    Please Help Local Nevada Growers to Keep Their Right and Keep Growing – Change or Defeat SB 374!!!


    The poorly thought out Senate Bill 374 is slowly moving through Nevada’s inefficient legislative process and we have ONLY 2 WEEKS to persuade the sponsors to remove the amendment that will make home growing illegal or ask Senate Finance Committee and Assembly Judicial Committee to NOT PASS the bill as it is written.

    The bill wants to allow for dispensaries to open but makes personal home cultivation illegal.

    Please help!!! We are running out of time. A slot was done and our outrage was heard and responded to, but we need more voices to be heard!!! We NEED to send as many emails as possible to the email addresses of the both committees’ members (listed below) and urge them to NOT pass this unconstitutional bill that will marginalize law abiding patients and cut their access to the medication all together since they will no longer be able to afford it, as dispensary prices will have hefty fees on top of high prices.

    Please write short, effective but polite letters (rudeness and anger will only work against us at these crucial last weeks) to the addresses below and urge them NOT TO PASS THIS BILL until the NO GROW Amendment is REMOVED!

    [email protected] , [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected]

    ALSO Please contact the bill’s sponsors and ask them to RECONSIDER the no grow amendment and REWRITE THE BILL at the following addresses:
    [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected]

    And last but not the least PLEASE leave an ‘AGAINST’ comment here:

    https://www.leg.state.nv.us/App/Opinions/77th2013/A/

    (you can view existing comments here http://www.leg.state.nv.us/AppCF/Opinion/77th2013/vwComments.cfm
    Just type sb374 in the window and click submit)


    Right now EVERY EMAIL COUNTS! SO send emails, call, ask your friends to do the same. We need to show that we will not just lay down and die. We ARE AGAINST this measure and they NEED TO KNOW that!!!

    Together we can WIN!!!

    Who really thinks SB374 is going to stop anyone from growing legally in NV? I read the bill, not only were there exceptions sited. Also 1) there isn't a single state in the country that has legal mmmj and doesn't let patients grow their own, and 2) is says right in the bill you can sell to dispensories (all be it once). where do they think that was grown? Whos growing for the shops for the first 7 months till they grow any decent flowers of their own in house? What lawyer worth a shit couldnt eat through this for a legal mmj patient within the limits set, and still in place for patients? I can not however explain why the verbage is in the bill at all, less its what the sinics think. A lot of whats said in the bill conflicts with itself IMO. It will be rewriten, they all have been, and I guess if ill type all this I'll write to tell them to get on rewriting it, not saying no to it.

    You said your outrage was heard and responded to, what did thay say?? That should be posted in this thread also before you tell everyone to write.

    But,.. if the sinics are right and its truly the intent of our state gov to take away the rghit to grow to profit as much as they can off mmj,..... I say you will never stop that, and everyone better just go back in their holes. I'd calll false alarm and say just go on growing about your business as usual,.. maybe think of moving to another state.

    I read there is only like 3-4000 of us anyway, can we get some kind of reservation set aside?.. Maybne we can get relocated by the goverment under some form of religious persicution. ha


    better days are coming, one way or another

    I sent some emails to our douche reps. and suggested to we continue to have home grows to offset the high dispensary prices since many of us are on fixed incomes, etc. I also said dispensaries would be a good idea for some patients that can't grow due to space or disabilities. If they pass something that takes our right away to grow they'll lose a good 7 year customer and I'll go "commando" in a blink of the eye. I do everything I can to stay legal but if this goes through... why bother? They ain't that stupid are they?

    It's only $150 and absolutely zero cents to start a collective? Well shitballs Im in too! I really don't think they are that stupid Moldy, but then i read the things some folks type and...

    Still would really love to know the response that was gotten to all this Anteah. Don't care how dead this forum has been, you start something like this thread, posting more than twice on this site would be prudent imo. What did they say?

    I can't wait to see the line out the door and down all of LVB to get in on the only 40 dispensorie licences to be handed out, haha, bring a tent.

    $10 fee on each prescription transaction? lol... I love to watch old white men fumble through trying to do what stoners have done since before this patch of desert was even a state. Way to kill walk in dime bag sales morons.

    Initial cultivation license cost of $3,000, plus a $1,000-a-year renewal fee is interesting verbage i dont recall in the last draft of the bill. Wonder if thats just more fees for dispensory owners, or something a seperate entity can pick up. I love the +1000' from a school clause in everyting. Because we all know nugs tend to jump out of jars and into the pockets of kids when they're within 1000 feet. Our government has retarded the education of our children just as long as everyone else in society on cannabis, might as well let the kids know the truth now too since its only 2013 and all.

    That part of the bill didn't make sense to you either, or what I said didn't? haha

    The part that really makes no sense to me is saying we're going to AZ plant limits (12) AND, oh btw you can't grow once shops open. Who thinks dispensaries grow 12 plants per owner? I don't know what's worse, that hypocrisy within the bill, or the lack of addressing the real numbers of plants shops and people can grow. Just saying, 'we're going to AZ's plant numbers' seems sloppy and lazy as all hell to me. The lawmakers writing this bill are all high as a kite no doubt.

    PS: I see lines in this redraft crossed out in red, that wasn't even in the last draft, concerning how to determine a plants maturity, which AZ doesn't even do. It's like 4 people are writing the bill at once and no ones talking to anyone else. Thank god these assholes aren't going to the the ones growing the medicine, ha.

