Why wouldn't there be the same recourse as now? Impaired driving is impaired driving. You can't drink in public, why don't we apply the same law to pot?

Whether you're impaired by an illegal substance or a legal one is a separate issue. In any case, studies in other areas show that legalization would cause a temporary spike as people try the new product followed by leveling off and even decreasing consumption. Holland's consumption is far below America's per capita usage.

The key to this discussion is where you are located. Every state has a different take on the brewery topic. A few states actually have a tax break for brewers who brew small amounts (relative) per year. When researching opening a small brewery I was able to find most all of the tax and regulatory information online.

Quick Answer: It's possible, depending on where you are located. It's far from a get rich scheme...

Oklahoma is a no tolerance state, a seed can get you a yr. I wouldn't ever condone smoking in front of children or in public, and feel they should treat it the same as DUI/DWI. I am just saying the prison system is overloaded with personal drug prisoners and we have to live with rapists and someone thinks the drugs are worse?

Back on topic for myself, I wish they would lower the mandatory amount you have to produce and allow more brewers to get licensed. I guess they don't see the fact they would make more taxes with more alcohol being produced. Make it harder to be a certified brewer, with local inspection to make sure your above board. This would never happen in Oklahoma though, they would first have to change the liquor laws so you could sell refrigerated above 3.2%ABW beer.
