Fred Duckels 2 days, 10 hours ago on Kody May: Enough about pot

Think of the advertising revenue that a fully developed pot fiasco can develop. The Denver Post has a full time MJ editor and features a wall to wall promotion. The defunct establishment in Milner used to buy full page ads. Research is scarce when it comes to pot, it is like dietary supplements, it can't be patented. In other instances such as tobacco we find vigorous research funded by the gov. We have the leftist universities which are usually at the grant trough eager to trot, but in this case I suspect that their hearts are really not into the downside of pot and there are no deep pocketed corporations to fleece.

The Pilot has already hung the "mission accomplished" banner. It will take a few years to establish any statistics such as dependency on government assistance in order to see developing patterns.

Bankruptcy is not a parachute. In the private sector one or more of the risk takers are going to lose. Folks that have walked away from a house often are badgered later on when they get on their feet, and then a 1099 from the lender adds more grief.

In my business we have two basic rules. 1- no excuses and and 2- no pointing fingers. The AH supporters seem to have a problem with that idea.

Those buying at the top of the market in the private sector payed dearly ,this group only takes a sabbatical and reshuffles the deck while the taxpayers pick up the pieces. Who is responsible here? This group should be eliminated until we get a backup plan covering bad decisions. The Pilot seems eager maybe they can sign off.

Bill and Scott, I am familiar with the drumbeat concerning alcohol. I agree that it takes a toll but regardless life has it's ups and downs which are part of life and to eliminate this experience means to never truly experience this gift. If we don't deal with the downside of life we are will never really live.
