MMM Reports lame duck article is the last I read, has anyone heard more about the possibility of a Senate vote?
Well......that is the "official" hangup......I wonder what the actual hangup is?There are some problems with the bill getting ironed out but I still have hope something will be accomplished this session. The labeling requirements for medibles (and the provisioning center bill is now tied to the medibles bill) is causing a problem. As it stands now the typical caregiver would have trouble meeting the labeling requirements and they are trying to clean them up to allow more to participate rather than restrict it to the provisioning centers themselves. We want caregivers to benefit from the system too. That is the hangup.
If you have been paying attention, you must have noticed that Obama hasn't been looking the other way. All he did was have one of his goons write a press release saying that they would be making it lower priority. They were supposed to start looking the other way, but what ACTUALLY has been happening? Do you think the feds haven't been continuing the war on sick people across the country, regardless of medical legal status. There is a big difference between "looking the other way" and "managing the extortion of the sick"Well I understand many people don't care for Obama but I really believe if anybody else was president, weed would not be legally sold to all adults in 2 states right now. Only him had the guts to go ahead and have the feds look the other way and ignore federal law, don't even think Clinton would had.
I didn't even look into getting my MM card until he was re elected for a 2nd term.
I also believe if the R's were in the WH right now, we would be at war with Iran and gasoline would be around $5 a gallon vs under $3 as it is now. Gas was over $4 back when GWB was in office and being from Texas he was an oil man and helped the oil companies make lots of $$$.
Look what Obama might be doing with immigration laws with using his executive powers to change federal law, not taking sides with the issue, just pointing out how Obama does what he feels is correct no matter what other think. Now if only Obama would use his powers to change federal law on marijuana, that would be awesome. Least he came out and said he feels weed isn't any more harmful then booze is.
Clinton was a jerk how he could not keep his pants on while in the WH and yeah he did go too far with changing Glass-Steagall law but if the banks had some morals not to abuse the changes, that might have prevented the collapse. They got greedy and then needed a bailout at our expense.
I personally feel everything went downhill when Reagan took office, now hes dead and we are still trying to recover from the damage he caused.
Then again, maybe it was the death of JFK when things started going downhill, we then got Nixon and Ford and then peanut farmer Carter .
A presidential campaign today costs Billions (aka thousands of millions) of dollars. We may need the government to pay (aka tax subsidize) these clowns for this garbage directly in order to stop the constant campaigning (aka legal bribery & extortion) for D or R and get them to actually do their work. It would be nice to begin judging these asshats on their accomplishments/failures, rather than their ability to succeed as profitable celebrities detached from reality.We need a prez that somehow isn't a politician and is also immune to money and greed while also being in it for something other than power and manipulation.....so we need to lower the age limit to 4 years old and find a doogie Houser type genius.
I've been saying just this for a while now. Campaigns should be 100% publicly funded. Each parties candidate gets a fixed amount of money, and fixed time period to campaign.... may the best man/woman win.A presidential campaign today costs Billions (aka thousands of millions) of dollars.

All I know is weeds been legal to buy in one state for all adults for almost a year now, thats still unreal to me. Recall back in Nov 2012, even AP news was saying its almost certain that the federal government will sue and stop Colorado from selling marijuana to all adults...then it became, well maybe the feds will allow people to possess weed but not to sell it, then as the months carried on and no word from Washington DC what they were or not going to do, it started to look like it might well happen.
Around one year ago I was on other non weed forums saying no way, I believe it when it happens, the feds will stop it at the last min, I was flat out wrong. Then months after Colorado had its first legal weed sale, wimpy Obama finally opened his mouth and said something like he feels weed isn't anymore harmful then alcohol is. Then July came and another state started selling weed to any adult.
That is a major freaken deal. I never thought I live long enough to see it happen. Sure back in the early 1980's I thought it happen but then came Reagan's "this is your brain on drugs" TV ads happen and then AIDS hit the news big time and for a bit, non married people were afraid to kiss each other, even the dentists all started wearing gloves and masks--which they still do today. Today we know kissing alone doesn't spread AIDS-it needs blood contact- and finally the big fear about marijuana frying ones brain is going away in parts of the country..in fact maybe all of the USA.
Do I love Obama, heck no, I think hes a wimp in many ways and he can shove those 55 mpg cars he wants us to buy, U know where ,,now hes crying about climate change, duh, the Earths climate has always been changing, how the great lakes happen, wasn't for ice ages, there be no great lakes here.
But Obama did allow 2 states to sell weed to all adults and 2 more states will be selling weed come next year. This is major-major news, even the DEA is screaming about it and getting nowhere with it. One can only hope come 2017, the movement will be too strong to stop, no matter who becomes the next president.
Obama is the best thing to happen to marijuana in a long, long time. Sure he could be doing much more for it but its still more then I ever dream would happen. I even quit using weed for 5 years starting back in 2004 expect when I visited Toronto once or twice a year cause it was so much cooler over there..then came MM in Michigan and Obama and I said what the hey, why not start using weed again in the USA, now I got this legal right to use MM here in Michigan..thats awesome and sometimes I still wake up and pitch myself that I'm not dreaming, that this has really happen.
