I have said that once the other states see what kind of tax revenue can be made from marijuana, states will scramble to make it legal. States have a long history of making budgets on the backs of “sinners” in extra taxes on booze and smokes. Well now we have proof as a giggling Governor John Hickenlooper of Colorado announced a plan to start spending nearly $100 million in marijuana tax money from recreational pot sales and what it plans to do with the funds. They include $45.5 million for youth use prevention, $40.4 million for substance abuse treatment and $12.4 million for public health. The money comes from a 10 percent sales tax on recreational pot sales, which began Jan. 1.
