if it were legal and regulated like cigarettes it should cost no more than ~ $2 a gram, it would probably be sold by the O

if it were regulated like alcohol I could see it costing as much as 10 a gram

just like alcohol and tobacco it can be home made but virtually NOBODY does it because people are fucking lazy. Personally I would grow my own but I also want to grow my own tobacco and thats dirt cheap

If it were legal, I would have a whole closet full of plants. I wouldn't buy it.

However, I would spend money on various seeds, so the government could get it's cut there.

Not only that, the government could make it illegal to grow without first paying a tax for each plant. Sure it's not perfect, but they could fine whoever doesn't pay for it. :shrug:

i think that people would still buy government grown marijuana, just beacause it would be more potent than the average growers bud. And they could just tax that... and they'd also run drug dealers out of business so they would be making the money instead of them... But drug dealers still put money into the economy because alot of drug dealers are normal people... but they sell drugs instead of working for someone. Either way they'd profit...

well some states have laws on the books to tax illegal drugs.  these laws are put in place mainly to increase charges.

you know what i did in english class? I came to class stoned out of my mind every day, i chugged vodka in the back of class, i put dead fish in the ceiling tiles. i put a gallon of old milk and orange juice in the file cabinet before winter vacation. i brought snakes in a tied up sweater and let them loose during class. i didnt go to school to learn, i went because i had to. i didnt care, and i didn't fucking listen to that stupid bitch. and i still don't fucking care. i tore the pages out of her books and burned them, and threw away all the books in the class, two books per day.  :twobooks:

That's just dumb.  Tobacco can be grown easily as well but you don't see people growing it much for personal use because they'd rather go to the store. The same would happen if weed was legal I reckon.

Is a 16 year old guy having sex w/a 16 year old girl a pedophile?
If not, then how is a 30 year old considered a pedophile for doing the same thing?
I think y'all need to look up the definition for pedophile.
