On the Federal level, the government has already given us a glimpse of the future of medical marijuana. They give it names like Sativex, or Epidiolex.
This non-solution costs the state absolutely nothing. It is a doomed experiment crowd-funded by the folks it is allegedly intended to help which, so far at least, has been a pretty apt description of legal weed as a whole.
While we understand people’s reluctance to step up and help to educate others during the darker days or prohibition, there is no denying that the hoarding of tech (technique and technology) definitely led to more than one home hash lab explosion or cultivation catastrophe that could have potentially been avoided.
Golly, it sure seems like they are trying to completely erase the entire bad memory of the failed Temporary license fiasco. Can you blame them? Selling weed in Cali should be like selling hot soup to Eskimos.
Unless you’ve been consuming five dried grams in silent darkness under a rock somewhere for the past 24 hours, you’ve probably seen the news that Denver, Colorado just ever-so-narrowly passed a voter-approved ordinance to effectively decriminalize the possession and use of psilocybin mushrooms in the Mile High City.

Imagine that you applied for a driver’s license with your state but in order to do so, you had to employ lawyers or consultants to help you through the application and then submit a fee of thousands (or tens of thousands) of dollars to your state along with that application.

What is happening with these temporary licenses is a travesty. Sen. McGuire calls SB 67 a Band-Aid, but this problem is a self-inflicted bullet wound to the foot and we’re not sure that the industry will be able to limp away unscathed this time.
There are certain industries that are just inherently geared for success based on some primal tap into our DNA as human beings. If you’re selling sex and/or donuts, for example, business ought to be pretty darn good and you’d think that the same would be true for selling legal cannabis…especially in California…
