So who else here plans to capitalize on the massive entrepreneurial opportunity when Cannabis is full blown legalized in Texas?

I'm wondering if anyone else has any valid sources of information about what kind of licenses might be required or what organizations would be the correct people to talk to.

Be it the city hall of our own respective cities (this is the best place I can think of to ask) or wherever it might be.

Thanks for your 2 cents mah dudes

Forget it, kid.

You think there aren't already people out there miles ahead of you with billions of dollars at their disposal?

LOL! No way that ever happens. Texas hates weed almost as much as it hates queerosexuals....

Beyond what you'd need to be a retailer? Nobody knows, the legislation doesn't even exist yet.

Getting chummy with your city government, especially chamber of commerce is a good start, as well as any agency that is most likely to regulate cannabis. Any local entrepreneurial/business ownership groups for your area are a must. Cannabis activism groups are also a must, given they're your best bet at actually having a business.

There are a lot of sharks in the cannabis industry looking to dupe small business owners, so take any "cannabis industry" event with a grain of salt, as you don't want to be penned in with a bunch of sheep. If you can network within the existing cannabis industry, then you'll be leaps and bounds ahead of anyone who hasn't.

Appreciate the input, I think talking with existing shop owners is a great idea, will probably be giving someone a call sometime this weekend and try and make a friend.

Do you think I'm stupid enough to think there won't be competition?

Lol.....it is kind of a slow state when it comes to social issues, surprisingly Harris county (The entirety of Houston and some surrounding areas) has decriminalized possession of less than 4 ounces. Just take a class and don't go to jail.

If we've already made it that far I have no doubt in the next 3-5 years we'll start to see the first medical/possibly rec shops.

Texas just needs to make it a personal freedom and "God created it, who is man to ban it" issue and they'd be all over that shit in no time.

Or just compare it to gun ownership somehow

I don't think weed will be legal in all of Texas anytime soon unless it gets legalized federally. I think what is more likely to happen is that it gets legalized in some of the more liberal cities/counties, like Austin or Houston/Harris county.

You'd be surprised how much of Texas is liberal. It's usually the backwater counties that are conservative. I wouldn't be surprised if the major cities like Dallas, Houston or Austin legalized in the near future a la Washington D.C.

I forgot exactly the term the DA used, it's not exactly decrim, just using their discretion on what to pursue. Dallas also has a similar program as Houston as well, happened like a month or two back, not too long.

Better yet...
Convince them that weed makes you less likely to have an abortion.
