Pot businesses are on a hiring spree. Heres how much the jobs pay
The Sacramento Bee ^ | June 8, 2018 | David Goldstein And Anita Chabria

Eight years ago, Samantha Miller was earning six figures a year as a product developer for a LED lighting company in Northern California when a high school friend called to ask a favor. Would Miller be able to help her friend's boss at a medical marijuana dispensary figure out how to use a new machine purchased to analyze the quality of pot?

Miller passed on the job, but offered some free advice. With her background in machinery design and lab supervision, she told the dispensary folks: "You need (to hire) a scientist because you are going to ruin that piece of equipment if you don’t know how to run it."

The dispensary owner ignored her warning and sure enough, Miller soon received a call that the machine had gone kaput. Fed up, the owner offered to give the high-tech device to Miller if she could repair it — and would be willing to test the dispensary's marijuana for free....

In Mount Dora, Florida, there is a small 10 acres farm that has a license to grow and distribute marijuana wholesale. They were just bought out by a firm in California for $54 million.
Sounds like big money to me.

Dope is illegal as hell under federal law which preempts state law. Why is is this lawlessness being tolerated??? CRACK DOWN WITH MILITARY! Change the law or go to prison.

Frankly if everyone involved in the production and distribution of this garbage died a miserable death, would not lose any sleep.

I worked for them in security at an art fair in Fort Worth for their Redwood Creek brand. Nice folks, and they gave me the leftover cases of wine when they left.

“CRACK DOWN WITH MILITARY!”

Dont opine about the obvious shifting legality of it, with a tone of righteousness, and then stupidly call for the military to engage in domestic police work to outlaw the smoking of a plant.

“Frankly if everyone involved in the production and distribution of this garbage died a miserable death, would not lose any sleep.”

But yet you would scream bloody murder if anyone on the left moved in the same manner when it came to tobacco and alcohol?

That does happen in the underground mj trade.

In the legal trade, not so much. What few deaths there are come from armed robberies, like you get with liquor stores and gas stations.

Marcus Aurelius, the stoic philosopher cautioned against arguing with fools. He made three points:
1) It is unbecoming and aesthetically displeasing to witness the sight of a knowledgeable, cultured person engaging a fool in public discourse.
2) There is virtually no chance that the fool has the capacity to understand or be persuaded by your arguments no matter how logical they may be.
3) There is the slight possibility that the fool may be correct and you indeed lose stature if this happens to be the case.

Discussions with proponents of marijuana, a chemical that permeates the brain, alters brain biochemistry and has been documented to do real harm, should be governed by the wisdom of Marcus Aurelius and the other stoics.

If one learns anything from stoic philosophy, it ought to be that a flawed argument or policy, however popular or superficially appealing, inherently remains bogus despite its embrace by others. A stoic is ultimately proved correct regardless of his degree of isolation or the contempt of his contemporaries.

By the way, while most decent people agree and applaud most of Mr. Trump’s policies, many do not view him a paragon of moral virtue. He is a politician.

Legalizing a drug removes the onus from its use. Drugged people tend to create social problems, and healthy societies have no more than two legal drugs.

The wide-spread use of alcohol goes back to the beginnings of Christianity in predominantly Christian countries. That’s why Prohibition was such a failure here, and it’s why we won’t get rid of alcohol in spite of the damage it does. Alcohol is far less of an issue outside of predominantly Christian nations.

We’ve attempted to stigmatize cigarettes, with some success.

Marijuana is far more carcinogenic than tobacco. Marijuana makes people dumb and lazy. Moneyed interests, including George Soros, encourage it, but it’s not good or right to do so.
