meet_ice_cream-page-001(1).jpg

By popular demand, MAPP will be holding its first public meeting where real live people will be present on Sunday, August 7 at 6:30 p.m. at the fabled Beatnik Lounge at 61597 29 Palms Hwy in Joshua Tree, CA 92252.

medical_mj_logo.pngmj_bill_on_capital_steps.jpgWe are going to catch up with all the cannabis legal and medical going-ons that transpired during the pandemic lock-down as well as share stories about how our use of cannabis helped us get through the COVID crisis.

We will celebrate this most wonderful event with an ICE CREAM SOCIAL featuring ice cream sundaes - non-medicated of course. If you would like to bring a desert, some cookies or whatever (non-medicated of course again) to add to the celebration, you are encouraged to do so.

zoom_meet.pngIt will be great to see as many of you as possible, but if you can’t make it to the actual meeting, you can join us virtually as we will podcast the meeting via Zoom.

100_2343_(2).JPGWe will have a few door prizes to give away too including our Absolutely Fabulous silicone pipes.

seniors.pngI know this is controversial, but I am an RN and I work at COVID vaccination, testing and treatment sites so I always err on the side of caution. Please understand that many of our members are elderly and other high-risk community members, so we do ask that you wear a mask during the meeting. If you don’t have one, we will provide you with one.

Mark your calendar for Sunday, Aug. 7 at 6:30 p.m.  so your short-term memory loss won’t cause you to miss it. All the info, including the Zoom link is printed below.

take_action.pngIt Ain’t Over Yet – still work to be done to get cannabis as widely available and acceptable as Budweiser and Coke – so if you have about 60 seconds, here is something you can do.

fired_(2).jpgAdult-use of cannabis has been legal in California for over five years. It is beyond time for lawmakers to protect the right of employees to use marijuana when they are off the job. AB 2188, which would protect the rights of employees so that employers can’t discriminate against workers or job candidates who legally consume marijuana when they are not at work and where there is no indication of impairment, is headed to a vote in the state Senate. Before it can get to the floor though, it needs to pass the Senate Appropriations Committee.

mj_bill_committee.jpgYou can help by calling Appropriations Committee Chair State Senator Anthony J. Portantino’s office at (916) 651-4025. Ask him to move AB 2188 out of the suspense file (they will be so impressed you to knew to ask for this) and forward it to the Senate floor to pass the bill and put an end to unfair workplace discrimination against people who use cannabis legally. Don’t forget to say “Thank You.”

Pot & God Cause Mass Gun Murders

 

POT___GOD-page-001.jpg

Flaura_ingrham.jpgox News Host Laura Ingraham places the blame for the gun violence crisis in America on “what legalization of marijuana has done and is doing to an entire generation of Americans with violent consequences.”

Claiming studies “have explored the connection between regular pot use and an increased risk for serious mental illness and even violent psychotic episodes in some cases,” Ingraham wants to know “Why aren’t people in general not talking more about the pot psychosis violent behavior connection?”

laura_miller_(2).jpgTo back up her contention that cannabis is at the root of the mass shootings, Ingraham brought psychiatrist Dr. Norman Miller on her television show. Connecting the dots between mass murders by people carrying AK15s, Dr. Miller expounded if “we are really interested in solving the gun violence problem, I think we’re gonna have to look under the rock and look at the role of drugs, particularly marijuana, in causing the violence, particularly the mass violence.”

Finally the truth be told - it’s not the easy availability of guns, but the easy availability of cannabis that is the cause of mass shootings.

paxton.jpgGoing one big step further in exposing the true cause for mass gun violence, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton stated in an interview with conservative radio host Trey Graham that if he had the opportunity to talk with the parents whose children had been murdered in the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde Texas, “I’d have to say, look, there’s always a plan. I believe God always has a plan.”

GODS_PLAN-page-001(1).jpgIf Paxton believes God’s plan was for an 18-year-old to kill 19 children and their two teachers in a school classroom, then Texas has shown the way to end this mass gun violence

States should enact laws like the new anti-abortion law in Texas, that would allow a private citizen to sue anyone who facilitated God’s plan to use guns to murder large numbers of people. Like the Texas law, counting_money.jpgthe citizen bringing the lawsuit against anyone facilitating God’s plans for mass gun violence would be entitled to damages in an amount of not less than $10,000 as well as attorney’s fees.

