What Is A Fair Tax For Marijuana Sales?

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, November, 23rd 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-taxSomething that has always worried me is that when marijuana legalization is implemented, it will be taxed so high that the transition won’t be as successful as it could be. One of the biggest arguments that we have made for so many years in support of marijuana legalization is that it would demolish the black market. However, that will only work if legal marijuana prices are better than the black market prices for the same thing. Most people aren’t going to drastically change their spending habits to pay a significantly higher price.
 
I think it’s going to be hard to find a marijuana tax rate that pleases everyone. If it’s too low it won’t generate the revenue that was promised to the government, which opponents will point to early and often. On the other hand, too high of a tax will push customers away from the legal market and into the black market. What do readers think is a fair rate? I personally think that proposals for a 30%+ tax on marijuana is way too high in Colorado and Washington. I would personally feel more comfortable at about 10%, which is still very high compared to other taxed products.

Waking Life

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, November, 23rd 2013 by THCFinder
waking-life-smoking-weedMarijuana smokers always want to be stoned. There's an extreme difference between the world sober and the world stoned. A lot of people who use marijuana for anxiety claim that they have this feeling. When sober, the world is full of things that stress stoners out. From family and friends to work and school, we live in a harsh world. With all of the laws in place today, marijuana allows us stoners avoid "waking life" as it's called.
 
It's not recommended that you use marijuana as an escape from reality because that's not exactly what it is. Smoking the plant gives the user the ability to function normally during day to day activity. Whether the person experiences pain or a mental disorder like depression or anxiety, cannabis creates the feeling that there is no pain, sadness, or stressors. While there are some things in the world that people have an extremely hard time dealing with, it is possible to utilize cannabis so that you can go about your day without worry.
 
Some people really struggle to make it through the day without their medicine. It's hard to even get out of bed for particular patients. When your waking life is full of aches, why would you want to get up in the morning? By smoking a single bowl of cannabis, the day doesn't seem as tedious. There are thousands of people in the United States alone that suffer from illnesses that can be effected positively by THC and CBD, as well as the other substances in cannabis.
 
It's not an escape from reality. It's a way to forget about the issues that plague every day life. Smoking weed isn't like doing crack. Daily functions are still completely doable, if not more manageable. The illegality of marijuana prevents patients from going about their days because their waking life is full of pain and suffering. Marijuana doesn't let you escape but it enhances the good things and fades away the bad. Seeing as how the human body has a complete system for processing THC, how can we argue against the fact that perhaps waking life is actually when using marijuana?
