    I truely believe you should put your considerable talent and effort into
    getting more decriminalization law passed in california for non-patients
    … i.e. support decriminalization for non commercial & non profit
    cultivation up to 99 plants; as well as possession of increased weight
    limits from 1oz to 8oz ..for example.

    *Agreed; but i'm not afraid of the feds because i'm a patient and not a
    PROFITEER nor am i concerned with the COMMERCIAL CULTIVATION of marijuana;
    i'm concerned with cultivation for individual patients. Further you did
    not address the fact that the idea of full legalization as you describe it
    … is not supported by most of the nation. which puts your point of view
    in the minority. Prop 19 … denied; and nothing for 2012 … denied.
    Further you did not address the fact that weed is already decriminalized
    for all NON-PATIENTS in California; which i believe should be the same
    across the nation. i just don't see the see the mass incarceration argument
    has merit in California. California is my concern; once California is good;
    then we change the nation.
     
    * I suggest each patient make an informed adult decision; smoke it legal or
    smoke it illegal … its your adult decision; and i'm not shouldn't be
    shamed into agree with your decision or position. Its against the law to
    drink and drive. If you choose to drink and drive despite your feelings
    whether it is illegal or not; that's your decision … and nothing i need
    to be shamed about; i'm not gong to be shamed into supporting a perspective
    i don't agree with; nor does the rest of the nation. The nations supports
    medical use; that's it. Fact is the nation has chewed the propaganda so
    long … nobody and i mean nobody wants to force feed the pubic this
    legalization spin. Romney and Obama didn't even discuss medical … forget
    about it.
     
    Think of it his way … you're jail for driving drunk … you gonna say
    "I'm sorry you are sick … but i'm in Jail." This nation is not going to
    sympathize with you right? Well unfortunately … most of the nation feels
    the same way about weed; the legal movement just has a hard time accepting
    this as true.
     
    We don't share the same perspective; because we don't share the same goal;
    i'm concerned with medicine in California; my concern is PROP 215; and
    decriminalization.
    .. with respect,

    WEED ACTIVIST SAID:
     
    "i no longer believe that full legalization is the answer"
     
     
    Well that settles that then…
     
     
    I will just agree to disagree on that position. As long as we are
    justifying continuing the mass incarceration of our people because we fear
    that the Feds will somehow take away the limited medical rights we have,
    then we have already lost.
     
     
    "my best advice is to GET LEGAL; get a doctor to recommend treatment for
    your condition; that's the rules; i don't make em; and i don't break em."
     
     
    So you suggest that people who do not feel they are ill should simply
    exploit the system further because that is what we have in place, rather
    than do the hard work it takes to make it so nobody has to go to the doctor
    ever again if they do not want? I do not get that, but okay….
     
     
    Thanks again for the perspective. I do not share it, but I can respect it.

    Actually the latest polls show 50% and 54% respectively support
    legalization nationwide compares with low 40% opposed.

    It matters because ASA is a front for the financial interests of a small group of people who are seeking (or have) to create a monopoly where only they sell pot and all other people continue to be arrested and go to jail.
     
    It matters because now in Maine, thanks to Rebecca DeKuster, Berkely Patient Group, and (hence ASA) you now only have 8 stores when it could have been decriminalized for all mmj patients at the very least to work in groups or collectivelly associate to cultivate.
     
    It matters because the hard work and good intentions of others are stolen REGULARLY by others.
     
    You make a conflicting statement.
     
    You say "who cares" and then you say Asa accomplished all this.
    No. ASA did not accomplish this and you can assume by this being pointed out that ASA has taken credit for many things THEY did not accomplish GIVING UNSUSPECTING PERSON THE BELIEF that "ASA accomplished" this.
    Who cares?
     
    You and any patient who wants to stop paying $300 an ounce for a plant should care. Monopolies never benefit the consumer
    You and anybody who believes that people should not be thrown in prison for this plant should care as ASA is using this illusion of success to influence policy for their consulting business to be the pot dealers
    ASA is not a social group, nor is it an advocacy group for anything except Don Duncan and associates business interests.
     
    Yet, they portray themselves as a the voice of a social movement.
    It matters because when groups work on something for years they want to use that success to obtain grants from donors to be able to accomplish more things.
     
    Makes it kind of hard if one group is lying and taking credit as a regular part of their strategy.
     
    It matters because now in Maine you have what? 8 stores? But everybody else still goes to jail, right? And people will continue to overpay for a PLANT, right? Because it is so dangerous only the ASA sprouts should sell it right?
     
