So many major medical companies don't like it because they'll lose money

I don't see how the picture is anti pot though, seems pro pot to me

Still waiting for the anti alcohol ads since alcohol is a drug

It really amazes me too.

I always ask the hoes on tinder if they like to party, and most of the say something along the lines of "I drink but I never do drugs" at this point I get in a heated debate with them that never ends in me getting pvssy, but does end in me getting my point across.

ive done a lot of drugs and when alcohol is abused heavily it is far more intense then the other illegal ones lol.

I enjoy drinking in moderation though. Alcohol is a very social drug.

I made this point in another thread and someone tried to shut me down on the point that major corporations will get a hold of the pot market. I guess time will tell.

There argument was that it cost to much for them to produce marijuana on a large enough scale for them to be profitable. I believe it may have been F2B to be honest.

If it's legal just put a plant or two in your house, that's my game plan, free smoke!

We have medical marijuana here. Price depends on who you know. So about 200-250 per ounce of high grade stuff I'd say. Used to be 300+ before we voted in medical.

Lets just say, that if I even get a whiff of the feds making pot legal (to grow as well as smoke) I will be investing some serious coin in Philip Morris.

Are you looking at the pic as a pot user or pot seller?

What they're trying to imply is that people may think legal pot will be grown/sold by hippie dudes in their backyard. That sounds local, sustainable, agrarian, hobbyist organic, harmless. What they're trying to scare people with is the idea that legal pot will be sold by big bad corporations (someone drag Rhumb out of Poli and tell him he's missing a chance to bash GOP/corporations/1%ers up in here) that will put shareholders ROI above ethics, community health issues, environmental impact and so on. Basically what Big Tobacco is currently accused of doing.

I guess I can see where they were trying to go with it, I was looking at it as being a user. Still though, big corporations equals jobs for people, and why wouldn't you get a plant if it's legal, it's not exactly rocket science, although it does have a few more needs than your average tulip.
