Comment: less than tobacco

(See in situ)

less than tobacco

A bag of weed should be cheaper than an equal amount of tobacco since it requires less proccessing. And I mean the would-be real price of tobacco - sans all the greedy taxes politicians have slapped on it for "punishment" purposes. Probably $2 for an unprocessed ounce in a baggie, a few dollars more for "blends" with fancy packaging, and a slick advertising campaign.

The black market will continue for a long time, because even once they legalize they will insist on over pricing and over taxing.
