Oregon just reported distributing $28,000,000 in what I take for the first taxes on the local pot industry.

No doubt they were big time sellers, but why inflate the prices? They make it look like they put a dent in the market while what comes in the country from Mexico every day makes this grow house look small scale.

Many call it "Police Math", which is made up nonsense with no real basis in reality. Depending on the area, sometimes they weigh the pots, dirt, stalks, fertilizer, and the rest and add that up as though it's that much in actual sell-able flower, then multiply it by what they think a pound sells for at retail on New Years Eve or some nonsense. It's really just about stacking charges and inflating headlines and other bullshit. I bet you'd get a more accurate sense of what was actually seized if you just divide the number by 4 or 5.

Granted - it's only partially the police's fault, they didn't write the stupid ass math rules.

But it's still nonsense, and just plain wrong / a perversion of justice in every regard.

They multiply that weight by what the pot would sell for by the gram (highest price per unit) to get an astronomical dollar figure. But these guys aren't going to be selling 3,000lbs by gram bags, that's for sure.

You know I'm sure CNN will turn it around to be racist. These poor Vietnamese couldn't survive because the racist people in Georgia weren't eating at their Vietnamese restaurants so they had to resort to growing pot to feed their families........LOLOL

Yeah, it's all about the taxes now. In 2017 Colorado has already surpassed $1 Billion in legal sales in the first 9mos, which generated about $125M in taxes in the same period (there was an article about it in the Denver Post recently, outlining the numbers). And once the Recreational aspect is going full bore in California, many think it'll be 3-5x bigger.
...


I read that article linked via the DP and they said taxes and fees so far this year from MJ products were $162M. I also read another article claiming that since 2014 the state of CO has collected a half billion in taxes. And that the rate of tax collections is still growing from year to year. In 2016 it took 10 months to sell a billion dollars worth of MJ, but in 2017 it took 8 months. Link to article

Anyhow, was mostly just trying to add some additional clarification.

No, no. You're confusing these entrepreneurs with the pilots of that Korean airlines that nosedived at SFO a few years back! Like Sum Ting Wong, remember?

Give them credit for promoting "Made in the USA!"

I sincerely wish that all other states would legalize it.
Just so all the bi-polar schizo-effective disorder low lifes that moved to Colorado would have new opportunities to go somewhere else congenial to self medicate and gigge in their cheerios.

Maybe there are crowds of productive, hard-working, tax-paying middle-class upstanding citizens who toke a doobie every once in a while, but that's not what I see.

Just the opppsite.

I regularly hear people who voted in favor of it express how they had no idea what the result would be. They now regret being so uninformed and have changed 180.

Last year I was talking with some drug and alcohol councilors attached to a local drug court, during our discussion they told me that Oregon is starting to see an increase in child welfare cases. The cause is neglect based upon parents who are high on Marijuana.
