Re: “Las Vegas Now A Bust for Most California Medical Pot Patients

This is good . No cards from other states should be allowed at all! Especially California where anybody can get a medical card for just about any reason. You can even say "I need to use marijuana or else I'll be sad" it's a joke.
It's the same as going to Mexico , getting a prescription then expecting America to fill end .

Re: “Las Vegas Now A Bust for Most California Medical Pot Patients

That's "fewer than 100,000 cards" since *the program began* in 2004; since 2014 less than 10,000 cards, which are generally valid for only a year, have been issued ...
Although obtaining one can be a hassle and expensive [http://goo.gl/V5wfCj], they are worth the trouble, as they offer the closest thing to a "bar to prosecution"--vs merely an "admissible defense" from a doctor's rec--for patients and caregivers: If a police officer detains a cardholder for having weed, the cop must, by law, call the phone number on the county–issued Medical Marijuana Identification card and recite its ID number. If the card is real, the officer must release the cardholder. Under California law, police can't even ask an MMI cardholder questions about the marijuana in his or her possession. In fact, an officer faces a misdemeanor if he doesn't respect the MMI card, due to provisions of medical privacy mandated by the federal HIPAA law and supported by state Senate Bill 420.

Re: “Marijuana Laws On The Ballot in Seven States And Climbing This November Election

Keep in mind there will still be room in the prisons & Rehab centers for those whom have substance abuse problems. And then those that fall outside of societies norms will end up in either place. The fact that nicotine, alcohol & various hospital errors kill a large number of people each yr ( CDC REPORT FOR '14 most current stats). No 1 that I've seen can tell me why Methamphetamine is a sched 2 drug? Cannabis needs to be made available to those whom need it(in this instance a medical avenue) its also apparent that the folks who currently grow for medical receivers need to continue & to educate the general public. Its quite scary in the fact that the govt could stomp in at any time & destroy what those who are in the production end of this business model. If the govt was really wanting to help us, they would make nicotine illegal. Instead of subsidizing the tobacco farmer lets retool their industry to aid them in the growing of medicinal cannabis. The govt does not oversee the making of supplements, which have also done its fair share of harm to the public(also CDC stats) there has to be a reasonable ground for all to share in. The problem is the 'reasonable' heading. Vote out those that do not follow the wishes of the constituents. Its already started, it needs to continue. My expectations for reasonable medical care have at times been very cruel & unusual; all in the name of m3dical practise. I just wish my physician had the ability to Rx cannabis: I have no idea if i would benefit or be harmed by its use and various components? I do know as a spinal cord injured person; I want & need a better way to address my neurological problems along w/pain-discomfort created by a spinal cord injury. Not asking for the world, just a desire to be actively involved in this world.

Re: “The Richest One Percent Moves to Kill Medical Marijuana in Florida — Again

I am so sick of these old codgers being jealous of young people and hoarding beach properties to keep young people out and bashing marijuana users. If they want to live in an anti marijuana place, then they should move to some redneck corn fart state up north. Florida is the tropics and meant to smoke marijuana in. Furthermore, state leaders are complete morons by keeping it illegal, because they would make huge amounts of tax dollars if they legalized it. People don't give a shit what these old codgers do to rid of marijuana, it will always be in Florida and people will always be smoking it. Florida state leaders either legalize it and make tax dollars or who fucking cares. Millions in Florida are toking it up right now and laughing at them.

