My millions of avid readers will be overjoyed to know that my marijuana crop is bigger and better than ever this year. It may be the last one depending on how the vote goes in November here in California. There’s several initiatives on the ballot involving The Weed, and one of them is to legalize it for recreational use, so that big money conglomerates can take over the production of it and make fortunes instead of it supporting little Mom and Pop operations like it does now, and the state can tax the living shit out of it. And us.
Of course, this would put an end to Medical Marijuana, since no one would have to get some lying hack of a doctor to swear that you need to smoke it for some fictitious medical condition, after talking to him for 3 minutes over an Internet video connection. You then pay $40 and voila, you’re a card-carrying person with a medical problem that requires the smoking of pot. The State takes a nice portion of that $40 but taxing it will make the state $billions instead of $millions.
I voted against it, absentee ballot, but even if we all do it doesn’t matter. We aren’t the ones who count the votes, and if they want it passed, no doubt it will be passed, and there goes my profit incentive. The price is low now with the medical pot laws and will go down a lot more when 1000′s of acres are planted and importing it from Mexico becomes legal. Which it will. Of course. I mean, if it becomes legal here to buy like liquor, hey, we import Mexican beer and liquor, lots of it.
So another weird chapter in the history of California is about to end, while an even wilder one begins. Everyone is going to grow the stuff everywhere and then what will the Mega-Pot-Farmers do about that, as their profits disappear for lack of sales? New laws, new restrictions, new crazy bullshit, oh what fun lies ahead.
