Original gave them 1 star (I was disappointed hard to reach; and name change; wondering what happened to RAW MMC - and said it was... read more one of the best in the town) - until Kyle step in to talk with me help me to understand everything better; we had good long chats; He explains what was going on with the new California's laws that had changed their business platforms. The 500 pages of CA's laws was not pretty some how. Our talks has only made me felt more stronger want to become activist / advocate for the change for "We The People" to have access to needing medicine; NOT "We For The GOVERNMENT". . . I totally understand clear and appreciates Kyle's time that he invest and chat with me. What a great guy; his original old school is the best.
Unfortunately, that's not the only message this raid sent. Thanks to decades of demonization, much of it fueled by alcohol and tobacco interests, marijuana still carries a stigma. Police actions like this only reinforce that stigma. That people who get their medicine from dispensaries instead of pharmacists are druggies, and the employees of such establishments can still get their mugs displayed like drug dealers.

The vote does not immediately translate to an open application process for those seeking a permit to open a dispensary, but rather to begin the conversation and research into creating the rules and regulations that will allow medical marijuana sales in the future. With the total ban in place, City Council would have been unable to approach the topic with any real meaning. At least with the new amendment, Fresno can move forward on deciding what medical marijuana operations could look like within city limits.
Cannabis delivery has never been easier thanks to Vireo Health’s New York medical marijuana delivery service. We understand that individuals prescribed medical marijuana can’t always make it to a dispensary. At the same time, cannabis-based capsules, oral solutions, vaporization cartridges, and vaporization oils can be a vital part of treating chronic pain, cancer, AIDS, epilepsy, and other serious conditions. Going without that vital medication for even a day can be painful and difficult.
Both sides of the argument were present during the discussion as members of the public took to the dais. Law officials rebuked the statement made by pro-cannabis – that by allowing legal marijuana, the black market would disappear – arguing that the imposed taxes would raise costs significantly and drive those who could not afford legal cannabis back to the black market. However, they provided no counters to any claims made by the medical marijuana community which consisted of relief for symptoms of cancer, physical pain, anxiety, and insomnia to name a few. It is perhaps, the driving reason behind the City Council’s move to revisit the total ban.
"We conclude that the provision in the ordinance that classifies the cultivation of medical marijuana as a misdemeanor is preempted by California’s extensive statutory scheme addressing crimes, defenses and immunities relating to marijuana. Among other things, the attempt to criminalize possession and cultivation is not consistent with the obligation [Health and Safety Code] section 11362.71, subdivision (e) imposes on local officials not to arrest certain persons possessing or cultivating marijuana."
