One of three marijuana plants growing in the backyard of a 65-year-old retiree from Pompano Beach, Fla.
Originally published on June 18, 2014 9:05 am Twenty-two states and the District of Columbia now have laws allowing for some form of medical marijuana.
Polls show that voters there are likely to approve a November ballot measure legalizing marijuana for medical use. The customers feedback can engage you a great of the value and uppercase satisfaction of the product. If it passes, regulations that would set up a market for medical marijuana in Florida are still at least a year away.
But cannabis entrepreneurs from around the country are already setting up shop in the state. In Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa and Orlando, there's a business conference every few weeks devoted to a product that's still illegal. Don't confuse that with the Florida Medical Cannabis Association or the Medical Marijuana Business Association of Florida, just three of the dozens of groups started in the months since it became clear that the marijuana measure was moving ahead.
While the vote is months away, there are many who see Florida's impending embrace of medical marijuana as an opportunity that's too good to miss. There were seminars on cultivating the best strains, converting cannabis into oils and concentrates, and on marketing and legal issues. Since California became the first state to approve medical marijuana in 1996, 21 other states have followed suit. The creek was rising and the fish were a bit sluggish, but I was able to tempt a few wild browns to hit my Yozuri stick bait. The National Cannabis Industry Association estimates medical marijuana will be a $785 million industry in Florida — one that Quigley says will have all kinds of economic opportunities.
Cannabis-RX, a real estate company based in Arizona, is also active here, investing in properties it plans to sell or lease to growers and operators of dispensaries. At the Orlando conference, Meg Sanders of Gaia, a grower with three dispensaries in Colorado, flew in from Denver.
I don't question why, but I will say that the Berkley Trout Worm in a PINK or ORANGE color will usually get you a few bites. And if there's opportunity in other states, we'll definitely be there at the table," says Sanders. With that being said, I have created my own Pink Worm that has enabled me to land many trout, both wild and stocked.
If the medical marijuana amendment passes, the state won't issue regulations for another six months to a year. Florida's governor recently signed into law a very limited version of medical marijuana — one that allows production and sale only of a special strain that's low in THC.
So, I am sorry for that.A Now, when the power is out for 7 days and the clean-up effort at your house is over, you need a few hours to unwind. They have to be large operations that have been in business in Florida for at least 30 years. Chris Rumph, a prospective entrepreneur at the conference, says that regulation has many wondering how welcoming Florida officials will be to the emerging cannabis industry.
So, there's a little bit of suspicion there for me." How the medical marijuana regulations will be written, though, is for the future. For activists and entrepreneurs, the first task is mobilizing Florida voters to actually approve the medical marijuana amendment.Copyright 2014 NPR. A few local streams were scheduled to be stocked with trout-- Manatawny Creek, Hay Creek and Tulpehocken Creek. Transcript MELISSA BLOCK, HOST: Twenty-two states and the District of Columbia have now legalized marijuana for medical use.
I should be in very good company this year with my best friend Mark and a college buddy named Mark joining in the fun. Still - as NPR's Greg Allen reports from Miami - cannabis entrepreneurs from around the country are already heading to Florida and setting up shop.
GREG ALLEN, BYLINE: In Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa and Orlando there's one every few weeks - a business conference devoted to a product that's still illegal.
Don't confuse that with the Florida Medical Cannabis Association or the Medical Marijuana Business Association of Florida. Those are just three of the dozens of groups started in recent months since it became clear that Florida voters would soon have the opportunity to approve a measure allowing the use of medical marijuana.


But there are many who see Florida's impending embrace of medical marijuana as an opportunity too good to miss.
ALLEN: There were seminars on cultivating the best strains, converting cannabis into oils and concentrates - also on marketing and legal issues. The National Cannabis Industry Association estimates medical marijuana will be a $785 million industry in Florida - one that Quigley says will have all kinds of economic opportunities.
QUIGLEY: You know, if you want to become a bud tender that works inside one of these dispensaries as an occupation - if you want to run your own business, there's that opportunity as well.
A real estate company based in Arizona, Cannabis-RX, is also active here investing in properties that it plans to sell or lease to growers and operators of dispensaries. LLORN KYLO: We look at light industrial commercial buildings that are in the right zoned areas of the cities.
I managed a few smallmouths and had a nice brown follow my 3-inch stickbait for about 15 yards. ALLEN: Along with real estate, Cannabis-RX also offers budding entrepreneurs financing and consulting services to help them get their businesses off the ground. It was pretty cool, the water was clear and you could see the fish slash and slash at the stickbait. Can't wait to fish all the local streams, as they all will have a new look and feel to them. If the medical marijuana amendment passes, it'll be another six months to a year before the state issues regulations. Florida's governor recently signed into law a very limited version of medical marijuana - one that allows production and sale only of a special strain. A prospective entrepreneur at the conference, Chris Rumph, says that regulation has many wondering how welcoming Florida officials will be to the emerging cannabis industry.
