections and reliefs of over burdensome regulations.

People just dont get it there is no other target but that repeal and if it takes a constitutional amendment repeal schedule 1 it and keep it there. As it is now state governments are building these little obscure raping machines called Cannabis control of some type. Handouts to governments who then raise regulation fees to get more handouts. All this does is keep and maintain the sigma of cannabis our modern day indentured servitude for it's use.

Just look At Ducey and the abuses of power to steer regulation authority to fund raisers on the Hemp something really stinks there. Off schedule 1 that whole is gone out of his control into national interstate trade. And this tea bagger stopped all regulation increases lets see who take control of the up coming Hemp.

Re: “Hemp Haters

In order for a overide the legislature would have to meet, in az they have a half time legislature so most are going home for legislative session has closed. This the reason AZ needs a fulltime legislature paid out of the marijuana dollars. The LDS CATHOLIC moral compass is having it,s last tilt off of true north this is the call to not look at the national headlines lets look HARD!! Our local represenatives if this is not promised then we need to send them home. Keep them poor they need us more

There is something stinky, talk about contributors MPP wont even disclose who their contributors were. I dont understand Adleson contributing a millon to defend his business with the existing MMJ law as opposed him trying to buy into by force the what he felt was extortion by the like of the junk bond salesman Holyoak and his BS prop 205. Unless Nick can list the expedures on both sides the argument is useless what the point ?

I am in Seattle right now come here often as well as Eugene. I can witness first hand and you want to see homeless issues Tucson is a paradise compared to this. So one thing nice is they don't pull the zoning BS where county gets to renegotiate if allowed while they take the tax dollars. Doing this from my phone sorry topos

Re: “Smoke Sessions

It appears so much need to be pandered too, hate we first must show who and what we dislike, our long term disgust must be stated before any work to make whats right is done.

I guess I missed the boat again. I didn't understand that boat only sailed to the destination of intolerance. In order to get passage one needs to disassociate and insult others. Then to go on board and work to get other on board that have not agreed in the past. This is working wonderfully a ship of fools my grandmother said.

Re: “Gauging the Ganja

Focus I can't agree more.
The question here is what is the product a flower, or a processed plant with additives refined oil ? Do you think as a consumer that since it is manufactured. That every bit of the finished product can be measured and tested as to strength and purity? Then that information is clearly printed 40%>60% so on.

I find it interesting that so many think the vap cartridge flavor is because of strain. It is the flavor added the unflavored might have trace but not discernible or be effective terpenes are added to the refined oil.
