Medical Merijuana, Pot Of Gold
A statement that Globe Farmacy expects to charge $450 for an ounce of medical marijuana prompted one planning and zoning commission member to ask the obvious question. “Four- hundred-fifty dollars? That’s a lot of money,” said Palmer Lund. “It looks to me there will be no demand for medical marijuana.” At this time, there is no medical insurance program that will cover the cost of the product.
Dr. Mark Siegel, whose proposal for a medical marijuana dispensary and grow facility is expected to be approved in Globe, said the contrary is true based on experience in other states. “There are no facilities who can keep up with the demand,” Siegel said. He explained that Arizona is allowing 124 dispensaries in the state and some of those dispensaries will not have their own grow site. Although an ounce of marijuana costs approximately $75 to $100 in an illegal sale, Siegel said the product they will be selling is of a different quality.
“The stuff we are manufacturing is a different strain from what people are growing in their back yard,” he said. He added that people who will be purchasing medical marijuana are looking for its pain relieving qualities. “It makes all the difference in a person’s quality of life,” Siegel said. “We want to educate people that this is truly a medicine.” Even though the dispensary is required by state law to be a not-for-profit organization, the attorney general has ruled that medical marijuana is taxable. City manager Kane Graves said any tax collected will most likely be applied to Globe’s general fund.

I was born in Houston, Texas. I moved to Cali when I was a kid.I love to cook.Sour Diesel is my all time favorite strain. I love a good sativa.Cannabis has helped me through so much mentally, physically, spiritually. What's not to love about this sacred herb.Cannabis is a divine thing.I feel so blessed to live in California and have my 215.
Not everyone is that lucky though. That's why I am here.I want to spread the news "Cannabis is not evil!" It does a lot of good for people! It would be easier to answer why DON'T I use cannabis. No really there are so many reasons why. Just to name a few......my asthma,allergies, insomnia, and stress. I think it prevents cancer. I feel more connected to the earth, more spiritual and aware. It makes the trees greener, the flowers brighter, food taste better, and good music sound even better.What can I say I love cannabinoids!

Will Sheriffs Babysit Your Marijuana? The Answer Is..
San Francisco Sheriff's deputies will keep a watchful eye on your pot stash while you go about your business in city buildings.
While those with medical marijuana cards are free to waltz into police headquarters, City Hall, or courthouses with their greenery untouched, it turns out recreational users of the herb will not be having much fun.
SF Weekly had noticed a man leaving his marijuana with deputies at the Hall of Justice and claiming he'd be back in 15 minutes. While this certainly looked like a pot-check, we were told by the city employees on duty that he never returned.
In fact, the department later noted that the unknown man pulled a variation of the trick every 18-year-old hoping to buy beer used when asked for ID. The old "I left it in the car" followed by a peel-out routine. The man in question told deputies he'd forgotten his medical marijuana card, left, and ran like hell.
For what it's worth, this is the Sheriff's Department's policy on toting drugs into a building:
No drugs are allowed in the building and those attempting to bring them in are subject to arrest. The only exception is for those individuals who are authorized to possess medical marijuana and have amounts which comply with their authorization.
It seems like there are no exceptions to "the only exception." Drag.
