    Ammo tax stamp from TN

    I was going through some ammo I purchased a while back and I noticed each box had a 10 cent tax stamp on it from TN. I wonder if they will end up being collectible I wasn't aware any states had tax specifically on ammunition and that if they did they actually stamped each box. I found it interesting so I'm sharing it...

    Stick it on eBay. There are actually LOTS of people who collect tax stamps- anything from alcohol to cigarettes to firearms-related stuff...

    ...I've got a cannabis stamp around here somewhere. It's always good for a laugh.

    Incidentally, did you know that Kansas requires that illegal drugs have a paid tax stamp before being sold? Check out http://www.ksrevenue.org/perstaxtypesdrug.htm.

    Ha, I wish that I could say that I taxed myself stamping out a lot of cannabis, but I can't...statues of limbitations being what they be and whatnot.

    There are around a dozen states that tax illegal substances. Kansas is just one of the more notorious ones for going after dealers who don't pay up.

    Actually, Tennessee used to have a drug tax. However, I believe that it was struck down because it required identification of the stamp purchaser- self-incrimination.

    Kansas and the others don't require ID- it's just "Pay up and stamp yo plant!"

    Put that into your pipe and smoke it,

    Would that be a two stamp inhale (one for the pipe and one for the "product") or is it one stamp since anything entering a registered pre-86 pipe is covered by that stamp
