    young woman who now has to make 10k cash drop at the local bank five blocks from work and whose life was just put in danger.

    And not all dispensaries were in any way involved in fighting Prop 19.  I know quite a few people who work with, buy from, or sell to real co-ops.

    There's no arguing that there are folks flatly in this as a business who don't give a shit about sick people, but there are still a lot of people just trying to make a basic living while providing quality medicine to people who need it, too.

    I can't throw them in one basket of "I don't care".

    Mr. Universe is a known degenerate Robotophile, and his sources include former Browncoat Traitors. What is their agenda in leaking top secret information about the Reavers and endangering us all?

      "young woman" to carry that kind of cash.
      The Fed's blocked the banks from credit card transactions with internet polka sites.

      Players bought visa gift cards and the polka site reimbursed the extra charge.

      Players sent checks.

      Not to mention the several comments about hiring police details to escort to the drop.

      Those MM joints doing farts about this are just the type that defeated the legalization proposition. If it had passed, recreational weed would NOW be legal (and taxed) in CA, AZ, NV, OR and spreading east like a wildfire.

        It doesn't matter if it's a gift card.  

        They can't turn the card into cash.  

        SOMEONE has to take cash to the bank.  If they're smart, they'll make frequent runs now so there's no big hit.

        Prop 19 failed for the same reason Prop 8 passed.  Half the people in this state who pretend they're progressive wasted all their time, effort, and cash on a Presidential race that was already a foregone conclusion.