Laura Ingraham and Ken Paxton got it right - guns don't kill people - pot and God kill people.

The Height of Absurdity & It's Costing U $$$

 

cannabis_tax_exceeds_alcohol_tax_headline-page-001.jpgtaxes_alcohol_vs_pot-page-001.jpg

In 2021, states took in $3 billion in excise taxes on cannabis compared with about $2.5 billion on alcohol. California generated $832 million in excise taxes, about twice as much as from alcohol sales.  According to data provided by the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP), states in which cannabis is legal generated on average 20% more revenue from retail cannabis sales than they did from alcohol sales.

 “[I]t is remarkable that in the span of just a few years, the narrow ‘sin taxes’ that states created to apply to cannabis purchases have managed to surpass the comparable taxes that have long applied to alcohol,” authors of the analysis wrote.

mj_vs_alcohol-page-001.jpgThis is absurd especially when considering that alcohol causes around 80,000 deaths a year and no one dies from cannabis. The absurdity continues to grow as alcohol causes broken homes, significant health problems such as pancreatitis, hepatitis, cardiovascular disease and rotten brains and cannabis not only doesn't cause these ailments it can actually prevent them. The absurdity maxes out considering the amount of alcohol consumed far exceeds the amount of cannabis consumed.

The report noted that several other states are considering joining the 11 states that have legalized recreational cannabis. Carl Davis, one of the authors of the ITEP study, said the best way to maximize revenue is to remove barriers to entry for the businesses that cultivate and sell marijuana. “If their priority becomes to maximize revenue, the way you do that is to allow for a large number of retail outlets and allow for delivery and discourage local bans on cannabis shops.”

The rush to impose usurious tax rates on cannabis has led to this bizarre reality where cannabis tax revenue collections, which was legalized only 10 years ago, now outpaces alcohol tax revenues which were legalized 89 years ago.  Onerous taxation of cannabis is not good for our communities. We must keep fighting to reduce the usurious taxation of shirtless_man.jpgdrunk.jpgcannabis because if we can get cannabis cheap and widely available, many people will switch from alcohol to cannabis for their consciousness altering substance-of-choice. I don’t have to tell you how much better we would all be if people consumed more pot and less booze.

The only silver lining in this excessive tax revenue amount is that state legislators are far less likely to genuflect before the Evangelical social taxpayer__.jpgagenda and, unlike abortion and LGBT civil rights, are not going to re-instate cannabis prohibition and kill this new and significant golden goose revenue stream. Perhaps if abortions and LGBT civil rights were taxed at as high a rate as cannabis, maybe those state legislators who are falling all over themselves to overturn them, would be voting to protect them.

LIVE EVENT: Sheriff & DA Candidates Take On Cannabis for Riverside County

police_chasing_rev_(2).jpgsheriff_riverside_co.pngDA_riverside_co.jpgpolice_chasing.gif

Can the Riverside Co. Sheriff's and DA's Offices have rational cannabis policies? Two Candidates Think They Can!

Even though Riverside County has made significant strides towards mainstreaming cannabis for both personnel and business uses with its very realistic policy on personal cultivation for medical users and implementation of an ordinance for commercial businesses, there are still substantial complaints on the actions of law enforcement particularly the heavy handed approach of the Sheriff’s office.

With a nod to a more enlightened approach, you are invited to join in a special MAPP ZOOM meeting and podcast on Sunday, April 3 at 7:30 p.m. where you can meet, hear and question two candidates who are opposing the June re-election of the current DA and Sheriff.

