Two Packs of Cigarettes is One Ounce of Tobacco — Now Think About Pot…

With so many initiatives going on the ballot in various states (Washington, Colorado) that “legalize” up to an ounce of marijuana at exorbitant prices and with all kinds of dumb restrictions it makes sense to ask the question. How much cannabis is an ounce anyway? So I broke up a couple of cigarettes and weighed them on my trusty scale and it turns out that an ounce is basically 2 packs. This kind of puts it all in perspective doesn’t it. 

What if I told you that tobacco is legal but you can only possess up to two packs or it becomes a felony? Right. I can hear your response from here. So why do we accept that kind of hogwash when we’re talking about marijuana? Cigarettes in California cost about $7 dollars a pack so we are paying just under $15 dollars an ounce. This still generates huge profits and taxes because tobacco costs about $3 dollars a pound and even less overseas where most of it is grown. So why can’t we apply this economic structure to cannabis? That’s what I’m talkin’ about!!!
