Re: “Prop. 64 Rolls Out New Ads, No on 64 Touts Unfavorable New Poll

The words "Process" and "Processing" go undefined in Prop 64. Please FIX! Prop 64 says that it's legal to PROCESS up to 8 grams of cannabis concentrates. What does PROCESS mean?

Re: “California’s Best Hash Venerated, Vaped at Chalice Awards

I had a fellow classmate in nursing school that survived childhood cancer. She received a bone marrow transplant with her brother as a donor 25 years ago. She has graft-versus-host disease and cardiac issues. These health issues caused her nursing school timeline to be longer than the 2 years of our ADN program. I keep her story filed away in my memory and whenever I meet a survivor, I remember to ask about all of those toxicities that we tell our patients about and let the doctor know that this could be the underlying reason. I agree that patients are under-educated about their treatment, even today. Working the in ER setting, I came across many oncology patients that had no clue what they were receiving. there is something extraordinary we now find out about, it has been helping fighting cancers, pains and other deadly diseases. most of us know much about Cannabis oil while most of us don't, for your cannabis and medical consultation try and get in touched with us on this email.(Hzamcannabis.CA@yahoo.com) there is nothing to fear about, once you explain to us about it, we get in touch with you as soon as possible. Hzamcannabis.CA@yahoo.com also share this with friends and families.

Re: “Expert: You Don't Have to Be a State Resident to Get Medical Marijuana In California Right Now

Not only do I have a doctors recommendation with an out of state ID, but am now a business owner for the legal and taxable sale of medical marijuana in the state of California and legally provide patients with mmj.
It's so funny, yet sad (therein lies the tragedy) to go into a dispensary and be turned away because of my out of state ID only to turn around set up an appt with the owner to become a VENDOR for them...
The irony is so thick I couldn't even vape it

@ Leif Bierer: You're *joking*, right?! Transferring--sale, sharing, etc--*any* quantity of weed--even passing a joint--to *anybody*, including those poor "disabled veterans" you're *all* about, is presently a *felony* outside of a medical collective/cooperative; after 64, sharing up to an ounce between any other adult is completely legal, and over an ounce is only a misdemeanor!

Seriously, you tools really ought to look this stuff up *before* you post it ... !

As someone who's life has been so impacted positively by CBD Oil with a skosh of THC, I'm encouraged that these issues are being addressed.

Re: “Prop. 64 Rolls Out New Ads, No on 64 Touts Unfavorable New Poll

@Lief Bierer

Prop 64 improves things exponentially for everyone, including patients. - Most people exaggerate the small protection given by Prop 215. It does not make marijuana possession legal, and does not prevent ticketing arrest and jail. - It is ONLY an affirmative defense that can be used in court after you are arrested and it may or may not work.

Prop 64 ends all illegality of one ounce of marijuana and six plants growing in the home. That changes everything. It will cause the police not to care or be interested in anyone's marijuana.

As for disabled, needy veterans, under Prop 64, you can give any adult over 21 up to an ounce also. I'm sure there are plenty of people - in the industry and out - who would happily fill that need.

@miles Monroe I'll name one, how about donating cannabis to a disabled veteran that can't grow his own medicine?

Re: “Prop. 64 Rolls Out New Ads, No on 64 Touts Unfavorable New Poll

@DankDave the Deceiver

lol - It's so easy to debunk your lies. - You should take your own advice. From BallotPedia:

>>>"Revenue from the two taxes would be deposited in a new California Marijuana Tax Fund. First, the revenue would be used to cover costs of administrating and enforcing the measure. Next, it would be distributed to drug research, treatment, and enforcement, including:[1]

$2 million per year to the UC San Diego Center for Medical Cannabis Research to study medical marijuana.
$10 million per year for 11 years for public California universities to research and evaluate the implementation and impact of Proposition 64. Researchers would make policy-change recommendations to the California Legislature and California Governor.
$3 million annually for five years to the Department of the California Highway Patrol for developing protocols to determine whether a vehicle driver is impaired due to marijuana consumption.
$10 million, increasing each year by $10 million until settling at $50 million in 2022, for grants to local health departments and community-based nonprofits supporting "job placement, mental health treatment, substance use disorder treatment, system navigation services, legal services to address barriers to reentry, and linkages to medical care for communities disproportionately affected by past federal and state drug policies."
The remaining revenue would be distributed as follows:[1]

60 percent to youth programs, including drug education, prevention, and treatment.
20 percent to prevent and alleviate environmental damage from illegal marijuana producers.
20 percent to programs designed to reduce driving under the influence of marijuana and a grant program designed to reduce negative impacts on health or safety resulting from the proposition.

