So...just like alcohol.  Once the market is saturated with distributors and producers, the price will come down.  At that point only the licensing, taxation, and regulatory aspects will remain expensive.

Pick: Funny, you don't need a license to grow potatoes. Look at how many pounds the average American eats. But , potatoes are cheap, compared to pot. Oh, I see now. It's all about the money, not the product. How did I not see that?


Did you think it was ever about anything else?

new_york_monty: mentallo69: funny in small doses its sold by the gram, in larger doses by the Oz. Why cant we just stick to the farking metric system already

Because weed is the way Americans are introduced to the metric system of masses. Want to find the stoners in a group? Ask out loud how many grams are in an eighth of an ounce. Just say in an 'eighth.' They'll know. So will the scientists, but the stoners will out themselves.


Also you can just ask someone if they smoke.

If their response is "Cigarettes?".

They smoke weed.

mama2tnt: thurstonxhowell: I, for one, would be willing to pay twice the current street value of weed if it meant being able to buy it in a shop without fear of arrest.

One of the monsters started buying and drinking alcohol because he can't afford what he prefers.
/I'm all for legalization, taxing, whatever, because if it were legal where we are, I'd farking buy it FOR him (and me) because I've always preferred it to alcohol's effects.
//But it has to be legal. I want all of us smokers and smoker-wanna-bes to stay out of prison.


The prison part isn't what I worry about, I want it to be legalized so that on the job drug tests and clearances no longer depend on if you had smoked it or not.

AbsentFriends: So, you pay tens of thousands of dollars for licensing, fees, video surveillance and whatnot. You establish your business. Then the feds come confiscate it all, because something, something, supremacy clause...


There are risks associated with every business. Remember the "we wouldn't have a deficit if they just taxed weed!" argument? Well, these are the taxes. Pay up and toke up.

ongbok: Try to get into the liquor store or bar business. I don't know about Colorado, but around here liquor licenses cost a mint. It seems that if you want to be in the business of selling mood altering products legally, it is going to cost to to get in.


Welcome to the world of legitimate business, kid.

So say your friend is in Colorado to start a pot business and you aren't.   Would investing in his business for a share of profits be legal?

Well, we said we could deal with regulation if they'd just call off the dogs, so don't start crying about it now. This is still a fair trade-off. If they keep biatching, remind them how much it costs to be a felon for selling pot.
