A Bunch of Marijuana Smoking Drunks!

I just read an article that states there was more money spent on marijuana in Spokane County in Washington state then on milk, bread or wine. Sales on beer was the only thing that out sold marijuana. This makes it sound as if the residents of Spokane County are a bunch of marijuana smoking drunks. Let’s set the record straight about one thing. I do not smoke marijuana and it been a good many years since I felt like swinging from the chandeliers after drinking anything. So, even though I live in Spokane County I do not spend more on marijuana and beer than I do on anything else. With that said, I live in a county with a bunch of marijuana smoking drunks! That’s what it sounds like. But then the article goes on to say that many who buy marijuana are from Idaho and Montana. So, there, we’re not a bunch of dope smoking drunks. The state of Washington and Spokane County will get a good sum of money from the taxes paid on marijuana sales. Read the article here:
Sales of legal marijuana have out-stripped those for bread, milk and wine in Spokane County, Washington, according to retail numbers from the Washington Liquor

I always thought the Spokane area was the most conservative area in Washington State. I would have thought higher grass sales by Seattle.

The east side of the state is known to be more conservative than the west side. However, the article I read didn't tell how much grass was sold in the Seattle area, so there could be more sold on the west side of the state than the east. And we can't forget there are a lot of buyers from Idaho and Montana.

They said that here in Colorado pot outsold booze last year. The amount of tax revenue was insane. I am happy to have contributed.

Yes, the taxes from pot sales has been a lot.
