Re: “Prop. 64 Rolls Out New Ads, No on 64 Touts Unfavorable New Poll

The law we have now (Prop. 215) is the most federally conforming law in the nation. If we we're following it properly there would not be the problems we have today. Blame this on our own state and local governments for misleading and misguiding us to form unlawful entities just so they can "Cash in on our Use"! Prop. 64 does NOT put money into the much needed and necessary infrastructure it puts the money into the hands of the corrupt corporate cannabis cronies and their shills! Maybe the spokesman should read all 62 pages of the measure and find out for himself rather than just collecting a paycheck for once again misleading and misguiding the people!

Re: “#BlackLivesMatter In New Marijuana Legalization Video from #Yeson64

Calling the kettle Black?

The racial and social injustice folks are the people making and enforcing the laws! We've all heard the saying "guns don't kill people, it's the people using guns"! Well this scenario is NO different, lawmakers made marijuana laws many years ago based on racist and corporate interest. To keep Mexican immigrants from coming to America, to keep African Americans and long haired white hippies down and from thinking freely. To keep hemp and cannabis from competing with oil, plastic, timber and big Pharma and agriculture businesses. So to turn around and blame the exact same entities that create and enforce the laws by voting in an even more racist and social biased new one (Prop. 64) is ludicrous and completely insane. As long as the same people (government & enforcement) are behind the new gun (law) pulling the same trigger then social and racial injustice will continue to be a predominant part of our society. Don't let them fool you with false rederrick and lies, the only way we can change the outcome is to either take away the gun (NO 64) and replace (vote out) the itchy trigger finger people behind the gun! Just wait and see the courtrooms and jail cells fill with more and more people (black, white & Latino, etc) when "drugged driving charges" and 18-20 year olds "possession of use" cases become the systems new cannabis cash cow!

Re: “Plan Would Require City of Oakland To Be Part Owner of Any New Marijuana Business

Shame on Oaktown! The City is already "profiting" from unlawful businesses (dispensaries) "selling" the controlled substance marijuana by "taxing" the illegal activities! Now they want 25% ownership too, I'd like to hear them explain to Uncle Sam and the IRS how a governmental entity can blatantly violate current state law and federal law! Can't anyone see what the hell is going on here in California? They'll put individuals and organization lives, assets and livelihoods at risk of potential prosecution just so they can "cash in on our use"! Our own lawmakers have turned the "Compassionate Use Act" upside down and made it the "Compensation from our Use Act"! Wake up cannabis community and smell what our local and state governments are cooking! California has created its own drug cartel from the grey area they created, if you can't beat the "black market" just form your own "grey market" and take over the industry with corporate and government greed!

Re: “Tickets On Sale Now for 'Route 64': A Special Marijuana Legalization Discussion and Event

I would love to be a panelist at this event so I could answer any questions about Prop. 64 vs Prop. 215! We already have the most federally conforming law (Prop. 215) in the nation and we don't want to lose it with a new law (Prop. 64) that blatantly fly's in the face of federal law! California has purposefully mislead and misguided us ALL in the way Prop. 215 is supposed to be followed and how the industry is supposed to be being run. It's really simple folks, only two entities are allowed under current state law (Prop. 215) which are a "collective" or a "cooperative" so that there is NO "sale" or "profit" ever occurring. The "grey area" was created by smart lawyers, lawmakers and corporate interest who knew that if SB 420 didn't specifically say "sales" and "profiteering" was or wasn't lawful then they could push individuals and organization who don't know any better into forming other entities that are unlawful. Yes, this is how our great state is able to "sales" tax a controlled substance and therefore "profit" from such as well by collecting money from unlawful business activities! Now our lawmakers and the corporate profiteers want to cover up this travesty of justice and the fleecing of millions of tax dollars from medical patients and NOW make it legal at a state level (MCRSA & Prop. 64) to "sell" and "profit" from pot and potheads as they call us and refer to us repeatedly. Well we have news for them now, we are not going to let this "cannabis conspiracy" continue and we will fight to keep our rights to grow and use this plant as we see fit! We will not sit back and watch our Rights go away as easily as they think we will once everyone knows and see's the truth about what's been going on here in California and why! I would gladly debate anyone especially Mr. Newsom on these facts and hopefully open the eyes of those who don't know the truth behind this double whammy (MCRSA & Prop. 64) and why we must vote NO on Prop. 64 and repeal the recent legislature trying to turn Prop. 215 upside down without voter approval!

