Only profitable to the Private Prison Industry, not America. I bet these same Big Private Corps hide money offshore while enjoying huge tax cuts Republicans always give them.

Private prisons...also:
insurance industries, medical industries, mental health industries, state law enforcement and social services, local law enforcement and social services, federal law enforcement and social services.

I'm sure I'm forgetting a few.

For the savy investor, there is an obscene amount of money to be made by investing green.
When wall st. gets involved, the congress is soon to follow. Just a matter of time with a yuggggeee federal tax on the back end for retailers, growers, everyone!! Now even the big dogs like Coke and Pepsi are sniffing around.

Sounds about right but also don’t forget actual criminal enterprises!

Yes, big corps honing on weed legalization isn’t my favorite part but they are the ones who lobby and spend ungodly amounts of money to get their way so if at the end of the day they are the catalyst for legalization then so be it.

Even if they weren't the beginning, they are the logical end.

Banks don't want to touch legal drug money because it is not as profitable as illegal drug money.

Cannabis is the new dotcom with startups everywhere with plans and designs. It's not just about the drug but all the
society that will revolve around it. Like the children and their phone/media streaming devices now.
The money swirling around this new cultural extravaganza is obscene. Eventually the shake out will favor the few
politically connected just like everything where money and profit is the SOP.

ATS is filled with rightwing partisan media hate but this just a tiny minority. The average American consumer is obsessed with being entertained and cannabis will play an increasing part in that milieu. Exciting times for those of us that operate in the realm words and images.

Content is KING...opportunities surround you! Don't be a moron, grab the brass ring and create something, join us.

We rarely see eye to eye on political issues.

This is a rare exception, maybe because it's more cultural/economic than political.

In my area, we are revitalizing from the end of the automobile area. Where there used to be block after block of manufacturing, eateries, storefronts and such reaping the rewards of local business, there are now bars, breweries and new eateries!

If this passes, we can add to that a cannabis trade that IMO will do very well.

So what are you going to do about it. America is entering a new cultural paradigm and I'm afraid that political conservatism will be washed away. Cannabis will play a large part in the new and open psychology of stopping the hate. I have been working with the GOP media machine, they aren't stupid, they see it coming.

btw...I'm not affected by your insults or the rest of your friends slurs. ATS is a resource for ideas and my bizarre form of entertainment. Half the stuff i say is just to keep the dog and pony show active, mostly riffin sarcastic word jazz.

Dollars to donuts Founders already has a recipe they're dying to brew up, pending the results of voting next week.

So long as it’s legal and I don’t have to worry about stumbling upon a dangerous marijuana dealer in an ally.


Hahaha

People still think like this?

That's hilarious

I might vote for Proposal 1. I've seen enough to know that marijuana isn't any worse than alcohol. For sure, there's no justification in treating it like coc aine or heroine.

I just wonder what all the potheads are going to do when it's finally legal. It seems the illegality of it has always been the biggest factor in its appeal. Maybe they'll be a huge rise in people sniffing spray paint and such?

BTW, I have no intention of ever smoking the stuff, legal or not. I just don't think that banning it is justified.

Here is a 5 page PDF file of the proposal.

Proposal PDF

It basically follows the Michigan Medical law guide lines. It allows for some generous taxation, licensing, and other municipal fees and such too.

The experiment seems to be working fairly well in the states where it is legalized. No rioting in the streets or rampant lawlessness. No drop-off in test scores because the precious children are too high to do well. No huge crowds clamoring for heroin or meth. Maybe it will be different with Michiganians, but there's only one way to find out...

More old people buying it to help with their sore feet. The coolness factor is pretty much gone.
