Marijuana and the IRS

(guest post by Lanny Swerdlow)  The California Democratic Party has passed a resolution condemning the use of an IRS code section that disallows marijuana dispensaries from deducting most of their business expenses from their federal income taxes. As a consequence marijuana dispensing businesses are required to pay taxes on almost every dollar taken in. This results in usurious and unsustainable taxation rates that would drive any business into bankruptcy.

Al Capone was brought down for not reporting income from the sale of alcohol during prohibition and not for the actual sale of alcohol. In a similar manner in 1984, at the height of the Reagan Administration’s escalation of the War on Drugs, the United State Congress directed the IRS to disallow businesses that illegally distribute schedule 1 drugs from deducting business expenses from their federal taxes.

Today’s Recipe: Banana Strawberry Cough Smoothie

Cannabis Infused Vegan Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Marijuana Smoothies are a tasty and healthy way to ingest your medicine.  Even though there are no dairy products or sugar in this marijuana smoothie, it’s still creamy, sweet, and satisfying.  Using frozen fruit to make marijuana smoothies allows you to achieve a thick texture without diluting flavor.  Add the optional ground hemp seeds for an additional nutrition boost.

Use Kief or Hash to medicate this recipe.
