36. That's called "no repeat business" . . . on ALL fronts.

Businesses aren't IN business to make things that LAST.

I mean, if you had STRONG clothing, there'd be no need to return to Penney's or MalWart for more should it get torn or frayed for whatever reason like cheap-fiber shirts do.

Marijuana has very little addictive elements in it. Now how would good Republican tobacco barons profit from THAT? They're not in the business of keeping you relaxed . . . they're in the business of keeping you COMING BACK regularly. I mean, let's face it: a person doesn't smoke 15-30 joints a day because there's no need. I mean, there's no need to smoke 15-30 cigarettes a day, but you do anyway. Where would the profit margin be?

Not to mention you'd be stepping on the toes of Big Oil, Big Paper, Big Pharma, Big Tobacco, etc, etc, etc. You wouldn't want to be . . . BAD FOR BUSINESS, do you?
