Why it pays to listen
I’ve been helping my neighbor prune a very old apple tree as well as doing the same to a couple of mine. We chatted while working and he was expressing his frustration over the inability of the State of Maine to come up with a simple, easy to understand method of regulating growing marijuana for personal use. “Why not have each plant require a $20 fee paid at the town office. If somebody doesn’t register their plants, toss them in jail.”
I thought about it and realized his idea made a lot of sense, but I told him that instead of crowding the jails with stupid people, hit them with a triple fee when they’re caught. Bottom line, local control, local revenue sourse, everyone understands the rules. What do you think?
