CO's Marijuana tax falls short

Discussion in 'Sports and News' started by Evil ... Thy name is Orville Redenbacher!!, Sep 3, 2014.

  1. Colorado's expected tax revenue from marijuana is about $21 million short of projections.
    On the plus side, the $11 million in revenue is $11 million in money the state never had before.
    But ...

    So, in other words, the free market is working? AND everyone on all sides of the equation are benefiting?

    That's not a free market.

    "I Got Stoned And I Missed It" ~ Shel Silverstein

    I was sitting in my basement, I'd just rolled myself a taste
    Of something green and gold and glorious to get me through the day
    Then my friend yelled through the transom "Grab your coat and get your hat, son
    There's a nut down on the corner, givin' dollar bills away"

    But I laid around a bit
    Then I had another hit
    Then I rolled myself a bomber
    Thought about my mama
    Fooled around, played around
    Jacked around a while and then

    I got stoned and I missed it
    I got stoned and I missed it
    I got stoned and it rolled right by
    I got stoned and I missed it
    I got stoned and I missed it
    I got stoned oh me oh my

    Now it took seven months of urging just to get that local virgin
    With the sweet face up to my place to fool around a bit
    Next day she woke up rosy and she snuggled up so cosy
    But when she asked me how I liked it Lord it hurt me to admit

    I was stoned and I missed it
    I was stoned and I missed it
    I was stoned and it rolled right by
    I was stoned and I missed it
    I was stoned and I missed it
    I was stoned oh me oh my

    Now I ain't makin' no excuses for the many things I uses
    Just to sweeten my relationships and brighten up my day
    But when my earthly race is over and I'm ready for the clover
    And they ask me how my life has been I guess I'll have to say

    I was stoned and I missed it
    I was stoned and I missed it
    I was stoned and it rolled right by
    I was stoned and I missed it
    I was stoned and I missed it
    I was stoned oh me oh my

    For a city that prides itself on a lively, vibrant populace, it sure does seem like there's a lot of sick people in need of "medicine" in Berkeley. Sounds like it's the unhealthiest city in the country.
    Fuckabuncha smelly hippies.
