So how do the youth of today get around? All the young people I know drive. Single driver cars are common. Not so much in the 1960s when people had families. And people in their 30s, 40s, 50s, etc. are driving. They are part of the potential market. Some of them may be aging Hippies who thought they had a right to smoke dope all along. Like I said, I was there. It was dumb and harmful. Still is.
Organized crime will invest. They will take their cut. Besides, their boys on the street don’t sell bootleg alcohol. They sell marijuana and other illegal drugs. Some people don’t want their face on a security camera in a legal dope store/outlet, so they will still buy from the guy down the street like they have been.
And legal problems may become an issue in accident insurance claims.
