Letters to the Editor

High time for taxes

If buying lottery tickets is foolish, then governments are taxing fools. If buying cigarettes and alcohol is foolish, then governments are taxing fools. If buying marijuana is foolish, then criminals are exploiting fools.

Fools will always be fools. If we don’t let the marijuana fools pay taxes for their foolishness, then we are even bigger fools.
