Yes. Here is why.
#1 - I have sold to dispensaries in California, my home state - and they don't care what it is as long as the people want to get stoned. I have delivered high quality medicinal and they literally tossed it into another labeled bin that was trend selling. What about particular issues with Sativa or Indica? No care.
#2 - In Nevada, the Cannabis medicinal scene is 100% dirty. 1st time in my life I ever smoked weed that tasted like what is to be expected from the tainted laced weed we were all warned about (paraquat, etc), which we never found. I lived in Nevada for 18 months and literally stopped purchasing from local dispensaries because I know chemicals, i know artificial flavourings, and i don't like my wax the consistency peanut butter which was pretty much standard before i left last year.
#3 Legalization has done nothing other than what was expected: Deliver huge sums of money to local governments and their best friends turned dispensary owners.
The entire goal was to take the money out of the hands street dealers and place it into the pockets of those willing to go the extra mile to pay them $150k-300k just for a 100 plant grow license, or $250k-500k for a dispensary license, plus the $4000-$10,000 dollar application fee
(and some states have a 2 application process), and lastly the annual renewal of these licenses.
Justice is the advantage of the stronger. Whenever you you see any legislation, it is always 100% attached by business interest. It is business interest which drives the world and your lives, unless you move to change that.
It is the language of commerce which has determined everything around you. It is why you have a "citizenSHIP", "relationSHIPs", and use a currency-current-sea, that is managed by banks which every river has, like they all have a docks with a berth/birth where people get their berth/birth-certificate on arrival from the ship.
Even the moon is part of the great Mani-money hoax, and the name games only matter in so much as hopefully shaking a person out of this tree of good and evil called "society" so they land on their hit and go "oh shit, this place is nuts, we need to get away from it all".
Many of us know this and just do not say it to ourselves, or ever entertain the thoughts:
Nothing good comes of the government for long, anywhere, ever. The worst thing they could do is put their hands in our pretty green flowers and now they have, and none of those people growing big and small on their own who don't seek sources like this, know of Monsanto..
Won't be long before everyone is smoking Marijuanto by Monsanto, Marlbudsboro, and Republic Tobacco & Cannabis Flavoured pre-rolls.
And that is what it is about. Nothing to do with with medicine, or healing, or regulation, and everything to do with the fact that the combustion engine came out in 1775, the electric car was doing 100kph in 1911, and here we are 2018 and Elon Musks is pretending like making electric cars is monumental effort: Money.
