    You haven't answered my questions about clinical testing.
    You haven't responded to my request for the energy-related patent number.
    Your post above makes no sense - what PhDs? People who have them or who are studying for one? For clinical testing, or general research? What submissions are you talking about? And don't even get me started about the last sentence.

    You know what I do with this type of response to questions at work? I send them a 'thanks but no thanks' and close the file. :)

    Statistically between 2% and 3% of the population are Medical Marijuana Candidates. With a population of some 60 million people, the statistical number of MM Patients in the United Kingdom is in the range of 1,200,000 to 1,800,000. Given the labor intensive nature of the Medical Marijuana Industry, approximately 915 industry-wide jobs are required for every 11,000 patients. This equates to a job count in the range of 100,000 to 149,000. The average salary for each job would be in the range of 26,000 pounds per year.

    very best,

    Dear Equationgirl:

    To get additional informational, I suggest we correspond off line. Please advise where you can be reached.

    Be happy to provide you with additional information and Business Plans which summarize the Ventures we are discussing.

    If that does not work for you, I suggest you close your file and we both move on.

    very best,

    That's a 2.6 billion pound wage bill. Pretty impressive. If we could set this up in abandoned libraries and Sure Start centres I reckon we could be on to a winner. Good luck Jim. Our country needs you.

    I am still confused as to what Jim is trying to achieve on this message board. Is this supposed to be PR? Seeking investors? Seeking advice? Networking?

    Why are you here, Jim?

    You don't have to "Dear kabbes" me, by the way, but feel free to do so if it makes you feel gooood.

    This is probably not the best moment in history to be going on about reverse mergers.

    But not everyone who is suitable for the patch will take that option, or be suited to it, so basing your market size figures on a 100% take-up rate is inherently flawed.

    What is the basis of 915 jobs for 11,000 patients?

    significant collateral damage more like

    medical marijuana is a red herring so people like jim can synthesise various compounds for profit, while saying 'look what good can come from this bad plant that still needs to be controlled'.
    please, and i do mean this most sincerely, fuck right off

    Statistically around one in three UK adults consume dope at least occasionally. Medical MJ: you aren't thinking big enough. ... they should just give up and legalise.

    What even is a "new | well-paying job"? Is it anything like a new, well-paid job?
  21. stuff_it

    stuff_it stirred the primordial soup

    No, a 'new | well-paying' job involves cleaning the coins out of public fountains and wishing-wells.

    I accept that the video content above is somewhat overstated, nonetheless, according to "The Cannabible 3", 'in 1974, a study funded by the United States Government found evidence demonstrating that Tetrahydrocannabinol, the most active cannabinoid in cannabis, reduces growth rates of three kinds of cancer.'

    Corax Read my blog you bastards.

    And the two (NZ?) studies that generated such huge headlines linking schizophrenia and cannabis were widely discredited later. That didn't make front page news though.

    Jim's lot may be (trying to) making money from weed but so are the people currently selling it (and banning it)...and the change in font size is to do with the new forum thingy and quotes, quotes seem to keep more than the words now, they carry fonts, text sizes and flux capacitor stuff (it's too technical for you lot). Do you have any skins btw?

    Anyway, I only read two pages before posting, as is required these days it seems, have we considered that 'Jim' is actually one of those AI chatbots or perhaps alien? That would be cool.

    And after such flippancy I can only hope that the poor 'man' sees that for 40,000 members, Urban can be very insular and unwelcoming. A decade of discussion, political activism, acknowledgement from such as Newsnight, Anonymous, Wikileaks, sundry newspapers....what?...what was I saying, never mind...actually a bit peckish now.

    I for one welcome our new weed overlords. Can't say I'm happy with the whole grammar and punctuation stuff though. I think the basic question we need answered, to paraphrase homer, would be...what kind of weed?

    To Everyone:

    If we offended anyone with our content, formatting or grammar, remember that we are on the other side of the "pond" (there are those bloody quotation marks again) and we apologize for any missteps we made during our exchange today.

    Urban 75 has been an interesting experience and we very much appreciate the candid nature of your commentary; some troublesome, some witty, some humorous and some which help us understand the passion that you all have for what you individuality and collectively believe in. We are interlopers looking to you for direction and an understanding of what makes the UK the UK. You have helped us immensely.

    We believe we can make a difference in the world and time will tell if we can actually achieve the goals and objectives we have set for ourselves. More will follow as we (hopefully) receive a response from the Prime Minister.

    Very best to you all.
