More than patients helped by medical marijuana (POLL)

Posted By on Sun, Jun 20, 2010 at 9:37 PM

On Saturday, the Colorado Springs Business Journal's Rebecca Tonn brought us a story on how the medical marijuana movement's ripple effects have touched more than just patients' lives.

“You’re putting the painter, plumber, dry waller and Joe the plumber back to work,” said Steve Hammers, owner of Hammers Construction Inc.

Hammers said he receives five to 10 calls a day from growers, whereas one call in six months might be from other industries.

“It’s the only business going on,” he said. “The economy sucks. I’m a contractor and a developer. These are the only people who want to buy or lease space.”

The topic is important to the Indy as well; see the July 1 issue of "ReLeaf" for more. In the meantime, a question:


Have you, or someone you know, commercially benefited from the medical marijuana industry?