    AgainstI was in support of subject bill but have concerns over the wording that prohibits someone from growing there own medicine if a collective is operating in there county of residency. My father is a medical marijauna patient who is on social security. Currently he grows his own medicine at very little cost to himself. If a collective was to open in his county he would no longer be able to afford his medicine as most people would not be able to. I would see more tourists with California cards support these establishments than Nevada Patients. Currently my dad has found certain strains that help his conditions. Most collectives grow the popular strains and not what works for certain individuals. Assuming the high costs and strict guidelines they will face they are going to grow what sales fast and makes them money not what an individual patient might need. I appreciate your time and support in this matter.May-28-2013ForPlease allow the citizens of Nevada to grow their own medicineMay-27-2013AgainstI Have been a medical marijuana patient in NV since 2006, I would be for this bill if the No Grow amendment was removed. We mmj patients have been able to cultivate our own medicine for over 10 years now. We mmj patients have spent time and money into setting up our grows and learning to cultivate quality cannabis to meet our medical needs. Patients are suppose to have access to cannibus already, its part of the law already. But the state of NV has failed to acknowledge this. I do support having establishments to dispense cannibus but patients should NOT have the right to grow their own taken away!May-25-2013AgainstMay-24-2013ForMay-23-2013AgainstMay-23-2013ForMay-23-2013ForMay-23-2013AgainstThe part of the bill that makes home growing illegal if dispensary opens in your area is unamerican and unconstitutional and will make it very hard for poor people to obtain their medication.May-22-2013AgainstWhen Senator Hutchison testified at the last Senate Finance Committee meeting on this bill, he stated that we should lose our right to grow because the Government needs to control medical marijuana "from seed to weed" or some such trite slogan. Well this is probably true with the large scale cultivators this bill creates; but we current grower patients have always been controlled from "seed to weed" by virtue of the fact that we're limited to Seven Plants. There have been no law enforcement problems with patients who have stuck within the guidelines. This is nothing more than a special interest money grab and not for the benefit us patients. Collect your dispensary taxes from tourists and new patients who elect not to grow their own. Don't put this boondoggle on our backs!May-22-2013Againstabsolutely unbelievable to me that the state & the fed govnt can't get this straightened out. Why pass the laws to legalize it then make it unavailable for patients that are prescribed it. The govnt needs to stay out of medical issues HIPPA laws mean anything to u you people What goes on between a Dr & they're patient is no one else's business period. The govnt is getting way to involved in personal business & it needs to stop The people of this state voted to legalize marijuana We live in a democracy last time I checked Stay out of our personal lives & concentrate all your efforts on more crucial issue like all the illegal immigrants that are in this country & are committing health insurance fraud. Or the lack of jobs for Americans in this country. This is what u guys decide to fight on to stop? This is a republic, the people have spoken Doesn't that matter anymore? Prioritize your issues this is just ridiculous to waste our tax money etc to fight the inevitable. U guys r gonna make a profit on it if its sold legally so relax already Whats next illegal cigarettes?May-22-2013Against9. Sec 22. Sub.6 Page 20 Lines 35 to 45, and page 21 Lines 1- 4 need to be deleted. It has been mandated that we must grow our own and now you want us to stop? No Way. 10. Sec 22.5 Page 21 (f) Remove/Delete Patient's should be allowed to sell their extra meds to help recover costs. Cooperatives/Collectives need to be addressed in the bill. Many patients would like to grow collectively to help reduce costs. 11. Sec 24.7. 372A.070 Sub 1(b)- Sub.7 Recommend to be deleted-removed. The Hippy vendetta again? Thank you for your time, J. George & David J. McDonough PS by Dave What is the thinking behind Sec24.7(b) to the end of page Line 44-3 on page 25. When you read line 4 No.7. It makes all the previous Sec 24.7 point less. If it (Sec 24.7 sub 7) is removed, that makes Cannabis subject to this outrageous tax. Is this a punishment tax to prevent Medicinal sales places from selling LSD or Morphine? Who would register as a dealer in controlled substances? This was thought up by a law enforcement mentality, wasn’t it? Delete the hole Sec 24.7.May-22-2013Againstremoving the right for patients to grow the own medication was not the purpose of this bill. The purpose was to provide better access for those who are unable to grow their own medication, which is not easy. Instead it was turned into a business to create marijuana tourism to Las Vegas and has nothing to do with the medical community any more. Completely wrong and totally against the the original purpose of medical marijuana. Remove that amendment and I would be for this bill.May-22-2013AgainstI spent $1,800 on a mini-split air conditioner to cool my sealed closet garden. What am I going to cool now, shoes? I'm all good and don't want or need your Gvmt Weed, which is grown by profiteers and sold by licensed drug dealers. Shame on anyone who votes for this sham.May-22-2013AgainstI'd like to see a place where we can purchase cannabis but please give us the right to grow since I'm on a fixed income and can't afford to buy it. I have spent over 500 dollars in the past 6-7 years for equipment and I have seeds for the next 2-3 years. Please consider removing the part the takes away home grow. It's the only way to keep the dispensaries honest. Thank you, Craig BuehlerMay-22-2013AgainstWhy would you make growing your own illegal? How insane is that. NO other states laws about medical cannabis is as messed up as nevadasMay-22-2013AgainstLoyal patients for years have no reason to register themselves in this case abiding by laws then get s smack to the face outta nowhere wouldnt be fair to the ones who have been loyal.May-22-2013AgainstJust Say No To Tickweed!May-22-2013AgainstI was for this bill now I am against it. I cannot afford overpriced expensive medication. Please do not take my right to grow medical marijuana away from me. I strongly urge you to not allow this bill with this amendment in it as you will make thousands of law abiding citizens criminals which we are not. Please we do not deserve this .May-21-2013AgainstI would like to express my concerns regarding Amendment 333 to SB374. The Amendment 333 would disallow patients from growing their own medicine and require patients to purchase medicine from "For- Profit" dispensaries. This will create a financial burden for many patients. It already costs a patient approximately $500.00 to obtain a medical marijuana card, many patients are not even able to afford this much less be forced to purchase medicine through a for-profit dispensaries. The bill does not expand the right of patients, to cultivate their own medicine. I feel that we as patients should be able to cultivate our own medicine and not be forced to purchase medicine from others.May-21-2013AgainstI am against this bill as it will prevent law obiding medical patients to affordably grow their own medication and will make them purchase it at exorbitant prices, eliminating most of which from the program all together. It is not a progress. This bill is essentially marginalizes those who are not well off and restricts their access to the medication all together.May-21-2013ForMay-19-2013AgainstPlease do not pass this bill. I am a medical marijuana card holder and it would be very unfair to not allow me to grow my own medicine. Here is why.... 1) I grow very clean, by organic means. I know I do not have lung problems and I trust my own medicine and do not like any other persons growing methods. I am very clean/sanitary. 2) I have beautiful plants, that I actually love like my own pets. I don't have any pets. My strains where very difficult to obtain and some were very costly. I found amazing plants. I have the best. Its not fair to take them away from me. 3) I have spent money on education. It took years of networking and reading to learn to grow. 4) I believe you guys need to learn more about the subject before you change it. An ounce is more like $140.00. $250.00 - $600.00 is absurd. No weed is good enough to be $600.00/oz. 5) This bill will take hydroponics shops out of business. 6) You are not going to be guaranteed to get all of the application fees if people cant grow our own. We are very picky people. I want my own. 7) Different plants have different affects, for example, some strains make you hungry, some do not. Some make you get to sleep, some do not. Some make you have no pain, some do not. I have the varieties I need, for my specific ailments. That information is not always easily available. I had to research this, and I was very lucky I found someone who wasn't too paranoid to talk to me. The strains in the dispensaries may not be able to be researched easily or wont work for my ailments. Or mine may not be available. 8) These plants are very needy. It would be difficult to get growing operations going in bulk. They need a great deal of attention. Who is going to grow for the dispensaries ? I just feel that not enough is known on the subject. Please consider my comments. It would really affect my life negatively if you chose to not let me grow anymore. Sincerely, Lori Radtke [email protected]-17-2013AgainstI joined the medical marijuana program in Nevada to get away from drug dealers! Amendment 333 will force patients to buy from you Nazi's, or go without medicine? I guess I shouldn't expect any less from my elected officials, I mean, drug dealers! just so you guys know, most of the patients are, low or fixed income. You people are sneaky, underhanded backstabbers, this system should be non-profit, by patients, for patients. I hope this doesn't pass, I'll have to move out of Nevada.May-16-2013ForMay-14-2013AgainstAfter seven years of legally growing my own medicine; I refuse to give up my right to continue legally growing my own. I will not pay inflated prices to a dispensary where their only growing prerequisite is to win a lottery for a dispensary license. It was very sneaky to add the 25 mile no-grow rule as a non-debated amendment. I doubt the 25 mile rule is even constitutional under equal protection. It's being challenged in Arizona.May-10-2013ForIs this going to pass?May-09-2013ForMedical marijuana patients in Nevada have no legal way to obtain their medication.May-09-2013ForMay-08-2013ForThe bill is well written and well thought out. Pass it please and let's create some jobs!May-07-2013AgainstDo not pass this bill as amended. The intent of this bill was to give card holders a way to legally obtain Medical grade Marijuana. This is sorely needed and long over due. Those that do not have the physical ability or expertise required to cultivate Medical grade Marijuana will now have a safe way to obtain it. Great work! But please do not take away the Card holders privilege to cultivate there own. Allow those that can cultivate there own to donate Medical grade Marijuana to the non profit dispensaries. Lets not lose sight that these are sick people in need of medicine. Do not burden them with this financial impact. Save the heavy regulation and heavy taxes for the recreational use of Marijuana that is only a few years away.May-06-2013AgainstThis amendment removes the right of patients to cultivate their own medicine and forces all patients to pay inflated prices at the for proffit dispensaries.May-06-2013ForMay-05-2013ForApr-30-2013ForApr-30-2013AgainstI'm 100 % disabled. I have been part of the medical marijuana program for years. This new admendment will prevent me from growing my own and I can't afford to go to a dispensery. I will have to go back on opiates which I don't want to do because I can't function as well.Apr-30-2013ForThis needs to happen. Nevada is way behind in their progressive thinking.Apr-29-2013AgainstWhen this bill was first brought up it was an OK bill but now!!! NOT OK at all!! The state has forced us for 13 years to grow our own, many of us have spent $3000 to $5000 to set up a growing area in our homes. NOW you are going to tell us we can't grow once a dispensary is in place? This is completely unfair!!! It takes many months to figure out how to grow the things & many weeks of reading & watching videos to learn how to make the products we need when our plants are ready. Some of us find it very relaxing to tend to our plants. This bill was supposed to BENEFIT the patients not be a cash cow for a few dispensaries & the state. If you remove our right to grow you will also put many hydroponics stores out of business! There will be a number of patients who will register because they would be able to purchase legally. There are some who will leave the state if they aren't allowed to grow their own. PLEASE do what's RIGHT for the patients KEEP our right to grow! If you don't someone will probably sue so lets do this Right, since it's taken 13 years to get to this point. Take care of your constituents!Apr-29-2013ForMost of the bill sounds good except one thing. The bottom of page 20. It is really important to still allow the patients to grow their own medicine. The dispensaries would have to much control if they are the only way to get the medicine. Not to mention a lot of people do not have the money to pay for it. It is cheaper for them to grow there own. If the patients cant grow there own then i would be against the bill.Apr-29-2013ForSell it and TAX it!Apr-29-2013ForI am a legitimate patient who needs medical cannabis to function a normal life and I do not have safe access to it. I cannot grow it because of where I live and the only other option is the street. I need safe access to medicine for my medical DISEASE. Please help us patients obtain proper tested medicine.Apr-26-2013ForThis is a very important Bill that needs to be approved. The Human Beings that it impacts are in dire need of what it will make possible and allow. It will harm no one while it will relieve the pain and suffereing that some people must endure in thier life. Please be compassionate and helpful in your decision.Apr-25-2013ForApr-25-2013ForIt raises taxes for education and other important community services. Avoiding a black market reduces criminal activity. Marijuana is important medicine for some people and is currently difficult to obtain.Apr-24-2013AgainstApr-24-2013ForI am a 56 year old female that loves to vote in this state. I am also a medical marijuana patient that would love to be able to walk into a store front and purchase my medicine rather then to have to go to the streets and give my money to the drug cartels. I would much rather walk into a store front and purchase my medicine along with knowing that my tax dollars regarding this purchase goes to my state of Nevada instead of some drug cartel that scares the hell out of me anytime I have to go near them. Due to my health I am not able to grow my own medicine as our current laws allow. Therefore, I am forced to go to the streets and deal with some very unsavory people to get my medicine. As a voting citizen of this state, I DO NOT APPRECIATE HAVING TO GO TO THE DRUG CARTELS TO GET MY MEDICINE... Will you please vote yes so I can walk into a store front, a store front that is paying taxes mind you,,,and purchase my medicine just like I do everything else I buy in this fine state and go on about my business. Thank you for taking the time to read this.Apr-24-2013ForLiquid Asset requirements are still too high! License fees are WAY too high! This will only hinder smaller local groups wishing to start dispensaries. Good progress though!Apr-24-2013ForApr-24-2013ForWE DESPERATELY NEED YOUR APPROVAL, we voters remember how you have voted come election time please show us you care about our needs.Give us sick folks your vote.Apr-24-2013ForThis bill is long over due. It is time that our state government addresses this issue and completes the legislation that began 13 years ago. Legal, regulated and safe distribution is the answer.Apr-23-2013ForI have been a resident of Las Vegas, Nevada since 1996. I think the medical marijuana business could improve our current local economic situation. I really feel as though even recreational use of the drug is of the most benign victimless non-violent crimes. I see the effects of the illegality of marijuana resulting in gang violence and proliferation of those in this lifestyle benefitting financially from its sale while generating no tax revenue for the state. I think this should be stopped or lessened by allowing the sale of marijuana at state-licensed dispensiaries. I am furthermore concerned with the current intended requirement of dispensaries needing a bank account with $150k to start a medical marijuana business. I think this will exclude locals from starting businesses, inviting operators from other states and driving up prices of product such that encourages further illegitimate, unregulated, and illegal sales of the drug. Please consider these issues when reviewing the bill.Apr-22-2013AgainstApr-22-2013ForApr-22-2013Forright thing to do for the people who need itApr-22-2013ForAs my research has shown, overwhelming evidence from the scientific, medical, and law enforcement communities as well as the majority of the public based in most recent public polling shows that Cannabis is not harmful, is not properly “Scheduled” at the Federal level and is a direct cause of black markets and gun violence. The Earth is not flat even though we once strongly believed that. The same amount of overwhelming evidence is now showing that we as a government have not been handling this “marijuana” situation well as part of the overall WAR on Drugs. Finally as a State of these United States we the citizens of Nevada have the 10th Amendment right and duty to Nullify unreasonable Federal Law. And if this is what we the people of the State of Nevada want then my local government has the duty to implement such laws and protect its citizens.Apr-16-2013ForApr-16-2013ForThe state already has a medical marijuana bill that calls for a means for patients to legally and safely obtain their medicine. That happened more than a decade ago. Nevada voted for it and passed it. Lets comply with the laws and what the people want and provide it. Lets not let politics or religion get in the way of easing people's pain with natural non pharmaceutical methodsApr-16-2013ForApr-15-2013AgainstApr-15-2013ForI agree with Judge Francis L. Young's ruling of 1988: "... marijuana has been accepted as capable of relieving the distress of great numbers of very ill people." Let us provide alleviate pain and suffering where we can.Apr-14-2013AgainstI am totally against this bill. Who are we kidding: This is nothing more than raising and selling pot. There will be additional costs to the taxpayers to regulate these facilities. The cost, regulation and element attracted to "medical" marijuana is not worth any taxes received. Those who feel they need pot for medication can grow 3 plants now, can't they. Common sense, of which there is little these days, tells us this is nothing but hiding a for profit operation.Apr-13-2013Forits about timeApr-13-2013AgainstApr-12-2013ForApr-12-2013ForThe fact that this is even before the Legislature implies a belief that, per the Federal 10th Amendment, regulation of interstate commerce in marijuana is under the jurisdiction of the State, as opposed to the Federal, Government. Consistently, probably best that the bill include explicit language to this effect. Including provision for, whenever Federal prosecution is attempted for relevant activities, State provision of Defense Counsel. Intent being to bring the matter before the Federal Supreme Court (or, minimally, obtain a favorable ruling from relevant Circuit Court--enjoining prosecution within Nevada). Attempts to forbid commerce in alcohol did not stop with passage of the Volstead Act; the 18th Amendment was also enacted. Consistently, Federal prohibitions against commerce in other "controlled substances" should also require specific Amendments to the Federal Constitution. For simplicity, probably best that explicit language, to the effect that the 10th-Amendment considerations apply only to marijuan, be included.Apr-12-2013ForDear esteemed legislators, As a state registered medical cannabis patient in the great land of Nevada, I have a massive obligation to tell you the truth: With full and complete confidence and honesty, I can tell you that it was much cheaper and far easier to get cannabis while under-aged and attending high school in Nevada. This is a critical problem in our system, where the black market is feeding our children with distractions and unnecessary bad habits. As a high school student I had about 20 kid-contacts in my phone who were all dealing cannabis. I could go through the list and call them any hour of the day (before school, during school, after school, before work, at work, after work, etc). They would use fast food restaurants as meet up points, because that is where everyone worked. But if we ever wanted alcohol, that was a different story. We would need to find an adult of at least 21 years of age willing to go into a store, present their ID, and directly break the law for us. This service was never made available. I did not try alcohol until attending college. But I was already an experienced journeyman puffer by that time, so I didn't bother drinking much. Life went on.. After school was done, the cannabis dried up. As an adult, I barely have proper access for medical needs, while my spine quickly deteriorates and my bones dislocate. I only have one contact, one price, no competition, and no negotiation room. I can not measure the level of cannabinoid content in my herb, and I can not ensure it is purely organic without contaminants. It is insufficient for the state to ask me to grow my own...as it would impede on the rights of my house mate, land lord, and neighbors. I feel it would be inappropriate for anyone in the legislature to deny our constitutional rights promised over 13 years ago: safe medical access, because right now, HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS HAVE BETTER ACCESS than registered patients.

