    Vetting of proposed N.J. pot dispensary seems hazy | NJ.com

    Fake doctors. Fake diplomas. Fake tax status. Insurance fraud. Felons. Ponzi schemers.

    Sounds like it will be "business as usual" in the Garden State. :evil:

    Why should they? The government is going to be giving out free pot soon.

    Wow. Corrupt people with money influencing public policy? The OWS crowd should be outraged! :lol:

    The Star Ledger does a great job on investigative reporting.

    WHAT?!?!?!?

    Are you saying that people already involved in the pot trade have links to criminals and know who to call to launder their "cash" transactions?!?!?!?!?

    I'm shocked to learn this.

    no really. Who could have seen this coming?


    Nest thing you'll tell me is that strip clubs are often fronts for whore houses. :cool:

    Ha ha. Some of us did. The ones who still have a few brain cells left, that is.

    Check out the link. You too can get a diploma from Cannibis College - a printable PDF within minutes.

    If I ask for an original, from the school, so it has a seal and looks all pro and stuff.


    Will they print it on hemp paper of regular, just in case? :lol:

    The mistake New Jersey (and Maine, too) is making is allowing the POLS to turn marijuana into a privately owned distributorship.

    Of course we know this isn't really a mistake, don't we?

    A mistake implies that they are trying to do good, but failing.

    What they're doing is setting up private industries and granting them exclusive licenses to make money.

    Basically the states are allowing private MONOPOLIES to form.

    Exactly. And NJ is the pharmaceutical capital of the world. Why aren't the drug companies handling this like any other medicine? No one with diabetes or a heart condition can walk into CVS and present their "insulin or high blood pressure card".

    They can't have it both ways. It is "medicine" or it is not.

    If its a DRUG it ought to be dsitributed at every drug store.

    Here in Maine, they're putting marijuana distributorships far away from the population centers.

    The government ought to get th ehell out of this business entirely.

    No taxes or laws are necessary regarding marijuana.

    Just forget about it.

    It makes no more sense to regulate POT than it would make sense to regulate mint.

    I wish NJ the same success with marijuana that California has enjoyed.
