Have you folks noticed that there's more and more talk about legalizing the whacky weed?

Large interests are throwing the idea out, and they are beginning to "soften" and gauge public opinion to see if this will fly.

Who will benefit from this besides the government?

Starbucks? In the Netherlands, people smoke the Mary Jane in coffee shops.

Cookie makers? Pizza Delivery? Bong makers ("As Seen on TV")? Ronco (pocket pipe instead of pocket fisherman)?

Is this the only way out for California?

Will Mary Jane help the municipal bond market?

Can the makers of Copenhagen(TM) make a chewable Mary Jane in time for the World Series?

It's coming folks, get on the trend and get rich!

P.S. Should you only be able to smoke Mary Jane in Las Vegas or on Indian Reservations? "Me smok'em peace pipe"?

What's the investment play on this?

Just recently a tax client who is a retired state police detective and very strict law and order individual told me that he thought it was about time we started thinking about legalizing drugs. He didn't say what drugs but he did say drugs and I think he meant beyond maryjane.

He thought legalize it, tax it and we can control it.

Hold on. I don't know that we should legalize everything! Certainly not all at once! Some drugs are just too addictive (like tobacco (woops), and particularly Meth.).

But I think the decision has already been made to legalize marijuana in some significant way. Federal and state government, and big business have a lot to gain. It's just a matter of softening the public opinion, and floating trial balloons (which has already started).

My real question is what is the investment play? For instance, can the Marlboro Man(TM) be redesigned to flash a peace sign?

Or Toyota can push the fact that when you're on the weed you will drive so slow the brake problem will be minimalized if not entirely eliminated.
