    There is no way that a unionized industry can be formed around growing a common weed unless the power of the government is brought to bear to make sure that no one can grow it without permission.   That's why Laura writes about medical MJ rather than legal recreational MJ.

    MJ can be grown locally, in warehouses and garages.  It is a perfect example of an industry that should be decentralized.  

    Pot could be independently tested and certified for purity and THC content.     The industry does not need to be regulated or unionized in order to produce a quality product.

    "Medical" MJ is just a step towards full legalization.  IF the medical MJ'ers try to fight full legalization just to control their market, profits or union jobs, they should lose.

    MJ should be legal.  People should be able to grow and nurture their own favorite strains and "heirloom" varieties.  It should be regulated just like Tomatoes or Tofu.    

    Religion gives men the strength to do what should not be done.
