Man cited for not paying tax on pot stash [MN]

Man cited for not paying tax on pot stash
August 20, 2008 - Winona Post

Police charged a man with failing to pay taxes on his marijuana after he was allegedly found with a felony amount of the drug early Tuesday morning.

Police “patted down” the man after a call reporting suspicious activity brought them to him, alleging he matched a description of a man reported to have been arguing earlier near St. Stan’s Middle School, possibly holding a handgun.

Police had been called by a St. Stan’s employee at about 4:41 p.m. reporting that two African-American men in their late teens or early 20s were arguing with a teenage white male, who drove off in a blue car.

Then at 2:50 a.m., police were called about some suspicious activity on the 600 block of East Fifth Street. The caller suspected that two men were planning to break into a residence.

Police said that Dwight Allen Beard, 31, of Winona, resembled one of the African-American men described in the earlier call. An officer reportedly patted him down, felt a “large lump” in the man’s pocket with a “portion of a plastic bag sticking out.”

Police said that when Beard was questioned about the lump and baggy, he took off running. Chief Deputy Paul Bostrack said that when Beard ran, the officer patting him down ended up holding a baggy of marijuana, which he said came out of the pocket when the man began running.

Beard shortly tripped on a stair and police tried to apprehend him. Bostrack said that he struggled and the officers used a taser to subdue him.

Beard cut his forehead during the struggle, according to police, and was transported to Community Memorial Hospital for treatment, then to the jail.

Bostrack said that the amount of marijuana in Beard’s pocket was over the 42 gram threshold for a felony charge.

Beard was charged with possession of a controlled substance in the fifth degree, fleeing police on foot, obstructing or resisting arrest and “failure to affix tax stamps.”

State statute 297D suggests that a person “possessing marijuana or a controlled substance without affixing the appropriate [tax] stamps, labels or other indicia is guilty of a crime and, upon conviction, may be sentenced to imprisonment for not more than seven years or to payment of a fine of no more than $14,000, or both.”

The statute also suggests that each gram of marijuana is subject to a $3.50 tax.

If Beard can prove he’s already paid taxes on his marijuana in another state or local unit of government at a rate of equal or more than the Minnesota marijuana tax, “no tax is due,” according to Statute 297D.085. However, the statute also states that, “The burden is on the taxpayer to show that an excise tax on the marijuana or controlled substances has been paid,” to another state or government unit.

The statute says that a person must pay their marijuana taxes “immediately upon acquisition or possession,” and that they can be purchased from a “tax commissioner.” The statute says that a person can get such stamps without giving a name, address or Social Security number, but that such stamps and the statute itself provide no immunity from prosecution for possessing the drug.

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?
What's he supposed to do? Just walk into his local court and tell them he needs to pay taxes on his WEED?

Wow, what complete bullshit. We're going to make this substance illegal, but even if we do find you in possession you better pay your fucking taxes, the world runs on the dollar.

Sometimes you scare me.  We think way too much alike.  I keyed in on the same statement in the story and was about to type the same thing, almost word for word.  Happens quite often with your posts, to be honest.

That's cuz I live in your basement :0


But yeah, we seem to agree a lot- especially in politics/law.

I almost always agree with you on these things, which is funny cuz I don't know too many people IRL that share my views in many different areas.  :smile2:

i wasnt aware you could be charged tax on something that cannot be legally sold.

and who is to say he hadnt grown it, if he had grown it then he didnt buy it which means that he didnt have to pay taxes on it.

and they cant get him on the growing of it cause who is to say he didnt happen upon it in the woods and cut it down and harvested it.

there are ways around these things, if the government was a little less guilty until proven innocent as they are, but claim not to be.

This is my hometown. They are usually pretty easy going on weed here. He must have done something else to piss them off. They have been tough on out of towners lately, so maybe that is the case too, seeing 20 years ago there were like four black people in the whole town.

I am facing some non paid tax charges for some weed.  The police seized some of my assets including cash and vehicles because I had not paid the tax!

Only 200$ cash and one vehicle but they would've seized more if the others were in my name.  The vehicle was worth aprox. $3500.

I apparently owe 17k in taxes plus 50% because it was not paid before confiscation.
