Re: “Lawmakers Weigh a 25 Percent Marijuana Tax

Then the fact that they have not address the problems with the medical cannabis program. It is sad that vermont government is far more dangerous to the patients on the Vermont marijuana registry because they have not advanced the medical cannabis program in any way shape or form. They are concerned about getting money to fund a criminal reform bill rather than fixing the medical cannabis program first. Patients before taxes and regulations on cannabis which is truly prohibition disguised as legalization by taxing cannabis and regulations on it. Vermont Marijuana policy project has a huge lobbyists pushing a Washington DC agenda a national agenda. Look at the other States that have legalization and only one has been successfully with out major impact from Mpp that is Colorado..Washington state has a failed medical cannabis program due to legalization now. Oregon has issues. Alaska is doing well without Mpp. In Maine they have the best regulated medical cannabis program in the USA and Marijuana Policy project is trying to screw it up. In New Hampshire after years of Matt Simon of Mpp being there they still have no medical cannabis program. Don't let Mpp or Vermont cannabis collaborative or dictate the cannabis industry.

Re: “Lawmakers Weigh a 25 Percent Marijuana Tax

In all do respect to the government of Vermont. 25 % to legalization is absurd. Next thing is that you can't compete with a black market because those who sell or import cannabis have no over head. Many of them who are black market growers can make there own prices. If someone or a group of people grow on a large or small scale theyou have only there investment and the return on it. They don't have a overhead of taxes. If they choose to sell 1 pounder of cannabis at 2000 dollars they can. If the person who purchased it cares to sell it by the oz at 275 or 250 to cover the cost of the original 2000 dollars they can. Vermont government can't compete with the black market especially when it has banned home growers from the bill..
