ZAZ: "We thought the word 'dispensary' was just too dangerous and would cause us to lose at the polls," he said.

Pot backers offered a compromise to get public support and are now being held to their word.


mhmm
should have just gone with the:
legal to buy and sell to all adults.
retail and wholesale allowed.
age restrictions the same as tobacco or alcohol or which ever is higher.
taxes to be collected by the same people who collect alc and tobacco taxes.
no limits on sales
no limits on possession
DUI/DWI to apply as it currently does
increased punishments for selling to a minor
commercial and private growing allowed. period.

automatic firing of LEOs for harassing, buyers, sellers, users

Marijuana needs its own 21st Amendment, ending federal prohibition and giving all power over this to individual states. (It's constitutional for a state to ban alcohol if it chooses.)

DownDaRiver: MichiganFTL: DownDaRiver: You tottally missed the point of my comment.

No, I think I understand you were going for the 'How can you be taken seriously if you name your 'medication' Spaceship Stardoodle'? But I'm just saying that people have no problem with buying a pill which is named after the letters Pfizer threw at a dartboard.

No, you don't understand.
Pfizer et al, have legal standing to market and sell their products. They are accepted wholy world-wide and have been for a long, long time.
I'm not saying their products are competely safe and should be used without care or judgement.
But they aren't up against a battle to have their product legalized and accepted for sale.
I don't smoke anymore, haven't for years but I'm not against smokers and I do feel that there are benifits for sufferers of many ailments.
I was simply trying to point out that if you are trying to pursuade law and opinion. That it might be benificial to your cause if you simply toned down the hippy-dippy references and names for the products you are trying to get approved for "medical" treatments.


Viagra, Aciphex (ass effects,) Ayds, Inderal (End 'er all,) Vagisil.

Camel, Pal Mal, Lucky Strike, Kool, Old Gold.

Won't even get into the stupid alcohol names.

Seems silly product naming gets by everywhere. That isn't the problem and to focus on that instead of the actual concerns seems a bit red herring-ish by those who would use that to detract from the substance of the debate. If it were truly about the name, we could simply call it by the chemical name everyone knows and make it all scientific sounding and the argument would be over.

It's still legal to grow if you have a medical marijuana card, and there are plenty of people who have cards who grow a lot more than the use. Some people get their card just so they can grow it and make money.

This won't affect that much - instead of selling to a dispensary, they'll sell directly to other people.

...besides, blame California dispensaries and their adjacent Doctor Feelgood offices where anybody can get a script for $25 because of "stress". Voters didn't pass the law so pot use would become common place; they voted for it out of compassion for people with chronic pain or terminal illnesses.

alice_600: See that is the other thing that doesn't make it believable as a cure for anything and the medicinal thing is just an excuse to smoke the shiat. if you were average Joe would you take a medication labeled Moonbeam Rainbows?


No, let's just take a medication called  (5R,9R,13S,14S)-4,5α-epoxy-14-hydroxy-3-methoxy-17-methylmorph inan-6-one.

Look, I don't even smoke the stuff, but I'd rather have people use this than all of the violence in this gd state that is related to Vicodin, Percocet, Oxy, Roxy, Dilaudid, etc.

Yes, there's the risk of cancer because you're smoking something, but have you read what kind of side effects you get with long-term use of anything I described? Oh, and let's not talk about the thousands of deaths related to those 'legal' pharmaceuticals. At the end of the day, if I had a choice between 'Moonbeam Rainbows' that was regulated by the state so I could know for sure what I'm getting like we do with current pharmaceuticals and  (5R,9R,13S,14S)-4,5α-epoxy-14-hydroxy-3-methoxy-17-methylmorph inan-6-one, I'm going to choose Moonbeam Rainbows.

But it seems to me, that if they are hoping to help sufferers of chronic pain related to things like spinal surgery and glaucoma.
Maybe it isn't good PR to go up against local - state - federal, opinion and law when you're marketing "medical" treatment products that go by the product names of Moonshine Haze and Tangerine Trainwreck.

Hey look it's a couple people who don't know crap about cannabis being used medically. Cannabis has several distinct genetic lineages which are appropriate for different maladies (need to eat something after your chemo? Try indica or a hybrid thereof) and these lineages have been combined in thousands of ways by many people all over the world, seeking various affects. These names are basically a record of that genetic lineage which helps people judge which strain is most appropriate for their condition.

21st was only needed because there was an 18th.  Adding one to "end" a "federal prohibition" on something the constitution gives it no power to prohibit in the first place would be dividing by zero.

You want to know the real reason for this?  They can't explain to their children why there is a pot shop on the corner.  It's a constant reminder how full of shiat they are.

Way to write that ballot initiative dumbasses.  Judge interpreted the law correctly.  Not their fault it was written so poorly.

Michigan is getting super derpy, so I doubt a reworded initiative will pass next go round.  Calvinists in the west side of the state and rednecks everywhere else.

A boon for the black market. Nicely done, Michigan SCOTUS. Making it harder for people to access their medication is such honorable jurisprudence.
