With so much going on in the world, why is the Ganja such a major time waster? Not the sit on the couch and do nothing waster, but the lets make lots of money... and THEN go after our rivals... just like street gangs, outlaw bikers and major oil/pharmaceutical/banks.
Seattle has had some pretty if-y busts lately. Ya, I like that they got a search warrant for 'smell'. So, let me get this right. An anonymous call about a disturbance:> suspicious person in back yard:> 'heard screaming':> and the police SUDDENLY find themselves inside the house ...
(and why is every story virtually the same, word for word?)
Parking enforcement call for backup:> backup notices 'smell':> search warrant for 'smell':> Big bust of someone already on the record as trying to LEGALY start a coop/dispensary.
Would any of this have to do with Gang Wars... I mean 'professional disagreements as to structure, status and form'? Or as suggested, a Web Weed War of Words?
I dont know who this Muraco Kyashna-tocha is but her website freaks me the fuc# out. Nothing like being observed by the intelligentsia like some strange new species of insect.
I like the idea of going back to basics. Friend helping friends. A true co-operative: from each according to their abilities, to each according to their needs. A true collective, not-for-profit, finical transparency and 100% accountability.
As it stand right now, hwo is friend, who is foe? Is this rote and greed from the inside, a Trojan Horse from the Drug Task-force, or something more mundane? A few silly busts, some personality conflicts and the paranoia of Federal prosecution and DEA busts could be wearing heavily on the backs of the few who are the least likely to be able to bare the brunt: Our disabled, sick and dieing... you know, the ones the whole Medical Marijuana is all about?
Only a Not For Profit model is sustainable, logical and replicate-able. There aughta' be a law!
