Why not shoot for the moon right? I bet this was a response to the news that there was legislation introduced in WA with a proposal to allow Producers and Processors to sell directly to the public and to allow big $$$ to flow into the industry. Why not let free market economics happen? Right?
Here’s a hypothetical (satirical) phone conversation I could see going down between between Ike’s and Main Street Marijuana:
Ian: “Hey Ramsey. You see that legislation where they are trying to allow producer/processors to sell direct to the public?”
Ramsey: “Yeah. And the other one where they are going to allow big out of state $$$ to flow in? That’s some real Cartel s%^t right there. Might start to cut into those nice retail profit margins we’ve been enjoying. Maybe it’s time we get out.”
Ian: “I know right! How about we try this then – Let’s put all of our Retail Shops up for sale for some crazy figure, say $50 million and see how people flip out.”
Ramsey: “Yeah, sure great. Let’s do it.”
…and we’re now off to the races.
