With 2 states passing laws legalizing weed there are 6 more states that also plan on doing the same. The latest one is New Hampshire.

Read this your state might be one of them.

THANK FREAKING GOD!
Any way to raise taxes without hurting those who can't afford to pay them...I'm all for it!
I bet if we taxed the shit out of hookers and blow....well we would balace the budget in no time!
I've only seen 1kg of blow twice in my life...
first was Bolivia in 1996
next was right off of wallstreet a place called Stone Street....makes you wonder who is watching your 401k

States indeed need to tax the crap out of marijuana users, just like they do to cigarette smokers. They are going to get rid of a lot of crime and make money at the same time.

Exactly the point. Also The DEA would be able to focus on other drugs like meth or heroin.

If the government's really concerned about our health they should go after fast food restaurants and pharmaceutical companies both cause more health problems than cannabis.

The truth is all humans have an endocannabinoid system and produce cannabinoids. Although in smaller amounts than in cannabis. The endocannabinoid system controls our appetite, sleep, memory, and does alot for the immune system. If your body doesn't produce enough cannabinoids you could develop health problems.

Whats sad about it marijuana is the 3rd most popular recreational drug behind alcohol and tobacco. It is the safest of the 3 with countless medical benefits both as a cure and a preventative medicine. States have every right to tax cannabis.

But if you chose to believe the lies our government wants you to believe instead of the truth thats your choice.

At one point of time citizens were allowed to pay their taxes in hemp, and it was actually required for citizens to grow hemp.

It's only common sense though. As it is marijuana is costing our government billions of dollars. Legalizing it could bring even more than that in tax revenue. There is a reason so many states are wanting to follow Colorado and Washington.

The war on cannabis will never work, there are too many people like myself that are in love with this plant too much for that to happen.

It is a historical time for the marijuana reform!

There are two measure introduced today on the federal level. One that deschedules marijuana, and another that sets up a federal tax system on those states that have legalized marijuana.

Read all about it here.
