    I assume.

    •  I would think so, but that would be an extra (0+ / 0-)

      level of problems for a shooter - lack of effective quality control could make misfires more likely, and should they be discovered (either from a legal or an illegal shooting) the person with the illegal bullets would be in trouble even if they were on the right side of any shootout.

        So----you REALLY want to increase the police force?  Laws without enforcement are meaningless.

        There's a heavy federal tax on marijuana---how many people are paying it?

        •  I'd be very surprised to hear of a federal (0+ / 0-)

          tax on marijuana, since it's an illegal substance in all forms.  I have been hearing how the medical dispensary operators are having problems because they can't declare income for tax purposes (they'd be self-incriminating).  They also have problems with banking because banks (federally insured) have to keep their money clear from drug money.  Colorado is still waiting on guidance from the feds on how to handle issues arising from the legalization of marijuana at the state level.  I just don't think there's such a thing as a federal tax on marijuana, but hey, enlighten me.
