    I don't have a link yet unfortunately, but I have it on good authority that a large Florida bank has agreed to work with Florida's burgeoning medical marijuana industry. :clap::clap::tup:
    May or may not see it in the news there tomorrow. As soon as I get a link I will update.

    ...And now a message from US Attorney Andrew Lelling; a Trump appointee who took office on Dec. 21 on his take regarding recreational marijuana dispensaries in Massachusetts.
    :disgust:
    The top federal prosecutor in Massachusetts on Monday refused to rule out a crackdown on regulated marijuana companies, setting the state up as a front line in the war between President Trump’s administration and the dozens of states where cannabis is legal for recreational or medical use.

    BLACK PEOPLE MORE PRONE TO EFFECTS OF MARIJUANA DUE TO 'GENETICS,’ ‘CHARACTER MAKEUP,’ KANSAS REPUBLICAN SAYS

    Kansas State Representative Steve Alford said Sunday blacks are more affected by marijuana because of their “character makeup” and “their genetics” when trying to explain why drugs should be “outlawed” to a room of 60 people—none of whom were African American.

    Alford made the comment during a legislative coffee session in response to a comment that marijuana would offer an economic boost to Kansas.

    Apparently, the Trump administration, under Sessions, has stopped prosecution of three of the five arrested and prosecuted by the Obama administration.

    Because the dismissal was "without prejudice", it is possible some of the charges can be refiled. I suspect they won't be.

    This is great news. Though forgive me if I'm not ready to throw Jeff Sessions a ticker tape parade just yet.

    Two days after the dismissal, on the same day Sessions tore up the Cole Memo, he appointed a new US Attorney to the Eastern District of Washington. I'm sure it was just a coincidence.

    Ticker tape for 'ol Jeffey? You can be assured there is no one reading who will attend. But, for Jeffey to reach the evil of Obama...I just don't see it. (Some might say, that as in the case of the Five, it is the Rohrabacher-Farr amendment hat has limited the Administration(s) and not a memo. If 'ol Jeffey gets Congress to not renew that, then we might see a reversion to the dark times of Obama.)

    I'm not 100% convinced yet.

    The US Attorney said:

    “We have also prosecuted large-scale marijuana distribution organizations and did so even while operating under the recently rescinded DOJ guidance. Prosecution of drug possession cases has not been a priority.”

    I was never concerned that the Feds would start prosecuting end users. I am concerned that they will work to dismantle the legal cannabis market. Nothing this guy said has quelled my fears.

    I don't disagree, but at the moment there is no retail structure here in ME to disrupt. The only legal sales are MMJ and they cannot currently go after that. The only likely affect this will have here is to further delay the setup of retail recreational business, which, unfortunately, our minority-elected governor has been trying to do since we passed the law.

    (The one "large scale" operation they disrupted was a farm the feds had been investigating under Obama....it went on for over three years before they finally busted the guy. He had 1000s of kilos of weed....it was most definitely "large scale".)

    Ha Ha WA DC’s flea markets sounds just like our farmers medical cannabis markets we used to have in WA state before legal cannabis. We could find all kinds of edibles, creams, waxes and shatters plus 60 different cannabis flowers or more to choose from. These were all sold at reasonable prices. We cannot have farmers markets any longer. It’s only sold in WA state stores. Everything is followed with a barcode from seed to sale of the products.
