What do you think of marijuana being taxed like alcohol?

Presently it is sold in 'dispensaries' with a medical prescription needed. The government wants a piece of the 'action' so they have decided to put it to a vote in November.

  • I'll vote for legalizing it. It's gonna be out there, it's gonna be part of the driving force of cash flow and it's always has been.... why not tax it and start a process towards better control of it. Just like booze bootleggers are fewer and further between now, so will pot dealers be (I think, I prolly wrong, but hey). If you can tax it you can begin to control it (at first on a small scale and maybe later on a larger one).

  • That would be better than spending millions of dollars a year to keep it illegal.

  • I don't really like the idea, buuuuut Cali is BROOOOOOOOKKKKKKKKEEE. They have to do something, and they won't (for whatever stupid reason) drill for the oil off the coast. I would rather see them drill for the oil that is ours already.

  • Tax it, make it legal, use the funds to get us out of this hole...Hell, maybe with these funds, and stopping putting people in jail for this victimless crime, we can actually be a country with a little money again.
