Interesting times ahead, but I get the feeling that we are going to be late to the legalise and decriminalise party, and by the time it does eventually happen here, pharma companies will have already developed various cannabis medicines that the existing pharmacies will be selling under prescription only, thereby enriching the lives of doctors, pharmacists and big pharma.
I've been waiting far too many years for something to happen (40 yrs a tokin), and I just can't see it happening the way we would like it to.
In my ideal world, we would end up with more of a cottage industry style market, kind of like the farmers markets scene, individual organic growers showing off their wares and price setting by supply and demand, with top grown products obtaining a premium price, take the whole business out of the hands of the gun killing criminals.
But alas, this is Ireland, we will end up with some fucked up compromise if anything.
PS, I noticed Leo had a photo shot with Black Francis at the recent Pixies gig at the Iveagh Gardens, so I guess there's hope yet. :-)
