I have not smoked the stuff in 15 years or more and I am for legalization. We should charge out politicians for being stupid and dragging their feet on this issue.

Let's say there are 50 thousand smokers who roughly spend $50 for an 8th a week on Marijuana, now that comes to $ 2,500,000. This is money is not being taxed, so lets say for the hell of it, a LEGAL 8TH with Tax comes to $65. (its a round number, I like round numbers). Now with tax that same 50thousand smokers are paying a nice weekly Smoking Tax of $750,000 (A WEEK!) <br />
<br />
Now if we total that small $15 Tax, toss in our 50thousand Stoners, than in 12 months the state of California would have an extra $40,500,000 a year in taxes coming in.<br />

Now if anyone wants to do the math, I ba<x>sed my math on 50,000 smokers. Now what if it was 1,500,000 people paying a $15 Tax?

No they should however legalize it and not tax it, it is a friggin plant that shouldn't be illegal and why tax it? What reason other than tracking people that smoke pot is there to tax it?

Best Answer

It's pretty much legal here already. Anyone can get that weed card.

If they can find a way to tax it without it still being on the black market I'm sure they would. It's something people can produce themselves so it would be difficult to tax.

They should legalize it all over the country. The tax on it would solve our money problems. It's rediculous that it's illegal and alcohol is not. : /
