Pot Taxes: Epic Fail

Don’t be so quick to embrace marijuana taxes. There shouldn’t even be a tax: savings from non-enforcement is an order of magnitude greater. Adding taxes on top of that is double-dipping. They’re shooting themselves in the foot with high taxes; take budget from the drug squad windfall savings instead.

Even a mere 0.0001% tax demands an armed bureaucracy prepared to use all its powers and might to enforce its mandate under penalty of your death at the end of a qualified immunity gun. A bureaucracy’s prime motive is to grow and increase power and staff, so it’ll only get bigger and demand an ever-higher tax.

It’ll never actually be legal if any tax is owed the government, instead it’ll be like the old days of Revenooers busting stills in the woods.

Just. Say. No.
