    Doctors are being pressured by the feds to reduce their providing opiate based pain meds to patients who suffer from chronic and horrific pain. Because of a small amount of abuse, millions of honest and careful patients are being denied the relief that they need in order to live productive lives. Medical marijuana is a natural product, one that no one has ever overdosed on. By not allowing their residents access to this, in a clean and legal manner, they are forcing people to street drugs, including heroin. I see no reason why anyone should have a problem with licensed medical pot sales. The nonsense about minors and schools is just a big, steaming pile of propaganda. I would ten times rather that my kids tried pot than alcohol or cigarettes. I would rather see a city ban liquor stores and cigarette shops. Most kids get their first drugs out of their grandparent’s medicine chest and liquor cabinets. I would love to open a really great bakery and donut shop next door to a pot shop. Think of all the money we could save if we stop letting pot be the venue of gangs and drug cartels, and made it legal, taxed and quality controlled. Cops could actually start doing something that mattered. All of this drama, over a product much less destructive than alcohol and cigs, and one that may be the only hope of patients who desperately need to find some relief from chronic pain. Grow up, Garden Grove.

    “Marijuana is a joke. I can tell you something – the 64 dispensaries we had – it was horrible. All it was is about money,” Broadwater said. “We can find a way to help the police department find officers instead of opening dispensaries.”

    This idiot is still around?

    Did you get paid to “consult” with regards to bringing marijuana sales to Garden Grove?

      So what if he did? Is making money a bad thing? They are called lobbyists. Would you feel the same if he was there to lobby for gun stores opening, paid by that lovely axis of evil known as the NRA?

    “8,000 pounds of marijuana”

    Four tons? Right, whatever you say, Chief.

      LOL…good one. Four tons of grass just boggles the mind. Total lie.
