I want to create a thread for interesting and thought provoking articles

 

I'll start with this article that old school dealers for pot still account for a good chunk of pot sales.  In Canada, apparently only 27% of the pot sales are via legitimate channels.  I guess if you can save 77% on your pot purchase, there is incentive to skirt paying the excise taxes.  This really isn't that different than people bootlegging cigarettes from Virginia and bringing them to NYC.  The delta can be $7-8 a pack.  Load up a van with $5,000 worth of cigarettes at $5 a pack, and your profit margin is likely 100% for a trip up I-95.
