I understand why you’re finding it difficult. The numbers for this market probably won’t be available for a few years. Latest data I can find is for 2007 and 2008 (partial). I think the option is to “refund” or make it a long term market and forget about looking for the data for two or three years.

having difficulty keeping track of this and will probably refund, unless there are any objections?

I support the refund option. I also tried to find info and couldn’t.

That’s why lots of people today are fighting for the legalization of marijuana. By the way, how numerous of you have heard the term 4:20. Almost anyone who lives in The United States today has by now heard the 420 meaning as the “National Pot Smokers Day.” So where did this term originate from? Although there are numerous rumors, one of the most legitimate one I have found is actually that a group of children in high school would smoke pot at that time each day. The dad to one of the kids cleaned for the Grateful Dead, and just in common conversation the term 420 was picked up and spread to the world through their music. Now you hear it everywhere. Let’s not forget that today is also going to be the day when there can be a gathering at the University of Colorado, expected to exceed 10,000 participants, to have a rally for the legalization of marijuana.

Looks like scaling is different by factor of 10?

My “tip” after buying says “A price of $125.00 means the current projected value is 125,000.00” which at $100/ticket means 1,250 tickets. Last time $125 price was scaled such that it meant 125 tickets.

This is not meant to be criticism – just a “heads up” that there is somewhat less leverage in the market this time. Will be an interesting question how many are actually issued this year. Interesting that no one ever reported on the official total for 2009.

The market is the same as this market, but for 2010.
