Fox40 airs first medical marijuana ad: a perfect business plan for a new legal industry!

Fox airs first medical marijuana ad

California is on the right track everything has failed and every State needs the revenue not just California. As you may know Oakland Approved Four Marijuana Factories advertising, this is the perfect next step, perfect business sense!

They also approved marijuana farming: OAKLAND, California (Reuters) - The city of Oakland, California legalized large-scale marijuana cultivation for medical use and will issue up to four permits for "industrial" cultivation starting next year.

Kill the growing drug violence on the Mexico US border, change the US forever, think about it! Legalize marijuana at least then follow with the rest, maybe! That would kill much of the incentive for Cartels to be waging a war on drugs. Yes there is cocaine heroine and other drugs but marijuana is America's number one cash crop! That blew me away.

According to official Government figures The value of the annual harvest exceeds that of corn, soybeans, or hay, the country's top three legal cash crops with an annual crop value of $35 Billion. There have been an estimated 100 million pot plants destroyed between 1981 and 2006 yet production has still increased 10 fold to 22 million pounds! Marijuana is the countries number one cash crop

While California, Tennessee, Kentucky, Hawaii, and Washington are the top producing states, pot is the top cash crop in 12 states and among the top three in 30 states. "There is a lot of demand for marijuana in the US, and it's only natural that production would increase here,"Marijuana is the countries number one cash crop, legalize it nation wide and collect the much needed taxes.

"This is a monumental step forward," Dale Gieringer, an Oakland resident and marijuana activist said. The measure, which pitted small and midsized "gardeners" against larger producers, initially allows the large farms to sell only to medical marijuana dispensaries Gettman told Drug War Chronicle. California is right to legalize it and capture the tax dollars. I just love it, imagine this country wide. This could reinvent America!

With our 100 year drug war and guns being purchased here and sent to Mexico then drugs being sent here feeding this drug war. This has not spilled over from Mexico it has spilled over from the US. I reiterate: eastern California, southern Arizona and New Mexico are clamping down and National Guard troops are being requested!

We keep hearing that Mexico's war on drugs is spilling over into the US. We have been fighting a self professed war on Drugs for one hundred years! I wish someone would be able to figure out at what cost. It seems to me that the drug war has spilled over the Border with Mexico. However it went north to south. It is our drug war that has spilled into Mexico. It is us that have made Mexico the narco State it is.

I do believe we should at least put American military on the border and do not really understand why it is not. That would go a long way in stopping the problem so I do not understand why they are not on the Border unless it is because a certain political interest still does not want the border secured to enable illegal immigration? Why else? A desire to keep this war going? For gain? of what?

I do believe we can end this! Put our National Guard on the Border in shifts! After I got out of the military I joined the reserves. I do not know how it works today because our troops are flat out. Besides one week end a month we use to be required to do 2 weeks as a unit somewhere to train. With 50 States they could all do their required 2 weeks on the border doing one thing or the other. The other half of the equation:

Legalize marijuana, follow California's example, secure the border! Just imagine what it would be if it was legalized. Regulate it like alcohol, sell it in package stores! Tax it! Look at the potential revenue. Legalizing marijuana would end a hell of a lot of problems and create exactly zero! Think about it!

The number one abused drug in the world is legal, Alcohol! It destroys numerous lives! What sane argument is there against legalization? None, none whatsoever! All we are doing with this insane war on drugs is driving people and not just kids to experiment and find a legal way to get high with common household products. We are only making the problem exponentially worse. END IT! LEGALIZE! All States!

The case the badges have against legalizing is the very same shit that has been used for decades. Complete bullshit but of course none are our side call them out for it.

Want the violence for the most part to go suddenly away-legalize it!

But we love the blood toooo much here to do that.

Tom I no longer indulge but I have friends in their late60's 70's and 80's that do. I will never understand how they get away with the stupid reasons for not legalizing it.

I disagree with the Government that pot is the gateway drug to drug use but it is the gateway drug to drug smuggling.

I have been there done that and survived, enough said!

we just seem to keep this war against pot going to satisfy selfish interests. When all is said and done there is nothing simple here and as long as we are alive I do not see this ever stopping!

Problem is if you get the price too high with taxes everybody would just grow their own.
An even greater drug problem is found in the medecine cabnet. Doesn't matter if you have a medical problem the doctor will find one for you. That may be what's wrong with congress. You think maybe they should all be drug tested?

an average patriot said...

Small and private growers are fighting it because it will hurt them and that is what I would expect. They would only keep the price down because they know people would grow their own or find an alternative supply.

I have a buddy from Mass who moved there in the 60s who is on the cusp of legalization there and they are pretty happy about developments.

Our legal system is over invested in the Drug War also.

With marijuana legalized, the justification for spending billions of dollars, on the human slaughter to fight the evil buzz demon, would spoon fade away.

Wease like our penchant to keep wars coming I came to the conclusion we do it to perpetuate an economy.
