    If the American Dream is chasing them, I can’t wait to see what happens when it catches them !

    This particular American Dream that’s chasing them…it wouldn’t be manned by a couple of guys in white coats now would it?

    The ‘Bajillionaire’ part might be awkward, since legality sucks the ‘forbidden fruit’ flavor out of many things, just like in the ’20s and ’30s with (alcohol) Prohibition. It did corrupt police, courts, and politicians, just as now, and took a while to repair the damage. We should look forward to the same, if maybe streamlined by the experience.

    they’ll be in a high max security pen when they get “caught” by this American Dream. the Prison, Pharma, Police complex is chasing after them. and the money is endless. for the complex, not Z.

    legalization is not going to happen for a long, long, long, long, long time. .lol

    >> there will never be legalization…

    It’ll be interesting to see how the Feds respond to Colorado moving forward with its legalization. They seem to be sitting on the sidelines. Also, to see whether other states follow Colorado and Washington.

    Hemp (marijuana plant) was made illegal in the U.S. by the efforts of the powerful logging lobbyists back in 1937. Hemp was being touted as a cheap and renewable alternative fiber source to make rope and clothing.


    If logging slows way down, then hemp may look more attractive to the greedy businesses as a lucrative fiber source.

    I bet a deal is in the works for the tobacco companies to handle distribution, in exchange for finally giving up cigarettes.

    Jeeze, have any of you hemp touters actually used hemp products in any real quantity? Yes, hemp makes great ropes (though even there nylon and other synthetics have their advantages.) However, hemp is not a great substitute for cotton, hemp cloth being much more coarse. Hemp could be used for particleboards, but even there wood particleboards have an edge – and neither is a real substitute for a solid wood two-by-four (as many homeowners have discovered some time after the builders departed.)
    `
    Yes, the federal government imposing a “reefer madness” hemp tax in the 1930’s didn’t help the hemp industry (such as it was,) but I hold the fact that other products proved superior and/or cheaper to process had more to do with hemp falling out of favor.
