Data from the Oregon Liquor Control Commission show that the legal marijuana shops in the tiny Oregon/Idaho border town of Ontario have topped over $103 million in sales in just over sixteen months of operation.
Accepting all the problems of marijuana use (of which there are few) while sending all the tax money out of state and spending more tax money in a futile attempt to stop it is stubbornly, accurately Idahoan.
The reason you don’t hear from voters on the issue is because the Idaho legislature in 2013 declared marijuana shall never be legal, even for medical use, and because in 2015 the governor became the first and only to veto legalization of CBD oil for epileptic kids.
For half a million dollars, Idaho could have been the next medical marijuana state. Making the ballot has always been the only question, as polls have consistently shown about three-in-four Idahoans are for it.
I used to be a Twitter power user, but since Elongated Muskrat has turned it into a Nazi pub, I have migrated to Mastodon. My stoner podcaster persona resides at stoners.social/@RadicalRuss, and my political talk radio persona resides at mstdn.plus/@RadicalRuss, so now you don't have to follow the one you don't like.
