    No, I’m sure making pornography will never yield shabby profits. Of course he will probably lose most of it by filing menial lawsuits.

  • I believe the majority of the people present were in the local mmj industry. So, it’s a pretty biased snapshot.

  • I disagree. The MMJ community has shown significant adversity toward I-502 (which, Holcomb has somewhat brilliantly wielded to garner support for 502 from non-cannabis users. Second, you mention “greedy growers” as if they set the prices within access points. That’s a glaringly inaccurate assumption. All prices are set by the access points, despite how much they purchase the medicine for.

  • Cognitive restructuring might help. Just keep repeating to yourself, “I am not a loser.” Once such thoughts are integrated, it can change the reality. Best of luck.

  • “If my goal was greed, I would be promoting 502 so I could go out and sell it to every adult, not just patients.”

    You clearly have no idea how the law of supply and demand works.

  • What will you do when 502 passes? You’ll have to compete with the legal market, and might have to change careers.

    I am glad you are proud of your brown nosing for rectal russ bunghole. He needs all of the support he can get, since he is largely irrelevant to any but the most extreme fanatics. The fact is that even at an event populated by stoners, no one aside from you, russ and the I-502 booth staff supported I-502. I don’t know if marginalization or rectalization is the better term for your political status.

  • If you really think the Drug Czar is cheering in anticipation of I-502’s passage because it has a 5ng per se in it, you’re hallucinating. I asked his right hand man in March about it and was told the Drug Czar strongly opposes I-502.

    Send your hero money….he’s going to need it. When his pet project, I-502 dies, so will his show. We all pick causes. Some of us just pick the wrong ones. That’s Russ. He already knows it….he’s just waiting and hoping he was wrong.
