You may have the basis for a case under the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
The insanity goes on and on like this. How can a govt literally pick the winners in a market based on race? Shit ain't right.
I am currently putting together an application for a "craft grower" license. It is an incredibly extensive and expensive process.
Between the onerous fees and the less than desirable climate,
CBOEtrader says I am currently putting together an application for a "craft grower" license. It is an incredibly extensive and expensive process.For the purposes of the application, you identify as a gay black woman.
Someone should sue. This can't be right. The qualifications are 1) non white, cis, able male 2) made less than $750k last year. Then if they accept you as a "social equity" candidate, your substantial fees are cut in half and you are allowed to apply for zero % loans. Oh, AND they prioritize your application with ONLY 40 AWARDED!!!!
Too little too late. Chicago has had some of their largest population losses in last few years. This won't keep people from leaving. In California the exorbitant fees to grow legally are sending the entire industry underground again.

Well, to sue, requirement 1 would need to be true and not some made up bullshit. Goes to show you can't believe everything you read on the internet.
The "app" being that since the product is not grown, the laws on pot do not apply to the sellers of synthetic THC.
I'm 100% on board for the legalization, but they've fucking botched the licensing part of this to epic proportions.
RafiMaas saysWell, to sue, requirement 1 would need to be true and not some made up bullshit. Goes to show you can't believe everything you read on the internet.Rafi, unfortunately this one is true. It's been mentioned almost every morning on the news (god damn wife likes the tv in the bedroom) here in Chicagoland. Minorities will 100% get preferential treatment, lower fees and no interest loans. WGN and the local NBC affiliate are all reporting this live on air.I don't like the doling out of college acceptances or stuff like this based on race at all, but I'm more pissed about the money portion. JB wants to pump the income tax, and then wants to discriminate on collecting fees from what are likely wealthy minorities anyway. They can pay the full boat and still survive. So now more money needs to be found for our pension crisis (not that these licenses would come anywhere close to...
BigFrank saysBetween the onerous fees and the less than desirable climate,The hemp farmers are growing outdoors in IL. Curious to see how they do. I'll bet they can only get 1 good crop/year though I've heard them suggest they can do 3. I know a guy doing 150 acres of hemp. Says he is $3 million into it, and expects to make $8 million in revenue if things go well... Your feedback may be accurate for hemp farming in IL (or any state). Hemp (CBD oil) is a national free-ish market. Cannabis industry in IL is highly protected by state. There won't be any outdoor cannabis grows in IL. There is no opportunity to get in years later. This is a competition to be chosen as 1 of the 135 total growers licenses to be awarded in IL. There wont be any more. The entirety of the $2 billion/yr Chicago market will be divided between the owners of those licenses.Waiting it out is not an option. Ei...
They care about SOCIAL EQUITY
I don't see anything wrong with it. Minorities were disproportionately harmed by Cannabis Prohibition and the War on Drugs
I don't see anything wrong with it.
There's plenty of good reasons that most growers don't use autoflower chemovars. They are nothing new
And so minorities who are disproportionately harmed by laws against murder should....?
BigFrank saysI don't see anything wrong with it. Nothing wrong with directing public funds towards individuals based on skin color. No problem at all.BigFrank saysThere's plenty of good reasons that most growers don't use autoflower chemovars. They are nothing newBullshit.Autoflowers have only matched THC potency in the last 2 to 3 years.Growers use photoperiod strains for the cloning process control and (until about 2 years ago) for the higher THC and more variety. There is a reason why banana farms have gone from 250 trees per acre, to 1750 dwarf banana plants per acre. Now that THC levels are equivalent, and feminized seed production is a snap, autoflowers are the best way to mass produce THC. Half the time to harvest, far better for a perpetual harvest indoor farm.And...
You didn't seem to have any issue with directing public funds
BigFrank saysYou didn't seem to have any issue with directing public fundsI'm cool and all, but I don't have the authority to direct public funds bro.
My plan is to buy up one of the many failed entities that don't survive the next year or two
everyone jumps in and thinks they know it all, on paper.
The biggest differentiation comes from the terpene content, and while everyone knows what THC (and now CBD) is, there's another 100+ cannabinoids that will largely factor into differentiation in branded products moving forward.
I'm just pointing out the obvious, it's a sort of comeuppance to watch people whinge about how unfair it is that minorities are given special privilege during this legalization push, while they were never bothered that massive amounts of funds were targeted at harming minorities for decades with the Republicans War on Drugs.
We already are growing and selling Cannabis in Illinois, and it's top notch, dialed in, high test, so you better bring your A game!
It is an excercise of absurdity.
BigFrank saysWe already are growing and selling Cannabis in Illinois, and it's top notch, dialed in, high test, so you better bring your A game!You own one of the 35 medical licenses? Or are you talking about CBD?I began this journey to start a hemp farm. Then IL dropped the retail legalization news. Given my available food grade wharehouse plus immediate human resources in our management group make the cannabis license too perfect for us.
are all of a sudden now getting all triggered about racial disparity and an attempt to right the glaringly obvious wrong.
We're growing high CBD "hemp" flower already, and that's actually fetching a higher price point than 'marijuana'!
I like CBD because it’s a great wind-down at the end of a day
We're growing high CBD "hemp" flower already, and that's actually fetching a higher price point than 'marijuana'! Which will surely change with more competition, but in the meantime, I just
There's just a THC cap of 0.3%
my primary misgiving is the fact that it is a Medallion Scheme
