Re: Cannabis use on board
Iím not clear what youíre arguing Minnewaska. Thereís plenty of evidence that raising the cost on an item, either through taxation or other means, can result in lower usage of said item, be it tobacco, booze or gasoline. The critical factor for taxation is to make sure the level is below the threshold for the creation of a viable black market.
Canadian governments have said they donít expect significant revenue from cannabis taxation. Iím sure it will be more than that, but as caberg says, sin taxes currently constitute a very small revenue stream for Canadian governments. I canít see cannabis changing this.
Why go fast, when you can go slow.
