Whether it is taxed as sales tax, or taxed as income tax, the money received from selling legitimate products at retail IS taxed. "FairTax" doesn't increase taxes on drug dealers. It doesn't. It's a myth. The money drug dealers pay for legitimate goods already counts as taxable income to the purveyors of those legitimate products.
Ok? Continuing to espouse this asinine idea that "FairTax" somehow taxes drug dealers in a way they aren't currently taxed does nothing but provide further evidence that FairTax supporters are deluded.
