If we were to apply the same tax we put on booze or tobacco (pick one)
to marijuana, how much revenue could we generate? As legitimate
business people, the growers and sellers would have to declare their
incomes (more tax dollars). All of this is, of course, moot as long as
there are federal laws against cannabis possession.
