    Sorry, I guess the drift is my fault. FWIW, I see neither panacea nor doomsday. States that hop on first will see a $$ bump (see CO), while those that wait to be last will see nothing. But in the end BB is right – it’ll be no more different than tax revenue on liquor, probably even much less in a state like ND. Industrial hemp has potential but it remains to be seen. It could impact the paper industry significantly, for example, because it grows much quicker than poplar or jackpine.

    I expect MN to go full legal soon, but if you had asked me just 2 years ago, I would have pegged MN and ND to be among the last. I have no doubt that the ND legislature would squirm with tremendous discomfort if the voters actually approve it, even going so far as to try to stop it. That’s why I find the measure so interesting politically.

    Back to students – It seems the legislature has built in a penalty for drops in enrollment that turns this into a double whammy. Do I have that right? What’s the logic? This strikes me as regressive. If you want the schools to be self sufficient, you want them to have as high an enrollment as possible (Port is being a hypocrite here and is just showing his true feelings about higher ed, especially NDSU). When enrollment drops, the state should up support, not cut it, to help the whole enterprise survive the downturn. Everything ND does wrt higher ed strikes me as backwards. Why is that? You need schools like NDSU and UND to build new industries and attract new workers. I’m truly baffled sometimes by what comes out of Bismarck …

    Idk, does it bother you they are profiting already on "higher consumption of drugs"?

    Warning: It is the offseason. Trollolol may or may not be in full swing. Take a deep breath and eat a trolli burger before reading my posts.

    They wrote the law pretty vaguely so they can fill in the blanks. I fully expect it to look completely different than it is written. Even if it is, its significant progress. However it effects farming is to be seen but I think we can all agree that by decriminalizing it, it will put us in a better place if it does take off and we have plenty of land and farmers who have the skills to grow hemp or cannabis.

    In a dream scenario we become a huge exporter and the economy booms. Worst case, nobody grows it. The truth is probably somewhere in between

    Residential college enrollment is down nationwide. Not a big limb to go out on there.
    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I guess betting the farm on a residential model wasn’t such a great idea. FWIW, 10 years is a long time to be president at a university, even if you’re a successful one …

    But this way he can say he broke the news. You know, Pulitzer and all.
    North Dakota State, a football team the big boys of college football should avoid like the plague, helped christen a $90 million renovation to Snyder Family Stadium — including a statue of famed Kansas State coach Bill Snyder himself — by taking a sledgehammer to the place.
