Weed will be legalized

Weed will be legalized in Norway, Sweden, The UK or Germany within four years, then the rest of northern europe will follow shortly. There is also a high chance that other recreational (think: LSD) drugs will be legalized in such countries after weed has.

I have what could be considered insider information, but im not directly involved in decision making, so the obvious question is: How do I (we) best capitalize on this?

I hope you are right, but that sounds far-fetched. I live in Norway and it's one of the most conservative societies in the western world with regards to drugs. I mean, protein power used to be illegal here. Last time I heard a significant discussion with regards to the legality of anything was the push to ban energy drinks like Red Bull.

I am against drugs but I would appreciate the legalization of marijuana weed shit.

Even if you don't set up a legal weed drug store and make money through selling it, every nation will feel the amount of money saved when the state doesn't have to spend billions on war of weed smoking teenagers.

E.g.:
If you get caught with weed, let's say little dose (1gramm), you're brought to police shop, they take mugshots, write a report, someone reads it and the prosecutor closes your case because its to less to put you in prison.
Think about the money the state wasted to not hold you responsible for drug abuse. I estimate it's round about 5000€ if you sum up everyones hourly wages.

Imho another good argument pro legalization is that a nation can license the weed shops and make money through taxes. Even weed users could profit if there will be garanteed quality.

Imo it's a win-win for everyone if it gets legalized.

That's why it's being legalized. It's less dangerous than tobacco, which no one wants outlawed, and instead of burning money trying to "fight" marijuana "addiction," the state can just profit by taxing the sale and licensing dispensaries.

I agree. Though certain drugs (probably not weed, though im not expert on this topic), do have medical uses.

Nice ancient poll polled on one party (that has a high chance of collapsing) in one country.

It proves nothing at all.

Really every party which will get over 5% is against legalization.

I forgot to tell you my thoughts about how to make money with it. And I don't really have an answer to this. But I think it hardly depends on two factors:
1) The way it will be legalized.
--> Will it be ultra restrictive or like the coffee shops in Amsterdam?
--> Will people have to registrate for weed consumption and will there be disadvantages like a revocation of a driving license?
2) Who will be the market participants.
--> Will big criminal players build cartells?
--> What qualification will be needed to run a business. E.g. if you want to sell weed-drug.thingy-cookies, will you need to have a degree in weed study or does every housewife will sell it like tupper?

weed probably doesn't have medical use
even though it has been shown to reduce pain, relieve anxiety, and inhibit cancer growth
Medical marijuana is mostly a farce but not because there are no medical benefits.

@Emberfire
Here in the US, you need a card for medical marijuana, and you need a prescription from a doctor to qualify for it. I think that anyone can buy it in Colorado, though, where recreational marijuana is legal.
Dispensaries are heavily regulated everywhere afaik though.

For germany the legalization could become real if they get a red-(red-)green coalition in september 17.

The greens are an essential partner for Gabriel (vice chancellor) and their party leaders have made clear statements his party is absolutely pro legalization.

Cem Özdemir showed a weed flower in an ice bucket challenge video. He denied it was his but said he doesn't think it's a bad thing to smoke weed.

Also it's in their parties program.

Furthermore: if s.o. plans to enter (or even build) the eventually comming german future weed market, he or she should have an eye on german politics. Also I guess if they are legalizing, most european countries will follow.

ffs this meme needs to stop on Veeky Forums

Weed is called weed because it's a weed. It holds NO value in terms of agriculture because it takes NO skill to grow.

Bla bla bla fucking sik hydro setup bruv, $$$ warehouse, huge capital yeah bruv brings in da bux!!!

Yeah that, or just grow shit quality shit in your backyard for free

The instant it's legalized, it's lost ALL inherent value because the only value it had was due to it being illegal

I can believe the weed part, but class 1 drugs will take a few more years or even decades after weed.

Countries can barley support their economy. There isn't anything really pushing it, as technology is the only thing for the last 5 decades that's pushed this global economy.

My personal opinion is that either the rest of the world will legalize or America will legalize, having the rest follow. It makes sense to legalize something that will bring in billions of dollars through taxes. Colorado for example had too much taxes at the end of the year, that it had to be return to the public from what I've heard.

It just makes sense.

If LSD becomes legal start selling microdose blotters as performance enhancers, at slightly higher cost per µg than regular tabs.
Shit is a nice little niece.
People in research and entrepreneurs will be all over it, since I hear it's a great way to boost your creativity and boost your mood.
Could be the new adderall.
Problem with normal sized tabs is to microdose you need to cut a 1/4 inch squared tab into about 8 pieces, which is inexact and fiddly.

less dangerous than tobacco
sure, but personally i'd rather get cancer and die ten years earlier than i would have smoking cigarettes than smoke weed and turn into a useless burn-out. btw, taking care of useless burn-outs for 40+ years is far more harmful to the state than more people dying of lung cancer
"addiction"
you're putting parenthesis around the word addiction, and i'd like to know why. you realize there are very noticeable withdrawal symptoms? that the body does become dependent on the substance? what kind of pseudo-intellectual bullshit have you been reading?

It's so easy to get a card, even if you don't have one of the MANY conditions that qualify you for one, that for many people it's just the same as if recreational marijuana was legal except they can't grow their own.

In Norway, people caught with user doses get fines, which they can choose to accept or take the case to court. I've never heard of anyone taking it to the court, because the punishment is greater and there isn't a good chance you'll be let off the hook.

I think the fine is around $700, and unless they catch you on the street (very unlikely, unless you're a retard) they usually just bust homes they know people use as a gathering place.

I sincerely believe that since nobody except bigger retailers go to jail, that the state profits from the weed community already.

But the consensus among politicians is nowhere near legalization yet. Luckily

everyone who smokes weed becomes permanently lazy and worthless forever
Useless burn-outs are already using it. It's not going to magically make casual users into worthless stoners and it's most likely going to be less popular with kids after it's legalized.

you realize there are very noticeable withdrawal symptoms?
Marijuana is psychologically addictive but only for heavy users. Withdrawal symptoms are irritability and marijuana cravings. Only 9-10% of users get addicted, which is even less than alcohol.

need to separate male plants from female if you want to maximize bud size and density, while keeping it all from just going to seed.
certain strands are more finicky
(no inherent value) people still buy name brand beer and spirits instead of just backing their own backyard swill.
people will pay for consistent quality of product. (and because people will slap a brand name on it)

I used to smoke weed all the time, I don't crave it at all, I mean sure I would have some if it was legal. But right now I can't. I didn't get addicted to it, like most people get addicted to alcohol or smoking.
