Would Taxing Cannabis Help Our State And Local Governments Financially – Bong’s Mission

My personal mission to support the YES ON PROP 19 campaign continues by explaining the financial benefits of legalizing Cannabis. With less than a month until this historic vote takes place, it’s more important now, than ever, to make sure people have the facts.

Cannabis Prohibition Has Failed

Today, hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars are wasted enforcing the failed prohibition of cannabis (also known as marijuana). Statistically proven, cannabis is easier for kids to get than alcohol because illegal sellers/dealers aren’t concerned with how old their customers are.

Prohibition has created a violent criminal market run by international drug cartels. Police waste valuable resources targeting non-violent cannabis consumers, while thousands of violent crimes go unsolved. And there is $14 billion in marijuana sales every year in California, but our debt-ridden state sees none of the revenue that would come from controlling and taxing it.