Black market is running the market so we need to get with the program..Apr-05-2013ForI believe they should legalize cannibus in nevada. Not only is it a pain reliever for people with medical issues it is a relaxer of sorts as well. Other states have jumped on the band wagon why not nevada?????Apr-05-2013ForWe pay the TURKS to manufacture OPIATES to get away with not having the pure and harmful DRUG un America unsynthesized...We have alcohol which is legal that kills people...Hemp/Cannabis is proven to attack cancer cells....relieves pain, helps people with pain and nausea and thousands of other reasons, But even though henry Ford used HEMP to build and fuel the 1st car in America, the MODEL T, the plant should be RE-LEGALIZED to help people while cutting down on war and the oil/petra chemical monoply. We NOW know that the African slaves picked HEMP as well as cotton and it was because since AMERICA as we know it started, HEMP has been useful in all aspects of life, Medicinal and industrial. Our holiday for this belief and culture of facts should be on APRIL, 20.Apr-05-2013ForApr-05-2013ForAs a Medical Professional I think it is high time that the legislature put into effect a safe way for medical patients to get their needed medication. I do not use it myself but I have seen multiple patients reap the benefits. Please take this opportunity to correct this. It would also be good to go back and remove the charges and convictions that have been happening due to lack of action on your part.Apr-05-2013ForI don't understand why we we're having to do this again. The legislative has been putting the bill off since 2000. Marijuana slows down the growth of cancer cells. That is all.Apr-05-2013ForApr-05-2013ForFirst of all there is no reason that this product shouldn't be legal. From all the research done there is no side effect from the use of cabanas. The aid it gives to those who need it and the only other way they can go is to use prescription drugs with side effects that in most cases are worse than the problem in the first place.Apr-05-2013ForPlease let medical marijuana legal in las vegas nevada for the people that need the medication please. many people have number of pains and illnesses that this medicaion helps in their everyday life, thank you.Apr-05-2013ForI have 3 compressed disk that I have pain from every morning.

Doctors have blindly told my mother and I that it was this or it was that, and gave him high doses of pain medication to dull the constant pain. After years of medication abuse we turned to cannabis. Since then my brother hasn't actually been healed but has had a hell of a better life. Better opportunities to engage in his surroundings rather than being trapped inside his pain. On top of that cannabis is a hell of a lot more healthy for your liver and lungs that the average night at the bar with the deadly liquors and secondhand smoke. Legalize pot, bring in more tourism, and jump start our economy. The people have spoken and WILL NOT, stop until justice is served!Apr-05-2013ForI think now is the time for common sense and reason with regard to medical marijuana. Legalization, regulation, and taxation makes sense for patients, law enforcement and our local economy. Thank you for your consideration.Apr-05-2013Forthe tax is too high, but otherwise a great billApr-05-2013ForI'm a Nevada medical marijuana patient and think it is about time Nevada stops dragging their feet with getting constitutional, safe access for patients. Most of the states around us have fully legalized or have patients with full access to the medicine they need and Nevada needs to catch up.Apr-05-2013ForThis would enable patients, who have already been given the green light to medicate, the opportunity to have easier access to their medicine. This is a logical step.Apr-05-2013ForThey need to raise the amount allowed so patients who grow at home aren't STILL violating the law when they harvest!!Apr-04-2013AgainstApr-02-2013ForApr-02-2013ForWe need Safe Access for Cannabis Patients. Please keep the fees equal to similar type businesses (liquor/pharmacy/herbal) And please keep profits and business opportunities in Nevada. With reasonable guidelines, the profit can go to citizens of NV and not Gangs or underground sources who can afford the huge fees suggested.Apr-01-2013ForIf you make marijuana legal for medical purposes, which I definetely hope you do, please do not require the $200 fee. Instead add a fee on to the purchase price that way those using the most will pay the most. For me marijuana is something I practically never use but I'm sure glad I have it when I need it. I will not pay $200 when I only go through about 3 joints a year. Sincerely, Byron W.

