        here in Northern CA.  At least seems so.

        Even Democrats can be asses. Look at Rahm Emanuel.

        •  Do you know whether there's been (0+ / 0-)

          a proportional increase, or is it just that there's been more medical MJ around and thus what was previously a relatively fringe issue is now prominent?

            that outweighs production scale.  

            95% of all life forms that once existed on earth are now extinct. It is only a matter of time until the Republicans follow suit.

            •  I don't know if that's the case (0+ / 0-)

              but we have to deal with the fact that marijuana is still illegal under federal law, and there is still a huge bureaucracy behind enforcement of that fact.  But as I say, the budget talks are a good opportunity to rid ourselves of much if not all of that.

              •  I'm just hoping Holder goes in second term (0+ / 0-)

                he is responsible for most of the policy and arrests.  Yes the DOJ has to uphold hte current law, but that does not mean they have ot actively pursue every single lead.

          four years as in the previous four.

          The industry in CA hasn't really grown in that time.

          You can't have a conversation about drug policy with a person who has no interest in drug policy, but only a desire to defend a personal idol.

          It's like trying to have a productive discussion about music theory on a Justin Beiber fan site.
