If a dog accidentally consumed to much alcohol, would the owner be charged with a crime?

As far as the govt listing it as illegal yet having a tax system in place, do not forget that it is legal in the state but still illegal federally. Two different systems. Also, do not forget that it is still in the itsy bitsy beginning stages of its infancy. It has only been legal in the state for less than 2 month.
I get it GB. Money does the talking.
As far as taxes go. The local sale tax has zero to do with the federal taxes owed on an illegal product. I should have been more clear in my post.
I can see how local taxes allowed this to become a reality. No tax income, no legal pot.
But how can the federal government say this is illegal, yet require federal income taxes be paid on the illegal product?
The government is collecting money from these folks, but then turn around and say its illegal.
But yet the feds require and accept the money.
This is the point. If its illegal, then why do they require and collect tax from this product?
Anyway, watch the show if you get a chance. You then can see what I am trying to write.
