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.

People were collecting signatures at the International Womens Day demonstration today, and being very careful about how you signed it, given the problems that were had last time. Good luck to the people at http://show-mecannabis.com/

Anybody try the CBD products? Any feedback to share?

I saw you can have it in coffee.

Pretty sure it’s snake oil. Sure it’ll make your snake shiny but will it really give you better gas mileage?
