Footnote 16 On Tuesday, April 18, 2017 I sent Alex Gentry this message on Facebook to verify the data in this chart was correct.

Alex Gentry's only response was the all the Safer Arizona victimless marijuana crimes were misdemeanors, not felonies.

He said he had other issues with the chart, but has not responded to me on those other issues.

Hey Alex:

I did a comparison of the Safer Arizona 2018 initiative to legalize marijuana vs the RAD 2018 initiative to legalize marijuana.

Could you look at it and verify that I didn't make any mistakes?

Thanks
Footnote 17 On Thursday, April 20, 2017 I sent Tom Dean this message on Facebook to verify the data in this chart was correct.

Tom Dean never responded to my Facebook message so I will assume the information is correct.

I will be sending out a bunch of press releases next week and don't want to give any incorrect information about the Safer Arizona initiative.

Thanks

Footnote 18 On Tuesday, April 25, 2017 I sent Tom Dean this e-mail to verify the data in this chart was correct.

All 3 of the emails addresses bounced so I guess Tom Dean no longer has an e-mail account.

Subject: Questions about Safer Arizona initiative to legalize marijuana
Hey Tom:

I created a chart comparing the RAD initiative to legalize marijuana which I wrote to the Safer Arizona initiative which we both wrote.

Could you take a look at it to make sure it is accurate.

http://relegalize.100webspace.net/radVSsafer.html
I will be sending out some press releases saying people should support the RAD initiative and reject the Safer Arizona initiative and I don't want to accidently say anything incorrect about the Safer Arizona initiative.

Thanks

Mickey/Mike
