The puritanical conditioning of the amerikan mindset runs deep! God forbid that we might experience a few brief moments of euphoria, rather than the government supported, media induced fear of all the monsters out there!

Default Molson Coors Could Tap Canada's Marijuana Industry For Infused Beverages

https://www.benzinga.com/news/18/06/...used-beverages

"Canada is set to legalize recreational cannabis nationwide on Oct. 17. The Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce projects that the market could be at large as $6.5 billion by 2020.

With that date soon approaching, Molson Coors could be looking to make a move as fast as possible. One source familiar with the discussions told BNN Bloomberg a deal could be reached by the end of the year."

Watch how quickly big biz will rush into Canada as weed becomes fully legal this year.

I tried to buy some stock in firms / mutual funds for MJ but my brokerage account at Wells Fargo won't let me due to the existing federal prohibition on banks taking any MJ related money. How's that for backwards thinking. Once Wall Street / Goldman Sachs games the playing field to their benefit then the flood gates will magically open....

Shoppers Drug Mart, a large cross country drug store chain, also wants in on the act. It will depend though on how each province or territory on how it can be sold. Government liquor stores also want in on the act in some provinces. In BC all non-medical cannabis will be distributed through the current liquor distribution system. Meaning, Shoppers Drug Mart etc, in BC will get theirs through them.

It's official: "The Food and Drug Administration on Monday approved the first drug derived from marijuana, which will be used to treat two rare and severe forms of childhood epilepsy."

Spot on, once the banking and pharmaceutical cabal have control all bets are off on any normal investor getting seriously involved.

Sad thing is that Cannibus does help several medical conditions, but once it is managed via big business, and is scheduled and controlled...it may not be approved for certain conditions via your insurance company.

The price might rise to the point that it is unaffordable to the average person to purchase as well

Nope, we'll be here specifically to annoy those that are annoyed by them. As a 50+ year cannabis consumer, I'll consider it my mission.
