The gov could license grow ops for pharma like the opium in Tasmania. There is little supply for extracts globally now.
Could be good for tourism too.
Crazy to crack down on what could be a sunrise industry if handled well.

Some decent cashish to be made
Colorado collected upward of $247 million in taxes and fees revenue from marijuana sales, according to state finance data. The previous record was in 2016, when marijuana shops did $1.3 billion in sales. Sales were $996 million in 2015.

what a terrible waste. If this continues, prices are going to head north. It's already getting hard a.f to find a decent pizza.

The real problem is the Meth and Heroin flooding the country through the northern borders, so perhaps more emphasis should be put on drugs that are affecting society in a negative way? Just my two cents, I'm quite aware that I am a mere foreigner who has no influence here.

I reckon you two, Mark and JB, should go on a fishing trip together.
At least one of you would come back murdered.
