So, I’m just going to say it:

From Drug Free

Studies show that the mental functions of people who have smoked a lot of marijuana tend to be diminished. The THC in cannabis disrupts nerve cells in the brain affecting memory.”


Studies in Australia in 2008 linked years of heavy marijuana use to brain abnormalities. This is backed up by earlier research on the long-term effects of marijuana, which indicate changes in the brain similar to those caused by long-term abuse of other major drugs. And a number of studies have shown a connection between continued marijuana use and psychosis.”

There is an abundance of information online supporting the negatives of marijuana use. You are more than welcome to search for data on your favorite search engine. It’s there.

So, what type of franchise in the retail space is thinking about launching a product…a marijuana-based product, that will kill your brain cells?


An E-Cigarette Franchise

That’s right: A franchise that already sells wonderful products is thinking about producing a marijuana-based oil that can be smoked through an E-Cigarette.

Is America really ready for this?

Would you  own a franchise  that sells an oil laced with THC? (The chemical in marijuana that creates the “high.”)

From an article on the Fox Business website:

The growing availability of legal pot opens the door for Tulsa-based Palm Beach Vapors to market a method for producing a cannabis oil product that can be inhaled through a common e-cigarette, according to CEO and co-founder Chip Paul.”

And, according to the Fox Business article, Palm Beach Vapors has already applied for a patent. So, the wheel has been put in motion.

Fact: Palm Beach Vapors does not ship, purchase or distribute marijuana. instead, according to Capital OTC, it licenses the preparation method and additive which produces a glycerol base (where cannabis oils are evenly distributed).

What do you think?

Should retailers sell this stuff?

Do you think marijuana…used recreationally, is dangerous?

Do you think the attorney’s at Palm Beach Vapors will be really, really busy if cannabis oil-production starts?

Do you think this idea is crazy?
