In Colorado, Legal weed is paying off the state's educational system. And recreational marijuana taxes have exceeded expectations...raising WAY more then it did the previous year... 2015 total to $13.7 million, edging the $13.3 million it raised in all of 2014.
Money is LITERALLY growing on trees.
This is a classic case of something controversial working in favor of the state. When the state allowed the use of recreational marijuana, there was lot of backlash.
It’s awesome that they are using the taxes for a productive cause...Like building and improving schools.
Now I wonder how much more they are making in tourism because of all the people coming to Colorado for the weed? ...Only time will tell how the legalization of the drug is fully expanding the states economy.
