    (CNN) California began selling recreational marijuana today in what's seen as a milestone in the mainstreaming of the weed, and hundreds lined up to buy it.

    Lines formed outside stores licensed to sell the drug long before opening hours, and store owners said they had stocked up in expectation of huge demand.

    "It is probably our busiest day in our seven-year history," said Matt Lucero, the owner of Buddy's, a dispenser of medical-use marijuana in San Jose that holds the first license issued by California to also sell recreational marijuana. "We have folks outside; every chair in the building is filled right now."

    At Harborside Dispensary in Oakland, hundreds lined up to be the first to buy the legal weed, CNN affiliate KGO reported.

    Speaking with CNN, Lucerno said he expected a 30% bump in sales overnight, but "it looks, in looking around this room, more like 50 to 60%."
    May the FORCE be with you!

    State and local taxes add a hefty chunk to the price, and depending where it's bought, taxes can add as much as 45% to the cost.

    Wow

    Nevada was getting a lot of people from neighboring states to buy weed from our dispensaries. Now there will be less traffic from the California folks.

    They will tax it until it will be cheaper to buy it on the black market. Then they will wonder what happened to all the revenues they expected to collect.
    I love the sound of liberal heads exploding in the morning!!

    Toxically masculine and proud of it!

    I will give up my guns when the liberals give up their illegal aliens.

    It's on the 2018 ballot in Michigan. We already have medicinal marijuana. The generosity of the laws has made it so that most people over 21 can get it.

    I don't like the dishonesty of the medicinal marijuana laws. I prefer to have all-out legalization and a tax like the one on liquor, which is not 45%.

    and when the revenues fall short of their expectations, will they cut back on the spending they planned on using this foretasted revenue to fund? Hell no. They will go to the unlimited source of revenue they have become addicted to and add another tax on gasoline to cover their shortfall.
