But drugs are illegal

Postby JRM4833 » Fri Nov 12, 2004 11:54 am

Seems Kansas doesn't care that drugs are illegal (and I disagree that they should be). They're going to tax them anyways. They now require drug dealers to use drug tax stamps for all their marijuana and controlled substances. If you get busted with a kilo of cocaine, not only will you be going to jail for awhile, they'll also bag you for tax avoidance if you don't have these little stamps on your baggies. :-? Can't we just legalize them and get this over with?

Kansas Department of Revenue wrote:Drug Tax Stamp
The fact that dealing marijuana and controlled substances is illegal does not exempt it from taxation. Therefore drug dealers are required by law to purchase drug tax stamps.

The drug tax is due as soon as the dealer takes possession of the marijuana or controlled substance. Payment of the drug tax will purchase the drug tax stamps. Attach the stamp to the marijuana and/or controlled substance immediately after receiving the substance. The stamps are valid for 3 months. Drugs seized without stamps or having expired stamps may result in criminal or civil penalties which may include fines, seizure of property or liens against real estate.

A dealer is not required to give his/her name or address when purchasing stamps and the Department is prohibited from sharing any information relating to the purchase of drug tax stamps with law enforcement or anyone else.

Purchasing drug tax stamps does not make possession of drugs legal.

The only possible benefit of such a stupid law would be the penalties would be stiffer for drug dealers.

I was all for the new law until this BS. I figured it was just a unigue way to make criminals pay more for there crimes. But, I can't see this holding up in a court of law. If I want to sell something, I need a tax ID. In order to get a tax ID, I have to give my name and address, and it becomes part of the public record. So now, never mind that they are selling illegal drugs, but the government is also giving them as a business, preferential treatment. No way this stands ..

Student charged with selling drugs to police

(Stamford-AP Mar. 11, 2004 7:45 AM) Stamford police say a student tried to sell drugs to two officers who were wearing jackets with the word "police" written in capital letters.

Police say 17-year-old Devaugn Goethe was charged yesterday with trying to sell narcotics.

Police say two narcotics officers were on routine patrol in an unmarked vehicle driving slowly when the student flagged them down.

Police say the boy opened the back door of the police car, jumped in and asked the officers what they wanted and how much.

Police say the student also mentioned that the two guys, in his words, "look like cops."

Police say the two officers were wearing raid jackets with the word "police" written in big letters on the back, on the sleeves and on the front.

The officers were wearing the raid jackets because they were looking for fugitives and didn't want to be mistaken for anything but police officers.

Not really. They don't really expect dealers to use them but it is a way to seize their property and make sure that crime doesn't pay.

Right now a dealer can serve his time and get right into his Lincoln Navigator when he gets outs. Now - if he doesn't buy the stamps they can prosecute him for tax evasion and seize all of his personal property too - brilliant!

Tax stamps? I say bust the people that come in to buy the tax stamps to begin with. :-°

Stronger penalties should be enforced without having to go to this length to do it. Simply jail them and leave them there. No more getting out for good behavior, etc. Let them rot.


As to the kid, someone shoot him. Lol. :-b
