(NBC News)   Dude, based on current market projections and my company's P/E ratio I'm TOTALLY getting a dividend. Are you going to eat that hot dog?   (nbcnews.com) divider line 13

Hehe. I started looking at investment opportunities into this as soon as Miracle Gro announced they were going to start marketing to it. It's not the pot people you want to invest in. It's all the supply companies behind it that you want.

When the demographics and opinion polls are moving so quickly in one direction on an issue the politicians would be idiotic to not re-evaluate their positions in light of these changes.... wait a minute.... what would happen if a significant number of politicians were utterly tone deaf... it might take decades to work this out.  Good thing we don't have any political parties like that...

I would assume that the economies of scale from large commercial growers would take a bite out of Miracle Gro's profits because 1) commercial growers will maximize their efficient use of the product and 2) because commercial growers will negotiate lower B2B rather than comparatively higher retail prices.

If anything, you want smaller growers buying at retail, overusing, and frequently abandoning without fully consuming your product.

Ah, but in the short term, there aren't going to be any appreciable commercial growers. The way the laws are being written initially, states are limiting growers to a small number of plants.

Now, once Agribusiness sees how the Feds react, then expect a ton of lobbyist money to flow in, so the laws can be changed to allow factory farming. But until that point, the profit potential really is in the boutique grower, because that's all that's legal.

Just a reminder:  If you want to destroy anything great or even good for that matter, commercialize it American style.

That weed looks BUNK!

Yes, because when I see pictures of Mexican Cartels beheading people or nefarious, polluting, unscrupulous growers in the Emerald Triangle,  I think "What a beautiful industry, I sure hope they don't commercialize it and tarnish it with oversight and regulation".

I know, right?  My grandfather tells me about how much better bathtub gin was compared to the corporate swill we get now.

You'll get a dividend if the finance office authorizes one, citizen. Better own that stock before the ex-date.

Only a Texan would think Mexico when thinking weed.

Yes, and growing weed is exactly like brewing alcohol....I know, right?

Go wave your corporate flags somewhere else. All two of you!

I dunno what you mean.  It looks like a typical outdoor hybrid fan leaf in the vegetative stage to me.   But you are right, they will ruin it.  What with the 'organic' et al movement of late they may not ruin it nearly as much as they want tho.

Also, all of this really depends on the next presidential election cycle since Obammy obviously isn't going to do the right thing.  I don't blame him though, who would want to be the black guy that legalized weed?

*sigh* It's times like this where I realize where the doofus illiterate stoner stereotype comes from.

I'm as big a liberal weirdo pot loving corporate Hater as the next guy... but I find the idea that corporate participation in the pot market will automatically and unequivocally ruin it to be laughable.

Local wines and freshly squeezed juices are fantastic. Doesn't mean a simple coke on ice on a hot summer day isn't occasionally just fine.

Yeah, they'll fark some shiat up, that's a given, but I'm also interested to see what a few tens of millions of r and d
can come up with. Let's face it - there are exceptions to be sure, but the vast majority of pot cookies/brownies suck.

It will be just like anything else ... there will be a cheap mass consumed corporate product  and then there will be a niche demand for a boutique product where a smaller clientele  are willing to pay premium prices for craftsmanship.  There will be enough demand for Jack Daniels and Dunkeld Atholl Brose to have a separate place in the market.    But the bottomline is that the public demand isn't going to be met in it's entirety by a bunch current little grow operations, nor have the current little grow operations proven that they're environmentally and socially responsible enough to deserve that kind of responsibility in the first place.
