~~not having a drug tax stamp~~

I am still trying to figure out how such a boneheaded law on an illegal item is allowed. It definitely isn't constitutional. Marijuana is an illegal substance. That means that there is no such thing as a legal sale of it. Without a legal sale, there is no legal taxes.

It's called taxation without .... ooh, twinkies!
