Why do I think the video needs a “citation needed” flag? It’s cute, and I’m ready to buy that legalization = happy people and more tax revenue, but I’d like to see some estimates of tax revenue generated if legalization actually, you know, happened.
For me, it comes down to the math. How much in taxes would we estimate after legalization? Until you have a number, you can’t really make a logical case either for OR against.
Cute cartoon, though.
You could count the number of little cartoon people getting high.