Michael Lujan is a former Captain in the Riverside County Sheriff’s office who retired after serving Riverside County residents for 31 years. He is opposing current Sheriff Chad Bianco who is embroiled in controversy over his refusal to enforce state and county mask mandates and, as reported by the Press Enterprise, “was a dues-paying member of the Oath Keepers” a far-right organization that played a major role in the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. His implementation of "Marijuana Mondays" which were escalated to include "Weed Wednesdays" resulted in a heavy-handed approach to legacy commercial cannabis cultivators in the Anza Valley area of Riverside County who had been cultivating cannabisanza_raid.jpg for a decade or more but were denied the ability to legally cultivate when Riverside County refused to include them in its commercial cannabis cultivation ordinance even though they are in an area zoned for rural agriculture.

The Honorable Burke Strunsky, a judge for the Riverside County Superior Court is opposing current DA Michael Hestrin. Although more low-key and less demonstrative then Bianco, Hestrin has generally worked in tandem with Bianco and has done little, as Riverside County's chief law enforcement officer, to aid in the implementation of Prop. 64 which was approved by Riverside County voters in 2016.

edison_gomez-krause.jpgJoining us on this special meeting/podcast is Edison Gomez-Krause, founder of the High County Grower’s Association which advocates for the legacy cannabis cultivators in the Anza Valley region. Edison will present the history of cannabis cultivation in the region and detail the on-going problems, travails and fruitless efforts of cultivators to bring their area into compliance and the refusal of the Sheriff’s and DA’s offices to work with them.

strunsky_pic.jpglujan_c_lick-page-001.jpgCaptain Lujan and Judge Strunsky offer striking and compelling alternatives in many areas and not just in cannabis law enforcement to the current Sheriff and DA in Riverside County. You are cordially invited to attend a most enlightening virtual zoom meeting on Sunday, April 3 at 7:30 p.m. with Captain Lujan and Judge Strunsky. This is your chance to meet, hear and ask questions of both candidates. Zoom MAPP meeting info below:

Police Strike Back at Police

 

police.pngPolice Getting Police to Rethink Legalization & Drug Laws

Zoom MAPP meet Sunday, March 6 at 7:30 p.m.

Police have always been the biggest enemy to cannabis legalization and drug law reform. Fortunately there is a growing number of police who want to change that. I would like to invite you to a meeting tonight, Sunday, March 6 at 7:30 p.m. - MAPP's virtual ZOOM meeting where you can meet and hear Diane Goldstein, Executive Director Law Enforcement Action Partnership who will explore and explain the changing dynamics in how police enforce cannabis laws in the age of creeping legalization as well as how to change police attitudes to drug law reform.

diane_goldstein.jpgDiane Goldstein, a 21-year veteran of law enforcement, served as the first female lieutenant for the Redondo Beach CA police department. She is the Executive Director of the Law Enforcement Action Partnership, a group of criminal justice professionals that work advancing justice and public safety solutions. Goldstein is a guest columnist for many media organizations, and is recognized as an expert on criminal justice and drug policy.

leap_(2).jpgWorking from the inside to change the inside, Diane will explain the programs and actions undertaken by LEAP to effect change in drug policy and in police departments across the nation.  Diane will also take a look at SB County’s refusal to enact Prop. 64 and the malicious and racist enforcement actions of the SB County Sheriff’s office.

Join us for a most enlightening meeting tonight, Sunday, March 6 at 7:30 p.m. Information for zooming on in on your computer or on your phone is below. Looking forward to having you join us.

SB County Sheriff's Attack & MAPP meeting Sat. March 6

 

sheriff_target_asian_trucks-page-001.jpg

PLUS MAPP MEETING INFO

The San Bernadino Sheriff’s office has gone off the deep end of reefer madness with their recent busts of mainly Asian cannabis cultivators and the highway robbery of armored vehicles carrying over $1 million of cash from cannabis dispensaries.

Aided and abetted by the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors, they refuse to recognize the will of the voters of California AND San Bernardino County who voted in favor of cannabis legalization when they approved Prop. 64 in 2016.

