  • The TC Edwards memorial roundup

    TC Edwards had hundreds of friends. If you were among them or even somewhere on the periphery, your Facebook feed has been dominated this week by tributes and photos and news of benefit concerts. Here's an attempt at a roundup of everything that's out there, with a focus on all the things you can do or attend.

Re: “David Couch confident on medical marijuana ballot title

A group suspiciously similar tried this in Ohio last year but voters were smart enough to vote it down, even though they were for medical marijuana. This AMMA proposal is actual legislation that would be run by our government (appointed by the house and senate, along with the governor) that would be enforced by the ABC. It would create a monopoly, considering it only allows a maximum of 8 growers. 8 in the ENTIRE state of Arkansas. That is 8 special interest groups getting rich off the backs of sick and dying Arkansans. These 8 growers have no cap on what they can charge for their "medicine" (their amendment doesn't even have lupus, ADD, or autism as qualifying conditions) and therefore would be able to charge whatever they want. And since this proposal doesn't have an affordability clause (like ours) nobody would be able to afford it. Well, maybe expect for the folks in the well funded special interest groups.
