“We’re here to pay taxes”

“We’re here to pay taxes, create jobs, and improve our communities.”

CLICK!

Silly me. I thought you were here to sell high-grade medical marijuana with the best service and lowest price consistent with quality. I’m sure your customers don’t patronize you to pay taxes, even in Oakland CA.

That was a quote from the guy who owns 4 medical marijuana dispensaries, who suggested to city officials that they should raise his taxes. and the “Click” was me turning off NPR Morning edition in stunned disbelief.