Re: “Prop. 64 Rolls Out New Ads, No on 64 Touts Unfavorable New Poll

@Deborah Tharp: Name one offense--just *one*--that's a felony or misdemeanor under Prop 64 that isn't already now, because we can name *several* offenses that are felonies or misdemeanors now that are completely legal under 64!

Re: “Prop. 64 Rolls Out New Ads, No on 64 Touts Unfavorable New Poll

@Dave Armstrong: Your "most federally conforming law in the nation" didn't prevent over 15,000 people, disproportionally black and brown--which you're *not*, right Dave?--from being arrested for weed related felonies and misdemeanors in California last year; Prop 64 will cut that number in *at least* half, based on the experience of the other legal states and DC, not to mention that the mere *claim* "I smell marijuana" by a cop will no longer give him carte blanche to detain, search, seize suspected drug money, etc, etc.

Its where the people go--not to jail anymore--that matters; where the money goes--not *your* pockets anymore, right Dave?--is a distant second, at best.

Stop calling prop 64 legalization. It's criminalization, fees and fines

Re: “Prop. 64 Rolls Out New Ads, No on 64 Touts Unfavorable New Poll

Dave,
I think you need to read it. Tax revenue will go to important state needs, not to "corrupt corporate cannabis cronies", but I like that alliteration.

Re: “Prop. 64 Rolls Out New Ads, No on 64 Touts Unfavorable New Poll

The law we have now (Prop. 215) is the most federally conforming law in the nation. If we we're following it properly there would not be the problems we have today. Blame this on our own state and local governments for misleading and misguiding us to form unlawful entities just so they can "Cash in on our Use"! Prop. 64 does NOT put money into the much needed and necessary infrastructure it puts the money into the hands of the corrupt corporate cannabis cronies and their shills! Maybe the spokesman should read all 62 pages of the measure and find out for himself rather than just collecting a paycheck for once again misleading and misguiding the people!

If I were going to vote for Trump, I wouldn't do so because of the militant believer Pence. Hemp has been a long hard road in the US, and we don't need to sabotage our attempts now.

Re: “Snoop Dogg, Too $hort Endorse California Marijuana Legalization in New Video

Some of you are thinking short-term. California needs to legalize in order to send a message to the world, legalization is the next step. Cannabis is plant and therefore like all plant you have the choice of getting you vegetables at a local independent farm or you can buy the same plant from a corporation, the difference is who you are supporting. (buying it from)

I will be buying from independent farms no matter the size, only the quality.

Re: “Anti-Legalizers Sue California Over Prop 64 Ballot Language

Proposition 64 is a death knell to the farmers of the Emerald Triangle, their families and the communities who depend on this, the last industry standing after the collapse of the logging, lumber and fishing industries. In Prop 64’s despotic future, farmers & growers are forced to pay taxes before they sell their harvest. A medium sized farm that produced 400 pounds of buds & leaves would have a tax bill of over $60,000 and for the first time ever taxes have to be paid before any sales are allowed.”

Proposition 64’s insidious plan institutes controls that treat cannabis as a dangerous substance, and not as a medicine. It does all it can to force users to return to the dark and hide their use. The chant, “Out of the Dark and into the Light” reflecting overcoming the long time stigma of cannabis use will be replaced by laws that make it a crime to smoke outside where someone could see you or smell cannabis smoke. Smoking outside, even where cigarettes are allowed, is forbidden and the homeless, including homeless veterans who smoke cannabis to treat their PTSD will be committing a crime, subjected to fines and even jail if they are unable to pay. There will be no more smoking cannabis at an outdoor concert or other events. It will be like the "Bad Old Days” when law enforcement waded into crowds to arrest people for smoking a joint. This time they will be wading in handing out tickets resulting in fines.

This is not legalization it is domination, extreme controls, massive regulation and taxation without representation. The Official Libertarian Party Executive Committee has it right when they advise a NO Vote on 64 because it, “does more harm than good, damaging medical availability, and creating additional criminal offenses and regulations.”
