    I was giving you a list of places that have decriminalized it so you can go check the prices. This still isn't even a pure model to look at as full production in most of the places can be ramped up. In a place where you can freely grow and sale something with out having to go to jail or your customers go to jail or be fined, guess what is going to happen to your supply.
    illegal products that are not stolen or boot leg is always more expensive.
    Also here is another parallel

    When you can sell weed legally street dealers(that only deal in weed) will largely go away. Yes they are still out there but honestly how many people are peddling alcohol with out the proper permits. --not counting the bootleg ****-- I mean the guy with the still in his back yard making his own stuff to sell to his neighbors and **** without paying the tax man.

    Without before and after prices, or at least prices from venues that distribute after legalization, how "cheap" the weed is would simply be a matter of opinion. Like I said, we need more information.

    That guy with the still in his backyard tends to make a lot more money than you seem to think. And what is the difference between the "bootleg ****" and the guy in his backyard? Or did I read that wrong and they're one in the same?

    No you need more information. Like I said you can look at all sorts of cases that are similar to this. Such as prohibition. If your going to sit there and say theory blah blah blah and can't use deduct reasoning based on similar situations please do save your money and don't go to college.

    Never said the guy with the still didn't make good money.
    Instead of bootlegging I should have said counter fitting. For every instance of me saying bootlegging replace with counter fit or counter fitting.

    And how do prices compare to those sold legally?

    Sir, you are the only one using "theory blah blah blah" as your argument. I said we need numbers, not speculation. What part of we need before and after blah blah blah do you feel the need to skirt around? Address what I've said recently, not my first post or two on the topic.

    Please don't tell me I need to forget about college because I'm too st st stupid and then continue to use words(?) like "counter fitting". It's counterfeiting, and it had nothing to do with the OP.
