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.
