So, NH wants to do for marijuana what they have done for liquor? Being the "go to" place for out of state residents?

http://www.concordmonitor.com/home/7703983-95/nh-liquor-sales-hit-re co rd-in-fiscal-2013-but-revenue-came-in-below-target

More than half of New Hampshire's liquor sales are made to out-of-state residents. The top five stores in terms of sales last year are all located on or near the state's borders: the two stores on Interstate 95 in Hampton plus stores in Portsmouth, Salem and Nashua.
Liquor and wine sales are a major source of revenue for New Hampshire's state government.

Wasilla Hillbilly: SkorzenyNinja: Just dropping in to say that I just got back from the Northern Lights recreational marijuana shop in Edgewater, Colorado. I legally purchased 1/8 of Sour Diesel, 1/8 of Apollo 13, some gummy bear edibles and a bottle of sarsaparilla flavored "elixer".

Happy New Years from Rocky Mountain High Colorado!

very cool, man. Mind sharing the prices?

$15 for the edibles and $55 per eighth. I'm sure the price will go down as more shops get their licenses and start selling recreational weed. It was $170 for everything. Keep in mind the tax on everything is 30%.

LittleSmitty: The potential for revenue is huge, and when put in that perspective, well big money will prevail.

It does go around the world.

it'll never, ever happen

There will be some hold outs, and some won't budge, but once states see the potential for tax revenue, the opposition will start to evaporate. Consider this: Colorado already sees about $9 million in tax revenue from Medical mj, mostly from license fees. With recreational cannabis, there will be a 25% tax imposed. Growers can barely keep up with demand as it is. Now that recreational cannabis is legal, there will be be even more permits, and the recreational market is probably bigger than the medical market. The potential for revenue is huge, and when put in that perspective, well big money will prevail.

This is a step towards equality. Alcohol and tobacco are both worse for you than cannabis

Cannabis is the English word ... the fact the US uses the Spanish word marijuana speaks volumes to the political history of this issue.
