Unfortunately, yes, to some degree. There are crooks on our side too..or at least they claim to be on our side. Big money in medical cannabis..cannabis in general. Big money crooks vie for "top dog" in this arena, just like politics.

What bills are you talking about?
Same with "VOTE NO ON BILLS "...my point all along was that the bills were going to pass, and we should be more concerned about helping word them better, not trying to block them. I took an ass whipping for that position. At the end of the day..how did it turn out?
Compromising with them on wording leads some representatives to believe we are actually happy with changes when we are not, and helps bills pass. It's why they compromise in the first place.

This was in regards for the bills passed last Thursday. Once a bill is scheduled, and close to being heard, you can yell all you want about saying no...it's going to be heard. Once a bill is scheduled, as in this situation, all you can do successfully is lobby for positive wording. Sure, you can TECHNICALLY call for a no vote...but history proves that fruitless on bills of any type.

I agree with you 100% our mmj law should not be changed at all. I didnt agree to any new rules at all. I agreed to follow the law in accordance with the mmj act

The problem is..That will not happen...no law ever stays as written very long. And most have the initial flurry of changes soon after they are enacted. It's what bills and legislature are about...it's how they work. Especially with "peoples Initiative" laws...they are notoriously poorly worded. Who he won't admit that if whoever had penned this law, had added maybe 2 more paragraphs, that we wouldn't be arguing any of this?

I swear most of you do not want total legalization.

Ozzrock...I'm consistent...that what confuses you. Timmahh was never consistent...only consistently "fear mongering" or changing direction to mis lead.
