    Why should Pot clubs pay any more taxes than any other business? does pot become “ok” with the Christian right if enough tax revenue is collected? Across the country, you hear “What about the children” until they see enough dollar signs… then it’s “Taxes for the children”… pot is harmless, pot DUI is simply a fallacy, NOBODY has ever died nor suffered any type of “overdose” from pot consumption it’s simply not possible… pot is NOT a gateway drug any more than coffee is, so how are the extra taxes even justified?

    This is simply BS! these idiots shouldn’t be teaching school when they don’t even know the facts about marijuana, Shawyer sounds like he studied pot by watching Reefer madness… he knows exactly squat about “the stuff”

    and the police department is simply thugs stealing from local business’s…

    “But Shawver said he didn’t want anything to do with the pot business because, like Tinajero, he’s been a high school teacher for decades and witnessed its negative effects on children.

    “I know exactly what happens with the stuff,” Shawver said. “I think we should have a Las Vegas style casino before we have medical marijuana.”

    It’s pretty clear from the video of Santa Ana PD raiding that pot shop like a gang of thugs, it’s one big racket for the council and their accomplices SAPD. If ever a time was right for the Feds to swoop in, here it is.

    That used to be called “influence peddling”

    As I’ve always thought; the lottery was fixed. If anything, there is a conflict of interest here with the City Council and pot shops. The current lottery (and winners) should be voided; the current ban should be held in place, everyone who submitted a filing fee for the lottery should be refunded, the whole lottery process should be done over with a State official in charge of the lottery. With the high fees collected, maybe a percentage; such as 50%, will go to the State to have a State official (not City) conduct the lottery on the City’s behalf.

    Just as I said before any vote “the MMJ cartels will be running this city.”

      This is fodder for a David Lynch movie.

    I wold strongly urge the Santa Ana City Council to repeal BB. From what has been exposed about this and other issues in OC regarding cannabis, I predict that something serious is going to happen to throw all of this into oblivion and necessitate a total do over anyway. I don’t see the State Legislature conceiving a plan that does not take away from any rights afforded in Prop 215 and SB 420. To wit, it will not stand.

    Good God. This whole situation is too much.

      What did you expect?? ha ha ha ha ha

      Take another bong hit Lucas.

        Mike, I don’t use bongs. Never will. I don’t like to use them.

          Too bad for you – I like the way it sounds.
