You really think there would be enough growers showing up daily, all over the State, to insure an everyday easy to find sytem to patients? wow, that's a bit o organizing skills. Hats off to anyone that can organize that...And figure out how to account for and tax all those sales? If some one can organize that, and make it work, while keeping the general populace happy...I'll bow down to them as a god.....I've run a lot of businesses..and that sounds a bit much to handle for me...

The current model works because it IS only open 1 day week....the growers show up because it's the only day they can. At 7 days per week, you have to not only find more growers, you have to schedule them so that every day is balanced. Can't just let them show up when they want, you'd have days when no one came(or only a few)
Again..not arguing. trying to picture the financials

I could organize that no problem and so could you. If there was a farmer's market open daily farmer's could schedule what days they are there and also there could be a dispensary at the market where farmer's can have their meds. So as a farmer I could go on the website, schedule my days and have meds at the facility for patients that cannot be there when I am, or they know me and my meds and just want to pick them up.
Bob, I am sorry bro but you sound completely full of shit the last few days. You are a smart guy and you could argue for this or against it all day no problem. I am not going to participate cuz you guys have driven each other mad.
There is no doubt in my mind I could open and operate a UP wide farmer's market. You, the corporate man, scared of the complexities of a farmer's market vs. dispensary. You are clearly just fucking with us.

The context of prohibition is relevant... THAT is the clear picture. How many decades of refer madness type propaganda and you think people can all see the truth about how harmless this healing herb is...? No, unfortunately the status quo smoe can't completely get over the programming we have been spoon fed by our own government for decades. This will take time to unravel these lies perpetuated by officials and big pharma. This is a perception war and I don't think that buying-in to these fears of past are going to make the world a better place.
The biggest problem with FM vs another highly regulated overpriced distribution model is mainly, COMPETITION. I don't think that I'd want to invest all my dough and tireless energy into a pro-vision center dist model, only to find the FM's drawing away so much of my business. Why not just align yourself with lawmakers and politicians and knock 'em the f' out.
Do you ever ask yourself why ppl buy food at farmers markets over a grocery store when they can? Because it is better for the people! Usually it's as healthy or more, and certainly far more affordable. It shouldn't be either or, it should be both.

What are you talking about?

It's not just the complexity of organizing it. It's that the cost of that organization has to be paid for. The web site for the organization..who runs it? How do they get paid? The accountant's..how do they get paid? The funding for all the infrastructure to run the operation, has to come from the markets themselves...that would raise the prices at markets to dispensary levels.

With only 5 places to serve Detroit, the funneling effect would be problematic in itself.

we have tons of young people who are going to these "drs for hire" to get a card. sad. i dont think anything, including pot, is totally harmless. in fact, i have seen the laziness this seems to attack the young, from it. nothing is perfect. but i do see the end of mmj comming. it was not intended to have gotten this out of hand. just heard on the radio, that the big city here, is on its way to closeing down all dispensarys inside the city limits. im sure, that my city, the next biggest, will follow suit. well, if this happens, well, ......it will work out.

Yes I agree you only reported it. With a little snidness in there as always. But you know as well as I do that will not happen. There is not a pharmacy that would touch it without fed approval. At least not till the feds say its ok then the pharmacy will have it all and trust me they are awaitin for it.
