Soon to be no more "legal weed" in Louisiana


quote:

The Louisiana House unanimously agreed Tuesday that bags of herbal incense likened to marijuana and sold over the counter should be illegal.

House Bill 173 by state Rep. Ricky Templet, R-Gretna, easily cleared the House on a 102-0 vote. The legislation now moves to the Senate.

Don't see decriminalization coming anytime soon.

Way to go Louisiana law makers.

Not only did you kill millions in tax generated revenue, you also added the cost of fighting against this horrible "drug".

No shite. My stoner coworker always says after Jindal gets voted out it will happen. Louisiana will be one of the last states to decriminalize marijuana. Take that to the bank.

Did you read the article?

Also, as these items were being sold in stores, legally, sales tax was being paid on it.


quote:

Lobbyist Tracy Donovan Smith gave legislators a fact sheet warning that $120 million in revenue is at risk should the ban become law.


Do the math for sales tax on $120 million, and see what it equals.

Still doubt it?

This would make too much sense for these idiots.

I'm all for banning alcohol while they are banning stuff.

You will still be able to get over the internet from other states. So way to go LA you are about to make a law that will create tax revenue for other states.

I don't think you will, they want to make it illegal to inhale it.

You mean the ones you feel obligated to post in? Did your girl cheat on you with a pothead? You seem to have a vendetta against them
