So......Cannabis is the devils tobaccy until things get really bad financially for the gob'mint,
and then the shmucks realized they could tax the hell out of it and suddenly it is OK.
What a laugh!!!
problem is the jackases are charging such a high tax it is still cheaper to go through an "illicit" dealer.

I think the black market in pot will dry up prettly quick when large scale growing gets going...supply/damand donchaknow...of course the liquor and tobacco industries will push against legalization, but it's too late...and it's a real black eye to gvmnt that so many lives were harmed in the senseless drug war...as usual, hippies were right all along...no if we could just get folks weaned off materialism and raping the planet, we'll be getting somewhere...

It's still a cash business. Where there is cash there will be crime. If some criminal wants to make a huge haul, hit up a dispensary. They'll probably do better than knocking over a bank. Key is to somehow allow banking to exist alongside legal weed. Speaking of, it is a weed. It will grow. Everywhere. Like it always used to. At that point taxing it will become useless. The cash crops will be in the hard to grow and desirable strains or in bulk hemp for fabric production, like it always used to. I think what you are seeing is a pre-post-prohibition world unfolding. It's interesting for people, government and business alike.
As for the harder drugs, the libertarian in me wants them all to be unregulated. The parent in me urges caution.
