"If marijuana were taxed similarly to alcohol and tobaccos is now nationally we can help generate billions annually in tax revenues and savings to state and federal expenditures on enforcement" said Pete O'Neil, Managing Member of C&C Cannabis of Seattle.

Megan Ready, Sustainability Director with Tyee Farms explains that "the production, processing, and sales of recreational marijuana in Washington State is an unprecedented, greenfield business opportunity. Social, economic, and environmental benefits can be maximized and negative impacts mitigated if our industry adopts sustainability as a business framework.

Ready goes on to say "the potential economic benefits to the public are substantial. Many living wage jobs are being created. Tax revenue, estimated to be in excess of $500 million annually according to the American Civil Liberties Union of Washington State, will contribute to programs such as Washington State's general fund, local budgets, health care, and youth drug prevention programs. The infrastructure needs of the recreational marijuana industry create an exceptional opportunity to partner with organized labor."
