why isn't nj actively thinking about increasing gas, cigarette and alcohol taxes. What about revenue from legalized marijuana.

We already increased the gas tax significantly.

When you raise the sin taxes too high, people just buy off of the black market. This already happened with cigarettes. It will happen with marijuana when the state tries to charge confiscatory taxes for the product. People will just go buy from the black market. Anyone with a closet and a grow lamp can grow cannabis.
