Mall of the Marijuanas

It seems as though there was a small fortune in pot growing at Mall of the Americas in Miami. Check out this dazzling report.

    Only in America, “chronic” entreprenuerialism.

    So has the food court been racking up record sales? Think retail synergy here.

    We don’t smoke marijuana in Muskogee;
    We don’t take our trips on LSD
    We don’t burn our draft cards down on Main Street;
    We like livin’ right, and bein’ free.

    I’m proud to be an Okie from Muskogee,
    A place where even squares can have a ball
    We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse,
    And white lightnin’s still the biggest thrill of all

    We don’t make a party out of lovin’;
    We like holdin’ hands and pitchin’ woo;
    We don’t let our hair grow long and shaggy,
    Like the hippies out in San Francisco do.

    And I’m proud to be an Okie from Muskogee,
    A place where even squares can have a ball.
    We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse,
    And white lightnin’s still the biggest thrill of all.

    Leather boots are still in style for manly footwear;
    Beads and Roman sandals won’t be seen.
    Football’s still the roughest thing on campus,
    And the kids here still respect the college dean.

    We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse,
    In Muskogee, Oklahoma, USA.

    Hmmmm – a bunch of plants worth millions of $$$$ in a retail space where the highest paid person makes less than a $100 K. I wonder why people would do such a thing?

    You want to end this atrocity right now? Legalize personal growing and use. Plants that are worth $5000 a piece are now worth the same as a tomatoe plant. It’s called prohibition and we know who got rich and powerful from that monumental mistake.

    In the meantime, workers from AF, Gap and American Eagle will continue to have plantations on the second floor of their mall.

    BTW – I do not smoke grass, I’m just tired of a drug war against a plant that costs ME more than $5 billion a year. Money well spent.

    Kind of ironic that there have been similar cases of controlled environment gardens, and many get caught for the drain/theft of electrical service.
    Similar case in NY last year with huge warehouse near Shea Stadium.

    Who is really getting high on Marijuana? The ones who smoke it, or the cowboys who wage the war on it to the tune of billions each year?? Its a recreational drug equivelent to a Coors Light and is far less destructive than a glass of Scotch. And with minimal training you can drive behind it! Just go slow and keep the twinkees in your lap.

    WHAT???? LEGALIZING Marijuana as the answer to the budget deficit? Next you’ll want to legalize professional hits, prostitution, money laundering along with the other crimes and misdemeanors as another avenue for capitalism.

    Wait, how did the American Indian get in this conversation? You want to heap on their nations additional disrespect by asking them to provide drugs to society? This is how we assuage our collective guilt for breaking treaties for our own economic advantage? Even though the per capita income on reservations is about $12,000 per year, in many respects, their society is wealthier than our own.

    The only thing the youth movement needed to ‘CHANGE’ in the 60’s was their self serving values and their hairdos. Isn’t that where they got the emphasis on youth from: the media, starting with that blockbuster “Rebel without a Cause.” More like “Rebel Without a Comb.”
