They've been a "thing" for 5 years. Just like the the Silicon Valley revolution, you are late to the game...

Cannabis entrepreneurs have  long been "a thing".

Captain Horatio Mindblower: Cannabis entrepreneurs have  long been "a thing".


By the way, has the fad of saying that something "is a thing" almost passed? It's quite irritating.

We just had a huge convention in Denver. Massive amounts of venture capital, dozens of large-scale startups vying for their spot in the exploding industry. Yup, it's a "thing".

So we need a fancy name for dealers now?? I was fine with calling the janitor a "custodian", but not everyone gets a classy title.

FTFA: "if Florida voters approve Amendment 2 in November"

I haven't seen any reputable polls about this passing (e.g. "likely voters" etc.)

Here is a recent story:
http://www.sunshinestatenews.com/story/medical-marijuana-divides-flo ri da-dem-power-brokers
 Medical Marijuana Divides Florida Dem Power Brokers


John Morgan, sponsor of A2 and major fundraiser for Democrats is obviously for it.

Former Gov. Charlie Crist, the front-runner for the Democratic Gov nomination  has recently worked for Morgan.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, is against it.

An entrepreneur? Involved in what we almost all acknowledge will be a legal industry in less than a decade? You don't say...

//I'd call that "getting in the game early"
 
2014-06-07 07:42:52 PM
Soon my State will see
Medical Marijuana
just one step closer

This is so stupid, how long will it be till this country ends this shell game and just farking just make it legal for everybody. It is the 1920's all over again!

I'm going back to school this fall, to finish my degree in horticulture. When my advising counselor asked "why horticulture?", I brought up this point. A whole new industry is opening up, and it will need educated workers. Cannabis isn't my particular interest, but it will attract grads that would otherwise be competing for jobs elsewhere. She was a little aghast when I first mentioned it, but I had her rolling when I concluded with "it's a field with a lot of potential for growth, if you'll pardon the puns!"

We used to just call them pot dealers

now they operate legally and pay taxes on what they sell. that makes it different.

that makes them pharmaceutical representatives....

HA!  yeah... sorry... I know *snicker* its open ended rec use.. these folks are just... selling pot!

if I may offer a perspective from the world of craft beer?

everybody and their asshole brother is making the shiat.. making the shiat is easy, and everyone thinks thier shiat is special.. but it aint.. and pretty soon the market will correct itself to weed out (snert) the chaff, and the best way to make money off the movement is to support the movement.. I'd rather sell bongs and the assorted supplies than the product, and barring that, I would sell the products that are used to grow the target product in question.. in both instances, the end product of my business is interchangeable to other "legitimate" operations.

long story short.. I would capitalize on the pot economy by selling hydro supplies.

Duh. How can you hope to feed the bottomless law enforcement industry pig without arresting thousands of low-level pot dealers?

Not a bad fallback degree even if legalization doesn't happen, and lol on the puns...

Someone's bound to know this - in Colorado, is growing-your-own legalised and what are the tax implications? I'm Australian, where I live it's illegal for me to grow tobacco I'm pretty sure, because of the tax, but I can home-brew beer and save good money on the relatively high alcohol tax we have here.

Hydro supplies are legal and are sold, so folk can grow "tomatoes" here, but it might be a bad time to be building a business around this in places where weed is legal cos it's only a matter of time before the weed industry lobbyists encourage the government to shut them down for tax revenue reasons plus their own self-interest.

/weed industry lobbyists used to be cool, man

Crist has already stated he supports medical marijuana.

Wasserman Schultz has always been a tool so her stance isn't surprising.
