    Sure. However given the price of legal marijuana being so high [especially with the taxation] it leaves open the door for a Black market.

    Personally i would charge lower prices when selling a product for which i had to pay taxes/buiness rates and follow regulations then i would for selling a product for which i risked imprisionment or serious bodily harm/death at the hands of other criminals. I fail to see how a black market could compete. If so, why do we barely see a black market for alcohol where it is legal, even in regions like Scandanvia which charge 10 Euros a pint?

    On the federal level yes, but I think the states can decide for themselves. Personally I don't care that much.

    Criminals don't think like you do. If they see a lucrative market, they pounce.

    Avoiding charging the tax makes for a much higher profit margin.
