Andrew Myers wants dispensaries to have monopoly on growing marijuana??? (tags)
In this July 13, 2014 article in the Sunday Arizona Republic on page A26 it sounds like Andrew Myers, the director of the Arizona Dispensaries Association wants to keep growing marijuana illegal to the general public so the medical marijuana dispensaries that he represents can have a monopoly on growing and selling marijuana. Which means they will be able to continue selling medical marijuana at the outrageously high price of $300+ an ounce.

Obama’s Justice Department Declares War on Medical Pot (tags)
The federal government recently escalated its war against medical marijuana. In San Diego and other southern California counties, instead of targeting medical marijuana dispensaries themselves, they are threatening the dispensaries' landlords with having their properties seized if they continue to rent to the dispensaries. They are also threatening publications like "Kush" and "Nug" aimed at the market for medical marijuana. This is yet another about-face for the Obama administration from its former assurances that they would leave medical marijuana dispensaries alone if they complied with state law.
San Diego Hammers Down on Medical Marijuana Dispensaries, Despite Public Support (tags)
Despite overwhelming public input asking for a looser ordinance that would allow medical marijuana dispensaries to locate in commercial areas throughout San Diego and remain open while they pursued permits, the San Diego City Council voted 5-2 on Monday, March 26 for an ordinance that will close down all dispensaries for at least a year and force them to locate only in industrial zones — inconveniently far from the patients they serve. Even most of the Councilmembers who voted for the ordinance, which was tweaked at the last minute to make it slightly less restrictive, made it clear that they regard medical marijuana patients and the institutions that serve them as a detriment, not an asset, to the city.

A $10 billion soluton to a 10 cent drug war problem (tags)
Of course the simple solution to this problem is to legalize marijuana. Don't expect Sheriff Baca to do that. He wants to keep the drug war which is a jobs program for highly paid cops to arrest marijuana smokers. Hey cops always come up with these $10 billion solutions to 10 cent problems. But don't call the cops idiots. They are the ones that will get to keep the $10 billion they steal from us to pay for the mess they want to create.
