Cheers and long lines of tourists and locals alike greeted the first day of sales of recreational marijuana on Saturday as Nevada became the fifth state with stores selling pot to the public in a market that is expected to outpace all others in the U.S. thanks to the millions of visitors who flock to Las Vegas each year. Supporters claim $10 million in taxes will be a windfall for NV. Such claims were made in Colorado, it took a couple of years for tax revenue to really start to flow. Through October, Colorado has collected more than $150 million in taxes from legal marijuana sales. This from $1.1 billion in sales. Must be one hullva export market to support over a billion sales.... I wonder how bad the crime will go up as it has in Colorado.
