Learning to Learn Again

learn.1

Humans are often paralyzed by their own education. We have a tendency to quit learning once we think we know something. I am the worst at this. I hate revisiting my education and relearning things.

But this is very necessary to succeed in the human experience. We must not stop learning…..ever.

It is humbling to come to understand that we are not as smart as we thought we were. When we consider ourselves to be educated on a certain subject, we move from a desire to learn about it, to a false sense of security on the subject that discourages further learning. It is unfortunately human nature.

We miss out on a lot of learning by the assumption that we are already educated and do not need to take the time or energy to learn anything else.

Where cannabis legalization and freedom are concerned, there is a lot that has been learned and assumed; but there is still SO much more to figure out.

The most interesting thing to consider when looking at cannabis and the cannabis market is that this is a rapidly evolving beast right now. Everything we beileve we know about cannabis this very minute is likely to change in the coming months and years. The systems in place now for producing and distributing cannabis will cease to exist and will eventually be replaced with a more robust and commercialized market. That is inevitable.

In the current market, at least where it is semi-legal- but also where it is not, retail is king. The retailer controls the market and serves as a gatekeeper to the public.

Why? Because most of the companies producing cannabis have a hell of a lot to lose and choose to fly under the radar. You usually do not know the name or the company that produced the weed you are smoking. There is no heavily branded product market where marketing and demand fuel the marketplace. But you can be sure that it will one day…and likely soon.

Everything we know about the price of cannabis will evolve as the black market ceases to exist. Right now there is a very inflated market price that considers risk into the equation.

Risk limits supply. A lot of growers keep it to 99 plants, but what happens when the risk is gone and farmers are growing tons of weed in the light of day with no risk of prosecution? What happens to the price then?

It drops as supply increases. But how will the entire crop of outlaw farmers who have spent years getting thousands for their pounds do when that number becomes hundreds? Hopefully grow ten times as much.

There will be a lot of folks who will fail to evolve and who will get crushed by the market because of their failure to learn and understand the changes that we are all going to be facing.

If we can learn to learn again, we might just make it. If we do not see the writing on the wall and refuse to learn, we will become dinosaurs….extinct.

I personally have made a conscious effort to wake up in the morning, look myself in the mirror and tell myself, “You don’t know shit.”

When I start from there I can set myself up for more learning and understanding. I have no intention of letting my own education, and what I think I know, get the best of me….and you should not either.

  1. To all who favor freedom,

    Our nation watches and the resolve builds to end Marijuana Prohibition in the United States of America.

    We have to keep the pressure on our government to decriminalize marijuana.

    Please sign the new whitehouse petition,

    http://wh.gov/lOmFK

    Decriminalize marijuana, and pardon all marijuana convictions. Over 100,000,000 U.S. Citizens have used marijuana.

    With over 500,000 marijuana arrests costing over $13 billion annually, and with more than half of U.S. Citizens favoring legalization the time is here to end marijuana prohibition.

    Marijuana prohibition is very costly to society, wasting billions of dollars and billions of hours in law enforcement, justice system and penal system time, it also destroys families and personal lives and futures.

    The effects of marijuana both physically and socially are less harmful than alcohol or tobacco, and adults should be entitled to make the decision whether or not to consume marijuana.

    It’s time to finally put an end to the criminalization of marijuana, This would not only allow our government to save billions of dollars, but could be a source of income and bring in billions of dollars in revenue.

    Please help to spread the word on any social media you can, we need this petition to go VIRAL!

    Thank you,

    RonM
