Re: “Death of a Pot Salesman?

It's fascinating to watch this transition as states pull feds into the vortex. I'll somewhat miss my neighborhood pot dealer. I always looked forward to those twice monthly visits and smoke-filled conversations.

Re: “Pot Clubs Purchase Police Oversight in Richmond

Law enforcement is a racket.
Based on certain moral and ethical considerations, that's not necessarily a bad thing. If the money goes to pay for injustice and abuse of basic human rights then we have a problem. However, if it's used to promote education and economic opportunities for the poor, society will have less need for a racket like LE in the first place. I long for the day when cops no longer need or want to carry a gun.

Re: “Harborside and Oaksterdam Don't Attract Crime

I would suggest dispensary's actually reduce crime in their areas. Street dealers are like cockroaches, they prefer to operate in the shadows and scurry away from the light. Recently here in Portland, Oregon, local cops raided and shut down the "Human Collective" that has operated for several years without incident. This last Spring, it was toured by our new state attorney-general, Ellen Rosenblum, a Democrat, and Oregon Rep. Andy Olson, House Republican leader. Both endorsed the Collective and its operation.
Now, word on the street that crime and violence in the area have increased, including a "drug related" murder. Another report indicates dealers have staked out the now empty building offering pot and even giving away free samples of heroin to kids.

Re: “Hundreds March for Harborside

I thought the final quote nailed it to a tee. I think t's even worth repeating:
"Whoever pays more money will win the election," he said. "It could be Obama, it could be the KKK. Marijuana is not the issue in this country. Federal authorities are making it an issue."
Meditate on it.

Re: “Harborside Health Center Faces Raids, Epic Legal Battle

One tactic that could be helpful is to insert Jury Nullification info with every order and all inventory on the shelf... when the cops take the medicine they also take the JN info and must list it in their report, making it "evidence" that can be used by defense to ensure jurors understand their duty to protect the rights of the defendant when charged with unjust laws like pot prohibition, for example.

Re: “The Ganja Ship Jolly Roger

I have always thought cannabis should be available to anyone who wants it, for whatever reason! Some individuals will exploit it in this confusing and chaotic transition to legalization, but isn't that better than government throwing people in jail for it?
