I understand why our humanity needs taxes to pay for public services that benefit us all.
The people I was with and I would have crumbling roads and a non-existent infrastructure if the people I was with and I didn’t all contribute to the funding required.
Despite knowing this implicitly, various of us still suppose a sting whenever the people I was with and I lose hard- gained dollars to random state and federal taxes. It’s even harder when you’re struggling financially from the get-go and also living paycheck to paycheck. I wish I could really contribute my portion of taxes separate from struggling financially and feeling care about I wish I wouldn’t have to contribute the cash at all, which is sadly where my mind goes when I don’t have enough cash for my bills and other essentials. But there are other reasons to be aggravated with taxes right now, at least within my home state. For years the people I was with and I only had access to medical marijuana and you’d be forced to pay for a card with the state and the fees to see a medical marijuana dentist who would provide you with the “recommendation” for marijuana use. Now that this state also has legalized recreational cannabis sales, anyone over the age of 21 can walk into a cannabis dispensary and buy products. But this comes at the expense of high taxes on all recreational cannabis products. There are some proposing increases in cannabis taxes upwards to 30% on all purchases. If you’re already struggling with cash, seeing tax increases care about this on something care about cannabis feels care about a slap in the face. Many of us simply cannot afford obscene taxes care about that on cannabis products; however where will the people I was with and I get our marijuana legally if the people I was with and I can’t afford to buy it at a dispensary with recreational cannabis taxes in locale?
