Re: “Fog Begone

Make you wonder why the government won't listen to the people and legalize marijuana's use. What really concerns me is if he didn't have the positive results from them taking away the opiates. It seems rather inhumae to take away somebody's pain relief because they smoked a joint!

Re: “The Need for Weed

Obviously it is time to legalize marijuana. I get disgusted when I think of those who have lost their right to vote becuase they were caught smoking a joint or in possession of a roach clip. How can our legislatures be so stupid! A felony for possession of a natural plant. What a joke!

Re: “Copper Capers

Just a bunch of NIMBY's? The only purpose is to confuse the public? Are you kidding me? You need to do a bit of research yourself. Unbiased reports from Rosemont? You guys are funny!

Rosemont has done everything in their power to prevent the public from learning about the negatives the mine will bring. They went as far as owning website URL's like "" "".

to learn about one of the many issues with Rosemont visit Youtube and take a tour of SR83.
You say property values will rise, I'm laughing. Nobody will want to live anywhere near this region with the traffic Rosemont proposes for SR83. Property values in the region are already suffering.

Good profitable businesses will suffer. Sonoita and Elgin are home to many wineries and tourist destinations. When SR83 is loaded with mine traffic do you believe their businesses will not be impacted. How much will it cost everyone in this region?

If you want propaganda, talk to Rosemont. They told me at one of their open houses that they would improve SR83 and make it safe before they would use it. At first I bought it, but reviewing some of these "technical reports" you speak so highly of, tell me, what are the proposing? I know for certain they assume all of their employees will be carpooling to work. Nice way to show that they will not generate the volume of traffic that would make these technical reports provide the results they want. Results that will save them money at the expense of the public. Rosemont's PR is a joke. I trust them about as far as I can throw them!