    It matters alot.
     
    And to me, it really matters that they manipulate their restrictive permitting pot monopoly with death threats, smear and intimidation campaigns, thefts of intellectual property, ratting people out as seeing other patient groups as "competition" to be eliminated, ideas of freedom are met with harassment and threats of bodily harm at government offices. It matters when they stalk people and hack computers to accomplish their pot monopoly. It matters when they go into stores and stick their USB sticks into the stores computer under the guise of helping them but really stealing their patient databases. It matters when they threaten to make peoples children disappear, it matters when they lead false allegations of embezzlement against groups trying to work on level 2 and 3 zoning and spread this all over town to mislead people
    WHILE ASA PUTS INTO PLAY IT'S SHELL GAME OF USING OTHERS AS HUMAN CANNON FODDER TO OBTAIN RESTRICTIVE PERMITS FOR THEIR ORGANIZATION TO BE EXCLUSIVE DISTRIBUTORS OF MARIJUANA.
    it matters to me that they are doing this on the backs of the people who this law was meant for and it matters that they intimidate those patients who try to get active into "going away".
    It matters that they are an actual corporate self serving interest who has claimed the right to speak for a social movement and enforces this with death threats and violence
    It matters. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    View video here: http://www.azfamily.com/news/Case-is-first-test-of-Arizonas-medical-marijuana-law-175044741.html
     
    Case is first test of Arizona's medical marijuana law
     
    PHOENIX — The first real test for Arizona’s medical marijuana law began in Maricopa County Superior Court, Friday, with arguments between the Maricopa County attorney and lawyers from the American Civil Liberties Union.

    The spark for this case was provided by a businessman who is trying to open a medical marijuana dispensary in Sun City. The White Mountain Health Center filed a lawsuit against Maricopa County after it refused to provide documentation and information required in order to obtain a dispensary permit under the voter approved 2010 Arizona Medical Marijuana Act.
     
    “This has been an issue that I've been willing to fight for because it is a true medicine and I think the people in Sun City would benefit from that medicine,” said Butch Williams, of the White Mountain Health Center.
     
    Williams is the first to apply for a dispensary permit under Maricopa County jurisdiction (nearly a dozen others have applied in Maricopa County under municipal jurisdiction). Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery is leading the fight against the AMMA because he believes it would force public employees in Arizona to violate federal drug laws that prohibit the use, sale and cultivation of marijuana.
     
    “We’re still asked to engage in facilitating violation of federal law and unless and until a court is able to show us how we can do it without breaking federal law, we can’t,” said Montgomery, describing part of his argument presented to Superior Court Judge Michael Gordon on Friday.
     
    But lawyers from the ACLU who are representing Williams and his White Mountain Health Center said the state has every right to set policy.
     
    “[County attorneys are] coming in and making what seems to be largely a political argument that Arizona can't decide for itself what should be and shouldn't be criminal, and how Arizona wants to manage the health of its people,” said Ezekiel Edwards, director of the ACLU’s criminal law reform project.
     
    Edwards argued that while the federal government could still chose to enforce its laws in Arizona, that doesn’t prevent Arizona from decriminalizing medical marijuana use at the State level. Arizona is one of 17 states with some form of medical marijuana allowance and Edwards said the federal government has yet to punish any of those states.
     
    “States are allowed to determine the contours of their own criminal laws and they're allowed to criminalize and decriminalize activity however they see fit, not withstanding that federal law may take a different approach,” said Edwards.
     
    However, Montgomery said the AMMA goes beyond decriminalization because the application approval process gives state and local government employees an active role in facilitating marijuana use and sales. He also cited cases from other states where the federal government has punished individual citizens who are breaking federal laws by using, growing and selling medical marijuana under state laws.
     
    “No one is saying there's not a conflict [between state and federal law]. The argument is whether or not there's a way to weasel around the federal prohibitions and I just don't think there is,” said Montgomery. “If people want to have marijuana for medicine there is a way to do it. But because of the regulatory scheme established by Congress, that has to go through Congress.”

    Justin and Shona,
     
    I completely agree, and note that this is true for every industry, not just marijuana. No one wants their collective, business, or operation closed, and limits on how many operators can exist only serve to keep prices higher and quality lower. Thanks for articulating these important truths.
     
