the other side of Lifting Up the Less Fortunate

From: Richard Muller – November 22, 2012

Hi all,   Its easy to say someone else is a greedy ass, and prop 215 was supposed to be for the patients, when you have not invested up to year of your life, rent for a year, cost of starting up is ridiculous, risked 20 years or more of federal jail time, to serve someone you have never met, who expects you to give them some medicine free.  Shona, her group, and I are poor people who have both benefited from the compassion of clubs that are successful.    There is a point in your life when your federally illegal distribution (MCD) has to pay for the rent, new stock, taxes, insurance,  and salaries or the seed money runs out and you go out of business. For most clubs that is about the point when at least 150 people come in the club. That is the point when volunteers start getting low wages as they have had to volunteer their time as there was no money for wages until more people become repeat customers. it take a flow of paying customers to be able to give away cannabis free for the poor…..fact is it takes money to be compassionate.   Thank god some give back to those less fortunate.  I want to thank the many compassionate folks who helped me in the past.  I would name them but that would potentially make them targets.    It seems to me that the more I give the more I get….try doing that, instead of taking try giving even if that is just your time, and see if your cup fills by some miracle. Shona shows up in support with her group, giving her time and in return some of the more able have helped her and her group.   Give a little of your self even if it is just your time…volunteer at the clubs, most need help until they are self supporting   Richard Muller

Good luck with that. Stand out in the heat all day supporting collectives and co-op’s to remain open in San Diego and all they did was nothing, no water or and thing offered to the people supporting them to keep their business, goes to show all they cared about was the money, not what it was intended for. Personally I am glad to see them go, hopefully any new ones will understand what prop 215 and SB-420 were created for…..PATIENTS not business’s

From: Richard Muller – Marijuana town adopts tax to push out pot growers – AP State News – The Sacramento Bee – November 7, 2012

Hi all,

Hopefully California’s Legalization effort will not mean we enslave ourselves will unlimited City taxes, county taxes, growing taxes permits @ fees, state sales taxes, federal taxes, and local MCD permit fees, license fee’s and any other Sir, Sin or wanking tax’s. Get real this time, and put a combined ceiling on the tax, fee, and permit portion of legalization.

Or the punishers will tax us until we are all criminals again like Moonshiners.

Just my 2 cents

Marijuana town adopts tax to push out pot growers

The Associated Press
Published: Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2012 – 12:57 pm
ARCATA, Calif. — Voters in the heart of California’s marijuana-growing Emerald Triangle have overwhelmingly adopted a stiff new tax on electricity to push large-scale indoor pot growers out of town.
Voters in Arcata, Calif., voted 69 percent to 32 percent on Tuesday in favor of Measure I.
Mayor Michael Winkler said the vote shows even though people in Arcata are pretty liberal about marijuana, they want the large indoor growing operations out of their neighborhoods.
Winkler says the 45 percent tax on households using three times the normal amount of electricity should go into effect by the middle of next year.
If growers don’t leave, Winkler says he will ask voters to raise the tax even more.
He also hopes to persuade neighboring communities to take similar steps.
