By establishing an excise tax on recreational marijuana and an occupational tax on marijuana businesses employees, the federal government can bring in much needed tax revenue to help fund the government.
It’s hypocritical for the federal government to collect taxes on a substance it doesn’t recognize as legal. It should either make marijuana legal at the federal level, or not collect taxes on the sale of it in states that have legalized it.
