2014 Marijuana Legalization Initiatives Underway in Three States
Here's something from the Infowars site:
"They say crime pays? Not exactly. Legalize a former crime and tax it and it really pays.
Just ask Colorado. Perhaps not so awkwardly labeled the “Highest State,” Colorado pulled in $2 million in taxes related to the sale of recreational marijuana…in January 2014 alone. Combined with taxes on sales from medicinal marijuana, the state pulled in nearly $3.5 million in pot-related tax revenue. If that trend continues, the state will see more than $40 million in additional tax dollars in 2014. To put that in perspective, that’s approximately 1% of the total annual budgets for Delaware, South Dakota, Montana or West Virginia."
Add to that windfall the savings made in not having to arrest, prosecute, and jail marijuana users and the savings will run into the 10's of millions if not the 100's. And that not even counting the loss in potential income earnings by those saddled for life with a "criminal" record for indulging in a victimless pastime that even according to our president and Michael Botticelli, the deputy director of the White House’s Office of National Drug Control Policy, have admitted is safer than alcohol and tobacco. http://tinyurl.com/krpe3b8
Both Oregon and Alaska may join Colorado and Washington this fall with at least 5 more states in the 2016 elections.
