No Medical Marijuana For AZ

Arizona Proposition 203, the ballot that would have made medical marijuana legal within the state, has failed. The good news, if there is any, is that the margin was slim at a percentage ration of 50.25:49.25 it couldn’t have got much closer. At the time of writing there are still 3 precincts left to report, however it is unlikely that the awaited results will make much difference. In terms of vote numbers, the failure was to the tune of just in excess 6,000 votes.

It wasn’t for want of trying though. On hearing the
federal court ruling lifting the ban on people wearing tea party shirts to the polls, two Arizona screen printing entrepreneurs distributed ‘weed party’ tee-shirts near polling places, at busy intersections, shopping centers and Valley universities. The image on the tee-shirt of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the so-called fascist face of the drug war, has not endeared the pro-marijuana lobby to more conservative state citizens.

  1. Actually it did pass. As of 11/14/2010 Arizona has a new medical marijuana law. 120 days from the end of November they will, by state law, have to have all rules and regulations available for the new law.

  2. You are incorrect thus far. As of last night, Nov 12 they were still counting and the yes vote was only ahead by 1500 with 6000 votes left to count. The deadline was today, but no word whether it made it through or not.

    Im not a big fan because the qualifications to get it is too loose, but for the sake of those terminally ill that really need it, Im for it, and voted for it. I hope it makes it through. The rest is up to the lawmakers to make it right, and the docs.

  3. I mean ruin everything. And the feds and the states can tax the growers too. You can’t grow a tobacco plant but you can sure as heck buy cigarettes and chewing tobacco!!! How many people have died From strictly marijuana use. ToM my knowledge none.

    Plenty of medical proffessionals, lawyers and judges already smoke or eat some of the best pot money can buy! And they don’t have prescriptions. Why not legalize at least the medical marijuana? Then figure out how to regulate it on a personal level.

    Phillip Morris already has a patent for the packaging. I wouldn’t trust them to grow my pot!!! Othello probably put some weird chemicals in it to addict people and make it bad for us. Someone should call the BBB on the tobacco companies!!!

  4. BOOOOOOO!!!! ITS MEDICINE!!!!WHAT WILL IT TAKE FOR PEOPLE TO ACKNOWLEDGE THIS? ITS NOT AS BAD AS HYDROCODONE BUT THATS LEGAL. IT WOULD BENEFIT PEOPLE WITH pain AN ILLNESSES AND HELP THE ECONOMY BY CREATING JOBS, WHICH THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT COULD TAX THE EMPLOYERS AND EMPLOYEES OF THE DISPENSARIES. NOT EVERYONE CAN GROW OR MAKE GOOD MEDICINAL MARIJUANA.

    SO FOR ALL OF THE LABOR, ELECTRICITY USED, WATER USED, AND SPACE NEEDED TO GROW THIS, THE GROWERS SHOULD BE COMPENSATED AS WELL!!! WHERES THE CONFUSION HERE? THE EDUCATION SYSTEM AND GOVERNMENT CONTINUE TO MISINFORM PEOPE OF THE BENEFITS OF MEDICINAL MARIJUANA AND IT KEEPS PEOPLE THINKING THAT ITS SOME SORT OF HARDCORE NARCOTIC THAT IS GOING TO RUIN EVERYTHONG!!! GROW UP!!!

  • Vaporizer Corner - Get Started

    I love my vapes. I have many, and have tried most. Each has a learning curve to it, especially the portable ones. You have to take a day to learn each.. and most new Vaporists think that they are not that crazy about their choice on the first couple of tries.