SB County Sheriff’s committed highway robbery three times when they looted Empyreal Logistics armored vehicles in November and December 2021 and January 2022 that were transporting money from cannabis dispensaries.  cop_stealing_(2).jpgThe theft totaled more than $1 million which was then transferred to the FBI so the Justice Division might pursue forfeiture using federal legislation. SB County could receive as much as 80% of the cash from the Justice Division’s “equitable sharing” program. The earnings of state-licensed marijuana suppliers usually are not liable to forfeiture under California legislation hence the reason why SB Sheriff’s turned the money over to the feds and not the state.

sheriff_with_gun_crop.JPGContinuing their malicious program to undermine California’s Prop. 64, SB Sheriff’s office undertook a series of raids from Feb. 7 to Feb. 13. Utilizing 16 search warrants for properties in Hesperia, Oro Grande, Twentynine Palms, Wonder Valley, Landers, Adelanto, Helendale, and Lucerne Valley, they arrested 17 people.

sheriff_family_arrest.JPGTotaling more than the combined racial make-up of everyone else arrested, 10 of the 17 people arrested were Asian. This lopsided number of Asians targeted by SB Sheriff’s officers’ is outrageous. Do Asians really cultivate more marijuana then white, black and Native Americans combined? sheriff_with_assalt_rifle_(2).JPGThis targeting of Asians is no coincidence. Is it anti-Asian bigotry? If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck and walks like a duck, it’s a duck.

For a chest-thumping article on the SB Co. Sheriff’s office despicable actions busting the cannabis cultivators that lists the names of the people arrested and their locations CLICK HERE. For the low-down on the armored vehicle robbery of over $1 million dollars of cannabis cash, CLICK HERE.

San Bernardino County, which spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in a losing lawsuit to over turn Prop. 64 in 2017, continues to do everything it can todeny.jpg deny its citizen the benefits of Prop. 64 even though the majority of voters in SB County voted in favor of Prop. 64. Rather then allow people who have property in areas zoned for agriculture to legally cultivate cannabis, the County arrests them for doing what is allowed in next door Riverside County. Furthermore, the SB BOS turns a blind eye to the Sheriff’s office subverting the will of the people by robbing legitimate dispensaries of their cash using federal law as a runaround state law.

We will be discussing SB County’s refusal to enact Prop. 64 and the malicious and racist enforcement actions of the SB County Sheriff’s office along with taking a look at the role law enforcement continues to play in undermining cannabis legalization at the next virtual zoom MAPP meeting on Sunday, March 6 at 7:30 p.m.

DSC05758_(2).JPGHandling $$$ in the Cannabis Business and other topics at Sunday, Feb. 6 at 7:30 p.m. Zoom MAPP meet

ian_rassman.jpgWant to lean the intricacies of managing a thriving cannabis business – the easy part is growing the cannabis and selling it to clients. The difficult and trickiest part is how to manage the money that you receive and spend so as to not run afoul of the law. At the Sunday, Feb. 6 at 7:30 p.m. Zoom MAPP meeting, you will have the opportunity to learn about this and so much more from our special guest Ian Rassman. From being the Operations Manager for the International Olympics Committee to currently developing compliant banking and payment solutions for the cannabis industry, Ian Rassmussen has an exemplary vitae.

As the Executive Director of Los Angeles NORML, one of the oldest chapters in the country of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, Ian is well-versed in the legal conundrums faced by cannabis consumers and businesses. Whether cannabis activist or cannabis entrepreneurial consultant, Ian’s perspective on what is happening in the cannabis world is eye-opening if not eye-popping.

As the featured speaker at the Sunday, Feb. 6 Zoom virtual MAPP meeting, Ian will provide an insider’s insights at to what is happening in the commercial cannabis industry. He will take a specific look at the over-regulated and underdeveloped cannabis industry in Los Angeles which provides insights to what is happening throughout California from the no_weed.jpgsupersaturated cannabis dispensaries in the Coachella Valley’s green triangle of Desert Hot Springs, dispensaryopen_sign_(2).jpgPalm Springs and Cathedral City to the refusal of most cities and counties to allow any development at all.

Ian will also speak about his pet project which is the enacting of the provisions of SB34, the Dennis Peron and Brownie Mary act, which allows cannabis businesses to provide free cannabis or cannabis products to medicinal cannabis patients or their primary caregivers.

After Ian’s presentation there will be ample time to ask the questions and get the answers you will need to know if you have any interest in the cannabis business whether as a perspective entrepreneur, customer or just because the cannabis business is fascinating.
