<quoted text>Marketing? It really does depend on where one lives and what ones medical needs are.
Here the ACA exchanges offer different grades of coverage__but some may want to shell out more to opt completely,t choosing a private plan tailored to their personal needs/ailments etc..
As one for instance I've a friend who visits a dermatologist monthly for time consuming and very costly melanoma scans/inspections. There is no alternative__it's a must do. My friend doesn't need his medical care sent askew. Fortunately, beyond Medicare, he has a continuing plan through his former employer and a small military supplemental plan which he pays for.
again, if all your ailments are treated under the national health program, why would one need "better" insurance? what could possibly be better?

In other words, you've got nothing. I was not talking about dispensary owners. I'm was talking about people users.

When was the last time Federal prosecutors filed charges against someone for solely using medical marijuana for medical purposes? That's your point isn't it? It's against Federal law? McWilliams in 1997? Nope. He was charged with "collaborating in growing marijuana plants". Despite his use of marijuana, he was not charged with that offense. Know why? Because it was legal in California.

Richard Flor, of Montana, was not just a user. He was a marijuana provider. Same goes for Dale Schafer and his wife, Mollie Fry. They were convicted of conspiring to produce and distribute marijuana. Vernon Rylee? Guilty of cultivating over a thousand marijuana plants. Jerry Duval, convicted for marijuana distribution.

I know of no case where Federal prosecutors have gone after someone for using marijuana in compliance with state law....even though that law violates Federal law. Federal prosecutors have focused on marijuana warehouse grow operators and those who are in the business of selling marijuana and. guess what, those who run a marijuana trafficking business will continue to be targeted under the new guidelines.

I don't know who has Geico's advertising account but whoever they are, they are great.

BTW, it never ceases to amaze me how a good advertiser can transform a low-life scumbag company into a market darling. Mind-blowing.

I'm not saying that Geico is "a low-life scumbag company".

These right wing morons are becoming more frantic in their attack as the successful implementation of Obamacare becomes more obvious every day.
yep it just keeps getting better:Hawaii health-insurance exchange created in response to Obamacare has spent $100 million it received from Washington to fund 6,615 applicants – some of whom are still not even insured yet.
That represents $15,117 per applicant.
The state exchange has another $100 million to implement the program before depleting its grant from U.S. taxpayers, at which point the program is supposed to be self-sustaining through fees on local insurance companies.
Hawaii officials no longer see that as a possibility and are considering making the non-profit Hawaii Health Connector into a state agency subsidized by state taxpayers.
The model Hawaii officials had planned on was a minimum of 100,000 residents signing up for the program, that figure based on the number of uninsured. The 6,615 number includes small businesses and individuals. Most of those applicants have still not completed the paperwork to buy insurance. The applicants represent less than 1 percent of Hawaii’s 1.4 million residents.
“It’s not a good outlook for us,” said Sanjeev Bhagowalia, the state’s IT director.“The business model will not survive.”
An estimated $53 million was spent on HawaiiHealthConnector.com , which, Bhagowalia said, still has a number of glitches. Bhagowalia also worried the website is not secure enough to keep “very sophisticated foes” from obtaining confidential information from the site.
Rep. Bert Kobayashi said he was stunned to learn the connector has spent more than $10,000 per person registered on the site.
“That does not sound like it is even possible,” said Kobayashi, a Democrat who represents Kalaha and Kaimuki on Oahu.
A Watchdog.org analysis shows the exchange has actually spent $292,825 on each person who successfully signed up for insurance.
Other legislators were disappointed to hear state Insurance Commissioner Gordon Ito admit the exchange would not lower health-insurance rates in Hawaii.

For those people that want that then let them pay for it, that's how it works in other countries.
Health care. You loons don't even know what health is, how can you talk about care? Americans are the sickest, most medicated people in the world and you are begging for more care. WTH.

The wealthy can afford private care services that would likely be offered in these concierge type programs. There are doctors here who provide this here for a monthly fee.

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear an appeal from Arizona officials seeking to revive a state law that barred most abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. The justices offered no reasons for turning down the appeal, as is their custom.

Supporting the lower courts "core message..... women have a constitutional right to end their pregnancies before the fetus is viable.
