Pictures of Cleveland before and after Mike White and his crooks raped the community. Now, Mike's friends are raping my community.... and this shows you what my neighborhood will look like when they are done. I live in a beautiful historic neighborhood of East Cleveland and can hear the demolitions as I type.
I will also say the leaders of Northeast Ohio don't give a rat's ass about public health in general, as they enable excessive polluting here, mutating and harming citizens so they need healthcare. Then, they deny citizens proper healthcare. Pathetic.
Ohio is also far different than most states in the movement - we have one of the largest economies in the world, at nearly $-half-billion GPD - one in seven Ohioans are employed in agriculture - we decide who lives in the White House. As I tell my friends in the MMJ industry in New Mexico, Ohio is six-times their market - twice the market of Colorado - we can call the shots at the national level on this, if we have good leaders here! Do we have good leaders of this movement here? OMCA does.
I don't think the leadership in Ohio cares a rat's ass about patients or what works in other states - and we are asking them to go against the Federal government, so it is hard to call these efforts "top down" - jobs and taxes are all that matter to our leadership (and most citizens) today. What will create jobs and taxes?
I agree the coverage of this is unnecessarily snarky. I know lots of people involved with all MMJ campaigns statewide and know they will all work together - they are some of the coolest people I know in Ohio and they are committed to this cause. That there are two petition drives right now increases organizing, attention and exposure for the overall cause... that is good, and perhaps that is intentional. What is certain is MMJ will be legal for commerce in Ohio starting in late 2012/3... it polls at around 80% of Ohioans for MMJ. What will that look like here? What I'd love to see Scene do with their dead trees is challenge all the great planners and leaders of Northeast Ohio to offer up their visions for Northeast Ohio after this legislation passes. They will spend 5 years planning a freeway off-ramp in Avon Lake but don't have the vision to look one year over the horizon to the opening up of entirely new economies here. Please - get the big, global picture, Cleveland.... visit Denver if you need a clue. BTW - hemp will be legal to grow in Ohio in 2012, as well - what are our leaders' visions for growing Northeast Ohio's economy with hemp?
I live in East Cleveland and have come to the conclusion the leaders there hate the citizens and want to cause them harm to drive them away, so they may sell the city to University Circle, Cleveland Heights and GE.
It will only be available in Colorado (and eventually other legal states... nearest is Michigan), with a prescription. Hot Sauce Williams doesn't use transfats or High Fructose Corn Syrup in their current products or in this prototype sauce - the marijuana extraction is organic
