We here in Legislative District 38, and many other areas of Nebraska, are facing a tremendous shortfall of funds for necessary services and infrastructure. Everyone laments the property tax burden but see no relief in sight.
Seriously, if we'd get our heads out of the ground and look at what more enlightened states have done, we would see that there is a way out ... legalization, and TAXATION of recreational marijuana.
The financial benefits alone would be worth looking into. We would not only reap benefits from a new source of tax income, we would reduce the costs of enforcement, legal actions, public defenders, incarceration, and the amount we now spend supporting the families, with social services, of those incriminated by prohibition.
More to come.
