Re: “Altered State: Marijuana in California

I believe that it should be a requirement that all city officials and police chiefs throughout California should see this display so that they can have the unbiased truth about this plant and how politics have steered public opinion on this issue,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Re: “The Real Reason Why Oakland's Police Chief Was Fired

I would venture to say that this kind of thing happens all over the country in large metro areas, this is what has happened to the folks that we pay to protect us, they use their color of authority to prey/brutalize and in some cases kill innocent folks..... kinda makes you wonder who the real crooks are.

Re: “Actually, Brock Turner Did Deserve Prison for the Stanford Sexual Assault

This is a perfect example of the elite not being accountable for their actions as far as justice is concerned on a local level, and it is very bad for our State to have this kind of injustice occur, it is synonymous with Billary Clinton on a national level, she will probably escape justice due to who she is and who she knows.
What if every criminal stated that what they did did not jeopardize national security (although clearly against the law) so they should not be arrested or prosecuted, in layman's terms that's exactly what Clinton defense is........................... our country is in bad shape

Re: “Old, White Drug Warriors Are Suing to Protect Pot Prohibition — and Their Profits

It is a shame when money interests get in front of the will of the people, but it appears to be par for the course in the times we now find ourselves living in...... not what our Fore fathers had in mind I am sure.

Re: “Alameda County Fast-Tracks Medical Pot Ban

I am writing in regards to Fairfield/Vacaville rolling back Policy 452 that gave medical cannabis patients the right to cultivate, as a citizen and a medical cannabis patient, I do not believe this new approach of outlawing all medical cannabis patients right to cultivate will have a positive effect on our communities.
As a matter of fact it could and probably will have a negative effect on our communities as noted below:
Black market cannabis = Cannabis grown for the explicit reason to make money, there are folks that are growing black market cannabis with medical cannabis recommendations (which is illegal under California Medical Cannabis Law) , they use this as a first line of defense, but if there were no medical cannabis laws they would still be growing black market cannabis, so in essence there are really two markets that appear to be mixed up when these cities made their decisions, Black Market Cannabis and Medical Cannabis....
The price for Black Market Cannabis (the exact same strains that are available at Cannabis Dispensaries) is anywhere from 50% -70% of the price charged at Cannabis Dispensaries, these are the prices on our community streets. I will also point out that every time there is a drug bust involving Black Market Cannabis, there are always other substance involved ie Meth, Heroin and Cocaine
Due to economic conditions we could very well be pushing Genuine Medical Cannabis patients to purchase black market cannabis that will fuel not only the Black Market Cannabis, but also Meth, Heroin and cocaine in our communities that will also be available to our children..........
Another point that I thing has to taken into consideration, is that due to the permitting process of the new regulations that the State put together to move forward with the industry, there are going to be growers who in the past sold to dispensaries are not going to be able to qualify/permitted to sell to dispensaries, do the City Govts. think that these growers are going to throw their cannabis away, I think it goes on the street driving the price of black market cannabis lower making it more attractive for medical cannabis patients who are on financial margins.
I just do not think this latest approach taken by our local Govts. Is in the best interest of ALL of the citizens of our cities including our children….. and I do not believe that cultivating medical cannabis by qualified medical cannabis patients has that great of a negative impact on our community, it should be a give and take issue, ie outlaw indoor medical cannabis gardens (life/safety, impact on electrical grid and most of all contact with children), permit the outdoor cultivation and limit to 4 plants, how hard is that….

Re: “Alameda County Fast-Tracks Medical Pot Ban

I am happy that there appears to be solidarity of the players going forward with hopefully only one initiative hitting the ballot box come Nov. I will say that I think that the authors got it wrong in regard to personal cultivation, I believe that the City's should be able to restrict indoor grows and be mandated to allow outdoor grows.....................think about it and all of the issues concerning cultivation and the overall impacts.
