Re: “Will Revenue From Legalizing Marijuana and Passing Proposition 64 Mostly Go To Police?

Thank you, Mr. Downs, for this straightforward and concise response to all the wack disinformation and fear-mongering from weed dealers collaborating with the cops and others to prolong the monsterous crime against humanity that is cannabis prohibition while hypocritically hiding behind patients in order to line their own pockets free from regulation, taxes, and especially competition from legitimate businesses.

Maybe next you could likewise eviscerate the “Big Marijuana” bogeyman being pushed by, coincidentally(!), *both* the weed dealers and cops, etc.; you know, the “corporate takeover” of the industry that hasn’t happened in Colorado or Washington, and isn’t happening in Oregon or Alaska, despite none of those states’ regulatory regimes including the protections for small cannabis businesses found in Prop 64, like no grow licenses over an acre until 2023 …

Re: “The Truth About Medical Marijuana Card Privacy

If you are trying to get a new job in the next couple months then You better stop smoking. Takes 2-8 weeks for your body to rid itself of the toxins. Depends on how often you smoke. Drink lots of water and exercise daily. Cardio is best, work up a decent sweat. Eat very healthy until 72 hours before the test, then eat junk food up until you test. Best way to test clean asap

Re: “Best Marijuana Strains of Summer 2016

The Haze or the Blue Family of marijuana strains are my favorite! Whether you are aiming for that relaxing body high or an energetic head high, both families offer unique effects. no wonder the world is crazy over any of the Blue or Haze strains.

Re: “From Growing Marijuana Outdoors to Maximum THC

There is nothing more natural than letting marijuana grow outdoors under the sun. Marijuana grown outdoors have enhanced taste and potency, plus they bear more buds than when grown indoors. Its sad that some farmers have to choose to grow indoors because of the state of marijuana legalization today.

Re: “The Truth About Medical Marijuana Card Privacy

If I got pulled over the officer smelt weed and I handed it over and he gave it back and only cited me for a speeding ticket because of my mmj card. Now is the record that he did see me with marijuana on record?

Re: “What Five Years in Prison Taught California Former Dispensary Owner Dale Schafer, and Why He's Thinking About Getting Back into the Marijuana Biz

I grew up around DC, so I have to ask, any relation to Raymond P. Shafer?

'cause that would be just too

Re: “What Five Years in Prison Taught California Former Dispensary Owner Dale Schafer, and Why He's Thinking About Getting Back into the Marijuana Biz

The argument is based on a begged question: "Is cannabis a dangerous drug?"

The answer is no, but arguments against and for accept the begged question.

The argument is for an end to the arbitrary and oppressive prohibition of a medicinal herb that has been used by humans long enough to establish a genetic relationship, not for the legalization of of a mythical dangerous drug.

I've been opening my comments about cannabis with the assertion: "No study or research has proven that cannabis causes any significant harm to users or society."

As yet I have received no valid rebuttal.

Because all the research and studies only demonstrate an association, not a cause, and often the actual cause is the prohibition.

Other times the association is the result of genetic variants that accompany an affinity for the herb, and also divergent thought conditions.…… (affinity, note that "risk of using cannabis" becomes affinity when the begged question is challenged)… (divergent thought conditions)

I wish I could have met Dr. Tod... Thanks for your efforts,

Re: “Thank Donald Trump if California Legalizes Weed

"It's the cannabis community," [Dave Hodges] said. "It has a really hard time getting everything together."

What a surprise; that people accustomed to the easy money of an underground, unregulated, and off-the-books enterprise would be challenged by an undertaking that requires following established rules and meeting fixed deadlines--you know, like having a real job or running a legitimate business ... !

Here's an "Ask Ed" for Mr. Rosenthal: How exactly is a regime for which non-medical personal cultivation and adult-use venues ("cafes") are still *felonies*, with a 37% tax rate--WA state--comparable to one that allows *anyone* to cultivate, at least indoors, dab lounges, and a 15% tax rate?! (BTW, unlike AUMA, in Colorado too many plants or too much weed in possession are still felonies ... !)

Re: “Oakland May Green-Light Eight New Pot Clubs a Year

We all have to be careful with Dept. of Alcohol Beverage Control of California. Their law enforcement division is only 9 years old but it runs by a bunch of corrupted officers. They also worked with DHS to splits the heavy fines. Dept. of ABC of Cali recruited many ex-gang members (trained by DHS) to set marijuana traps inside businesses so they can imposed heavy fine on owners. Marijuana is their cash cow and they won't give it up with out a fight.

Re: “It's Official: Marijuana Is Medicine

Actually, the AMA did not take a position on cannibus in 1937. In congressional discussion of the pending legislation, the question was asked about where AMA stood. The response was that the AMA was supportive of the legislation. The AMA president, however, later asserted that the AMA was never asked.
