What is everyone so worried about corporate greed and blah blah blah. Its called capitalism. Yeah, there will be a lot of people with big dreams of owning multiple dispensaries. Let them build up there wealth and watch them be the first to get bent over by the feds. It will happen, don't you worry. Not to mention the provisions for growing your own and gifting marijuana will ensure that you can always find good organic marijuana.