Pot-growing has become a really big business in California. People are growing it in all unimaginable places, often making neighborhoods unsafe due to the criminal element involved, and I doubt very much that the State is getting even an eighth of their dreamed of tax income. People who claim to need medical marijuana can find a way to get it without our leagalizing dispensaries, as they have proven over the years since Nevada said medical marijuana was okay. I see no reason to make it "easy" to obtain. If they were truly in need, there are pills available that have the same effect. Let's be honest about its use and the subsequent consequences of this bill. We must learn from others mistakes to avoid making them ourselves. Please vote NO on this bill.Mar-30-2013ForMar-29-2013AgainstThere is no such thing as "medical" marijuana. If there were, the FDA would be regulating it. Assuming that there is, why must the dispensary be non-profit? Why can't existing pharmacies dispense it? Or your local "food supplement" store?Mar-29-2013ForThree years ago the city of Las Vegas alone had more than 90 operating dispensaries because for twelve years the state failed to provide a voter-approved, viable structure for regulating them, and citizens were sick and tired of legislative apathy and cowardice. Trust in local law enforcement was then annihilated by state officials kowtowing to DEA and federal intervention at every possible "opportunity". I moved to Nevada in 2005, extremely impressed with the "Battle-Born State" moniker. It's been the battle worn state in the time I've been here to the point that judges dismiss cases citing the absurdity and impossibility of implementing a working system with existing law. I've used cannabis for pain management since a spinal injury in 1994, over half my life. The first trip to a Nevada dispensary was also the first time in my adult years I ever set foot outside my own front door and believed I was anyplace resembling a place of Hope or Promise, and it was definitely the first time I considered the "land of the free" to be more than an empty promise offered to children by posturing liars. Maybe a taste of that was found in Arizona's dispensaries, who knows what's going on in a state with cannabis laws twelve years younger than our own where the governor sued to keep Arizona's cannabis laws as voted by its citizens from being implemented. It is transparently opaque to me the "common bond" that drew Nevada legislators to choose Arizona as a place with dispensaries worth visiting; its officials are as excited to serve the will of their citizens as Nevada's have demonstrated themselves to be for twelve years now. Nevada legislature, do what your predecessors have failed to do and respect the voice of your constituency.Mar-29-2013ForThe bill is pretty good in its raw form but still is missing a few things to make right so we are not looking to ammend the ammendant in 2 more years. keeping green jobs in Navada, dispensary owners need to have at least a 2 year resident and the $150,000 in liquid assets is unpresidented in all other medical states, this fee makes this new industry only open to big companys to move in and open up and not the mom & pops that have been leading the fight for this change for the last decade, also the 2.5 ounces is nice increase but puts patients in the same bad spot when the harvest, a plant will yield more than that at harvest, closer to 10 to 12 ounces, Patients should be able to sell their overages of tested marijuana to dispensaries for compensation as their are many cost in the cultivation of medical marijuanaMar-28-2013ForMar-28-2013ForMar-28-2013ForCannibus is the most safest substance known to mankind and the human bodies Canabinoid systems, helping Millions of sick patients all over the world in humans from the age of 2 to 122, in short it is long overdue for being legal and avalible to every human on earth and for god sake you know it will stop crime and cartels, we learned that 80 years ago with alcohol thow cannibus is only 100,000 times saferMar-28-2013ForMar-27-2013ForThis bill would help patience's obtain there medicine safely. Also help bring jobs and money to our state.Mar-27-2013ForMedical Use of Marijuana should not be a criminal act or prosecuted as such no matter where you live. Thank you.Mar-27-2013ForMar-26-2013ForAny changes to the present medical marijuana laws would be great, as long as they were for the benefit of the patient. We The People of Nevada do not support this bill in its entirety. Not For Profit??? This business should be regulated the same as liquor stores, pharmacies, smoke shops, etc. $150,000 in liquid assets??? This eliminates many who are qualified and capable of running a dispensary. $500 for a dispensary agent registration card??? It should be the same as the medical marijuana patients registration card. Give meds to pharmacies without compensation??? The patient or caregiver should be reimbursed for their time and costs. The pharmacy is to regulate the amount of meds to be dispensed to a patient??? This should be the doctors decision. Two and one-half ounces in any one 14 day period. Again, this should be the doctors decision. Many patients prefer edibles over smoking their meds. It takes a lot more meds to make edibles. ALSO, any and all medical marijuana bills should include cooperatives and collectives and, caregivers should be allowed to have multiple patients. Thank you for taking the time to read my concerns. It is greatly appreciated.Mar-26-2013ForMar-26-2013AgainstThank you Senate Judiciary Committee for your service. I do not support this bill because it calls for all information to be sent to the Federal Government. This is a State issue & Nevadans should not be required to send information to the Feds. The extremely high requirement for assets of $150,000 discriminates against a majority of the public. Many non-profits have very limited funds & raise money through donations from the public & other groups. Arizona may not be the best state to emulate on this- considering its terrible immigration laws of the recent past. Nevada doesn't need to follow other states, it needs to lead. Please do not support this- we need more progress than this allows for.Mar-25-2013ForWhile you enjoy good health, you are actively pushing patients into the streets and into the arms of criminals. Sleep well.Mar-25-2013AgainstThe system for obtaining authorization for medical marijuana use is too easily "gamed". In California it's a joke. Anyone with an "ache" or inability to sleep can get a card. I ONLY would support this bill for legitimate and extreme circumstances and illnesses. Require at least two unrelated or associated physicians to okay it.Mar-25-2013ForI am an MMJ patient and support this bill. Thank you for your leadership on it.Mar-25-2013ForMar-24-2013ForMar-24-2013ForMar-23-2013ForI'm for this, but not solely for medical use. Approve this and AB402.

Drug deals on the streets are entirely too dangerous as sometimes shown on our local news channels.Mar-23-2013ForMar-23-2013ForMar-23-2013ForConsidering how many drugs we all take for our illnesses, Cannabis is much easier on the organs of the body, and minimal side effects. Cannabis provides people with comfort. I'm for folks having whatever it takes to make them comfortable if they can't be, for any reason. I have AIDS and related conditions. My anti viral and other medications make life a challenge much of the time and a little cannabis gives me that bit of comfort that makes it easier to get on with life.

What happened to freedom of trade? Nonprofit but not in compliance with chapter 82 of the NRS? Patients who grow their own can only GIVE their extra to dispensaries can't SELL it? Only allowed 2.5 ounces in 14 days? Takes a POUND to make Rick Simpson Oil for cancer. $9500 in fees to start yet a pharmacy only pays $4900? What!?! You just want rich people to be able to own one? Fix these issues & it will be good for all of us.Mar-22-2013ForMore than a decade ago, the citizens of Nevada voted to legalize the possession and use of marijuana for medical purposes by a 64% majority. At that time, the legislature was tasked with the creation of regulations to allow for the safe acquisition of this medicine. The legislature has not acted on this issue in all of that time. Even though the state says a patient can legally possess marijuana, there is still no legal way to purchase it. Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy should not be subjected to the stresses and abuses present in the black market sale of marijuana.Mar-22-2013ForMedical Cannabis is a big deal. Some people have moved out of state to get their meds. We voted to make it legal here in NV twice, let us have our meds, and not go to jail, I HAVE CANCER AND CANNABIS HELPS 100% OF THE TIME FOR 100% OF THE PEOPLE.Mar-22-2013ForMar-21-2013ForMar-20-2013ForMar-20-2013ForMar-20-2013ForMar-20-2013ForMar-20-2013ForMar-20-2013AgainstMy heart goes out to those who need medical marijuana, but I'm not sure this is the way to go about it. Every state that has "dispensaries" seems to see an increase in marijuana use by everyone. It is a gateway drug. There must be a better way?Mar-20-2013ForMar-20-2013ForAs a senior and licenced Nevada Medical Marijuana Patient we need dispensaries and reforms to help tax paying citizen patients like me that use mmj to improve the quality of my health and lives.Mar-20-2013AgainstCrude marijuana does not meet the standards of modern medicine. There is no standardized composition or dosage; no appropriate prescribing information; no quality control; no accountability for the product; no safety regulations; no way to measure its effectiveness (besides anecdotal stories); and no insurance coverage. Simply having access without having safety, efficacy, and adequate use information does not serve the interest of public health and exposes patients to unsafe and ineffective drug products. Marijuana is a Schedule I drug for which doctors have inadequate information to recommend its use and it cannot be legally prescribed or dispensed like an FDA approved drug. This bill sanctions a network of drug trafficking which will increase marijuana use and drug related crime in Nevada. Furthermore, the United States Supreme Court has already made it clear that it is unlawful to manufacture, distribute, or dispense marijuana for claimed "medical" use, even in those states that have enacted laws purporting to make such activities permissible. As such permitting these activities will only invite federal scrutiny without protecting the parties involved from criminal/civil liability. This bill is bad for Nevada.Mar-20-2013ForMar-19-2013ForMar-19-2013ForI am a medical marijuana patient and I think that having dispensaries would be a good thing. I have been a patient since December and I still don't have the medication I need because I have to grow it and that takes a lot of time.Mar-19-2013ForMar-19-2013ForI am a legal medical marijuana patient in Nevada.

