I have always been pro legalization, who wouldn’t, Cannabis is safer than thumb tack. Especially when compared to all those pharmaceutical concoctions that kill millions every year.
So the idea of continuing the federal ban on pot seems outrageous. Currently, the DEA have marijuana in the same drug scheduling class as LSD and Heroin.
And we all know that’s absolute nonsense, so why should pot stay illegal?
Because they will ruin it!
It’s just that simple, once the federal government along with big corporations get involve. If marijuana is legal on a federate level, large corporations will be able to produce and distribute across state boarders.
The only reason they are not involved is because of the limited potential. They can only produce and sell on a state by state level. Not to mention that any money made would be seized.
Although for most this might not seem like a big deal. But if you’re a big company that makes millions of dollars monthly, it’s not appealing. If these restrictions where lifted the cannabis industry would be totally different.
Cannabis Business today
Today if you have an idea and live in a state that has legalized recreational cannabis, you can get in. The costs of getting started in cannabis is fairly low when compared to other industries.
Making it very easy for anyone with a few bucks to enter. Sure the legal paper work is a nightmare and the bureaucratic process can take months, but otherwise cheap.
There are also plenty of points for entry. The cannabis business has multiple levels, from manufacturing growing equipment, growing weed, retail sales, extracts and specialty products. The list goes on, as there as so many aspects and markets that being created every year.
The locked legal boarders also promote internal economic ecosystem. From the seed to the shelf, everything must stay within that state. Creating a demand for instate workers and more growth opportunity.
If the feds legalize pot
Lets say tomorrow, the feds decide to totally legalize marijuana. At first it would be amazing, no matter where in the US you are, you can get MMJ.
So whats the problem then?
Just like any other business that is run by big corporations, it would be ruined, I will give you and example.
Depending on your age, you may remember a time when food was food. You never had to look at the ingredients or second guess the ground beef in your burger.
Why do we have to today, because it’s ruined.
The dollar is king and every large corporation is making and taking as much as it can. Squeezing out the small guy by swallowing up competition. Large scale production can drop costs so low the little guy can’t compete.
We all know how much more money is produced in state sales tax, where legal. And so do all the big banks waiting on the sidelines.
Who are they?
Once the major corporate players get involved, it’s all done for. Think of it, GMO Ganja created and farmed by your pals at Monsantos.
International banking cartels shipping money they made legally, shipped across federal lines.
Mass production, mass distribution and massive control over every aspect of the cannabis business.
So long small startups, growers that love what they do and welcome McWeed’s.
