"Scheduled to take effect on New Year's Day, the measure created a special business tax rate for the pot clubs, which now pay the same $1.20 for every $1,000 in gross sales applied to all retail businesses. The new rate will be $18."

that's sweet??? you can get it pretty much "legally" there now. all they're doing is putting a extra high tobacco-like tax on it. far from sweet my friend.

It's sweet because California needs the funds. Also this is seen as a step to legalize marijuana for recreational purposes. Once there is more competition the prices will come down enough to offset the cost of the taxes. Thus making legal weed cheaper than illegal weed.

Also as long as marijuana is technically illegal you always run the risk of getting arrested or losing your job if you're drug tested. If it were legal I would assume employers would no longer test for marijuana, and treat you like someone who drinks alcohol.

i agree with all that except for the high tax.

The tax is only on commercial sales. If you have plants and grow your own medicine? No tax on that in California. That's what will keep the taxes in check on cannabis. This is good news.
