Cannabis is on the menu in America - so who will be the Starbucks of marijuana?

Picture the scene: it's been a long day, you're feeling a little wired and have some time to kill. You drop into Dutchie's, a popular chain café, and place your order: "I'll have a skinny Morroccan and a gluten-free hash brownie, please." And you sit down among the business suits and chill...

If that scenario sounds a bit trippy, then think again. It seems that high times lie ahead, and there are signs that industry is ever more hungrily eyeing up the cannabis market in the wake of decriminalisation in the United States. Rap artist-turned-entrepreneur Snoop Dogg announced this week that he is launching a marijuana-based media company, Merry Jane, providing news, information and entertainment about and for the rapidly expanding cannabis industry in the US.

Patients Continue To Buy Medical Marijuana From The Black Market In Minnesota Due To Cost

There is a trend in America right now when it comes to medical marijuana states. The newer the state, the stricter the program, which then translates to higher prices for medicine. These same states don’t allow patients to grow their own medicine, so patients either have to put up with being price gouged, or go to the black market. Most patients go the black market route. It’s not by choice, but at the end of the day these patients have to take risks and chances because they simply can’t afford to pay the high prices. Minnesota is one of those states. Per KOLO TV:

Some medical marijuana patients in Minnesota are heading back to the black market due to high costs in the state’s program.

Minnesota started selling medical marijuana pills and oils in July under one of the most restrictive laws in the country. The plant form is banned and people must have one of nine conditions to qualify.

Five patients told The Associated Press that the restrictions have made medical marijuana too expensive, and insurance doesn’t cover any of the costs. They reverted to buying marijuana on the street.

The article I linked to went on to say that a vial of cannabis oil in Minnesota is twice what it costs in Colorado, which from my experience is twice as much as it costs in Oregon. Oregon was the first to legalize medical marijuana out of those states, which further highlights the trend that I’m talking about. I get that it was big when Minnesota legalized medical marijuana, but the battle is far from over. The same is true in other states like Illinois and New Jersey. People need to keep fighting in those states to improve the programs. Patients lives depend on it.

Men's Wearhouse founder George Zimmer says he supports marijuana legalization

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Thu, September, 24th 2015 by THCFinder


“This is the biggest con that has been perpetrated on this country in the last century.”

George Zimmer, the founder of Men’s Wearhouse, was the keynote speaker at the Cannabis World Congress and Business Expo on Friday where he delivered a speech in favor of marijuana legalization, LAist reports.

His love of pot is well documented. He told CNBC that he has been smoking regularly for 50 years, joking, “As you can see, it’s really impacted me in a negative way.” The man has done pretty well for himself considering he’s worth $150 million.

Zimmer donated $50,000 to Proposition 19 in 2010, which would have legalized marijuana in California had it been approved. He has even considered investing in a marijuana-related startups, but decided against it when he realized that the IRS does not allow regular business deductions for dispensaries.