    Despite the ban that now exists on paper, there are still tons of dispensaries in Los Angeles. Arguing for more regulations on them than exist now (e.g. giving the authorities an avenue to develop a partial ban in the form of more workable controls and limits they might be able to actually enforce) doesn't seem to me like "creating policies that improve access to cannabis" per ASA's stated mission.
     
    I'm glad to hear ASA is supporting a referendum to overturn the ban, and would urge them to focus their L.A. efforts on this, rather than on promoting "sensible" regulation.

    Americans for Safe Access has undertaken a controversial program to call Obama to account for his broken mmj campaign pledge and his attack on mmj providers in California, Washington, Colorado and Oregon. To learn more about their program, Steph Sherer, Executive Director of Americans for Safe Access, will be our featured guest on the Monday, Sept. 3 at 6 p.m. broadcast and simulcast of our radio show Marijuana Compassion and Common Sense.
     
    Steph will explain the program that will print and distribute 100,000 posters in Presidential swing states like Colorado and Nevada. The posters ask the question, "Can Broken Promises Lose an Election? 1 Million Medical Marijuana Patients Will Decide.”

    Critics have charged that the campaign will take votes away from Obama thereby insuring Romney’s victory in the swing states in which they will be distributed. Steph Sherer has written that the purpose of the campaign is to warn Obama that he may very well lose states like Colorado, key to his victory, as many mmj and mj reform voters will vote for one of the third party candidates who support ending marijuana prohibition and the rights of mmj patients rather than vote for him.
     
    If he doesn’t take a more enlightened view of marijuana, he could lose the election because so many patients and marijuana consumers will vote for a candidate who supports their views – a view which just happens to also be the view of the majority of Democratic voters in every poll about medical marijuana and marijuana legalization.
     
    Obama needs to be confronted with not only the horrors his attack on medical marijuana providers has caused, but also that he is out of touch with the majority of Democratic voters and legislators. ASA intends to do just that.
     
    One of those people who would also like to do that and to take votes from Obama and Romney and everyone else is our second guest Bruce Cain. A dedicated medical marijuana activist who has thrown his hat into the political ring as an independent candidate for President, Bruce will explain why he is running, how he plans to reach out to voters and why it is critical for mmj patients and law reform advocates to get actively involved in the political process.
     
    Tune in this Monday, Sept. 3 at 6 p.m. to hear Steph and Bruce discuss strategies to get marijuana into the Presidential campaign. Listen in this Monday at 6 p.m. and every Monday at 6 p.m. for the award winning radio show Marijuana Compassion and Common Sense on IE talk radio KCAA 1050AM and simulcast at www.kcaaradio.com.

    Glad to hear your alright.! Truly, it was so sudden and excited for your
    next chapter. I know what your saying about engery and frustration. And
    you've engraved this image of these monkeys fucking the foot ball in my
    mind and it makes shameful and suprised sense , prefect sense. That's
    exactly the perfect picture of the state of things. Not sure how we stop
    the monkeys from humping the football? Might make perfect sense just to
    leave them to their own devices.

    Hi Shona! You mention a "request for transparent planning for 2014 draft"
    in your email to Kubby. I have news about this. Last week-end at the
    Seattle Hempfest, we held a meeting of 13 people with representatives from
    the two 2012 initiatives (Regulate Marijuana Like Wine and Repeal Cannabis
    Prohibition) for the purpose of uniting around one 2014 California
    initiative. Judge Jim Gray chaired the meeting, which also included Steve
    Collette & Steve Kubby from RMLW; Bill Panzer, Omar Figueroa, Frank Lucido
    & myself from Repeal Cannabis Prohibition; Amanda Rain from Oaksterdam U;
    Kristin Nevedal from Emerald Growers Association, and Granddaddy Mike. It
    was productive and positive. At the end we all pledged to put aside our
    differences and work together for one united 2014 initiative. We decided
    to meet again after the Nov election to hash out particulars, including
    wording, consensus decision-making, and who speaks for the group. We
    rejected one thing, i.e., language that would include any new marijuana
    penalties, such as the DUI penalties in I-502. By competing in 2012, we
    failed to move forward; by collaborating as one voice, we can win in 2014.

    My advice to Steve,loveingly .. pls answer my request for transperant
    planning for 2014 draft

    Your right in many ways,problem in my eyes with our past policy efforts and
    creating was it was non inclusive therefore unbalanced and recent history
    shows that's how momentum and more importantly trust is lost.

    With Texas being a free and independent state unimpaired to all the states,having at all times the inalienable right to alter,reform or abolish their government in such manner as they think expedient..How would the rest of the states fare if we could pass a "unrestricted" compassionate act like 215 there? Could We use that to change the Federal Law?And has this path been tried before? Just curious since it should be All for one & one for All.

