Colorado marijuana tax

I don't smoke pot, (it makes me even more paranoid and annoying than I already am), but this graph really intrigued me... Exactly how much tax will Coloradans be paying on their dope next year?

Colorado marijuana tax

At the moment, it looks like somewhere between beer and a deck of ciggies... EXACTLY WHERE IT SHOULD BE, AMIRITE!?

So, not bad, considering the government COULD have made it something ridiculous like a 50% revenue raiser.

Why post this? I just think it's really cool to see it on a graph between some things we are really used to seeing on graphs. Maybe next year we will start to see some nice graphs on how few gay marriages have ended in divorce or the planet exploding.
