Re: Open Thread

I'd rather limit the dispensaries to major medical centers. Reason being that California allowed dispensaries everywhere and it lead to heavy abuse of the system.

KentXie, you should probably sit this one out.
"I'm a dick and instead of having a discussion and explaining things, I'll just be a dick."

Maybe you should just have said that marijuana do not cause a significant uptick in diseases that needed to be treated and then brought the facts with it instead of being a dick.

And I didn't make an assumption. I just brought out the possibility that if marijuana can cause diseases like other smoked products, then those that rely on government insurance who contract the disease would end up increasing the amount of money the government has to spend to treat them.

Now do I know this? No, that's why I said, I am not familiar with the side effects of marijuana which sets up a perfect opportunity for someone who does know to just say
"no, marijuana would not make a significant impact."

Limiting the dispensaries to 35 statewide is intended to avoid the proliferation that happened in California.

Then why post on the conversation if you're not going to add to it?

I was adding to it before you waddled in...if you feel like continuing this then we should move to PMs; otherwise I'm done addressing this.

This worked well enough for cigarettes. But while I'd say the stoner lobby probably wouldn't organize very well against it, they did manage to overturn a number of state possession laws. Not sure I want to create the new generation of pothead Tea Party activists.

If I remember correctly, and I know I am correct because I only need to go back a page, I was responding directly to datadyne, not you. A little bit too anxious to start a fight aren't you?

No, this is just limiting the ability to open up shop to those with the most cash/best connections. This is like taxi medallions: the people lose.

Huh, interesting discovery. I keep covering one picture and then the other to make sure that they are in fact identical.

Re: Open Thread

Does anybody know of any large infrastructure projects scheduled for Sudbury St? Over the past few days hundreds of surveyor dots have sprouted up like acne all over the sidewalks from Cambridge St to Congress. Any ideas on what they might be for?
