Their declared intention is to expand to other states as fast as marijuana get legalized further on a state by state basis.

Diego Pellicer has been founded by millionaire former Microsoft executive Jamen Shively.
Jamen Shively, a former Microsoft corporate strategy manager, said he envisions his Seattle-based enterprise becoming the leader in both recreational and medical cannabis - much like Starbucks is the dominant name in coffee, he said.

Good call...Slowly but surely I guess. I never understood the logic behind the illegality of it besides funding the war on drugs... I wonder how much more money we can make by taxing it. Didn't the taboo start by someone in government writing a report on it with completely nonsensical info (just as much if not more misinfo as the bible)...I googled but can't come up with his name... Not Anslinger, someone well before him???

The Wall Street crowd has a very different view of marijuana than the pot heads.

Agricultural hemp farming (the type of hemp that won't get you high, but is grown for its fiber and seed oil) is finally becoming legal again in the United States.

Quote:George Washington and Thomas Jefferson grew hemp, but centuries later the plant was swept up in anti-drug efforts and growing it without a federal permit was banned in the 1970 Controlled Substances Act.

The last Drug Enforcement Administration hemp permit was issued in 1999 for a quarter-acre experimental plot in Hawaii. That permit expired in 2003.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture last recorded an industrial hemp crop in the late 1950s, down from a 1943 peak of more than 150 million pounds on 146,200 harvested acres.
