    For me and so many of my young friends (all of whom don't even smoke it) this was also much bigger than the election itself.

    And that is the critical part in this. I don't like the idea of legalizing possession WITHOUT legalizing its cultivation and distribution. That would just mean money continuing to go in the pockets of murderers.

    True. And weed won't ever be priced like the finest of wines.

    My point is an expert grower turns out smoke of clear superiority to what the average person could grow. Superiority that commamds a premium.

    At the time, Medical marijuana laws seemed like the compassionate compromise, but they ended up spawning this cottage industry of doctors who will write notes and distributors -- better to make it legal for personal use and regulate like alcohol. As I researched marijuana addiction and negative effects, they are relatively moderate compared to drinking and smoking. And the addiction doesn't seem to be chemical like alcohol, tobacco, and opiates.

    Has anyone heard how initial talks with Colorado and DEA / DOJ have been going?

    I think the Medical Marijuana laws led to people wanting to smoke pot getting a note from a doctor, which increased demand on the product, which led to behaviors not sanctioned or intended by the law.

    Colorado also previously enacted medical marijuana but, for some reason, didn't have much of a problem from the feds. Maybe the feds just don't like Cali, eh?
