Potty tax?

It looks like economics are getting closer to catching up with the pervasive reality that Marijuana is an important constant in a countries GDP. If you think there's grit and shit in it now, wait till the FEDS get hold of it legally:

They cite $55 a week for 40 million smokers in the USA! LOL, When you think that a quarter of skunk is £50, I'd say they're playing down the economioc value by at least half.

Illegal drugs are big

Illegal drugs are big business! Got to be one of the most lucrative products out there, thanks mainly to efforts to ban them :-) The last estimate I saw even in the tiny island that is the UK is that the trade as a whole was worth £8 billion. There's some tax revenue to be had there for sure. And much as I resent how the Government spends/wastes a lot of the money it gets its hands on, it's probably better that it goes there than to the criminal underground...

Hopefully, quality control would remove the contamination in a legal product...but who knows what they'd replace it with? :-)

Definitely..........

Indiscernable poison.

Every little helps.