Re: “9th Circuit Smacks Down Rogue Pot Prosecutors: Dispensaries’ Legal Shield Holds Up in Federal Appeals Court

Okay folks, let me bring you ALL up to speed in these matters! If I told you that 99% of all the entities currently operating marijuana businesses in California are illegal for-profit corporations known as "dispensaries" holding themselves out to be lawful "collectives" or "cooperatives" you'd probably be shocked. Yes, that means NOT one of those unlawful entities is following current state law as its NOT protected by the spending amendment! The SBOE would have a list of these "sales" tax exempt entities on file and on record because you simply cannot "sell" or "profit" from a controlled substance or the transactions. Nowhere in current state law does it say that you can specifically "sell" or "profit" from marijuana and our state government has misguided us into unlawful activities simply so they could tax the illegal business operations. Furthermore, the spending amendment does NOT address or effect the long arm of the federal government known as the IRS and they're ability to enforce federal laws like the CSA, RICO and their own Rule 280E. The "paper shield" amendment only has four corners and only says what it says inside those corners and nothing outside or beyond that is protected from federal prosecution. Rejoice if you are one of the rare handful of lawful entities operating today and be very wary if your NOT because the federal government knows California mislead you from the get go so they could "Cash in on Our Use" if you're not smart enough to understand and follow the "Compassionate Use Act" the way its supposed to be followed in conjunction with federal law! The fact you paid "sales" tax is the very evidence that will be used by the federal government to prove you weren't following state law and will also be the evidence used to prosecute you and or your organization. I wish the best of luck to ALL those that believed the "dispensary" business model used by even the largest of operators is exactly what comes back to haunt you and shame on California for leading you down the unlawful path and the potential prosecution simply for the "taxation" of illegal business activities of "selling" and "profiting" from pot!

Re: “Marijuana Legalization Proponents Sue Sen. Dianne Feinstein Over Proposition 64

Hey Miles,
The plan is to take this issue all the way to the Federal Supreme Court if necessary right NOW! Why wait till the pot boils over (excuse the pun) and people's livelihood and assets have been put in jeopardy! Just as people are made to believe that putting the cart (state law) before the horse (federal law) and making cannabis quasi legal at a state level while federal law enforcement entities like the IRS simply look the other way is ridiculous and a pipe dream ( another pun) my fellow marijuana smoker. It's as simple as this my friend, always ask for permission (from the Feds) rather than forgiveness in federal court later...right?! I'm not trying to spread a campaign of "fear" but rather an individual who's a champion of "truth" seeking justice and educating the public and the people of the facts in this matter! I'm in the process of launching a blog to just that, educate everyone as to my personal experiences and hands on knowledge of this industry so that we ALL don't have to go through the marijuana business mayhem and madness that exist in the real world today. Rather than taking a negative attitude and saying defamatory statements about people and organization you simply know nothing about I highly suggest you open your eyes and actually see the writing on the wall and do what's necessary. I have several lawsuits filed in order to bring these various matters involving marijuana to light and in order to educate the public of the major problems that exist in this business and the industry as a whole. We need to ALL join together, look at the facts and the truth and actually do something about it before it's too late and the rights and freedoms we ALL should have to grow and produce our own medicine from a natural plant put on earth by God are taken away by our own government and the corporation that want to control, regulate and tax cannabis. Wake up Miles and smell the marijuana and what the capitalist cannabis conspiracy is trying to do by misleading and misguiding people who chose to use marijuana as their personal choice of medicine for whatever reason. Cannabis is not the new cash cow for corporations and our governments simply because a smaller percentage of us choose to and use marijuana rather than alcohol, tobacco and prescription drugs. This is truly a matter of common sense and knowledge of the facts surrounding the stigma created many years ago to stymie the most productive plant on the planet! If you'd like to talk to me personally or debate this matter I welcome your input and or questions so feel free and email me me at dave@medimarts.com and I'll gladly respond in a timely manner.
