  •  MMJ taxes produced 2.2 million in 2010 (0+ / 0-)

    for the state and 5 mil in 2011. That's a chunk of change for the state. Legalized weed could eclipse those numbers.

    I think it is a great boon for cottage industries related to hemp production. It's an untapped market and I hope they don't regulate it to death.

    After all is said and done, a lot more is said than done.

      in the Amendment. There is also a limit on taxation, I think it is capped at 15%. I think my point is that there will be a tax and cottage industry boon, but it pales in significance to the liquor industry. And I am sure there is a lot of uptightness from Big Pharma regarding the interference with chronic use antianxiety drugs like Xanax , antispasmodics, antinausea etc.
