[quote=OldCoolSativa;8187486]I read the first few pages of this thread and decided to skip to the end to tell a couple weed stories from my too-brief time in Arizona, where I went to grad school in Tucson from 1984-1987.

I wasn't there long enough to plug into the weed scene. One of my friends was from San Diego and her husband grew his own weed in a planter in their back yard and it was incredible. No idea what it was but the dude inspired me.

Now here's the more interesting weed story; maybe someone else had a different slant on the same story in the ~1,000 posts I didn't have time to read. I did a lot of field work in the San Pedro valley for my thesis, mostly in Benson and St. David, and occasionally up towards Pomerene. I was collecting data from water wells in the area, and met an amazing cross section of humanity as I knocked on doors, gave people my pitch, and asked them for permission to access their wells. Everything from polygamous Mormon families to paranoid-schizophrenic bikers to retired bioengineers, with the occasional Jack Mormon thrown in. Camping on the banks of the San Pedro, hiking all day with a U of A Suburban complete with gas card; it was a wonderful time.


Moron polygamist Mormon huh. They would not let you into check the wells but into their lifestyle and living arrangements. What an Asshole
Very few of the Mormons round the Saint David area are polygamous. They do however tend to marry within the faith (shocking) and a fearful of those knocking on he door saying let me test you water and then view your faith and lifestyle, and didn't feel quite at home sorry.
Then when you consider that the city of Tucson in the 60's in order to sustain the water for the expanding city needs. The city of Tucson did a novel thing, they went and bought ranches in the San Pedro Canada Del Oro, Altar Valley, Santa Cruz. However only ranches that had wells then drilled for the maximum depth possible and pumped the shit out of all the surrounding water tables, causing huge fissures defunct ranches farm into bankruptcy. When that was gone they came up with the CAP water project water for the Colorado river to Tucson with 100 years of construction debt. Then to top off that every registered well in state of AZ by law have to send in samples to the DEQ annually and if public well monthly.

So let me get the picture here some tye dye Birkenstock hair farming moron comes knocking at the door body language say judgement. With bottle in hand as nice as faced can muster can I take a sample of your water with a smile of course.
WHAT AN ASSHOLE. and an offended asshole AT THAT.

Thanks; for the considerations Wolfhounddaddy, as that is always been my point attack the narrative. I ask for opponents to justify the narrative. If it cant be justified in rational discussion it evolves into derogatory demeaning standards. Where really there is no soft punch.
Every citizen is going to take the hit in legalization on one side or the other. To leave this up to some quasi independent governing agency. That leaves everything & mean EVERYTHING up to closed door regulation making, policy adopting, policing enforcing group is stupid. The proposed would have used the non-binding citizens group as a media advertising scheme to self promote. Look at what we took and now can give away with 35% on average taken off the top for administration fees. And people wonder why he wage disparity

WTF is your problem, dude? I made the effort to add a little relevant content about a large grow operation I saw in Benson in 1987 to a thread about Old School Arizona, and you project some preconceived notions on me and call me an asshole? FWIW, the Mormons had no problem with me, and in fact I met a couple jack Mormon brothers and spent two days straight drinking with them. The only person who wouldn't let me test their well was the paranoid schizophrenic biker. Maybe that was you?

You should post stuff about legalization in the appropriate thread and stop shitting this one up with your semi-coherent babble. Or actually post something about Old School Arizona that has to do with weed, not water rights.
