Now we know which groups funneled the most cash into the right hands.
It would be interesting to see the campaign contributions to each individual legislator for the licensees.
The process works when we go from worrying about organised crime to worrying about corruption
Too much trouble. Just legalize the recreational use already.
Isn’t it interesting that the “bureaucrats” were rewarded?
David Ige has his hand prints all over this.
Will HMSA cover these prescription drugs?
I hope that these people don’t start ripping off medical marijuana users with high prices. There are only around 13,000 registered medical marijuana users. With 16 dispensaries, that averages out to 812 customers per dispensary. With the high license costs and probably big costs to set up production facilities and dispensary stores, they can’t make a profit unless they charge exorbitant prices.
Another concern, one of the license winners says “this is a brand-new project, so we don’t have anything to copy. We don’t know exactly how many or when we can bring the seeds in. We can’t transport seeds across the ocean, so we need guidance there”. Do these license winners know what they are doing? Does anybody, other than illegal drug growers, know how to properly grow marijuana?
It will also be interesting to see if any contributors to this discussion evidence even the slightest concern for children who are about to have their lives destroyed so that a few utterly self centered degenerates can indulge their appetites for recreational brain numbing dope and so that an even fewer number can become awash in this blood money.
We already have medical marijuana here. This is just a (ridiculously bureaucratic) way to get it safely and legally.
“Reefer Madness” wasn’t a documentary and using marijuana doesn’t turn a person into “a self centered degenerate” and children are much less at risk from marijuana than they are from alcohol and powerful prescription drugs… or even aspirin.
Why is Pono Life Sciences getting a permit in Maui when they are in Oahu?
This is like a giant steam roller; as slow as it moves, but eventually it will get here.
