Hoping that Wall Street gets high on the new business of pot, they've established the HT Growth Fund, a new private-equity fund that will invest in the growth of established mid-size cannabis-related businesses.

Well, it's a start - I'm looking forward to the pot cafes like they have in Amsterdam - such a good business, so much better than the bars - just have plenty of munchies and pot and coffee and tea - no problem with "café brawls"!

In agreement with Lee also. Gerry...DUI is DUI whether alcohol or pot if you are stopped you can/will be charged

Pot, marijuana or weed or whatever you want to call it, is a drug. It should never be legal. All we need is more drug addicts in the world. And medical marijuana is a crock of shit, it only helps because you get so high you dont feel anything.

aAhough I have never used drugs in my life except those prescribed for me by my GP.I do think that there is a case for using it for medicinal purposes the fact that some people use it in order to escape from constant pain and YES get relief from their misery is I think a legiitiment use for it.

Finally a replacement for the aggressive alcohol.
Wondering when this legalization will come to Sweden, here it is for now 0 - tolerance and people feel crappy, just drink large amounts of alcohol and fighting.

Love

And they still ban smoking in the coffee house! But Phil, realize the ban on foreigners were because they were not polite drug users, so why do you think they would be polite in there own county?

With the ignorant posters here who are concerned about DUI - I have driven while on a "pot" high - it hasn't affected my driving at all, if anything I tend to be more careful, as far as addiction is concerned, pot is non-addictive, for medical use - it is a god-send, and as a plant it has far more uses, both medical and for fuel that has been as yet untapped due to its illegality. Most bad reports of driving etc, is due to mixing alcohol with pot - alcohol is an addictive drug, that has far more dangerous consequences both in its mind altering aggression and affects on reality and abilities to function.
You will be arrested if found DUI on marijuana, the likelihood of being stopped because of that substance alone would, in my estimation, be far unlikely. I'm a pot user for about 45 years, off and on - I never used while my children were children - so there was a 20 year hiatus, I resumed and still do it both recreationally with my daughter, and medicinally for my arthritis. I live in the city, so driving is no longer relevant!

There's a new industry lobby in town, & its name is Big Pot! They support munchies for all.

Lee, I totally agree with you about the driving thing. My friend Louis & I used to smoke out on weekends & Fridays after work, sit around talking about current events or interests until we decided to go eat, then we would drive around to our various destinations, noting the people who were drunk-driving. They were very obvious because they would swerve on turns, wander out of lanes, & generally display very well-defined traits of alcohol intoxication. We never had that problem at all.
