These "hosting agreements" - municipal extortion - were specifically banned in the referendum that was enacted into law by the voters. The state legislature and governor conspired to remove that language and make "hosting agreements" of 3% mandatory! Plus 3% local sales tax as well - so the town reaches into your bag of fresh herb and takes 6% of the buds out. With the state taking what...another 17% I think?

and as the Globe points out, many towns are ignoring the 6% too and requiring more - they need to be sued or shut down by the Attorney General. Seems like the stores will be mostly for upscale occasional smokers and tourists.

"Chump change" is what I heard when talking to one of the principals involved.
That tells how much they expect to make.

I know some of the people behind the big business in mass. Needless to say they talk a lot and there in no knowledge behind the chatter. Just because you put a lot of money behind things doesn’t mean it will work out. They are out spoken about everyone growing for themselves should be Illegal so they’ll get their karma in return.

Welp, that's where the Federalists came from. My people tried to boot 'em in 1791 but it didn't work out so well. Sorry about that.


The Bostonians did protest the 3% British tea tax, which was a completely symbolic gesture. The real tax protest was on southern land deeds, which were outrageous, much as this incoming cannabis scheme. Even in terms of taxes that is at least as much as a major grocery store license.



I am sure there is so much money floating around up there that no one cares if anyone cares. Not that there aren't a few million working poor and unemployed, just saying that no one sees you.
