My Orange County FL "county mayor" feels like she has a gun held to her head (her words, paraphrasing). For FL, it's only medical marijuana and it's very tightly restricted. Our counties and towns just have to adopt similar rules to pharmacies.
I think it's BS. I think our county mayor simply doesn't want MMJ, and she's too cowardly to come out and say this.
Among Central Florida cities, only Oviedo is moving forward with an ordinance allowing dispensaries. Orlando has declared its two dispensaries on North Orange Avenue to have been grandfathered in, a strategy county attorney Whitney Evers called a somewhat risky position to take.
Speaking before the commission, state Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith, D-Orlando, described the Legislatures rules as a trap to share the blame with local governments. It muddies the water further and voters just blame everyone. But I fear theyre going to blame you.
Jacobs partially agreed with Smith, saying the law puts local governments between a rock and a hard place, and Im really just trying to understand why. To say, If you dont like it, just ban it? That is not a situation I ever remember being in.
I don't get why this is so f******g difficult. Granted, I'm not a lawyer. Can someone enlighten me as to legitimate reasons why this is hard for counties to implement ? Our county mayor feels like a gun has been to held to the commission's head (her words, paraphrased). Come on damnit, just tweak the rules for pharmacies to rationally fit the dispensaries, job done.

Heathrow Airports secret security planning has been revealed in files on a memory stick found in a London street.
The documents outline routes and safeguards for the Queen, foreign dignitaries and top politicians using Britains busiest airport. The USB drive also includes maps showing where CCTV cameras are located, and escape routes for the Heathrow Express railway serving the airport.
Other files describe the ultrasound detection system for protecting the perimeter fence and the runways, and detail the ID requirements for accessing every area of the airport.
A man found the memory stick in Ilbert Street, London W10, just 10 miles from Heathrow. Several days later, he took the device to his local library and studied the contents. When he realised the security implications, he approached the Sunday Mirror.
Oh boy, not good at all!
