Yeah I get that, But the tax will prolly be close to what it is on a pack of smokes. I would assume it will be at worst even on price pre versus post taxing.


For good mj, a joint the size of a cigarette would cost at least $15. Assuming it will be sold loose, the manufacturing costs will be less than tobacco so the retail price could be cheaper than tobacco. I'm thinking mj could be taxed several times as much as tobacco and people wouldn't bat an eye as long as they aren't paying more than they were illegally.

I kind of figured that would be the threshold, don't need anyone feeling pain at the pump type of thing!

if the potheads want legal weed its going to be taxed. this shouldn't be a surprise to anyone


It isn't a surprise, in fact it's what we've been asking them to do for YEARS. I'm ready to pay taxes, it'll still end up the same price or cheaper. No skin off our noses.

I pay 25-30 an 1/8 from a grower. Ounce is 150.

Unions want a bigger piece too.

I'm sure they will only be a positive influence in whole
legalization process.

Where do you live? $35 for TOP SHELF 1/8?? Either your math is off or your stuff isn't TOP shelf.


the free market has brought the price down. Ironically most of the sellers are on Federal blvd. My place has $40 and $35 eighths but I get a 5 dolla discount and a 1 freeby a month although I'm trying to quit. All the young ladies that smoke off my pipe seem to be satisfied.

Interesting that even the antis are moving from a law enforcement model to a treatment model. This is a step in the right direction.

Just tax weed like cigs and beer. Huge money could be made. Save money from court and jail time. Easy solution.

How could the national government tax something that it recognizes as illegal and still prosecutes people for possessing? frick that, if they're going to tax it(and not just states or counties), legalize it.
