Since I posted last in this thread, I have noticed that some of my neighbors in my apartment complex who have medical marijuana cards are using it to get stoned, and there was been a bonanza of weed shops in my neighborhood. July is when recreational marijuana becomes legal in Washington state. I don't think I am going to like the results. As someone who has never tried marijuana and is not supposed to take it because I am on psychiatric medication, I look at my neighbors and wonder about how getting stoned on a regular basis impacts their lives.

I'd look at the decades of studies on the subject and worry more about your neighbours who are getting drunk every day, to be honest.

Was legalisation on the ballot in Missouri? Any info on how a vote would go?


Medical missed the ballot by about 20 signatures. It probably would have passed.

Was going to be Amendment 5. That's why they skipped for 4 to 6 on the ballot.

They turned in more than enough but after review by the SoS came up 20 short in CD2.

That's a shame, for all Missourians who don't want tons o' pills, anyway. Sorry to ask another complicated question, but does anyone know how early it could be put on another ballot / referendum / whatever?

I'm sure it will be on the 2018 ballot.

I have no interest whatsoever in toking up myself. But it really should be legal just so that the state can tax them and make money of of it. And it should remain illegal for non licensed people to sell it. So these low lifes who sell weed instead of working for a living will have to get a real job since no one is going to be buy it from them anymore now that they can buy it from worthwhile licensed sellers.

The people that really make a living off of it are actually working, harvesting and selling to dispensaries. Probably paying taxes.

Some of it goes out the back door and is sold on the black market and smuggled or shipped into states like Missouri. This takes work and logistics and money and product.

At that point no one that touches it is really making money. You'll get 120 $50 bags off of a $3,000 lb. Moving that in a month nets you a whopping $3,000 profit and good luck when everyone and their mom sells the [expletive]. Even if you by some chance know that many people that actually come to you first once a month that's a pain in the ass and it's not some great living.

Most people that smoke buy more and most people that are front line dealers buy less than the example above so the margin actually drops. For most "dealers" I know it's more of a way to smoke for free or a little bit of a side income. There's a fairly legit operation then transport and then hobbyists who likely have full time jobs otherwise.
