That would be because it is illegal  If you were able to buy it from a local gas stations like you can beer and Cigarettes all those bad drug dealers would be out of a job. Who wouldn't pay a little more to avoid that awkward meeting between you and the guy selling you pot. If weed is illegal alchol should be too. There is zero difference in them except the 24,000 body count.........

With marijuana being so easy to produce, I think it would be different than the beer/cigarette convenience.  Only time will tell.

9/10 people would pay a little more to avoid a dark alley transaction.

I don't think buying weed is typically a dark alley transaction.

Beer is easy to produce. As are cigarettes. All you need is tobacco and rolling paper. Lots of people make beer out of their garage. There's not a market for them to sell it on, though.

Cartels and gangs exist because their product is illegal. How many stories have you read about assassinations or inter-company violence going on at Anheuser-Busch or Phillip Morris?

Perhaps I had the wrong impression, but I know that Tobacco is one of the more difficult crops to maintain and that beer/alcohol takes a lot of patience to make properly.

They have vending machines for rolling your own smokes.

Well cannabis doesn't just pop out of the soil overnight, either. Certain alcohols like moonshine are easy as hell to make .But most people don't bother because it's much easier to buy it. The same would be true if marijuana were a legal, regulated commodity .

Certainly a possiblity.  But marijuana is one of the more durable and easiest crops to grow in the world FWIW.

Which is why the United States is missing out on an IMMENSE source of revenue. Do you know how much of a dent we could put in the national debt if marijuana had a tax on it like cigarettes?

Forgive me for continuing to disagree, but I trust that this government will find some way to Posted Image that up.  It's just too good to be true.

This is pretty much the only reason why I think marijuana being legalized could be good. Maybe it would distract the government from taxing sugary foods and drinks like they want to right now...

Oh I speed all the time, and when I got my two tickets I didn't bitch or whine like a baby because I KNEW I was speeding. Again, my point is that if you knowingly break the law and get caught, you have nobody to blame but yourself. Complaining about the police isn't the issue. It's not the police's fault I got a speeding ticket for driving 90 MPH; it was my fault for driving 90 MPH.

Your second paragraph is pretty much exactly what I said in my posts following the one you quoted.

my problem is not with the crime, its with the punishment.  essentially, i think its overboard for a victimless crime and im not blaming the cops (they are just doing their job), just the justice system.

And I'm not disagreeing with you there, but again, it's the law and the people busted knew it was the law. They can't be too upset.
