To Whom It May Concern:

The United States Library of Congress has selected your website for inclusion in the historic collection of Internet materials related to the Legal Blawgs Web Archive. We consider your website to be an important part of this collection and the historical record.

The Library of Congress preserves important cultural artifacts and provides enduring access to them. The Library’s traditional functions, acquiring, cataloging, preserving and serving collection materials of historical importance to foster education and scholarship, extend to digital materials, including websites. Our web archives are important because they contribute to the historical record, capturing information that could otherwise be lost. With the growing role of the web as an influential medium, records of historic events could be considered incomplete without materials that were “born digital” and never printed on paper.

Critism of analysis of local marijuana taxes in California

“an independent California cannabis tax expert . . . said that . . . the city (Lemon Grove) could bring in $560,000 at 4 percent and $1.12 million at 8 percent.”

$560,000 X 2 = $1.12 million.

So if the city taxed it at 16%, they would bring in $2.24 million, and if they taxed it at 32%, they would bring in $4.48 million, and if they taxed it at 64%, they would bring in $9.96 million?

Well, there wouldn’t be a huge drop-off going from 4% to 8%, but there would be at least SOME bit of migration to the black market and to lower-tax jurisdictions.  So revenues would not exactly double.  They’d be less.

Close enough for government work?
