My thought was that the people who make Cheetos, Funyuns, pretzels, and potato chips should start offering combo packs.  Why wait for the munchies to hit?  Just buy it up front and be ready...

B.A. just got their taxpayers sued.

Broken Arrow City Council approves $2,500 annual fee for medical marijuana businesses; lawsuit promised
Local attorney threatens lawsuit, claiming ‘governmental overreach’

The new rules include levying a $2,500 annual permit fee for commercial licensees, classifying dispensaries similarly to alcohol-related establishments.

“This is not recreational cannabis. This isn’t for fun.”
“This is for patients who need it, and what they’re doing by restricting these things is they’re taking patients’ medicine away from them.”

Is Walgreens classified as an alcohol-related establishment?
Does CVS pay a $2.5K annual fee to sell hydrocodone? 

Its not the city council's job to make moral judgements about medicine.

People keep wanting to push us towards a theocracy - BA is about as close as can be found nearby thanks to the two big cults in town, and this is what happens.  First Baptist and Rhema.

Expediency for the goal at hand over rule of law every time.

I don’t share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.

The Canadian cannabis producer Tilray became the first marijuana company to go public on the Nasdaq in July. Its initial share price: $17. As of a month ago, its price had about doubled, to around $35. But in recent days, Tilray’s stock has skyrocketed well past $200. The company is now worth more than $20 billion — more than American Airlines, Expedia, and pharmaceutical company Mylan.
