Cannabis business: What marijuana legalization means for Illinois

Cresco Labs CEO and Charlie Bachteu and Alexis Keenan of Yahoo Finance discuss the process of growing marijuana and how legalization in Illinois is …


  1. I think the added temporary interneuronal synapse connections thanks to cannabis and especially the psychedelics are literal wiring upgrades to our brains that can be made permanent through normal neuroplasticity learning. These new connections give parts of our brains new access to both our current sensory perceptions, heightening them and making us more appreciative of everything we experience, while also giving parts of our brains new access to memories making even our memories heightened with literally new mental perspectives on them (explaining ‘flashbacks’). It’s like a physical empathy, giving our brains the ability to have new and more diverse perspectives on everything, past and present.

    These substances widely have the reputation as creativity-enhancers but I think actually they’re empathy-enhancers creating new perspectives, giving artists greater ability to imagine how a wider audience will perceive their work while it’s in progress, making it more creative as a result.

    Legalize, release, expunge and give industry advantages to the minorities most harmed.

  2. don't forget how they chop up all the leaves on the plant, and use it as the majority of the shake they are selling. but anyone who knows anything about pot knows that leaves are not shake, shake is what falls off the buds and left in the bottom of the bag. the cresco owner is laughing all the way to the bank, as they are screwing the medical user, since they have gone legal retailers are letting the recreational users buy up all the stock. i went to the dispensary yesterday and stood in line only to find I had 2 choices, one ways 20 dollars a gram and the other was a 1/4 oz for 160 dollars. well I went with the 20 dollars a gram stuff, only to find I could only buy 1 gram. I am too god damn sick to be standing in lines, only to find that it has all been a waste of time and energy!.

  3. Despite cripplingly high taxes, the state's always broke. Prediction: It'll take two seconds for every dime of this swag to magically disappear while these unaccountable corrupt hacks scheme to get into another racket now that they've covered gambling and dope.
    Next up? Prostitution, and after that, kiddie porn.

  4. It means extremely high prices for flower at dispensaries and everyone will continue to get it from there guy down the block for 1/2 the price.. lol at least it's legal now

  5. People if you are not allowed to grow your own you need to all write and call your politicians and let them know they will not be elected again until they allow home growing…

  6. I had Cresco pre rolls and anything with a THC above 30 will send you into severe psychosis (warning). You know, a feeling of doom, terror, extreme paranoia, involuntary muscle and hand movements and auditory / visual hallucinations. Not fun, very scary.

  7. I saw a million times on COPS they pull over a black guy or some meth head white dude, would say they smell marijuana, then search the car, then find it, and arrest them and charge them. And now soccer mom's teachers, doctors, and any mainstream suburbianite can walk in and buy marijuana in a store, people don't make any sense.

  8. Illinois just got stupider.
    Marijuana makes one stupid in the first place. Mix that with their gun violence problem and it be bound to end up being marijuana war zone with even more violence.
    If you think it won't happen then you're already stupid.

  9. No one is getting 33%return on concentrate production that is false information the best and most consistent i have seen so far is 20 to 25% max 27%. So saying 1 pound will creat a 3rd pound rosin is false

  10. i know my comment might go unnoticed but can we try to boycott this company their making money of off all the people the locked for this and now a white man is running the fucking drug game lets not keep giving business to these wankers who lock us up for using it

  11. Won't stop the private growers because they'll be selling cheaper and more than likely much higher THC content. The licensing is to squeeze out the small grower who will cut in on product taxation loss from the state. Just like moonshine whiskey they will still go after the small grower so the state monopolizes the market.

  12. If you look at the states that legalized it, they are States that are leftist liberal. Again these states are the ones that want to push the rest of the country, weather they want it or not, in leftist liberal socialist agenda's. Also the majority of those States are on the coasts. Coincidence???

  13. I'm a big fan of this Co. Unfortunately, the Cannabis space has had a brutal 2019. To see this promising sector fall, as the market flies, is a real bummer. I believe things will turn around or, at least, the blood loss will end soon.
