He should use the money to send guns to Mexican drug cartels.
As long as part of the return deal is more cash, churro's, rice and beans, and taco's. I have a serious craving for Mexican today. Hot Mexican pussy will do as well.
Wonder how much money the Mexican cartels have given to the Big Zero's reelection campaign? "whaa"
i find it funny that banks are afraid of legitimate business yet love to steal from people all the time.
So is the headline wrong? There is actually an "unofficial" bank willing to do business with these guys? I'm sure word will get around to the other dispensaries.
Get a bunch of dispensaries together, form a credit union, make more money that way.
With the amount of cash that is going through these dispensaries' hands (if they're run at all well), it shouldn't be all that hard to form a small credit union.
That's some great insight you've got there. You and the guy taking a shit on that cop car, both really know the ins and outs of high finance.
The reason why banks aren't working with these people is fear of retaliation from the federal government. And credit unions are even more at the mercy of federal authorities than banks, so I don't think that would work out so well.
Blame the federal government, not the banks. Once you give the feds leeway to violate the 10 Amendment, your ability to self-govern is drastically reduced.
Another thing... does anyone disagree that this may be one of Obama's dumbest moves approaching the 2012 election? He's not going to win over the conservative anti-drug types no matter one, and he's definitely going to be alienating his base.
Good point. He's already lost the right-center vote so I expect him to go after the lefty vote with stuff like gay marriage and making more of a stance on the medical marijuana issue as we get closer to the election. It's shaping up to be a pretty dismal Democrat turnout in 2012 without some key wedge issues.
And FWIW, the recent "crackdown" by the feds is primarily against dispensaries violating state and local laws. Selling within 1000 feet of a school, selling for a profit, selling to minors, and shipping marijuana across state lines to other dispensaries.
Not to mention the recent crackdowns on California dispensaries. I heard the Feds on the news talking about how terrible these operations are because their high profit margins take advantage of poor people trying to afford their medicine. Yet no one has busted down the front doors at Pfizer, GlaxoSmithkine, Merck or Eli Lilly.
They might be able to do that... but do you think Visa/Mastercard etc would accept payment from them?
i think a special session of congress needs to be called. one in which they all sit down and smoke a joint. then maybe these assholes will realize they're fucking morons for giving a shit about marijuana laws. we know it doesn't make black men **** white women. white women being hotter than black women is what causes that.
Oh, so I see, the women are the ones asking for it???
Fuck yeah those whores are asking for it.
