With medical marijuana now common, and outright legalization on the table, cannabis is a growth business. But would-be merchants face unique problems.

I am 41 years old have two children and work two full time jobs. I smoke every day and have for more than 20 years. I have tried other substances over the years, not because I wanted a better high or the pot wasn't doing it for me. I was just curious, been there done that over it. I have never been arrested, knock on wood, I couldn't tell you the last time I had a beverage with alcohol in it, because I don't really drink. That's me, there are other smokers that fit the typical profile of a pot head. That's all well and good. Maybe they are wasting their "life" in your opinion or enjoying it it others. But you know what they are not doing? They are not getting in a car and doing drivebys, they are not holding up banks to get money for a little weed. They are sitting on their couch watching South Park and eating Fritos. If that's what they want to do with their lives the so be it. But realistically, all those opposed to legalization or who see pot users through "Reefer Madness" colored glasses. Need to worry about themselves, Life is hard enough people no use in making it harder by holding court on others.
The feds should step up and at least agree.
I'ts time for Americans to tell these tight as--d Politicians to quit getting rich at the Peoples expense, and get their nose out of Medicine! I'm sick of old men telling women how to use thier Vaginas, and all of us what to do. As long as people aren't hurting anyone, what's the BIG Deal? WHAT THIS COUNTRY NEEDS ARE HONEST POLITICIANS, NOT THE PRESENT CROP OF HYPOCRITES.
It's ok for these fat cats to continue to mishandle the Peoples money, many of whom are addicted to cocaine, and allcohol, but we're not allowed to unwind and smoke a joint after a hards days work? This is Bulls--t! The biggest Criminals in the World can be found in the Halls of Americas Congress and Senate!
Growing pot is no vacation. It's hard work, diligence, intelligence and plain old getting dirty. I thought setting up a grow op in Colorado would be the answer of my financial woe's. Personally, I think it's easier to paint houses which is my profession.
I know many people involved in the MJ industry in Colorado and they work their butts off. There's still no free lunch and growing MJ is no vacation. JMHO smithoman nederland colorado
Truly amazing how healthy everyone is getting.
I am not a smoker, but frankly I think what ppl do to their own bodies is their business, whatever it may be with. If I were ever to get cancer, diabetes, or anxiety issues I would definitely start smoking. I know the benefits, but I don't need it so I don't use it. It should be the ppls choice however.
Your article is misleading at best. You may want to consult with dispensaries and such before reporting on the subject.
The 10th amendment allows States laws to supersede Federal, so as for the Federal gov't not to gain complete control and abuse it's power. Though the Feds are already abusing their power by raiding dispensaries and charging owners and workers and confiscating all their products....it's disgusting really.
Check out NJWeedman and his Jury nullification case in New Jersey... the word should be spread that this is an option. He's now in California and the Feds are on his **** yet again... abuse of power at it's worst.
It can also be quite economical to grow if you know how to do it with small space and with the least use of utilities as possible.
