It's not just the employees satisfaction that matters , it's patients and plenty are not.

Re: “California Does Not Have A Medical Marijuana Recommendation Problem

There are no complaints because the problem is different. No one is going to complan about a doctor that fills their need for recreational marijuana without asking too many questions. Other people don't have the details needed to make a substantive complaint. I would investigate this a bit deeper. Why not pick 5 medical recommenders at random, research some symptoms and see whether you can get a recommendation based on bogus symptoms. See if a physical examination is actually done. Do you want to dig that far ? Ask recommenders what percent of people they turn away. Look for verifiable numbers on that. A recommender that recommends marijuana for 100% of the people that walk through the door is questionable.

If you really want to see if CA has a recommendation problem, ask those questions.

Re: “The Cost of Not Selling Alcohol

I guess it depends on the type of restaurant you are planning. I go out to eat in casual local restaurants several times a week and I rarely order alcohol. I don't see many other people ordering it either. Thai,vietnamese and casual chinese food places don't seem to serve much in the way of alcohol. I go to places like Easy Creole, Homeroom, Smokey J's, Au Coq, Gregoire, Saul's. Some of those serve beer and wine, but I don't see them as critically dependent on it. There are high end places that make money form a high end wine list, and pizza places which serve as both restaurants and bars, but I have seen plenty of places where drinking a few glasses of wine is not expected in roder to make a profit.

Re: “How To Talk To a Cop About Pot

Marijuana legalization proponents will have more credibility when they address the public health problems and what they plan to do about them. If pot gets legalized, the number of people who consume it will increase so will the health problems associated with it. With alcohol and tobacco, we have ad campaign that show the stark real problems those legal substances can cause. It seems that pot activists would shriek 'bloody murder', if the same ads were shown regarding pot. Then there's the question of industry. If you think Big Tobacco is slimy in it's pursuit to get people to get people to smoke and keep smoking, supressing or outright lying about the science behind smoking, what makes you think Big Pot will be any different? These are issues the marijuana legalization movement has to seriously deal with, or there will be fallout in the years ahead, just as there was with tobacco, in which people said "In the 50's, no one knew tobacco was bad for you, even doctors endorsed it on TV". The way things are going, it looks like we are going to repeat that mistake.
Marijuana smoking is not a crime and not a recreation, it's a public health problem.

Re: “Updated: More Shake-Ups as Recall Effort Stalled at KPFA

"I think recall elections are destructive, expensive, divisive, and represent a desire to eliminate points of view," Rosenberg contended,"

Tracy Rosenberg did not express this opinion at all when a political rival faced a recall election a few years ago.
