Congress Accidentally Legalized Weed Six Years Ago.
When lawmakers voted to allow hemp production in 2018, they quietly opened the door to legal THC in all 50 states.
“For 25 years, we wore shirts that said rope not dope,” Jody McGinness, the executive director of the Hemp Industries Association, told me last year. “But out of left field, these products emerged, because the market is a force of nature.”

Industries this large can be corralled by regulation, but they’re tough to destroy. By the time Florida’s anti-delta-8 bill came across DeSantis’s desk, he had probably noticed the billboards begging him not to eliminate 100,000 jobs in the state. The high-on-hemp business, in other words, may already be too big to ban.

The state has been trying to bait local philanthropists into paying for this museum instead of using state funds like the big museums in OKC. Since we got the Gathering Place I guess they figure Tulsa can hold its own and they can just keep all the money in OKC.

This might be easier to accept if the museums (etc) around OKC also had to get 50% of their funding from private sources.

According to Blake Ewing (take that for what you will) the main issue is that the funding they have received so far does not cover salaries for the current staff efforts regarding acquisitions, marketing, etc. So those people have to be let go until the museum is fully funded and ready to move forward.

It sounds like they are reasonably confident they can get $18 million in local matching funds, so at least this thing has a chance of moving forward next year...

This stinks. I know a few of the folks affected. That was a serious hotbed of local talent. I get the feeling the state torpedoed us again.

Can't find a peep about it. The last big news about Enel in Oklahoma was the wind farm debacle... I hope that didn't bump their plans for this facility.

Yeah, all the news articles about it that I'm seeing are from 2023.  Mostly around May.  Hopefully, it's still in the works.

This looks to be a really cool project.  Hopefully, it will spark some investment along the newly redesigned 36th Street North.

I can't believe those buildings have been gone for a decade!  Wow, how time flies!  Hopefully, something will come of this.

It appears that Ti-Amos has purchased this property.

That's unfortunate. Seemed like a nice idea and a well meaning group behind it, but the limes are a bit handier and more fun.
