The wages of sin are taxes

One of the primary reasons why the states of Colorado and Washington finally capitulated to the legalization of marijuana was because of economics.  Ever since the collapse of the housing bubble and the 2008 Credit Crisis that saw millions lose their homes and jobs, state and municipal revenues have fallen off a cliff in many areas around the country.
And the windfall that has come from the legalization of marijuana is just one of many revenue streams that states are now relying upon as the return of ‘sin taxes’ to the limelight are usurping religious, social, and liberal agendas to end these activities all across the country.

New international study shows Pot use much safer than alcohol

In a new international study published in the journal, Scientific Reports, a group of researchers found that marijuana use as a recreational drug was much safer, by the magnitude of 114 times safer, than even the use of alcohol by individuals.
The study took a comparative look at several drugs normally used in a recreational way by people, and their risk factors for potential mortality if lethal doses of the drugs are consumed.  In fact, one of the most interesting findings from the study is that someone is more likely to die from an overdose of tobacco than from a lethal dose of cannabis.

Americans to feel the real angst of inflation with rising alcohol prices

Oil and gasoline inflation?  Food inflation?  Try rising inflation for alcohol.

As in the Great Depression and Prohibition, the desire to consume alcohol transcends many ethical and physical needs in the lives of many Americans.  This is why the rising cost to buy beer, liquor, and wine may have a much larger consequence over time than rising prices in food, which the government is more than happy to subsidize.

But if there is one thing that is sure to kindle the revolutionary spirits it is the soaring price of booze. As it just so happens, ships are parked in the Boston harbor with crates of Grey Goose prepped for tossage overboard as we speak. As the following chart of alcoholic beverage inflation indicates, courtesy of John Lohman, January saw the biggest month over month spike in booze inflation in 20 years. In other words, about 90% of all traders alive today have never seen a bigger jump in liquor inflation in their lives. - Zerohedge



So drink up America!  Or better yet, go invest in that beer making device or personal still since the price of food commodities are at the moment cheaper than the finished products.
