The future of the marijuana industry in Puerto Rico … really think about it!! Being facetious … but considering it!
Juan Bobo is in deep conflict over Puerto Rico’s new marijuana laws.
“Don’t get me wrong,” he told reporters in San Juan. “I love a doobie before lunch.” Still, Bobo sees a lot of danger for Puerto Rico under these new laws.
Agriculture needs a renaissance in Puerto Rico. It is currently only 1% of the insular economy, compared to 70% in the early 1900s.
But if marijuana leads the way in this process, and Puerto Rico makes a push for independence, it may be perceived as a “recreational” nation, rather than a hard-working people. For this reason other crops should lead the way.
Who really profits?
With agency heads shaking down contractors, and governors with their hand in everyone’s pocket, the growth of any major business in Puerto Rico, may require lobbyists and payoffs that are beyond the reach of working and middle class Puerto Ricans.