CHRIS RUMPH: The opening up to nurseries that have been around for 30 years - I think that's kind of silly. We live in a state where we've got thousands of nurseries with people that are very educated and knowledgeable about plants and how to grow things effectively. I have no idea what Erie will look come late October, early November, but I am hoping they get some serious rain up there. For activists and entrepreneurs, the first task is mobilizing Florida voters to approve the medical marijuana amendment that will be on the ballot in November. All in all we landed 8 species of fish: Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Rock Bass, Redbreast Sunfish, Bluegill, Green Sunfish, Fallfish and a Crappie.
She looks at me with a absolutely no freakn way look and goes, so daddy, How much money do I have to pay you. There is no better way to cool down in the summer heat than wet wading and catching some fish. Smallies, Largemouth Bass, Redbreast Sunfish, Bluegill and a White Perch were the fish I brought to hand.
The temps during the day were brutal and the skeeters made me pay for attempting to fish Cherry Run. I only fished where some cool tributary water emptied into Penns.Saturday was tricky with a few bugs in the air.
Sunday evening was reverse fashion -- Isos then BWOs.I got a half-decent picture of a Iso stuck in the shuck.
The fish took a CDC Sulphur pattern -- it was DARK, no light at all when the fish took the fly.
I stayed off Penns during the heat of the day-- it was 90 degrees in the afternoon on both days. I made an attempt to fish Cherry Run and landed 2 brookies in short order on my Moth pattern. The sportsman then proceeds to tell me that he is going to cross the creek and kick my BLEEPITY BLEEP. Spoke to the gentleman again, with Ronnie explaining that the area is posted and the signs are on the road. They are easy to see too, especially when the wings are made of CDC.A I won't be out fishing again any time soon.
If you want to wet a line--give me a shout and I'll do my best to put you on some fish.A Trout fishing locally will cease with water temps hovering around 70 degrees.
Big Spring Creek, Letort, Yellow Breeches, Big Fishing Creek or Spring Creek are some of the streams that are fishable in the summer.


We can also hike along some cool mountain creeks in search of native brook trout or wild brown trout.
Vinny caught a Smallmouth Bass on a worm and Zoe landed a nice-sized Brown Trout on a crayfish lure. I'll probably be fishing with a friend on Sunday evening or taking the rugrats to drown some worms!!! A Sunday, I was able to fish a local Class A water and noticed many Blue-Winged Olive spinners. I managed one fish landed, one fish missed and one fish lost before I had to run to the truck.
Best trick tonight was to cast down and across and inch an emerger back to the shore, pausing it at spots were a fish just rose. I made my cast---the fish slid out from under the brush---he sat in a lane with his mouth open waiting for my fly---with ease, he swallowed the fly. No wild trout today, but the Rainbows were very colored up with beautiful pink fins and the Browns looked like they have been living in the stream for years. Thursday was brutal where I saw creeks that were in perfect shape one minute, turn into Willy Wonka within' two hours.
I volunteered a few hours Sunday morning with the A Great Day Outdoors fellas, Roger and Bob who help put together the Bob and Jeff Miller Trout Fishing Clinic, which is a mentoring program for the Big Brothers and Big Sisters.The fish were provided by Mike's Tattoo and Body Piercing that is located in Reading, PA.
I helped a few kids land some trout and was able to see many folks that I have not seen in a few years.
We had a great time and found some really neat critters and managed to catch a fish or two.
We caught a good number of wild brown trout and missed many more.The slower pools had fish sipping in Little Yellow Stoneflies. Plenty of yardwork to make the little woman happy, drive happy little woman to her mother's house and call your best friend to go fish a stream you have not fished in about 15 years.
Saw a huge Barred Owl fly up the stream and hang out in a tree for a little bit before he flew elsewhere.
He launched them up out of the water and onto the dirt bank like the bass fisherman do on tv. After I saw him boot his 4th fish in about 20 minutes, he goes: That's what I came here for. Two-- a stickbait--a Yozuri Pin's Minnow is my favorite-- is also tough to beat during cold, high and dirty water conditions.
Three -- My favoritefor fly fishing is a 2 fly rig that consists of a bigger and brighter glowbug with a Green Weenie dropped off of it. If there are rainbows around, they will hammer a nicely presented egg pattern pretty much any time of the year. Local Class A waters are running at agood rate and are still on the cold side.Trout season opens next weekend for SE PA waters.
Headed to the Little Lehigh and when I got there the lot was full and anglers were top to bottom. Fished the quarry hole and managed toland a few bluegill and a good number of smaller Largemouth Bass. Most ofthe bass were taken on smaller ice spoons tipped with waxies.With the heatwave we are in, not sure how much longer the ice will be around. Drilling through the ice with my Nils 8 inch ice auger was too much for my shoulders.Hey, I have an 8 inch Nils Ice Auger for sale !!!
The PFBC was on the ice and it was the first time in over 10 years that I had my license checked.
We started the day using tungsten jigs, then switched to shrimpos and did some sight fishing. I don't question why, but I will say that the Berkley Trout Worm in a PINK or ORANGE color will usually get you a few bites.
Can't wait to fish all the local streams, as they all will have a new look and feel to them.
