Debunking Myths: Tobacco, Alocohol, and Taxes

One of the most pervasive myths surrounding the logic behind the reasoning that Marijuana is illegal is the concept that since marijuana is a natural plant it can't be taxed. The argument goes "You can't grow your own cigarettes at home, nor can you distill your own alcohol so the government can tax those things, but marijuana can be easily grown at home and that scares the government." This logic is just plain silly on a number of levels.

Sure, not many people have a distillery in their back yard, nor do they have a tobacco aging and curing house. That being said, both can be done at home and surprisingly enough its not all that difficult. Both require some knowledge and some work, but really so does growing marijuana. Sure marijuana is easier, but in the case of tobacco the real work lies in aging the tobacco, if you don't do that you end up with an inferior product but still smokable.
