Amendment 64-Marijuana??

So, I am sitting here this windy Thursday afternoon, cup of coffee in hand, Bode’s asleep and I have a moment to look over just what we are voting on in regards to the November 6th election.
With all the furry over who will be the next president I haven’t given much thought to “who/what” else is on the ballot. After looking it over Amendment 64, has got me thinking…..

  Summary (
An amendment to the Colorado constitution concerning marijuana, and, in connection therewith, providing for the regulation of marijuana; permitting a person twenty-one years of age or older to consume or possess limited amounts of marijuana; providing for the licensing of cultivation facilities, product manufacturing facilities, testing facilities, and retail stores; permitting local governments to regulate or prohibit such facilities; requiring the general assembly to enact an excise tax to be levied upon wholesale sales of marijuana; requiring that the first $40 million in revenue raised annually by such tax be credited to the public school capital construction assistance fund; and requiring the general assembly to enact legislation governing the cultivation, processing, and sale of industrial hemp.

I am leaning towards “yes”….I really think the tax alone could help our economy. I never have been one to entertain mary jane :/ but from a purely economically standpoint…it makes sense…thoughts?
