I have seen that sign being waved and the one on the north Beeline at Forest for a cell phone service. Also the one at Main Street and Beeline for a restaurant. i personally do not like to see them and feel that they are a distraction. I feel that if a business has to resort to that maybe they are not doing so great financially. Surely that can not be the case for the Medical Marijuana Dispensary. I too wonder what happened to the sign ordinance or the committee. i do know that they are not supposed to put any type of sign on the Right of Way for the State and ADOT personnel will remove any signs from their right of way. i have seen them taking down Yard Sale signs and others. so if all of these sign wavers are standing on the sidewalks or on the State Right of Way do they have permission to do so?
Tom: Unfortunately I think they will okay the use of force. My son has been in the Army for 18+ years. He has been to Iraq twice, Afghanistan twice and I for one hate to see us get involved in another "endless" war.
As for John McCain I also agree he is going against the beliefs of the people who voted for him. Perhaps it is time for him to step down from his elected office and someone can replace him that will defend the citizens of Arizona when it comes to our borders and the issue of illegal immigration. If he doesn't then his blinders must be really thick!
I had not heard that. I wonder if somewhere in the law there is a stipulation that a Dr. can not give out recommendations in a normal office setting and it has to be done in a different location. More research.
Mr. Hinshaw: I am in no way a cold-hearted or uncaring person. I lost my father and mother and 4 other immediate family members to cancer. Their suffering was tremendous and at the time Marijuana was not legal. Whether any of them would have accepted it would have been anyone's guess but that point is not even a viable discussion now. I am sorry for your wife's pain and suffering. I was simply wondering why so many business came into being so quickly with the opening of the dispensary and if they were all considered non-profit. I have been unable to find out for sure but as far as I can tell the dispensary does not contribute to sales tax. No one knows the answer or they are not willing to share it. Mrs. Randall was simply asking if the person who opened the Medical Marijuana Card place was legal and licensed to do so. It is my understanding that only a licensed physician with credentials to issue cards can do so. not just anyone who sets up shop. If I am wrong I would appreciate being told that. As for Mr. Hamric it seems he has been in the EMS community and they have to deal with the uses of illegal/legal substances and their effects not only on the users/abusers but to many innocents as well.
I agree with you Ronald. Just can not even fathom how they got the status non-Profit no matter what they say or do.
I have seen the sign for the Medical Marijuana cards also. I was shocked that it went up so fast. There are actually several other local businesses that have come into being because of it being legal. Just think what people think when they are passing through town now? Seeing signs with the advertisements. It is a lucrative business that undoubtedly supports other businesses albeit Non-Profit. Are they all non-profit I wonder?
Mr. Naughton: thank you!. I do not mean to sound as if I am against the University/college coming to our town. The sales tax will be greatly welcomed to improve our economy. i am one of the people who just like to research the facts and try and post correct comments and answers on here. I appreciate this forum and the people who post on here. A lot of information is brought to light.
Mr. Naughton: If you are referring to me, I do not need to perform any "magic". I have gone through the Arizona Revised Statutes and found answers that I was looking for. Also it is extremely difficult to get anything out of the Town. They are not "user friendly" especially when one questions what they are doing and why! They will not give clear or concise answers. I have other sources that I rely on that are extremely reliable and knowledgeable.
Mr. Naughton": So it will be an "Island" within the Town? What taxes will be collected on the site? Perhaps in the bookstores and food courts that are on the campuses of many universities? So my question is this then. If taxes collected on this site benefit only the site how will that help out the Town of Payson since the sales tax revenue is down so much? I knew that it was property of the Forest Service before.
I have looked at this site and while I see Su Connell's name on the site as she serves on one of the volunteer committees I do not see Mayor Evan's name or picture associated with RCEA. Is he not involved with the the whole process other than being the Mayor of Payson? Not being negative in any way I am just wondering since he does a lot of speaking about the college and the plans. Also I would have one other question: As mentioned in Paragraph 1, 2 and 3 the Town has no authority or control over it who will be doing the inspections and such on the buildings once they have plans sent in for approval. Will it be under the control of the County or State? Also another about the tax base mentioned in Paragraph 2. Will they be able to set taxes without an election? This will ultimately affect all property owners in the area or at least I would think it would.
