The company publishes college

Dave Dicken, field supervisor in

The company has to wait forUK to

Dicken said, Promotional En-
terprises must have the directory
printed within 20 working days of
receiving the print-out tapes.

According to McLaughlin, the

to relieve big problem

The University has a housing problem.
The e is no room for 403 students who want to
live in campus dormitories.

The Lexington community as a whole also
has a housing problem. The 1.8 per cent
vacancy rate (the percentage of hocn housing
available) is more than five per cent below
what the Federal Housing Administration
considers sound.

If space is unavailable for ttfo students out of
about 5,030 seeking err-campus housing, how
many of the tore than 15,030 students who are
looking for off-campus quarters are
homele“? That question is staggering in it-
self, without considering these hundrc is of off-
campus renters who are burdened with in-
flated rent and inadequate fattilit'es.

Furthermore, University officials are
hesitant to build when they think enrollment

Marijuana ’3 future: prospects for big business in Kentucky

Ct: cwoutl Galbraith

Editor‘s Kate: This. a: tit-tr l. the last
of a three part series on proposals
for marijuana reform.

lf-TC is shawlutely no reason why
the production and distribution of
marijuana in the United States after
its legalization should fall into the
hands of large industry, i e. liquor or
tobacco companies, the large land-
owners or the. already rich. These
people have done nothing to aid
those users who have been per-
secuted in the past. They have stood
by and let the individual face the




brunt of misled public opinion. they '

should not be allowed to step in
after the long battle and reap the
profits that will inevitably flow after

i want to arrange the flow of those
profits in a manner that benefits the
common man in this country. Spe
cifically, I believe that my plan will
raise the cash income of every
farmer in Kentucky by $10,000 to
$20,000 a year. That seems much
more preferable than to let a few
dozen large landowners make. hun-
dreds of thousands of dollars simply
because they were born into more
lucrative circumstances.

Large capital isn't necessary for
efficient production and distribution

of marijtuma in this state. Ken-
tucky‘s guvcrnmcntal resources will
suffice to aid our farmers in their
production and sale of pot. By this, I
mean that our present state
government‘s resources can be ut-
ilized to implement the production of
marijuana on a large scale. Since
the state will want to exercise
controls on the marijuana market
someplace along the line, let's insist
that they do so efficiently and in a
way that benefits; the most people.

Iwanl to see it done this way. The
state of Kentucky can utilize its
agricultural departments and its
agents to educate our farmers in
raising quality marijuana. With the
help of our universities in research,

it is. not improbable that within five ,.

years, Kentucky could grow some of 2"
the. best pot in the world. Our
climate is near perfectly suited for
growing marijuana. the widespread

tothe dctrim ent of small landowners
in eastern Kentucky who desperatly
need a lucrative cash crop.
Accordingly, I would license each
farmer to grow pot, and put a limit
on the number of pounds of mari-
juana each farmer could cultiva

Consumer focus

When the scientists who developed

the Viking space probe began their
search for life on Mars, they had to
ask a very big question: “How will
we know if it’s alive when and if we
find it?” They designed the probe to
perform three experiments, in-
volving absorption of radioactivity
or food and measured what was
given off. The determination the
scientists made, in short, was that if
it’s alive. it’ll be a consumer.

This concept applies whether on
tars or in Lexington: to live is to
consume. But to jump from the very
simple experiments with Martian


bruce w. singleton


soil absorbing nutrients to the
American public absorbing billions
of dollars worth of ‘consumer goods’
each year regimes in very different
perspective on that notion.

In a generation, ours has become a
consumer economy; in a decade our
laws have moved to consumer
protection. Never before was the
government so sensitive to the needs
and even wants of the consumer.
And the consumer, too, has become
aware of his place in society. .-

Thene was once a saying, “Don’t
laugh at the consumer. . . she’s your
wife.” Today, that adage must be
changed to “We have met the
consumer ard he is us.” It has
become the business of everyone to
carefully scruitinize what the
producers give us. From cars to
toilet tissue, from makeup to soft
drinks, the purity and safety of the
product must meet certain ex-
pectations. If the product does not
measure up, at least two alter-
natives are' available. Either the
consumer will stop; buying the
product, and thus force im-
provements, or the law will be
brought to bear and perhaps a more
drastic remedy achieved.

That first alternative is not as
strong as it may seem, though.
Consumer resistance, though un-
doubtedly a factor in producer
decision-making, does not
necessarily materalize. Brand
names become popular through
advertising. And brand habits are
hard to break. People get ac-
customed to the way a certain anti-
perspirant smells or sprays and it
really doesn’t matter to them if it

profiting businesses. We can use this machine. Marijuana used 3::

plan to lift several thousands of our
needy citizens to middle class
incomes. They would be engaged in
selling nothing but marijuana and
paraphernalia. This should enable
them to earn a good solid income.
Their products could also include
foreign marijuana subjected to an
importation tax at our borders in
order to keep its prices in line with
our own domestic pot.

The arithmetic of this might work
out as follows. The farmer sells
excellent pot to the state at $100 a
pound and at a profit of perhaps $90
per pound. The state grades and
packages it, then sells it for $175 a
pound to its vendors. They, in turn,
sell excellent marijuana to the
public at $15 an ounce, with a profit
of $65 a pound. in this way, the
