Quotes

...Alan Smith, President of Mountain High Acquisitions Corp.  "His years of leading scientific research and cannabis advocacy have earned him a reputation as a vital industry source of knowledge, opinion, industry contacts, and inspiration. As our new Scientific Advisor, we are confident that he will be instrumental in helping us achieve our corporate objectives. In particular, his advice will be invaluable as we provide additional complementary services to current and future cannabis growing tenants and strategically develop our properties for use by the cannabis industry."
...There is a unique twist on the caregiver job title contained within the Bill: "the Commission shall encourage licensing medical marijuana growers that grow strains of marijuana with a demonstrated success in alleviating symptoms of specific diseases or conditions."
"We're asking to allow Minnesotans the freedom that citizens of 20 other states and the District of Columbia now have," said Dibble. "And we're asking in the name of compassion to have access to something that has made a real difference for the better in their lives. The alternative is that they go without, and continue to endure those treatments that are available to them through pharmaceuticals -- or operate outside of the law at great personal risk, and in so doing support (a) criminal system.” Tags"
Rand said the legislators deserve credit for "taking the time to look critically at the issue and for listening to constituents. I think [legislators] listened to some of the things we said about patient access."
