Iím sure one can buy lower quality dirt weed for $100-$200/oz on the street, but any hydro, sinsemilla, hybrid stuff, like what is sold in the dispensaries, will be $400/oz or more.

Or so Iíve heard...

Just as questionable knock off cigarettes are available in most if not all flea markets, it will be available on street corners in the hood. However most law-abiding citizens won't buy tobacco in flea markets or weed on the street corner. So how to capitalize on the now legal in 8 states + DC for recording use, 22 states for medical use, and 15 states legalized THC?

This isn't a "will you use" question but how to invest one esp since there isn't enough available to meet demand? (Pipeline issue)

Good idea, I'll wait until I can buy into the Pot Index Fund at Vanguard, MJIDX....

Good time explaining to GS that you never buy stocks under $5 share as MFs cannot buy until that point, set (added: trailing ) stop losses, and jump out when more established firms compete (ex: GoPro)

Well, it's certainly not under $5 anymore. I guess I'm going to wait for a pullback. Too rich for my taste right now.

Do you trade penny stocks? (Under $5) I know someone IRL who does that but I'm too chicken. Nothing under $5 and no more than will negatively impact me should I lose 10%

Yes I trade

Also, there will be a sales trail from the legal pot shop to those who provide their product. A simple crack-down on the shops (as in taking away licenses) combined with huge legal growing operations will render most of illegal crops useless.


+1
See a lot more enforcement of the environmental laws now that the state has a vested interest.
Good to see these laws being enforced.

I'd rather invest in the seller of shovels and pack mules instead of the gold mine. Maybe buy Scotts Miracle Grow.

In the rush to make pot legal I've not seen a discussion of the negative health effects of its smoke. Cannabis is not free from the ill health effects of inhaled tobacco smoke, is it?

1st of all, it's not a 'rush.' It's been legal for medical reasons well over a decade, some states for 2 decades. Other stopped arrests almost that long ago. Some states had it legal for recreation use almost half a decade.

But yes, any inhaled smoke isn't good. Maybe we should limit it to a cooking ingredient? Like adding alcohol (wine or my famous beer cheese soup) to food? How should we enforce that?

Smoking anything isn't exactly healthy, but even my most toasty friends never approach the quantity of pot that the 20-60 cigarettes a day habits many cigarette smokers did with tobacco. But legalization has also opened up access to many other forms of taking in THC that were more difficult in the illegal world. Edibles, vaping, oils, dabs, etc. are all ways to get high without burning vegetable matter. And for that matter, there are plenty of products that can be said to be unhealthy that are used by people every day (alcohol, carbs, caffeine, sodas, etc.). The right to choose to do things that are bad for you is a divine right.

Just as a side comment, Vermont is in the process of becoming the first state to legalize recreational sales of pot through the legislative process as opposed to the initiative process. The governor will probably sign the bill into law in the next couple of days. That will make 9 states (plus DC) that have legalized pot. And according to the Marijuana Policy Project,
Quote:
"the Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Jersey, and Rhode Island legislatures are expected to seriously consider making marijuana legal for adults this year as well."
So I put in a buy order for CANN, although at a limit price a bit below where it is right now. Hopefully Jeff Sessions will say something obnoxious again and there will be a dip in the price. If not, que sera sera.

Many people don't smoke it. You can ingest it in many wonderful recepies; THC/CBDs are fat soluble and can be used in most recepies calling for fats.

If you don't like to eat it you can use the Sessions' treatment, 250mg suppositories! Yes, indeed you can stuff it up your.......!

Well...

I haven't personally tried these, but I'm going to.🤣

Here's a link and a snip.


https://www.hellomd.com/health-welln...-many-patients

When it comes to cannabis, you probably know that there are multiple ways you can consume it. You can ingest*tasty ediblesthat help with a whole host of symptoms, you can utilize topical cannabis oils for aches and pains, you can drink*cannabis tea, or, of course, you can inhale it. But what about the butt?

While it may make you blush just a bit, rectal marijuana administration has many distinct benefits and it's gaining popularity among cannabis users everywhere. Thanks to the effective nature of rectal cannabis combined with its easy administration and vast health benefits, I personally believe the use of cannabis suppositories is one of the best medical marijuana administration options available to patients today. Here's what you need to know about this seemingly funny form of cannabis:

Top 5 Marijuana Cryptocurrencies

"Cryptocurrencies are making it easy for people in the marijuana business--or simply those who are looking to buy some weed--to carry out transactions. Remember, marijuana is still illegal at the federal level, which poses a variety of challenges for anyone attempting to conduct financial transactions even in states that have legalized pot. While Bitcoin has become widely popular, there a few alternative cryptocurrencies just for the pot sector."

Based on the ingestion and, umm, digestion approaches, I gather the smoke is a health concern. Pot's portrayal in current media is an interesting contrast with that of tobacco.
