Bill to legalize Marijuana introduced in PA Senate

So the PA State stores would sell it. That would bring in far and away more money to the state than any casinos. And it would be very interesting in that the feds couldn't do anything, since the state of PA would be selling it directly. Interesting, although this will not pass with our current governor.

Yeah the angle that our state owned and operated stores would be the ones selling this is pretty unique, all of the other states that legalized allowed for private distribution. The money this could generate for PA would be ridiculous.

And if state stores join the rest of the Union and get privatized?

I'd rather them stay public if they are going to sell weed. That way the feds will be in a giant pickle haha. It is worth it to screw the feds.

I'm all for it. And no, I dont smoke. The $$ from taxes could go a long way. Treat it the same as alcohol with regards to impairment while in a vehicle and public intoxication and things of that nature.

Yet somehow we will still have an insane amount of taxes levied upon the people and we won't really see a dime of it appear to help anywhere. Funny how that works.

What Pitts said. Does anyone think the state will actually appropriate these revenues intelligently?

:thumb: The casinos were supposed to remove our property taxes. I don't think I've heard a word of that since the licenses were awarded.

Same with the Pittsburgh Onorato tax.

Same with the licensing of the PA Turnpike.

The problem with casinos is that everyone already legalized casinos. If PA did this they would be the first state in the NE to do this. We would gain insane pot tourism from NY and Virginia.

Yeah it is not going to get anywhere. But in my opinion, it should. This is going to happen anyway eventually. Why not be first and get the monetary rewards instead of being last (like with Casinos) and get nothing.
