So every day I read more and more about dispensaries, and government this and that.. LEOs hate this law due to lack of funding stemming from Marijuana arrests.. I was theorizing this morning with a buddy of mine.. I can see it now, the Government run dispensaries will cancel out our rights to grow our own, which in turn will put a halt to the "legal home grow" That will satisfy LEO cause they will now be able to raid each suspected home that has a grow and seize all the equipment and still get to charge you with a cannabis related charge. seems to be looking up for the big guys imo.. They get to corner the MM market, and seeing as it wont be legal to grow your own anymore they know 40-60% of people have involvement in growing they have a huge new group of Marijuana users to target to hit their quota.. I'm not excited about the future at all All this belly aching about your precious dispensaries is going to ruin everything for alot of people that just want to get by and not have to go through another fiasco run by the government the same people that have no idea wtf is good or bad.. its all about the money $$ Is it REALLLLLLY that hard to find some herb, the stuff thats been around since the beginning of freaking time?? Can't they setup a web based program that makes it easy like a click of the button kind of stuff for the real square/newbie. Kinda like buying insurance you have a site setup with CG's the new pt goes through finds your ad that fits what your looking for and move along???? Sorry my rant is out of frustration, I just have this nasty feeling that the police and suits will get their way.. and Marijuana arrests will be here to stay.. legal or not.
Officials Want To Keep Home Grows for MMJ Washington -- The state Liquor Control Board recommended that home growing still be allowed for medical-marijuana patients, reversing an earlier proposal that inflamed activists and patients. Board members, who are charged with implementing the state’s new recreational pot system, want to allow patients or designated caregivers to grow up to six plants at a time — three flowering and three non-flowering.

New Hampshire Moves Forward Without Homegrow Provision Negotiators in New Hampshire’s House and Senate met Tuesday to discuss a provision in the state’s proposed medical marijuana bill that would allow patients to grow their own medicine at home. The Senate believed that patients should not be able to grow at home, while the House left the growing provision in. After meeting to negotiate yesterday, the House and Senate agreed to remove the homegrow provision from New Hampshire’s proposed medical marijuana law. In exchange for the House agreeing to remove the homegrow provision, the Senate agreed to specify that the commission implementing the system would be appointed as soon as the bill is passed, in order to ensure that patients gain access to their medical marijuana as quickly as possible. In addition to the Senate not approving of people growing their own medicine, New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan said that she would not sign the bill into law if the home grow provision remained. Those lawmakers who were opposed to letting patients grow their own marijuana feared that it would be difficult to regulate and that medical marijuana could be used as a front for the black market. Supporters, on the other hand, believed that allowing people to grow at home was necessary in order to guarantee immediate access to medicine. Writing the rules for the medical marijuana dispensaries could take up to a year, leaving patients with no access to medicine. Representative Donna Schlachman, the bill’s main sponsor, expressed disappointment in the decision to eliminate homegrows without the establishment of other safeguards for patients until dispensaries are up and running. She stated, “We have really opened this bill up so law enforcement in any town that is really against any form of the legalization of therapeutic cannabis is in a position to arrest people simply because they’ve applied for their card and it hasn’t come in yet.” Despite some lawmakers’ disappointment and disapproval, this compromise means that New Hampshire is not far from legalizing medical marijuana.

Medical Pot Laws Get Tougher USA -- Backers of medical-marijuana bills are proposing tighter restrictions on the drug to allay opponents’ fears of widespread use, a shift that is helping such legislation advance in additional states. Illinois and New Hampshire are poised to pass some of the strictest medical-marijuana laws in the nation. They would join New Jersey, Connecticut and Delaware in banning patients from growing their own pot, increasing oversight on commercial growers and distributors, and restricting doctors from prescribing the drug for general pain.
