Reconsidering pot's teaspoon of tax revenue: Cannabis Weekly (WashingtonPost.com)
New legislation has been introduced in the House to include cannabis companies in the next stimulus package. Boris Jordan, executive chairman of Curaleaf Holdings Inc., has commented on the parallels between the current economic environment and the lifting of Prohibition during the Great Depression. "Prohibition was lifted and alcohol sales were taxed because the federal government and the local governments needed the revenue. We expect over the net 12 to 18 months that significant changes in regulation will bring cannabis into the mainstream in the U.S. as an industry."
