Berkeley wants pot growers to give it away free to poor people

Seriously! They approved a ballot measure mandating free weed to low-income residents, organic growing methods, and offsetting the amount of electricity used to grow it.

Also, it’s getting comical how small growers don’t want legalization because 1) it might cut their profits and 2) the McDonaldization of growing might happen.

Both are spurious concerns. If it’s legal, grower’s costs will drop dramatically and boutique specialty marijuana will always have a market.

Joe Kennedy made far more money from booze after his bootlegging days than before. (He got himself appointed Ambassador to England as Prohibition was ending and lined up all the liquor importing contracts from there to here.)
