    Why should any of the money go to police when they've spent years arresting people for using it?


    I got out my pipe stuffed it with pot

    You better believe it held a whole lot.

    I whipped out a lighter thumbed up a flame

    Sucked down that smoke which comforts my brain.

    I tried alcohol smoked cigarettes

    They did nothing but give me regrets.

    My mom had arthritis could not walk around

    I rolled her a joint she danced on the ground.

    I thought I was losing my lovemaking knack

    After I smoked some to me it came back.

    Soon I decided prices were high

    I searched for some ground I wouldn't have to buy.

    I bargained for seeds from smokers all around

    Got in my truck and drove out of town.

    I walked through the woods where wild birds nest

    Found me the meadow I thought was the best.

    I dug up the ground sowed all my seeds

    Said a small prayer for strong, healthy weeds.

    I watered at night with a five-gallon pail

    Mosquitoes went hungry for I wore a veil.

    Seven months went by; I thought I would die

    Till the Halloween moon was high in the sky.

    At night I went out, in a camouflage suit

    Used my corn knife to chop down the loot.

    I hung it up to dry where it couldn’t be found.

    Came back and got it, when it had turned brown.

    I trimmed off the buds, stuffed them in bags

    Called all my friends and passed out free drags.

    In less than a week my crop was gone

    I flew to St. Thomas with a love hungry blonde!!

  3. a 15 to 20 percent tax on top of the 20 to 25 percent tax on your paycheck. We're getting near a 50% tax rate. What exactly do I get for that money? At that rate we should be living in a socialist utopia but I think foreign countries get more of my money than I do.

  4. When you needed money dealing drugs was illegal. When politicians needed money then dealing drugs is called a tax.
    They'll tell you that drug legalization will prevent crime but then tax it at a rate nearly TWICE the street price and then ask for more tax money to fight this 'crime'…'s all orchestrated theft.
    Free country? I think not. You need a license to do anything and there is a tax on everything.

  5. This just makes it easier and cheaper to be illegal and not have to worry about law enforcement.

    Will it be taxed more than alcohol and/or cigarettes?

  7. TJ Marx says:

    You'll never be able to tax cannabis enough to pay for all the damage to the economy and community it will do.

  8. HL Muench says:

    Like liquor and gambling it’s only illegal until the mob, or gov or whatever you want to call them, has crushed the regular people out of supporting themselves or profiting at all. Then they say, we’ll take it from here and you can pay us to get in on our racket. It’s not capitalism or freedom.
