    When not tangoing the night away in a smokey Rajastan bar or writing my life's memoirs on an Etch-A-Sketch I enjoy sharing a good joke with the Dalai Lama and his pals and reminding myself that we're all headed in the same direction... just traveling at different speeds. Peace and be well.
  1. I know where my time and resources will be going from here on.

  3. That's certainly where a lot of my time and whatever funds I have been able to throw together have been going toward.
  4. That's the point, Cell. The 'reality' IS what people are willing to settle for, NOT what they dream of or wish for. Do a poll of the average voter and I think it would prove me to be right. But I certainly also wish for and dream of a cannabis situation of 'no restriction or limitations'. And new cannabis laws ARE coming our way, we'll just have to see how it plays out, won't we?
  5. Darn good question. We'll have to do all we can to make whatever new cannabis laws that may be coming our way give us the legislation we think we should have. But I can almost guarantee you can ask ten people here what the limit should be in terms of the # of plants we should be allowed to grow under a 'recreational use' law and you'll ten get different answers. And that is probably why you're seeing such a wide range of restrictions and limitations in these new laws.

  8. 2) Dispensary/marijuana stores or other commercial distribution - Retail stores selling marijuana to adults, while all unlicensed and unregulated manufacturing and distribution activity becomes illegal. This is the nightmare of the 37%, because they really think "weed is bad," as bad as alcohol in some ways, and some of these people would even make alcohol illegal again if they were King. See Pappageorge response to Bob's letter; he is in his early eighties, but very healthy, so we could be waiting quite a while for the die-off predicted by many legalization proponents. Zap, I believe your
  9. As more states pass pro-cannabis laws the federal government will have no other choice but to change the national laws regarding cannabis. One of the reasons for the coming changes will be due to the inevitable law suits between the states and federal governments' due to the IRS accepting tax money from the states that goes toward helping the feds hamper or interfere with citizens for their use of cannabis in those states were it's legal. The feds can't have it both ways: they can either stop enforcing anti-cannabis federal law within the states were cannabis is legal OR they can stop
  10. Let Floridians Vote on Medical Pot Posted by CN Staff on November 17, 2013 at 05:59:09 PT By Sun Sentinel Editorial Board Source: Sun-Sentinel Florida -- Floridians deserve to know the truth about a proposal to legalize medical marijuana. Here it is: Some people want voters to decide whether pot should be allowed for medical purposes, as prescribed by a doctor. Some don't. Some of the state's most prominent leaders have lined up against a push to place medical marijuana on the 2014 state ballot. They argue the ballot language is deceptive, hiding the scope and permissive
  11. I give up... why are we? The article just said cannabis was winning elections, its main points were not about what the legislation contained in terms of taxing or restrictions... the main idea, from what my limited awareness is able to glean from it, is that cannabis is gaining acceptability. Is that not a good thing?
  12. Doesn't have to be correct, Zap... just has to be true. We will see major changes coming about regarding MJ.
  13. I believe that a majority of politicians in Lansing want to have full LEO tracking of MMJ and would love nothing more than to be able to tax it. And I believe all the indicators coming out of Lansing since the MMM act was voted into law substantiate that opinion. Just to mention one indicator: the push for legislation to allow the sale of MMJ in pharmacies. If there are other indicators that show otherwise please list them, would love to see them.