    AgainstI was in support of subject bill but have concerns over the wording that prohibits someone from growing there own medicine if a collective is operating in there county of residency. My father is a medical marijauna patient who is on social security. Currently he grows his own medicine at very little cost to himself. If a collective was to open in his county he would no longer be able to afford his medicine as most people would not be able to. I would see more tourists with California cards support these establishments than Nevada Patients. Currently my dad has found certain strains that help his conditions. Most collectives grow the popular strains and not what works for certain individuals. Assuming the high costs and strict guidelines they will face they are going to grow what sales fast and makes them money not what an individual patient might need. I appreciate your time and support in this matter.May-28-2013ForPlease allow the citizens of Nevada to grow their own medicineMay-27-2013AgainstI Have been a medical marijuana patient in NV since 2006, I would be for this bill if the No Grow amendment was removed. We mmj patients have been able to cultivate our own medicine for over 10 years now. We mmj patients have spent time and money into setting up our grows and learning to cultivate quality cannabis to meet our medical needs. Patients are suppose to have access to cannibus already, its part of the law already. But the state of NV has failed to acknowledge this. I do support having establishments to dispense cannibus but patients should NOT have the right to grow their own taken away!May-25-2013AgainstMay-24-2013ForMay-23-2013AgainstMay-23-2013ForMay-23-2013ForMay-23-2013AgainstThe part of the bill that makes home growing illegal if dispensary opens in your area is unamerican and unconstitutional and will make it very hard for poor people to obtain their medication.May-22-2013AgainstWhen Senator Hutchison testified at the last Senate Finance Committee meeting on this bill, he stated that we should lose our right to grow because the Government needs to control medical marijuana "from seed to weed" or some such trite slogan. Well this is probably true with the large scale cultivators this bill creates; but we current grower patients have always been controlled from "seed to weed" by virtue of the fact that we're limited to Seven Plants. There have been no law enforcement problems with patients who have stuck within the guidelines. This is nothing more than a special interest money grab and not for the benefit us patients. Collect your dispensary taxes from tourists and new patients who elect not to grow their own. Don't put this boondoggle on our backs!May-22-2013Againstabsolutely unbelievable to me that the state & the fed govnt can't get this straightened out. Why pass the laws to legalize it then make it unavailable for patients that are prescribed it. The govnt needs to stay out of medical issues HIPPA laws mean anything to u you people What goes on between a Dr & they're patient is no one else's business period. The govnt is getting way to involved in personal business & it needs to stop The people of this state voted to legalize marijuana We live in a democracy last time I checked Stay out of our personal lives & concentrate all your efforts on more crucial issue like all the illegal immigrants that are in this country & are committing health insurance fraud. Or the lack of jobs for Americans in this country. This is what u guys decide to fight on to stop? This is a republic, the people have spoken Doesn't that matter anymore? Prioritize your issues this is just ridiculous to waste our tax money etc to fight the inevitable. U guys r gonna make a profit on it if its sold legally so relax already Whats next illegal cigarettes?May-22-2013Against9. Sec 22. Sub.6 Page 20 Lines 35 to 45, and page 21 Lines 1- 4 need to be deleted. It has been mandated that we must grow our own and now you want us to stop? No Way. 10. Sec 22.5 Page 21 (f) Remove/Delete Patient's should be allowed to sell their extra meds to help recover costs. Cooperatives/Collectives need to be addressed in the bill. Many patients would like to grow collectively to help reduce costs. 11. Sec 24.7. 372A.070 Sub 1(b)- Sub.7 Recommend to be deleted-removed. The Hippy vendetta again? Thank you for your time, J. George & David J. McDonough PS by Dave What is the thinking behind Sec24.7(b) to the end of page Line 44-3 on page 25. When you read line 4 No.7. It makes all the previous Sec 24.7 point less. If it (Sec 24.7 sub 7) is removed, that makes Cannabis subject to this outrageous tax. Is this a punishment tax to prevent Medicinal sales places from selling LSD or Morphine? Who would register as a dealer in controlled substances? This was thought up by a law enforcement mentality, wasn’t it? Delete the hole Sec 24.7.May-22-2013Againstremoving the right for patients to grow the own medication was not the purpose of this bill. The purpose was to provide better access for those who are unable to grow their own medication, which is not easy. Instead it was turned into a business to create marijuana tourism to Las Vegas and has nothing to do with the medical community any more. Completely wrong and totally against the the original purpose of medical marijuana. Remove that amendment and I would be for this bill.May-22-2013AgainstI spent $1,800 on a mini-split air conditioner to cool my sealed closet garden. What am I going to cool now, shoes? I'm all good and don't want or need your Gvmt Weed, which is grown by profiteers and sold by licensed drug dealers. Shame on anyone who votes for this sham.May-22-2013AgainstI'd like to see a place where we can purchase cannabis but please give us the right to grow since I'm on a fixed income and can't afford to buy it. I have spent over 500 dollars in the past 6-7 years for equipment and I have seeds for the next 2-3 years. Please consider removing the part the takes away home grow. It's the only way to keep the dispensaries honest. Thank you, Craig BuehlerMay-22-2013AgainstWhy would you make growing your own illegal? How insane is that. NO other states laws about medical cannabis is as messed up as nevadasMay-22-2013AgainstLoyal patients for years have no reason to register themselves in this case abiding by laws then get s smack to the face outta nowhere wouldnt be fair to the ones who have been loyal.May-22-2013AgainstJust Say No To Tickweed!May-22-2013AgainstI was for this bill now I am against it. I cannot afford overpriced expensive medication. Please do not take my right to grow medical marijuana away from me. I strongly urge you to not allow this bill with this amendment in it as you will make thousands of law abiding citizens criminals which we are not. Please we do not deserve this .May-21-2013AgainstI would like to express my concerns regarding Amendment 333 to SB374. The Amendment 333 would disallow patients from growing their own medicine and require patients to purchase medicine from "For- Profit" dispensaries. This will create a financial burden for many patients. It already costs a patient approximately $500.00 to obtain a medical marijuana card, many patients are not even able to afford this much less be forced to purchase medicine through a for-profit dispensaries. The bill does not expand the right of patients, to cultivate their own medicine. I feel that we as patients should be able to cultivate our own medicine and not be forced to purchase medicine from others.May-21-2013AgainstI am against this bill as it will prevent law obiding medical patients to affordably grow their own medication and will make them purchase it at exorbitant prices, eliminating most of which from the program all together. It is not a progress. This bill is essentially marginalizes those who are not well off and restricts their access to the medication all together.May-21-2013ForMay-19-2013AgainstPlease do not pass this bill. I am a medical marijuana card holder and it would be very unfair to not allow me to grow my own medicine. Here is why.... 1) I grow very clean, by organic means. I know I do not have lung problems and I trust my own medicine and do not like any other persons growing methods. I am very clean/sanitary. 2) I have beautiful plants, that I actually love like my own pets. I don't have any pets. My strains where very difficult to obtain and some were very costly. I found amazing plants. I have the best. Its not fair to take them away from me. 3) I have spent money on education. It took years of networking and reading to learn to grow. 4) I believe you guys need to learn more about the subject before you change it. An ounce is more like $140.00. $250.00 - $600.00 is absurd. No weed is good enough to be $600.00/oz. 5) This bill will take hydroponics shops out of business. 6) You are not going to be guaranteed to get all of the application fees if people cant grow our own. We are very picky people. I want my own. 7) Different plants have different affects, for example, some strains make you hungry, some do not. Some make you get to sleep, some do not. Some make you have no pain, some do not. I have the varieties I need, for my specific ailments. That information is not always easily available. I had to research this, and I was very lucky I found someone who wasn't too paranoid to talk to me. The strains in the dispensaries may not be able to be researched easily or wont work for my ailments. Or mine may not be available. 8) These plants are very needy. It would be difficult to get growing operations going in bulk. They need a great deal of attention. Who is going to grow for the dispensaries ? I just feel that not enough is known on the subject. Please consider my comments. It would really affect my life negatively if you chose to not let me grow anymore. Sincerely, Lori Radtke [email protected]-17-2013AgainstI joined the medical marijuana program in Nevada to get away from drug dealers! Amendment 333 will force patients to buy from you Nazi's, or go without medicine? I guess I shouldn't expect any less from my elected officials, I mean, drug dealers! just so you guys know, most of the patients are, low or fixed income. You people are sneaky, underhanded backstabbers, this system should be non-profit, by patients, for patients. I hope this doesn't pass, I'll have to move out of Nevada.May-16-2013ForMay-14-2013AgainstAfter seven years of legally growing my own medicine; I refuse to give up my right to continue legally growing my own. I will not pay inflated prices to a dispensary where their only growing prerequisite is to win a lottery for a dispensary license. It was very sneaky to add the 25 mile no-grow rule as a non-debated amendment. I doubt the 25 mile rule is even constitutional under equal protection. It's being challenged in Arizona.May-10-2013ForIs this going to pass?May-09-2013ForMedical marijuana patients in Nevada have no legal way to obtain their medication.May-09-2013ForMay-08-2013ForThe bill is well written and well thought out. Pass it please and let's create some jobs!May-07-2013AgainstDo not pass this bill as amended. The intent of this bill was to give card holders a way to legally obtain Medical grade Marijuana. This is sorely needed and long over due. Those that do not have the physical ability or expertise required to cultivate Medical grade Marijuana will now have a safe way to obtain it. Great work! But please do not take away the Card holders privilege to cultivate there own. Allow those that can cultivate there own to donate Medical grade Marijuana to the non profit dispensaries. Lets not lose sight that these are sick people in need of medicine. Do not burden them with this financial impact. Save the heavy regulation and heavy taxes for the recreational use of Marijuana that is only a few years away.May-06-2013AgainstThis amendment removes the right of patients to cultivate their own medicine and forces all patients to pay inflated prices at the for proffit dispensaries.May-06-2013ForMay-05-2013ForApr-30-2013ForApr-30-2013AgainstI'm 100 % disabled. I have been part of the medical marijuana program for years. This new admendment will prevent me from growing my own and I can't afford to go to a dispensery. I will have to go back on opiates which I don't want to do because I can't function as well.Apr-30-2013ForThis needs to happen. Nevada is way behind in their progressive thinking.Apr-29-2013AgainstWhen this bill was first brought up it was an OK bill but now!!! NOT OK at all!! The state has forced us for 13 years to grow our own, many of us have spent $3000 to $5000 to set up a growing area in our homes. NOW you are going to tell us we can't grow once a dispensary is in place? This is completely unfair!!! It takes many months to figure out how to grow the things & many weeks of reading & watching videos to learn how to make the products we need when our plants are ready. Some of us find it very relaxing to tend to our plants. This bill was supposed to BENEFIT the patients not be a cash cow for a few dispensaries & the state. If you remove our right to grow you will also put many hydroponics stores out of business! There will be a number of patients who will register because they would be able to purchase legally. There are some who will leave the state if they aren't allowed to grow their own. PLEASE do what's RIGHT for the patients KEEP our right to grow! If you don't someone will probably sue so lets do this Right, since it's taken 13 years to get to this point. Take care of your constituents!Apr-29-2013ForMost of the bill sounds good except one thing. The bottom of page 20. It is really important to still allow the patients to grow their own medicine. The dispensaries would have to much control if they are the only way to get the medicine. Not to mention a lot of people do not have the money to pay for it. It is cheaper for them to grow there own. If the patients cant grow there own then i would be against the bill.Apr-29-2013ForSell it and TAX it!Apr-29-2013ForI am a legitimate patient who needs medical cannabis to function a normal life and I do not have safe access to it. I cannot grow it because of where I live and the only other option is the street. I need safe access to medicine for my medical DISEASE. Please help us patients obtain proper tested medicine.Apr-26-2013ForThis is a very important Bill that needs to be approved. The Human Beings that it impacts are in dire need of what it will make possible and allow. It will harm no one while it will relieve the pain and suffereing that some people must endure in thier life. Please be compassionate and helpful in your decision.Apr-25-2013ForApr-25-2013ForIt raises taxes for education and other important community services. Avoiding a black market reduces criminal activity. Marijuana is important medicine for some people and is currently difficult to obtain.Apr-24-2013AgainstApr-24-2013ForI am a 56 year old female that loves to vote in this state. I am also a medical marijuana patient that would love to be able to walk into a store front and purchase my medicine rather then to have to go to the streets and give my money to the drug cartels. I would much rather walk into a store front and purchase my medicine along with knowing that my tax dollars regarding this purchase goes to my state of Nevada instead of some drug cartel that scares the hell out of me anytime I have to go near them. Due to my health I am not able to grow my own medicine as our current laws allow. Therefore, I am forced to go to the streets and deal with some very unsavory people to get my medicine. As a voting citizen of this state, I DO NOT APPRECIATE HAVING TO GO TO THE DRUG CARTELS TO GET MY MEDICINE... Will you please vote yes so I can walk into a store front, a store front that is paying taxes mind you,,,and purchase my medicine just like I do everything else I buy in this fine state and go on about my business. Thank you for taking the time to read this.Apr-24-2013ForLiquid Asset requirements are still too high! License fees are WAY too high! This will only hinder smaller local groups wishing to start dispensaries. Good progress though!Apr-24-2013ForApr-24-2013ForWE DESPERATELY NEED YOUR APPROVAL, we voters remember how you have voted come election time please show us you care about our needs.Give us sick folks your vote.Apr-24-2013ForThis bill is long over due. It is time that our state government addresses this issue and completes the legislation that began 13 years ago. Legal, regulated and safe distribution is the answer.Apr-23-2013ForI have been a resident of Las Vegas, Nevada since 1996. I think the medical marijuana business could improve our current local economic situation. I really feel as though even recreational use of the drug is of the most benign victimless non-violent crimes. I see the effects of the illegality of marijuana resulting in gang violence and proliferation of those in this lifestyle benefitting financially from its sale while generating no tax revenue for the state. I think this should be stopped or lessened by allowing the sale of marijuana at state-licensed dispensiaries. I am furthermore concerned with the current intended requirement of dispensaries needing a bank account with $150k to start a medical marijuana business. I think this will exclude locals from starting businesses, inviting operators from other states and driving up prices of product such that encourages further illegitimate, unregulated, and illegal sales of the drug. Please consider these issues when reviewing the bill.Apr-22-2013AgainstApr-22-2013ForApr-22-2013Forright thing to do for the people who need itApr-22-2013ForAs my research has shown, overwhelming evidence from the scientific, medical, and law enforcement communities as well as the majority of the public based in most recent public polling shows that Cannabis is not harmful, is not properly “Scheduled” at the Federal level and is a direct cause of black markets and gun violence. The Earth is not flat even though we once strongly believed that. The same amount of overwhelming evidence is now showing that we as a government have not been handling this “marijuana” situation well as part of the overall WAR on Drugs. Finally as a State of these United States we the citizens of Nevada have the 10th Amendment right and duty to Nullify unreasonable Federal Law. And if this is what we the people of the State of Nevada want then my local government has the duty to implement such laws and protect its citizens.Apr-16-2013ForApr-16-2013ForThe state already has a medical marijuana bill that calls for a means for patients to legally and safely obtain their medicine. That happened more than a decade ago. Nevada voted for it and passed it. Lets comply with the laws and what the people want and provide it. Lets not let politics or religion get in the way of easing people's pain with natural non pharmaceutical methodsApr-16-2013ForApr-15-2013AgainstApr-15-2013ForI agree with Judge Francis L. Young's ruling of 1988: "... marijuana has been accepted as capable of relieving the distress of great numbers of very ill people." Let us provide alleviate pain and suffering where we can.Apr-14-2013AgainstI am totally against this bill. Who are we kidding: This is nothing more than raising and selling pot. There will be additional costs to the taxpayers to regulate these facilities. The cost, regulation and element attracted to "medical" marijuana is not worth any taxes received. Those who feel they need pot for medication can grow 3 plants now, can't they. Common sense, of which there is little these days, tells us this is nothing but hiding a for profit operation.Apr-13-2013Forits about timeApr-13-2013AgainstApr-12-2013ForApr-12-2013ForThe fact that this is even before the Legislature implies a belief that, per the Federal 10th Amendment, regulation of interstate commerce in marijuana is under the jurisdiction of the State, as opposed to the Federal, Government. Consistently, probably best that the bill include explicit language to this effect. Including provision for, whenever Federal prosecution is attempted for relevant activities, State provision of Defense Counsel. Intent being to bring the matter before the Federal Supreme Court (or, minimally, obtain a favorable ruling from relevant Circuit Court--enjoining prosecution within Nevada). Attempts to forbid commerce in alcohol did not stop with passage of the Volstead Act; the 18th Amendment was also enacted. Consistently, Federal prohibitions against commerce in other "controlled substances" should also require specific Amendments to the Federal Constitution. For simplicity, probably best that explicit language, to the effect that the 10th-Amendment considerations apply only to marijuan, be included.Apr-12-2013ForDear esteemed legislators, As a state registered medical cannabis patient in the great land of Nevada, I have a massive obligation to tell you the truth: With full and complete confidence and honesty, I can tell you that it was much cheaper and far easier to get cannabis while under-aged and attending high school in Nevada. This is a critical problem in our system, where the black market is feeding our children with distractions and unnecessary bad habits. As a high school student I had about 20 kid-contacts in my phone who were all dealing cannabis. I could go through the list and call them any hour of the day (before school, during school, after school, before work, at work, after work, etc). They would use fast food restaurants as meet up points, because that is where everyone worked. But if we ever wanted alcohol, that was a different story. We would need to find an adult of at least 21 years of age willing to go into a store, present their ID, and directly break the law for us. This service was never made available. I did not try alcohol until attending college. But I was already an experienced journeyman puffer by that time, so I didn't bother drinking much. Life went on.. After school was done, the cannabis dried up. As an adult, I barely have proper access for medical needs, while my spine quickly deteriorates and my bones dislocate. I only have one contact, one price, no competition, and no negotiation room. I can not measure the level of cannabinoid content in my herb, and I can not ensure it is purely organic without contaminants. It is insufficient for the state to ask me to grow my own...as it would impede on the rights of my house mate, land lord, and neighbors. I feel it would be inappropriate for anyone in the legislature to deny our constitutional rights promised over 13 years ago: safe medical access, because right now, HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS HAVE BETTER ACCESS than registered patients. Please support SB374 for proper medical acceApr-12-2013ForApr-12-2013AgainstApr-11-2013ForApr-11-2013Forplease passApr-10-2013ForApr-09-2013AgainstApr-09-2013Formy name is Robert Wyman-cahall and I am a 30 year survivor of HIV Andy to your survivor of cancerI have taken a lot of medication that is very hard to take over the last 30 years and I do believe that, cannabis has helped in keeping my medicines in my body. having safe access for dispensariesfor the patience of Nevada's receive their medicine would be a great advancement for Nevada.Apr-08-2013ForThis is greatly needed!Apr-07-2013ForHelp Nevada be a leader in putting an end to the failed war on drugs.Apr-07-2013ForPoliticians should educate themselves about the benefits of a plant that the majority of the population already uses. A tax and control program on a non harmful plant that is helpful is a great thing for everyone in a state stricken with unemployment and loss if tax revenue. Educate yourselves on the cannabis plant and compare it to the leathal accepted narcotics doctors are handing out every day and see which is causing more harm to society and your children. Education is key , vote with your conscience and let's see if we can actually make a difference Regards KleisnerApr-07-2013ForApr-06-2013ForCommon sense.Apr-05-2013ForApr-05-2013ForAt thia presant point in human interactions, moat people know of the danger and risk. What people also know are the benifits that come wit it, As an advocate for medical and recreational use. I whole-heartly urge you to make the right choice and make a step into making the legalization of marijuana a real thing. Its time to remove the restrctions. Peace and love.Apr-05-2013Fori think we should legalize it , it could help alot of people that really need itApr-05-2013ForI have titanium rods in both my arm and leg, I noticed that using medical marijuana, makes it so that I don't have to use physically addictive opiates, as well as take away my anxiety on top of many other medical issues.Apr-05-2013Fori beleive there is nothing wrong with ESTABLISHING DISPENSERIES in nevada.........california has plenty of them and it makes it much easier to deal with....if beer can be legalized why cant marijuanna?Apr-05-2013ForWe are way behind as a city and as country, we should legalize the use long time ago. Black market is running the market so we need to get with the program..Apr-05-2013ForI believe they should legalize cannibus in nevada. Not only is it a pain reliever for people with medical issues it is a relaxer of sorts as well. Other states have jumped on the band wagon why not nevada?????Apr-05-2013ForWe pay the TURKS to manufacture OPIATES to get away with not having the pure and harmful DRUG un America unsynthesized...We have alcohol which is legal that kills people...Hemp/Cannabis is proven to attack cancer cells....relieves pain, helps people with pain and nausea and thousands of other reasons, But even though henry Ford used HEMP to build and fuel the 1st car in America, the MODEL T, the plant should be RE-LEGALIZED to help people while cutting down on war and the oil/petra chemical monoply. We NOW know that the African slaves picked HEMP as well as cotton and it was because since AMERICA as we know it started, HEMP has been useful in all aspects of life, Medicinal and industrial. Our holiday for this belief and culture of facts should be on APRIL, 20.Apr-05-2013ForApr-05-2013ForAs a Medical Professional I think it is high time that the legislature put into effect a safe way for medical patients to get their needed medication. I do not use it myself but I have seen multiple patients reap the benefits. Please take this opportunity to correct this. It would also be good to go back and remove the charges and convictions that have been happening due to lack of action on your part.Apr-05-2013ForI don't understand why we we're having to do this again. The legislative has been putting the bill off since 2000. Marijuana slows down the growth of cancer cells. That is all.Apr-05-2013ForApr-05-2013ForFirst of all there is no reason that this product shouldn't be legal. From all the research done there is no side effect from the use of cabanas. The aid it gives to those who need it and the only other way they can go is to use prescription drugs with side effects that in most cases are worse than the problem in the first place.Apr-05-2013ForPlease let medical marijuana legal in las vegas nevada for the people that need the medication please. many people have number of pains and illnesses that this medicaion helps in their everyday life, thank you.Apr-05-2013ForI have 3 compressed disk that I have pain from every morning.

