Some states have higher cannabis taxes, while a few of the ones with only medical marijuana programs do not collect taxes from patients
I’m glad to see that the resistance against the legalization of cannabis is starting to lose steam. When I was a kid, we were heavily brainwashed into believing that marijuana was a dangerous gateway drug. There were only two or three states with medical marijuana at the time, and it wasn’t something I even knew about until I was much older. My parents were progressive and tried to give me a balanced education on the danger of drugs, putting a heavy emphasis on the risks associated with drinking alcohol. I have a number of alcoholics on both sides of my family, so it makes plenty of sense to me that they would fear me becoming a drunk. I learned in college at the University of New Mexico that alcohol is the true gateway drug. Most of the students I knew who smoked weed all had alcohol first at one point or another during a family gathering. It makes you wonder if they would have any interest in intoxicants at all if they hadn’t been desensitized towards liquor. I still live in Albuquerque, this time in an apartment near Tingley Field. My purchases at the recreational cannabis stores involve both state and city taxes. If I opt to become a medical marijuana patient in New Mexico, my tax bill at the dispensary is much lower. Right now it’s over 12% for all recreational cannabis customers. Some states have higher cannabis taxes, while a few of the ones with only medical marijuana programs do not collect taxes from patients. In New Mexico, these taxes are instrumental in helping the education system.
