    The game is already full of wannabe Philip Morris's. All it does is speed things a bit. If the US Fed goes legal BTW cannabis prices will plummet because off shore extracts etc will kill local producers on price. This is perhaps the first step towards full Fed legalization and an open market both domestically and internationally.

      That's how it has been in the past but now with Biden saying (pre-election) he wants to bring manufacturing back to the USA and the constant Republican drumbeat of 'Buy American', the 'international' part may not be so assured, especially as the price in USA comes down!

          It would depend on how they legislated it but in the true nature of globalisation I expect it would be a relatively open market driven by commodity prices - the Democrats afterall tending to be ideologically true to neoliberalism and as such globalisation.

          The problem with US prices is they are dictated by high production costs when compared with much lower offshore production costs which means US producers cannot compete on a price point basis with offshore producers. For example, field grown cannabis in Colombia or now Mexico (coming soon) used in extraction. I actually know of one Colombian company selling a kg of 90% THC extract for $1,500.00. Predictive modelling also tells us that made in the USA cannot compete against the price points of e.g. made in Mexico etc.


          Either way only time will tell.

            one good thing is that many countries made it illegal just because of the states telling them to. so them getting looser will help other countries loosen things up..hopefully. canada went against UN drug laws and of course smaller countries would be scared to go against the states/un treaties.

              That's for certain. It is hard to sustain laws that were built on lies when all the scientific evidence undermines these lies.

                  One would think of reduced production costs? How do you reduce the cost on something grown outside? Is that due to land cost which would one off purchase?

IF McConnell allowed votes on shit he does not like, he would not be the current Senate head, subject to change. he provides political cover for Senators that tell constituents "well, i WOULD vote for that , but Senate leadership won't let us even talk about it..."
                    exactly. McConnell is ONLY there to give other politicians an out when pressed by their constituents on certain laws like you stated. they KNOW that McConnell is a shoe in to win his next election regardless of how he runs the Senate and that is the sole reason he maintains his position.

                      I dunno about that. People can always go solar and those smart meter's won't mean shit when you are not on the grid and also there will be zero reason for them to have a meter for you.

                        I agree with some of this. However, acknowledging that it was largely the US that pushed the UN to crack down on cannabis and other 'drugs', prohibitions, like hatred and ignorance of other types, sometimes take on lives of their own.

                        When governments actively lie to their people for policy's sake, whether the lie is perpetrated for 10, 20, 30, 50, or hundreds of years, once that government, almost any government, has willfully joined a lie, they lose face to back out of it, because that requires at least SOME addressing of their past dishonesty, one way or another.

                        The UN was a lackey to the US effort toward global or more broad economic, social, and immigration control via prohibitionist policies.

                        And the UN vote to remove cannabis from the dangerous drugs list was only 2 votes away from tied. I think it was 57 to 55, to remove ganja from the list that it never should have been on in the first place.

                        But the liars, deniers, power gropers and manipulators are doing what we all will do... dying as they age... Thank heavens!!

                          This IS a step in the right direction, though. Maybe we'll have a united Govt body regarding this, in, say, 2090.

                            wtf are you talking about? the un started the drug schedules and the u.s. adopted their drug schedule almost word for words less than 10 years later. next are you going to say the u.s. is leading gun control and not the u.n.?

                              Labour costs and the cost of living etc. Lower taxes and yes sure cheaper land. There's a whole bunch of reasons developing countries are able to undercut Western produced prices.

                                But then US doesn't seem to be a country with the highest land cost, cost of of living may be different, but I am, quite honestly, unsure of these factors.
                                Perhaps its worth to get some sort of average price chart per oz in particular country.
                                I seem to have heard of unofficial international finance statistics.
                                The way I see it could work is same way as production in any other industry perhaps.
                                Where you would have mum and dad/part time grow a long with pension/day job.
                                Hardly surviving medium sized "farm"...
                                Or fair sized operations with shares and investors. The situation definitely wont stay as ?easy? as now....
                                It is always a trade off, surely there would be a selling point for homegrown stuff too that can compete with offshore production?
