    Thanks for following this story, MJ Biz Daily, and especially for directing readers to the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission. IMHO, the very lovely Shaleen Title should chair that commission—no offense to the dude or other members. Ms. Title is among the most inspiring legal minds on any official policy related to cannabis plants.

    It seems those sales numbers in MA are quite impressive for only two stores.

    Still, it’s easy to suspect that thousands of customers are boosting the numbers by taking serious risks, in total defiance of federal law, and crossing state borders. That is, people from Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont. I’ve seen border county sheriffs here in New York on local TV news, boasting about their authority to pull over drivers who make such “illicit” shopping trips.

    New York is slower than molasses in tolerating such an abundance of commercial enterprise.

    Instead, the magical female flowers of these plants—or any products derived from them—are still much too widely feared and hunted down. It can truly perplex someone why the seizures of cannabis plants and products ever began, let alone when they will ever end. Imagine how much national wealth has been totally squandered in all that time.

    It is very simple in the reasoning dept- POLITICS the very root of ALL evil! Money can’t line their pockets yet,but they are working on it! Please continue to waste time talking about it while the rest of the world (US included)grows their own in their basements ,closets, ECT. Same as bathtub gin in the proibition years!
