  1. Thanks Mike! May I post this and updates to my blog? I'll credit you, of course, for the info

  2. granby: 1,239 no / 1,575 yes

    granby is a red state & rural - not at all like blue state & liberal amherst or northhampton. if granby voters say yes to medical marijuana, then it is a real issue for both right & left.

  3. Hugh, Granby didn't say yes to medical, they said yes, to LEGALIZATION. Big news, legalization did better in MA than medical. The rest of your point is well taken. It does well even in red state rural Granby..

  4. can we hope for legalizsation by the beginning of 2011?

  5. You people are crazy for thinking legalization would be agood thing for ma residents, all it would do is invite more corporate takeover situations and ruin any chance of mom and pop grower communities to pop up and thrive helping to support more rural communities. Ma needs medical with non profit run dispensarys, and local growers supplying. Only way it will work without taxachussettes taking control of the whole situation and before you know it your stuck smoking weed grown by some state run facility. Lame, I hope it never goes legal in ma so I can keep making real money, and helping sick people

  6. Zannmann you are missing much. First of all medical marijuana in MA is more likely to be run and messed with by the State of MA than legalization. See NJ right now! And secondly any initiative that runs in MA for legalization will allow personal use non taxable cultivation. I will grow my own legally if any corporates take over. For somebody with a self interest in making $ off of patients, you are badly informed.

  7. And Zannmann I believe growers like yourself would make just as much money with legalization passing by ballot in MA. With no worrying about thieves, cops, or rats. And almost everybody approving of your work in society. The medical movement in MA has a chance of passing a bill at the State House, there is a national and local group funding that lobbying. But how will it look throuhg the elected officials in MA? See New Jersey where they passed a bill at the state house. The most restrictive bill in the nation and then the new Republican Governor and the hacks running it decided to get even more restrictive so now the NJ legislature is trying to pass a new bill to get around some of the crazy restrictions...Letting the state run your medicine? In MA? It's tough to swallow. Legalization is far better in my opinion. And I am a medical user that would easily get a prescription if medical passes in MA even with the strictest of rules. I want to grow my own. And I'll still purchase the local growers strains! Got to taste it all..We can do legalization right if enough people are vocal on what it has to include. Number one has to be the right to grow your own for non commercial, personal use with no taxation of that crop. For medical users. For recreational users. And for growers themselves. No jail or fines, home invasions, pets shot, guns drawn, broken down doors, ever for personal use pot cultivation. If we get that? NO MAJOR CORPORATIONS CAN TAKE OVER. WOULD YOU BUY FROM JOE CAMEL OR TRADE SOMETHING SMALL FOR SOMETHING BETTER WITH 100 FRIENDS WHO ARE GROWING IT LEGALLY FOR PERSONAL USE. THINK ABOUT IT. MANY ARE GROWING NOW. IMAGINE IF IT WASN'T ILLEGAL? GIVE LOCAL GROWERS THE BALL. MAJOR CORPS HAVE PROBLEMS WITH ACCESS TO THIS MARKET. THEY CANT GET THE FINANCING, IT'S CONSIDERED TO MUCH A SIN FOR THE MAJOR WALL STREET MONEY & FEDERAL LAW WONT LET THE CIG COMPANIES GET INTO IT....

  8. Now is the time for legalization. The sooner it starts , the better for the whole world. All it will take is 1 state to stand up for it's rights. Once the first domino falls, the rest will fall very quickly, to the point where a few years down the road, the stauncest prohibitionist will have to say "What was all the fuss about?".
