Re: “It's High Time

Mike got back to me with the note:
Thank you so much for your note, Ken. In no way does this ban residential grows - It respects the laws that were brought forward by voters with Prop 215 (County/City ordinances spell out how many plants/dried product residents can have via local ordinances). Always willing to discuss - 916.651.4002. Thanks!

Also called me was his Chief of Staff Jason Liles who is on top of this issue. We are playing phone tag, but in the meantime with Mike's welcoming statement to me, I read thoroughly the bill at the legislative site and see that at paragraph 18108 that patients and caregivers under 215 are exempt from licensing of cultivation. The ban on residential grows is only for licensed cultivations.

I have to say this is truly representative democracy at work with Mike reaching out. Thanks Mike for you representing us in the Senate!

Re: “It's High Time

Mike
If this bill outlaws growing by residents in cities and suburbs, it is going against the Compassionate Use Act of 1996 that gave CA residents access to cannabis for medical use.

18131. A licensed cultivation site shall not be located in an area zoned residential.

If residential grows are outlawed it will mean expensive medication, and many are on fixed social security income and elderly. It will cause a centralization of this herbal medicine and it will be treated as a commodity rather than natural healing available to all in need. This is the safest plant for treating anxiety, pain, seizures, and auto-immune diseases, and yet we treat this like like a poison. Oleander bush leaves are toxic and grow everywhere in residential areas. Because Nixon placed marijuana in Schedule 1, we think God said this plant is evil. No a politician misused his high office. I hope you, Mike McGuire do not abuse your office by believing like Nixon or in Nixon's abusive actions to our Nation in regard to this plant that has afforded healing and fiber since the beginning of our human species.
