Afraid of transparency?

Again, the patients going through chemo, living with Parkinson's and seizing from Epilepsy wait. if Leslie Rutledge sat through a few severe seizure episodes or had to live like some of us with diseases or conditions that benefit from the calming effects of cannabis, she would be more compassionate. It is beginning to look like what Leslie Rutledge says is more important than the vote. This lady has to be controlled because this is wrong.

JPRoland read up on this - Judge Griffen is to blame for the delays, not the Attorney General.

GoHogs...You need to read up on this. Judge Griffen followed the law, because there is no doubt that there is the "appearance of bias" with Story and Roman and the way they scored the applications. The Judge told the MMC to continue processing applications, but in an unbiased way. The state is the one delaying with the appeals, even when this is not a final decision.

Everyone thinks that making marijuana legal will get rid of the big "back alley " money that is now being made.

All that making it legal does....money wise......is instead of the "back alley" the big $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ is now being made by white collar investors ( doctors and lawyers)

Amazing how changing the terminology from " marijuana"/"pot" to "cannabis " can make a huge difference on who profits $$$$$$$$$$$$$

General Mac nailed it. Public service is no longer that, but a way to enrich the old pocketbook. This whole mess is a perfect example.

Bear trap, you are also right on. May not be crappy when elected, but sure tempted shortly thereafter.

GeneralMac, are you trying to make a point? Are you a budding conspiracy theorist? That field is already over crowded. Usually, and again today, you are off the mark with your commentary. What are you talking about?You should change your handle to CaptainCrunch.
