If the only history people learn is what is spoon-fed in public school, they've probably missed out on the part where northern states would capture escaped slaves and send them back to their owners. They've probably missed how northern states that were supposedly "free" wouldn't allow blacks to live within their borders. Everyone wants to turn up their noses at the South, but if you're…

Keep it up people we are setting a precedent and its only as matter of time before the stars and stripes have to be removed/changed due to protest from native Americans, or Al Sharpton (lets be honest the north had slaves just like the south). After that its the Union Jack for centuries of persecution against the scots Irish, and on and on and on. Hell my mere existence as a white male could be offensive…

Illinois investors jump into marijuana business

1 year ago from the Associated Press

Implementation of the Illinois law is still months away

From from the Associated Press:

Investors around Illinois are jockeying for positions in the marijuana business as they wait for the state's new medical marijuana law to kick in. And some of them are politically connected.

According to the Springfield bureau of Lee Enterprises ( http://bit.ly/TYXDPd ), Sam Borek has reserved at least three-dozen marijuana-related business names. Borek was a college roommate of the legislator who sponsored the law, Democratic state Rep. Lou Lang of Skokie.

Those companies have names like Illinois Medical Marijuana Sales Inc., Illinois Cannabis Realty Inc. and Cannabis Medical Centers of Illinois Inc.

And then there's David Rosen of Chicago. He was Gov. Pat Quinn's chief fundraiser in 2010 and also raised money for Hillary Rodham Clinton and Al Gore.

Rosen has filed paperwork to open a medical marijuana business in Nevada called Waveseer. But he's registered that business name in Illinois, too. Rosen's investors, according to state records from Nevada, include a number of Quinn donors.

But Borek says he has already run into a potential hurdle.

"We've got some checks to invest from investors and we can't deposit them," he said.

That's because banks have so far turned him down when he tried to open checking accounts. He said the banks are worried about possible penalties under federal law if they do business with marijuana growers and sellers.

He believes he might be able to remedy the problem by removing the word "marijuana" from business names.
