Re: “Up in Smoke

I don't know what you really want. Pot growers benefit from an inflated price by the fact that marijuana has been illegal. I would hope growers and sellers are putting away money and planning on the fact that they operate in a black market with little protection. The same would be true for a self-employed person. They don't get employer insurance or automatic social security deductions but they benefit from setting their own wages and generally making more money. Also, orchards of any type take years to establish while pot farms can operate on an annual basis. Loss of crop effects these industries differently.
