May have to sell legal marijuana to pay tax bill

Dear editor,

Justin Trudeau will legalize marijuana by July 1st, 2018 because he knows the only people that will vote for him in 2019 will have to be stoned.

They say they are doing this to cut out the black market sale of marijuana when in fact it is so that they can collect taxes on it. This would all be fine if they were going to have it all grown under government supervision, but they say that everyone will be able to grow four plants of their own for personal use.

How will they control this? If everyone is able to grow their own there will be no need to have government-controlled grow plants. Also everyone who is growing their own will also have some to sell on the black market cutting out the need to have government-controlled plants. The price of it will also fall, making it accessible to more people.

The police say they will have to train at least 2,000 more to be able handle the effect this is going to have with people driving under the influence of drugs. Just think what it’s going to do to our health system.

Our governments, both provincial and federal, are just thinking of new ways to get more taxes out of the people.

Instead of “Sunny Ways” it will be foggy ways for the next generations of Canadians.

As someone who has never tried pot it is really hard to write about it, but I may just have to grow my four plants and sell it to pay my taxes.
