Tom_Slick: Which is why more people drink moonshine than legal whiskey, right? When pot is legal, the penalties for selling it untaxed will be harsh, as harsh as untaxed tobacco and liquor. Doing 2 years in federal prison for selling an untaxed legal product will not appeal to most people. Like tobacco their probably will be a "grow for personal use" provision, but again the penalties for selling it will be too harsh for the average person growing their own weed.
WTF Indeed: Legal, taxed pot will always be more expensive than illegal, untaxed pot. Market forces will push people to continue buying from illegal sources.
