Re: “Hammer Time?

I don't believe the Democrats have any interest in legalization. This shit comes up just prior to EVERY election to get the vote then vanishes as soon as it's over. Every time! Stop falling for their obvious pandering ffs!

Re: “Hammer Time?

This is the opposite of true. Trump is pro legalization. Why make this up?

Re: “Smoke Out

Even for those who can afford an expensive in-patient rehab program, that does not provide a cure either. After "graduation," something is needed to keep on one track!
Addiction is a behavioral disorder, which means that practicing abstinence is an ongoing, moment-to-moment opportunity for the old behavior to re-emerge... or not.
Sitting with other addicts who remind us we are not alone, remind us to ask for help (from others or a higher power) & remind us why abstinence is best for us-- is essential to staying clean, especially if you don't want to replace it with other problem behaviors.

Re: “No Way on 'A'

As someone who has been in the industry for many years- and currently operates several hundred square feet below the "cottage level" cutoff (ie- under 2500 sq ft hoophouse), I couldn't disagree with you more.

The SoCo taxes as proposed to start are better then any of the other legal states. Worse then Humboldt- better then what has been proposed or passed anywhere south or east of here. Yes the "up to" 10% is scary. But this is a process in a process- the county, for those that have been involved in the process- clearly wants to support small operators and not kill the goose that laid the golden egg.

Welcome to the real world or regulation, taxes, osha, labor boards, etc, etc.

Guess what? We are finally being handed a legal and regulated industry. Scary, yes. Expensive, yes. But we also escape living in a world where what we do is unauthorized...illegal...but we have a "legal defense" of sorts when busted.

Yep- many of us are going to have scale up considerably. But we will have the freedom to do so without fear of Henry 1's flights twice a year. And yep- a lot of players- both small and large...are pretty much done. If you can't produce a product that is good enough for the CA market your days ave very numbered. So be it- these are the people who have created much of the environmental, worker, and criminal abuses in our region.

Maybe you should have explained to people that without a tax in place the county doesn't issue permits. Without county permits you can't get a state permit. Meaning the cannabis industry in SoCo could become completely illegal for 1-2years++. Under a federal administration itching to screw the cannabis industry, and CA in particular.

Re: “Smoke Out

This is a great article. As someone with an addictive personality, my life has been vastly improved by attending meetings of Marijuana Anonymous. For many years I ended up smoking more than I wanted to and I knew that I had a problem. I just didn't know how to control my usage.

The great thing about Marijuana Anonymous meetings is that we all support each other in staying sober. There is no one in charge, nobody makes you do anything you don't want to do, and it is fine for people to attend meetings and to not say anything if they don't want to. I was very relieved to discover that Marijuana Anonymous as well as other twelve step groups have no connection to organized religion.

Attending Marijuana Anonymous meetings has improved my life immensely. When I was smoking everyday I felt like I wasn't accomplishing the things that I wanted to do with my life. Now that I am sober I have been able to do many of those things.

I know that there are many people who can use successfully use cannabis periodically. I often wish that I was someone who could smoke once in a while without feeling the desire to smoke everyday.

Through the fellowship of Marijuana Anonymous and hanging out every week with other recovering Marijuana addicts, I have come to see that smoking once in while is not an option for me. It has become very clear to me that I can either be sober or smoke everyday. With the support of my pals in Marijuana Anonymous I have been able to live a sober life for many years and as a result I am much happier.

Re: “Smoke Out

All of us are potentially addicts to something: chocolate, fast cars, smartphones.
Roughly 9% of all people who try cannabis will become addicted to it.

If you think you're a recreational user, but find yourself planning your day around your cannabis use, you might want to have a really honest conversation with the (non-using) people around you about your use.

Better yet, listen to former users at a typical low-key, non-judgmental MA meeting. Self-honesty is initially tough, but ultimately rewarding.

Re: “The End

You can thank your good buddy Hezekiah Allen for much of this mess. He took his CGA shitshow on the road across the state, convincing the growers and pretty much the entire industry to follow his lead blindly over the edge of the bankruptcy cliff. How does it feel to ruin so many lives CGA? Mr. Olesky, are you really so naive that you think these big corporations are going to buy organic soil from you? They will produce their own! Anyway, good luck turning this inside job disaster around. Welcome to the weed Titanic.

I started taking and antiviral and took it everyday twice a day to make sure I wasn't able to get an outbreak. I debated whether I wanted to have my daughter natural or c- section. I was terrified. Stress wasn't helping my situation. I ended up having her natural and she is a beautiful healthy 2 month old baby girl.

Re: “Too Big to Fail

Marijuana consumers deserve and demand equal rights and protections under our laws that are currently afforded to the drinkers of far more dangerous and deadly, yet perfectly legal, widely accepted, endlessly advertised and even glorified as an All American pastime, booze.

Plain and simple!

Legalize Marijuana Nationwide!

The "War on Marijuana" has been a complete and utter failure. It is the largest component of the broader yet equally unsuccessful "War on Drugs" that has cost our country over a trillion dollars.

Instead of The United States wasting Billions upon Billions more of our tax dollars fighting a never ending "War on Marijuana", lets generate Billions of dollars, and improve the deficit instead. It's a no brainer.

The Prohibition of Marijuana has also ruined the lives of many of our loved ones. In numbers greater than any other nation, our loved ones are being sent to jail and are being given permanent criminal records which ruin their chances of employment for the rest of their lives, and for what reason?

Marijuana is much safer to consume than alcohol. Yet do we lock people up for choosing to drink?

The government should never attempt to legislate morality by creating victim-less marijuana "crimes" because it simply does not work and costs the taxpayers a fortune.

Marijuana Legalization Nationwide is an inevitable reality that's approaching much sooner than prohibitionists think and there is nothing they can do to stop it!

Legalize Nationwide! Support Each and Every Marijuana Legalization Initiative!

Re: “Greening the Game

Why does everyone hang their hopes on medical science. They do not own the work cure! You are amazing and strong and your belief system is held hostage by science. People can say I'm fighting cancer and will beat it and sometimes do with all kinds of things including the powerful mind and everyone applauds. But say herpes can be cured and your laughed at. I was cured by Sebi and I'm not special. I was lucky enough to have been introduced to Dr Lucky Herbal Clinic guided medications. when I was diagnosed with Hsv1&2 I applied the power of my mind and those medications and defeated this weak virus. Herpes is a weak virus and mostly causes emotional pain. Take back your life and power and defeat the weak chicken virus. Almost 10 years no outbreaks and herpes has caused zero problems in my life. Yes I'm cured.  Contact Sebi Now! Email: drsebiscellfoodoffice@ ( gmail. ) com,https://drsebiscellfoodoffice.wordpress.com/ or contact via whatsapp +22378760009
