commented on Anti-Pot Cities May Get Sued
@6 Steve, the reality of the situation is that legal pot shops will open throughout the state within six months, and I expect them to be allowed in more communities than the grey-market medical shops. I'm not surprised about the prohibitionist rhetoric coming from local councils; I am trying to work to positively change it.
What I see you doing, however, is fighting tooth and nail against legalized pot for the rest of us. You sell pot without paying your employees and your taxes, and you have repeatedly sued the state to try and delay recreational shops that you expect to put you out of business.
You recently went on the offensive against the Legal Cannabis Day celebration at Seattle Center. Nevermind the critical battle we must win to save medical cannabis home grow this year, you seem to have boundless energy for internal fights. You have repeatedly claimed that the city is violating the law by letting recreational tokers convene in a public park, and you promised to go to battle with the City Attorney's office to stop the party. You say we have nothing to celebrate, but I watched a video of you a few months ago at a "medical" party where you lit a two-pound joint and joyfully shared it with teenage patients. You seem like a mean man who wishes for everyone to be unhappy.
You argue that the state will force "200 pesticides" onto our pot, knowing full well that list is comprised mostly of common, safe pot growing additives. You also have provided patients with plants and finished medicine that was treated with Eagle 20 (by DOW Chemical) and other dangerous pesticides, and you lie to spread ignorance and fear in hopes of maintaining your market share.
But you know your market share is slipping, and you have an exit strategy, don't you? I have repeatedly asked you about your plans to jump the medical marijuana dispensary ship, and you have repeatedly refused to answer. Do you intend to sell your 502-compliant lease?
You argue for special rights for you to sell pot on First Avenue, and you want to kill I-502 and remove the right of "non-patients" to legally possess an ounce—and soon, to buy that ounce in a safe environment where the owner doesn't smoke tobacco pipes inside, letch on the young female employees, and get into shootouts with the young male employees.
