The age of cannabis is coming: Farmsubsidies will shrink and the market will choose hemp instead of corn and sugar for ethanol. Medical advantages of marihuana are largely known, but big pharma doesīnt use it - because itīs too cheap. But we can see some changes evolving. Big government, special priviledges for corporate giants and drug prohibition will eventually disappear - probably because of government bankruptcies, but this doesīnt matter. Finally, the market wins!
There are already some small listed companies doing business in industrial hemp and medical marihuana.
