Re: “Cannabis is coming!

Mike I think you should approach your doctor the event he or she tells you they are not going to recommend it for you ... so you can be finding one that will.. Doctors are under no obligation to recommend it.. ... but under your conditions and what you have described you will qualify... taking deadly pain meds for more than 6 months qualifies anyone under Issue 6...

Re: “UPDATE: Supreme outrage: Is there a line of attack on court invalidation of pot measure?

I would interpret that to mean .... any measure put on a ballot that it should count if the people vote it in even Issues 4 and 5 as well... the whole reason we have to do the petitions in the first place to see if there is enough interest in a measure for it to be placed before the people... after all they can still vote it down so what does it matter... the petition process is getting too restricted and the only reason for this is to stifle the voice of the people when it comes to reserving our right as a people to change the laws that effect us all.

Re: “Arkansas's ballot questions

everyone always fails to mention that Issue 7 ...has no provisions prohibiting multiple ownership of the cannabis care centers... a person could own more than one... in fact there is nothing in that law saying they cant own all of them...... there also is no provision restricting the ownership to Arkansas citizens only ... and any medical marijuana corp. from another state could come in here and buy up all the dispensary licenses... and set up a monopoly under the guise of a Non profit ... paying outrageous salarys to the CEO's and directors. Issue 7 is bad and will lock this state into a medical only state... the grow option is also a farce... very little will be growing anything ... with that 20 mile away rule and the dispersion of 39 potential cannabis care centers in the state with more to be added by the dept. to assure that all have access to a center.

Re: “Medical marijuana? Yes.

I second that Mr. Brantley .. Amen .. well said Truth... we are going to legalize in 2018... just got to get the measure past the desk of Rutledge again... seems she's trying to play hard ball again... but hopefully it won't be long and we'll be collecting signatures to end prohibition of the cannabis plant the next go-around. Should get results from the AG's office Friday by closing time.

Re: “That time Asa Hutchinson sort of endorsed medical marijuana

Arkansas's prison population is among the fastest-growing in the country. The state now spends more than half of a billion dollars on corrections, a 68 percent increase since 2004, and our prison population, which increased by 21 percent between 2012 and 2016, is expected to rise by another 19 percent between 2016 and 2023 to 21,345. Those were the facts and projections Justice Center, a project of the national nonprofit Council of State Governments, reminded people of yesterday before presenting criminal justice reform proposals. They say no one's in prison for pot possession.... but what about the small dealers... of pot... are they in prison... we know they are arresting 7500 people a year for possession .. 50% of those arrested are black folks.. yet the black community only makes up 13% of the entire population of Arkansas so why is there so many black folks still getting arrested 3 times more than whites... Stop the lies and legalize .. Join us on Facebook at Arkansas True Grass look us up to legalize in 2018 ..

Re: “Rutledge clears form of marijuana legalization amendment

Hello dear friends it was a hard battle and 9 is the number of birthing but the baby is here... and the people of Arkansas are really excited we have added so many people to the group page and people are taking the initiative and putting on their running shoes ... with many hands it shall make light work.... we are a true grass movement rising up out of the flames of persecution. Statistics reveal that appx 7000 people are arrested a year for marijuana possession in the state of Arkansas... these people and their families have been laden with heavy burdens of fines as these laws go about to destroy their lives... we must end this war on people... Marijuana is safer than alcohol and has to this date caused ZERO deaths by overdose. You can not say that about Alcohol! Please come and join us on facebook at True Grass the petition for this amendment can be downloaded and printed... We fight for the right to produce one of the most beneficial herbs that God has every created and said we all could use... a herb with many purposes... able to house, feed, and clothe, all people of the world as well as aid them in their travels.
