Ridiculous article

Though the author is correct that the will has little chance to pass (hope we're both wrong about that!), it seems ridiculous that its passing could affect the stock market.

The assumption made is that behavior of the investing public would change if the bill passes. This assumption is not valid because the passing of the bill would not suddenly spawn a whole new society of pot smokers. Those that would smoke, already do because it's so easy to get already.

Changing the laws to state level is not going to get non-smokers to suddenly acquire the desire to smoke.

But the article is correct... it would TOO American and sensible for the bill to pass -- that can't happen with our insanely out of control government we have to suffer with these days.

'Cause there's a monster on the loose
