San Jose Pot Club Referendum to Save Medical Marijuana Underway

Advocates State the Referendum Is the Only Way to Save San Jose Cannabis Clubs

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/27/14 -- Control & Regulate San Jose (CRSJ) announces a referendum is fully underway. Once again, San Jose Cannabis clubs are forced to qualify a referendum to stop the City of San Jose's unreasonable regulations. San Jose Cannabis clubs have done this before; in 2011 they gathered 38,000 signatures in less than 30 days. This time around clubs face a greater challenge, collecting signatures for two referendums simultaneously, with less than 20 days to collect over 33,000 signatures on both petitions.

"We know we can get this done," said Dave Hodges, Founder of the All American Cannabis Club and member of the Silicon Valley Cannabis Coalition (SVCC). "For many clubs this is a do-or-die situation, with no other option available. They couldn't be more motivated to make this happen."

San Jose's regulations require all concentrates, edibles and topicals be produced on-site, by the collective. Medical marijuana vendors statewide will not be allowed to provide any products to collectives in San Jose. Outdoor growing is banned as are medical marijuana patients ages 18 to 20 from working at, or even getting medication from, collectives.

Members of CRSJ will be descending on the HighTimes Cannabis Cup this weekend. They plan to ask every patient, dispensary, delivery service, grower, edible maker and concentrate producer for money and volunteers to save cannabis clubs.

"A referendum is the only option we have," said John Lee, director of the Silicon Valley Cannabis Coalition and CRSJ. "San Jose's regulations will put hundreds of people out of work and shift the sales of marijuana back to the black market. Virtually overnight new drug dealers will be opening up shop in residential neighborhoods."

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing and analyzing streaming data is the Lambda Architecture, represent...

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems.

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, explored HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.
