A few days ago Illinois newly elected
"Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D) confirmed in his inaugural address on Monday that he plans to make good on a campaign promise to legalize marijuana."


Well, neighboring state Wisconsin is not about to let all that money head south.
"Medical marijuana gets a new push in Wisconsin" Right now it is just medical, but I think that is to just open the gates to recreational.

I've lived in this region on and off for many years. There has always been normal competition, the Packers and the Bears, getting workers from across the state lines, and even the fight for tourism dollars.
I can tell you the competition has never been this fierce. I'm not sure how it is in other states, but it is getting vicious!
It won't be long before all the midwest states legalize, we are losing too much money to Colorado! This also seems to be more than just
about legalizing marijuana, hemp etc. These states are struggling for workers and want to do anything to lure people here.

Colorado here.
Plenty to go around folks.
Just give it time.

This plant has more cash crop potential than corn. Rather than be competitive with our neighbors we should be racing against Canada.

I watched the news last night and the city of Hancock in the UP here was discussing recreational marijuana stores in their city. They tabled the store approval for now because it is federally illegal yet and jeopardizes an upcoming federal grant the city can get from one of the agencies. If the city votes to break a Federal law, they can not get some federal grants.

At least they have smart people running that city, someone actually checked. They just tabled the resolution till the Feds can change the laws governing this, I wonder how many other cities lost these Federal grants.

Here is an article that addresses that issue as seen by city officials. www.keweenawreport.com...

Jumping too quick can be bad for cities on things like this, using conservative tactics to review possible negative effects of actions is important.

"Medical"

As in regulated to keep the same dicks rich.

The same guys who are putting people in jail.

Tomato status or eff off.

Our disgusting politicians need to eff off to n korea.

-oh wait, it's legal there too

They were never within their rights to make it illegal and the lives they have wrecked with weed charges and records are a catastrophy.

These same guys want to regulate that should be in prison.

F lorida is the alcohol state. The cops/gov somehow got a casino to bankrole the anti weed campain back when it lost by "like 2 votes".

Legal in Michigan now.

Come spring we'll be planting 500 acres of hemp.

They should just legalize it. However, the one issue that no one talks about is dealing with people under the influence.

Alcohol is legal, but you just can't drive around sipping on a brew or even walking around in public. I know I can barely go outside now without smelling that skunky weed smell.

In fact, I say decriminalize all drugs. It would free up the cash we waste on enforcement and I rather direct that money to rehab type programs.

I also think prostitution should be legal.

The amount of money we piss away on enforcing things like drugs and prostitution is absurd. Two adults agree to exchange money for sex, people get arrested. However, if they film it and show the world, it is legal pornography! You buy a chick a lobster dinner and she gives you some brain in return, it is called a date. GTFOH.

I totally agree. I lived in a country where both were legal and it wasn't a problem.
I actually think a lot of Americans feel the same way that we do. Legalize it all. People who are going to do it will,
people that don't care won't.

It brings in money right now because it's new to legalization. What are the long term effects? I am not talking about health. My belief is that it will eventually be legalized everywhere. There will be a downward pressure on the price. It will stabilize at a much lower point. Price will be largely a function of all the taxes like alcohol is today.

Money will still be made but it won't be the windfall it is today. The price today is only so high because it was illegal.

I have a dear friend that is a hemp farmer.
Lots of work! Wisconsin was the world producer of hemp at the turn of the century, i'm sure it'll do fantastic in
Michigan too.

I totally agree with this! I think Colorado was smart and cashed in early. They have seen huge tourism and migration due to that fact. I wonder if it will reverse once many more states catch on.
