    If we tax it that much then people will just be getting their pot off the street like they do now.

    If you believe in Jesus Christ put this in your profile and don't just ignore this, because in the Bible it says, ‘If you deny me, I will deny you in front of my Father in the gates of Heaven.’

    You did say 'hella big'.

    In any case, the money the government loses by not putting on a tax would be far outweighed by the savings from street dealers going out of business.

    Yes, but saying 'hella big' sounds like $20 tax for every $1 of pot.

    I don't really think we should tax tobacco or pot more than anything else though, why should someone pay more taxes on pot than a Wii?

    As a deterrent to using it.

    Why does the government have to deter people from using pot, shouldn't the negative effects of pot be what deters the user, and not an extra 15 cents tax?

    No.

    People don't smoke pot to get sick >.>

    Making it a bit more expensive just makes managing a smoking habit a bit harder, which can be a deterrent.

    Also, adding a tax can allow us to pay for anti-smoking campaigns and for the ensuing health care costs + state revenue. It's a win-win, rather.

    I never said people smoke pot to get sick, what I was trying to say is that we shouldn't add another reason not to smoke pot. The smoker determines that it is worth it to damage his health to get a high, we shouldn't make it even worse for the addict by charging extra taxes.

    I think the purpose of the tax is rather to give the addict another reason to break the addiction.

    Of course, in reality its just an easy way to make money.

    Yes, it does give the addict another reason to break the addiction, but why try making it bad enough for the addict to quit? Shouldn't we instead just let the user smoke his pot knowing he's happier that way? Because if he's less happy then he would just stop on his own.

    I agree with your second statement, but I don't see why they don't just tax everything the same amount, or even better, just put it all into one income tax, eliminating tax returns, property tax, etc (and taking the same percentage out of everyone's income, I find it ridiculous that millionaires, who worked to get there, have to give away 50% of there income just because they worked harder).

    What are you talking about? It isn't very harmful compared to other drugs; granted, ideal is not take any at all. For pot, because just like smoking, it isn't exactly good for you, and we have taxes on most other drugs, including alcohol and cigarettes.

    I know pot is bad for you, so do the users, but why should the government charge more money just because it's unhealthy.

    To deter excessive use and because people will still pay it. Good for the government, good for the country and good for the citizen in the long run.

    I really believe that the government should have no say on marijuana use. Let the states decide, and let the people vote.
