CO Lawmakers Finalize Marijuana Tax Rules

Because it can't be legal unless you tax the hell out of it

|


The Colorado legislature on Wednesday gave final approval to a bill asking voters to impose taxes on recreational marijuana, inching the state legislature closer to becoming the first in the country to pass laws regulating recreational pot.

The state Senate approved the tax measure and another one spelling out rules for marijuana stores and then sent both to the House on Wednesday morning. The House quickly passed House Bill 1318, the bill on marijuana taxes, and sent it to the governor. House members will now take up the second measure.
