Amazon endorses GOP bill that would legalize marijuana on federal level – New York Post – Amazon News

Amazon has endorsed a Republican-backed bill in Congress on Tuesday that would legalize marijuana on a federal level, leaving states to decide whether to prohibit or regulate it.  Rep. Nancy Mace’s (R-SC) States Reform Act would remove cannabis as a federal Schedule I substance and introduce a new 3% federal tax on the substance.  Revenue from the tax would be routed help fund law enforcement and veterans’ health programs — and cannabis would remain illegal nationwide for anyone under 21 except for medical marijuana patients. “Every state is different and every state should be able to dictate their cannabis laws,” Mace told The Post in an interview. “This bill would get the federal government out of the way.” In a tweet on Tuesday, Amazon’s public policy arm said it was “pleased to endorse” Mace’s proposal.  “Like so many in this country, we believe it’s time to reform the nation’s cannabis policy…

Amazon brings Just Walk Out convenience to the suburbs – The Verge – Amazon News

Amazon is bringing its cashierless Just Walk Out technology to a new format of stores aimed at suburbs, the company announced today. The new stores will use the Amazon Go branding that the company already uses for its locations in city centers, but will instead be located further afield where they’ll sell food, snacks, alcohol, and “a few every day essentials.” They’re convenience stores, basically, and come at a time when a shift to home working means that people are spending more time in the vicinity of their homes rather than commuting into city-based offices. Like its other Just Walk Out stores, Amazon says customers will be able to browse the store, pick up items, and then leave without having to interact with a cashier or self-checkout. An exact date for the opening of the first of these locations is yet to be announced, but Amazon says the 6,150 square…

Amazon Stock At 10 Year Low, Now Cheaper Than Microsoft (NASDAQ:AMZN) | Seeking Alpha – Amazon News

Julie Clopper/iStock Editorial via Getty ImagesYou’ve heard the rebuttal for over two decades now: Amazon (AMZN) is expensive at a p/e of 50-80 or whatever it is at a given moment. Even as it hovers almost 24% below its high, this p/e mantra may be the most frequented comment here on Seeking Alpha regarding this stock. For example, last week in an article about the “market crash is likely only beginning,” I wrote this: comment on Seeking Alpha Seeking AlphaOne of the replies was this: AMZN p/e is still 57, hardly cheap. This younger generation of “buy the dip” “investors” has never experienced a true crash. As someone who invested during the first dot-com bubble and afterward, clung to the Graham and Buffett value methodology, I too fell for that argument. Eventually I finally got it; Amazon actually makes respectable profits, however they shield it from taxes by reinvesting. This…
