That’s fine for wealthy people, but that’s horrible for those on fixed incomes or with physical disabilities
I hate having to pay the fee for vehicle registration every year. I know that all states have yearly or bi-annual vehicle registration fees, but they’re not all the same. I should expect our taxes here to increase after the hell that was the last two years of COVID, but that doesn’t make it any easier for me in the end. I still have to struggle with budgeting and not spending more money than what I’m making as I’m only paid once a month. And of course, that income is taxed along with my home. I wish I made more money and I know I wouldn’t be as sour about it, because I understand that these taxes go to good use across the state and the country. Plus, there are other state fees that bother me more, mainly the cost of a medical marijuana card renewal each year. The thing is, a driver’s license doesn’t need to be renewed for at least eight years in my state. Even if you lose your card and have to replace it with a new one, it’s only $25. However, the state government forced medical marijuana patients to pay for a new card every year and they’re charged $75 for it. That’s fine for wealthy people, but that’s horrible for those on fixed incomes or with physical disabilities. It limits access to people in the middle class and up, completely ignoring those who are poor and just want to legally use a plant that grows naturally on Earth. I can’t believe that our lawmakers at the state capital are either too stingy, too greedy, or a combination of the two.
