With the State in a budget crisis on the heels of the pandemic, some lawmakers are getting creative looking for revenue.

The CBS 12 News I Team is exploring one potentially profitable proposal: legalizing and taxing marijuana.

Politicians for it and pot professionals say the stigma is gone and they point out the potential for fast-cash is enormous.

For opponents, the bottom line is the doorway to addiction and sending the wrong message to kids.

Right now Florida medical marijuana patients pick up their pot at dispensaries like this Rise on Clematis Street.

Soon, they could be joined by recreational users, though the marijuana industry doesn’t like the term "recreational." They prefer “adult use” marijuana.

The emerging legal cannabis industry is going global, with a growing list of countries that have legalized cannabis for adult and/or medical use, and even more countries exploring a similar move. At the same time, the world’s climate is changing, with extreme weather patterns picking up in frequency and severity all over the world.

Climate change is affecting virtually every aspect and sector of the agriculture industry, and that is likely to be the case for cannabis too as outdoor cultivation is permitted in more areas. As the global cannabis industry continues to expand across the planet, and climate change, unfortunately, marches on, the problem for cannabis entrepreneurs is going to be more pronounced.

Hopefully, in time, these cities will reevaluate the deleterious effects these ordinances have on sales taxes and consumer choice.

Arizonans knew zoning issues could cause headaches for dispensary owners. However, what was unanticipated are the new bans by some of the Arizona cities for recreational marijuana establishments.

Shortly after the passage of Proposition 207, otherwise known as the Smart and Safe Arizona Act (the “Act”), several Arizona cities moved to ban recreational marijuana sales, unless the dispensary is a “dual licensee”. A dual licensee means an establishment that is licensed both as a medical marijuana establishment and an adult use (or recreational) establishment.
