Re: “Guest Opinion

Pima does fund the county in the same way any other county funds their departments. Just where and how the other county gets funding was not conveniently mentioned. How many other county turned down federal monies. The Sheriff has taken on much more costs burden than the 1.9765% annual you have generously provided over the last 10 years. Probably does not cover the retire hire backs pension and wage increases for all jail, bailiff, constable, infrastructure, capitol investments. Is that a great job Sharon dont think so

Re: “Concentration Complication

This is interesting like California the state tax how applied. So much for he flower and a different rate for the parts and pieces. This story excluded on the parts and pieces and focuses on the flower.

Then lets not forget to what goes into flower. Lower parts of the plant in quality and presentation, that dont look presentable as well as shake after packaging process. All of this should be accounted as parts and pieces at a lower tax rate. As it appears now all want the most out of the crop report all as flower. Then being taxed the higher rate when they should be taxed on the overburden rate.

As California is finding out this is where the skim can and will happen. I have no doubt the amount of flower it take to make viable medicine. The stain and extraction methods, environmental mishaps all of these come to play on supplying viable concentrates. which is why it needs to be open national markets with the repeal of schedule one.

If we are going to use concentrates and prescribe them in dosages then they need to be consistent. Not regulated to just produced in this state, if we are going to use this and go down this road then we owe it to the patient to get the best available CA, WA, OR ,PA DE,

So let me get a bunch of half the piece sign here.
lets say all produced product had to be tested, separated for quality and intended use, extracted by processor on site processed oil and flower then returned to retailer for sale. When the retailer packager edible maker pick up their product the tax is collected at the time. This could be and should be administered by the AZ agricultural department.

Re: “Martha McSally Is Not Endorsing Donald Trump, So You Can Stop Asking About It

As far as lie cheating what happened to all the primary in 2008. Where the DNC threw out all of the votes in Florida, Michigan, Ohio. Giving out Obama the nomination. Look at the primaries of this election who voted and if they did what did it matter.

These previous posts now tell me who todays Archie Bunkers are. Is this our system, mad because the Democrats have done a well terrible shit job in managing. Fixed elections hide administrative directions and point fingers. Finger pointing gives bad media a purpose and reason. And media always goes for the buck to slant corony capitalism to if you have a cause media have a support group. All make money for media who's brand of soap do you use is it green ?

Re: “Martha McSally Is Not Endorsing Donald Trump, So You Can Stop Asking About It

I would ask Rep McSally about the Pacific Trade Deals. In our geographic location it has impact. I would ask Rep McSally what she might with engineering standards and federal oversight on Nat'l Forest land use in the west. Thats is what we need in this next congress. That is what southern AZ needs is someone who knows what when to look for.

If Trump wins the Election Trump will have to assemble a cabinet and relations with the new congress. Trump will have to seek out the smartest most knowledgeable. For Southern Arizona Rep. McSally is in a good position to negotiate for her district.

Question is do you trust her ability to deal in that congress for southern AZ ? I do and feel good to have that voice in congress representing southern Arizona.

Re: “DCCC Links McSally and Other House Republicans to Trump in Early Air War Sortie

Just a follow up lets ask Martha McSally what her opinion bogus intentionally altered Scientific Data. This was done by a government office USGS Scientific. It has been happening for 2 decades concerning the Kaibab and all along the Colorado river. It was this data that Raul Grijalva used when he tried to grab so much of Northern AZ.

We need to break up the Congressional District 1. To where the Tucson Congressional Representative has congressional oversight over the Nogales port. Raul has been instrumental in shifting transportation of all freight through the Port entry of San Luis.
