We need some of that trickle-down effect.

I'm not into weed, but this is the kind of thing that makes me want to move to Canada.

There's already concern that pot will be too expensive to sell or buy for many Canadians.  The VAT-style tax here on such items is 13%, to which they are talking they will add a flat 2.3%.  Many of the provinces bar growing for personal consumption (though there's little mechanism to do much besides fine them), and any pot sold has to come from a federally licensed facility-- of which there are few right now.

A total of 15.3% tax and no access?  Should be enough to sustain a black market.

Well, that's what they have now- a largely decriminalized product.  This is less about freedom to enjoy a relatively harmless substance, and more about the government gaining a new revenue stream.

Well, yeah, that's the hope for here too, that the revenue stream aspect will win out.

So, you guys are OK with the government charging you to do with your body as you wish?

I'm OK with them taxing products, like they already do with many others.

Not me.  As long as what I'm doing is relatively safe for myself and others, the government should have no interest.  Taking it a step further, as long as I'm not trying to market or sell the product to others, I should be able to make such products for my own consumption.

I do care about society having to pay for rehab or damage caused by drunk driving of a single individual.

Fuck taxes.

The government takes away your right to do "something" and then charges you to do that "something".  Sounds logical.

The government should pay you for being such an excellent citizen.

They tax all kinds of things.  I don't know why this is any different from gas or alcohol, among other things.

It's not and I disagree with those taxes also.

Yeah, you don't want to buy gas or alcohol here, either.

The only difference is that they didn't take away our right to do those things and then tax them (well, not in the last 100 years).