Doctors have blindly told my mother and I that it was this or it was that, and gave him high doses of pain medication to dull the constant pain. After years of medication abuse we turned to cannabis. Since then my brother hasn't actually been healed but has had a hell of a better life. Better opportunities to engage in his surroundings rather than being trapped inside his pain. On top of that cannabis is a hell of a lot more healthy for your liver and lungs that the average night at the bar with the deadly liquors and secondhand smoke. Legalize pot, bring in more tourism, and jump start our economy. The people have spoken and WILL NOT, stop until justice is served!Apr-05-2013ForI think now is the time for common sense and reason with regard to medical marijuana. Legalization, regulation, and taxation makes sense for patients, law enforcement and our local economy. Thank you for your consideration.Apr-05-2013Forthe tax is too high, but otherwise a great billApr-05-2013ForI'm a Nevada medical marijuana patient and think it is about time Nevada stops dragging their feet with getting constitutional, safe access for patients. Most of the states around us have fully legalized or have patients with full access to the medicine they need and Nevada needs to catch up.Apr-05-2013ForThis would enable patients, who have already been given the green light to medicate, the opportunity to have easier access to their medicine. This is a logical step.Apr-05-2013ForThey need to raise the amount allowed so patients who grow at home aren't STILL violating the law when they harvest!!Apr-04-2013AgainstApr-02-2013ForApr-02-2013ForWe need Safe Access for Cannabis Patients. Please keep the fees equal to similar type businesses (liquor/pharmacy/herbal) And please keep profits and business opportunities in Nevada. With reasonable guidelines, the profit can go to citizens of NV and not Gangs or underground sources who can afford the huge fees suggested.Apr-01-2013ForIf you make marijuana legal for medical purposes, which I definetely hope you do, please do not require the $200 fee. Instead add a fee on to the purchase price that way those using the most will pay the most. For me marijuana is something I practically never use but I'm sure glad I have it when I need it. I will not pay $200 when I only go through about 3 joints a year. Sincerely, Byron W.

