I could have been clearer. I meant tax retail canabis, the same way alcohol
works. Home brew wine and beer is not taxed, but most people would still
rather pay the extra to let someone else brew it and serve it to them in
comfortable suuroundings. I'd imagine if canabis was legal, widely available
and taxed at a simlar rate to beer and wine then most people wouldn't bother
growing their own but good luck to anyone who wants to.
