Republican Sen. Jeff Essmann says the plan is being designed as a replacement law that would allow the Legislature to repeal the voter-approved 2004 medical marijuana initiative. I don't think that's what we are asking for, we don't want our initiative repealed, we want tighter legislation.

What is being considered?

"Regulations being discussed would do away with medical marijuana businesses, reduce the number of users and make it easier to police the industry."

Sounds like what we should have done first.
