I’m loving all the good weed, but these taxes need to come down. I would buy twice as much weed if the taxes weren’t so high.
The weed prices alone are high compared to even Michigan. So when I have to pay an extra $25 for a $50-$60 eighth they are in turn losing revenue. Illinois has sold $500 million worth of pot since jan 1st, $200 million in recreational. I think the gap would be shorter if prices were lower for recreational.
If you need 1 redbull from the gas station at 2.99, but its 2 for $4. More than likely you’ll buy the two. You spent more money, got more product, and they made more profit. Everyone wins.
