Re: “Battle for the Bud

Republicans love State's Rights, until they don't.

Democrats hate State's Rights, until they do.

Re: “Standing O

I am a CPA with several restaurants/bars as clients, Yes, they have all had to raise prices. It is not an exact science, though, on how much to raise them, and selectively on which items.

Those who want to slam the establishments and owners for raising those prices have NO clue, that most are not that profitable and that the owners and their families many times are still in the EITC range of income on their tax returns. Just because you own your own business doesn't mean you are wealthy or even making a good living.

However, on the flip side, several of my clients who are bartenders/waiters/waitresses have said that for the first time, they are actually getting paychecks for more than $0, and haven't had to disgorge some of their tips to pay the Social Security/medicare on their tip income.

Re: “Crop Conundrum

Field conditions are what they are. Farm work is what it is. Just how does Bslap propose to improve working conditions? I worked the fields as a kid, picking strawberries, hoeing the fields, cleaning the barns. If he thinks he can find "Americans" at any price willing to do that work, he is smoking some weird stuff.

I am not a fan of giving illegals an easy path to citizenship, as they are here illegally, but the H2A visa system is necessary and needs to be expanded.

Re: “Guest Opinion

So much misrepresentation, hyperbole, and blatant falsehoods in this article that I will not lower myself to try and respond point by point.

However, this kind of hit piece is to be expected from the left.

Do I like Flake? No, for many reasons. But he got this vote right.

Re: “Barely budding

There were several reasons why Prop 205 failed. The biggest detractor for me was the semi-monopoly it gave the current medical dispensaries and growers.

The Safer Arizona initiative goes too far in the other direction. Arizona voters will not go for a free-for-all, and they shouldn't.

Re: “Sticky Situation

Carpet Baggers is correct as to the MPP. They are not a friend of legalization except to the extent it can benefit certain contributors to the cause.

Their greed in the the way Prop 205 was written, was a part of the reason it failed.

Re: “Sticky Situation

It is the job of Congress to make law. Right now, the marijuana industry exists only due to administrative guidance from several Federal Agencies, which could change in a heartbeat.
