  1. My family owns a large plant nursery and was recently licensed to grow certain strains of marijuana. We currently have millions (likely tens of millions) of plants growing. Our operation was very large already simply selling perennials, annuals, shuns, trees, herbs, vegetables, fruits etc., but within a few months of starting our marijuana operation we have decided to fully dedicate our farm to it, as the net profit is ~8x what is was before. There is a short clip on my channel of one of our houses. If enough interest is shown, I can post a video of the scale of our operation as well as provide insight as to how we run it. Thanks!

  4. Could be legalized any day now nationally, crazy that it’s still considered federally illegal

  5. As a constitutionalist, yes, it should be legal and so should a lot of things that are not.
    According to the Constitution it is in fact legal as far as I am concerned.
    However people should also take responsibility for their own actions.
    For example just because it is legal it doesn't mean that you can smoke it in my face.
    If I don't want it on my property then don't bring it.
    The real reason it was made illegal in the first place was because of the chemical companies .
    Hemp was used for clothing and paper . Other things as well.
    You need chemicals to treat the wood to make paper.
    All you need for hemp to become paper is water.
    Cotton the same thing.
    Now you all want it to be legal so that you can live in a doped up state of mind.
    What's wrong? Mommy and Daddy didn't love you enough?

  6. Legalize it across the country there's nothing wrong with it and never was.

  7. When the dispensary prices get down to where the black market prices are the cartels will be ruined in America.

  8. They walk by liquor stores too… and they pour alcohol on tampons … so it won't be on the breath.

  9. The whole “think of the kids” argument is disingenuous. Many things are potentially dangerous for kids yet we assume people are individually responsible for keeping themselves and their dependents safe.

    Don’t NERF the world 🌎.

  10. Please Trash tabacco and alcohol, no one died because of Marihuana, no Alcohol and tabacco causes Cancer, heart deseases and much more.

  11. I'm sorry but this is a ridiculous study. This man states they didn't find a spike of consumption in adolescence, but then says it's still illegal if you're under 21. How exactly did you get your info correct then? A teenager isn't going to admit to smoking or consuming marijuana if they know they could be putting themselves in danger. They are more educated nowadays. Come on people, think about it. Also, this reporter was way too happy and jovial to hear this man discredit her grandfather's concerns. Wonder what she does on her free time🤔

  12. Kids die from alcohol but you don't see media trashing alcohol. OIC if it kills you its ok but if you get a safe buzz ban it. SMH
