    AFAIK, he is the only cat to smoke a beezy on the roof of the White House. A great man indeed.

    Can't figure out why they haven't made Willie King of Texas - officially, that is.

    Mmmmm....Isn't smoking pot in Texas still treated as a felony? California boy here where it is no big deal.

    The quality of marijuana that would drive two, prominent Nashville singer songwriters to pen the gem "I'll Never Smoke Weed With Willie Again"...:thumbsup:

    Yes and no. Small amounts are not a big deal. J don't know the cut off, but it isn't like it used to be. A Dallas stripper named Candy Barr got life in the late 50s for two joints

    The Green Rush in Colorado is evolving rapidly as companies jockey for position in a young but high income industry. It's a bit like the 90s Dotcom boom. Branding is now the big thing because, when new markets open up, companies want to move in and be the Starbucks of weed. Bob Marley has his own weed Fine Cannabis Products & Accessories - Marley Natural. Silverpeak in Aspen, CO only caters to millionaires and billionaires Silverpeak.

    So that's what I think Willie is doing. Capitalizing on the brand equity of his name and reputation. Or more likely, someone offered him a buttload of cash to use his name. Look at all the free PR they've already gotten before they've even introduced their products. No other company in the weed industry has gotten that kind of free PR. Not even Dixie Elixers.

    I read that CO's weed decriminalization is still a mixed bag...please forgive the metaphor. Being that weed requires rules, regs, & licensing (RE: graft) which costs money + brick & mortar locales for regulatory inspections (graft-plus).

    The (traditional) dealer suffers none of these complexities and their price is not affected by such things as gov't graft thus, they are still where one goes to get product at market prices...resulting in the gov't bummed that revenues have not cascaded in like a Rocky Mountain avalanche.

    Good luck Willie. Just pay your fees and try not to be a loss leader.
