This is a perfect example of what is happening and a good reason to reconsider legalization.
BTW he is talking about FLA.

Poor people are dying and need relief and all these greedy pieces of shit wanna take their last dollar. If we got what we voted for poor terminal people would get theirs free from me. Instead in this state run by republican free market hypocrites we have no free market just corporate handouts. They will throw you and prison and take your property if you are poor and produce your own medicine. These politicians need to be thrown in the ocean 30 miles out with cinder blocks chained to their ankles.

Re-Legalization =

* The right to grow your own.

* The right to breed Cannabis, which means the right to possess quantities of seeded buds.

* The right to engage in Commerce, i.e. selling the fruits of your labors.

All described in one of our nation's founding documents, "The Right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness."


In short, a return to the time period 1776 to approx. 1930 (in the US.), when Cannabis was legally prescribed by American doctors (along with Opiates and derivatives of Cocaine.)

(If Legalization of all drugs is so terrible, how did the US survive its first 154 years ?)

I'm not advocating that Cannabis users push for legalization of Opiates & Cocaine, that's too much for the US gov. to swallow, too much change at once. But we should be honest about our own nation's history.

If you are in a state that is considering legalization read up and vote for a constitutional amendment to the states constitution or lose your personal growing rights.

Coprorate cannabis sees you as the competition.
Stay informed!

Legalization is here and Big Ag is ready to move in and own it all!
We need to be more aware of what is going on everyday.
We need to share information with each other more than ever.

Not my quote but a good one!

Moving Forward as a Community

To the community at large:
We need to take a moment right now.
We need to assess, to reflect, to adapt and overcome.
There are clearly some mammoth changes coming our way and everything our predecessors have fought and died for is being coveted and actively taken from us by greedy businesspeople who did nothing to help our plight when it really mattered.

As a community, we need a common legal language and framework that breeders can use to protect their work.

We need a scientific community that’s open source, fully transparent and works for everybody equally.
We need to support this with personal research, communication and our dollars.

Hell, it's so blatant that 'insider trading' is not an issue (for a Congressman).
Now the door is opened and big AG is moving in.
Gonna be hard to stop big AG now!

When people say "legalization" that feels hollow......it is a narrow exemption of the law, not a true legalized bill.....


And...edit. A group of people who were part of legalizing for Oregon have heavy connections to the Phylos bullshit, like Pruf Cultivar.
So it would be far to say that Big Ag has an intermediary on legalization bills thru these type of groups. Watch the f out if you take this kind of things seriously.
Does anyone one else see big AG helping to form the new cannabis laws?

I don't see the problem being legalization. The problem is big business using their friends in high places to corner the market. I wouldn't be growing if it was still illegal here so I'm 100% for legalization.

But what's the alternative? Keeping it illegal, watching who you say what to at the garden store? Simple decriminalization? I don't see a better alternative than this.

It 100% sucks that big money will make tons off of cannabis, while the little guys barely scrape by. But I don't see that as a problem with legalization itself. I see that as a capitalist/lobbyist problem. But hey, microbreweries have never been more popular, so I don't see our craft going out of style any time soon.

And how many of the micro brewers could afford a $250,000 licensing fee to start up? Oh, you want to brew more than 100 gallons? That'll be a $500,000 check instead.

With these laws, there is no "little guy scraping by". It's just illegal growers doing what we've been doing for years, risking life, limb, and freedom for a plant we love.

I'll never vote for legalization unless it becomes a part of our constitution like CO did.

Point taken. Again, I don't think it's legalization itself, but those writing the laws and those essentially bribing the lawmakers. A law like that? Absolutely, vote no. My point, though, is that legalization isn't an inherently bad thing that must be voted down.

But with legislation like that, I don't know if I'd vote Yes. Unless, of course, I got tired of fighting.
