I read a bunch of articles on the history of marijuana, current events pertaining to MMJ and rec legalization, canna-business development, etc. and figured I’d start sharing a few of particular interest. Comments and discussion always appreciated! Recommend articles you’ve been reading. It’s a new industry and familiarity with the history, culture, and political-economy will supplement your business development.

Article: Inside Girl Scout Cookies (High Times)
There are some interesting marketing approaches that “The Cookie Family” are considering (e.g. selling male pollen rather than making seeds available for purchase)December 6, 2014 at 5:34 am #1656JohnnyKeymaster
Very interesting. Lets start thinking business; do you think some type of business can be made out of the second article? If so what do you think it would be?December 9, 2014 at 2:05 am #1659
I think their “Pollen Nation” idea of potentially selling GSC male pollen has a few interesting elements, the best of which is tha it enables novice growers and commercial growers, alike, the chance to experiment with breeding GSC crosses. So if a collective develops some new, stable, unique strains, they can sell access to a sort of database of their strains by packaging pollen and maybe developing breeding kits to simplify and speed up the breeding process. It’s also just interesting that they can kind of develop a real brand out of their strains.January 2, 2015 at 10:14 pm #1671
Hey everyone, there is huge potential in banking and merchant accounts for the medical and recreational states. This isn’t my area of expertise, but just an idea I figured I’d throw out there…I’ve seen several articles recently about the need for both merchant account providers and credit unions for growers. Obviously not a lot of people have the time and resources to start a bank, but what about developing a blog to provide information for growers, manufacturers, and retailers regarding how to legitimize their state-compliant businesses?
