I have been thinking lately of how this global money meltdown is going to affect cannabis trade. I have been watching price increases for pot and there is a huge amount of people getting laid off or cut back on their hours so money will be very tight. What happens in tight times?- growers are going to grow. The price of pot is going to go down since there will be a glut of product out there. The other side of that is the big grow operations in BC are going to be getting a huge influx of available workers. Other areas of the country will expand their operations. I suspect the same to be true in the States. The high cost of inputs for corn and soy will make Hemp a viable crop again and save a few farmers who are on the edge right now. With more industrial hemp and more pot product available everywhere, the hemp trade will stabilize and the pot prices will go into decline for a long time period. The growth of the spin off industries around cannabis will mean a lot of Mom & Pop hemp clothing, paper, food, oil and medicines will spring up. If they have to be an underground industry, so be it. it will go on non the less. The Cops will not have the manpower to keep up to it and when they start demanding more Taxpayer's mony to support the prohibition, there will be a taxpayer's revolt and many will step forth to show the common taxpayer the already high cost of incarceration. The people will force the local government to get the cops to do real policing and lay off the potheads. Can anyone see anything wrong with my logical conclusions?
