Meet The Investment Group That Will Help Legalize Weed And Cash Out On Its Success
Success

The Arcview Group knows that it will only be a matter of time before marijuana replaces the internet as the biggest money-maker of the modern era. While the stock of Apple and Facebook could plummet at any given time, those who are leading the fight behind marijuana’s quest for legalization aren’t going anywhere but up.

The marijuana industry and its partners are what we should be investing in and thanks to Arcview, a select few lucky souls have already reserved for themselves a generous piece of the pie by lending a hand to the guys who are cooking it up as we speak.

With a healthy helping of THC, of course.

This Seattle-based investor network aims to expose the public not just to the physical and mental healing powers of this sacred plant, but also to its inevitable economic success as well.

Arcview teams venture capitalists with successful pot entrepreneurs to form a joint-effort that pushes for federal legalization of marijuana while simultaneously turning the pot industry into a powerful business that will bring in tons of cash for investors, the individual states and this country as a whole.

“Cannabis is the next great American industry. We look forward to building it with you,” says the group’s website.

Like many pot activists, Arcview seeks to open the world’s eyes to the undeniable fact that the marijuana industry possesses all of the necessary qualities to become an absolute goldmine for the private sector. Marijuana is showing no sign of halting its progress towards legalization and is unquestionably one of the only commercial products that has a zero percent chance of falling off the market.

Free-market capitalism was created for the average citizen to profit from the triumph of his country,

Arcview strives to spread the word that the sooner we give those in the industry the tools they need to become fully-capable businesses, the sooner this country and its citizens will bask in the treasure at the end of this bright-green rainbow.

“The hippies keep being right,” Arcview founder Tray Dayton told VICE.com. “They were right about personal computing, alternative energy, organic foods, and yoga — four of the biggest business success stories of the past few decades. And they’re right again about cannabis.

All of this bubbles up from the counterculture, until finally the mainstream takes notice. Do things get diluted along the way? I mean, now you’ve got McYoga and Fortune 500 companies that aren’t doing everything the way the original organic food movement wanted, and renewable energy owned by oil companies, but the overall impact is hugely positive.”

Formed in 2010, Arcview boasts over 50 accredited investors who meet in Seattle at least once a quarter to determine the best possible opportunities to expand and legitimize the marijuana market. The membership fee for accredited investments is a minimum of $50,000 and most participants have a net worth of roughly $1 million.

Investors include experienced tech entrepreneurs, real estate investors, heirs to vast family fortunes and owners of the most popular marijuana dispensaries in the country. This money is used to help dispensaries, paraphernalia companies, botany research organizations and even organic nutrient companies grow in size, credibility, popularity and financial capability. And of course, the investors cement their fair share of these companies’ profits once the big bucks start rolling in.

Surely the CEO and President of Arcview must be cunning businessmen who are pros at squeezing money out of stupid rich people, right? Nope, they’re two passionate stoners just like the rest of us. When CEO and founder Troy Dayton is singing karaoke or blogging about the Burning Man festival, he serves as a board member of the National Cannabis Industry Association.

He was the first sales director at Renewable Choice Energy (the highest rated green power provider in the world) and co-founded Students for Sensible Drug Policy, which now has chapters on over 200 college campuses.

The president of Arcview is Steve DeAngelo, the CEO of the legendary Harborside Health Center and star of the Discovery Channel’s “Weed Wars.” DeAngelo set a new standard for running a marijuana dispensary and had a vital role in the passage of Prop 59, the most significant initiative toward the legalization of medical marijuana to date.

A myriad of companies are already seeing rapid increases in revenue thanks to the investments of Arcview. Everyone from vaporizer manufacturers to private energy companies to botany labs has received massive amounts of new customers and attention from the media from the business opportunities for expansion Arcview’s business-savvy investors bestowed upon them. The more attention, financial backing and public praise these companies get, the more accepted and reputable this industry will become and Washington will soon have no choice but to comply.

So basically, if (or when) marijuana were to become federally legal and the country is saved from its economic woes maybe a few years earlier than anticipated, the Arcview Group can take a pretty good deal of the credit for that monumental achievement. The financial crisis has taken the faith in the wealthy from a lot of us, but Arcview is here to remind you that there is still a levelheaded group of rich people who are contributing to and betting on our glory, not our demise.
