Re: “Pot protection

The cost for airtight security could more than likely be offset by the protection that insurance agencies may be able to provide for our MMJ industry. I also agree that adding insurance to the list of supporting industries will boost the validity of the MMJ movement for many people. It really makes me sick hearing about dispensaries being burglarized and perhaps, if mindfully implemented, specially tailored insurance policies can put an end to the hype that MMJ is inherently dangerous. We do have to embrace that high grade MMJ is a valuable commodity, period. If we can find ways to safeguard all MMJ collectives, dispensaries and patients we may find our media outlets have less negative press on MMJ and consequently increase acceptance across all boards. There is a large number of very creative, passionate and determined individuals leading us through these choppy waters, it is imperative that the advocates / supporters continue to stand together to improve all aspects of MMJ and continually discover new solutions. Support what we voted for, speak out and be part of the solution !!

Re: “Don't stop pot progress

Thank you so much Dorian for sharing your story and taking a stand for so many people. Any workplaces that attempt to place stress on MMJ patients ( who are speaking out or not ) should be boycotted and publicly outed by patients and supporters. Remember everyone, it took the majority of us to put Amendment 20 through, so in theory we should have a majority of the public to support patients when they need it. If your place of work is mistreating you despite your legal rights, I will gladly to contribute multiple wheat-pasted fliers all over town alerting the public of your workplaces' policies. This is a law created by the voters, not a allowance. If you have a MMJ card you are compliant with state law, we should all hope that "drug-free workplaces" can keep their slogan and policy without creating a stress for patients that are approved by the people and by the state. Shame on your workplace, I hope that they wise up soon along with any others who are trying to pull similar moves !!

Re: “Demonization of marijuana winding down

Medicinal and Recreational use of marijuana have killed no one, nor has anyone ever had to detox from this substance. Many other "meds" that are prescribed by physicians have caused so many complicated problems for suffering patients. No one wants to be suffering from any ailment and then add to it a possible addiction to a "true" narcotic with serious withdraws. Not to say that opiate-based pain-relief is worthless, because it is not they are however largely over prescribed for how dangerous they are when compared to Marijuana based pain relief. A large number of physicians become convinced that patented pharmaceutical products are the way to go largely because there is so much money thrown around by the pharmaceutical representatives of today. To me the logical thing to do is prevent taxing MMJ on all fronts, after all the people voted this into the State Constitution so that suffering citizens could simply have legal access, not to generate tax revenue. Yes, the state is suffering economically but should the sick be taxed. If so than to be fair we must tax all other medications as well. If we really want to generate a tax revenue from this plant, we must look ahead for the legalization of recreational use and tax it only as a non-medicine. !!
