    I can just picture it.

    yes this late 2008 screaming purple bandit has a bit too much head for me, I prefer a more subtle flavor. However, the pull is consistent and finishes with a well bodied texture. An aftertaste reminiscent of nutty cheese.

    Serve with dorritos and sponge bob.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    I can definitely see a market with food pairing, just like wine. Though, instead of bread with vinegar/olive oil and cheeses it will be captain crunch and funoins.

    the tart textured melange of northeastern spider monkey green screamer helps bring out the flavor of the pile of fun size kit kats you stole from your little sisters halloween candy

    Since perscriptions are not taxed in california, how will weed help the calif economy at all. This thread is fail
    First off, California already collects taxes on medical marijuana.

    The board ultimately decided that medical marijuana was not exempt from sales taxes because it was not dispensed by a pharmacist or approved by the Food and Drug Administration as a medication.

    Secondly this thread is about legislation to allow distribution and selling of NON-MEDICAL Marijuana. A legalized venue of distribution with a $50/OZ tax to be levied upon the growers, and additional sales tax at the point of distribution is estimated at generating over a $1 Billion in revenue.

    from the article in the OP:

    The state's tax collectors estimate the bill would bring in about $1.3 billion in much-needed revenue a year, offsetting some of the billions in service cuts and spending reductions outlined in the recently approved state budget.

    and on the subject of California's proposed legalization Congresswoman Sanchez weighed in on it saying "maybe it would be a good pilot program":

    The first half of the clip is talking about Mexican cartel violence, from about 2:40 on it is on the subject of legalization.

    There is so much business potential for not only suppliers but for marketers. I can see expansive social networks and critique businesses similar to beer and wine.


    Marijuana requires a perscription, by law perscriptions are exempt from taxes.

    I don't think the article is speaking of prescription marijuana when it speaks of legalizing marijuana, seeing as prescription marijuana is already legal in California.

    Legalizing marijuana to be bought and sold legally will be taxed. No different than cigarettes.
