    It seems like a virgin business to get into... reminds me of the gold rush ?. You can farm everything, just leave some room for marijuana "cash is King"

    Could be a high demand, but all of your instructors would have to be well versed in many foreign languages----seems like not many drivers speak English any more.

    Good point. If I hire bilingual instructors I could possible charge more n be more attractive to newbies.

    Yeah, lol, for me it would be more of a lifestyle and doing what I enjoy and believe in rather than a way to pad the bank account. I'm just a simple girl.

    Woody may be on to something. This article states "The only thing more addictive than illegal drugs is tax revenue" and " We can't grow the stuff fast enough to sell it". This makes me think more and more states will be legalizing marijuana to get in on the piece of pie, as Colorado rakes in the dough.
    9 Things to Know Before Smoking Marijuana (Legally) in Colorado

    Unfortunately legal recreational marijuana will not be legal for truck drivers and they will still fail a drug test.

    However, if the claims made in the first article are accurate, drivers would be financially better off to go into the marijuana business.

    Me too Stan, I'm a fan of legal everything, with regulation of course, or folks would go nuts, its just more money for the gubment so they can take less from me, plus the cartells wouldn't have much stake in the trade anymore.

    All joking aside, I see marijuana as being the next huge money making business, as it becomes legal in more and more states. And, not just the weed itself, but anything related to it. With the majority of the population being from an era that openly indulged, I believe it will be an exploding market.

    "Wealthy individual investors already are tapping private equity firms for a bite of the potentially lucrative marijuana business."
