Arizona Medical Marijuana Initiative
    #444938 - 07/11/10 03:49 PM (6 years, 4 months ago)

I just read the whole thing...it made my brain hurt.

The reason I wanted to fully go through it though is that my wife came to me with magical words last week: "If they pass the MMJ law here, we should open a dispensary."

I know how much work this would take, but it would be incredible to be of help to people who are extremely ill, and to provide medicine that I grow!
My wife is a medical user (grand mal seizures) and this would be incredible for her, b/c cannabis has been the only thing (including VERY strong pharmaceuticals) that can prevent and lessen the occurrence of her seizures.

What do you think would be the biggest challenges to overcome in opening a dispensary?
What are some of the issues you've heard of in CA, and CO?

A lot of us share that dream.  But what's the Initiative say?  Is this a bill or something that is in a position to hold some legal weight?  It all depends on how the law is written.  Be a part of that if you can.  I guess this would be a voter initiative.  In that case, what is the transition process that occurs from initiative to law on the books?  Save up your money.

The initiative has been approved already to appear on the public ballot.  If the ballot passes in a popular vote, it will be law in November.

What are the polls looking like? They should (sadly) be hyping this as pro-state/anti-govt/anti-regulation more than anything else if they want to get it passed. I can't see all the geriatrics down there getting behind it and changing a stance they've been holding for 50 years any other way.

"Obama wants to regulate and/or take away our marijuana"

"He wants to WHAT?!?!?!" (Doesn't smoke marijuana, doesn't recall anything after hearing Obama)

"Vote for I-whatever this November, you'll put mexican drug mules out of work and rescue arizonas marijuana back from the commies!"

"Yee-haw!!!!" (goes and votes because old people always vote)

Thats how I would do it anyway. :rolleyes:

Well the MMJ initiative has passed twice before, but loopholes in the language make them impotent in terms of legality.  There is even an existing dispensary somewhere in the state (or so I'm told).
So I hold out some hope that this will pass.  Straw polls are showing support in the 60-65% range, but we need everyone to show up to vote if we want to realize the poll numbers.

Here in MI dispensaries aren't legal buy the state yet, but at least 1 new pops up every week. But then again some cities in the state are more accepting to medical marijuana and dispensaries. I know most of the ones that have opened here took their, business plan directly to the city and county sheriffs before moving forward. I to want to someday open a dispensary, but not until it's worked out on the state level. Until then I just may take on some patients and become a caregiver.

cool idea on the caregiver idea.

You guys make some very good points. I like the part about the old people who have that image of some one jumping out the window high on pot(thank you propaganda films from that time frame) You got to get all the younger more opened minded people to go vote, or it will be doomed like so many other states attempts. Wish you the best of luck and hope some day this will not even have to be debated.

I got an invite on facebook i will share.  Later today at 4pm!  I used to live a literal stones throw from that park. 

Hi all,

Don't forget-- this Sunday at 4PM we are meeting at Steele Indian School Park for a pro-Prop 203 Sign-Making Event. This is to get ready for our demonstrations to support Prop 203 (planned for 10/29 & 11/1). Bring paints, brushes, and blank signs if you can, but Phoenix NORML is providing some materials :smile: Come make yourself a cool sign for the events, get ideas for good messages, and hang out with very cool, like-minded folks :smile:

--DIRECTIONS--
Steele Indian School Park is just North of Indian School ON 3rd St. Once you turn into the park from Indian School, please take your FIRST LEFT into the SMALL PARKING LOT, and park your car there. *If you go through the park's main gates in your car, you have gone too far. (Lots of people get lost this way)* Go into the first park entrance you see, and we will be around the shade structure, located above the water pool.

See you there! (and please feel free to invite friends)

They planned to only allow very very select few shops open in the whole state if it was going to pass.

It sure is close and I'd like to hold out hope, but down by several thousand votes with the bulk already counted is a pretty big leap to mount!

It would be a welcome miracle if it does go through. :sun:

I just got on here to post that!!! :woot:

The provisional ballots have been overwhelmingly in favor of the measure, while early ballots have been 50/50, so it doesn't look like its gonna swing back.  We're gonna be an MMJ state! (fingers crossed)
