Marijuana Sending Kids to College, Instead of Jail?!
After voters approved a tax on local cannabis growing operations to fund scholarships for higher education, students attending college in a southern Colorado county will soon have a chance to tap into the state’s lucrative legal marijuana industry. The county clerk’s office said on Wednesday voters in Pueblo County approved by a 60 percent to 40 percent margin a measure that imposes a 5 percent excise tax on cultivators who supply Colorado’s medical and recreational marijuana industries. Pueblo County spokeswoman Paris Carmichael indicated this was the first time in the United States scholarships will be created from taxes come by the legal marijuana industry.
