My whole life I was taught that drugs were bad by the same institution (government) that now have made pot legal.  I don't like the road America is going down and I don't understand.

At some point, anything of value can become subject of barter or trade. About 3000 years ago people would have looked at you rather funny if you tried to trade something, called money, for meat or grain. I am not against people growing pot, but sure would not take it as payment.
It's the going that counts not the distance!

Could it be that your potential customer looked at you and figured that you might go for the deal? Just asking.  Regards, Clark

My whole life I was taught that drugs were bad by the same institution (government) that now have made pot legal.  I don't like the road America is going down and I don't understand.

Let me take a stab at the understanding part. And let me also say that I still don't like it.

All my life, I've lived out in the sticks and have had neighbor's that were pot growers. (Except for the 2 years I lived in Utah.)  The worst part for me and my family was the criminal element of it all.  Local farmers having to hide and protect their cash crop from every possible intruder.  Gun battles didn't happen often but they did happen. I once had a 17 year old boy show me bits of his mother's brain splattered on the wall. (A mix of pot and an angry pot farmer with a shotgun).

I now have several weed growing neighbor's that are going broke because of price drops secondary to pot now being legal, and that is a good thing.  I don't like the way things are going but in at least one aspect, there is some improvement. And yes I know that the legalization of marijuana has opened up other problems, but life is better where I live.

And one more thing. About an hours drive from here there was a big pot bust last fall.  Seams someone got greedy and planted way over the legal number of plants.  There was like 2,000 plants.

The home grown that was around Vermont back in the early 70's was so poor we travelled with grocery bags of the stuff.Hardly worth the trouble.

Interesting thread.

Here in Canada, it should be legalized some time this year if all goes to the governments plan. Pots use is very prevalent and widespread in Canada and Im assuming in the US as well. It will be interesting to see how it plays out and what problems are solved and created by legalization. When it comes to taxes, Im a lefty, I dont mind paying my share, and every case of beer I buy is taxed heavily. With the widespread use of pot these days, tax revenue should increase substancially when it becomes legal. On the negative, we will see what kind of problems are created that consume tax dollars. With a little luck, it should be a positive cash flow for the government..we will see........

Pot is legal in California now but is still a Federal crime to have it.  The growers cannot put their money in a bank that is FDIC insured since it cannot handle illegal transactions.   So it is strictly a cash operation.  Being cash, there is no paper trail.  Very quickly the tax office figured out that maybe they are not showing all their transactions on the tax paperwork.  Now they want to make a State bank so credit card payments can be used and the cash can be deposited.  Why were they surprised that so much can be hidden with a cash-based enterprise?
