|Cannabis Domains Snapped Up In Case Of Re-Legalization|
|All of this has been given a fresh burst of intensity by next week’s vote on Proposition 19, the California ballot measure that would legalize up to an ounce of the drug for recreational use. Fourteen states have already legalized medical marijuana. |
“Marijuana domain name values will fly off the charts once Prop 19 passes,” said Mr. Faler, 49. “I’m hoping to make enough money to buy a condo in Morocco. That’s how big it’s going to be.”
|Domainers use various strategies when acquiring domain names. While Mr. Faler tends to register domains that struck his fancy at odd hours of the night, Jordan Zazzara of Long Island prefers the geographer’s method. With the help of a California map, Mr. Zazzara, 21, chose “geo-targeted” domains, registering ones that combined the state’s major city names with the words marijuana, weed, ganja, bud and cannabis. |

Ahhh . . the rush to gather in the presupposed "sure winners" . . in the latest version of domain goldrush. Once again lottery fever is setting in. (I noticed Mike B. was reg'ing quite a few the other day.)
It's always nice to think someone will get lucky and somewhow avoid having to run the course of their life on the "I hate my job" employment treadmill.
I'm sure that if it doesn't all work out as planned he can always roll up his domain receipts . . and smoke 'em. Ya never know. Maybe domain receipts contain hallucinogens. You might think so given the way some folks behave around domains . . :P
Not me, of course. No hallucinations here. Nooooo . . Very cool and rational . .
Domain sales will go wild if Google ever lets publishers put marijuana AdSense ads on their sites ( :^/ )
The image is a bad attempt to show someone smoking a joint :)
A lot of cannabis themed sites are displaying cannabis adsense ads today.
The ads are for things such as: setting appointments with doctors who offer written cannabis recommendations for qualified patients, cannabis dispensaries are advertising, also there's an organic farm that has been advertising deals on organically grown cannabis and they also grow other foods and herbs, also ads for ebooks on how to make money in the cannabis industry, also ads for hydroponic gardening shops, as well as "yes on prop 19" ads.
Cannabis as medicine and sacrament is in sort of a grey area today. Even cannabis for recreation is decriminalized in many parts of the the US, which is strange because it's like saying people can go ahead and consume it (smoking, vaporizing, drinking in tea, and baked into foods), but selling it is a different story.
I kinda see the medicinal, sacramental, and recreational uses of cannabis all tied together. If cannabis modulates a person's psychology so that they see things differently (shedding the cultural operating system) and it inspires them to laugh, well isn't laughter one of the best medicines? It'll be interesting to see Reverend Roger Christie released, and the sacramental context of cannabis will receive more light:
Already some dispensaries have online shops where pre-verified members can order cannabis online.
