Making marijuana sales easier

January 31, 2014

It is a shame President Barack Obama does not have the same level of concern for most businesses that it does for those in the marijuana industry....

willygarr/canook/markhighwater,

I'm still waiting for math class.

If the following is true, I was ten when you started your tour in Vietnam. Do you honestly expect any of us to believe you talk like this, a person of your age and hopefully wisdom. If I was ten then you would have to be almost 80 now. It's hard to deceive for that long.

Started tour on May 15, 1968 at Bien Hoa Province, South Vietnam..My rank is Captain, Us Army. My MOS {training} is 4800D Maintenance Officer for Ordnance and Civil Affairs...Units served; A Co. Army Depot Long Binh Army S>P>T>, CMD Saigon, 1st LOG CMD, USARV... Medals: Purple Heart

Fair enough. Most religions attempt to define who God is, what is important to Him, what the future holds (according to Him), etc. That's why there are many sacred books, describing the Higher Power and detailing history with God.

I appreciate your answering my question.

HAetc, you'd have to explain to me what you think God is, as I have no frame of reference for you yet.

"Religion" is not a monolith either. Tenets of all religions should be examined thoroughly, firstly, to see if they hold up to the examination. (wink)

Monolithic politics again, HAetc?

Not all righties, or lefties for that matter, believe in God. We're all well aware that you (and willgrr) don't believe in God.

The word "sacred" implies there are some things that rise higher than the more commonplace things. For those who don't believe in God, what seems to rise higher are policies and philosophies, built without God.

Many religions regard a disbelief in God as foolish. Isn't it interesting that non-believers regard believers as foolish?

It's a Great Divide, isn't it?

It seems (again) nothing is sacred to lefties, except what they want to make sacred, like lefty politics, for example.

"Racism is the snobbery of the poor."

PJinfinity's uncredited source is Raymond Aron, who also said:

"Reality is always more conservative than ideology."

wiki: "(Mr. Aron) is best known for his 1955 book The Opium of the Intellectuals, the title of which inverts Karl Marx's claim that religion was the opium of the people – Aron argues that in post-war France, Marxism was the opium of intellectuals.

"In the book, Aron chastised French intellectuals for what he described as their harsh criticism of capitalism and democracy and their simultaneous defense of Marxist oppression, atrocities, and intolerance."

While alcohol users have a tendency to drive through stop signs, marijuana users tend to wait until the stop signs turn green.

I sticking with the fact that we live in a country that it is legal and morally OK to kill unborn children but for the sake of our country don't take a puff of marijuana. That is a huge discrepancy, it just don't make any sense to me.

For once I have to agree with President Obama. He has now set the precedent for states to feel free to ignore the over reaching, over regulating federal laws that encumber businesses and individuals.

I support the efforts to make marijuana sales easier. I also hope that Minnesota follows the examples of Colorado and Washington, so the Vikings can make it to the Super Bowl next year.

Abraham Lincoln, the original true real rock-ribbed dyed-in-the-wool Republican had this to say:

“Prohibition... goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes... A prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded.” ? Abraham Lincoln

If you are a good, tried and true, real Republican, follow your conscience and let it be your guide, not your pocketbook.

Prohibition laws are also bankrolling Mexican drug cartels, just like Al Capone was running 20,000 gallons of beer each day in Chicago and making 100 million dollars per year, the first US businessman to reach the mark. Prohibition does not work.

Follow the money.

How would the businesses involved in the sale of demon rum manage if they couldn't use the banking system?

Who is in charge of thinking up this nonsense about marijuana, its legalization, the income derived, and its effect on banking? They're asleep at the wheel.

It is maybe about Colorado and Washington State, but it is more a function of the stock market and publicly traded hemp and cannabis stocks.

The banking industry needs the go ahead so the ticker symbols on the stock exchanges can be traded without encumbering banking rules.

Besides, the Mexican drug cartels have no problems laundering their ill-gotten gains of money through big banks, if you haven't heard.

It is not about sales, it is about hemp/cannabis stocks and how to get them traded on the stock market.

They're some of the hottest stocks out there, for your information.

HEMP (tm) is a ticker symbol and its capitalized spelling is now a trademark and if you use the capitalized spelling of hemp and not recognize the company's intellectual property rights, it will be a violation of copyright law.

MDN should be happy. The Prez just gave the green light to grow all of that hemp you've been crying about not being able to grow.
