Marijuana enhances our mind in a way that enables us to take a different perspective from 'high up', to see and evaluate our own lives and the lives of others in a privileged way. Maybe this euphoric and elevating feeling of the ability to step outside the box and to look at life’s patterns from this high perspective is the inspiration behind the slang term “high” itself.
The movie Koyaanisqatsi shows non-commented time-lapse footage and focuses our attention on the very rhythm of our civilized modern life and nature.

While the legalization of Cannabis is still new and being regulated for growing, packaging, distribution and sales, the IRS is old and has many regulations for businesses that can not be ignored, avoided or taken lightly.

If you are playing in this new field: Look to those with authority, expertise and knowledge that can not only help you with your taxes, but are also up to date with all of the rules, regulations, propositions, amendments and shifts in this exploding industry.
Segregation and separation can be a good thing. The person collecting money for your cannabusiness should not be the one that is in charge of doing the receivables or doing the reconciliations. Segregate and separate those three tasks to three different people. Person 1 - collects the money Person 2 - invoices for the money Person 3 - reconciles the money. This allows for lesser chances of collusion, lesser chances of people walking with money and lesser chances of being fined or penalized by the state.
