:shocked:

"We're on track to do $130,000 in sales today," he tells me, requesting anonymity like the other unnamed sources in this article for fear of being targeted by federal law enforcement, state regulators, or prospective burglars. On an annualized basis, that equates to three times the productivity of an Apple store, which generates more than twice the sales per square foot of the next most productive retailer. Needless to say, in an almost exclusively cash-based business, that's a lot of dough.

It costs the best operations no more than $800 to grow a pound of marijuana that can then be sold through their own retail stores for upwards of $3,000 a pound -- dispensaries in Colorado must grow at least 70% of what they sell. That translates into more than $7 million in profit before taxes for a 20,000-square-foot

You would think the mob would step in and set up a "bank". Maybe they can take it to the check cashing place and have it put on a pre-paid Visa?
i read in another article place that they're doing something similar.... checking cashing place to get a cashiers check, which is then trying to be snuck into a normal bank.

So something like 20% of all $20 bills have cocaine residue on them, but money used to purchase pot is not allowed in the bank. That just seems funny to me.

“As has been well documented, I smoked pot as a kid, and I view it as a bad habit and a vice, not very different from the cigarettes that I smoked as a young person up through a big chunk of my adult life," Obama told The New Yorker's David Remnick. "I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol.”

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—President Obama is about to issue an executive order that would force all Americans to purchase a monthly supply of marijuana, the Fox News Channel reported today.

According to Fox’s Sean Hannity, who broke the story, Obama’s initiative is part of a broader plan to make weed available and affordable to every individual in the United States.

Under Obama’s plan, every American would be required to purchase a government-mandated amount of marijuana per month or face a penalty of up to two thousand dollars.

Hannity said that the President hopes to have the mandatory marijuana plan up and running by 2015, “but they’re still working on the Web site.”

Appearing on Fox, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) took issue with Obama’s recent remark that marijuana was no more dangerous than alcohol: “I saw that as an insult.”
