Colorado’s Marijuana Revenue Is So High, The State Has To Give Residents Money Back
Colorado has collected so much marijuana tax revenue since the plant was legalized, that now a state law may return some of the overall tax money collected directly into residents’ pockets.
The Colorado state constitution puts a limit on how much tax money they are legally allowed to collect. Colorado has brought in so much that the state actually has to give some of the revenue back.
That means that the $50 million in recreational pot revenue collected in the first year alone of legalization is going to tip the scales of legality itself, and require some of the money to be given back. This has put law-makers and politicians in a bit of an awkward situation, as neither Republicans nor Democrats want to give any of the money collected back.
“I think it’s appropriate that we keep the money for marijuana that the voters said that we should,” Republican Senate President Bill Cadman said.
“This is a little bit of a different animal. There’s a struggle on this one,” Republican Sen. and budget writer Kevin Grantham said.
“It’s just absurd,” Democratic state Sen. Pat Steadman, said.
“I have no problem paying taxes if they’re going to schools,” a Colorado marijuana consumer, Maddy Beaumier, 25, said as he shopped at a local dispensary.
Black Domina (Hybrid)
Black Domina is a powerful smoke. The resinous buds range from a harsh peppery scent to the dark smell of blackberries. Not intended for the sweet tooth, Black Domina buds taste smoky and spicy, leaving some tokers wondering if the pipe contains hashish along with the weed. It embodies the indica high, with overpowering body effects. This strain is a great buzz for a day off or a nightcap when no serious work lies ahead. This multiple cross is basically the result of stacking four of Sensi's heaviest selected indicas in one hybrid: the Afghani SA, the Ortega hybrid developed in Canada, and a combination of the Hash Plant and the famed Northern Lights, both of which have origins in the U.S. Pacific Northwest.
