dept of anti-climax
The new marijuana law takes effect in 30 days. How radish.
I voted against it, because the state is planning to levy a 25% tax on all transactions.
That's excessive in the extreme. Ten bucks an ounce at the wholesale point would be reasonable.
GC asked if these laws are going to set up a conflict between feds and states. Looks to me more like it's gonna be a conflict between growers and retailers and consumers vs. state revenuers, and possibly our dear old friends of the Drug Enforcement Administration.
Kind of reminds me of that old hillbilly tune
G-men, T-men, revenuers too,
All lookin for the place where he cooked his brew.
They were lookin tryin to book him
But my daddy kep a-cookin
(bam bam who shot Sam) White Lightnin.
