mike_d85: untaken_name: mike_d85: Methinks he was telling a reporter how marijuana could turn into a raging Kuzu beast armed with pythons.

How would that NOT be a boon for Florida agriculture, though? If many new businesses open up to grow weed, and employ lots of people who are either not currently employed or are underemployed, that would be BAD for Florida? Wouldn't a massive explosion of new industry be good?

Because invasive species have a knack for annihilating Florida and the costs associated with allowing the pot to grow in open fields would be extreme (stopping it from spreading and stopping theft from fields).  The costs to grow it in indoor hydroponic greenhouses is much more practical for the public, but very costly to the farmer and would take a huge swath out of the farmers who are able to get licensed AND put up the capital to start farms.  Meaning only a handful of already well funded farmers would reap the profits of pot farming.  Which are thin because of upfront capital costs.

Failing to contain the pot would  saturate the market and create an uncontrollable supply of illegal, wild, untaxed, not profitable to anyone pot to the public.

He can't come right out and say it, but if you read between the lines you can flesh out his real concern. Everybody knows the ultimate liberal goal is a chicken in every pot, and if you legalize pot then you're gonna have a whole buttload of chickens on your hands and the fumes from all that chicken poop that close to children's recreational areas is bound to knock autism levels off the charts, and his state simply cannot afford to fund that much special needs education. So unless the federal government is willing to step up, reduce taxes on the wealthy and fund these soon-to-be necessary special education camps, well, not on his watch, he'll tell you that much.

Without nuclear power, Florida will be "virtually entirely dependent on natural gas." If a hurricane disrupts a transfer station on a gas pipeline "and it goes down for three days, we're in the dark. And that is a very vulnerable position to be in."

Nope, nothing could go wrong with a nuclear plant in the middle of a category 5 hurricane and mass flooding, no sirree bob!

My only problem is I'm pretty sure adult swim wouldn't exist except for weed so the whole thing is a toss up.

theorellior: Probably because there's no way Governor Voldemort could shunt some of that grow money to his wife or somehow bill Medicare for growing it.

Don't tarnish Voldemort's good name by comparing him to that creature.
