Default Pro-Pot Group Warns Against “Excessive Taxation”

Pro-Pot Group Warns Against “Excessive Taxation” Of Marijuana

BOSTON (AP) — A group pushing for a 2016 ballot question to legalize the recreational use of marijuana in Massachusetts is warning against imposing what they call excessive taxation on the sale of pot.

Bay State Repeal says they welcome a bill filed by more than a dozen Massachusetts lawmakers that would allow marijuana to be taxed and regulated like alcohol.

The bill would also let adults 21 years or older grow limited amounts of marijuana.

But the pro-marijuana group says that if taxes and fees are too high, they will force up the cost of legal pot and help maintain a marijuana black market in the state.

They say that could have the unintended consequence of giving minors the ability to continue purchasing marijuana illegally.

Gov. Charlie Baker has said he opposes legalizing marijuana.

Anyone who thinks the Herb should be kept illegal is a traitor to Humanity.

Not one single recorded death throughout history and a thousand positive uses, and not just the bud.

Everything about it, from its amazingly short growth time to the improved health of the soil once cultivated makes it truly a wonder plant.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do, and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same, as we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
