Here are our thoughts on what's happening now...

  1. This bill benefits large out of state businesses, not native small businesses in the state of Mississippi. They are wanting to share the stake and partner with Arkansas and that means the money will not stay in Mississippi.

  2. The original 500 feet setback from public or private schools, churches, and daycares will be changed to 2,000 and will make it very difficult to find real estate in many smaller Mississippi towns.

  3. This Bill states that there may be only one dispensary per county which is unrealistic.

  4. There is an extremely high and non-refundable application fee of ($100,000.00) for cultivation-processing facilities.

  5. The taxes would be 10% instead of the original 7% which is unconstitutional under Initiative 65.

  6. This bill mentions pharmacies in addition to dispensaries a lot, but the federal law prohibits pharmacies from dispensing medical marijuana so not sure how they are thinking they will coincide.

  7. The referral system makes no sense.

  8. Limiting which dispensaries a patient can go to is ridiculous. If the state sets up an effective tracking system it shouldn’t be an issue.

  9. The bill is a direct attack on free enterprise ( free market). It is making it impossible for small businesses and entrepreneurs to participate and succeed. This bill clearly favors a certain tax bracket and intends to keep the money there.

  10. The 15 board committee is an issue too. It should be on a vote in system. We need to prevent collusion and this is not the way to do it.

  11. This system is not made to help the people. In my opinion it is a shined up version of 65A. 74% of the people of Mississippi chose Initiative 65 over 65A for a reason. It’s like the government refuses to lose, but again the people chose I65.

  6. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple
    ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just
    so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had to
    share it with someone! asmr 0mniartist

    Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed
    to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of.

    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that
    they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top
    and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a
    signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks 0mniartist asmr

  8. Wow, wonderful blog format! How long have you been running a blog for?
    you make running a blog glance easy. The total look of your web
    site is great, as neatly as the content material!
