    If pot was legalized, they would lose their jobs.

    I don't like pot, but I think it's time to legalize it and tax the shit out of it.

    We don't like a lot of things but why keep them illegal just because of that?

    Brought to you by federal over-reach, and a bullshit government that refuses to follow it's own constitution.

    Washington State is hurting right now, our governor even put a tax on candy.
    And marijuana is a huge industry here, most of the weed I buy is locally grown. Plus most of the BC bud comes in through Washington. We could be taxing all of it, and control the price and the age of who buys it.

    If the riads were legal then confiscating those petitions may also be legal. Sad but true.

    If we tax the "shit" out of it there would continue to be an underground market, yes?
    Why not have something the government does not tax for once in our lifetimes?

    Is that how it worked with alcohol? What's the percentage of 'shiners and bootleggers compared to liquor stores?

    I HATE taxes. However, taxing recreational/luxury items, which are user's choice, I have no problem with.

    Touche.... I am just sick of government involvement in every fuckin thing we do. I had a company meeting yesterday and some new mandates coming down the pike make no sense if you look at how our government governs itself.

    Lets legalize burglary, after all no one gets hurt by it and we can not stop it. Just think we could issue licenses and tax the income the thieves get when they sell their loot.
