As Washington and all of its lobbyists, politicians and corporate backers gear up to stake massive claims in the emerging cannabis industry we have to remind ourselves of a couple of very important factors. Big business is, what big business has done. Capitalize, monetize, exploit and control markets at any cost. It’s unbridled growth with an insatiable appetite for absolute dominance. If this was any other industry, any other product it would surely be the beginning of the end of the life as we know it. Relax, we are talking about medical cannabis, not petroleum products, beef or pharmaceuticals.