Pot-growing has become a really big business in California. People are growing it in all unimaginable places, often making neighborhoods unsafe due to the criminal element involved, and I doubt very much that the State is getting even an eighth of their dreamed of tax income. People who claim to need medical marijuana can find a way to get it without our leagalizing dispensaries, as they have proven over the years since Nevada said medical marijuana was okay. I see no reason to make it "easy" to obtain. If they were truly in need, there are pills available that have the same effect. Let's be honest about its use and the subsequent consequences of this bill. We must learn from others mistakes to avoid making them ourselves. Please vote NO on this bill.Mar-30-2013ForMar-29-2013AgainstThere is no such thing as "medical" marijuana. If there were, the FDA would be regulating it. Assuming that there is, why must the dispensary be non-profit? Why can't existing pharmacies dispense it? Or your local "food supplement" store?Mar-29-2013ForThree years ago the city of Las Vegas alone had more than 90 operating dispensaries because for twelve years the state failed to provide a voter-approved, viable structure for regulating them, and citizens were sick and tired of legislative apathy and cowardice. Trust in local law enforcement was then annihilated by state officials kowtowing to DEA and federal intervention at every possible "opportunity". I moved to Nevada in 2005, extremely impressed with the "Battle-Born State" moniker. It's been the battle worn state in the time I've been here to the point that judges dismiss cases citing the absurdity and impossibility of implementing a working system with existing law. I've used cannabis for pain management since a spinal injury in 1994, over half my life. The first trip to a Nevada dispensary was also the first time in my adult years I ever set foot outside my own front door and believed I was anyplace resembling a place of Hope or Promise, and it was definitely the first time I considered the "land of the free" to be more than an empty promise offered to children by posturing liars. Maybe a taste of that was found in Arizona's dispensaries, who knows what's going on in a state with cannabis laws twelve years younger than our own where the governor sued to keep Arizona's cannabis laws as voted by its citizens from being implemented. It is transparently opaque to me the "common bond" that drew Nevada legislators to choose Arizona as a place with dispensaries worth visiting; its officials are as excited to serve the will of their citizens as Nevada's have demonstrated themselves to be for twelve years now. Nevada legislature, do what your predecessors have failed to do and respect the voice of your constituency.Mar-29-2013ForThe bill is pretty good in its raw form but still is missing a few things to make right so we are not looking to ammend the ammendant in 2 more years. keeping green jobs in Navada, dispensary owners need to have at least a 2 year resident and the $150,000 in liquid assets is unpresidented in all other medical states, this fee makes this new industry only open to big companys to move in and open up and not the mom & pops that have been leading the fight for this change for the last decade, also the 2.5 ounces is nice increase but puts patients in the same bad spot when the harvest, a plant will yield more than that at harvest, closer to 10 to 12 ounces, Patients should be able to sell their overages of tested marijuana to dispensaries for compensation as their are many cost in the cultivation of medical marijuanaMar-28-2013ForMar-28-2013ForMar-28-2013ForCannibus is the most safest substance known to mankind and the human bodies Canabinoid systems, helping Millions of sick patients all over the world in humans from the age of 2 to 122, in short it is long overdue for being legal and avalible to every human on earth and for god sake you know it will stop crime and cartels, we learned that 80 years ago with alcohol thow cannibus is only 100,000 times saferMar-28-2013ForMar-27-2013ForThis bill would help patience's obtain there medicine safely. Also help bring jobs and money to our state.Mar-27-2013ForMedical Use of Marijuana should not be a criminal act or prosecuted as such no matter where you live. Thank you.Mar-27-2013ForMar-26-2013ForAny changes to the present medical marijuana laws would be great, as long as they were for the benefit of the patient. We The People of Nevada do not support this bill in its entirety. Not For Profit??? This business should be regulated the same as liquor stores, pharmacies, smoke shops, etc. $150,000 in liquid assets??? This eliminates many who are qualified and capable of running a dispensary. $500 for a dispensary agent registration card??? It should be the same as the medical marijuana patients registration card. Give meds to pharmacies without compensation??? The patient or caregiver should be reimbursed for their time and costs. The pharmacy is to regulate the amount of meds to be dispensed to a patient??? This should be the doctors decision. Two and one-half ounces in any one 14 day period. Again, this should be the doctors decision. Many patients prefer edibles over smoking their meds. It takes a lot more meds to make edibles. ALSO, any and all medical marijuana bills should include cooperatives and collectives and, caregivers should be allowed to have multiple patients. Thank you for taking the time to read my concerns. It is greatly appreciated.Mar-26-2013ForMar-26-2013AgainstThank you Senate Judiciary Committee for your service. I do not support this bill because it calls for all information to be sent to the Federal Government. This is a State issue & Nevadans should not be required to send information to the Feds. The extremely high requirement for assets of $150,000 discriminates against a majority of the public. Many non-profits have very limited funds & raise money through donations from the public & other groups. Arizona may not be the best state to emulate on this- considering its terrible immigration laws of the recent past. Nevada doesn't need to follow other states, it needs to lead. Please do not support this- we need more progress than this allows for.Mar-25-2013ForWhile you enjoy good health, you are actively pushing patients into the streets and into the arms of criminals. Sleep well.Mar-25-2013AgainstThe system for obtaining authorization for medical marijuana use is too easily "gamed". In California it's a joke. Anyone with an "ache" or inability to sleep can get a card. I ONLY would support this bill for legitimate and extreme circumstances and illnesses. Require at least two unrelated or associated physicians to okay it.Mar-25-2013ForI am an MMJ patient and support this bill. Thank you for your leadership on it.Mar-25-2013ForMar-24-2013ForMar-24-2013ForMar-23-2013ForI'm for this, but not solely for medical use. Approve this and AB402.

