We know some of you "legalize-it" people have a bad reputation for being lazeabouts, so we're giving you plenty of notice about an upcoming pro-pot meeting.

The Medical Marijuana Town Hall Meeting takes place Friday from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Senior Citizens Center Southwest, located at 2201 W. McFadden Ave. in Santa Ana.

Yes, it's free. Sheesh.

Scheduled panelists include retired police Lt. Diane Goldstein, cannabis expert Ed Rosenthal and Michael Krawitz, a veterans advocate.

The event will be sponsored by the Committee to Support Medical Marijuana Ballot Initiative and Orange County NORML.

For those who want a bigger hit off the legislative bong, a group of patients and advocates are looking to introduce a voter initiative that would allow for the legal operation of a set amount of medical marijuana collectives in some parts of Santa Ana.

Santa Ana MMJ Initiative Forms Drug Cartel The medical marijuana dispensary initiative proposed for voter approval (Local Thur. May 10 pg. 5) is designed to benefit only the dispensaries. Only those dispensaries which are currently operating illegally in the City are initially permitted. The initiative forms a panel to control the pot trade in which dispensaries outnumber City officials 2 to 1. There is no limit to the number of dispensaries that the panel can authorize. There is no requirement that dispensaries be located only in ADA accessible buildings. There is no requirement that access be made available equally on a citywide basis. There is no enforcement mechanism for regulations that the panel may come up with. There is no representation provided on the panel for residents of Santa Ana. The Santa Ana Police Dept. is forbidden to contact Federal authorities in relation any drug activities of the dispensaries. The initiative does nothing to safeguard the residents of Santa Ana and does everything to ensure the profitable operations of selling marijuana for the dispensaries. It does nothing more than create a legalized drug cartel within the City of Santa Ana.

Is Rite Aid and CVS a drug cartel?  They definitely contain more dangerous drugs than any dispensary.  People have the right to choose natural medicine.  Quality medicine comes from dispensaries.  Studies have shown that dispensaries do not increase crime due to their security and cameras.  Would you rather see boarded up buildings and people selling low grade marijuana on the street?  No matter what happens marijuana stays.  If dispensaries close then the real cartels take over.
