    Buyers market now my man. Expect some R&D early and often, the private market has taken over. Competition. I'm sure the prices will drive down soon. They need to compete with whatever street is still around. Bootleggers were around for a few after prohibition...that didn't last long. The market will adjust. The people will also see the comparison, doesn't take a rocket scientist to look at the pictures above and see a difference.
    They'll have to cater to a completely different gourmet market. Since they don't have any facility to smoke it in, it isn't Amsterdam. The best part of Amsterdam is getting high with other people from all over the world. People that are friendly and aren't looking for anything but some shared conversation. In a way, they remind me of a legal hooker without a room.

    Should be very interesting to see how this goes.

    Very pretty, but how does it fight...ooops... smoke ?

    R&D has been done by the Euros for decades.
    Slight variations on a couple major strains.
    Nothing new under the sun.
    I agree that the price will come down.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    I think the HUGE groundbreaking R&D has come out of Canada, Humboldt County Cali, and of course Amsterdam.


    Want to know something wild? I don't even smoke.

    If med school and my second amendment right wasn't on the line, I'd open a dispensary in .2 seconds.

    I do....occasionally.....over a year since I inhaled.
    This brandy eggnog is my current mind-altering substance.
    Your non-smoking knowledge is impressive.

    I know a few things about a few things for a few reasons. Divide by zero.


    I'm a cognac/absinthe/jager guy myself. I do love me brandy (well, all cognac is brandy, but not all brandy is cognac). What do you drink?

    the volume of threads posted alleging that legal pot in Colorado is a disaster is the best evidence that it isn't.

    Hennessy.
    Probably wasted in eggnog, but I like what I like.
    Absinthe, eh?
    I saw a guy on the Travel channel--The Thirsty Traveler--trying to get absinthe in Europe.
    It was illegal at the time, but legal nowadays, I think.
    Good luck with med. school......maybe you could give me a cannabis Rx?

    That's just the way of the world.
    Naysayers can't wait to...well...say "nay".

    Nothing wrong with Hennessy. +1 Nothing is wasted in eggnog. Eggnog is a divine drink worthy of Zeus, Odin, the Dark Lord Kramdar, and Elvis Aaron Presley.
    Absinthe is delicious.
    I'm shooting for a different direction, but if I go primary or something along the lines, I'll be a serious advocate for it, specifically in the department of oncology and general pain management. I'd rather see a country of high people with healthy appetites and enjoying life, pain-free, than people getting withdrawal symptoms because they are 30 minutes late on synthetic opiate dosage. Big Pharm pushes synthetics. Cost effectivity and ease of production, nothing more. If cannabis would produce as fast, efficient, and profitable...trust me...oxycontin would be a non-issue.

    This I like.
    Thinking outside the box.
    See you around, Doc.
