First Drive Through Dispensary Is Open In Colorado

First drive through dispensary is open in Colorado

PARACHUTE, Colo. — The first drive-thru pot shop in the country is opening in Colorado, just in time for the annual “high holiday” of 4/20.

The Tumbleweed Express Drive-Thru in Parachute in the western part of the state is holding its grand opening on Thursday.

Owner Mark Smith, 58, was a pawn shop man. He owned 23 of them and eventually sold them to EZ Pawn. With the cold hard cash in his back pocket, he headed west and landed in Parachute.

“I’ve been driving by the car wash building a lot. I talked to the realtor here in town and it was for sale. So, it seemed like the perfect fit,” Smith said.

Smith bought the old car wash and turned it into what he claims to be the only drive-thru marijuana dispensary in the world.

“It’s really a real estate issue,” Smith said. “This is not an easy business to do inside a normal building. You really need something structured for a drive-thru bay, and the car wash was ideal because it had drive-thru features to it.”

After Years Of Marijuana Being Cultivated In Small Plots Out Of Sight From The Authorities, California Cannabis Is Going Industrial.

After years of marijuana being cultivated in small plots out of sight from the authorities, California cannabis is going industrial.

SALINAS, Calif. — This vast and fertile valley is often called the salad bowl of the nation for the countless heads of lettuce growing across its floor. Now California’s marijuana industry is laying claim to a new slogan for the valley: America’s cannabis bucket.

After years of marijuana being cultivated in small plots out of sight from the authorities, California cannabis is going industrial.

Over the past year, dilapidated greenhouses in the Salinas Valley, which were built for cut flower businesses, have been bought up by dozens of marijuana entrepreneurs, who are growing pot among the fields of spinach, strawberries and wine grapes.

“This is cannabis meets Big Ag,” said Steve DeAngelo, the executive director of one the nation’s largest marijuana dispensaries, who last year founded Harborside Farms to supply the business.

If You Bought Marijuana Stocks on 4/20, You Could Be 4200% Richer

On April 20, also known as 4/20, or “Weed Day,” three years ago, recreational marijuana was illegal in all but just two states: Colorado and Washington. If an investor had taken a risky bet then on the nascent—and then largely taboo—industry’s growth and invested indiscriminately in a wide range of marijuana stocks, they would have, well, smoked the stock market.

Investors are more likely to buy marijuana stocks around the unofficial 4/20 holiday, according to data from investing app Robinhood. And those investors who bought 10 U.S. cannabis stocks back in 2014 would have reaped a 32% return on their portfolio—beating the S&P 500’s 25% jump, Trump Bump rally and all, in the same period. Had investors just picked the top-performing weed stock over that period, though, they could have made a return of more than 4200%.

Marijuana Stock Performance Since 2014

Company                        3 Year Return

1 GW Pharma 152%
2 Axim Biotech 114%
3 Cannabics Pharma 4,260%
4 Terra Tech -69%
5 Cannabis Sativa 10%
6 mCig -41%
7 United Cannabis -83%
8 General Cannabis -85%
9 Surna -93%
10 CV Sciences -94%

Growing The American Dream: The Family Marijuana Business

Growing the American Dream: The Family Marijuana Business

Today’s political climate means uncertainty for certain immigrants. But for many, America is still the country where dreams can be fulfilled and some local immigrant families are finding the pathway to achieve the dream is lined with rows of cannabis.

Even on the grayest Northwest day, Surjit Singh and his son, Sandip Saini, often put on sunglasses to go to work. It’s always bright and 70 degrees in the grow room of their 10,000-square-foot cannabis greenhouse, an unassuming building that towers behind Singh’s Indian grocery and convenience store, Intercontinental Foods, in central Bellingham.

An onlooker may guess it’s a storage facility, except for the curious fact that the large compost bin parked outside is always locked and under video surveillance. Inside, dozens of rows of marijuana plants, some standing more than 5 feet tall, soak in light from ultraviolet lamps. Workers use skin protection to prevent themselves from tanning as they work methodically down the rows, trimming leaves and checking buds for maturity.

Marijuana Legalization May Seem Remote, But The Thinking On A Potential Federal Marijuana Tax Is Getting Serious.

Marijuana legalization may seem remote, but the thinking on a potential federal marijuana tax is getting serious.

Taxing Cannabis to a certain level is a a great thing. For states like Colorado, Washington and Oregon. The taxes have brought in millions. This money changed the game. Even for those politicians who were hesitant of legalization. Money drive everything, well especially in this capitalistic nation we live in.

What to tax?

The 64-page bill, S. 776, and House companions H.R. 1823 and 1841, starts out problematically, taxing marijuana by price for a five-year transition period, but ends up brilliantly, with sophisticated weight-based taxes for the long run. A companion bill repeals the useful current tax on advertising.