    I-502 Campaign manager Alison Holcomb Bumped Her Head
    Posted by Mickey Martin on August 30th, 2012
    In what I can only call one of the most insensitive and blatantly false statements made in the press by a supposed cannabis activist, or whatever she is, I-502 Campaign Manager Alison Holcomb managed to dismiss and demean the struggle faced by those prosecuted for medical cannabis crimes over the past 15 plus years.
    Here is what she said from an article on the Seattle Post-Intelligencer website:
    Alison Holcomb, campaign manager for I-502, argued that the initiative has been “thoughtfully crafted to foster dialogue with the federal government.”  She said there is no precedent for the feds cracking down on a state where voters have spoken.
    >“The federal government’s policy, where states have legalized marijuana for medical purposes, has been to respect voters decisions, work cooperatively with the states, and save enforcement for large-scale operations that fall outside the parameters of the law,” Holcomb said.
    Has this woman lost her fucking mind? I mean really? Is she just that out of touch with reality? Did you just say that it was the Feds policy to “respect voter’s decisions?” That is an absurd statement, Ms. Holcomb; and you owe a lot of people a fucking apology. Our brothers and sisters sit in prison today on 5- 10- 15- and up to 22 year sentences in some cases for operating WITHIN the parameters of state law.
    Your assertion that everyone that has been targeted basically had it coming makes my blood boil. It is bad enough you helped author I-502, the WORST CANNABIS INITIATIVE EVER WRITTEN; but for you to try and promote your campaign by blatantly LYING and ACCUSING good people who have made the ultimate sacrifice to ensure patients get their medicine is INFURIATING.
    I demand a fucking apology.
    I have remained relatively quiet on the debacle that is WA State’s I-502 initiative. But if their campaign director is willing to throw our entire community under the bus and make our political prisoners into some deserving group of outlaws that got what they had coming because they operated “outside the parameters of the law,” then I have no choice but to use my voice to try and sink her battleship.
    The Yes on I-502 campaign has made the political calculation that they do not need the support of the cannabis community. They wrote the law to appease to the political right, law enforcement, and the opposition in hopes of gaining the support of more soccer moms and people on the fence. The way they went about doing that is dangerous, and not very appealing to the average cannabis user.
    This statement by Holcomb in Seattle’s largest paper sums up the entire campaign strategy…..”Fuck the stoners. They are all a bunch of criminals that want to drive stoned, grow as much weed as they can, and profit off the black market.” That is literally the attacks that “activists” on the campaign, like Dominic Holden, have been making on people who do not support I-502.
    “Fuck you, drug dealer intoxicated driver asshole who wants to grow his own plants.”
    Yeah….well FUCK YOU TOO.
    If Alison Holcomb wants to use her platform to make outrageous assertions that the Federal Government’s actions over the years in investigating, prosecuting, incarcerating, and ruining the lives of good people is somehow justified then she deserves to burn in hell. Anyone who would make blanket statements that convict our cannabis brothers and sisters of crimes they did not commit is an ENEMY OF CANNABIS FREEDOM.
    We do not need people like this in our ranks, and we certainly do not need them making statements on behalf of cannabis consumers in the press. Alison Holcomb is a traitor and a BOLDFACE LIAR. 
    As a person who has been followed for two years, had their garbage rifled through, had their home and business raided by armed gunmen, and who spent 4 years- 5 weeks- and a day under the thumb of the USDOJ for making weed brownies for sick people, it is disgusting to think that this person is supposedly representing a “pro-cannabis” position and making statements like this.
    Ms. Holcomb can go climb back under whatever rock she climbed out from over there at the ACLU. Cannabis supporters and providers deserve better than to be disparaged by her. The ACLU should be ashamed of their poster girl running off at the mouth and justifying the terrorism that has been the actions of the Feds on the medical cannabis community for many years.
    The statement is unacceptable and I will be awaiting my fucking apology.

    I am and always will be, decline to state. Party affiliations are a
    cancer that need to be snuffed out. I would sooner join a religion than
    a political party. Here, I'll pretend I'm a party affiliate.
     
    MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    Sorry but no caps nor restrictive monopoly building. All for one and one
    for all. No patient wants their collective closed. Limits on how many only
    serve the few and keep price high and qaulity often suffer. Thanks asa for
    great work but let's not support only your clients let's support everyone .
