Re: “Secret tape raises more questions about Medical Marijuana Commission

thats what you get when you try and regulate a God given plant as a man made medicine... the whole medical marijuana agenda is corrupt! Corrupt in that it is a plant that any human should have the right to grow and possess in his or her own back yard... for whatever purpose they deem necessary. Marijuana in its natural form has to reach a certain temperature in order for it to have a euphoric effect on its consumer... there is absolutely NO reason to keep persecuting people for possession and no reason for mankind not to make use of one of Natures best renewable resources! Legalize it ... let the people grow...

Re: “Skeptical court hears appeal on marijuana permit case

according to the Amendment the dispensaries can cultivate 50 plants and an unlimited amount of seedlings... clearly someone didn't read the law if they state that the dispensaries cannot operate without these cultivation centers... also the state should be issuing those cards... there is no reason that an approved patient cannot go to another medical mj state.. to get their 2 ounces of marijuana in which according to the amendment they are allowed to possess.... or hell legislators get off your butts... and straighten this out by just legalizing marijuana all together for adults.... repeal the Medical use and just allow the folks themselves to cultivate for themselves... we don't need a plant regulated like medicine... there is already 2 plant based medicines in the 3rd stage of FDA clinical trials .. any child or anyone needing those plant based medications should be able to get approved to use them right now... through the Right to Try Act...anyway... and doctors should be able to script that out...Legalize and Regulate marijuana like alcohol... give adults access to cultivate their own...

Re: “Governor: Feds shouldn't target medical marijuana but recreational use is fair game

Asa is out of touch with reality... with all his connections in the DEA ... as former US DEA head.. himself ... of course he wants to lock people up..and at the same time hurt families connected to all these loved ones being arrested and fined.... thats their thing... they have to much invested in the Prison Industrial Complex... They are control freaks... trying to tell grown men and women ... what plants they can having growing in their own yard... and what plants they can use... We know what you're all about Asa... as well as Rutledge the Arkansas AG... we will start a campaign against both of you ... so be very careful how you tread here ... Marijuana legalization is polling at 60% for an end to prohibition... if Trump hadn't of lied about his stand concerning state rights... he would not be sitting in the White House... and if he doesn't stop Sessions BS ... he will not see another 4 years..IMHO

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.
