Entrepreneurs Needed to Sell Medical Marijuana

The fledgling industry tries to band together in response to Connecticut's legalization of medical marijuana.

Connecticut's medical marijuana law kicked into effect on Oct. 1 and although there's no way to purchase medication, some advocates are hoping to attract businesses to the state that will provide marijuana.

According to The Associated Press, the Connecticut Medical Cannabis Business Alliance has formed in order to help start the industry:

Eileen Konieczny, a registered nurse and medical marijuana consultant from Stamford, said she believes an alliance of medical marijuana businesses can help to educate Connecticut patients, doctors and the public about the benefits of the drug and the different forms of marijuana that can be used, ultimately combating the stigma of pot smoking.

The law allows a physician to prescribe marijuana to patients with "debilitating" conditions, such as cancer, AIDS, HIV and Parkinson's disease.

With the new law, some municipalities have changed their laws in order to add restrictions to the medical marijuana business.

Estimates show that marijuana is America’s number one cash crop. However, marijuana remains untaxed. This is a new source of income for our nation, an income we desperately need. Over 500 of the nation’s top economic professors have shared their opinion in supporting the removing the prohibition and imposing the taxation and regulation of marijuana as a way to slow the federal deficit. Ending marijuana prohibition would save the US $7.7 BILLION annually. That is nearly as much as Congress’ proposed Budget Control Act. Think of the jobs it would create, the court time I would save and the jail space it would free up for actual criminals. Sign the petition below. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_tUy6fylQs
