But I think dispensaries will make more money. It’s going to bring money from taxes instead of the black market. It will bring money for education and research and basically move the culture forward. It will be easier for new smokers who don’t have their network already figured out to get it. Local growers will be screwed, but there will be more money for schools. Maybe more ticket fines for outdoor smoking.
