    They project about $300m/yr in taxes when we max out in a few years, and right now there's little reason to think we won't hit that figure. Just looking around the Detroit metro area, there are still new dispensaries opening practically every month.

      That's insane given it would make up 1% of the entire state's tax revenue. 33% relative to all business income tax. 4% of all sales taxes. That's probably a hell of lot better than the best thing in 30 years.

      • And unlike Illinois they don't over tax it or have rather low limits on how much you can purchase. (Illinois restricts out of staters even more) Way better value buying in Michigan...

        Or so I have heard ;^)

                Probably blame it on Antifa or on MS13.

                  • Don't know if this makes me smart or a pansy (or both, guess time will tell) but I bought shares in Newegg shortly after its IPO about 6 weeks ago expecting to hold it long term. But it's fluctuated a ton, often 5-10% daily, which is more volatility than I usually go for, but it was all movement around what I bought it for so whatever. Could live with being up 100 or down 200 expecting it to level out and then hopefully grow over time

                    Well something happened this last week to cause it to skyrocket, and i couldn't tell what (the last bit today was at least some WSB-influenced meme trading, but prior to that I couldn't find anything pointing to what was going on) so I cashed out.

                    Feels weird. I don't like treating even my "fun" account like a casino making short term trades like this, but on the other hand how do I not lock in that gain and get out when I have no idea what's causing all the movement.

                      This is the best way to look at it. Do your due diligence, (brokerage newsfeed, twitter, and reddit) as to what's causing it. If you can't figure it out or can't assess whether it's a long term or short term effect and don't care about short term CGs, then yeah, I'd probably lock it in and get out. These WSB things are often fleeting and you'll never know which way they're going to go.


                      Edit: holy fuck. It doubled today and tripled over the last week? Sell that **** and never look back (which it sounds like you did). Don't think of it as a casino unless you're trying to make short term plays. You intended to go long term and life just made those gains happen sooner. I'd do the same thing if any of my stocks went WSB/meme and doubled overnight.

                      • Wells Fargo is ending all personal credit lines.

                        Not only will they open false accounts in your name and charge you fees for them, now they’ll hurt your credit score too!

                        I’ve said it before, but I cannot believe anyone continues to bank with them. Some people with mortgages don’t really have a choice if theirs was bought by WF, but willingly choosing them is astounding.

                          What if the PLoC was the false account they opened for you? (Yup, happened to me during mortgage process.)

                            Far be it for me to defend Wells Fargo, but if they want out of a particular line of business, that's a pretty standard business decision made thousands of times a day by all sorts of companies.

                            That their decision will impact people's credit scores sucks, but isn't inherently their fault that it does so, and that speaks more to how farked credit scores are than how bad Wells Fargo is.

Meanwhile the US, the southern US especially, wind up with pollution from the creation of those pellets AND clear-cut forrest land with little to no tree regrowth to capture carbon naturally.
