Make it hurt.
Start dealing with the MJ problem and the local bank.
<>Make the local branch manager responsible for handling this cash.
<>This MJ problem cannot manage the flood of cash, if it is bottled-up before the laundry at the local bank.
not all of them...

California’s former top cop forms marijuana distribution firm in new age of legalization
Former California Atty. Gen. Bill Lockyer is going from enforcing laws against marijuana to legally distributing the drug under the states new rules that allow the sale and possession of pot for recreational use.
With state-licensed sales of marijuana starting Jan. 1, Lockyer has co-founded a firm, C4 Distro, that will distribute packaged marijuana concentrates and edibles to stores in Los Angeles.
He says Californias new regulated system has a chance to be a model for the rest of the country.
For me as somebody who was on the law enforcement side for so many years, I saw the inadequacies of the effort to regulate something just by calling it illegal, Lockyer said. I think legalizing will help stabilize and help legitimize this industry and result in better consumer protection and other public benefits.
The hypocrisy of the obama wink and a nod of just ignoring laws needs to end.
If legalization takes place, cops can’t seize cars, cash, homes on the pretext that it might be used for marijuana sales. Ends the cash cow that has taken hundreds of millions illegally from law abiding taxpayers.
The hypocrisy of federalism (which has enumerated powers) trying to bully states (which have constitutional rights) is the problem. Federalism will lose. The states have the right to legalize marijuana, or whatever else they want.
Treat marijuane like alcohol.
Prohibition was a failure a century ago and is still a failure.

Kind show’s the true spots of that L.I.F.E.R. “law enforcement” predator, don’t it.
Of course not.
You write the headline first, and then cite only those sources that support it.
This is how modern journalism works.
Not for long.
After we lose MAGA over Sessions' 80s-era crusade against marijuana, the Democrats who retake Congress and the White House will roll it all back.
>>Cite car accidents, opioid epidemic, rule of law as reasons for support
LOL. The real reason is more funding, better military hardware, and more opportunities to kill citizens to save them from drug abuse.
Somebody must think they can win elections with “law and order” posturing on marijuana like the Republican criminal justice-law enforcement bureaucrats in Washington.
Pot is no good, I wouldn’t just it just like I used to mess with alcohol.
But its best that I make the choice not to indulge rather than government crackdown.
It just gives the law enforcement-criminal justice bureaucracy justification for their existence.
Sessions has done absolutely nothing about Hillary and Russia BS. Yet he has time to bust pot smokers.
I personally dont smoke pot. I have prescriptions for about 8 years for relatively mild opiates. I hate them. If I miss one pill I start to go into withdrawal. I would use my states medical marijuana laws and try it, but for one thing. I can take all the legally prescribed opiates the doctor writes for me, but I get one canabis prescription and I lose my constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
Having one elected official issue an edict saying that the law will no longer be enforced is not the same thing as legalizing the thing in question. That’s got elements of, ironically enough, totalitarianism. To keep the scheme going they are setting up the situation that a person with xyz opinion MUST be elected regardless of what their qualifications or lack of qualifications are for the job. There are certainly going to be plenty of elected officials who will go along with that because it is an easy hurdle for them to cross. In this case, the former elected official is in the pot distribution business himself, so what do you expect his view to be of the issue?!
It’s still amazing to me that as a people, we at one time thought it necessary to pass a Constitutional Amendment to prohibit alcohol, and shortly thereafter, did not have to do so to prohibit MJ and other drugs.
Amusing. The Liberals had an huge celebration tearing down Confederate monuments. They as always show themselves to be hypocrites. If they don’t like a federal law, the South Carolina states rights advocates, they simply declare it effectively null and void in their jurisdiction be it sanctuary areas to contradict Federal immigration law or marijuana marketing to defy Federal drug laws. Pro lifers should try that tact with judicial abortion decrees. It would appear that this country no longer has a reasonable social consensus based on commonly held values. Look out. A modern Fort Sumter is on the horizon.
Guaranteed this is about property seizures.
