    Congratulations, Ashland, on coming though with enlightenment on this issue! I was sincerely hoping Ashland would be the leader in these times of change, and you didn’t disappoint! Now if only the other backward little burgs of Jackson county will get on board with your stellar example, that will be a good day indeed….but I’m not holding my breath. ;o)

    Most of the mayors and city councils of these little towns are too steeped in their own reactionary stupidity to realize they’re missing out on a lot of tax revenue. The people want dispensaries, the councils are against them…so just *who* are these councils serving? What do they have to gain by denying the people legal access to their medicines? Perhaps they have interests in illegal trade….ya think?

    Why is this medicine being taxed? I could understand if it was designated as recreational use, but its not. If this medicine is taxed, why not tax other prescription drugs? Why is prescription marijuana treated differently? I can’t come up with one reason except it appears that this is a tax for the sole purpose of raising city revenue.
