I am sorry they are going to test the resolve of us here in Hollister. Purple Cross is doomed to failure at least here in Hollister. As I have stated before, half of the people getting pot at these dispenseries are fakers, they have a bogus scrip to allow them to smoke, buy and cultivate legaly. I have evedence of that because I know several people that have gone through the process. Some of these Doctors will give a scrip to anyone. POT IS A ENTRY LEVEL DRUG!!! It almost always leads to further drug abuse, it is a fact. If pot is so helpfull to those in pain why not develope the extract (THC) and go through the clinical trials to get a real medicine on the shelfs for those poor people that really need it. Why?? Because all of the POT heads WANT TO SMOKE IT!!

The way the laws are set up, and the way Medical Cannabis Hemp is distributed it is a recipe for crime.
Down in L.A. it seems to be Russians are the ones controlling the dispensaries.
Where is this Hollister dispensary buying its marijuana?
Where is this Marijuana coming from and who is making the money sale-ing it to this Hollister dispensary?
Is this Marijuana tainted in some way?
These are only a few facet that the General public look over.
Why does the dispensary have security inside and outside the buildings?
Cannabis hemp is a drug, Why does this man who sales the drug not have some kind of medical back grown or a person who is professionally qualified to prepare and dispense medicinal drugs?
This POT SHOP is a wolf in Sheep clothing, Or like M. Hunt put it, "A Fox watching the hen house,"
Hollister does not need this Drama, too much grey in the laws.

If you want people to think you are making a valid point, you should learn how to spell and write. Right now most people who read that think you are an idiot

I want to know why Jaime De La Cruz and his little friend Reb Monaco are trying to legalize dope locally.

Just another comodity folks it is allready happening ealsewhere. They want to legalize it for same reason everyone ealse does, Safe Access Now! Huge tax revenue to be had and if I'm not mistaken both thoose guys have large land holding out in county right??? hummm wonder when we will stop fighting and accept it. Even the feds have gone on paper saying that if you are following all state guidelines and voter approved laws the feds are to leave you alone. Wake up guys everyone is doing it and it is a taxable, consumable, renewable comodity. As a "Patiant that can credit more than 100 lbs weight loss, quiting Alcohol abuse and taking more than 6 different traditional perscription drugs" Get it worked out set the tax system make some jobs and do it right!

I believe that BOB stated that marijuana was a "gateway drug" in his post above. If this is true, it can also be clearly stated that any form of alcohol is also a "gateway drug". Want to argue? Alcohol IS a drug, and you can find it just down around the corner at your nearby 7/11. There are some Walgreens & CVS pharmacies as well as all-night grocery stores that are open 24-7 where you can buy any kind of alcoholic beverage you could ever want. Think the alcohol lobby and industry on the whole wants to let pot dispensaries get a foothold? You don't think that they're worried about losing some business to recreational users in these difficult economic times? I don't think they want to see some of "their profits" going 'up in smoke'. Heavens. Then the government might need to subsidize and prop up THAT industry too. Oh dear. What to do. It's quite a problem.
