I’ve no idea what pot goes for, but I’m guessing it isn’t much higher than tobacco.

Average Cost: One Ounce of Medium Quality Marijuana $266

Average Cost: One “Joint” of Medium Quality Marijuana $6.18

According to this site…

https://www.oxfordtreatment.com/substance-abuse/marijuana/average-cost-of-marijuana/

2 packs of cigarettes = about an once of tobacco. Call it $10?

This isn’t about cost though. The entitled are willing to pay the price if it means they won’t be arrested. They couldn’t care less if crime increases; or if you are impacted by it.

I don't believe that you can compare them purely by weight.   I know people that don't smoke an entire marijuana cigarette in a sitting but will inhale three or four tobacco cigarettes at a time.  


As for your last little bit there, you keep harping on that but have yet to provide any evidence of an increase in crime.  You keep trying to insult other's intelligence by saying that they lack common sense if they don't agree but you have yet to back it up with any studies, anecdotes or evidence of an actual crime increase in any place that it is legal.

I could post the stories that show crime rates increase, and for every one I post you can post one that shows they don’t. If you don’t smoke weed and you are for legalization because you think outlawing it is a government overreach, you won’t really care if crime increases; will you?

Fast cars, women, and rock and roll music all encourage crime rates to increase (common sense), but we don't seem to ban them.

Freedom, and all, has its costs.

Half the country agrees with you. Illinois hits the weed lottery next month. I doubt Tennessee will be far behind.

Look at the bright side: With the extra $$ from weed taxation perhaps the non-toker's taxes will go down. :whistle:
