If you're looking for someplace to plunk down investment dollars, you might just consider putting junk food on your list. As states move to legalize Mary Jane, as Oregon has just done, there are bound to be more munchie-fueled runs to the convenient store. Users prone to paranoia will be stocking up at big box chains, rather than face a 7-11 clerk with red eyes. If Oregon's measure 92 had passed, requiring labels of GMO products in foods, the whole junk food industry could have taken a huge hit. But the opposition spent $20 million dollars to defeat the ballot initiative by a very narrow margin... less than 1%. The cumulative effect of Oregon measures 91 and 92 make big junk Oregon's election night champion. It looks like Gizmo is doing alright too.
