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.

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.
