As the marijuana industry continues to grow in Colorado, a lot of the money is also going towards public education.
The Mind Unleashed recently report on how legal weed sales are effecting Colorado. So far so good!
Not counting medicinal weed sales, Colorado sold nearly $19 million in their recreational weed market in the month of March, and $1.9 million of that goes straight into government coffers and towards building schools. At this pace, according to PolicyMic, Colorado will make $30 million this year in pot taxes alone.
It is clear that cannabis prohibition had a slew of negative effects on the community. Colorado is leading the way for how legalized cannabis can bring in funds that support the positive components of society <3
