    Yes they will just either become illegal, limited to medical marijuana, or can only supply this new entity. I would assume anyways.

    Ontario has already failed, hopefully the other provinces don't follow.
    Medical growers in Los Angeles are actively working to control the market by locking out new competition, too. We'll see how the rest of California does.

    Turns out marijuana businessmen are in it for the money. Whodathunkit?

    If enough people do that the black market could make the government smarten up their distribution scheme.
    um, once the law changes, I will discuss this more with you. Let's just say I have plans...

    That's the main reason I want it legalized, I want to get in early and become a robber baron of weed. Set up a dynasty and a brand, the whole nine.

    I wish you well, but you're too late to be early, and there's going to be a LOT of competition, at least for a while. The home grow market will also be booming.

    Also, there's really no natural reason for weed to cost much more than high end roses. A significant amount of the profit comes from it being illegal.

    Once a grower can call the cops if his weed gets stolen, and can market and ship products openly, the only thing keeping it expensive will be the sin taxes, and the seller doesn't get to keep that.

    Don't get me wrong, demand is massive and there's fortunes to be made.

    Something doesn't have to be expensive to be profitable. That's while I'll be a robber baron. I won't be making a profit off the sales. You have to understand, it's hard starting up a successful shop of any kind. Whether it's weed, or dildos. It's much easier to find one that's already started, already successful, buy it, and then buy a bunch of property all over the country and then license the franchise rights to the successful shop with the stipulation they have to rent the land their shops sits on from me.

    All I have to do is have one or two profitable stores, that I don't even have to start or deal with the bull**** on. Market the hell out of that shop, and offer franchise licenses to investors from across the country. All without growing or selling a plant myself. It's more intricate and complicated than that, but that's the general gist of it.