Drug deals on the streets are entirely too dangerous as sometimes shown on our local news channels.Mar-23-2013ForMar-23-2013ForMar-23-2013ForConsidering how many drugs we all take for our illnesses, Cannabis is much easier on the organs of the body, and minimal side effects. Cannabis provides people with comfort. I'm for folks having whatever it takes to make them comfortable if they can't be, for any reason. I have AIDS and related conditions. My anti viral and other medications make life a challenge much of the time and a little cannabis gives me that bit of comfort that makes it easier to get on with life. Please provide for the purchase of medical cannabis.Mar-23-2013ForPlease just do the right thing and make cannabis legal again.Mar-23-2013ForMar-23-2013ForMar-23-2013Fori stand and support the legalization of marijuana, not just for medical use but for personal use , it has to many benefits and is long overdue it needs to be legalized .Mar-23-2013ForTax it, legalize it better our community and schools !Mar-23-2013ForMar-22-2013ForAfter reading the bill I am split, $150,000 in liquid assets JUST to open? 1 for every 10 pharmacies in a lottery system only open 10 days a year to submit? What happened to freedom of trade? Nonprofit but not in compliance with chapter 82 of the NRS? Patients who grow their own can only GIVE their extra to dispensaries can't SELL it? Only allowed 2.5 ounces in 14 days? Takes a POUND to make Rick Simpson Oil for cancer. $9500 in fees to start yet a pharmacy only pays $4900? What!?! You just want rich people to be able to own one? Fix these issues & it will be good for all of us.Mar-22-2013ForMore than a decade ago, the citizens of Nevada voted to legalize the possession and use of marijuana for medical purposes by a 64% majority. At that time, the legislature was tasked with the creation of regulations to allow for the safe acquisition of this medicine. The legislature has not acted on this issue in all of that time. Even though the state says a patient can legally possess marijuana, there is still no legal way to purchase it. Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy should not be subjected to the stresses and abuses present in the black market sale of marijuana.Mar-22-2013ForMedical Cannabis is a big deal. Some people have moved out of state to get their meds. We voted to make it legal here in NV twice, let us have our meds, and not go to jail, I HAVE CANCER AND CANNABIS HELPS 100% OF THE TIME FOR 100% OF THE PEOPLE.Mar-22-2013ForMar-21-2013ForMar-20-2013ForMar-20-2013ForMar-20-2013ForMar-20-2013ForMar-20-2013ForMar-20-2013AgainstMy heart goes out to those who need medical marijuana, but I'm not sure this is the way to go about it. Every state that has "dispensaries" seems to see an increase in marijuana use by everyone. It is a gateway drug. There must be a better way?Mar-20-2013ForMar-20-2013ForAs a senior and licenced Nevada Medical Marijuana Patient we need dispensaries and reforms to help tax paying citizen patients like me that use mmj to improve the quality of my health and lives.Mar-20-2013AgainstCrude marijuana does not meet the standards of modern medicine. There is no standardized composition or dosage; no appropriate prescribing information; no quality control; no accountability for the product; no safety regulations; no way to measure its effectiveness (besides anecdotal stories); and no insurance coverage. Simply having access without having safety, efficacy, and adequate use information does not serve the interest of public health and exposes patients to unsafe and ineffective drug products. Marijuana is a Schedule I drug for which doctors have inadequate information to recommend its use and it cannot be legally prescribed or dispensed like an FDA approved drug. This bill sanctions a network of drug trafficking which will increase marijuana use and drug related crime in Nevada. Furthermore, the United States Supreme Court has already made it clear that it is unlawful to manufacture, distribute, or dispense marijuana for claimed "medical" use, even in those states that have enacted laws purporting to make such activities permissible. As such permitting these activities will only invite federal scrutiny without protecting the parties involved from criminal/civil liability. This bill is bad for Nevada.Mar-20-2013ForMar-19-2013ForMar-19-2013ForI am a medical marijuana patient and I think that having dispensaries would be a good thing. I have been a patient since December and I still don't have the medication I need because I have to grow it and that takes a lot of time.Mar-19-2013ForMar-19-2013ForI am a legal medical marijuana patient in Nevada.

    Ton of great points in there renodude, you might have just done half of some lawyers job if anyone gets popped for growing after shops open. Even with how hard that all was to read, it was still easier than reading Bill SB374. I'd really like to knowwhat our government's response has been thus far. Anyone know?

    Hmm,.. interesting information. Some of them sounds about par for the Vegas course too. I don't get why NV pot shops would think they couldn't make it if locals can grow, locals can grow in Califreakinfornia and their shops are doing pretty ok. This is starting to sound like an unstoppable money grab. Who, other than a few thousand legal Vegas growers, is saying anything in favor of removing that part? Anyone 'up on the hill' have any sense on this specific issue for us?

    EDIT: This is the most transient city I've ever been to, and I've been to most in this country. Not many coming to visit here, also happen to know a local hookup. They are here expecting to stand in line at clubs and pay $16 a drink, they will happily give $10 more for an 8th bag. Lets be honest, WA and CO missed the boat on that one, first to go legal could have put a $20 tax on an 8th and 4/20 would've only been more of a boom for the state's coffers.
