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…..
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?
