Ah, Mesa you've done it again. Tsk Tsk. Over reacting as good Republican God Fearing Mormons should. Or is that Morons?
Think about it. If you were to say, place a Circle K in the industrial zones, how long do you think it would be before there were robberies and assaults?
No one in their right mind would have anything to do with those ares after dark.
Or is that your goal? Structure the Pot Shop locations so they would be dawn t dusk operation and restrict trade?
Isn't that also restraint of trade, which is illegal?
You are also missing an oppourtunity to create revenuie.Pot heads are notorious impulse shoppers.
Locate a dispensaery in a mini mall or even Fiesta Village and I'd wager revenue would grow, especially at the food court.
Mr. Sommers, if you find issue with Marijuana adds, take a look at the age group tobacco and alcohol continue to be marketed towards and see the entertainment there. An that's legal and has proven to cause more deaths than Marijuama.
Nice try Scotty.
P.S. I voted against Prop 203, formy own reasons.Dec 9, 2010
[thumbdown]What they didn't kill him? Another chance passed to lessthe excesspopulation. Darn!
Better luck next time.Nov 22, 2010
I'm not too surprised the current program is too well attended. The article says it right out front.... M-ON-E-Y.
And laziness on the part of the apartment owner/manager's part.
If the tenants can meet the rent every month with little or no hassle, why bother careing who lives there?
Can't expect the Police to educate the ignorant. But then they are expected to help when things go sour.
Heck of job they have. I'm glad they are willing to try.Aug 23, 2010
Once these "suspects" are no longer suspect and found guilty, they should be publicly executed on the spot.
No more of this nonsense of citizens paying taxes to house these freaks.

I can't say I blame them for going. My step son left for Alaska (not exactly abroad) to do something unrealted to teaching.
Poor pay, poor program funding,forced to work outside of class for free, over crowded classes,, kids that don't want to be in school, kids that have no respect for them selves or others, behaviour problems, no way to address behaviour problems,usupportive and inept administrators and parents and kids who think teachers are bacically baby sitters.
The few students who actually wanted to lear didn't stsnd a chance against that nonsense.
Add to that verbal and the threat of physical abuse, and it's no wonder teachers are opting out.
In short, he wasted his educatin and idealism on a school system that does little more than house kids for eight hours a day (if they stay that long) and offer an education of sorts to the few willing to apply them selves.
Just another chapter in what is the lagacy of what it means to live in Arizona.
Should have left it a desert.

Why is it no surprise that two sentences into this article , I was not surprised to find a "hispainc" name mentioned right off.?Jul 27, 2010
Az Lawyer, Take your bleeding heart and leave with the wetbcks! The immigrants you dare compare them to were hated and abused yes. However like most of your ilk you choose to ignore the fact that those immigrants came here legaly and worked for what they recieved.
They didn't sneake here in the dead of night, destroy our neighborhoods and cause crime in general to rise.
Being a lawyer, speaking in half truths, lies and editing phrases, come natural to bleeding hearts. But you know that already.
I have no sympathey for the "poor latinos". They broke a basic law they get what they deserve.Jul 25, 2010
I agree with brainfeeze.
Catering to and employing illegals is a big part of the reason so many are here.
If we didn't have the jobs they would go elswhere.
We become so lazy and complacent and reliant on these
untermensch, many of us and certainly most of our children won't do the work they do at any price. And by the way do you know the going rate for backhoe operator.
Nice money and not that hard of job
So my message is is: Get your kids off their I-pod addicted butts, and stop employing illegals.
Above all don't feel sorry for them when they leave to go elshwere. Cheer them on and remind them that "home" is South not any other direction.Jul 24, 2010
