And btw, jazzlover, perhaps legalizing MJ is a partial solution to the generational troubles in that article? With MJ tax money the schools will get funding and the pols can shift more robbing Peter attention to the boomers?
Even though I know you're being at least a little sarcastic, no one in my school study group thinks the legalization of MJ will be of much help to schools. Legalized gambling was supposed to do it, all those years ago. Didn't happen.

One reason why an MJ tax won't help is because there is NO marijuana tax, and the legislature cannot impose such a tax. All new taxes must be approved by the voters. This is at least a year away, possibly three. And, with anti-tax sentiment running rampant in the state, I am not sure it will pass.

Besides, the tax can only be used for school construction, not for school expenses. Maybe it will raise a ton of money and we can build beautiful new schools; unfortunately, we lack the resources to run them.
