    The biggest cannabis agri firms are actually Canadian firms rather than US.
    Thanks, but it doesn't change the main thrust of my argument.

    We can have both.

    Reduced costs for the justice system. Improved health for those in need. Increase in the tax take. Increases in legitimate employment.

    Yes, we can, and we appear to be heading there. Ironic though that society's morality shifts according to who lobbies hardest. Bookies are now pariahs again, with a loss of jobs.

    Might indicate how well researched it is tho :-)

    Naa seriously nothing significant can happen in the states without a racial lens being put on it. Race may be an element to the recent liberation of state laws on cannabis but if it is Iím not buying the fact that it is the primary driver.

    Clearly the US market for weed is a significant new market so itís no surprise that there is capital chasing that. And with some players worth multi $b and the likes of Canopy already listed on the NYSE investor shows in London are not really an indication of anything but standard fair.

    Researched at the University of the Bloke in the Pub.

    Feel free to make corrections that will make a significant difference to the hypothesis.

    Lets put it another way, most of the people investing in Cannabis are white. You can take whatever conclusion from that you want.

    Likewise, business is investing, bookies are getting closed, and the Chief Medical Officer has come out and backed medicinal Cannabis. People can draw their own conclusions.

    Id be interested in alternative interpretations.

    Ahh defo the best place for research thatís for sure


    But none the less it seems impossible for you to have any reliable evidence of what colour of skin investors have in a business, especially ones that are publicly listed....not a statistic share register analysis normally evidences. Or indeed the percentage of white investors in cannabis v other markets. How does the percentage of investors that are white in the cannabis industry compare to the percentage of investors that are white is say technology or biotech or any other industry that the States tends to dominate?

    Then of course there is the obvious examples where the investor is not white as we see with Casa Verde Capital which is an extremely prominent cannabis industry investor.

    The there is another couple of counter arguments in that, as per some statistics, black people in America are 4 times more likely to be prosecuted for cannabis then the legalisation of it will benefit them significantly. Also there is the suggestion that prohibition of the drug was racially motivated in the first place, that narrative seems somewhat at odds if the removal of that prohibition is now also being described as racially motivated.

    So as I said Iím not buying the fact the the primary driver for the wave of legalisation across the US is based in racial prejudice. If anything this is a classic case of correlation not causation.

    And finally Iíve got no idea about how any of that links to bookies being closed 🤪

    Close bookies, lose tax, empty shops, need new stream of tax, empty shops. No evidence, they haven't been good enough to admit it.

    I think you're missing the point. I'm saying there are lots of signs that legalisation is imminent.

    "White Man" need not necessarily relate to skin colour, rather respectability, although chances are most of the funders do have white skin, given the socio-economic mix of the USA.

    Some have also said that the war on drugs was actually a war on black people, no citations available. I

    Back to the point I made, I reckon legalisation will be soon in the UK. I am not in charge of the decision making process, and all I am doing is reading the signs.

    Up until very recently I smoked it a lot. I stopped because it was costing me a lot and it was making me lazy. I have two staffies that need a lot of exercise and the weed made me just want to sit in the house. Not sure if it has that effect on everyone though.

    Why use he term white man? I think you are trying to highlight something that doesn't really exist. Are you Yaya Toure?

    If you could have went somewhere and bought less strong stuff for slightly less cost would you have? A bit pollen for example?

    I suspect you are looking for something that isn't there. Maybe I should have said "Men Who Mostly Are Not Black?

    I hadn't really thought of it. It's part of the conspiracy theory in stoner circles.

    Watch movies like Savages. Ya Ya Toure got turned down for a part.

    I know Iíll get stic for this but I donít agree that it should be legalised, only for medicinal purposes. When I was younger I smoked so much that I was hearing voices in my head and I know this was due to my over consumption but when you think itís fine to smoke you willl smoke to excess. I was constantly in and out the Andrew Duncan hospital. It totally ruined my life for a few years and my families. Thankfully I am better now but am traumatised from the ordeal. If it was legal I would advise nobody to smoke it as it certainly does nothing but damage your lungs and your mental health. I agree though that it should be legal for medicinal purposes such as for people who suffer from Parkinsonís, seizures or cancer and other medical conditions as it does actually help. I know Iíll probably get stick for this and what I say but please do stay away from it guys. Thanks.

    Same could be said for alcohol, gambling, chocolate biscuits and loads of other things.

    If a person is addicted to painkillers than cannabis, such as jelly bean can save the situation and help people recover their pains. So I think that medical marijuana should be legalized.

    My Mrs is addicted to Tramadol. It is part of mixture of tablets that she has to take. The advice from her GP is that as she needs them, there is more harm in not taking them on the proviso that the dosage does not exceed what she is told to take. Difference is that it comes in box from the chemist, rather than a mate of a mate inva dodgy flat.
