He founded a successful business, served two terms as a Republican governor of New Mexico and climbed Mount Everest. Now, Gary Johnson has set his sights on marijuana. Nevada-based startup Cannabis Sativa Inc. announced Johnson as its new president and CEO on Tuesday, and he sees the potential for explosive nationwide growth. "I don't know if I'm the Bill Gates of marijuana, but we might be the Microsoft of marijuana," he said. "The whole country is going to legalize marijuana in 10 years, and then so goes the world."

The company's first product is a marijuana-infused lozenge, which Johnson says he's tried several times. "It's very, very pleasant," Johnson says. "Rather than a go-to-sleep marijuana, it's a clean-your-house marijuana."

That's not marijuana. That's cocaine.

You're thinking of Silicon Valley and ignoring the arts, among other things.

Arts?

you mean like hobbies? Aren't potheads normally good at that stuff?

I was just glad about the taxes. Taxing pot was probably the only way you were ever going to get most of those people to pay taxes.

He's a narc, lol.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch...

"A Bible-quoting state senator and a coalition of residents tired of living in fear plan to begin circulating petitions Monday to get marijuana legalization on Oklahoma's November ballot.

The proposed initiative would legalize possession of up to 1 ounce of marijuana by adults 21 and older – or 1.5 ounces for doctor-approved medical use – and establish a regulated market similar to those in Colorado in Washington. It would allow residents to grow up to six plants at home.

The measure would also make Oklahoma the first state to authorize marijuana exports to other jurisdictions that allow medical or recreational marijuana, though implementation of that proposal would likely depend on the Justice Department's response.

State Sen. Connie Johnson, a Democrat running for U.S. Senate, is spearheading the ballot effort. Her pitch emphasizes farm jobs, diminishing the societal harm of incarceration, saving – and earning – taxpayers money and opening medical treatment options.

In Oklahoma a second conviction for possession of any amount of marijuana is a felony that comes with a possible 10 years in prison."

Pot is going to be legal everywhere soon. What state is going to miss out on those tax revenues?

Unproductive?!? Clearly you've never seen a stoner with pot and nothing to smoke it out of!

Dunno, have a friend who's wife smokes MJ and then goes on a cleaning rampage. Doesn't give her munchies, doesn't make her sleepy, just makes her want to clean...and clean...and clean. I've seen museums that were more cluttered and dirty than their house.

Everyone else I know that smokes generally either gets giddy, sleepy/mellow or both.

they're using Sativa strains instead of Indica, that is all it is.

Pot will be legal everywhere one day. And rich, well-connected white guys like Gary Johnson will make money hand over fist. I'm sure all the black and brown people in prison now on marijuana convictions will appreciate the irony.

This guy is why the word ------ has dual meaning.

What's "ironic" about white people waiting for something to be legal before they engage in selling it?

The "Microsoft of marijuana"?

So...

It's harvested and released too early, wholly over-priced and full of bugs?

I've tried cannabis vista. Sometimes I get high, but all too often I don't feel any effect at all.
And the headaches...oy!
