DailyCaller? Really? Are we going to get this low? At least post a cached version so they don't get the sweet ad revenue.

Why would you post from the Daily Caller? You know that it isn’t very trustworthy.

But they posted a really anti-Semitic thing. I know the big sites aren’t trustworthy, but is it wrong to not trust an anti-Semitic site?

Link?

Liberal sites like the NYTimes and CNN support American imperialist policies that killed 42000 'civilians' (women and children) in Mosul, that just killed 1100 children in Yemen, and caused 600,000 people there to contract cholera, leading to more deaths and suffering.

By your standards we would have to ban all US corporate news sources.

You’re right. Sorry. I didn’t think about it in that way.

Nothing to apologize for, it's good to have a dialogue about these things.

This article is a very poorly written and researched screed.

Of course tobacco companies are are going to want to cash in, so are alcohol companies and pharma companies, and if they don't cash in pot will become as a big a business as they are all by itself through organic market growth.,

The main problem for them is pot is ridiculously easy to grow yourself, and ridiculously easy to cure and store it. Far easier than brewing your own alcohol, or making your own chemical drugs or curing and processing tobacco.

So as long as legalization always allows for individuals to grow 3-4 plants at home, as almost all states who have legalized have done, big business won't have any leverage and won't be able to monopolize the market.
