"Federal Supremacy" folks occurs when state laws directly conflict with federal law like the CSA! NO state law can legalize "selling" and "profiting" from a controlled substance and the transactions involved! What's been happening here in California is a travesty of justice and a conspiracy of money hungry law makers and greedy for-profit corporations misleading and misguiding us ALL in order to "profit" from our personal choice of medicine! You see since current state law doesn't specifically say we can "sell" and "profit" from marijuana they want to rewrite it so it says we can and that will make what they've been doing for years unlawfully lawful in the future! NO one is currently following state law as is was meant to be followed because the state didn't and doesn't explain the facts and the truth properly to individuals and organizations! Why you may ask, well they can't tax lawful business activities where NO transfer of ownership or "sale" occurs but they can tax unlawful business activities! They made the "Compassionate Use Act" the "Cash in on our Use Act" turning compassion into compensation just so they can "sin tax" what should be tax free medicine like prescribed medicine and produce! Marijuana is our #1 cash crop and they want a piece of the pie and because marijuana is a controlled substance and recommended not prescribed they think we're just stupid stoners that will let them TAX the hell out of our personal choice of mother natures finest cure! Wake up people and smell the cannabis before these lawmakers and for-profit corporations pull the wool over our eyes even further! The laws we have now coexist and coincide with federal laws and if followed properly protect us from outrageous taxation and the potential of federal prosecution so why let them turn it all upside down so we can continue to be fleeced out of our money for what God put on this planet to heal us and make us happy! This is ALL about money folks so read up, educate yourselves and vote NO to the corporate capitalist trying to continue to mislead and misguide us simply so the can make money from a plant that can and will save America and the world!

I am inspired by this post to make our world better as drugs ruin lives of thousands of people every year and I reckon we should struggle to get rid of such a dangerous plant. Turn to http://customwriting-s.com/ to get more info.
Some folks see the data I posted below and think it is false. They type angry replies and call me a liar. They say I'm just making it all up. They can't believe that if these numbers are correct, our government would still prohibit cannabis consumption. Yet my data is taken direct from the US Government's own Center for Disease Control website. I ask these angry folks to check my numbers for themselves and get back to me with any errors they find, then I never hear back. Franky I'm as shocked as those folks who get angry when they see the numbers.
Figures from the Center for Disease Control on numbers of deaths per year in the USA:
* Prescription Drugs: 237,485 + 5000 traffic fatalities
* Tobacco: 390,323
* Alcohol: 88,013 + 16,000 traffic fatalities
* Cocaine: 4,906
* Heroin: 7,200
* Aspirin: 466
* Acetaminophen (Tylenol): 179
* Marijuana: 0, none, not a single fatal overdose in all medical history and almost no traffic problems by comparison to prescription drugs and alcohol.
So, which is safer ???? Legalize, regulate and TAX!
I asked Mel Sembler The night before last, why he thought an 85-year-old man should be shaping the future of the state of Florida?, And he replied smugly "because I can " he and his evil wife Betty must be stopped they must be put in their place we must not let 85-year-old oxygenarians shape the future of this great state! People rise up against these evil people.
The auma is bad and I have 100,000 people voting no based on my opinion
"That’s not true."
Great to see a newspaper actively refereeing a debate and educating its readership instead of just transcribing quotes. I'm new to the area and extremely very by the EBE.
Where is the IPO? Scam. Pure and simple. Shame on you Steve. You did all of us a major disservice with this distraction. And now, we get AUMA...
Patrick, CCHI is a fool's practice and will never happen. It was first introduced in 1990 and has failed to make the ballot in every election cycle since then, it's time to accept that it isn't gonna happen and move on. AUMA still allows you to grow your own while also allowing for unlimited possession limits at home and onsite consumption lounges, that is legal to me and everyone else I know. Prop 215 has done good things, but the unregulated status quo has caused problems and DEA raids, who said that they would return if a tightly regulated structure for cannabis isn't put into place in California. MMRSA and AUMA are the results of that, the nationwide movement towards ending prohibition cannot afford a loss in California this November, that is exactly what the prohibitionists want and all you're doing is siding with them and helping them get what they want.
Will the the measure prohibit employers (public and private) from disqualifying prospective applicants from employment? And will it also prohibit employers (public and private) from testing for marijuana usage?
Everyone country wide should chip in a few bucks to AUMA. I did. It's easy and quick. You don't even need to punch in a credit card number, just use PayPal. Visit their website. I'm not affiliated with the group and I don't even live in California.
"They have the money and we have the facts" states the anti legalization coalition. They forgot to add "they have the will of the people in a free democracy".
@fuvkyou, Also illegal because without proper accounting they could be diluting value out of the company for themselves and essentially stealing from investors.
One can hope this will not affect the small grower.

While I was the first to expose MJNA in Salon as a pump and dump, I have to defend Hemp Inc. They bought the largest decorator in N. America and a big building in NC to process hemp into dozens of different products. They have spent a fortune setting up the plant and it's about ready to produce. Bruce has financed local farmers to replace tobacco crops with hemp and knef. Stock proceeds have gone to finance these projects and a major animal sanctuary that is up and running. Not to mention that Bruce has been a major supporter of the Silver Tour (teaching seniors about med mj) , veterans rights groups and a host of other worthwhile causes. I avoided doing business with him for years, but Hemp Inc is a very real company that can lead the hemp revolution in America and Bruce has put his heart and soul into making that happen.
Hemp is not pot you fucktard of an author. People like you are the reason that it's more difficult than it should be to differentiate the two. I expected more of someone who writes for a marijuana journal. Bruce Perlowin is a dick.
Interesting quote from Troy Dayton. It appears that he is available on the Cannabis Expert Calling Network (ECN) for (paid) phone calls. A good way to get direct advice: https://cannabis.expertcallingnetwork.com/troydayton
This is just another shinning example of corporate greed and them taking advantage of ignorant people mislead and misguided by their own government! Until federal law says you can "sell" and "profit" from cannabis, marijuana or hemp then NO one can without the potential of federal prosecution and 10 years to life in federal prison! Just ask all those sitting in federal prison now which these wolves in sheeps clothing (hemp) will soon join!
