A WORLD OF WEED: HOW THE BUSINESS COULD REALLY PAN OUT

the dope game

Growing up for me in the inner city, I would see guys selling drugs on the street corner. And one of those drugs was marijuana. And now that states are passing laws stating you are allowed to smoke in small quantities, even profit, makes you wonder. How will this business model pan out in the long run once big businesses start to get involved. Now you’re talking about a multi-billion dollar industry that is going to be controlled by few players. But also, what will come of all these prison inmates who were sent to jail for marijuana charges.

laws and current inmates

There are men and women currently in jail for crimes associated with marijuana. So what will happen to them once the laws are fully passed through? Will the courts grant them clemency, or will they have to serve their time considering they were convicted under an old law? Because to now say it’s totally fine, you’re allowing those legal access to sell, while individuals sit in jail for the exact same crime. Then again, states are fine with the drug, but federally, there are still problems. So dispensary owners and smokers beware.

big business

You could make a lot of money if you have the ability to enter the industry and you have a good enough liquid asset. Because getting in early means collecting before everyone can get involved. So once the big boys come in, everything will change because they will have the capital needed to keep you form competing. Then again, who has a good $250,000 plus lying around to start in the game.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography since 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my filmmaking.
