Think about the causes of success and failure for particular movements.   What causes some to become widely appealing and have major impacts on change?   What causes others (regardless of the validity of their concerns) to simply wither away in the dustbin of history?   Can you think of some that have evolved into stable organizations without much impact on social change?   Can you identify others that have become stable enterprises of sorts, constantly selling T-shirts and other emblems without doing much?   I think what causes some reforms to be more appealing than others is simply the interest of the citizens. What they want and were they see the country moving toward at the time. The only thing that I can think of that has currently come into play as a business or dispensary is the whole issues with marijuana, and whether or not to make it legal. Here in San Diego there has been an influx of medical marijuana dispensaries. I don’t know that it’s something that is stable but, it definitely has been impacting social change. Medical marijuana also attracts businessmen. California dispensaries possess great potential on the market. However, you need to have a license before you establish a dispensary and it entails several steps. Also that, medical marijuana state laws (which differs from each state) strictly implements some general rules on starting dispensary business. California allows anyone with a doctor’s recommendation to use medical marijuana, whatever their health condition. Critics claim dispensaries are often no more than drug trafficking fronts. The longtime host of “The Montel Williams Show” has been an outspoken medical marijuana advocate since he began using the drug to relieve pain caused by multiple sclerosis.
