    HA HA HA HA! “Get tougher with illegal shops.”

    Now who could have seen THIS coming when pot was legalized? And what does ‘get tougher’ mean? Send them to jail for pot violations? In liberal California? When the nation’s entire left wing whines about people in prison for pot convictions?

    HA HA HA HA HA! “Stop selling illegal pot products, sir, or I will report you to the principle!”

        You missed the real Good News in the article (actually, you probably read it . . .):

        “According to research by Arcview Market Research and BDS Analytics, Californians will spend $3.1 billion buying marijuana on the legal market, and $8.1 on the illegal one. In spite of the state’s voting to legalize marijuana use in 2016, the marijuana black market still thrives in California due to steep sales taxes attached to the drug.”

          Which is all the more reason why focus should be placed on raids such as this and the illegal vape shops/dispensaries this group is advocating. Certainly a step in the right direction and any reduction in the black market is something I think we can all get behind, no?

            Did you miss the “steep sales taxes” comment? Did you miss the wild mismatch between legal sales and illegal sales (3.1 to 8.1)? Did you forget that liberals hate putting people in jail for pot violations? Did you forget how easy it is – see 60 Minutes – to grow high grade pot in the Sonoma hills?

            Answer: No. You missed none of it. You are a liberal, and embracing falsehoods is your specialty. (“Legal pot will kill the Mexican Cartels, keep pot from kids, control potency, kill the black market, and educate the public!” Promises kept: zero.)

            So you are or are not in favor of reducing the black market footprint? That is the question. Not all these other shiny object issues you are trying to flash.

            Based on that seizure, the number was either 9.6 and now 8.1 OR the 8.1 needs to be reduced to 6.6. Either way, I believe it’s a move in the right direction, don’t you?

            You and I both know the 60 Minutes special wasn’t about how easy it is to grow high grade in the Sonoma Hills. That’s NOT what the point of the segment was. Trying to misinform again, Craig? Or, ts the following more accurate: I’ve passed along your bridge too many times. Maybe it’s time to stop feeding you with answers to your riddles. Maybe you’ll move to a different bridge.

            Key word: “seizure”. What happened to the guys growing the illegal weed? And how soon will they simply grow more?

            If you think the authorities can run around the entire state of California “seizing” illegal weed before it can be sold. . . I have a bridge I want to sell you.

            And you lie, again. 60 Minutes reported on a large, illegal, professional pot farm in the hills that was shut down . . . only to be up and running illegally in exactly the same professional condition 30 days later. (But for a liberal, that amounts to “success”!)

        Hey Craig, remember how you flipped out on a rage bender when I mentioned your bias against marijuana because of your deceased son? And you went OFF on me for daring to even MENTION your son? But now you’re posting things like this? Your hypocrisy knows no bounds I guess.

        Yeah, that was a real knee-slapper, alright. I also got a chuckle over you referring to Stephen Easterbrook as having “an extra-marital affair” even though the guy is divorced.

        I’m guessing the old transmission is starting to slip a little bit.

    “Among its proposals, the group says regulations should expressly ban the use of additives, cutting agents and artificial flavoring known to be harmful in cannabis vaping products. It also recommended more stringent standards for heavy metal testing of vaping hardware – the devices that are used to turn concentrated cannabis oil into a vapor.”

    “It is also critical that – like any other public health issue – we implement effective solutions that are based on data and facts, rather than fear, to address the root cause of these issues.”

    Spot on!

      Sounds wonderful. Problem: news reports in California indicate that legal dispensaries are buying illegally grown pot to keep prices low. Yep. Pot that isn’t tested for pesticides or potency or additives.

      Progress! Talk the Talk. Never walk the walk.

          Who wouldn’t agree? Geez, you must live in Fantasyland. It will NEVER happen. Illegal product will sell because it is easy to make, cheaper to sell, and liberals in California would crucify anyone for putting pot sellers in jail.

          What’s the risk of continuing with illegal product? Nothing.

            You’re basing this on your opinion, and since you know VERY little about this industry that doesn’t tread much water. We’ve been over this. The “black market” you’re so concerned about in California is primarily sending product to other states. Legal marijuana in California has for the most part killed the black market trade within CAlifornia. No one is purchasing illegal product of inferior quality when such high quality is available for virtually the same price. You’re basing your entire argument around a fairytale belief that people are still utiziling the black market in california, that’s just not true on the level you believe it is.

            Jon, you are an insurance employee. You are not supposed to give an opinion on anything other than insurance. The Jon Rule.

            You can totally give an opinion on things outside of insurance. The issue is you make statements as if they’re factual about marijuana that are solely based on your opinion, not reality. You have zero knowledge on what marijuana users are actually like, what daily users are like and the effects that marijuana has on them. You have based your opinion on poor life circumstances and personal bias, most likely related to the dead son you’ve brought up poorly on this very board. You blame marijuana for your anger instead of dealing with the internal issues you have, and so marijuana is just everything wrong with the world and you try to find reasons it’s bad to justify your anger. It’s sad.

          They died from cancer! HA HA HA HA! Right, Planet? Same thing as discounting THC caused deaths in car crashes, suicides, paranoid violent rage, etc.

            Actually, it is possible to ingest too much tobacco in a single sitting and die, per the CDC. Much like alcohol. But, that is not true of THC. Happy to help educate on this and dispel the misinformation some feel necessary to share on these boards.

    Hey Craig – since you’ve ignored me multiple times on another article, I’d thought I’d try asking you here since you’re obviously involved in this thread.

    Did you sign any kind of agreement when you were hired, and do you think it’s okay to do whatever you want in direct violation of the agreement you signed?

    From the CDC’s website:

    Updated November 8, 2019, at 1:00 PM EST

    What is New
    Recent CDC laboratory testing of bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid samples (or samples of fluid collected from the lungs) from 29 patients with EVALI submitted to CDC from 10 states found vitamin E acetate in all of the BAL fluid samples. Vitamin E acetate is used as an additive in the production of e-cigarette, or vaping, products. This is the first time that we have detected a potential chemical of concern in biologic samples from patients with these lung injuries.

      Oh, man. You should go have a Pot Party! Your beloved THC dodged the bullet on this one.

      (Never mind all the tough regulatory control on that Vitamin E acetate from your pot loving friends; I’m sure next time they will be really tough).

      But it doesn’t mean you can keep saying THC isn’t physically addictive anymore. Or that it doesn’t cause mental illness. Or birth defects. Car crashes. Psychosis – the permanent kind. Loss of IQ. Memory loss.

      But hey, for a Pot Lover, this is a big victory! You should hit the bong to celebrate!

        (Pushing the goalpost shifting aside) – What’s that? I am right and you are wrong? That’s what you are saying, right? The personal insults don’t belong here, but I understand the angst you hold inside doesn’t allow you to play by the rules out here. Which is why your comments are often deleted. I’ll turn the other cheek. Strike again if you so do desire.

        Craig,

        Do we need to go back to elementary school where we learn how to have a conversation? Please go back and educate yourself a little bit.

        Captain has said multiple times he does not partake. by making these comments you are only lowering yourself more than you have in the past few weeks. Take Smooth’s advice.

        It is not physically addictive, now if you said mentally addictive you would have been correct in that assertion. It does not cause mental illness in adults who are not predisposed to those mental illnesses All of your claims have been fact checked. Grow up and learn to admit there are areas you were wrong about and how you learned by reading the multiple articles people have shared with you discussing how your points are not valid.

        Now go ahead and attack me like usual.
