New York Reaches a Deal to Legalize Recreational Marijuana
The move paves the way for a potential $4.2 billion industry, with millions of dollars in sales tax revenue reinvested in minority communities each year.
The deal to legalize recreational marijuana in New York followed years of pressure from advocates.Credit...Cindy Schultz for The New York Times

Biden is whiter and older?  Odd.  Except Trump, since Reagan, every president has pulled on a joint at some point or another.  

Man, no matter what the real story is, the optics on this one are terrible.  But before condemning this as a big political miscalculation, where in the Democratic would pressure emerge to purge staff of marijuana smokers?  What's the back story?

Biden White House Sandbags Staffers, Sidelines Dozens for Pot Use

 
 
 
Dozens of young White House staffers have been suspended, asked to resign, or placed in a remote work program due to past marijuana use, frustrating staffers who were pleased by initial indications from the Biden administration that recreational use of cannabis would not be immediately disqualifying for would-be personnel, according to three people familiar with the situation.The policy has even affected staffers whose marijuana use was exclusive to one of the 14 states—and the District of Columbia—where cannabis is legal. Sources familiar with the matter also said a number of young staffers were either put on probation or canned because they revealed past marijuana use in an official document they filled out as part of the lengthy background check for a position in the Biden White House.

In some cases, staffers were informally told by transition higher-ups ahead of formally joining the administration that they would likely overlook some past marijuana use, only to be asked later to resign.

Some irony: Barack Obama wouldn't be allowed to work for Joe Biden.

Oh course...Kamala Harris gets a pass.

Because irony is dead.

That, and the Coast Guard doesn't recognize the state laws when you are dealing with them.

 
Wrong (as usual). I'm a risk vs. reward kinda guy. Draw your own conclusions as to what that means, but I think it's unwise to discuss your illicit activities in an open forum on the internet (where you also rail about others breaking laws of the land).

How many grams to a gallon?

Ohio’s marijuana possession penalties are some of the most lenient in the country when it comes to personal use amounts. The amounts of marijuana you possess also affects the criminal penalties you could face. As long as you possess 100 grams of marijuana or less, Ohio marijuana possession does not even go on your criminal record. However, this leniency does not carry through to cases of marijuana distribution or for possession of amounts over 100 grams.
 
You got me.

Yes, Ohio has been one of the most progressive states regarding cannabis.  The law was enacted back in 73 or 74, right around when I turned 21.  The amount also had to be cleaned of any seeds or stems before weighing.  If the defendant was aware of that part and pressed that issue.  If the seeds were to be used as evidence, they had to be viable.  Meaning they would have to be planted and sprout in order to be determined "viable".  And only in one container.  Two or more opens the door for trafficking or distribution charges.

Now what we all found out after the good news is that it was the paraphernalia that got you in real trouble.  If busted in a vehicle with dirty or used paraphernalia, the vehicle could be impounded immediately and the driver's license was suspended for at least 6 months and then all of the reinstatement fees, the record of a suspension and why, etc.  Your vehicle insurance would skyrocket and you would have to get a bond, same as for a DWI conviction, now called OUI.

Smart people would only have a pre rolled doobie(s) in order to avoid that problem.  A simple alligator clip would be enough to launch all that into motion.

But you're not the kinda guy who would need to know any of this kinda information now are you ?  You're a law and order guy, right ?  Too old to try it and get started now even though it is legal where you live and then what about your rep, eh ?

Sundial Growers?    Please elaborate.    
 

The prospect of federal legalization in the U.S. could spark a torrent of acquisitions in the cannabis industry. This is just one that has a lot of positive hype to go along with the technicals. There are dozens of pot stocks. Take your pick and do your due diligence and you can make some d'oh. (This is not stock advice. )Just what I've heard from peeples who do this for a living. I've heard it has a lot of volume and may hit 4. The election has given the pot industry a boost. I just buy gas and food with my money.  Electric cars and clean energy are good bets, too, btw. 
 

Thanks.  I am watching it.   (In passing, the big story in the stock market over the past 3 months has been oil exploration and production companies.)  

In the meantime, I went ahead and established a small, initial position Fire & Flower Cannabis FAF.to.  OTCQX: FFLWF.   It is owned by Alimentacion Couche-Tard (own) that runs a growing international empire of roadside convenience stores and fuel stops.    

Fire & Flower just announced that it would list on NASDAQ.   Already one of the largest cannabis retailers in Canada, FAF also recently announced a strategic agreement with private Canadian company to distribute products in CA, AZ and NV.  

This is a very speculative play.   For adults with risk management skills.   Or for trust funders, oil patch workers and the terminally ill with nothing to lose.

It's like any other stock. Do your diligence, pick your entry and exit points.  I rolled a good bit of my at risk fund into mj and solar energy stocks right after the election. It's been a healthy start to the year. I've already hit my sell points on a few of them. I've bought back in on a couple of the energy stocks.  

The reddit stuff is baffling to me. There is very little view of fundamentals, just crowd think and momentum. I've thought of trying to make an options  model that works on against them, but crazy doesn't fit in a spreadsheet.  Just review your stop loss orders frequently and move them as appropriate. 

I also subscribe to the theory that once you hear about the next great thing, it is too late to act on it.
