Wealth and Health

Sharing marijuana wealth may not amount to much, but it’s a start.  

Sharing wealth is ordinarily extremely hard, because it involves taking wealth away from rich people, who are inordinately influential.  Sharing cannabis wealth in the move from illegality to legality is much easier, since no one owns the wealth yet.
