Price & convenience are the most important factors--(in all honesty) That is why there are still bootleggers & moonshiners-
Canada B.C. one ounce of very high grade pot if you know where to buy it is $125 to $140 or $4.46 to $5 a gram not $10 they are going to lose and lose big. I,m betting the dealers are going to go even lower just to make sure the government is out
$3.5 million in 8 houses? that's $437,500 of dope per house. I.m guessing more than 19 plants each, unless they were really large plants eh?
I was wondering the winery's have wine and cheese party's, I wonder if the pot stores will have a weed and Doritos party.
Of course the black market is alive and well thanks to Government greed. Over tax any commodity and there will be a black market. I should think any Government would have learned that lesson from alcohol prohibition days. Too many factions fighting over large perceived profits.
I hope the Federal and Provincial governments of Canada read this article and heed it as a warning. Learn from the Colorado situation.
My dealer doesn't pay taxes and provide door to door services.
The provincial governments ate building million dollar stores in the hopes of milking the consumer, i still think they will lose money on pot!
Same thing is going to happen in canada.So the libliers won't get a penny out of the pot tax.LOL
going to be booming in Canada too.the illegal dealers have like a 30 year head start unfortunately..aliot of people making tax free very easily by dealing. they will be undercutting store prices as well.thats pretty much a guarantee I would assume..
