A friend of mine has a legit operation with 4 pain patients. TONS of bullsh*t hoops to jump through and lots of paperwork, background checks and while its a good buisiness today, I'll bet real soon it will be legal for anyone, the way the laws are swaying..

So your new business cards will say---Grass mowing and growing, your one stop shop.

Or another one : Grass is our business: You grow it, we'll mow it. We grow it, you blow it" I don't know - just thinking out loud. Maybe? Maybe not?

LOL!! Yea somthing like that. Or how about ill cut your grass and ill grow you some grass too. I come to find out its alot of bullcrap, but im just trying to help some friends out and maybe make a couple dollars why im at it. I think when cali makes it legal everyone else will follow suit.
I seen a show on cnn or msnb were a guy was doing it for pain patients and he was making a million a year. Thats alot of pot.lol

I know 2 caregivers...I also know a lot of people that smoke it, legally and illegally....Where do you draw the line? I think it should be legal all the way around...no bullshit forms and background checks...its just a plant.
However, I think we are going to see many michigan pot farms popping up and eventually it will be legal to sell it to anyone...patient or not.
I think it will be regulated like alcohol and tobacco, seeing as michigan is so broke they will adopt this lawn. It's already michigans #2 or 3 cash crop and its not even legal!!!
There are plenty of other drugs that are legal that do WAAYY more damage than marijuana and doctors prescribe them everyday. JUST LEGALIZE IT ALREADY! my 2 pennies.
