Sell herb. Tax it. Deficit paid with a lot more more left over.
Absolutely. I hear the underground saffron market is booming.
Take the tax to $10 a joint. Assume every single person in the US smokes a joint every day. All 300 million of us lighting up every single day, with a $10 per joint tax.
We'd raise $1,095 billion. Wouldn't cover last year's deficit nor this year's deficit. Nor any of the next 4 projected deficits.
Methinks you've been smoking a bit too much 420 already, based upon your statement without making a simple reality check...
