As I said, not much will change except maybe some of the criminal element will be reduced.

You are forgetting the criminal element within government, which will now increase as a result of legalizing marijuana.  So I don't really think there will be much of an offset of the criminal element.  Particularly now that California has devolved into the immorality of drug pushers.  In a few more years California will find that they absolutely must have the revenue from marijuana sales.  Kind of like the way our federal government currently taxes alcohol and tobacco.  When you tax vices you end up with a government that pushes those vices to ensure their revenue is not jeopardized.

I don't think it will reduce the criminal element. They're going to tax it to oblivion and create an even larger black market.

Like no one is doing that now?


It is really hard to believe that you are defending pot.  I guess we know what you do in your spare time.

IMO, the hypocrisy element here, with respect to California, is the pot being marketed that will be smoked (not marketed mixed in food, drinks, and other created ways to attract current and new users, etc.).

California taxes the hell out of cigarettes ($2.87/pack) predicated on the carcinogens in tobacco, and that heavily taxing cigarettes will induce more smokers to quit -- for their own good (health reasons).

Now, in order to rake in millions of new tax dollars -- California is legally allowing marketing of a product rife with carcinogens and loads of carbon monoxide!

As such, that basically indicates to me that California (governments) are really more interested in the tax revenue collected from cigarettes and other tobacco containing products -- and now pot -- than they are concerned with the health of tobacco and pot smokers.

Legalizing pot is a slick way to create more 'prohibted' persons for gun ownership. Even truckers would be at risk for losing their CDL's(commercial drivers license).

You may have hit the nail on the head.  I know someone in CO. that has been working, legally, on a huge pot farm.  He is moving back to SD because he can't advance in his job without losing his CCW, and the rights to own guns.  This kid refuse to climb up the ladder at that cost!!!  Angry  There is more then meets the eyes here, *maybe*??

There will be an increase in lung cancer in California in the next twenty years.  What will they give them then?

Pot sales will be like State Lotteries. The taxes are larger than the payouts.
The cartel will win in the end selling Pot. The cartel loves taxes...
then they get the business when the taxes get too high. Then the states will find some new product to tax. Harmful or not.

Has that been proven?