Re: “The Richest One Percent Moves to Kill Medical Marijuana in Florida — Again

i have spent most of my life living in the worst nieghborhoods in tampa,fl. through this time i have helped many poor and impoversed people, many mentally ill people, and many people who just can't get it anywhere. i remain poor too with little to none assets also but my joy and reward has been knowing that i have helped such people. i have bipolar schitzo effective dissorder for the past 18 years of my life and no matter what any doctor politician or the lying wealthy, marijuana helps us too. in their ignorance they will say mentally ill people won't be included for medical use. mentally i'll people account for a very large amount of pharmacudical drugs which do help for the benefit of the mentally ill. mentally ill people struggle and are bassically outcasts of society and trully have no voice in this matter either. their lives are filled extremely with derision and too much emotional pain also. marijuana has helped us all with this pain and it frees our minds bodies and souls. mostly they can barely afford it. so i dedicated the last 22 years of my life to help my fellow poor and ailling brothers and sisters in my community. i have no finnantial gain from it all, but i am still poor also. i am rich in the fact that i have helped all who i have through 3 dollars five dollars and the occasional ten dollars. too many injustices against the poor from the oppressive wealthy. there will be a revolution against these injustices because one day we won't take it anymore. our american ancesters revolted against slavery and houndred of years earlier revolted against the spanish english an other nations that still exist to this day. in europe we fought against the oppressors and people of power. africa pronounced slavery for thousands of years. we must fight back and fight these present day injustices and we must regain what we know as human beings to be right and fight against wrong or we are just as guillty as the oppressors themselves. we as americans just look the other way like people who witness murder and say nothing at all. how long will these injustices remain? untill we the people of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WE THE PEOPLE FOR THE PEOPLE STAND UP AND DO WHAT IS MORRALLY RIGHT AND RID OUR FUTURE OF THESE REOCCURRING WAYS. HISTORRY DOES REPEAT ITSELF AND INSTEAD WE MAKE NO CHANGE. NUFF SAID NUFF RESPECT AND WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE. I SMELL BULLSHIT AND THE COFFEE IS OVERWATERED AND OVER PRICED. AMERICA FUCK YOU AND YOUR BULLSHIT SMELLING COFFEE TOO. YOU ARE ALL PART OF THE PROBLEM AND NOW WE MUST STAND UP AND BE A PART OF THE SOLLUTION AND THIS GOES BEYOND MARIJUANA. MOST OF YOU COWARDS WOULD MOST LIKELY WALK AWAY IF YOU SAW A WOMAN BEING BEAT AND SAY NOTHING EXCEPT LETS GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE. SOONER THEN LATER I AM GOING TO GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE TOO. ITS A SHAME PEOPLE SAY AND DO NOTHING. TO ME THAT IS THE GREATEST INJUSTICE OF ALL. GOOD PEOPLE SEE WRONG AND TRY TO MAKE IT RIGHTAND IF THEY MUST THEY FIGHT. BAD PEOPLE SEE WRONG AND DO NOTHING AT ALL, THE TRUE DEFFINITION OF A COWARD. THE REMAINING QUESTION IS UP TO US ALL. WHICH SIDE ARE YOU? THE LIVING COWARD OR THE DYING HERO. I WOULD RATHER BE A FREE DEAD MAN IN MY GRAVE THEN A LIVING SLAVE WAITING FOR NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!JOSEPH KULCINSKI SIGNED SEALED AND APPROVED. PLEASE STAND UP BECAUSE WE ARE AMERICANS AND LET US PROVE THAT WE WILL FIGHT FOR WHAT IS RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Of course, the "old Guard" republicans in Michigan, have pulled out all the tricks they could and have silence the voices & will of the citizens in Michigan. The Kingdom has put the kibosh to a rec. marijuana vote. (for now only - it will be back)

Re: “Marijuana Laws On The Ballot in Seven States And Climbing This November Election

What we're seeing is the tail trying to wag the dog, when states make laws that directly conflict with federal (CSA) ones then "federal supremacy" steps in and is the law of the land according to our Constitution. Until Uncle Sam says its legal to "sell" and "profit" from a controlled substance and the transactions it simply cannot be lawful! If following state law has the potential of someone being prosecuted by federal entities and a ten year to life sentence in federal prison then the 5th Amendment also comes into play. The higharchy of law has existed for hundreds of years and any change has to occur from the "top down" not the "bottom up" or no individual is safe or protected from self incrimination and potential prosecution. Wake up America and smell the cannabis, tell congress to get off their ass and actual do something to resolve this issue once and for ALL! Marijuana is s plant put on this earth and given to us by God, it's not a drug manufactured by man and does NOT belong on the schedule of the CSA. If tomatoes had healing properties and helped us feel better and happier and think more freely would tomatoes be a "controlled substance" too? Think about it folks

Re: “Marijuana Laws On The Ballot in Seven States And Climbing This November Election

We are seeing a hail mary by moguls, billionaires, greedy people that want to continue a failed model of prosecution of a natural plant. Why are they trying to stop Cannabis? Simple - the model is successful for the 1%'ers. It feeds prisons, it provides government funding to police and court mandated therapy. It keeps the people popping pills instead of growing a natural medicine in your garden. It gives you true freedom - and empowers you to free yourself from capitalistic profiteering interests. This war on a plant is also a war against your freedom. Stand up to any immoral policies that tell you what you can't do with YOUR body & FREEDOM!

Re: “Marijuana Laws On The Ballot in Seven States And Climbing This November Election

700k arrested yearly--so many lives ruined. Police,prisons, Big Rehab and Big Pharmacy prosper. Everyone else suffers. Our government was structured to benefit the people. Our rulers are subject to us, not vice versa. They government only with our consent. They are our servants not our masters.

Re: “California Set for Historic Vote on Cannabis Legalization

"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!
