$18 for every $1000 in sales is 1.8% tax. I wouldn't call that high. I would gladly pay a 10% tax if I could get good quality legal bud from a store. I would know that I'm getting the exact quantity I paid for. I wouldn't have to worry about getting robbed, or arrested. The benefits definitely out weigh the only negative, which is the added tax. And like I said before eventually the price for the weed would come down once it's legal. Which is also one of the top reasons why weed should be legal.

pfft, oh ok. i read it wrong. i thought it said they were raising it to 18%. lol sorry. yeah 1.8% isn't bad. that's NOT where it will stay though. it will go the same route as tobacco eventually.

Probably. Of course how bad it is all depends on the price of weed in the first place. I think a pack of cigarettes contains about an 1/8 to a 1/4 oz of tabacoo. Including tax you pay $10 or less for a pack of cigarettes. The same amount of illegal marijuana costs $40 to $80 without tax. So if they can reduce the price of weed including tax to $10 - $20 a pack that would be great.
