    If Az. has something like 40 million dollars in surplus from MMJ why are Az schools still so bad???? I thought schools where supposed money from MMJ sales?

    Shiela Polk once again coming in with her crazy propaganda ruining bills… ugh her secretary sighs when I call now. Thanks for bringing up my state, lots of exciting things happening here and you guys did a great job covering it. It is VERY hard to ammend the MMJ program here, any laws voted in here need a 3/4 majority in the senate and house, not to mention Ducey that can still veto this. SB 1420 recently just passed the senate and is on its way to the house. That will be a huge milestone for us, because currently unless you are very in tune with the growers your meds come from there is no way to know what is in it, or even a guarantee of the amount of cannabinoids in your meds. Our MMJ program is definetly a sacred thing to most of us here and it still feels somewhat fragile. With legalization, we were close in 2016 but with a bill that was not written in favor of the industry so I’m sure when we get a proper bill it will pass.
