Commercialization of Legalized Cannabis: A Synopsis

Recreational cannabis hasn’t been legal for long, but a lot of ink has already been spilled about it. While the media have given extensive coverage to its potential health effects and to the impacts and ramifications of cannabis use for employers, little has been said regarding the commercialization and marketing of this new product and its accessories1 by businesses.

The Gnomes of Darkness Present..”Top Cannabis Industry Clusterfucks of 2018″

The tone may seem a bit offhand, even careless, and our language much the same.

To this end, Jordan's piece makes us aware where we should look a little closer at ourselves.

Bye Bye Jeff, Sadder Goodbye To Dana Rohrabacher, CA & Tax & CA Midterms Outcomes

Ding dong, the witch is dead, the mean old Jeff Sessions is gone!!! Xmas came early.  Do you think it's the name, as Republican Pete Sessions of Texas, the chairman of the House Rules Committee, declared cannabis enemy, just lost to Democratic challenger Colin Allred. Allred was no friend to either of the Sessions!  Election time in America, more of a frightening affair of how this country thinks and where those particular thoughts are domiciled.
